Question about Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier

Oreck XL air purifier (Tower Model)

Oreck sent me 4 new wires. I had 2 broken. I replaced them which was a very easy task. After a day of running the red light came on and will not go out. I cleaned the collector cell, but light stays on. This purifier is about a year old, but since we don't live near a repair center I have to rely on myself to keep it going. The collector cell looks good visually.
I am very impressed with their vacuum cleaners, but feel I got hosed on this air purifer.

    The unit is dry, and like I said, it did run for a day before the red light came on. There is no "red button" on the tower model. It has a red LED that is labeled "check collector cell".
    Any other ideas ?
    thanks

    Since I'm an electrician by trade those are two of the things I checked first. No sign of either.
    Are there any voltage readings I should be getting or not getting on the board?
    thank you

    There is no red button to push.

Is this purifier wet at all, or been in any heavy areas of moisture. This purifier is very undependable with moisture. It may just have to dry out. Let me know if this solves your problem or we can explore further options.

Please keep me updated, thanks

    You can also try to hold the red button in and it will go off after a minute or less. Then it should reset to green.

Need a wiring diagram for Oreck XL air purifier Air8SD


I would look at the board using a high powered magnifying glass to see if there was any signs of broken stubs of wires sticking out of any solder joints. Also look for solder joints that have no other possible routes, (dead ends) that do not have any other connections running from them. Like a resistor that has a copper path on one end and nothing running from the other end. Or it could be a ground wire if no other spot is found.

A red light flashing with clean filter


bad connection on plates or wires that run along the front of the plates in the cell. If you hear snapping or arcing then its the plates shorting out, look for bent plates and broken wires or loose sagging wires.

What happens having one broken wire?


Not trying to be funny, but it depends on the wire, if your air purifier is still running or not, whether you have lost hi/low settings etc. Or is your plug wire and you lost the internal ground wire. Attached link you are able to download user manual. Need to be more detailed, color of wire, location of break. Hope this helps, or provide make model, and other details. PEACE

Where can I get replacement wires for an oreck truman cell? Seems silly to spend 200 dollars when the only thing wrong is four 29 cent wires does it not?


Here is a link to where you may can find what you need. You will need to have the correct model number (not just XL Tower Air Purifier) , to find your mode.

How can you tell if the oreck tower works.mine used to collect surface dirt on the small horizontal pains at the bottom of cell now it doesnt


Take it into an Oreck dealer, first they'll try to sell you a new one, don't buy it. Then they will happily help you out with whatever parts you may need.

Red light wont change back to green after cleaning


I did the same thing and now I need to replace the cell collector. You need to replace it to if the wire is broken. Please let me know the outcome of your problem.

Where to find the part is hard to get.
