Replaced lamp but still says replace lamp

The 'replace lamp' will also stay on when the starter is bad or when he ozone generator fails.

Ok replaced lamp and starter and now it wont come on ?

Something is not reassembled correctly.
Check all connections, insertions, turnings, etc.
The lamp/starter need to be inserted so they "click" or "seat" firmly.
The plate needs to be inserted into the little "tracks" at the top and bottom of the plate. The contact fingers must press firmly on both sides of the plate. Bend them so they do.
The back screen needs to be inserted so the little pull-tab sticks out at the top and so the safety switch (if there is one) is depressed.
The back needs to be screwed back on firmly.
The plug needs to be inserted firmly, FIRMLY, FIRMLY into the back of the machine.
The little safety switch near the plug with the 0/- markings needs to be set to allow power to the machine (try it with power plugged in).
If all else fails, check the fuse (near the plug.)
If nothing works, call customer service (Vollara is the new name for EcoQuest) at 1-800-989-2299. They can walk you through these steps if you ask them to, then give you other options. Use #16618 as your dealer referral number if you are not in touch with a registered dealer.

I have a "fresh air" and I'm receiving a message saying synair- G4 replace lamp. Does this mean only to replace UV lamp

This means that the UV lamp has stopped working. Since you need a good starter to make the lamp work, it make sense to replace both at the same time.

Ionic breeze, red over ride light will not go out

The internal high-voltage grid wires are connected to a switch which is maintained in the closed position by the tension on the wire.

This red light comes on when the tension in the high-voltage grid wires relaxes or one of the wires breaks thus opening the switch.

There is no good remedy for this -- I have repaired a half dozen of these units by replacing the grid wires with titanium wire. This is a very time-consuming, complicated, nerve-wracking repair -- not recommended.

Like you I went through the hard-core cleaning pocess, but found it usually makes no difference or very little.

You could try E-Bay for a replacement or shop for a more rugged ozone-generating air purifier -- I'm looking for one myself.

I have an ecoquest fresh air purifier and the end of a red wire was corroded so I replaced the end with a new one, but the unit doesnt seem to be producing any ozone smell or sanitizing. It seems as if...

That corrosion is oxidation for the lug connecting the grid plate.Metal contact fingers make contact on the plates metal grids.The same corrosion exists on those metal contact fingers and the plate itself. Clean the fingers,ensure good connections as the other wire connector spade for the other contact finger is probably compromised. You might de-oxidize the plate by soaking in pure white ammonia.At any rate,I agree about the quality of the machines and you might be faced with a small parts order from eco-quest.Do include the plate, a bulb and the bulb starter. I run 5 of these in a commercial setting and they are fairly enjoyable to work on.

Lamp replacement???

Make sure the lamp is seated properly. Take it out, put it back in, turning it back and forth until it clicks. DO NOT TOUCH with your bare fingers.

May also need to replace the starter (the aluminum can at the rear of the unit).

"Replace plate" messge appears. I replaced it but the message remains!

Regarding "Replace Card" warning, 90% of the time it's the female metal connector on the red wire going to the spring metal connection screws... The connector can have a buildup of corrosion ( green) build inside of the crimped connection. In that case, the crimped connector will need to be replaced. The black wire may also suffer from corrosion, but to a lessor extent. The replacement crimps need to be stainless steel crimps. The copper crimps corrode easily. Another thing to look out for are loose connections. The final solution would be to replace the card, or see your friendly dealer.
