How to fix a sunbeam sb980 rechargeable bug zapper?

Unit is plugged to the wall but it does not appear to be taking a charge. (The light which would normal be lit when the unit is charging is dark.) I have opened the top and bottom and it appears that all the cables are in contact with all the proper connections.

SOURCE: it appears to have been on fire,surronding walls & unit covered i

hmmmm... maybe it was on fire... Barring that,
One thing to be aware of is how these things work: they don't actually filter the air. Rather, they electrically charge dust/dirt/etc. particles in the air as they pass through. This new charge makes them attracted to walls, floors, objects, etc. So rather than straining or filtering dust from the air (like a more traditional air filter), they make dust more likely to stick to walls, surfaces, etc. so that you can then wipe them up.
If there is something in the room that is manufacturing air pollutants, it could cause the problem you're having. The most likely culprit is anything that makes smoke. For example: smoking (duh), or burning CANDLES (especially scented candles) or INCENSE.

SOURCE: recently cleaned unit. now i am getting arcing on

The arcing sound comes from a loose fit. You may have to bend the contact bar so it fits tightly against the unit.

Testimonial: "worked like a charm, thanks"

SOURCE: oo.comAFTER CLEANING UNIT AND INSERTING

This is a common problem and if it's still under 1 year warranty, contact Ionic Pro at 800-875-8577 for a replacement that will cost you $20 for shipping to/from.
The high-voltage supply has died and cannot be repaired by the average repair person as parts just are not available.
When they get these back, they go into the trash and send you a new one.
TO PROLONG ITS LIFE, plug this into a surge protector as the electronics that are in this don't have any protection against even a small surge.

Should my 1.5 acre stinger bug zapper zap when I plug it up


Intuitively, I glean it zaps when you turn it on only if you are a bug. Zapping is caused by the bug encountering the zapper. Otherwise, it would zap you even if you were not a big bug, simply because you were in close proximity.

The plastic insulators may have become dislodged. If the filter is fully dry, and it is arcing, look for plates that are nearly touching. and look for the distinctive black residue the arcing will leave behind.

Depending where the arcing is occurring, the cell may need to be replaced if inslutors have degraded excessively.

If hair or a dust bunny get in there, it is comparable to a bumble bee getting caught in a bug light zapper- it might take a while to clear.

Our Brookstone air purifier sounds like a bug zapper in spite of cleaning filter. It's less than a year old. What is the problem?


have you cleaned the connections where the filter connects . There is prob dust and dirt down inside the filter , keeping it from making a good connection. The zapping sound is from the electricty jumping the gap. A good cleaning of the inside should help. Try attaching a small hose to your vac to fit down inside the unit. give the electrical connections a good cleaning . If that dosen't work take unit apart and wipe down with alchol that you can buy at any drugstore

No ozone smell


You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers
