Fan is not coming on


The motor spins on brass bushings. you can try oiling the brass bushing. take off the front grill then gently pull off the fan blades. you need to oil the motor center shaft lay it on its back so the oil will run down into the bushing(not to much and use a light oil). there is one on the back of the motor also, this one is a little harder to get too. if this dont work you need a new motor. you can get on off of ebay cheaper. the motor should be replaced by some kind of tech savey person, as the are delicate and a very specifice disassemble procedure.

I forgot how to start my air purifer- there is a flip switch on the bottom of the back with an " I" or an o" -does this make a difference? I don't seem to be getting any power. Also...


As far as oiling the fan motor shaft use a light weight lubricating oil like sewing machine oil. Just a drop or two will do. Olive oil is great for cooking, but to heavy a viscosity to be used for a lubricant. The switch should be in the "O" position.

My Fan is somehow loose and gets jammed. I don't see how the fan metal bracket fastens to anything and therefore is sort of floating loose and the blade keeps rubbing up against the plastic...


Fan should not be rubbing up against anything. I don't think the fan is secured properly to the motor shaft. Tighten down the metal clip that holds the fan onto the shaft. Make sure it's not back too far.

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.

Do I need a new fan blade if I replace the fan or will the old one go back on fairly easy? Ecoquest fresh air


If you need to replace the fan motor, the fan blade can be removed by grasphing the center hub of the fan and pull the fan straight out of the purifier. I remove it every time I clean my machine, since it easy to clean it once it is removed.

Alpine XL - 15 Fan Stopped Working


Hello again, night light,

I don't think you hurt it by nudging the blades - I have one where it does the same thing unless I have it set on "max".

The challenge is that I don't know which is more likely the problem - I haven't worked much with the electrical aspects of them recently - - I might have to try working with one, although it may vary between models - the one's on the circuit board would be harder to swap-out. What was the vintage of yours again?

Good for you on having a multimeter, and being willing to learn to use it!

All I was talking about earlier was using the CONT (continuity) function to check for a circuit (some models have a little buzz or beep that sounds when you have a connection. If you have the fan pot. wide open, you should be able to get a good signal between the terminals of the pot.

Another option - crude, but effective - would be to "jumper" (short-circuit) the fan terminals (at the pot.) together to see if it runs with the pot. bypassed out of the circuit. This shouldn't harm the motor, and if it still doesn't work, that points to the motor being bad. As always, use common sense and be safety-concious, don't bypass the safety cut-out switch or the like.

I may have to check with one of my brothers (biomedical electronics tech.) for a little additional guidance - - he could probably give me better insight without spending a lot of time on trial-and-error. If that happens, I'll follow-up with another Solution entry in the next few days.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have additional questions/comments for this item, please let me know.

If/when this solves the issue to your satisfaction, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

How to remove the fan blade ?


080204 FixUp EQ air blog remarks

To remove fan blade you need to obtain a thin strong probe, such as a Scratch Awl for wood, that will fit without binding, into the cruciform spaces around the plastic collar. Gently insert into space of plastic collar and lever against the spring metal retaining clamp; getting started may require a bit of force, so be careful to adjust and gauge your efforts. The process is to move clamp in small increments, one side then the other, up the collar until clamp is free to remove.

The collar will still be tight, so if you can form your hands into a gear puller form with your finger tips between the fan blades under to the solid portion of the fan ring, pushing thumbs against the Spindle and lifting in as quick a jerk as you can manage to get it moving. Once moving it should be removed easily enough.

The electric motors have two bearing surfaces, one front one back. Both need to be addressed.

I like Breakfree or similar that acts like minor solvent / major lubricator with good thermal properties. The solvent aspect helps clean out unwanted particles and/or old dried lube. The new lubrication is heavy enough to hold up for at least a year; so yearly checking should be scheduled.

On other brands with heavier motors, I've tried greases when I've stripped down the motors even further. So far I've discovered a heavier lube can be hard on start up and need more time at slower speeds until unit warms up.

Something like WD40 is good for penetration and flushing, but IMO too light for sustained duty. There is a lot of spinning and heat over a year's time.

I just torn down a couple of F1's. They've been doing well for a couple of years. But with all air filters/ purifiers, they REQUIRE periodic maintenance. [Had my biggest laugh reading complaints about Oreck air filters; people NEVER cleaned them and complained when they failed.]
Yes, all these small electrical motors will eventually need lubrication, I recommend before 2 years, as one of mine had a frozen (lack of lube) motor in that time.

If you get into the back to try to get at the rear bearing, you may find that you might be considering a more thorough cleaning (I noticed a bit of corrosion). If you do and if that means taking more stuff apart to clean, be well advised of the time involved and the number of wires needing displacement, especially the electronic wire connectors at the front to the circuit board.
So, get a digital camera and take clear pictures (and check them!) Before and During take apart as well as a couple of paper notes about wire runs and placement. I have even used paint pens to letter/number info to the unit.

Clicking noise


I had the same problem.

We could put one cell in and it worked with out clicking. Putting the second one in solo however, it was clicking.

I looked closely at the second cell and discovered that two of the vanes on the side with the wires were bent at about 20 degrees off. Adjusting this and reinserting reduced the clicking but not completely. I pulled the cell and focused on the same two vanes and discover one was also bent in, gently pulled it back and no more clicking!

My wife had cleaned the filters and my 6 yr old and 4 year old had to help. I wonder how they got bent?!

We have had the cleaner for about 6 yrs and no problems until this last cleaning.

Be very careful in adjusting the cells. Aluminum does not like being bent and weakens each time it is moved, like pulling a tab off a beer can (of course the cells are made from much thicker and higher grade aluminum)!
