Also make sure the safety interlock switch is properly closed when re-assembled. It's the springloaded switch inside the little notch in the chassis - the small tab on the lint screen should fit in and push that switch closed. If you do it wrong, the unit won't work. You should hear an audible click when the tab closes the switch.

The fuse for Model #XL-15 is 240 volts, 1 amp approximately 1 1/8" long.

Several sites offer them for sale, one such site is at Alpine air products:

Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier - never taken out of box - won't turn on whatsoever. Plate is accurately placed and the rear filter is properly fitted.

Is the fuse in properly? Try popping it out and put it back in, also check it when it is out..just to be redundant since you did it already. push on the bottom of the filter the switch pushes in . I at pushed down my first time.

My XL-15 won't power up. Everything seems to be in place but when I flip the power switch to the on position, nothing happens. I have looked at the fuse and it looks ok. Could there be another...

Hi Jan,

If the fuse is good and you are sure your outlet has power, then check the safety switch is being depressed. On the back is the lint screen, there should be a clip that depresses the switch. Hope this helps you.

Got no power on my alpine xl15, someone told me the rectifier seems to fried and to change it, does anyone know where I might order this part? Thank You, Nemo Kim

Please check the fuse first. Unscrew or unlatch the small knob at the back of the machine and inspect the fuse. Even if it looks OK, you probably should replace it. Be sure to get one that is the EXACT same size, available at an auto parts store. If the fuse was the problem, the new fuse should allow your machine to power up and work well.

Make sure the plates are inserted firmly and correctly into the grooves at the top and bottom, so the fingers press firmly on the screen portion.

If the fan now works, but you aren't detecting any purifier (or hearing the buzz caused by the electricity cycling through the plates) you'll need a new transformer. This sends the power through the contact fingers to the plates. Vollara (formerly Alpine/EcoQuest) no longer makes the XL15. The newer machine is called the Classic. Call customer service and they'll tell you what your options are. 800-989-2299. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

Alpine air filter X15 not coming on, what could be wrong

I would check the line fuse located near the power cord. The other thing would be the safety switch. Make sure the clip on the lint filter is making contact witht the safety switch.

I just purchased a used Alpine Air XL-15 from ozone spell

You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

No lights no fan on Alpine Air XL-15

Use a DVM continuity function to see if the fuse is blown, and check all the DO FIRST literature packed with the thing. You probably get to take a note out of the ionizer chamber.
