Metal screen cleaning? pads required?

I have a Flair purifier 120v that is about 5 years old. I have never cleaned the metal screen and I don't have any other pads that I use. Should I use the pads? Is soap and water what I should use to clean it? Thanks.

    Do you need to use Harsh Environmental pads for this unit or are they optional?

    What type of lint screen do you recommend? I see there are a bunch of different options. Can you enlighten me on the differences?

Soap and water will work just fine. Rinse thoroughly with hot water. I'd dry it with a hair dryer before reinstalling it.

"Should I use the pads?" -- Could you please clarify this question.

thanks...

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?

Running but does not have that clean air smell.


If the unit has not been cleaned regularly or recently, that is more than likely your problem. The interior is simply covered with dust. Clean the unit according to the Owners Manual instructions and you should be getting the ozone smell again. If the unit is more than 5 years old, you may need to also replace the plaques inside. These can be purchased online from the manufacturer.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

No ozone smell can it be repaired or do i need to buy another unit


You can try a couple of simple fix-its before deciding what to do.
The plates (4" white ceramic squares with screen glued to center of each side) must be clean and inserted correctly.
1) Soak the plates in equal parts plain ammonia/water for 5 minutes. Scrub gently with a toothbrush or small veggie brush. Rinse well. Blow dry or air dry. DO NOT use a towel or paper to dry it off. Avoid touching the screen with your fingers. Clean the metal fingers with a cotton swab and alcohol.
2) Insert the plates firmly, making sure they go in on the tracks, and that the contact fingers rest firmly on the screen part.

If you still detect no ozone, it's probably because the transformer is no longer working. Vollara (formerly EcoQuest/Alpine) no longer repairs or sells the Flair. You may be able to find someone (former dealer perhaps) who has parts and repair skills, or else you'll need to find another machine.

Open the back and change the Ozone plate. then slide out the ION plate and clean it with denatured alcohol. If no light inside, you may have to replace the bulb and / or starter. Hope that helps.

Ecoquest Flair Air Purifier leaves black residue on walls and...


Hi there,

The black residue is what is in your air. The reason for it to cling to the walls is the Ionization process that the machine creates. The ionization is to create a clean breathing space, free from contaminants. All particles floating in the air will be negatively charged and cling to each other or to objects in the room (like walls) that are positively charged.

If you cook, there is some smoke created, or when you burn candles. These greasy particles will stick to the wall or to surfaces. Cleaning them up regularly might help. You can also try another product from EcoQuest called EcoH which is based on enzymes and cut through that grime easily. That might take the black stuff off the walls.
