Question about Sharper Image Professional Plus Ionic Breeze? QUADRA GP Silent (SI861) (2 Pack) Air Purifier
The green light blinks on this unit as soon as I plug it in the wall on the low/medium/or high button, whichever it is turned to. The other button doesn't light up at all. Even when the on/off button is in the off position, the low/medium/high button, whichever turned to, will blink. How can I solve this problem? Thank you.
I posted a solution to a similar problem I had with my Ionic Breeze GP. I was able to replace a bad switch and get the unit working again. Please check the following Fixya article for details on my fix:

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.

You can purchase a bulb for the GP on ebay for under $11, which is really a
good price considering what you would have paid from Sharper Image.
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. Item Number: 220444965077
