I just purchased a used Alpine Air XL-15 from ebay.no ozone spell

I just purchased a used Alpine Air XL-15 from ebay that was listed ''AS IS'' because it didn't have the ''3'' ozone plates required for it to run. I have properly placed the new plates except the center plate....all plates touch the prongs except center plate has no metal prongs.The Unit runs but no ozone spell like my other one........ I double checked the saftey switch works fine and fan works fine But,no ozone smell. Is there something else that could cause it not to work??? Thank s

    I don't know what else to say about the problem since that is what is wrong & I don't know what else to do. Screens are fine.

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

How long have you owned machine? Plates need to be replaced periodically to be effective and to generate ozone. Depends on usage but at least every one-two years. They run about $15 a piece. I can get you some.

Easy. You need new plates in the machine. They cost about $15 a piece. Google 'ozone plates for XL-15' & sources will come up on where to buy them. Remember to clean the plates every 30-45 days w/ 50-50 solution of ammonia & water & a tooth brush on these plates. Dry thoroughly w/ hair dryer before putting back in machine.

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 have an extra user manual for the alpine. You have to clean the plates at least once a month to get maximum performance. Get back to me at nick61@telus.net for the manual. Also the ion emitter sometimes needs to be replaced. I use one of mine in my FIR sauna. It seems to be OK at those high temps. 50*-60* C..so far.

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

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.

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.
