Won't turn on

I cleaned my machine and let it sit for several days to make sure that everything was really dry. Now it will not turn on. I looked at the fuse and it does not appear to have blown.

    no lights and will not turn on also one of the glass corner are broken off could that be a problem

  • FranFrost Nov 02, 2008

    I recently moved and am facing the same problem. The Fuse is not blown, the filter is in place, and the ceramic disk is new. I will try the rubber button pulling and see if that does it. Very Strange though. It has now life.

I had the same problem after cleaning. I changed fuses and pulled the rubber buttons. Nothing .. THEN I unscrewed the bottom screws to allow me to get deeper inside. Discovered there are THREE connections that come from the front to the back of the machine and ANY of them may come unattached during cleaning. You may have to pull the entire master unit out to inspect, and that will disconnect these wire. Look at it. Then slowly put it back together. If you have small hands, it will help you reach inside to reconnect two. The main one to watch is the green-covered wire from the area of the power buttons, Be sure it is connected at the left rear, right at the point where the filter pushes down on one of the metal prongs. Mine works fine now.

I had the same problem. I took it to my sales representative because I knew he had seen quite a few of these machines. Sure enough, in a few minutes he had it fixed. What he did was to adjust the rubber control buttons on the right side of the machine. He took his fingers and pulled slightly on each of the buttons. He said that sometimes one will become stuck depressed and that will prevent the machine from turning on. You might give this a try.

Just wanted to make sure you inserted the carbon filter on the back before turning it on. It will not turn on without the filter in place. Also, you have to make sure the on/off switch on the back is turned on. Hope that might help.

I have 2 Ecoquest Fresh Air purifiers located in oposite ends of my basement. One in my work shop area (approx 28x32) and the other in my finished basement area (approx 28x50). The reason I chose this...


Hi Ed,

You should also clean the contacts points that touch the plates with the amonia and water solution. Use a brush and to remove any deposits on those contacts. Also the purification plates will not work if they are still damp when they are put into the machine. They must be completely dry in order to work. Use a hair dryer to dry off any water on the metal grid or allow them to dry for 24 hours. Hopefully that should get your plates going again.

In regards to when you should replace the plates. As long has the plate material is not cracked and you can clean the metal grids to a shine they should be good. But they should be able to last several years with good maintenance.

The RCI cells should be replaced every 3 years or when the machine displays "Replace RCI" message.

Hope this helps you.

My sister gave me her Brookstone Pure ion Air purifier....The "clean filter" light flashes red....I wiped the filter with a damp cloth...so think it is clean...?....Is this how to clean it? ....and how do...


Wiping it off won't clean the filter. I submerse mine in hot soapy water ( oxiclean w/any favorite multipurpose liquid cleaner.Let it air dry completely before placing it back in unit.I have tried the dishwasher method and it didn't clean it.I also thoroughly wash all crevices of the unit.If red light doesn't go off, reclean the filter(s). It has all ways worked for me.

I had the same problem with mine, it would start then go into drying mode. I got it to work properly by smacking it around for about a week then it went back to it's lil tricks with drying mode again. After trying just about everything short of using it for target pratice, I made sure it was clean and dry then I turned it to the Medium setting, pressed the power button waited just a second for the fan to go into the meduim fan level, then I pressed the power button again holding it in before it went into the drying cycle, while I held the button, (don't release) I wadded up some tape to keep the button depressed then I put some tape over that to keep it that way. It works perfect! Note, mine never had any crackling issues to begin with, just the drying cycle thing so use this suggestion at your own risk. Good luck!

One hissing one shut down


I have two Quadras not sure about the GPS. The only way to clean them properly is to complete the folowing steps. This will eliminate the hissing noises and intermittent shutdowns. Clean the blade unit as normal and leave it out of the unit. Unplug the unit, remove the four phillip screws on the top of the unit where the collector grid slides down. Next remove the four screws holding on to the base of the unit. After this you will see two additional screws also by the base that need to be removed. Look carefully between the grills of the unit and you will see about 12 to fifteen tiny screws that hold the grill together. After these are removed take off the UL label and seprate the grill. You may have to gently pull up on the top where the power switch is located. I have found if you use a lightly dampened scotch brite pad to carefully clean the two wires works best. Clean the wires and pins at the bottom and make sure all is well. Use a microfiber or lint free cloth to gently wipe everthing down and make sure the unit is dry. Put it back together and put the UL sticker back on.

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.

Problem


"A blinking light indicates when the blades should be wiped clean with a damp cloth." I actually had a "handyman" contract last year to visit an elderly gentleman once a month and clean all 9 of his Ionic Breeze GP air purifiers. Before I did that for him, they would make hissing noises and he really didn't like that. Here's how to clean the operative compnents of these machines: First, unplug the machine and place on a work surface, such as a table or kitchen counter. Second, remove the metal blade insert from the top by gripping the release tab and lifting it up and out. Also remove the front and back grilles by pressing on the plastic tab at the bottom and lifting up on them. Third, use a damp rag or paper towel to wipe the three metal blades clean. Do not immerse this assembly in water, because it has to be completely dry when re-installing it in the machine. Fourth, use a small piece of damp paper towel to VERY GENTLY wipe clean the two thin wires inside the unit. These are located behind the two rubbery flat blades just inside the unit and can be accessed from the front side. You won't damage these rubbery flat blades by pushing your hand gently between them, but be VERY CAREFUL when wiping the wires clean. (This step is important, as the wires must be clean.) Fifth, using another bit of damp paper towel, carefully clean the wire attached to the inside of the front grille. Dry this off with a dry bit of paper towel, then clean any accumulated dirt off the front & back grilles. Check the metal contact near the bottom of the front grille (attached to the wire) to verify that it's clean and will make good electrical contact. Sixth, pick the unit up and turn it upside-down & right-side up about 6 to 8 times. The two wires inside have plastic beads on them that slide up and down the wires. This brushes any bits of leftover dust or lint off of the wires. (Again, these wires must be VERY clean.) Seventh, replace the front and back plastic grilles by placing them in their slots and sliding them down to snap into place. Verify that the assembly with the three metal blades is COMPLETELY dry, using a hair dryer if necessary to dry off damp areas, then slide it back into place from the top of the machine. Now the cleaning process is done, so plug the unit in and turn it on to test operation. If it makes ANY noise, then some component is not completely cleaned off, or still has a presence of moisture, which must be completely dried off before the machine is ready for operation. Hope this helps! ;)
