Question about Ecoquest Breeze AT Living Air Purifier

1 Answer

The machine seems to be working, but I am not getting the same clean smell I use to. I have a bedroom closed up with an old mattress that smells of cigerette smoke, usually this sort of thing is no problem and quickly resolved, but after two days no difference. I recently cleaned the machine, but still no change.

Check that the purification plate contacts and associated wiring are clean and make good contact with the plates. Also check the plates themselves for dirt build up on the metal grid. If the plates are a few years old, they should be replaced. Your dealer should be able to help you get new plates. Leave a comment if you need additional help.

Ecoquest fresh air not omitting ozone


Did you clean the plate contacts with alcohol? How old is the plate? Is the glue that holds the grid in place turning brown? If it is, it may need to be replaced. Call (336) 499-2505 and ask for free email supplemental cleaning instructions before you do anything else. The instructions may help you solve the problem.

880 alpine air (2) on upper level one in kitchen and one in laundry room. Question: I clean the purifiers about once per month and the problem is that there is no clean air smell any longer. They are...


The transformer may be burned out. This supplies the power to the contact points which send current through the plates. You can try ordering new plates, just to see if yours are just plain worn out! You're doing the right thing, by using ammonia/water, but they aren't made to last forever! Call Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) at 800-989-2299. Use #16618 if you're no longer in touch with the registered distributor who sold you the machines. If you still detect no clean air amell, the machines need a part which the company no longer handles. And they no longer manufacture the 880 or Breeze, which was its upgrade. Customer service will explain your options.

I just purchased a used XL15s. The unit when in manual mode emits an oder, but the air feels oxygenated. When you breath close to the machine the air seems to irritate or kinda burn my eyes. When in auto...


This is what the machine is designed to do! The machine emits a low amount of ozone, which is the purifier/sanitizer created by sunlight. Close to the machine, it's concentrated. When it spreads throughout the room, it kills odors and bacteria, and creates the fresh smell of clean air. The air truly is "oxygenated," because ozone is simply O3, instead of O2, and breaks down quickly.
If the numbered dial is set too high (try it at 300 to 500) it will smell "bleachy." Your "rule of thumb" is that when you've been away, and enter the home, you should experience the same fresh, clean smell that you get when you step outdoors on a bright spring or winter day.
When you're doing something that creates odors, like frying fish or cooking sauerkraut, turn the dial up to take care of that odor quickly, then turn it down for normal operation.
Leave it on the manual setting for continual purification. Often, the auto setting has been disabled, which might be the case in your older machine. (These machines can be 12-15 years old!) For an owners manual, go to www.vollara.com (new name of Ecoquest/Alpine). They may be able to help you.

I have a Living Air Purifier - Model Flair with Ecotech


You can download the manual online at http://www.ecoquestonline.net/ownersmanuals_web/flair_om.pdf

Basically let your nose be your guide. When you are right in front of the machine you can smell the fresh air. As soon as you walk in the house you should smell that fresh air smell for about 30 seconds and then it should go to the back of your senses. If not the setting on the machine is too high. Dial it back a notch and wait 24 hours before making another adjustment, until you have the right setting.

Hope this helps!

No ozone smell


This generally indicates that the plate is cracked or not making proper contact. Pull the plate and look very closely as even a tiny microscopic crack anywhere on the plate will produce these results.

XL-15 Classic Living Air emmitting Foul Odor!!


Ionizers do cause a bad odor to happen. I work in the copier business and do work around machines that can cause an ozone to happen when there are ran. Copiers like ionizers can cause an ozone to happen because the air particles are being electrically charged. The smell isn't good to be breathing in as well.

Here is an EPA report about ionizers

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be making a decision about the health effects on ionizers by the end of the year. Their decision can effect selling ionizers all together.

This industry should have been regulated years ago and after what happened to Sharper Image this year due to their arrogance it isn't doing the industry any favors. They went out of business because of Consumer Reports findings and tried to sue them for it.

If you really want the air in your house cleaned, the best way to do it is using a hepa filter.

Air Purifier smells like chlorine


Mine does too. Did a little research - I guess all air filters let out a little bit of ozone. Some describe the smell of ozone to be something like bleach yet others say it smells like geraniums or even "sparks" (like the sparks that come off of the bumper car ride at the fair...hmm...interesting). Not sure which to believe, but I know mine smells.
I found a manual talking about reducing this smell. Said the first couple of weeks are the worst of it, but if it still bothers you, you could install an "activiated carbon filter" down stream from the air filter, or go through complicated instructions (for whatever model they were talking about) to go into the of the machine and switch stuff around.
Both solutionssound complicated to me.
I'm just happy knowing the smell is normal and that it is actually working. Think I'll live with the smell.

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!
