Question about Ecoquest Breeze AT Living Air Purifier

1 Answer

Runs great but does not purify

We have a Breeze AT which runs great but produces no fresh air smell. We noticed the light inside does not glow on this unit. We have two units and one works fine and has a glowing light inside, but the other produces no fresh air and does not have the glowing light. Any help would be appreciated!

I have 2 ionic breeze quadras and the fans will not keep running. My husband smokes alot I was wondering if maybe the tar from the smoke made them sticky or something. What can I do to fix them? Thanks,...


They don't have fans. They attract things using an electricity. if you put your face in front of it you should be able to feel a light amount of air moving and smell what i describe as fresh air. if so it's working fine.

the ionic breeze uses high voltage to move/filter air .. if the insulators break down there will be an arc such as what you see .. there is a way to dig out the carbonized material and seal it with materials that can handle the high voltage but any repairs are costly .. its unlikely you can repair it for less than a new conventional filter .. the ionic breeze was unique and expensive but didn't move a lot of air ..it was quiet but often produced some ozone .. long exposure to ozone is not a good thing .. here is a site where you can learn more about your unit
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_ioniser
check out where it says "Consumer Reports court case" ... that said, the electrostatic concept does probably remove small particles that are hard to do with conventional filters .. the arcing you see in your unit is indeed not safe . ... here is more that you likely don't want to hear..
http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2008/02/sharper_image.html
in the next one look down where it says "Ionic breeze" under "helpful information" that will frost the cake

i am sorry to say that your expensive ionic breeze is not safe and not repairable.

I no longer smell the ozone smell that i used too.


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.

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.

I have a Living Air Purifier - Model Flair with Ecotech


You can download the manual online at http://www.ecoquestonline.net/ownersmanuals_web/flair_om.pdf

Basically let your nose be your guide. When you are right in front of the machine you can smell the fresh air. As soon as you walk in the house you should smell that fresh air smell for about 30 seconds and then it should go to the back of your senses. If not the setting on the machine is too high. Dial it back a notch and wait 24 hours before making another adjustment, until you have the right setting.

Hope this helps!

Ecoquest fresh air repair


Regardless of unit the purifier plates may need replacement. How are the plates cleaned? Could it be that there is a residue from the cleaning agent present after cleaning? With new plates there is a little oil on the plates to prevent oxidation when in storage or transit. A little rubbing alcohol would do the trick.
Make sure the plates are dry before putting them back into the unit.

If the plates are seated right and clean you should see a faint purple glow on the plates when the unit is on purify.

Let me know if that's the case.

Smell in the air


If the smell is not electrical as JEShandyman was asking, but rather from something trapped in the lint filter you could try putting the unit under a box and put it on sanitize. Let it run for 30-60 minutes and see if that cleared up the problem. Washing and drying the filter first is a good idea.

You should never get a head ache from the smell the machine produces. The fresh air the machine produces reacts with the odors and contaminants in the environment and that can potentially create other smells. If that happens you should scale the machine back to a lower setting and take it very slowly and ramp it up day by day. This is something you should have been told by the person who sold you the machine to begin with.

I hope this helps.

No ozone smell


This generally indicates that the plate is cracked or not making proper contact. Pull the plate and look very closely as even a tiny microscopic crack anywhere on the plate will produce these results.

Unit stopped smelling


Whenever you clean or replace the plate, you must also clean the contacts that touch the plate, and all supports for the contacts. Clean them with 70% or higher isopropyl alcohol and Q tips. You should also clean the ionization point with a Q tip and alcohol, remove and clean the fan and oil the fan motor front and rear with a drop or two of sewing machine oil. Replace the fan so that it is flush with the end of the shaft. Make sure that the contacts are firmly against the ozone plate when you replace it. They sometimes barely make contact and then don't work well. You can bend them enough to make them fit firmly.
