Hey its a simple fix

contact any appliance parts service center
they are in most major cities in the phone book

get a SUPEO SM673 Utility Motor Kit

cost is from 25.00 List to $15.00 wholesale

now the trick

toss out the 2 fan blades that it comes with the motor kit
turn the fan upside down and remount it on the metal frame
(motor box up) it will work just fine
tighten the mounting nuts and place the fan assembly back onto the unit frame
push on the old fan (black) blade,
make sure it is deep in the fan house so the grill does not stop the rotation
replace the fan grill

take the two pink wires and clip off the wire connectors
take one and wire nut it to the white wire (common)
take the other and wire nut it to the black (high speed)
do not use the red wire (slow speed), just tape it off, so it does not ground

test the circuit, turn on the unit with the filter switch depressed

KEWL

reinseert the assemble flair frame into the box

enjoy the fresh air

15 minutes or less
3 hours to find the right replacement fan

charges from Eco == $250.

the right way- this way === priceless (under $40.00

your welcome

You could look for your item at a thrift store such as goodwill. You can often find a machine for parts.

How do you clean motor on Flair? Fan will not turn


The motor shouldn't need cleaning that would prevent it from turning on. When was the last time you cleaned the machine?

Jul 26, 2011 | Ecoquest Flair Air Purifier

I cleaned my Flair air purifier, The motor turns on but not the fan even after lubricating the fan shaft and giving the fan blades a little push. Any suggestions on how to get this going?


The Flair is no longer manufactured nor serviced by EcoQuest, and the company is now Vollara. If what you're hearing is the fan motor (there is no other motor associated with this machine), it might mean that either it's totally seized up, or that the oil just has not penetrated deeply enough.
1) Turn the machine over and remove the large screw in the bottom. The chassis will then slide out (I assume you've already done this in order to reach the fan shaft.)
2) Firmly pull on the fan blades near the center in order to pull them free of the shaft.
3) Turn the chassis on its back, so the fan shaft points up. Drip a small amount of lightweight oil (sewing machine, hair clipper, 3-in-1) on the shaft and turn it manually to work the oil down the shaft. Continue doing this if you feel the shaft loosening up.
4) Set the chassis upright, tilt it forward, and drip a small amount of oil on the rear opening to the fan shaft. Continue manually turning the shaft and tilting the machine to work the oil in.
5) Replace the fan blades and turn on the machine, depressing the safety switch manually, to see if the fan will begin to turn.
If it won't turn, it might mean that the fan motor is entirely seized up. You may be able to find a local small appliance repair person who could replace that motor.
Your other option is to call Vollara customer service at 800-989-2299 and ask them to explain your options. Use #16618 if you need a dealer referral number.

HELLO AND GOOD MORNING I HAVE A FLAIR AIR


Open the back and change the Ozone plate. then slide out the ION plate and clean it with denatured alcohol. If no light inside, you may have to replace the bulb and / or starter. Hope that helps.

Unit hums slightly but fan doesn't turn. I cleaned dust out of unit but still no results.


Shut the power off to the unit, spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

Only one plate inside, it's glass edges are broken or deteriorate


I haven't seen an older Flair that I know of. There will be as many slots for plates as are required. The filter is definitely washable. Use an enzyme cleaner and rinse with hot water. The fan motor should be oiled every month or two. It should cost less than $100 to get it running in top shape.

Fan trouble with Flair


remove the retaining screw from the bottom of the unit and slide the insides out the back. use WD40 with the plastic extension tube, spray into the motor armature/stator and turn with your hand until it is free spinning then reassemble and turn on.
this is an ongoing problem with my unit because the air and all contaminents are pulled directly to the fan.

My Fan on My Flair purifier is not turning when I turn on the unit. Nervous about poking around in there don't want to break it, any ideas how to fix this? Thanks


To fix it..........there is one screw on the unit on the outside.........really long!.......remove that and the entire unit just slides out of the housing..........

The replacement fan motor can be purchased on ebay....ranging from $21.95 to $32.95...depending on the model Flair that you have...the most common one is the $29.95 replacement...

Really quite simple to remove and replace!!! and well worth it!

Hope this helps.
