Question about Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier

1 Answer

I cleaned my alpine air XL-15 and it will not go on.

I checked the inter lock switch but I can not tell if it is working. Is there a way to test it to see if works correctly. I reinsatalled the Glass plates the metal clips that hold the pates must make contact with the metal sceen bonded to the glass, correct.

Yes, the plates contact the screen. If you used soap on the plates there may be a residue. Use nonsudsing ammonia OUTDOORS and a toothbrush, then rinse thoroughly and let it dry before putting it back. It may take a few minutes of running to get the ozone going again after that. The interlock switch on some units is pushed back to go on, on others pushed down. Make sure the little plastic doodad (or metal on older units) is pushing the switch properly - you'll know if the fan doesn't go on.

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.

I have 2 Living Air XL-15 that no longer will power on. I have checked and the clip that depresses the switch is fine but nothing. How can I tell if the fuse is no good?


Continuity is one way, they need to be able to conduct. If they are ceramic- use a test meter. If they are glass, does the wire reach from end to end or it melted? Does it resemble an old flash bulb that had been used? If so, or no continuity- replace fuse.

Also clean the contacts for the ionizer plate.

My living air xl-15 prove it light does not come on anymore and it seems that the unit does not prodoce ozone. I tested the light in the normal postion set at 12:00 with the plate out but to no avail....


If you are sure that the plate is clean, in perfect condition, and inserted correctly, it would appear that the transformer is defective. This means that power is not going through the metal contact fingers into the plates.

The light probably has burned out. It is not essential to the working of the machine, so it isn't anything you need to be concerned about.

Vollara (formerly Alpine/EcoQuest) is no longer producing or servicing the XL-15. However, a newer version, called the Classic, is available. You can call Customer Service 800-989-2299 and they will tell you your options. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

Alpine Air Living Air XL15 not producing Ozone or Deodorizing. New plates


Confirm that the appropriate sections of the circuitry are powered up and drawing power; check the interlock switch action; toss it back to the maker because the Hi-V transformer or ladder circuit or sense or hold caps were (if testing proves) never quite functional.

Also make sure the safety interlock switch is properly closed when re-assembled. It's the springloaded switch inside the little notch in the chassis - the small tab on the lint screen should fit in and push that switch closed. If you do it wrong, the unit won't work. You should hear an audible click when the tab closes the switch.
