If you removed the lint filter screen (on back), note that you have to properly depress the safety cut-out switch in the back (depressed by the plastic nub or C-ring that should be attached to the lint screen. If not properly engaged, prevents electrical operation (O3 plates and fan) of the purifier.

Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier - never taken out of box - won't turn on whatsoever. Plate is accurately placed and the rear filter is properly fitted.

Is the fuse in properly? Try popping it out and put it back in, also check it when it is out..just to be redundant since you did it already. push on the bottom of the filter the switch pushes in . I at pushed down my first time.

Power won't come on switch does'nt lite up fan does'nt work

First, are you sure that outlet that the unit is plugged into really works? The other situation would be a blown fuse on the back of the unit. Also, make sure that the filter on the back of the unit is seated properly and making contact with the safety switch. Check all three things. It could be any of them.

Does not turn on? looked at fuses and then inside the unit I noticed I only had two of those screens inside.

Guy, there's only supposed to be 2- Ozone Plates/Screens in the Eagle 2500. The reason it probably would not run, is when you took the aluminum filter off the back, you failed to reinstall it properly. Look at the bottom edge of the filter. You should see a plastic prong sticking out. That's sort of a trigger. If you don't fit it in the slot on the housing of the cabinet properly, it won't trigger the safety switch and allow the unit to run when you turn the switch on the front ON. Just make sure the prong is much tightly into the unit.

Hopefully that will solve your problem.

Cannot get the 'SERVICE REQUIRED" light to turn off even after cleaning the plate with ammonia and water.

Just remove the filter from the back of the unit. You will find an Ozone sensor above the fuse. Carefully remove
it and put the unit on MANUAL mode and the service light will go out. It was put there to help comply government'
requirements and really service no purpose. It did not properly monitor anything so just operate you unit in the
MANUAL mode like the original Classics and it will be fine. Remember to throughly clean the unit once a year.

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.

Sharper Image has recalled the units after Consumer Reports reported that they didn't work. They went to court Sharper Image couldn't prove that they did work, was ordered to pay all the legal bills, and filed for Chapter 11.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to issue a report at the end of the year on all ionizers. Their decision will effect sales of all ionizers in the U.S. With EPA data indicating that not only do they work but there harmful to use, it's beginning to look like the product is going to vanish.

Wont run after I cleaned it

On the model 30200 there is a safety interlock switch actuated by a plastic tab (about 4" down from the top of the front filter cover) on the right side. Assuming that all you did was take off the front cover and clean or replace the filter(s) and the unit was working previously, this should be your answer. If in taking off the cover the switch actuation tab was broken off, you could (carefully) wedge a tab into the slot where the switch resides. This defeats the safety aspect of certifying that the unit isn't running when you remove the cover. The safe work-around is to unplug the unit before you open it for service.

Can't turn it on -- need manual

you have to plug the unit into the wall directly and not to a power strip or UPS. Then just choose the speed for continuous filtering.
