Question about Ecoquest Fresh Air Air Purifier
Your fan motor probably needs additional maintenance, in the way of lubrication.
After removing the unit from power, access the Fan blade and spin with finger. If there is any resistance to note then the spindle running through 2 bearing surfaces needs lubrication.
See the other question/answer to fan removal - motor lube.
If you have any sort of humidity to contend with and have a FreshAir model F1 or earlier different type, they seem to have some corrosion problems after a period of a couple years.
It is just a function of the machine/job that necessitates such maintenance.

Make sure you lay the machine down on its back when you lub it. The oil will lub behind the fan. WD 40 works.
