How do I fix an air purifier?

Check where wires attach to collector plates. Possibly there is a a burn mark there. Or these units also spark when humidity is very low.

Machine is very noisy especially on silent mode.

Check the fan bearing. Lubricate with spray grease on the spindle but be prepared to replace if no better.

Can't find Bemis 200 001 Air Purifier Manuals

Perhaps, the reason you're having a difficult time find an Owners Manual for your model, is that it's been discontinued. However, the manufacturer, Essick Air Products may be able to help you. You can call their Customer Support Dept @ 800-547-3888 or you can email them a request at . Either way, I think they may be able to help you.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do I replace the fan motor? also, how do I get the fan off?

To remove the fan, you need to remove the front grill. Unscrew the 4 screws on the corner of the grill, then remove the grill. The fan can be removed by just pulling on the hub. The fan motor is attached to the machine by two nuts that face the back of the machine. So you need to remove the guts of the machine to unscrew the nuts.

To remove the fan motor, you need unscrew the screw that is above the AC plug, to remove the back grill, then remove the filter plate. Once that is removed, you need to remove four screws that holds the lower plate that houses the AC plug. Once that plate is unscrewed, then disconnect the power conector from the main board and then the green ground lug to free the AC plug.

You will need to remove the main board. To do that, you will need to disconnect the keypad/display connector. It the one that looks like a telephone RJ connector, its located near middle of the main board. Next, you need to unlatch the red wire that runs down from the main board to the front of the machine. Once that is undone, then the alunimum chasis that hold the main board can be slid backwards giving you access to unbolt the two nuts that hold the fan motor.

Hope this helps you.

My xl15 runs but does not produce ozone. The little Rulien fan on the little ozone maker does not run. the regular fan works though.

You realize this is a really old machine!! The little fan is for ozone level detection, not production.
To see if the machine still will produce ozone
1) Set the switch to manual rather than auto and always run it on manual.
2) Remove the back of the machine and remove the 4" white plates. Check them for cracks, breaks in the mesh, loose mucilage, discoloration, burned spots, excessive grease or nicotine, or particulates such as dust, dog hair, or lint. Clean the plates using a solution of 1 part plain AMMONIA to 1 part warm water. Soak 5 minutes, brush with a soft brush, rinse well, and blow dry. DO NOT use any kind of cloth to dry the plate. Avoid putting fingers on the mesh.
3) If the plates are damaged in any way, call Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) and order replacements. 1-800-989-2299. Use #16618 as the dealer referral number if you are no longer in touch with the registered distributor who sold you the machine.
4) Insert the plates, making sure the metal contact fingers press on them firmly.
5) If none of the above works, most likely the power to those contact fingers is no longer strong enough to arc through the plates.
6) Call customer service, and they'll explain your options.

Oreck XL air purifier motor failure

My Orek was making such a bad noise that my wife was going to sell it at a garage sale, I'm glad she didn't. It takes about 20 minutes to fix. All you need is a phillips screw driver, can of compressed air (or air compressor) and a can of silicone spray.
Pull out the filters and turn the unit upside down. Using a phillips screw driver unscrew the 9 screws holding the bottom to the top. remove the bottom. Use care as to not damage the fan. The fan will stay attached to the motor , pull on it and use a good cleaner like 409, Simple Green or a similar product. Wash clean and dry. Next get out your air compressor and clean everywhere, see the silver bearing holders on the side of the motor? Get out your can of silicone spray and give a good squirt on both bearing (close to the shaft. also spin the motor with your hands. See the large thing attached to the shaft? Those are the windings. See the metal housing the winding spin close to? Spray the silicon in there, a good amount. Make sure you didn't get any silicone on the end of the motor shaft where the fan sits on. If you did get some nail polish remover or acetone and wipe clean a few times. Then reassemble.
My Orek was horribly noisy, now it's quiet. My wife says is beeter than new.....

Fan Noise

Your fan motor probably needs additional maintenance, in the way of lubrication.

After removing the unit from power, access the Fan blade and spin with finger. If there is any resistance to note then the spindle running through 2 bearing surfaces needs lubrication.

See the other question/answer to fan removal - motor lube.

If you have any sort of humidity to contend with and have a FreshAir model F1 or earlier different type, they seem to have some corrosion problems after a period of a couple years.

It is just a function of the machine/job that necessitates such maintenance.
