Good Day To you,

Not sure what model you have but there is a fuse. inside these units. Check the fuse visually and with a ohm meter if you have one. Sometimes a blown fuse is not visually detectable. The fans get allot of dust collected on the motors and blades causing them to overheat which can damage the motor so at that point replacement of the motor is only solution. With a Voltmeter check to see if there is power to the fan if there is than the fan motor is shot. Not much to these units as far as the fan goes, power to the switch then to the fan. Thanks for using Fixya, I hope this has helped. I will be glad to help you further if you need more assistance but would have to know the model of the Ecoquest air purifier. Thanks Jeff

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.

Everything works but the fan will not turn. I recently performed a thorough cleaning and installed a new ozone filter, but the fan will not turn. I tried turning the fan manually and the unit would run...


The fan needs oiling (except for the Fresh Air, which has sealed bearings and no removable front grid). I need to know which model you have to help you reach the fan shaft. However, if you're handy, you can figure it out. Remove the front grid (if there is one on your model) and pull off the fan blades. Use a light household oil (sewing machine, hair clipper, 3-in-1) to drip down the shaft as you turn it manually. This should take care of the problem.
If not, and if you need more extensive repairs or rebuilding, call Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) customer service at 1-800-989-2299 and use 16618 as your dealer referral number.

I just washed the electrostatic grid and didnt have it thougholy dryed before inserting it back into the unit. Now I cant get the power light to turn on


As long as you have the cells in the correct direction, the air flow direction you should be O.K. If you have a way of turning on a constant fan that will help dry them. I would shut the power button off to the electric air cleaner and run a constant fan for 24 hours. After that, turn the power on and the constant fan off. Turn up the heat and see if it works.

Our Eco-Quest Breeze no longer works. I cleaned


I've seen several like that and found the wire connections corroded off. Easy to fix if that's the case. Make sure the unit is UNplugged before taking it apart.

My Venta Airwasher LW44 motor won't start


Test the motor to see if it works. Make sure the motor is removed from the rest of the unit. To find out how to remove the unit please hit the "Go Back button and select the "How to remove the motor button"...
  1. Plug the unit in to a working outlet.
  2. Push the #1 speed button on top of the motor.
  3. You now need to engage the saftey switch to start the motor.
  4. Protruding from the motor are two plastic about 3-4 inch guiding arms.
  5. Look inside the end of both of these two guiding arms. One of the arms are hollow and the other one has a white safety switch in the arm.
  6. Use a pencil or small item to push in on the safety switch.
  7. If the fan sarts to rotate the motor is still working.
  8. If the fan does not rotate then the life of the motor has probably ended and a new motor is needed. ( insert motor part link)

Fans not working


Yeah, I had this happen to one of mine, the motor bearing siezed. Even though mine had run out of warranty and I kludged a fix for it Oreck replaced it anyways after inspecting the unit.

Temporary kludges that worked: light machine oil on the motor bearing, flipping the motor over internally, turning the unit on its edge so that it rides on a 'fresh' part of the bearing, running the unit on 'high' while I was out of the house.

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.
