Question about Sharper Image Professional Plus Ionic Breeze? QUADRA GP Silent (SI861) (2 Pack) Air Purifier

Ionic Breeze Quadra Silent Air Filter

When I removed the element for its monthly cleaning. One of the plastic foil hinged tabs broke off on the bottom of the element. This looks very easy to replace if I had one. I guess i might trying to glue the leg back on. Is it possible to purchase a new part. Again this hinged tab is on the bottom of the removable element. There are 2 hinged tabs. One tab is broken. Thanks for the help.

    I have the same problem of a broken tab. It was repaired for a short time with some glue but that only works for awhile because the tabs are flipped each time the core is removed for cleaning. It would be simple to replace this spring-loaded tab if we could just find a parts source.

Those two spring-loaded tabs are probably there to scoop away any hairs that might be too close to the corona wires. As another poster said, the unit will work just fine without them; what I can add is that if you get a problem with arcing due to hairs and dust inside the unit, you might have to blow them out manually (vacuum cleaner on blow, or canned air) rather than have them taken care of automatically by those tabs.

The unit works without them. Mine were broken for a year and worked fine.

Thanks so much for the hint. I'm going to plug it in and give it a try. I did call a national air filter repair place and they informed me that because of the lawsuit against Sharper Image concerning these filters that no one can legally sell parts for these units at this time. They are simply not available even to service technicians.

My ionic breeze quadra air purifier keeps turning on and off. I have cleaned the fins, what else can i do?


Hi.

The filter will probably need replacement. Ionic breeze purifier are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. Parts are also not distributed anymore.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

If you're talking about those little plastic tabs at the bottom, they aren't important. Their job is to wipe the ionizing wires when you take the grid out or replace it.

These are special tungsten wire that have special ends on them to hold in place. I have some of that wire, but do not know how the ends are made to make replacements.

One of the wires on my ionic breeze quadra broke. It is one of the wires that have the glass beads on them that you clean by turning the quadra up and down. Can it be replaced and how? Thanks.


You're probably screwed...

The company went under and doesn't service them anymore. It's possible you could find a local repair place that might be able to do something, but there is no authorized or trained service station, and you can't get parts.

You might be able to pick up spare parts if you scour eBay long enough.

Good luck!
