Ecoquest Fresh Air Purifier Quit Working

Hello,
We have an Ecoquest Fresh Air Purifier that we bought new on ebay something like three years ago. It's been working great until recently, when the message screen told us to "Replace Lamp." We did so, but it still gives that message. We have run the purifier anyway, with no apparent problems. We moved the purifier a couple of nights ago to the living room to purify the air after we painted there. This morning we unplugged it and moved it again so that some floor work could be done in the living room. When we plugged it in again, it just didn't come on. We tried different plugs, but it still didn't work. Other devices plugged into the same outlets worked fine. We don't know what to do. Do you have any knowledge about this, or suggestions? I don't want to pay $190 for someone to repair it, which is the price I saw online. Thanks!
Linda

My husband came home and checked out the unit. He discovered that the cord was bad, so he replaced it with one we had. It works fine. The cord plugs into the unit at one end and into the wall at the other end. There was no rewiring needed. Problem solved!

Can't find uv lamp in Fresh Air by ecoquest


The picture is a classic, with no UV light. Still works great. It got my kids off their inhalers after 15 years of 4 per month. Now 4 per year. A Fresh Air, depending on the age, has a light attached in the bottom of the visible base behind a cage and plate, and the new honeycomb units have the light inside the honeycomb.

My Ecoquest Fresh Air purifier display reads: NEEDS RCI CELL. I have ordered one online, is it safe to run the unit until I receive and replace the rci? I can already tell a difference in allergy symptoms...


By all means run the unit while you wait for the new RCI cell. The purifier will be less effective in killing germs while the RCI cell is out. It will still work to reduce the allergens in the air. Hope this helps you.

Ecoquest Purifier was working when I went to work. When I returned, it was not running and would not start


Hi.

The RCI Cell must probably be replaced, this must be done about every three years. Ecoquest has no website or online support. You can get support calling the number listed on the manual below.

The part costs about $90, parts available here.

Replacement is explain at page 15 in manual available here.

There is also a debate on health concerns related to ionized air purifiers. Here Ecoquest answer, stating the product is safe.

On the other hand:

The Dangers of Ionic Air Purifiers

Ionic Air Cleaners

Please read also this article.

Before replacing any part I suggest to read the articles. Ozone related concerns have caused the recall of other similar devices.

Regards.

Ginko.

I have a Fresh Air Unit from Ecoquest. The


Hi,

When that message appears the plate does not make good contact with the two contact points. You can use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip to clean the points. After 1-2 years it is also advisable to change the purifier plate. Plates are about $15 and can be purchased at EcoQuest.com

If the plate is dirty (and this can unnoticeable grime-grease) clean the plate with 1 part clear ammonia and 1 part water. An old tooth brush works great.

Ecoquest FreshAir - UV Flickering


UV bulbs, or rather the RCI cell needs to be changed every three years in the FreshAir, or when the "Replace RCI cell" appears, whichever comes first. The UV bulb loses its intensity over this period of time.
