Question about Ecoquest Living Air Classic Air Purifier

1 Answer

Hi! When I tried to pull the solderless connector off of the back of the XL-15 I pulled the tab out of the back of the fan. This is a real bummer for me. The connector on the fans left side looking from the back of the unit Is there a way to fix this unit from this standpoint? Any input you could provide to me in the instance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your valuable time.

An old product called Liquid Solder might just do the trick. You will need to have some way to clamp or tape the two pieces together, until it's fully dried.

I put in a new Living Air XL-15 fan but no go.


Make sure that the pin on the back cover penetrates deeply enough into the unit to activate the power. I too couldn\'t figure out why mine wouldn\'t start until I pressed hard on the bottom right corner of the back cover. When I did the unit started immediately because the pin wasn\'t fully inserted. To solve the problem I held the cover tight with a piece of duct tape and haven\'t had a problem since.

Fan is not coming on


The motor spins on brass bushings. you can try oiling the brass bushing. take off the front grill then gently pull off the fan blades. you need to oil the motor center shaft lay it on its back so the oil will run down into the bushing(not to much and use a light oil). there is one on the back of the motor also, this one is a little harder to get too. if this dont work you need a new motor. you can get on off of ebay cheaper. the motor should be replaced by some kind of tech savey person, as the are delicate and a very specifice disassemble procedure.

Why it do not turn on?


You need to check a few things: 1. Is the plug in the back fully seated into the plug receptacle?
2. Is the filter in the back installed correctly so the plastic tab is depressing the safety switch?
3. Do you have a ceramic plate installed in the grooves with the metal tabs touching on both sides?

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!

Alpine XL-15 fan has stopped working


Hello night light,

How you proceed is going to depend on how comfortable you are taking it apart.

Given it's age and purchase condition, warranty isn't an issue. You will either be able to dis-assemble the purifier and try taking the motor apart and reassembling, or you can find a replacement motor (I've seen some on the web, they start at ~$50).

Another possibility is that the fan pot (the rotary switch that the knob turns to adjust the fan speed) may be out. If you have a multi-meter, see if you can get a signal through (when it's all the way open). If not, try replacing that first. Parts are available onthe web, I can't advertise per FixYa's terms of use.

Hope this helps.

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.

Also make sure the safety interlock switch is properly closed when re-assembled. It's the springloaded switch inside the little notch in the chassis - the small tab on the lint screen should fit in and push that switch closed. If you do it wrong, the unit won't work. You should hear an audible click when the tab closes the switch.

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.
