Why does the blue light flash off and on continuosly"?"


Wayne,
I have attached a copy of the owner's manual. Page 6 in Safety section discusses why the light blinks. I hope it solves your blinking blue light issue.

The blue light blinks


I believe that a blue blinking light indicates that the stainless steel collection blades need to be wiped clean. The unit uses these blades instead of a replaceable filter. Simply wipe them clean with a damp cloth and you should be ready to go!

What does a green blinking light mean on my eco box? Also when cleaning the unit, which way does the metal plate face? Does the metal plate face towards the outside or the center of the unit. I'm...


When the green LED starts to blink, means that there is a bulb failure in the RCI module. It typically glows greenish blue when it working. Check the connector to see if it is seated properly, and also check the power connector for problems. I had a problem with the power connect not making a good contact and it caused the power to be intermittent. I was able to clean the connector with a can of electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack to fix this problem. If you can't get the bulb to light, you will need a new RCI module.

As for the purification plate, the one that shaped like a tongue depressor, it does not matter which way it go back in to the unit. You should be able to get parts from your dealer or you can call the company at 800 989 2299. Hope this helps.

Blue light is blinking and purfier does not work model s1871 mak3800.com


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.
Good Luck!!!

The blue light on my ionic breeze is blinking.


The ionizers were recalled by Sharper Image due to a lawsuit that they lost forcing the company into chapter 11.

There is a thread on this website with further details.
