Presumably it meets all relevant safety standards, otherwise it would not be permitted to be on the market in most civilized countries.  That said, it certainly produces ozone which, while a highly effective odor destroyer, is an environmental pollutant and causes upper respiratory tract irritation and other symptoms (check out ozone in wikipedia, and you won't want to be around it for long!).
Personally, writing as a qualified chemist and biologist, I would not want to be in the same room as a working ozone generator. 
Does that help?

My ionic breeze quadra air purifier keeps turning on and off. I have cleaned the fins, what else can i do?


Hi.

The filter will probably need replacement. Ionic breeze purifier are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. Parts are also not distributed anymore.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

My Quadra Ionic Breeze, has a small glowing fire within it at the base. There is a smell of plastic/electric burn. Though the odor did cover the odors in my house, I think I have a fire hazzard on my...


the ionic breeze uses high voltage to move/filter air .. if the insulators break down there will be an arc such as what you see .. there is a way to dig out the carbonized material and seal it with materials that can handle the high voltage but any repairs are costly .. its unlikely you can repair it for less than a new conventional filter .. the ionic breeze was unique and expensive but didn't move a lot of air ..it was quiet but often produced some ozone .. long exposure to ozone is not a good thing .. here is a site where you can learn more about your unit
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_ioniser
check out where it says "Consumer Reports court case" ... that said, the electrostatic concept does probably remove small particles that are hard to do with conventional filters .. the arcing you see in your unit is indeed not safe . ... here is more that you likely don't want to hear..
http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2008/02/sharper_image.html
in the next one look down where it says "Ionic breeze" under "helpful information" that will frost the cake
http://www.sharperimage.com/Pages/Helpful+Information/#ionic_breeze
i am sorry to say that your expensive ionic breeze is not safe and not repairable.

Unit will sometimes make a crackling noise.


Mine does it too, I finally just tried something else when I was cleaning the blades. I took some alcohol on a qtip and with the blades out of the machine I wiped up and down the line wires that are inside that go from the top to the bottom, and also the little balls that are on the bottom of the wires that slide when you turn your unit upside down. It seems to work, I do it every time I clean the blades. scribner062

Ionic breeze gp does not work .


Hi.

Check power cord. If power cord has a built in fuse, replace it.

If the model is post 2007, to get parts or repair contact Ionic Breeze support. Here contact page.

If the model was manufactured before 2007, read below, in that case I suggest not proceeding with the repair.

I want to call attention on the fact that several of old Ionic Breeze models are not being manufactured anymore because of health concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts for old models that raised concerns are not distributed anymore.
I suggest contacting manufacturer, if parts are not available, then the purifier was among the ones related to health concer. In that case I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

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.

Ionic Breeze Quatra


Check online to see if you can purchase just the replacement parts and fix it yourself. Chances are, however, you might be forced to send it to the manufacturer to get it repaired.

Check your local stores (WalMart, Target, etc) in the luggage area and get one of those power converters that you use when you travel to a different country. I wouldnt leave home without it. it pays for itself when you consider how much stuff you can literally destroy and cook off because the voltage is different than what it is here in the USA.
