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

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: ozone smell

When the unit is clean it will produce more ozone. If the unit is a bit oversized then it becomes worse. As an installer I have to be carefull to not oversize these units. O3 is harmless and actually will only stay in the air as O3 for about 1/2 hour. Because of this it will not build up in the air. O3 also in a powerful disinfectant and will help kill mold and bacteria in the air. As soon as the filter gets a little bit of dust on it the O3 production will become much less. Run your fan continuously for a day or so and it will go away.

Oh I have a an 880 Living Air Purifier. Just installed new plates. The Amber light is always on. Does this mean the ozone is working?

amber light indicates ionization, not ozone. ozone is generated only if you can smell it. You can fix your unit, trade it in for a brand new one or find additional help here: https://freshairpurifiers.net

When I turn my brand new air purifier on on it smells like its burning or going to catch on fire is it supposed to?

That unit is a very heavy duty machine that uses ionization to clean air. There is a high voltage power supply that is used to generate ions. The unit can release ozone and that substance has a definite smell to it. If you have ever been near a copy machine or an electric motor that sparks, you would smell ozone. The concern is whether or not it is ozone. Ozone is regulated by the manufacturers to be held at a permissible level because at high concentrations it is an irritant and can cause respiratory issues by itself. The power unit for that air cleaner is on the top near the back and you can run the machine for a while to see if that area gets hot. That would be a bad sign. All the documentation is here: http://electronicaircleaners.com/f50f1032parts.aspx But if you don't trust the unit, take it or send it back.

How do I read the graduations on the purifier control & what do the 1 or 2 red plate settings tell me?

The graduations are incremental for your ozone output for the purifier control. Generally, the machine can put out enough ozone to cover 3000 sq ft. (when the control is moved all the way to the right, about 5 o'clock.) Half way should be about 1500 sq ft or 12 o'clock. For general air cleansing, you should set the purifier control to produce enough ozone so you smell it when walking into the room (after home) for about 30 seconds. The ozone smell should disappear after that. If it lingers, you've got it set too high. For more severe odor control you can set it higher but remember that some of us are more sensitive to the odor no matter what the setting. It may need some adjustment based on your individual preferences.

I'm confused about the 'red plates' as you mentioned. The original machine comes w/ 2 ozone plates (made of glass) and doesn't produce ozone when one of the plates is removed. I'm guessing that the lines may tell you when you're engaging both plates to work, i.e. more ozone being produced & blown into the room or less only calling on one plate to produce ozone. If you send me a close up pic of the control panel I may be able to tell you more.

Does not produce ozone, I have replaced the fuse, it has been cleaned and the amber light is not on.

it's possible that the ozone generator inside has gone bad. The only way to really know is to remove it from the unit and then test it with a power supply w/correct voltage of coarse. You will smell the ozone immediately if it works upon testing. (clean fresh smell) If it does need replaced, it's an easy fix for anyone with electronics knowledge. You will need to match up the numbers to get the correct replacement. Many are available on Ebay. Always disconnect the power to the unit before taking it apart. Hope this helps, Dave

Hi-I have the Living Air XL. It's out for repair because I cannot smell the distinct clean smell it normally puts out. The repair guy just called and said it's fixed and running, but the green light bulb...

He probably cleaned the unit and restored the plaques. Green light or no green light, it doesn't affect the production of ozone. If still in doubt, when you go to pick it up, have him operate fit or you before you leave the store. I've had one 7years and the green light hasn't worked for three years. I clean it regularly and it still produces ozone when needed. Regular, routine maintenance is the answer.
