Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP Model S-1871 blinking green light

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.

Sharper Image has recalled all Ionic Breeze Ionizers. This is what put Sharper Image into chapter 11.

For information see the link

See the EPA link as well

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.

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.

There is a red blinking light and it is not cleaning.


My Ionic Breeze would work for a short time after cleaning and the blue light would start flashing and the unit would stop working. I checked the wall cube power adapter with a volt meter. It was putting out only 10 volts instead of the needed 12 volts. It seems The Ionic Breeze needs a full 12-13 volts to work. So I went to Radio Shack and bought a universal 12 volt 800ma power adapter. I checked the voltage in the new adapter, it was 13 volts. This fixed the flashing blue light problem. However the Ionic Breeze produces harmful Ozone gas, so I don't use it anymore.

Ionic breeze quadra constantly blinking cleaning overdue, evenghough it is clean.


If it still works after you cleaned it, consider yourself lucky. If light blinking bothers you, just put a piece of black electrical tape over it and enjoy it. That unit has been driving me nuts for years. I cleaned mine and now it doesn't work at all. A blinking light I could put up with, with a little tape. Enjoy it because it still works.

The blue light on my ionic breeze is blinking.


The ionizers were recalled by Sharper Image due to a lawsuit that they lost forcing the company into chapter 11.

There is a thread on this website with further details.

Sonic air light keeps blinking even after cleaning


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.

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.
