Question about Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier
I AM GETTING A CRACKLING NOISE AND LIGHT FLASHES....IS THIS OK? WE BROKE TO PLATE AND LOST THE FUSE SO WE GOT CERAMIC PLATES AND ANEW FUSE AND IT IS THE FIRST TIME IT HAS BEEN USED INA FEW YEARS. SEMS TO WORK GREAT OTHER THAN THIS
Make sure you get the ceramic plate with the Q logo printed on it from Ecoquest. The generic ebay plates are NOT compatible even though the auctions list them as being compatible with the XL15. I learned this the hard way after purchasing the generic plates on ebay. The official ecoquest plates are not that much higher than the generic plates and that should solve your problem.

Sorry! What I didn't say was it is an Alpine Air XL15 with a fan and yes it does have parallel plates. It only does the lightning show thing when we turn it up all the way. I just backed it off to the point where it doesn't crackle and it seems to run OK. Now there is a buzzy, sort of hum but we have a major fire burning close by so maybe that is appropriate. It really helped us breathe easier last night; got it working just in time. I just don't recall it being this audible before. We also had a smaller house before so we had it on a lower setting. Thank you so much for answering!

If that's one of those fanless air purifiers with parallel plates, it is not all right. The plates need to come up to charge and not discharge much at all unless there is a big contaminant particle (e.g. flying insects.) You may or may not be able to make the plates parallel again; there should be no sharp bits. If it's an ionizer, even then the flashing should be rare; otherwise you will get more ozone than you need. That can be fun, but it is not making plain old clean air....
