The fuse is contained in a compartment just above, but integral to the plug receptecle on the unit (where the cord plugs into the unit). First unplug the cord from the unit. Next pry the fuse out with a small straight screw driver. If you own the 110v version (as opposed to the 220v unit) you'll need the 1.6 amp slow blow fuse. For the 220v unit use the 1 amp slow blow fuse. Just match up the fuse you remove from the unit. The above information was found in the manufacturerers owner manual. Found online at:

Won't turn on

Might be a fuse BUT it is enclosed in the unit. You would have to take it apart to see. IT could also be other parts in the power supply that have failed, With that in mind, if you do take it apart, take pictures so that you can put it back together.

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.

Came home and unit was off and cannot turn back on. No response at all. Cleaned it and still nothing happens

Check to make sure the screen is pushed down in the back to activate the failsafe button. Sometimes the button can get finicky. Take off the screen and push it down with something. See if it does anything, if not, check the fuse and the plate, if it cracks, it's blow the fuse later.

I have the living air classic. When I turn it on,

The common things to check are the fuse, and make sure the filter tab is making a connection to the safety switch. You can find the fuse and the filter tab on the back of the purifier. Hope this helps.

I cleaned my Ecoquest, it was working fine, how no power

Assuming that the unit was working fine before you cleaned it. Did you remove the back lower panel while cleaning it? It the panel that holds the electrical socket and fuse. If you did, check to see if the electrical connector is seated to the main board. Also check if the keyboard connector (the one that looks like a telephone jack) is plugged into the main board. Also, check if you model has a switch on the back that it is set to the on position. And press the power switch on the front keypad to see if that make the unit work. That all I can think that might have gone wrong.

I have 5 air purifiers Ecoquest, Alpine all in need of repair, need someone in Tempe, AZ to look at them. Thanks

The problem:  EcoQuest is now Vollara, and has discontinued the sale and service on the Breeze machine.  Some of the machines may have basic problems which you can troubleshoot. 

1)  If absolutely nothing happens when the machine is plugged in, check the fuse.  Replace if needed with the EXACT same size (usually available at auto parts stores).  Also check the plug, making sure it's inserted firmly and is not frayed or broken.

2)  If the machine turns on, buzzes, but the fan doesn't turn, you can remove the front grid and fan blades and oil the shaft with a light household (sewing machine or hair clipper or 3-in-1) oil.

3)  If the fan turns, but no/little purifier odor is emitted, check the plate(s).  Inspect them carefully for any flaws, cracks, loose seals, broken screen filament, discoloration, burned spots.  Any imperfect plates must be replaced.  (Call Vollara Customer Service at 800-989-2299, using #16618 as the dealer referral number.)

4)  Clean plates which show no defects.  Use a solution of ammonia/water 50/50.  DO NOT USE any kind of sudsy or scented ammonia, nor any cleaning solution which is merely ammonia-based.  DO NOT use detergent or any other cleaning product!  Use a soft brush to scrub, then rinse well.  Blow-dry or air-dry.  DO NOT USE any kind of towel or cloth to dry!  Avoid touching the screen mesh with fingers.

5)  Clean antenna ionizer (the circular metal object) and the plate contact "fingers" with a cotton-tipped swab and alcohol.

6)  Double-check to see that all parts are inserted and aligned correctly, and that there are no visible loose or corroded wires.

If none of these options works, the problem is most likely in the computerized works, and cannot be easily repaired.  Perhaps some machines can be used for parts and a knowledgeable electronics person may be able to reconstruct a couple of working machines.

You can attempt to locate a dealer near Tempe by going to and entering your zip code in the "Find a dealer" link.  Or you can call the above customer service number and ask them to find a dealer for you.

Does not turn on

Fuses often fail without appearing to be bad. Test the continuity of the fuse by using an ohmeter.

If, after testing your fuse, you continue to have a problem, let us know and we will dig deeper.

I hope you find this to be very helpful as a jumping off point, moving forward.
Please leave a rating. :-)
