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.

Blinking 'Check Collector Cell' light


which model XL series do you have? There is obviously something shorted or arcing on the plates of the cell. look at the plates and see if they are laying flat and the wires are all still attached across the front of the cell. A loose, sagging, broken or bad contact on the end plates will cause the bad cell lights. clean off the area where the cell makes contact inside the unit. The metal strips that run across the ends of the cell make contact with the plates inside the cell and get their power from them, dirty contacts in any part of these contacts will cause the problem. Even a bad contact from the end cap to the plates inside the cell will cause this. Try wiggling the cell around, kind of push on it on edge to get the plates to shift slightly and clean the points where the plates touch the outer strips on the sides. Check for arcing with the lights turned off,

My unit has been in storage and I have just now cleaned it and put it back together, but it won't come one...how do I know if the fuse is needing replacement.


You power down, take the fuse out, and put the leads of a DVM across it (or have your local prefilter supply place use their DVM.) If the thing blew and therefore reads OL (open line, as opposed to a closed circuit) then you need a new good one. You can't always see metal deposits and a break in the fuse wire.

How do I put in the light bulb in a Fresh Aire model?


According to Alpine Air, if the light bulb is one that indicates how it's function operation, there is no need to replace it, if the unit is working properly. The specific model you have is over ten years old and is not repairable. At least, not by Alpine Air.

My living air xl-15 prove it light does not come on anymore and it seems that the unit does not prodoce ozone. I tested the light in the normal postion set at 12:00 with the plate out but to no avail....


If you are sure that the plate is clean, in perfect condition, and inserted correctly, it would appear that the transformer is defective. This means that power is not going through the metal contact fingers into the plates.

The light probably has burned out. It is not essential to the working of the machine, so it isn't anything you need to be concerned about.

Vollara (formerly Alpine/EcoQuest) is no longer producing or servicing the XL-15. However, a newer version, called the Classic, is available. You can call Customer Service 800-989-2299 and they will tell you your options. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

What does a green blinking light mean on my eco box? Also when cleaning the unit, which way does the metal plate face? Does the metal plate face towards the outside or the center of the unit. I'm...


When the green LED starts to blink, means that there is a bulb failure in the RCI module. It typically glows greenish blue when it working. Check the connector to see if it is seated properly, and also check the power connector for problems. I had a problem with the power connect not making a good contact and it caused the power to be intermittent. I was able to clean the connector with a can of electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack to fix this problem. If you can't get the bulb to light, you will need a new RCI module.

As for the purification plate, the one that shaped like a tongue depressor, it does not matter which way it go back in to the unit. You should be able to get parts from your dealer or you can call the company at 800 989 2299. Hope this helps.

Ionic Breeze - Cleaning Overdue light stays on even after unit has been cleaned


Hi.

The filter is damaged and may need replacement.

If the model is post 2007, to get parts or repair contact Ionic Breeze support. Here contact page.

If the model was manufactured before 2007, read below, in that case I suggest not proceeding with the repair.

I want to call attention on the fact that several of old Ionic Breeze models are not being manufactured anymore because of health concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts for old models that raised concerns are not distributed anymore.
I suggest contacting manufacturer, if parts are not available, then the purifier was among the ones related to health concer. In that case I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

Ionic Breeze Health Concerns


Regards.

Ginko.

I have a breeze AT, fan is the only one that's working, I tired to clean and visually check if there's anything out of the ordinary but nothing that I could tell, what seems to be the problem?


make sure the bulb and starter are working....do you see blue light emmissions from the inside of unit? That and the grid plate are the major players in this machine.clean plate,soak in ammonia and clean contact fingers that can get corroded including the female spade connectors for the wiring.

No lights no fan on Alpine Air XL-15


Use a DVM continuity function to see if the fuse is blown, and check all the DO FIRST literature packed with the thing. You probably get to take a note out of the ionizer chamber.
