Hi.

The RCI Cell must probably be replaced, this must be done about every three years.

The part costs about $90, parts available here.

Replacement is explain at page 15 in manual available here.

There is also a debate on health concerns related to ionized air purifiers. Here Ecoquest answer, stating the product is safe.

On the other hand:

The Dangers of Ionic Air Purifiers

Ionic Air Cleaners

Please read also this article.

Before replacing any part I suggest to read the articles. Ozone related concerns have caused the recall of other similar devices.

Regards.

Ginko.

Does not produce ozone, I have replaced the fuse, it has been cleaned and the amber light is not on.


it's possible that the ozone generator inside has gone bad. The only way to really know is to remove it from the unit and then test it with a power supply w/correct voltage of coarse. You will smell the ozone immediately if it works upon testing. (clean fresh smell) If it does need replaced, it's an easy fix for anyone with electronics knowledge. You will need to match up the numbers to get the correct replacement. Many are available on Ebay. Always disconnect the power to the unit before taking it apart. Hope this helps, Dave

Can't find uv lamp in Fresh Air by ecoquest


The picture is a classic, with no UV light. Still works great. It got my kids off their inhalers after 15 years of 4 per month. Now 4 per year. A Fresh Air, depending on the age, has a light attached in the bottom of the visible base behind a cage and plate, and the new honeycomb units have the light inside the honeycomb.

Hi-I have the Living Air XL. It's out for repair because I cannot smell the distinct clean smell it normally puts out. The repair guy just called and said it's fixed and running, but the green light bulb...


He probably cleaned the unit and restored the plaques. Green light or no green light, it doesn't affect the production of ozone. If still in doubt, when you go to pick it up, have him operate fit or you before you leave the store. I've had one 7years and the green light hasn't worked for three years. I clean it regularly and it still produces ozone when needed. Regular, routine maintenance is the answer.

I have the living air xl15 its not working properly, I cant smell ozone no buzzing sound no uv light no green led coming on. I guess the only thing working is the fan. I don't have a manual and it blows my...


if you're sure you feel a breeze (fan is working), then this won't help. but make sure the rear filter is pushing in the metal tab at the bottom, or else it won't turn on. you can hold it in with a pencil to see if the machine works. also, are your plates in correctly, are any broken ? also, check/replace the internal fuse which you can find in the back.

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

Living Air XL 15, no ozone


My XL-15 had the same problem a few years ago. I had a broken wire on the fan, and the Ozone problem turned out to be a problem with the power supply. I had to send it in to have it repaired.

Fan is not turning on


The fan motor is probably locked up. You can either put a little oil to free it up (usually a temporary fix) or better yet replace the fan motor.
