    My unit has sone hte same thing as everyone elses. I used compressed air to blow it out, like they said, and continued to clean the panels as recommended. My blue light flashes, but it sounds like the unit is turning on and off when teh blue light turns on and off. Any input would be nice

    My SI837 Quadra Plus will not work at all and it is still under waranty. If and when they will do anything about it how will I know?
    I also know someone who paid $500 for the GP model and it had only been used a short time. What can we do? Neither will not run at all.

Unfortunately Sharper Image has discontinued support on the product line.  There was a recall going on with the product but since the company is chapter 11 right now, I don't think it is being honored right now.  
What happened was Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers, Sharper Image received a bad score and filed a lawsuit.  They lost the suit and had to pay all legal bills causing Sharper Image to reorganize.
 
The EPA has reported that using ionizers in a house or business may be harmful to your health.  You can read an article about it on their website.
 
The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to release a final report on all ionizers by the end of the year.  Their decision may discontinue all sales of any ionizers in the United States.  This industry should have been regulated years ago just by the EPA data alone and for some reason it has been ignored.

My ionic breeze quadra air purifier keeps turning on and off. I have cleaned the fins, what else can i do?


Hi.

The filter will probably need replacement. Ionic breeze purifier are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. Parts are also not distributed anymore.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

One of the wires on my ionic breeze quadra broke. It is one of the wires that have the glass beads on them that you clean by turning the quadra up and down. Can it be replaced and how? Thanks.


You're probably screwed...

The company went under and doesn't service them anymore. It's possible you could find a local repair place that might be able to do something, but there is no authorized or trained service station, and you can't get parts.

You might be able to pick up spare parts if you scour eBay long enough.

Good luck!

I own an Ionic Breeze Quadra unit. It has been working fine and I really like it because it removes bad odors from the house. Mine has just started making a hissing noise. Any suggestions? Thanks


hi,
Sparking, popping, hissing or crackling sounds coming from your Ionic Breeze air cleaner are all signals that it's time to clean your machine. Once you've cleaned the collection grids inside the Quadra, the disruptive sounds will disappear


how to clean

Turn off and unplug your Ionic Breeze Quadra.Grasp the horizontal handle on top of the air cleaning grids--this is in the very center top of your Ionic Breeze Quadra--and pull the grids straight up out of the casingWipe the metal grids down, inside and out along the entire length, with a clean damp cloth. You may need to use more than one cloth if the grids are very dirty.Go back over the grids with a clean dry cloth to remove any water and remaining dirtPut the grids aside on a clean, dry surface and grasp the body of the main Ionic Breeze casing unit in both hands.Flip the casing unit upside down, then right side up, five or six times. You should hear a small bead sliding back and forth as you do this. The bead is cleaning interior elements concealed in the casing; if you don't hear it, your unit may be in need of repair.Place the casing unit back on its base, orient the grids so that the handle slopes in the same direction as the top of the air purifier, then carefully slide them back down into the machine.

Is my Ionic Breeze Quadra hopelessly broken and beyond repair?


This unit can be replaced on ebay for around $45.00 which is under any labor cost to repair the unit you currently have. You can always post your unit for sale on ebay for parts.

Contacts in ionic breeze contacts are broken


Sharper Image recalled the units because of the lawsuit that they lost against Comsumer Reports. They were ordered to pay all legal bills forcing the company into chapter 11. Not only was it proven in court that they don't work but there are also harmful to use based on EPA data.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is issuing a report by the end of the year which could stop sales of all ionizers in the U.S.

The light on my S1719 Sharper Image Tabletop Silent Air Purifier is flashing and the unit doesn't appear to be working


Unfortunately, I can't find that information, as the company is currently in Chapter 11 and has sold off all rights to it's products as of June. From my experience though, when the light begins to flash, it is supposed to be replaced. At least I had to replace one that way while under warranty.
