Question about Ecoquest Fresh Air Living Air Purifier

1 Answer

It had been turned off for quite a while and now simply does not run. The fuse is fine. When I took the back cover off, I heard a rattle and when I flipped the unit onto its back a very short machine screw with a lock washer on it came out. I couldn't see where it came from. I'd like to find a local repair shop but they all appear to be in California. I'm in NJ.

    I have already taken the front and back panels off to vacum the unit. The fan runs freely.

Hi,
My guess would be that it has nothing to do with the screw...
but it has to do with the fan motor being siezed up... try to spin the fan and if it starts or tries to run, then it is probably because it is too stiff and needs a lub job...get some WD-40 worked into the shaft end and then light motor oil...usually the fan must run before anything else will get power...

    Hi,

    Can you tell if the fan motor is getting power to it??

    If you have power then the motor went bad... if not then trace back and see if a relay went bad...the relay probably is integrated into a circuit board...

I have an Oreck XL that is very noisey, even on the silent run position. How can I gegt it fixed?


The problem may be build-up on the blower wheel. When the Truman cell cover is removed, two screws are visible which secure the cover for the blower. remove them and the cover hinges. Keep opening and it will unhook. Use a stiff brush to remove soil from the blower wheel. The unit can be turned upside down over a trash can or better still, outdoors to remove the excess.

There is a fuse in where the AC cord plugs into the purifier. Remove the back cover, and you should be able to remove the fuse by prying the fuse cover off with at straight screwdriver. It takes a 1.6 amp fuse for 120Volts

MIDI Ionic Breeze quit working


Unit seems to need reset...To do this simply, with unit still plugged in, set to off by selecting on button until there are no high, med, or low lights on. unplug unit from wall for about 15 seconds then plug back into wall socket and select your favorite setting high, med. or low. The order in which you perform this task must be as stated above and the unit must be clean and the door and cleaning rod must be in home position. Hope this helps, mines working fine now but took a couple tries to find right order to reset.

Ionic breeze quadra not functioning


I had the same problem and could not find an answer anywhere. So here's what I figured out. The small wires running from top to bottom just inside the cover are your problem. Not the metal grid with plates that you can remove. The buzzing sound you heard is the resistance one or more of the wires is causing. The resisitance tells the pc board that your grid must be wet and therefore the unit goes into drying mode. I replaced my small wires and my unit is working better than ever. The wire is .005 diameter( important so that you keep the same resistance flowing to the pc board) and can be purchased at any good suppy house. I have since repaired another unit with an even simplier fix. I took the unit into a dark room and then turned it on. Watching the grid I could see the wire arching that was causing the resistance. Unplugged the unit, turned it over and with a flat head screw driver pushed the wire off its base connedtion. Turned the unit right side up and removed the wire from its top support. The unit works fine without the troubled wire. Hope this helps.

After cleaning and replacing filters, won't turn on


I have had the same problem. The way I fix mine (it only runs for a couple days staight) is to switch the two filters (or maybe you just need to remove completely?) making sure they are in tight. Replace the cover and it should work!

Won't turn on


Just wanted to make sure you inserted the carbon filter on the back before turning it on. It will not turn on without the filter in place. Also, you have to make sure the on/off switch on the back is turned on. Hope that might help.

My Ionic breez model no: S1861 is not working now. It was working fine last week until 2 days ago, there was no light when I turn it on. Before that, I heard sound buzzing and I've cleaned the grid well....


There isn't one. The reason why Sharper Image went out of business is because the Ionic Breeze was proven to be ineffective product and harmful to use in some cases based on Consumer Reports data as well as data from the EPA. They sued Consumer Reports, lost the case, and had to pay all the legal bills.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to making decision on all ionizers by the end of the year. It's quite possible that no one will be selling them anymore.

There is thread I left in the Ionic Breeze section about the EPA data on ionizers and the harmful effects of using them as well as a link about what happen to Sharper Image.

This product should have been regulated a long time ago. Orek and few others are going to be pulling the plug on them real soon.

Wont run after I cleaned it


On the model 30200 there is a safety interlock switch actuated by a plastic tab (about 4" down from the top of the front filter cover) on the right side. Assuming that all you did was take off the front cover and clean or replace the filter(s) and the unit was working previously, this should be your answer. If in taking off the cover the switch actuation tab was broken off, you could (carefully) wedge a tab into the slot where the switch resides. This defeats the safety aspect of certifying that the unit isn't running when you remove the cover. The safe work-around is to unplug the unit before you open it for service.
