SOURCE: My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a

The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

SOURCE: my honeywell air purifier is emmiting an awful

Mine quit too... The led screen went blank so I changed the battery. Now it does nothing. I totally disassembled it as the fan was turning stiffly.(should spin very easilly) The grease in the end bearing was stiff. I washed the gummy grease off the shaft and reoiled with synthetic oil. Your smell is probably motor windings overheating. I disassembled the electronic control and was disgusted to see that there is a glass fuse soldered to the circuit board. I believe the only reason for this fuse is to cause us consumers to needlessly replace otherwise good equipment. (It cost more to pay a repairman to replace the hidden fuse than to purchase a new unit)The fuse is not blown. At least this fuse actually looks lide a fuse unlife the stealth fuses most electronics have hidden in them. I can not obtain a wireing diagram on my 17005 unit but it has a black box inside behind the control panel. It looks like a small start capacitor, but it has a temp rating on it of 70*C. I suspicion it is a single use over heat safety which triggered when my motor got hot due to stiff bearings. I refuse to play their game and purchase a new air cleaner. I love this one... So, if I can not determine what that little black box is, I am going to bypass all the crappy electronics and just drill a hole on top by the handle and install a hi/lo/off manual switch directly to the motors wire hasness. This machine will never give me problems ever again, and if I oil the motor every couple of years with synthetic (Ander oil) this unit WILL last me for the rest of my life...

How to choose a good air purifier?

Choosing an air purifier is a daunting task, especially if it's your first. Many buyers are disappointed when the product chosen does not seem to solve their particular problem. Filters are essential in keeping fungal spores, microbes, aerosols and any air pollutants out of your household. Check out air purifier with washable filter and which is HEPA certified.

It is not putting a good smell in my home, It smells like cigarette smoke. I have a classic air purifier, and a newer model with ultraviolet light. They both do not put a good smell, in fact the one in...


Hello, To smell like cigarettes, you would have to be smoking ? I would recommend calling the manufacturer and describing this problem to them. Somethings going on, and I would start there. I hope they can be of help to you.
Good Luck, Shastalaker7

Hi Teresa,
that is certainly not the smell the machine should produce :)

The smells, other then fresh air, might be 'trapped' in the filter. So washing the filter (top rack of the dishwasher works for the metal mesh filters) might do the trick.

Another trick you can try is to put the purifier on the floor, turn it on high mode (away mode) and put a box over it. Let it run for an hour or two and the smells should be gone.

Make sure you have fairly new plates, to make the machine more effective.

Air Purifier smells like chlorine


Mine does too. Did a little research - I guess all air filters let out a little bit of ozone. Some describe the smell of ozone to be something like bleach yet others say it smells like geraniums or even "sparks" (like the sparks that come off of the bumper car ride at the fair...hmm...interesting). Not sure which to believe, but I know mine smells.
I found a manual talking about reducing this smell. Said the first couple of weeks are the worst of it, but if it still bothers you, you could install an "activiated carbon filter" down stream from the air filter, or go through complicated instructions (for whatever model they were talking about) to go into the of the machine and switch stuff around.
Both solutionssound complicated to me.
I'm just happy knowing the smell is normal and that it is actually working. Think I'll live with the smell.
