It was recalled because Consumer Reports tested ionizers and Inoic Breeze got a negative review. Sharper Image sued Consumer Reports and lost. Not only did they lose but they were ordered to pay all the legal fees forcing the company into chapter 11. Not only did Consumer Reports data ruin their case but data from the EPA shows that ionizers can be harful to use.

The Consumer Products Safety Comission is going to issue a report on all ionizers by the end of the year. Their report could prevent anyone from selling them. This business should have been regulated years ago and no one stepped up to the plate until this year about it.

I need 2 new UV-C Germicidal Lamps for GP and GP Pro.


Hi.

Both Ionic Breeze purifier and replacement parts had been retired from the market because of health concerns related to ionic technology. Parts are sometimes available on ebay, but I suggest not carrying any repair on this unit.

Please read the brief article that I wrote here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r5303535-ionic_breeze_parts_repair

Ionic breeze gp does not work .


Hi.

Check power cord. If power cord has a built in fuse, replace it.

If the model is post 2007, to get parts or repair contact Ionic Breeze support. Here contact page.

If the model was manufactured before 2007, read below, in that case I suggest not proceeding with the repair.

I want to call attention on the fact that several of old Ionic Breeze models are not being manufactured anymore because of health concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts for old models that raised concerns are not distributed anymore.
I suggest contacting manufacturer, if parts are not available, then the purifier was among the ones related to health concer. In that case I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Ionic breeze gp just stopped working


Hi.

I don't know if you are still trying to repair the air purifier.

About your Ionic breeze purifier, I wanted to report that they are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. New model built from 2008 use a completely different technology. Parts are also not distributed anymore, and the new Sharper Image does not provide any support for the old model.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Installation is easy, you just pull up on the tab on the bottom of the filter and pull up. When you are looking at the bulb, turn it 1/4 turn, (2 clicks) and pull it out. That is all there is to it.

Sharper Image Design Ionic Breeze GP Professional Series Mod 1861


My professional series Ionic breeze GP blows out what seems to be clean air but the purple lights inside it are no longer working. Can anyone tell me where I can find replacement bulbs or just what I need to do to get it working again. I got it as a gift 4 or so years ago. The gift giver says there was a 5 year warranty on it but I am not sure. Any advice would be helpful.

thank you. Nicole

I have the Ionic breeze Professional Series GP. It wont turn on...like its getting no power, but it is plugged in. It has no lights nothing!


Ionic Breeze is no longer being supported by Sharper Image. They did have a recall program on the product but I believe it has been discontinued.

The product was proven not to clean the air by Consumer Reports as well as EPA studies. Sharper Image tried to sue but lost.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is reviewing all ionizers and will make a decision by the end of the year. Due to health issues with using the machines themselves, these machines may disappear for good.
