You can get an owner's manual for free from the manufacturer's website, it's at:

http://www.ecoquestintl.com/support/US50300_Living_Air_Owners_Manual.pdf

The manual has a description of the type and frequency of cleaning of various parts of your air purifier. Hope this helps!

My fresh-air by Ecoquest is about 4-5 years old and I've cleaned it before. Planned to clean it today and cannot find the cleaning manual. How can I get another one?


Call 800-989-2299 and ask the customer service rep to email you the manual or give you the site where you can download it. Use 16618 as your dealer referral number.

Unit powers up the two small lights won't come-on. Also air coming out stinks with A clean filter ?


What you refer to as a "filter" is actually the "plate," I assume. (4" square white object with mesh center panel?) The two small lights are simply power indicators, and may be burned out so could be inaccurate.
UNPLUG the machine.
1) If your model has a switch on the right that says "Manual" and "Auto," set it on "Manual."
2) Remove the back screen and remove the plate. Inspect it carefully for any kind of minute cracks, burned spots, discoloration, loose mucilage, broken screen strands, lint, dirt, etc. Even the smallest defect can cause the plate to short out, creating a burned, electric smell. If you detect something, or if it's spitting, sparking, or sizzling more loudly than normal, you need a new plate. Order through Vollara (new name of EcoQuest) at 800-989-2299.
3) Even though that plate appears clean, with no defects, it may be corrupted by whatever cleaning product was used. ONLY PLAIN AMMONIA and water, 1-to-1 ratio, should be used.
a) Soak the plate for 5 minutes or so.
b) Use a toothbrush or soft veggie brush and gently clean the plate You can also clean the metal contacts with a cotton-tipped swab and alcohol.
c) Blow-dry or air-dry the plate. DO NOT use any kind of cloth or paper wiper.
d) Avoid touching the screen part with fingers.
e) Reinsert plate, making sure it goes in on the tracks, both top and bottom, and isn't pushed too far. Both metal pressure contacts should press firmly on the screen on each side of the plate. (Tweak them to achieve firm contact, if necessary.) Sometimes, if the plate was cleaned with the wrong solution, it is damaged and cannot be cleaned enough by using ammonia. Order a new plate, using the above customer service number.

I just purchased a used XL15s. The unit when in manual mode emits an oder, but the air feels oxygenated. When you breath close to the machine the air seems to irritate or kinda burn my eyes. When in auto...


This is what the machine is designed to do! The machine emits a low amount of ozone, which is the purifier/sanitizer created by sunlight. Close to the machine, it's concentrated. When it spreads throughout the room, it kills odors and bacteria, and creates the fresh smell of clean air. The air truly is "oxygenated," because ozone is simply O3, instead of O2, and breaks down quickly.
If the numbered dial is set too high (try it at 300 to 500) it will smell "bleachy." Your "rule of thumb" is that when you've been away, and enter the home, you should experience the same fresh, clean smell that you get when you step outdoors on a bright spring or winter day.
When you're doing something that creates odors, like frying fish or cooking sauerkraut, turn the dial up to take care of that odor quickly, then turn it down for normal operation.
Leave it on the manual setting for continual purification. Often, the auto setting has been disabled, which might be the case in your older machine. (These machines can be 12-15 years old!) For an owners manual, go to www.vollara.com (new name of Ecoquest/Alpine). They may be able to help you.

Cannot get the 'SERVICE REQUIRED" light to turn off even after cleaning the plate with ammonia and water.


Just remove the filter from the back of the unit. You will find an Ozone sensor above the fuse. Carefully remove
it and put the unit on MANUAL mode and the service light will go out. It was put there to help comply government'
requirements and really service no purpose. It did not properly monitor anything so just operate you unit in the
MANUAL mode like the original Classics and it will be fine. Remember to throughly clean the unit once a year.
