I have three settings high,med, low,a small amount of air flow is the same on all three settings,and the ionic is silent,exempt for partial that are being caught. Is this still working the way it suppose...


there is no fan so yes it sounds like it is working correclty. The three different levels add or subtract volts to the cell there by collecting more or less dirt. keep it clean it should work a very long time

Makes hissing sound, then immediately clicks to "clean"


you need to turn it off and remove plates,put in kitchen sink and spray with windex and dry with paper towels, now clean the bottom of the three plates too.
before you reinstall the plates look down inside you will see three thin lines of metal,make sure there is no lint or dust on them,reinstall and let set for five min. to allow any windex that might still be wet then turn on low for a couple of min.then go to medium

Intermittent hissing approx. every five minutes.


Sounds like the wires inside have collected some dirt. You should unplug it and tip the base unit upside down a couple times to see if you can dislodge it.

I own an Ionic Breeze Quadra unit. It has been working fine and I really like it because it removes bad odors from the house. Mine has just started making a hissing noise. Any suggestions? Thanks


hi,
Sparking, popping, hissing or crackling sounds coming from your Ionic Breeze air cleaner are all signals that it's time to clean your machine. Once you've cleaned the collection grids inside the Quadra, the disruptive sounds will disappear


how to clean

Turn off and unplug your Ionic Breeze Quadra.Grasp the horizontal handle on top of the air cleaning grids--this is in the very center top of your Ionic Breeze Quadra--and pull the grids straight up out of the casingWipe the metal grids down, inside and out along the entire length, with a clean damp cloth. You may need to use more than one cloth if the grids are very dirty.Go back over the grids with a clean dry cloth to remove any water and remaining dirtPut the grids aside on a clean, dry surface and grasp the body of the main Ionic Breeze casing unit in both hands.Flip the casing unit upside down, then right side up, five or six times. You should hear a small bead sliding back and forth as you do this. The bead is cleaning interior elements concealed in the casing; if you don't hear it, your unit may be in need of repair.Place the casing unit back on its base, orient the grids so that the handle slopes in the same direction as the top of the air purifier, then carefully slide them back down into the machine.

Hissing noise from Ionic Breeze


The hissing noise is caused by the 5000-volt grid wires arcing. If you look inside the unit closely in the dark, you'll see blue electrical arcs -- these generate the hiss.

The arcing is caused by deteriorating grid wires. If you've cleaned it as well as you can, and it still hisses, it won't be long before it fails.

With Sharper Image out of business, don't know if there is still a repair service for these units.

Ionic Breeze Quatra Hissing Noise


While the device is turned off and the filter is out, tip the unit itself upside down and back. Do this several times, there is a slider type cleaner inside that moves as you turn the unit. Be sure to do this every time you clean your filter and you will never hear a peep out of the thing.

I have cleaned them well and have shaken alot, but still when I turn them on I get a hissing.


noise is normal, hissing and crackling all normal, you are magnatizing dirt with high voltage and causing it to stick to another magnetic section in the cleaner, these things operate on voltages in the range of 10,000-40,000vdc
