I have an older model Flair unit. I took it apart to try and give it a good cleaning and noticed that there was a small glass bulb-looking part with one of the thin wires was broken. Of course the other...

It's attached to the pulse radio-wave ionizer. It comes on when the unit is on to show the radio wave is working. It's not needed and I've never seen a replacement but Radio Shack could probably help you replace it if you wanted.

We have model 11502 air purifier. Recently turned it on and it ran for a few minutes and then stopped. Motor sounded fine- no squealing, didn't slow down before it went off- just stopped like it was...

Yes there is a thermal cutoff that will shut the motor off for a period of time to protect it from getting to hot. If this is what happened after 20-30 mins. the motor should come back on and run again. If it does I would try to clean motor as best I could using a soft brush, vacumn, and blow out with air if possible. Clean fan of f as best you can to help motor run cooler.Hope this helps.Thank you

Fan motor making noise. Can I get a replacement fan?

If the "noise" is a fluttering sound (like fan blades are engaging housing or other internal structure), you need to trace this and clean or adjust it internally so it doesn't hit stuff. Cleaning it periodically (monthly) should be a given.

If the fan motor itself is grinding/losing a bearing, you will need to replace the motor. Note that there are different models/configurations for various models, you need the right one. I used to buy mine direct from EcoQuest, but they've changed owners in the last year, don't know if they still sell them as parts.

I think you can find motors on the Web, but you'll pay a premium price for single units, better to buy a used purifier off eBay/craigslist or find one at a garage sale, and cannibalize it.

I think I have one fan motor left in-stock (new); I can check to see if it's the right version if you want. I'd want $30 for it, plus shipping - you can likely do better than that if you're willing to hunt.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using,

Evcon Model EB15B Elements glow red for 3 minutes then cycles off. Fan stays off during the cycles. Manual fan switch will turn on the fan. Assistance requested, cls

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

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.

The motor that activated the purifier is no longer running, the filter light is on and I have changed the filters, but still the motor will not run. It is only 1.5 years old. Does anyone have a solution...

Why is it not running? Motor defective? Receiving power? Device that switches power to motor working? You have to localize the issue before shopping for parts.

Make sure you have the filter on the back on the right way and not reversed. On the Ecoquest Breeze you should plainly see the obvious pull tab, at the top of the back filter panel, after putting the filter back in place.
