    MY FLAIR FAN MOTOR DOES NOT WORK...MY HUSBAND SAID HE COULD INSTALL IT IF WE COULD FIND OUT WHERE TO BUY THE PART.

    ALL THE PARTS THAT SEEM TO BE AVAILABLE ARE FOR NEWER STYLE PURIFICATION SYSTEMS.

    NOT THE FLAIR.

    Our unit is just sitting there--no noise, no fan turning. Ours is only a couple years old at the most.

To fix it..........there is one screw on the unit on the outside.........really long!.......remove that and the entire unit just slides out of the housing..........

The replacement fan motor can be purchased on ebay....ranging from $21.95 to $32.95...depending on the model Flair that you have...the most common one is the $29.95 replacement...

Really quite simple to remove and replace!!! and well worth it!

Hope this helps.

How do you clean motor on Flair? Fan will not turn


The motor shouldn't need cleaning that would prevent it from turning on. When was the last time you cleaned the machine?

I cleaned my Flair air purifier, The motor turns on but not the fan even after lubricating the fan shaft and giving the fan blades a little push. Any suggestions on how to get this going?


The Flair is no longer manufactured nor serviced by EcoQuest, and the company is now Vollara. If what you're hearing is the fan motor (there is no other motor associated with this machine), it might mean that either it's totally seized up, or that the oil just has not penetrated deeply enough.
1) Turn the machine over and remove the large screw in the bottom. The chassis will then slide out (I assume you've already done this in order to reach the fan shaft.)
2) Firmly pull on the fan blades near the center in order to pull them free of the shaft.
3) Turn the chassis on its back, so the fan shaft points up. Drip a small amount of lightweight oil (sewing machine, hair clipper, 3-in-1) on the shaft and turn it manually to work the oil down the shaft. Continue doing this if you feel the shaft loosening up.
4) Set the chassis upright, tilt it forward, and drip a small amount of oil on the rear opening to the fan shaft. Continue manually turning the shaft and tilting the machine to work the oil in.
5) Replace the fan blades and turn on the machine, depressing the safety switch manually, to see if the fan will begin to turn.
If it won't turn, it might mean that the fan motor is entirely seized up. You may be able to find a local small appliance repair person who could replace that motor.
Your other option is to call Vollara customer service at 800-989-2299 and ask them to explain your options. Use #16618 if you need a dealer referral number.

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.

The fan makes noise when turning


It probably need oiling. The fan motor should be oiled at least every two months. For complete cleaning instructions (including oiling) e-mail to miller@healthyti.com. Ask for their free cleaning instructions. They will be glad to help.

Fan trouble with Flair


remove the retaining screw from the bottom of the unit and slide the insides out the back. use WD40 with the plastic extension tube, spray into the motor armature/stator and turn with your hand until it is free spinning then reassemble and turn on.
this is an ongoing problem with my unit because the air and all contaminents are pulled directly to the fan.
