Sounds like it needs a good cleaning. Does this one have the metal bars that pull out? I have a ionic pro and when it gets dirty it will emit small sparks where the dust connects from one bar to the other. It also has a pull up wand that cleans the wire that help build the charge. If this is the system that changes the charge on the ions to attract them to plates, you will see small sparks when it becomes dirty. Mine always let me know by the sparking sounds it makes.

Why does my car just turn over but wont start


A suggestion would be to check your fuel filter to make sure it is not stopped up. Your fuse to the fuel pump may also need to be checked. Chevys are notorius for bad fuel pumps.

There is a blue spark and bug zapping sound-looks like its sparking on the ceramic ozone plate. The place looks fine-no cracks.


It's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The bug zapping sound is from dust particles in the air, that's being pulled thru the unit. However, it should not being doing in continuously (unless your home is really dusty), it may simply need cleaning. Cleaning the unit, about once a month is recommended.

Hope this helped you.

Doesn't work and I've checked all the connections and I've cleaned it thoroughly


By checking all the connections, do you mean you've looked at each component to make sure the machine is assembled so as to activate all of the safety features?
1) The back screen needs to be inserted so that the tab depresses the interior safety switch in the slot. You'll be able to hear it click. Wiggle the screen if the little tab seems loose. Some need to be inserted down on top of the switch, others need to push the switch back. Try both ways.
2) Have you checked the fuse? If it is blown, replace it with the EXACT same size, available from an auto parts store.
3) Is the wall socket live? (I know, that sounds totally stupid! But you'd be surprised at how often the wall socket is dead! (Often turned off by a switch somewhere else.)
4) If there's a switch on the far right side (some have this feature, some don't), set it to "Manual" and leave it there. The "auto" feature sometimes is deactivated or stops working.
5) Make sure the switch on the front is "On."
6) Try turning the knobs to different settings. Sometimes the lower settings are too low to activate the machine.
Hope this helps. If none of these troubleshooting steps helps, you can call Vollara (new name for Alpine/EcoQuest) and they'll give you some great options. 800-989-2299. Use #16618 if they ask for a referral number.

Why does my Breeze randomly change fan speeds and purification levels?


The most common reason for surging or changing power levels is a loose connection somewhere.

1) Make sure the plug in the back is inserted firmly and the wall socket is live. The wall socket should not be powering a high-use appliance such as a furnace or refrigerator.
2) Check to make sure the back screen is inserted firmly, depressing the interior safety switch. (It will click when positioned correctly).
3) Make sure the plate is inserted firmly and correctly in the top and bottom "tracks" inside the machine. The metal contact fingers should be pressing firmly and evenly on both sides of the plate, in the metal screen area. You can bend them a little to increase the pressure. You may need to adjust the upright white ceramic posts to align the contact points. (Sometimes they twist.) Make sure the screws that hold the contact points are in firmly.

If none of these troubleshooting suggestions solves the problem, it may be malfunctioning because of computer issues. Unfortunately, Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) no longer services nor sells the Breeze model. However, customer service will inform you of your options. 800-989-2299.
You may also attempt to locate dealers who still have the Breeze in stock, and/or parts. You would need to do this by first asking Customer Service to locate a dealer in your area. They'll give the dealer your number, hopefully the dealer will call, and you can ask them to inquire among their associates.

3) Inspect the interior of the machine, looking for loose wires, corroded clips, any broken wires or connections. (You or a handy friend may be able to repair the loose wires or clips; it's a pretty basic fix.)
If none of these troubleshooting steps solve the problem, the problem may be in the computerized system. For that, you'll need to get in touch with Vollara (formerly EcoQuest) customer service. 800-989-2299.

My Flair smells like it is burning and the plates are making a loud sparking sound


What's burning is probably your high voltage transformer. When your glass plates get a crack in them, they will spark. You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

MIDI Ionic Breeze quit working


Unit seems to need reset...To do this simply, with unit still plugged in, set to off by selecting on button until there are no high, med, or low lights on. unplug unit from wall for about 15 seconds then plug back into wall socket and select your favorite setting high, med. or low. The order in which you perform this task must be as stated above and the unit must be clean and the door and cleaning rod must be in home position. Hope this helps, mines working fine now but took a couple tries to find right order to reset.

Sparks, rythmically every 3 seconds a cracking sound where the air purifyer is plugged into the wall


the sparking of the purifier by the plug is NOT good. it can be a fire hazard. there is a short within the switch. the best thing is to make sure that your under warranty and then call the manufacturer to get a replacement.
