Question about Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP SI730 Air Purifier
Hi mak,here is your solution...
What is happening is this: the main electrical component is overheating and forcing the machine to turn off. When it cools, the machine turns back on. Yes, that is actually what is causing the blinking.
There is no solution for this as the main electrical component (a high voltage capacitor in this case) has failed due to stress. In my case, the machine worked for 2 months before failing. The only real solution is to have the unit serviced. However, as there is no service centers, we are all out of luck.
I believe this could be a class action law suit against sharper image for selling units built with components it knew would fail after a short period of time. They had hundreds of reports with this same failure and they knew the cause. Pressing the "boost" button too much causes extreme stress on the capacitor and shortens its life drastically. This capacitor is what provides the power to the ionizing wires.
Thanks for using FixYa.
