Blinking 'Check Collector Cell' light

which model XL series do you have? There is obviously something shorted or arcing on the plates of the cell. look at the plates and see if they are laying flat and the wires are all still attached across the front of the cell. A loose, sagging, broken or bad contact on the end plates will cause the bad cell lights. clean off the area where the cell makes contact inside the unit. The metal strips that run across the ends of the cell make contact with the plates inside the cell and get their power from them, dirty contacts in any part of these contacts will cause the problem. Even a bad contact from the end cap to the plates inside the cell will cause this. Try wiggling the cell around, kind of push on it on edge to get the plates to shift slightly and clean the points where the plates touch the outer strips on the sides. Check for arcing with the lights turned off,

How do i replace the release lever on a hoover windtunnel

This is definitely one of those "easy when you know how" things. No screws or plates or anything to remove. It is a case of getting the old one out and slipping in the new part:

The part clips in so you need to unclip the old (broken) one to get it out.

You need a small flat head screw driver to unclip the old one. You come into the opening via the UNDERSIDE of the vac as in pic one. You will release it and pull the old part out via the top side.

Below is a pic of the removed (broken) part. The arrows show the two round nipple like ends and these are what you need to release using the screw driving (and then pulling the part out the top).


Once you have the old part out the new one is slid in via the TOP of vacuum and clicks into place

This next pic gives you an idea of what you are trying to achieve.
The RED arrows are the new part in place. The YELLOW arrow shows what the "two round nipples" click into.


Sorry the pics are not better.

My breeze unit blows a fuse when turned on,,,the fuse in the unit

First of all, make sure that the replacement fuse is the EXACT size required. Check to see that all contact points in the machine are pressing firmly on the inserted plate. You may need to turn the white posts to adjust those metal contact fingers, or bend them so they're firmly in place. The plate may be broken or dirty. Order new plates at 1-800-989-2299 (Vollara is the new name of the company.) and give 16618 as the dealer referral number.) Look to see if you can see any obviously loose wires inside, also. If none of this helps, contact us at and perhaps we can help you. The Breeze is no longer being marketed/repaired at Vollara, but we do have some parts and machines in our older stock.

Living air xl 15 One of the two glass plates inside has broken along the edge of the mesh. "Adhesive" material that appears to hold the mesh in place is blackened as though burned. Fan will come on but...

Broken discharge plates have to be replaced, otherwise the high-voltage shorts-out through the break. The glue being burned is an additional clue.

The fan is a separate circuit/function.

Replace the glass plates (purchase from EcoQuest Intl. or from a EQI dealer near you, expect to pay ~$20-30/plate depending on model and shipping costs. I also sell them as I am an EcoQuest™ dealer, though the shipping charges may make me less economical than someone local to you. If you want my contact info, please respond with a "FixYa" rating - thanks in-advance.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using,

A spring leg (at the bottom of the grid) broke. The spring is still intact. Is the leg replacable or should I buy a new grid or unit?

The company went under and doesn't service them anymore. It's possible you could find a local repair place that might be able to do something, but there is no authorized or trained service station, and you can't get parts.

You might be able to pick up spare parts if you scour eBay long enough.

Good luck!

Rainbow rainmate broken.

You can do one of two things: order a new spin wheel from ainbow, or you can go to Lowe's or home Depot and get a product called GOOP. Get Marine Goop if the store has it. Put toe Goop on the edges of the broken parts and let it set a minute and then put the two broken pieces together. Spread a thin layer of GOOP over the crack onto both broken parts and let is set about ten minutes or so while you hold them. set the part down in a way that doesn't throw the parts off kilter and let them dry overnight. Problem should be fixed.
