Motor runs but wheels don't turn

If you have used it for a long time then minerals in the water may have built up somewhere and now needs to be removed wither by cycling a cleaner of some sort or physically scrubbing the moving parts yourself.  The first ting to try is unplug the machine, remove all the filters, and try cleaning with vinegar. Smells bad I know but following up by cleaning with a regular detergent should remove the smell. Detergent alone will not break up the calcium, the acid in the vinegar does that. Next we need to find out what gears may have slipped or if there is a belt out of place. If everything mechanical is in working order then the cam from the motor to the rest of the unit may be shucked in which case it would depend on where it is broken to determine the best repair. Please, if you could as some problems like this are not always simple, take a look at your particular unit and provide me with some further description of what is going on.

How to remove the fan motor on fresh air purifier

Place a drop of two of sewing oil or other light oil on the fan at the shaft. Tap lightly on the fan with a teaspoon to create vibrations. Push the fan on slightly, then place two fingers on opposite sides of the fan, reaching all the way under the fan to the shaft to pull it off.

How do I replace the fan motor? also, how do I get the fan off?

To remove the fan, you need to remove the front grill. Unscrew the 4 screws on the corner of the grill, then remove the grill. The fan can be removed by just pulling on the hub. The fan motor is attached to the machine by two nuts that face the back of the machine. So you need to remove the guts of the machine to unscrew the nuts.

To remove the fan motor, you need unscrew the screw that is above the AC plug, to remove the back grill, then remove the filter plate. Once that is removed, you need to remove four screws that holds the lower plate that houses the AC plug. Once that plate is unscrewed, then disconnect the power conector from the main board and then the green ground lug to free the AC plug.

You will need to remove the main board. To do that, you will need to disconnect the keypad/display connector. It the one that looks like a telephone RJ connector, its located near middle of the main board. Next, you need to unlatch the red wire that runs down from the main board to the front of the machine. Once that is undone, then the alunimum chasis that hold the main board can be slid backwards giving you access to unbolt the two nuts that hold the fan motor.

Hope this helps you.

Do I need a new fan blade if I replace the fan or will the old one go back on fairly easy? Ecoquest fresh air

If you need to replace the fan motor, the fan blade can be removed by grasphing the center hub of the fan and pull the fan straight out of the purifier. I remove it every time I clean my machine, since it easy to clean it once it is removed.

I have an Oreck air purifier model (air 4000). The power light is on but the fan will not turn unless I put it on high speed and manually push the fan to give it a jump start for it to start running but...

I tried that solution and it did not work due to the worn bushing. I went on line to CSH incorporated and ordered #534 Open Ventilation Fan & Blower Duty motor. The motor is a ball bearing motor rather than bushing, and is an exact replacement for the Fasco motor on the original. The repair is easy and a cheap repair at cost of about $67 dollars for the motor plus shipping. The unit now works great again.

Water wheels do not turn

Unplug the unit from the A/C outlet.  Turn the fan unit over, and with your finger, spin the fan as fast as you easily can.  Tooth like projections should rotate out of the lower most part of the assembly.  These teeth drive the wheel.  If they don't come out, the problem might be in the seating of that silicon rubber nipple, or the "tooth" assembly could be gummed up with algae and deposits.  You can wash it out.  The problem with mine is the teeth work, but the wheel still doesn't move.  I have emailed the sales office for help.  I love the unit's performance, but it is temperamental.  Good luck, and please post, if you fix it.
