Sharper Image ionizers are no longer being serviced. What got them into trouble in the first place was the fact that they were not cleaning the air and that the air they were filtering was hazardous some peoples health. This was based on data by Consumer Reports as well as the EPA. They went to court on it and they lost.

Sharper Image was offering a rebate to people who had purchased ionizers.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be making a decision on ionizers by the end of the year. It could be that they will no longer be sold in the US next year since they are ineffective and can cause health problems.

This is an industry that should have been regulated years ago just by EPA data alone. The idea that charging the air around you gets rid of stuff is a joke. In the copier industry that I work in we are told that it is bad since copiers create ozones in the same way.

SOURCE: Who repairs the sharper image ionic breeze GP

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.....

http://www.airpurifierrepair.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ID=34&ProductId=591


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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: my ionic breeze s1867 turns on and off will not stay on

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.

Ionic Breeze - Press Blue - Press Geen button


The blue means the germicidal lamp is operating. Re: green light - Normal operation at all power levels involves a pre-programmed cycle of altering high and low air movement. Press the the green to override the regular power control setting and run the unit at maximum power for five minutes. Your previously selected power level will resume after the five minutes has elapsed.

Ionic breeze


There isn't one. The reason why Sharper Image went out of business is because the Ionic Breeze was proven to be ineffective product and harmful to use in some cases based on Consumer Reports data as well as data from the EPA. They sued Consumer Reports, lost the case, and had to pay all the legal bills.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to making decision on all ionizers by the end of the year. It's quite possible that no one will be selling them anymore.

There is thread I left in the Ionic Breeze section about the EPA data on ionizers and the harmful effects of using them as well as a link about what happen to Sharper Image.

This product should have been regulated a long time ago. Orek and few others are going to be pulling the plug on them real soon.

My Ionic breeze does not work


Ionic Breeze machines are no longer supported. Sharper Image recalled the whole product line based on data provided by Consumer Reports as well as the EPA. Sharper Image tried legal action and lost forcing the company into bankruptcy.

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