Most likely a lubrication problem. These motors can easily become "gummed up" from use. I normally would remove the motor and hold it with the shaft vertical, I would then apply a few drops or 3in1 motor oil just above the bushing (bearing) and allow gravity to move the oil into the bushing while turning the motor by hand. I would flip the motor over and do the same to the other bushing. This motor should spin quite freely. Do not over oil. once the motor is spinning freely, wipe any excess oil from motor and reassemble and test.

Let me know what you find

How do you clean motor on Flair? Fan will not turn


The motor shouldn't need cleaning that would prevent it from turning on. When was the last time you cleaned the machine?

I cleaned my Flair air purifier, The motor turns on but not the fan even after lubricating the fan shaft and giving the fan blades a little push. Any suggestions on how to get this going?


The Flair is no longer manufactured nor serviced by EcoQuest, and the company is now Vollara. If what you're hearing is the fan motor (there is no other motor associated with this machine), it might mean that either it's totally seized up, or that the oil just has not penetrated deeply enough.
1) Turn the machine over and remove the large screw in the bottom. The chassis will then slide out (I assume you've already done this in order to reach the fan shaft.)
2) Firmly pull on the fan blades near the center in order to pull them free of the shaft.
3) Turn the chassis on its back, so the fan shaft points up. Drip a small amount of lightweight oil (sewing machine, hair clipper, 3-in-1) on the shaft and turn it manually to work the oil down the shaft. Continue doing this if you feel the shaft loosening up.
4) Set the chassis upright, tilt it forward, and drip a small amount of oil on the rear opening to the fan shaft. Continue manually turning the shaft and tilting the machine to work the oil in.
5) Replace the fan blades and turn on the machine, depressing the safety switch manually, to see if the fan will begin to turn.
If it won't turn, it might mean that the fan motor is entirely seized up. You may be able to find a local small appliance repair person who could replace that motor.
Your other option is to call Vollara customer service at 800-989-2299 and ask them to explain your options. Use #16618 if you need a dealer referral number.

Only one plate inside, it's glass edges are broken or deteriorate


I haven't seen an older Flair that I know of. There will be as many slots for plates as are required. The filter is definitely washable. Use an enzyme cleaner and rinse with hot water. The fan motor should be oiled every month or two. It should cost less than $100 to get it running in top shape.

Hi vonniekay,

Absent any more details about your situation, this will get you started.

1. Make sure the safety cut-out switch on the lint screen in the back is properly engaged by the plastic plug on the screen. If this is out-of-position, nothing works (nor should it). This may fix the problem.

2. Check the fuse; if blown again, you have a short someplace that the fuse is protecting you from. Look for loose connections, or damaged components. Also make sure that nothing got left in the machine (eg. thread from cleaning rags), or any wires didn't get properly re-connected when you cleaned it.

If this doesn't fix it, write back with more details - - will the fan run, but not the O3 plates, or vice versa - - I'll need more infomation at that point.

If/when this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Fan trouble with Flair


remove the retaining screw from the bottom of the unit and slide the insides out the back. use WD40 with the plastic extension tube, spray into the motor armature/stator and turn with your hand until it is free spinning then reassemble and turn on.
this is an ongoing problem with my unit because the air and all contaminents are pulled directly to the fan.

My Fan on My Flair purifier is not turning when I turn on the unit. Nervous about poking around in there don't want to break it, any ideas how to fix this? Thanks


To fix it..........there is one screw on the unit on the outside.........really long!.......remove that and the entire unit just slides out of the housing..........

The replacement fan motor can be purchased on ebay....ranging from $21.95 to $32.95...depending on the model Flair that you have...the most common one is the $29.95 replacement...

Really quite simple to remove and replace!!! and well worth it!

Hope this helps.
