Question about Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier

1 Answer

My xl 15 just quit and appears to have no power to it

My xl 15 one week ago seem to falter when turning it on. I shut it off and then on again and it worked fine for two hours. Then I shut it off for a few days. The next time I tried to turn machine on it wouldn't come on. The red light switch doesn't light up and the machine appears to have no power to it. Have tried several electrical plug ins that work for kitchen appliances, but machine is dead. Motor fan blades turn easily by hand. Is there a starter or fuse needed. Fuse looks clear and not blackened. Stuck my hand in through the back and touched something that gave me a small shock.

    Thanks to your expert Jon, his advice solved my problem. The white clip on the back lint filter looks like it should attach to the machine with the screen sitting on top but in actuality this clip needs to be reversed and attached to lint screen with the long side up and then set over hole on back of machine. Thank you

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.

My XL-15 won't power up. Everything seems to be in place but when I flip the power switch to the on position, nothing happens. I have looked at the fuse and it looks ok. Could there be another...


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.

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.

I cannot adjust the fan speed. There is 1 spot on


If there is only one spot on the fan control dial that turns on the fan, it seems that the fan control pot has failed and needs to be replaced. You can call the company and order one and it should fix your problem 800 989 2299.

A broken switch on a small portable ozone machine--X-15 or XL


Hi again, epyn,

As I think about this more, I'd say that the switch you have would probably _not_ work. What you have is somewhat like a conventional 3-way switch. With the Alpine/Ecoquest switch, I suspect one terminal is for power to the internal light/LED, one is the load to the switch, and the third would be the ground for both.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know - I'd like to resolve this for you. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Alpine XL-15 fan has stopped working


Hello night light,

How you proceed is going to depend on how comfortable you are taking it apart.

Given it's age and purchase condition, warranty isn't an issue. You will either be able to dis-assemble the purifier and try taking the motor apart and reassembling, or you can find a replacement motor (I've seen some on the web, they start at ~$50).

Another possibility is that the fan pot (the rotary switch that the knob turns to adjust the fan speed) may be out. If you have a multi-meter, see if you can get a signal through (when it's all the way open). If not, try replacing that first. Parts are available onthe web, I can't advertise per FixYa's terms of use.

Hope this helps.

No lights no fan on Alpine Air XL-15


Use a DVM continuity function to see if the fuse is blown, and check all the DO FIRST literature packed with the thing. You probably get to take a note out of the ionizer chamber.

Living Air XL 15, no ozone


My XL-15 had the same problem a few years ago. I had a broken wire on the fan, and the Ozone problem turned out to be a problem with the power supply. I had to send it in to have it repaired.

Collector cell light always comes on


Hi there,

We purchased one of these in April 2009. Same issue appeared with us. Cleaned the cell and the "clean collector cell" still stayed illuminated. Checked the manual and the trouble shooting section stated to hold down the "air revitalizer button" till the "clean collector cell" light blinks three times. After this operation the light went out and all was fine!!!! Hopes this clears your issue!
