Question about Ecoquest Flair Air Purifier

My Flair Ari purifier makes much more noise

My unit makes a high pitched whining noise when it runs. It made very little noise ( not noticable) when I first purchased the unit new - about two years ago.
Thanks for your help.

Sounds like Motor or bearing is failing.
You could order parts but you will find it less expensive to replace unit. Than trying to repair.

Please rate. Hope this helped. If i can help you further let me know. Good luck!

I have a Flair air puifier but no ozone smell. I replaced the high voltage transformer( it was a 3500 watt instead of a 5000 watt transformer) The red light now flickers but no ozone smell . It has ne


Your ozone generator may have gone bad. It's the small black rectangular looking apparatus located near the bottom of the unit. It usually has a zip tie holding it to the circuit board. You will have to take the Flair out of it's case to see it. Make sure it's unplugged and remove the bolt from the bottom of the unit. You can then slide the framework out of the casing. It's also possible that it's time to replace your Ceramic Ozone Plates. They have a life expectancy of 2 to 4 years. The Flair has two of them that slide into slots in the rear of the unit. You can see them when you remove the washable filter. All items can be purchased on Ebay. DM

CLEANED FILTER. PUT THE FILTER BACK IN AND NOW IT IS MAKING A CLICKING NOISE. TOOK THE VACUM TO THE FILTER AND IT IS STILL MAKING THE NOISE


The clicking noise is the sound of the high ionizing voltage 'shorting' due to dirt or humidity or both which provides the pathway for discharge. Cleaning and completely drying the filter(s) does not always help, in this case switching the unit to a lower operational speed can mitigate this problem. New filter(s) may be needed to resolve the clicking.

I have the Flair Air Purifier. Everything except the light seems to be working. When i push the button, the fan jumps into high mode for a couple of hours as it is supposed to, but I don't notice any...


if you pull the unit out of the black box ( one screw on bottom) and then turn the unit up side down, their is a glass fuse in it. See if it is blown, their is also a fuse just for the ozone part it is marked F21 on the same board, it is soldered in the board, it is a black round fuse marked 400ma 250v on some models

The little light inside does not work


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

My Alpine Air 880 makes a sizzling noise. I turn the dial down and it gets better. Whats the problem?


The sizzling is the high voltage "bleeding" to ground inside of the collector module, or the high voltage electronic circuit.

First, unplug the unit and remove the module. Thoroughly clean all electrical contact points where the module makes connection. If it possible to operate the unit without the module in place, then replace all covers, plug the unit in, and attempt operation. If you continue to hear sizzling, then unplug the unit, remove covers, and continue to clean, digging deeper into the unit to find traces of accumulated dust/dirt. Also be on the lookout for burned areas in the plastic, around insulators, etc. High voltage is a mighty beast, and will easily track to ground, causing a sizzling noise.
If you don't find anything there, then take the modele and look for any tracking points on the insulators. Look very closely at the ionizer wires for accumulated lint, which creates little points where high voltage can bleed to ground from.
You may get popping of high voltage as well. When this happens, note the places where it occurs, and those places become suspect of causing the sizzling sounds.
Let me know what you find. These guys are cantanckerous at best.

Motor makes a whining noise, but otherwise seems to operate as normal.


It's probably a bearing in the motor, (dry or worn) if the whining starts getting louder then you will need to have the motor replaced.
