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.

I have a Flair air puifier but no ozone smell. I replaced the high voltage transformer( it was a 3500 watt instead of a 5000 watt transformer) The red light now flickers but no ozone smell . It has ne


Your ozone generator may have gone bad. It's the small black rectangular looking apparatus located near the bottom of the unit. It usually has a zip tie holding it to the circuit board. You will have to take the Flair out of it's case to see it. Make sure it's unplugged and remove the bolt from the bottom of the unit. You can then slide the framework out of the casing. It's also possible that it's time to replace your Ceramic Ozone Plates. They have a life expectancy of 2 to 4 years. The Flair has two of them that slide into slots in the rear of the unit. You can see them when you remove the washable filter. All items can be purchased on Ebay. DM

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 xl15 runs but does not produce ozone. The little Rulien fan on the little ozone maker does not run. the regular fan works though.


You realize this is a really old machine!! The little fan is for ozone level detection, not production.
To see if the machine still will produce ozone
1) Set the switch to manual rather than auto and always run it on manual.
2) Remove the back of the machine and remove the 4" white plates. Check them for cracks, breaks in the mesh, loose mucilage, discoloration, burned spots, excessive grease or nicotine, or particulates such as dust, dog hair, or lint. Clean the plates using a solution of 1 part plain AMMONIA to 1 part warm water. Soak 5 minutes, brush with a soft brush, rinse well, and blow dry. DO NOT use any kind of cloth to dry the plate. Avoid putting fingers on the mesh.
3) If the plates are damaged in any way, call Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) and order replacements. 1-800-989-2299. Use #16618 as the dealer referral number if you are no longer in touch with the registered distributor who sold you the machine.
4) Insert the plates, making sure the metal contact fingers press on them firmly.
5) If none of the above works, most likely the power to those contact fingers is no longer strong enough to arc through the plates.
6) Call customer service, and they'll explain your options.

No ozone smell can it be repaired or do i need to buy another unit


You can try a couple of simple fix-its before deciding what to do.
The plates (4" white ceramic squares with screen glued to center of each side) must be clean and inserted correctly.
1) Soak the plates in equal parts plain ammonia/water for 5 minutes. Scrub gently with a toothbrush or small veggie brush. Rinse well. Blow dry or air dry. DO NOT use a towel or paper to dry it off. Avoid touching the screen with your fingers. Clean the metal fingers with a cotton swab and alcohol.
2) Insert the plates firmly, making sure they go in on the tracks, and that the contact fingers rest firmly on the screen part.

If you still detect no ozone, it's probably because the transformer is no longer working. Vollara (formerly EcoQuest/Alpine) no longer repairs or sells the Flair. You may be able to find someone (former dealer perhaps) who has parts and repair skills, or else you'll need to find another machine.

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!

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.

Air Purification Unit Model ALP-615


Moist air reduces the efficiency of ozone production for this unit. I am not sure what the water thing is about.

Did you try cleaning the glass plate or ceramic plate ozone producing unit with soap free ammonia? Also did you try using a pencil eraser on the contact points on the glass plate? I think the ammonia cleaning and contact points on the glass plate should be your first option. Check your maintenance on the units manual.

Try the manufacturers website for their trouble shooting guide...walks you through most problems and how to fix them.

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.

The ozone plates need to be cleaned monthly to work effectively. You can get an owner's manual for free from the manufacturer's website, it's at:

http://www.ecoquestintl.com/support/US50300_Living_Air_Owners_Manual.pdf

The manual has a description of the type and frequency of cleaning of various parts of your air purifier. Hope this helps!
