If it's an XL-15 or Classic, there are four screws through the bottom that hold the main chassis in-place. But first:

1) Unplug the unit, and remove the lint filter in back.

2) You'll need to remove the power switch (carefully pry out with a screwdriver or putty knife), disconnect the spade terminals (note which wires attach to which terminals), and remove the knobs for Fan and Ozone controls.

3) Remove the four screws. As the chassis slides out the back, you'll need to disconnect the spade terminals to the fan motor as well.

Clean thoroughly, make sure everything is re-assembled with good connections in reverse-order. Be particularly careful to leave any sensors clean and connected.

Do not know what to do when the service required light is on on a Alpine LIVING AIR XL15 IONIC AIR PURIFIER OZONE XL 15. How do I service it?


Hi JoAnn,

Alpine purifiers need periodic cleaning, as dust and dirt from air moving through the unit is electrostatically deposited on internal components; enough build-up can cause short-circuits and diminished peformance. The ozone-discharge plates need to be cleaned monthly, and the inside wiped down at that time. The lint trapscreen on the back also needs to be cleaned (I use hot water in my kitchen sink with the spray-nozzle). I recommend an old toothbrush dipped in household ammonia for scrubbing the plates, and an old sock dampened with ammonia for wiping the inside spaces. The ammonia fumes can be unpleasant, so if you can do this outside or in garage, do so. Also, rinse the plates thoroughly to remove any ammonia residue. Just make sure the discharge plates are COMPLETELY BONE-DRY before putting them back in, otherwise, you risk shorts, and potential damage to the plate. Use the toothbrush without the ammonia (preferably dry) to dust-off the sensor in back that triggers the "service required" light. Iif it's like the ones I've worked-on, it should be connected to another light inside, but I recommend checking your owners manual to help identify the location and description of the sensor.

About once a year, a thorough cleaning (using a brush to get the accumulated gunk out of the nooks and crannies) is recommended). This involves disconnecting the fan leads and (if so-equipped) the needle-point ionier after removing the four screws through the bottome holding the chassis in-place. If you're not comfortable working with wiring and spade-terminals, you may want to use a keyboard vaccuum brush (long-necked tube with a brush on the end available in office-supply stores and the like) to reach in instead.

If this helps, please rate me... thanks!

Every time I clean the filter and the plate the ozone doesn't come on. I usually can fiddle with it and it will come on, but this time it didn't. What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it? this...


The plate is going bad. Sometimes it's just a bad part of the plate that has corrosion under it, try turning the plate and sliding in again. Sometimes that's all it needs. Sometimes it just needs to be brushed well, cleaned, and then blow-dried.

What needs to be changed on this model and how often


Nothing, for at least 5 years, if you clean it regularly. Which means at minimum, of every thirty days. Especially the air intake filter on the back and the plaques and any dust build up you see inside the unit. A can of Compressed Air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) works well for cleaning the dust out.

About 5 years down the road, you will probably have to replace the plagues (also called plates).

When it comes to air purifiers, it's like Benjamin Franklin said, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness."

Hope this info helped, Misty. Please let me know.

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

How often does the manual suggest changing the glass plates?


Clean the filter and dust out the inside from time to time. If the plates are slightly chipped, it mon't matter. Mine has been in constant use for about 3 years. That's all I do and it works just fine.

Cleaned the plates and the back filter and went to turn it on and it will not turn back on


Be sure the tab on the filter is making the safety switch click in and stay in. Sometimes, all you need to do is push in on the lower right corner a little and it will start.

Alpine Air Living Air XL15 not producing Ozone or Deodorizing. New plates


Confirm that the appropriate sections of the circuitry are powered up and drawing power; check the interlock switch action; toss it back to the maker because the Hi-V transformer or ladder circuit or sense or hold caps were (if testing proves) never quite functional.
