Sharper Image has recalled the units after Consumer Reports reported that they didn't work. They went to court Sharper Image couldn't prove that they did work, was ordered to pay all the legal bills, and filed for Chapter 11.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to issue a report at the end of the year on all ionizers. Their decision will effect sales of all ionizers in the U.S. With EPA data indicating that not only do they work but there harmful to use, it's beginning to look like the product is going to vanish.

Ionic Breeze Red cleaning light on after a few minutes of running


I have the same problem and haven't been able to fix it. However, others have had the same problem and have posted their solutions. The sizzling sound is caused by electrical arching between the plates and one or both of the two tungsten wires that are run parallel to the plates (if you turn off all the lights and wait for your eyes to adjust to the dark before turning on the Ionic Breeze, it's a pretty cool light show!) Here are things found by others to cause the arching and what they did to fix the problem:
  • --dirt, lint, or tiny hairs stuck somewhere (usually towards the top or bottom of the plates or wire, and maybe in the grid contact points). Clean it better. Using canned air can help blow out the problem.
  • --water droplets. Make certain there is no moisture anywhere when you put the grid (plates) back in. Using canned air can help dry hard to reach areas.
  • --burn marks or melted plastic. These indicates a short circuit. Says dnewcombe1: "There is a feeler bracket that guides the two rear thin wires while the cartridge is being inserted. This "feeler" can melt and become disarranged." You can't fix this issue.
  • --build up on the ionizing wires. Clean them. It's hard. I took mine apart and used steel wool.

There's a link to the manual here:

Need replacement grids for Sharper Image Model S1637 since clips at bottom have broken off of grid.


Replacement grids have been posted to ebay. You can replace the complete unit for $45 on ebay so that would probably be a better solution. The last grid I purchased on ebay for similar was around $20.

Have a silent air purifier quadra model # s1637


If, when you push the on button it sizzles for a sec and then shuts off (clean light goes on), I have the same problem and haven't been able to fix it.
