Question about Ecoquest Fresh Air Living Air Purifier

1 Answer

I have an ecoquest fresh air purifier and the end of a red wire was corroded so I replaced the end with a new one, but the unit doesnt seem to be producing any ozone smell or sanitizing. It seems as if the unit is just blowing air. The only message I have on front is to change the bulb, but that has been on forever and the unit worked before with that message. Please help, I love this purifier.

That corrosion is oxidation for the lug connecting the grid plate.Metal contact fingers make contact on the plates metal grids.The same corrosion exists on those metal contact fingers and the plate itself. Clean the fingers,ensure good connections as the other wire connector spade for the other contact finger is probably compromised. You might de-oxidize the plate by soaking in pure white ammonia.At any rate,I agree about the quality of the machines and you might be faced with a small parts order from eco-quest.Do include the plate, a bulb and the bulb starter. I run 5 of these in a commercial setting and they are fairly enjoyable to work on.

Fresh air yd-700a e001 error


My unit would display e001 and e003 errors. Cleaning the filter and replacing the ceramic ozone plate did not fix it. Ended up taking the board out and inspecting it. Three capacitors were bad. After replacing, the system is working again.

I have a Eqoquest fresh air air purifier, I had a flood and water was inside unit, insurance company wants to know cost to repair or if needs to be replaced, where do i go to get it deemed...


The simplest way is to do a Google Search for you make and model air purifier. You'll be able to see what they sell for now. I can tell you this though, if that unit was under water, it can't be repaired. It's been contaminated.

My Ecoquest Fresh Air purifier display reads: NEEDS RCI CELL. I have ordered one online, is it safe to run the unit until I receive and replace the rci? I can already tell a difference in allergy symptoms...


By all means run the unit while you wait for the new RCI cell. The purifier will be less effective in killing germs while the RCI cell is out. It will still work to reduce the allergens in the air. Hope this helps you.

Unit stopped working ,checked fuse,is still good,what should be done next? i am a lic.electrician so i have tools and testers just need a bit of help .... thank you ,mike


Open up the back of the machine and look inside for any corroded, broken, loose, or missing wires. One of the issues with the Fresh Airs was the corrosion of the screws and ends of the wires. There is a replacement kit of non-corroding components which can be ordered from Vollara (new name for EcoQuest 800-989-2299).

Also, make sure all components are inserted firmly and correctly. The RCI cell (honeycomb/UV light) must be seated in both ends and turned firmly, like installing a fluorescent light bulb. Other models of the Fresh Air have a separate UV light, ballast, and copper or white slanted screen. The UV/starter must be inserted correctly.
The 4" white ceramic/screen plate must be inserted into the tracks, top and bottom.

The cord must be inserted firmly into the socket in the back of the machine.
The little switch should be pressed so the "I" end is depressed and the "0" end is up.

If none of these seems to be the issue, the possible problem is with the computerized components, and only the company can deal with those! Call the above number, and they'll give you your options. Use #16618 if they request a referral number.

Ecoquest Fresh Air Purifier Quit Working


My husband came home and checked out the unit. He discovered that the cord was bad, so he replaced it with one we had. It works fine. The cord plugs into the unit at one end and into the wall at the other end. There was no rewiring needed. Problem solved!
