Re: GE Adora microwave worked 20 minutes ago. Now,...
Sometimes if a lot of steam has been produced while cooking, water may collect under the turntable plate and run down the spindle into the turntable motor. This can short circuit the motor and it will take the fuse out with it.
The fuse is usually housed in a plastic tubular case about 2inches long. Split the tube apart and replace the fuse if necessary (it's something silly like about 7000 volts). Switch on and check to see if anything else is not working like the turntable, lights, or fan etc and replace as necessary.

Is it dead? does the motor run? Fan blow? No freshened smell from unit, only stale odor? You haven't given any usable info here but I'll address a dead unit condition for you: power cord stretched/damaged, on/off switch bad, fuse/cicuit breaker(if any are used).
I have taken one apart. reassembled and the fan would not turn, although there was power to the motor and it wanted to turn. Sorry this is long...only this is about taking the motor itself apart..and I have yet to find a replacement motor.
1. Tried a little WD 40...(only on iron motor Housing!) nothing. 2. Took apart inside of motor. some rust inside.. 3. carefully rubbed clean with WD 40.. 4. leaned off WD 40 with contact cleaner... 5. Then worked little bearing loose on back side. -Kind of turned upon reassembly.. 6. Found some silicone High temp lubricant and took motor inside part again. 7. a very thin coat of lubricant inside rotor. -Re assembled yet again..began to turn at high speed, kept running..24 hrs.. - It .finally turned at silent mode. and continues to work This may be ar beyond what you want to do, however if all else fails...what else can you do? buy another one? Tips: 1. mark rotor holders with housing. (do not reverse.) 2. make sure you remove all lint, dust, etc inside. 3. the rotor bearing I had to work by hand again and again repeatedly syringing a little WD 40 at a time to until it turned easily.
Odors from a vehicle takes 2-14 hours on "high". Depends on the odors. Run the AC & heater fan for 20 minutes also when the car is full of ozone and have the unit aimed up on the floor toward the firewall on high. You should not stay in the car while doing this. Mild new odors can be neutralized in 20 minutes to 2 hours. Bigger and older problems take longer.
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.
the fan has to be on while the strips are on. knowing that the fan comes on when you switch it to on at the thermostat but not when your just calling for heat indicates that you have somting wrong with the heating relay or the fan isnt wired properly to the heating relay (posssibly a new motor during the summer) or just a bad relay. when the first stage heat comes on it should also energize the motor the first to come on is also the last to shut off which will make sure the fan runs during the whole heating cycle. until you remedy this you can run the heat just keep the fan switch set to on so its running, this will not hurt anything
How you proceed is going to depend on how comfortable you are taking it apart.
Given it's age and purchase condition, warranty isn't an issue. You will either be able to dis-assemble the purifier and try taking the motor apart and reassembling, or you can find a replacement motor (I've seen some on the web, they start at ~$50).
