I cleaned my unit a week ago, removed the plate inside and replaced it with a spare I had. When I put everything back together, the unit run just fine, however, it appears there is a problem with the unit, because I do not get the clean air smell in my house. I am not sure if this is a lack of ionization or another problem and I have no idea if something on the unit needs to be replaced or repaired. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
When you clean this unit, the plate should be soaked in a 50% amonia to water solution for about 8 minutes. Take a toothbrush and scrub each side of plate and let copletely dry. Take a qtip and dip in rubbing alcohol and swab each of the metal electrodes that touch the plate....This should have that freash air smell back again.!!

The purifier should be cleaned about once a month and you should do the following:
Unplug the Breeze before cleaning.
Wipe the Breeze with a soft cloth dampened with water, vacuum the front grill to remove any lint buildup.
Cleaning the rear lint screen - You can either vacuum the filter or you can wash in hot water. Allow to dry before reinstalling the lint screen. Do not use soap, it will damage the carbon material in the lint screen.
Remove the purifier plate from the purifier and soak in 1 part amonia and 1 part water solution for 10-20 minutes. Gently scrub the metal grid on the plate with a toothbrush and rinse with water. Clean the metal contacts with the same solution. Allow the plate to dry overnight or use a hair dryer to dry throughly.
The most common problem I have found with Breeze ATs not producing ozone is corroded terminal ends. The second most common problem is the coil that energizes the plate.
The terminal ends are easily replaced. If the coil is bad, it is my understanding that Ecoquest is no longer servicing the Breeze and I don't know a source for them.
Another possibility is that the contacts which touch the plate are not making firm contact.
make sure the bulb and starter are working....do you see blue light emmissions from the inside of unit? That and the grid plate are the major players in this machine.clean plate,soak in ammonia and clean contact fingers that can get corroded including the female spade connectors for the wiring.
Singer sewing machine oil works great. Remove the front grill and carefully remove the fan by sliding it off the shaft. Where the shaft meets th4e motor, place three or four drops of oil. Spin the shaft and wipe off the excess. Place the fan back on the shaft, flush with the end of the shaft. In the rear, remove the lint screen and the ozone plates. Put oil on one end of a Q-tip over a trash can until it drips off. On the rear of the fan motor, push the Q tip against the shaft so that oil oozes out. Again, spin the fan. Repeat this process every time you clean your Breeze and it should never squeak again.
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.
Whenever you clean or replace the plate, you must also clean the contacts that touch the plate, and all supports for the contacts. Clean them with 70% or higher isopropyl alcohol and Q tips. You should also clean the ionization point with a Q tip and alcohol, remove and clean the fan and oil the fan motor front and rear with a drop or two of sewing machine oil. Replace the fan so that it is flush with the end of the shaft. Make sure that the contacts are firmly against the ozone plate when you replace it. They sometimes barely make contact and then don't work well. You can bend them enough to make them fit firmly.
