    .5 ohms. house fuse was blown from other source. units ok, me idiot lol

  • Mark Egan May 11, 2010

    Need to know what the resistance of the continuity is. If 0 ohms, then there is a short circuit somewhere. Is the fuse you speak of inside the unit, or is it your house power fuse?

My unit will not come on


You probably have a loose connection or component somewhere in the machine, or possibly the motherboard/computer system is non-functioning.
First, check all connections and components!
1) Make sure the plug in the back is inserted firmly and the wall socket is live.
2) The little switch by the plug should have the "I" end depressed and the "0" end up.
3) Check to make sure the back screen is inserted firmly, depressing the interior safety switch. (It will click when positioned correctly).
4) Try both the manual and remote controls. If the manual control work, but the remote ones do not, check to see if the little plastic battery shield is still in the remote. Remove it by pulling on the little tab. If that's not the issue, also try a new battery in the remote.
5) Remove the plug in back, and pull out the fuse to see if it is blown. If so, replace it with the EXACT same size fuse, available at an auto parts store.
If none of these troubleshooting steps works, then it would appear that the problem is in the computerization. Unfortunately, Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) is no longer servicing nor selling the Breeze. Your only option to get it fixed would be to find a dealer who still has some, along with extra parts, in stock. If you call Customer Service, they will give you some trade-up options. 800-989-2299. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

I lost neutral on the electrical service and my cleaner no longer works, i changed the fuse that had blown, but when i turned the filter on it simply blew the new fuse


Blowing a new fuse would indicate that there is some component of the machine which was damaged. The fuse is a safety device which keeps electricity from flowing through defective wiring.

You can visually inspect the machine to see if there are any wires, connections, or components that appear to be damaged, burned, loose, or broken. The plates need to be perfect, without cracks, burned spots, loose mucilage, broken screens, etc. The contact fingers should be screwed firmly in place, and they should press firmly against the screen part of the plate.

If you can detect and then repair any of the above defects, and if the machine still blows the fuse, you can assume that the problem is deeper in the machine and it needs professional help! Unfortunately, Vollara (formerly EcoQuest) no longer makes or repairs the Flair. You can contact Vollara customer service 800-989-2299 to locate a dealer in your area; they may have another machine or know where you could get one. They may also know of someone who could repair it for you.

Absolutely nothing happens when i turn it on, it says to check fuse. how do i figure out where the fuse is


The fuse is contained in a compartment just above, but integral to the plug receptecle on the unit (where the cord plugs into the unit). First unplug the cord from the unit. Next pry the fuse out with a small straight screw driver. If you own the 110v version (as opposed to the 220v unit) you'll need the 1.6 amp slow blow fuse. For the 220v unit use the 1 amp slow blow fuse. Just match up the fuse you remove from the unit. The above information was found in the manufacturerers owner manual. Found online at: http://www.ecoquestintl.com/support/US40135_Fresh_Air_Owners_Manual.pdf

Will not turn on Have checked switch under filter Have checked continuity of the fuse plates are making contact Ecoquest Breeze AQ


Have you checked the fuse? It is located in back of the Breeze in the fuse holder next to where the plug connects to the purifier. It uses a 1.0 Amp slow blow for 110 volt models and 0.5 Amp slow blow for 220 volt models.

Fuses


Hi lmallu0821,

1. Make sure the safety cut-out switch on the lint screen in the back is properly engaged by the plastic plug on the screen. If this is out-of-position, nothing works (nor should it). This may fix the problem.

2. Check the fuse; if blown again, you have a short someplace that the fuse is protecting you from. Look for loose connections, or damaged components. Also make sure that nothing got left in the machine (eg. thread from cleaning rags), or any wires didn't get properly re-connected when you cleaned it.

If this doesn't fix it, write back with more details - - will the fan run, but not the O3 plates, or vice versa - - I'll need more infomation at that point.

If/when this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Hi again,

For some reason, I think the system has hanged. My windows shows that you are still typing a message for more than an hour. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Anyway to your concern, if you were able to take it apart, checking would require that you use a continuity tester set at X 1. You need to check from the plugs back to where it went inside. The idea is to check the wires inside the cord. The meter/needle moving towards the extreme right indicates good continuity. Thereafter follow the two wires where they went inside. It maybe a circuit board, it maybe a fuse, or even the switch. The switch and fuse should also be checked for continuity.

Since your problem is a completely dead unit, then chances are the problem is among those listed above to be checked. If by chance none proved to be defective, am afraid that you have to seek the services of a qualified professional as all other tests requires a fair knowledge of electronics/electrical circuitry and components and possibly parts replacement.

Again our apologies.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

No lights no fan on Alpine Air XL-15


Use a DVM continuity function to see if the fuse is blown, and check all the DO FIRST literature packed with the thing. You probably get to take a note out of the ionizer chamber.
