Question about Sharp FP-P60CX Air Purifier

1 Answer

Sharp FP-P60X no longer a very quiet machine

Our unit is 3 years old. It has run on a continual basis for those 3 years. However, as it ages it gets louder and louder. What was once a very quiet machine is now making a loud whirring sound.

Is there anything we can do to make it quiet again?

    Have you replaced the filters in that period of time?

    What other maintenance have you performed on the unit?

What type of refrigerant is R22 ?


R22 is the older version of refrigerant, discontinued several years ago as it was found to be an ozone depleting agent. It is no longer available for any type of commercial use. Was used in refrigerators, air conditioners, etc. The new type is R134a, and is available anywhere. Most systems can be converted to R134a without much modification, some of the more aged systems, just have to be replaced with a newer unit or appliance.

I have two ecoquest breeze and they are both around four years old. One just quit working, meaning the fan will not turn, the lights are still on, the other one the lights are all lit up but I cannot...


For the fan:
1) Unplug the machine
2) Remove the front grid.
3) Firmly but carefully pull the fan blades off of the shaft, holding toward the center of the fan, not the blades.
4) Use a light household oil (3-in-1, sewing machine, hair clipper) and put a drop or two on the shaft while you turn it manually. Do this until you feel the shaft moving easily.
5) Leaving the front of the machine open, turn it on and see if the shaft turns. If it doesn't, unplug it again, and continue working small amounts of oil down the shaft and then seeing if it turns.
6) Replace the fan. Turn the machine on, and give the fan a spin if it doesn't turn on immediately.
That should do it for that machine!

The other machine may be set on "Sanitize." This means that it will run at top capacity for 2 hours. Push the "Sanitize" button to deactivate it, then adjust the controls for daily operation. If this doesn't solve the problem, the issue is most likely with the computer system itself, and we can't do anything about that! Unfortunately, Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) no longer services or sells the Breeze. However, there are some options for upgrades and/or trade-ins. Call Customer service (800-989-2299) for options. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

I have a Sharper Image GP Hybrid model 1724. I cleaned the pull out blades and the inside of the unit. When I turn it on, the needs attention light comes on almost immediately. How can I get the machine...


i found a solution to the sparking problem in the ionic breeze. purchased scotch brite cleaning pads from home depot. using a long strip of pad scrub the plates back and forth especially in the areas that seem to be emitting sparks. i did this and the unit runs quiet as a whisper.

Hi my old Honeywell 13520 has acquired a periodic squeal. I am sure it is a motor issue. Any way to tune up these little motors? (Brushes, etc..)


Usually if the motor is squealing, the bearings are dry no lubrication and worn. If you have oil ports you can oil it and quiet it down for a while. Most motors now have self lubricated or oil impregnated bearings, which you can't lubricate. It costs as much for somebody to replace the bearings, as it does for a new motor. Most people replace the motor.

Our Eco-Quest Breeze no longer works. I cleaned


I've seen several like that and found the wire connections corroded off. Easy to fix if that's the case. Make sure the unit is UNplugged before taking it apart.

Shortness of breath, coughing when working out near unit.


I think you've answered your own question: "symptoms cease when unit is turned off".
I don't want to be alarmist, and I certainly do not suggest that there is anything unsafe about the Breeze AT.  Nevertheless, this machine generates ozone, which is an upper respiratory tract irritant.  It is absolutely vital that you follow the manufacturer's instructions to the letter when operating it. Personally, I would never want to be in the same room as a working ozone generator (and I know of at least one ozone generator where the instructions specifically tell you to keep out while it's working).
Your machine may be on a setting where it is producing more ozone than is desirable. If you no longer have the manual, you can download a copy at www.ecoquest.com (click on the DOWNLOADS tab, then on OTHER on the green bar. The Breeze AT is in the Owner's Manuals list.).
If in doubt, play safe!

Breeze just stop running.....


At the rear of the unit is the filter. When the filter is removed, the small screw or whatever it is called, that is attached to the filter on the lower right side, disengages the the safety switch just below the filter on the unit itself, if there is nothing to hold down this safety switch the unit will not operate. So take off the filter, there is a small notch on the unit, inside this notch is the safety switch, Try pressing down on this switch and see what happens. I hope this helps. Also, it may be the fuse.

Sharper Image Ionic Breeze Gp Silent Air Purifier


Ionic Breeze machines are no longer being supported. Sharper Image recalled the product several months ago after it was proven by Consumer Reports and the EPA that the product wasn't cleaning the air and can be harmful to use. Sharper Image took legal action and lost.

The Consumer Product Safety Comission is going to make a decision on all ionizers by the end of the year. It's looking like all ionizers will no longer be sold in the U.S. regardless of who makes them.
