Question about Ecoquest Fresh Air Air Purifier

2 Answers

What does a green blinking light mean on my eco box? Also when cleaning the unit, which way does the metal plate face? Does the metal plate face towards the outside or the center of the unit. I'm talking about that little piece you pull out will wires and it snaps back into place. It looks like a tongue depressor.

When the green LED starts to blink, means that there is a bulb failure in the RCI module. It typically glows greenish blue when it working. Check the connector to see if it is seated properly, and also check the power connector for problems. I had a problem with the power connect not making a good contact and it caused the power to be intermittent. I was able to clean the connector with a can of electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack to fix this problem. If you can't get the bulb to light, you will need a new RCI module.

As for the purification plate, the one that shaped like a tongue depressor, it does not matter which way it go back in to the unit. You should be able to get parts from your dealer or you can call the company at 800 989 2299. Hope this helps.

Depends on which Fresh Air purifier you have. Some models take the RCI/Active Pure cell which is easily replaced. The older models have an actual elongated UV bulb which is difficult to replace. Contact me and I'm happy to help you and get whatever you need ordered. I've been a rep since 2002.

Blinking 'Check Collector Cell' light


which model XL series do you have? There is obviously something shorted or arcing on the plates of the cell. look at the plates and see if they are laying flat and the wires are all still attached across the front of the cell. A loose, sagging, broken or bad contact on the end plates will cause the bad cell lights. clean off the area where the cell makes contact inside the unit. The metal strips that run across the ends of the cell make contact with the plates inside the cell and get their power from them, dirty contacts in any part of these contacts will cause the problem. Even a bad contact from the end cap to the plates inside the cell will cause this. Try wiggling the cell around, kind of push on it on edge to get the plates to shift slightly and clean the points where the plates touch the outer strips on the sides. Check for arcing with the lights turned off,

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.

My living air xl-15 prove it light does not come on anymore and it seems that the unit does not prodoce ozone. I tested the light in the normal postion set at 12:00 with the plate out but to no avail....


If you are sure that the plate is clean, in perfect condition, and inserted correctly, it would appear that the transformer is defective. This means that power is not going through the metal contact fingers into the plates.

The light probably has burned out. It is not essential to the working of the machine, so it isn't anything you need to be concerned about.

Vollara (formerly Alpine/EcoQuest) is no longer producing or servicing the XL-15. However, a newer version, called the Classic, is available. You can call Customer Service 800-989-2299 and they will tell you your options. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

There is dirt on the inside of the unit. Remove the metal plates and turn unit upside down and gently shake to release the dirt built up in the bottom, also check metal contact near the base of the unit. If it isn't clean the machine cannot make the magnetic connection necessary for operation. Use a q-tip and 91% Isopropal Alcohol NOT rubbing alcohol. This should get your Ionic Breeze going.

The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

I've seen several like that and found the wire connections corroded off. Easy to fix if that's the case. Make sure the unit is UNplugged before taking it apart.

I have an ecoquest fresh air purifier and the end of a red wire was corroded so I replaced the end with a new one, but the unit doesnt seem to be producing any ozone smell or sanitizing. It seems as if...


That corrosion is oxidation for the lug connecting the grid plate.Metal contact fingers make contact on the plates metal grids.The same corrosion exists on those metal contact fingers and the plate itself. Clean the fingers,ensure good connections as the other wire connector spade for the other contact finger is probably compromised. You might de-oxidize the plate by soaking in pure white ammonia.At any rate,I agree about the quality of the machines and you might be faced with a small parts order from eco-quest.Do include the plate, a bulb and the bulb starter. I run 5 of these in a commercial setting and they are fairly enjoyable to work on.

Ionic breeze quadra s 1837


I had a problem with my Ionic Breeze Quadra. Green light would only blink for a second then the red light stayed on. I cleaned unit very good but problem came right back. I blew out the breeze with an air compressor. Not much came out, but now I am green and back in action. I used about 75 psi to clean out.
