Round Metal Disk type thing in Alpine Living Air XL-15

Inside my Alpine Air Xl-15 Air Purifier there is a round metal disk looking structure that has broken off it's post after many years. I don't know what it's called so I can't find anything that looks like it online. It is connected to the screw that has the little orange lamp on it.

Hi Chipster7_20,

It sounds like the little round electrical spade terminal is what has broken off. If you aren't comfortable working with electrical (this is a fairly high-voltage environment, BTW), you might want to find a local electrical repairman to replace and re-attach it. EcoQuest no longer does support for XL15s, so it's up to little independent dealers/handymen like yours truly to keep these machines going. You could ship it to me, but it would probably cost more for shipping than having a local do the work.

If I mis-understood your description, please write back with more details. If you could reply with a digital picture it would help. (use the little tree-picture icon in the toolbar above to post it).

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 Fixya.com,

Jon

My living air xl-15 prove it light does not come on anymore and it seems that the unit does not prodoce ozone. I tested the light in the normal postion set at 12:00 with the plate out but to no avail....


If you are sure that the plate is clean, in perfect condition, and inserted correctly, it would appear that the transformer is defective. This means that power is not going through the metal contact fingers into the plates.

The light probably has burned out. It is not essential to the working of the machine, so it isn't anything you need to be concerned about.

Vollara (formerly Alpine/EcoQuest) is no longer producing or servicing the XL-15. However, a newer version, called the Classic, is available. You can call Customer Service 800-989-2299 and they will tell you your options. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

No lights no fan on Alpine Air XL-15


Use a DVM continuity function to see if the fuse is blown, and check all the DO FIRST literature packed with the thing. You probably get to take a note out of the ionizer chamber.
