If little or no compression problem may be stuck valve/s. Easy fix/ harder fix. Remove sparkplug and spray wd40 into cylinder and replace plug (hand tight because you may need to repeat), try to start. The oil will tend to raise the compression a bit if lucky enough to start, too much will wet plug, just clean and try again. If it starts you can keep spraying wd40 into carb till it runs better. Harder fix, remove plug wire, remove valve cover and pull starter rope slowly to see if valves are moving and rocker arms are not too loose. Loose rocker arms indicate stuck valves. If stuck, lightly tap top of valve/spring with wood handle of hammer or large screwdiver to free valve. Generally only a couple of taps are needed. If these procedures do not help a trip to small engine shop is indicated. Good luck

Make sure that the receptacle that it's plugged in to is still working. The circuit breaker for that outlet may have been tripped in your home's circuit breaker panel. Or there may be a loose wire or bad connection inside the outlet box. May not be air purifiers fault at all.

It is worth getting an estimate. From the symptom you explained, it looks like the horizontal output transistor became defective.
