    I am not sure what you mean by contacts. If you mean the 2 things that slide up and down on the wires. they are fine.

    I'm not sure I'm getting thru as my computer keeps freezing up. I do not have the 2 pack quadra ionic breeze pro. I have the large quadra breeze - professional series with a ozone guard. I know all about tha problems with Sharper Image but I have been using these for years and they do a better job than other brands I have tried. So I want it fixed. Who can help me ????

  • jodee1939 Sep 24, 2008

    I have a 29" Sharper Image quadra breeze air purifier- professional series. The speed light works, the power boost light does not and there is no air flow. I am aware of the problems with Sharper Image but I happen to love this one and I want it fixed if at all possible.Some one said that the contacts may be broken but if that is the case how can it be fixed? Please - give me some practical advice..

  • jodee1939 Sep 24, 2008

    I can say it is working because up until yesterday I was using it. I can also say that I have used several different brands of air cleaners and this one has done the best job.Compared to the other ones I have used, this one collects 3 to 4 times more.

    Evidently your advice is to throw it away. That may be one solution but not the one for me.

    I have a large Ionic breeze - professional series air purifier.

  • jodee1939 Sep 28, 2008

    At last, a practical solution I can try - if I can figure out where the plate is. These purifiers are a big pain but I like them.

I am a purifier dealer and this may be as simple as cleaning the unit. The ionzer plate should be soaked in a cleaning solution. Make sure all contact points are tight. The vpower boost it's self or a pc board maybe malfunctioning.

Sharper Image has recalled the units.  Consumer Reports released a report on all ionizers and the quadra failed.  Sharper Image tried to sue Consumer Reports over the findings but they couldn't prove that the unit cleaned the air.  Sharper Image was ordered to pay all legal fees forcing the company into Chapter 11.
EPA data has proven that ionizers not only are ineffective at cleaning the air but they are harmful to use as well.  EPA.gov has a report on it.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to release a report on all ionizers.  It's possible that they will no longer be for sale in the U.S. next year.
Sharper Image also recalled the ionizers for $35.  Since there in bankruptcy now I don't think the program is no longer available.

    If a machine was proven in court not to clean the air, and EPA data says that ionizers are no good to use, then how can you say it's working?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Sep 24, 2008

    Even WebMD says not to use them if you have respritory problems. If you need the air cleaned use a HEPA filter.

    Just a little blog I found today you can show anyone who tells you how wonderful a Sharper Image Ionizer cleans the air out to take a look at this:

    For those of us who have been copier technicians for many years have been told how bad ozone pollution from a copier is to our health would certainly know that an electrically charged stick in the house does the same thing.

I have 2 ionic breeze air purifiers sharper image.(germical )


I have the same problem as gerardperez7. One of my germicidal light quadras won't turn the light on and doesn't appear to be cleaning the air at all. I even put a new light bulb in it and it doesn't fix the problem.

MIDI Ionic Breeze quit working


Unit seems to need reset...To do this simply, with unit still plugged in, set to off by selecting on button until there are no high, med, or low lights on. unplug unit from wall for about 15 seconds then plug back into wall socket and select your favorite setting high, med. or low. The order in which you perform this task must be as stated above and the unit must be clean and the door and cleaning rod must be in home position. Hope this helps, mines working fine now but took a couple tries to find right order to reset.

Sharper image quadra-professional series stopped working


Sharper Image has discontinued the product after Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers.  Sharper Image couldn't prove they cleaned the air and had to pay all legal fees forcing the company into Chapter 11.  They recalled the items as well but couldn't honor the checks.
EPA data has proven that in some environments they can be harmful to use.
Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to issue a report by the end of the year.  It's possible that sales of all ionizers will be gone by next year.

SHARPER IMAGE AIR CLEANER HAS STOPPED WORKING, NO BREEZE COMING FROM UNIT AND BLADES ARE NEVER DIRTY. THE "ON" LIGHT IS ON.


Sharper Image no longer supports Ionic Breeze machines. They recalled them a few months back since Consumer Reports and the EPA has determined that they weren't working and can even cause health hazards during usage. Sharper Image sued an lost forcing the company in bankruptcy.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to make a decision on sales of all ionizers in the U.S. by the end of the year. It's looking like you won't be seeing these around much longer.

No power.


there is a small micro switch that is actuated by the grid. This is mounted on the side of the top control piece. There are two wires attached to the little circuit board, usually one is corroded so you need to cut it back and soder it to the center pin of the switch.

Blinking blue lights on top


OK so after a bit of investigating there is still HOPE!

There are no details about the blinking light except that the unit is "broken". Mine appears to still be somewhat functioning as I smell ionized air.

As you all know, Sharper Image is Bankrupt and their stores have all closed. Here's where the ray of sunshine comes in:

If you purchased the extended warranty all you have to do is call 1-866-686-2463 24 Hours 7 days a week. The gentleman who helped me confirmed the information on my original receipt so there must be some database I am registered under. I will be receiving a replacement within a week.

I will take mine apart to see if I can repair the broken unit and if I find out the problem I will post up.

Here is something for you to try...Unplug the unit and plug it back in while holding down the boost button. This seems to trigger some form of diagnostic. On Low the clean light is red and then amber in the other positions. The boost button flashes. It may do something different for you that is why I bring this up.
