Default Oreck XL Air Purifier Repair

Electronics are OK but the fan is super noisy on both my units.
Took it to the local Oreck dealer and they said no can fix.
These have the buttons on the top and have a silver removable cover to
access the filter.

But can it be fixed ? Bearings available ?

Amazon has new but it will not let me make a purchase based on my
location (Southern California). Why ?

I have used the two I have for over 10 years but now cannot stand the noise.

10 years is a significant run time for a fan motor. You could try lubricating the bearings but it may only provide temporary abatement of the noise, if any. It's unlikely that bearings are replaceable, and even less likely that you'd be able to find them.

You might have better luck trying to replace the entire fan.

Is there a exploded view manual around to see how to disassemble ?

This site seems to have at least some of the models shown in exploded view.

Perhaps because of Californias strict air pollution laws? Maybe something
sold as an 'air purifier' in California has to do more than those units do?

Mere speculation.

Or possibly because it is an ozone generator...

Only generates Ozone when you hear a snap.
There is an ozone filter in it they say.

It almost does not matter. Most of the models, including the SP models show the fan motor as no longer available.

I'd say it's time to retire the units. You've gotten 10 years service out of them. That's good by today's standards, especially for a product that uses high voltage.

The manual says it generates ionized air.
That by definition is ozone

No. You can generate ion flow if yo keep voltage at point below actual
beginning of arching. ozone is normally higher voltage AC so mix charges.
The mixed charged ion generator is used in various production like
electronics for static removal, like bench work. Also used on air spray
nozzles. Ion generators make particles stick to walls, filters, etc. With
an ion generator, it should produce no more ozone than sunshine.

I hate those barrel fans.

Last I heard ions are atoms that have either a net positive or net
negative charge. Meaning there are not an equal number of elctrons and
protons. Ozone is just a molecule, O3. The most common oxygen molecule
is, of course, O2. Either molecule can be ionized though.
