    I have 2 of these overpriced, no good, now out of business machines. They both did the exact same thing. Blue lights blinking, sparks, smell like something is burning and now just don't do anything! Has anyone a solution????

    Blue lights were blinking constantly. Then even after cleaning thoroughly it would do the same thing. Then we noticed a funny smell and the light wouldn't work. Now neither machine even shows that it is even on or working. We have the Sharper Image GP (2)

This is a repair that someone I know didafter reading a post on the net.....regarding Quadra repairs....and here is a link for repairs....its all one link....so type it into your browser or paste it.....

Remove the grid assembly.

Remove the 4 screws holding the top on.

Gently remove the top as there are wires connected to it.

Once removed, find the microswitch assembly on the side. There will be 2 green wires going to this assy board (PCB).

Examine the bottom of this board. On both my units, the PCB wascorroded badly on the trace that runs from the center lead to the wireconnection. This will cause the microswitch to quit working.

What I did was soldered a wire from the center contact of themicroswitch (center piece coming through the board. There should be alarge solder pool) to the wire connection at the edge of the board.This just 'goes around' the corroded PCB trace.

Worked fantastic on both ionic breezes and took about 5 minutes for thesecond one. The first one took over 2 hours just to find the problem.

I hope this helps.....good luck...thanks for rating my effort....the Fang.

Hi.

I don't know if you still use your ionic breeze.

About Ionic breeze purifier, I want to call attention on the fact that they are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts are also not distributed anymore.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

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.

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.
