Why walls around IONIC get so dirty

We clean our unit regular. Then I noticed the walls around the unit were black not just dirt but special cleaners to get them clean black. Our unit didn't use to do this when we first bought it. Do you have any suggestions What could cause this? We do have a free standing closed wood stove.

I was burning candles, which apparently caused my units to carbon up and put soot on the walls _ I will never do that again!

We bought this model, I removed and cleaned the metal colums, and now a red light stating the unit needs cleaned stays on and the unit does not work. I swapped the metal part with another unit that was...

There is dirt on the inside of the unit. Remove the metal plates and turn unit upside down and gently shake to release the dirt built up in the bottom, also check metal contact near the base of the unit. If it isn't clean the machine cannot make the magnetic connection necessary for operation. Use a q-tip and 91% Isopropal Alcohol NOT rubbing alcohol. This should get your Ionic Breeze going.

My iconic breeze continues to clean the air, but it smells like 'static' or metal. Does anyone know what is causing this? We will have to throw away very soon.

Check the metal contact near the base of the unit inside by looking through the vents. If it's dirty that's the problem. The contact legs on the bottom of the magnet plate gets dirt on them too. Both need to be clear of any dirt or foreign material. If you are Hearing static instead of smelling it, that means the unit needs cleaning again. Hope this helps

I own an Ionic Breeze Quadra unit. It has been working fine and I really like it because it removes bad odors from the house. Mine has just started making a hissing noise. Any suggestions? Thanks

Sparking, popping, hissing or crackling sounds coming from your Ionic Breeze air cleaner are all signals that it's time to clean your machine. Once you've cleaned the collection grids inside the Quadra, the disruptive sounds will disappear

how to clean

Turn off and unplug your Ionic Breeze Quadra.Grasp the horizontal handle on top of the air cleaning grids--this is in the very center top of your Ionic Breeze Quadra--and pull the grids straight up out of the casingWipe the metal grids down, inside and out along the entire length, with a clean damp cloth. You may need to use more than one cloth if the grids are very dirty.Go back over the grids with a clean dry cloth to remove any water and remaining dirtPut the grids aside on a clean, dry surface and grasp the body of the main Ionic Breeze casing unit in both hands.Flip the casing unit upside down, then right side up, five or six times. You should hear a small bead sliding back and forth as you do this. The bead is cleaning interior elements concealed in the casing; if you don't hear it, your unit may be in need of repair.Place the casing unit back on its base, orient the grids so that the handle slopes in the same direction as the top of the air purifier, then carefully slide them back down into the machine.

Clean lite on /leaves dust on furniture

Ok, makes me wonder why anyone would trust the Chinese to make a reliable product, but... try cleaning the contacts at the base of the blades with an alcohol swab or pencil eraser; if they're the least bit dirty or have a film on them, the contacts will not make up properly and the unit will think it needs cleaning!

Ionic breeze is arcing inside unit

I have a sharper image ionic breeze hybrid gp that ran fine for years unitl it recently started sparking / arcing at the base of the grid blades and always in the same spot. I cleaned it several times but the sparking always came back and the unit went into either "drying grid" or "attention required" mode. The solution I found was to stand the removable grid in 2 inches of Pine-Sol cleaner 50/50 diluted with water for 24 hours then brush again with the cleaning brush and hot water. Presto! No more sparking.
