Ionic breeze" air purifiers use electric devices for moving ambient air; however, such devices are not known to have been applied to space propulsion systems nor has their use been suggested for use in the sparse atmosphere of the near-Earthspace environment. Toy devices, known as "lifters," use a tethered ion breeze device for lifting a light frame from the ground. Lifters have not been found to be practical for any significant transportation purpose, because they require substantiallyhigh voltage (e.g., >15 kV) for operation. Moreover, the ionic breeze devices being implemented in air purifiers, as well as toy lifters, rely on the relatively dense atmosphere found near Earth's surface; and they have not been suggested nordemonstrated for operation in the sparse atmosphere of the near-Earth space environment (i.e., in the altitude range of at least 200 km above Earth's mean surface). Although some recent experimental work has been performed using ion breeze engines forendo-atmospheric ion propulsion, such work has been shown to require a magneto-hydrodynamic slipstream acceleration for hypersonic flight to at least orbital velocities at the top of the atmosphere.

Dear,

The problem is the micro switch that detects whether the collector plates are inserted or not, so it is part of the safety mechanism. There is a about a one-inch cylindrical piece of plastic on the front of the collector plate handle. This cylinder goes through a hole and pushes on the micro switch (actually a plastic cover over the micro switch).

regards,

    dear,

    there's another issue
    The rear grill has an electrical contact on it. If the grill is not seated properly, electrical contact is lost and the unit will not run.

    Here's how to remove and reseat the rear grill:

    1. Turn off the unit.

    2. Unplug the unit.

    3. Remove the collection grid.

    4. At the bottom of the rear grill is a blue tab. Pull it toward you and lift the grill up and off. 

    6. Put the grill back on so that the locking tabs go into their slots.

    5. Slide the grill down to lock the

Hi!
The problem is with the micro switch that detects whether the collector plates are inserted or not, so it is part of the safety mechanism. There is a about a one-inch cylindrical piece of plastic on the front of the collector plate handle. This cylinder goes through a hole and pushes on the micro switch (actually a plastic cover over the micro switch).

It appears that arcing inside the switch caused it to get hot, deforming the plastic a little bit and apparently ruining the inside of the switch.

    I think the link below describes the switch, might prove somewhat useful if you want to repair it yourself


    http://www.dicgroup.com/pdf/SM/SM5-01N.p...


    Another of the same model switch is used in the back of the unit to detect whether the rear cover is on (over the UV bulb).
    Find a replacement part to fix it.

    Hey I Wrote An Air Purifier Company For A Schematic And Heres What They Replied?

    No unfortunately we
    do not have a schematic to give or sell for the Ionic Breeze or any of
    the Sharper Image units. They have been fully discontinued and can no
    longer be serviced or have parts sold for them, as they are currently
    being investigated by the EPA and FDA for safety hazard concerns. At
    this point, the only options for any customer with any type air
    purifier with Sharper images is to either consider a trade in program
    with another make and model from a different manufacture or unfortunately considering the disposal of that unit. WE do apologize
    and wish we could assist you further but they are handing out fines for
    any parts or services sold for any of these units so we can not take a
    chance. If you would like to speak to us regarding a trade in
    program to another make and model purifier we do have a brand new
    Lighting Air Plus unit that is currently on 50% off sale and is only
    $349.00!! With your discontinued unit as trade in credit we can offer
    you an additional $80.00 off that price! IF you are interested you may
    contact us at:

    Thank you for contacting us, Air Purifier Repair

    there is a small micro switch that is actuated by the grid. This is mounted on the side of the top control piece. There are two wires attached to the little circuit board, usually one is corroded so you need to cut it back and soder it to the center pin of the switch, thanks jim.

Hi.

Both Ionic Breeze purifier and replacement parts had been retired from the market because of health concerns related to ionic technology. Parts are sometimes available on ebay, but I suggest not carrying any repair on this unit.

Well there is a small micro switch that is actuated by the grid. This is mounted on the side of the top control piece. There are two wires attached to the little circuit board, usually one is corroded so you need to cut it back and soder it to the center pin of the switch. also check the fuse.

MIDI Ionic Breeze quit working


Unit seems to need reset...To do this simply, with unit still plugged in, set to off by selecting on button until there are no high, med, or low lights on. unplug unit from wall for about 15 seconds then plug back into wall socket and select your favorite setting high, med. or low. The order in which you perform this task must be as stated above and the unit must be clean and the door and cleaning rod must be in home position. Hope this helps, mines working fine now but took a couple tries to find right order to reset.

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.

Ionic breeze gp s1730


Ionic breeze gp s1730 I had the same issue. There are two switches in this unit. One closes if the back cover is on, the other closes when the removeable grid is in. My problem was with the later. Mine had corroded wire ends where it is soldered to the small circuit board where the switch is attached to. It also had a bad switch that did not close the circuit and I suspect internal corrosion as well.

Unplug the unit and remove the grid.

Remove the 4 small phillps screws from the front grill, remove front grill.

Remove 2 selector whells from top, remove four screws.

Test the switch function with ohm meter
