This is a common problem with the Air Towers. what needs to be replaced is your power supply. If you turn the tower on silence, and you listen very closely to the base of the tower you should hear like a little zapping or buzzing noise. the only way to get it replaced is to take it to an Authorized Oreck dealer and as long as your machine is still under warranty, 5 years from the purchase date, it will be free of charge. also when ever you wash the cell you want to make sure its completely dry. let it sit out for at least 12 hours. 24 hour is ideal.
It's attached to the pulse radio-wave ionizer. It comes on when the unit is on to show the radio wave is working. It's not needed and I've never seen a replacement but Radio Shack could probably help you replace it if you wanted.
Not so fast with the screwing part. Go to a music store, buy the G string wire(008)gauge- at least 41 inches long- for a guitar. If you have a digital camera make a video/pics history of your dis-assembly steps. Remove the ozone eliminator-by pulling it off the tower. Start with the base 4 screws, followed by the 2 collar screws at the base. NOTICE that there is a space between the two halves at the bottom. I paid NO attention to this space-boy did I ever try to snugly close that one before I looked at another one to see that this separation is there for a reason. Next: remove the "TINY"12 screws - 6 on the front/back side of the units ribs-look for these. Take pics of each step. You will be happy you did this. Store all of these diff. screws in separate jars. Open the unit now like a wallet. Notice that the sloped top control button/light module can now be removed. See those 2 black square plastic covers-they hide a spring and an upside down W shaped wire holder. The broken wire can now be removed. If you are lucky, you may be able to to twist your new wire-after pushing it through the cleaning bead -with the one going down to the bottom module. Mine was too brittle and broke apart as soon as I touched it. Remember: The 2 wires you see are just one 41 inch long 008 gauge guitar string. They thread through a signal contact bracket at the bottom of the unit that is activated by the breaking of the wire to turn the unit OFF. Getting to this bracket is somewhat difficult and requires patience. Take a lot of pics to be able to reassemble the S 1637. I pulled the 41 inch long string under this signal bracket, evened off the ends, moved the top module down 2 inches and twisted the ends around the W shaped bracket that compresses the spring. Honestly, I had to adjust the spring two times because I left off the cleaning bead. Now just reverse the steps and you got your unit working. The new string seems to push a lot more air. Before you replace all of the screws, fold the unit together, insert the blades , put 2 sets of veggy rubber bands around the top and bottom and plug in/turn it on. Mine works now better than new. Did I mention that I had to do 2. The second was done in 2 hours. Good luck. email@example.com
Un-plug the unit,pull the top piece of plastic off and lay it on its back.While its on its back a little peice of plastic drops and allows you to slide the ionic parts back inside..Try cleaning with regular shop and water and cotton towel..
When you cleaned everything did you also turn the whole unit upside down and gently shake to remove trapped dirt in the bottom of the unit. As for taking this unit apart to clean throughly there is no need. Just use some q-tips with 91% Isopropal alcohol not Rubbing alcohol to get to the small areas. Pay close attention to the small arrow shaped metal contact near the bottom of the unit. Make sure it is wiped clean and everything is completely dry. Plug unit back into power and the red button should turn green.
If you're referring to one of the ionizer wires (wire that has beads on it to clean the wires) then unfortunately, I'm afraid the unit can't be repaired. As Sharper Image has no authorized repair centers or replacement parts. If you're referring to wiring in the base of the machine, then a repair could be affected by either cleaning off the wire ends and reattaching them with a small piece of wire or soldering the broken wire back to the unit itself. Sadly, many of us (myself included) spent a lot of money on these units and the only place I've found parts is a website called http://breezerepair.com/parts.html (not an authorized repair center) but of the parts they have carry, they don't have the wire you referred to. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
If you are talking about the 2 thin wires inside the unit, it can be fixed if you are good with taking things apart. You have to do an almost complete tear-down of all the internal components (many hidden screws). You can replace the broken wire with a .009 or .008 gauge E string for an electric guitar. This can be found at a local musical instrument store. The string must be cut to almost the exact length. The wire has a spring tension mount on a small circuit board. If the replacement wire is too long, there will be too much slack, too short and you will not be able to put it back together. I did this and it took me hours. I removed about 80 screws to disassemble it.
