I've had one for many years...Remove the plates,gently wash in warm amonia water and scrub GENTLY w/ a semi stiff plastic or nylon brush like you use or a used tooth brush. Then dry well with hair dryer...you'll have that fresh clan smell again. Clean the rear filter also the same way...

I have the Flair Air Purifier. Everything except the light seems to be working. When i push the button, the fan jumps into high mode for a couple of hours as it is supposed to, but I don't notice any...


if you pull the unit out of the black box ( one screw on bottom) and then turn the unit up side down, their is a glass fuse in it. See if it is blown, their is also a fuse just for the ozone part it is marked F21 on the same board, it is soldered in the board, it is a black round fuse marked 400ma 250v on some models

HELLO AND GOOD MORNING I HAVE A FLAIR AIR


Open the back and change the Ozone plate. then slide out the ION plate and clean it with denatured alcohol. If no light inside, you may have to replace the bulb and / or starter. Hope that helps.

My flair works o.k. except the santinizer doesen't work. I have one ozone plates that is broke on the corner of the plates and there is a black line running through it. Could this be the problem?


The ozone plate will not cause the sanitizer button to not work but it may have caused the button to short out. The sanitizer switch probably needs to be replaced. The plate definitely needs replacing, when there is a crack in the plate it causes an electrical arc which is burning the black line onto the plate. Please remove and throw away that plate.

Ecoquest Flair Air Purifier leaves black residue on walls and...


Hi there,

The black residue is what is in your air. The reason for it to cling to the walls is the Ionization process that the machine creates. The ionization is to create a clean breathing space, free from contaminants. All particles floating in the air will be negatively charged and cling to each other or to objects in the room (like walls) that are positively charged.

If you cook, there is some smoke created, or when you burn candles. These greasy particles will stick to the wall or to surfaces. Cleaning them up regularly might help. You can also try another product from EcoQuest called EcoH which is based on enzymes and cut through that grime easily. That might take the black stuff off the walls.

Hi Teresa,
that is certainly not the smell the machine should produce :)

The smells, other then fresh air, might be 'trapped' in the filter. So washing the filter (top rack of the dishwasher works for the metal mesh filters) might do the trick.

Another trick you can try is to put the purifier on the floor, turn it on high mode (away mode) and put a box over it. Let it run for an hour or two and the smells should be gone.

Make sure you have fairly new plates, to make the machine more effective.

XL-15 Classic Living Air emmitting Foul Odor!!


Ionizers do cause a bad odor to happen. I work in the copier business and do work around machines that can cause an ozone to happen when there are ran. Copiers like ionizers can cause an ozone to happen because the air particles are being electrically charged. The smell isn't good to be breathing in as well.

Here is an EPA report about ionizers

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be making a decision about the health effects on ionizers by the end of the year. Their decision can effect selling ionizers all together.

This industry should have been regulated years ago and after what happened to Sharper Image this year due to their arrogance it isn't doing the industry any favors. They went out of business because of Consumer Reports findings and tried to sue them for it.

If you really want the air in your house cleaned, the best way to do it is using a hepa filter.

You need to order two ceramic plates and a lint filter. The lint filter is the one that goes on the back. The two glass plates are what ionizes the air. They do not make them from glass anymore. You will need to go to the ecoquest website nd order the parts. It will run you right about $75. Ecoquest bought Flair out a few years ago. Hope it helps.

When ionizer is on even


Hi willy,

The ionizer itself shouldn't smell. I wonder if you're smelling O3 (aka ozone or activated oxygen), or if there's a short-circuit of some kind that is causing electrical components to overheat/burn. Burning electronics and singed hair smell more alike than ozone (which isn't the same as ionization, incidentally.

Write back with more details if you can, preferably with any details about your observations.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
