    I have cleaned the unit on time for at least a couple of years. It seems that two of the blades do not work as they are not dirty when I clean them only one is dirty.

  • Dawn6111 Apr 14, 2009

    did you get the comment I posted? It was I have cleaned the unit on time ( when the Light comes on) for at least two years on one of them is dirty the iother two are clean. What can I do?

  • Dawn6111 Apr 14, 2009

    The led light comes on every thirty days. as I said I always clean the blades and then invert it several times, But when I go to clean them again only one of them is dirty,do I need new blades if so where do I get them?. Please respond to this issue.

    thanks Dawn

It is not ILLEGAL to sell sharper image parts -

whoever told you that was trying to get out of a messy repair.

Sharper image cannot SUPPLY parts as they are no longer in business.

Due to the nature of the repair - the repair company can be sued for using non-S/I parts for a repair.

Thanks for using FixYa.

When to clean: Clean the collection blade every one or two weeks. The ‘CLEAN LED’ will turn on with an audible beep sound after two weeks of operation. That indicates it is time to clean the collection blade. Depends on your home air quality, the unit may make audile noise before the ‘CLEAN LED’ turns on. In this case, cleaning of the collection blade and/or a thorough cleaning of the unit is necessary. (Please note that audible noise from the air purifier indicates cleaning of the collection blade or the unit is necessary. It is not a sign of unit defect. In most cases a thorough cleaning will return the unit to normal operation. if the cleaning blade does not solves then its advisable to replace the blade which are not working to avoid the damage in the airpurifier ). How to clean Cleaning the Collection Blade: Unplug the unit before cleaning. Remove the collection blade by pulling it from the top of the unit and wipe off the dust from each of the three collection bars with soft cloth. Invert the entire unit for two or three times before re-inserting the collection blade to the unit. Through Cleaning: If the air purifier makes noise during operation, a thorough cleaning of the unit is necessary. Wash the collection blade with warm soapy water, rinse and allow it to dry for 24 hours before re-inserting to the unit. Bring the unit outside. Use a compressed gas dusting the air purifier to remove any accumulated particles from the ionizing wires and to blow out any dust that is settled in the base of the unit.
keep updated.thanks.

    Three dust collector blades inside collects the dirt. Tiny particles, dust, and pollutants are captured by triple stainless steel blades. Cleaning takes only a minute. the three dust collector blades capture dirty air particles passing between ionizing wires and plates.

    as you said you tried cleaning.and you regularly clean it.but if it still shows up the clean led indication again and again still after proper cleaning.the blades neeed to be replaced.

    6. How often do the collection blades need to be cleaned?
    Depending upon the amount of air pollutants, the collection blades should be wiped or rinsed clean about every two weeks, or anytime the Ionic Breeze makes an audible sound or whenever the cleaning indicator light flashes. (NOTE: Because smoke and airborne residue from burning wood, wax logs or candles is so substantial, we recommend wiping the blades clean as soon as possible after enjoying a fire or candlelight.)

    17. How are the collection blades cleaned?
    Simply slide out the collection blades and wipe them clean with a damp cloth, paper towel or sponge. The blades also may be rinsed clean under the tap or with a kitchen sprayer. (NOTE: It is very important that the collection blades are allowed to dry completely before sliding them back into the main housing.)

    18. What can be done if the Ionic Breeze starts to make noise?
    If basic cleaning fails to stop the noise, try the following special cleaning tips:

    • Unplug the unit and remove the collection grid.

    • Invert, rotate and shake the unit for several minutes. This aggressive action will cause the internal cleaning beads to scrape the ionizing wires inside the unit. Noise can be caused by particles clinging to the wires and the cleaning beads are designed to get rid of these small particles.

    • The above procedure may require several attempts.

    • With the grid removed, up-end the unit and shake out collected dust from the base.

    Plug the unit back in and listen. If the noise persists:

    • Unplug the unit and remove the grid.

    • Remove the back cover to expose the germicidal lamp area. (GP model only.)

    • Use compressed/canned air to blow away debris and dust from the wire and any visible parts inside the unit. (A hand-held hair dryer can also be used.)

    Reassemble the unit and test again. If the noise persists, cautiously try the following:

    • Unplug the unit and remove the collection grid.

    • Use a cotton swab taped to a stick, cardboard from a dry-cleaner hanger, or a long tube of rolled newspaper to wipe down the ionizing wires inside. These thin wires run down the entire length of the unit. Use only gentle pressure to avoid breaking the wires.

    • Blow away dust using canned/compressed air and reassemble the unit.

    This should be a "last-ditch" effort, since too much pressure could break the wires and cause the unit to become defective. If the wires break or the noise persists, call 1-800-344-5555 for further assistance.

We owe ionic pro turbo air pur. ever since we cleaned it first time, it's making this static noice and it get really loud at times that it makes hard to sleep. What can we do?

Water or debris in the collection blades or wires can cause a snapping or arcing noise. Water should have dried after a day or so. Look for a hair or lint that is between the blades and wires. Ionic also suggests that the noise may be from misalignment of the blades after cleaning. They suggest removing and replacing the blades to reset the position.

Good luck from Detroit.

How do you clean the fan blades on a humudifier

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
I do this all the time and it works well for ALL types of aluminum fan blades on any appliance.
Use an older piece of Scotch-Brite with soap & water (So you do not scratch up the blades) then wipe it off with a damp rag then a dry rag. Just make sure you do NOT get water in the motor bearings. Place the blade your cleaning below the 3 or 9 o'clock positions to avoid introducing water into the motor bearings. Also do your best NOT to bend the blades in the process of cleaning.
Thanks for Choosing FixYa,

My Roomba says to clean the brushes when the brushes are already clean. Is there something to take apart to check? I have already taken the brushes out. I don't know the model number, I think it's the 500...

turn the unit upside down and remove the bottom pan should be 4 or 5 screws depending on the model.

next remove the 4 screws that hold the brush cartridge and pull the whole brush assembly out.

using a can of compressed air clean that whole assembly out there is a motor there so don't spray any cleaner on it. If there is surface grime you can use a clorox wipe or a damp cloth to get it all off.

this process should take about 10 minutes to do it properly use the straw that came with the compressed air to get in between the plastic shell and get all the dust trapped inside there.

make sure there is no dust trapped in the gears that drive the brushes.

put it all together and it should work.

Motor still runs--sounds like jet engine. do I need a new motor? or is there some sort of muffler that has malfunctioned? vacuum belongs to disabled mom---so trying to do work ourselves--cant afford much....

This little vac I think is actually made by Samsung. If it is ROARING and vibrating, either the bearings or suction fan is in bad shape. Remove the lid as if to inspect the belt and see if there is a visible intake opening with a plastic fan rotating inside. If so you have to inspect for damaged fan blade . A broken blade will cause the noise you describe and can be fixed on most vacs by carefully opening the fan housing and unscrewing,the fan from its threaded shaft. Then screwing on a new matching fan. Post back with more info and I`ll try to walk you thru the process

Hoover Steam Vac Dual V brushes won't turn

The brushes are driven with air pressure from vacuum motor. The switch merely opens a small door to allow air flow. usually there is a screen that is plugged that stops air flow which stops the brushes from turning. I too only used the appliance once and it broke. The round disc (turbine) had become jammed with no major obstruction. Cleaned anyway and put back together and it started to work again. I am so done with Hoover--no more of their products for me. To fix. the whole brush motor had to be removed and disassembled and cleaned. Not impressed at all!

Cleaning the separator

Try spraying something like WD40 around the shaft, then if you have to, use 2 small flat blades that will fit under the edge of the separator and keep working it until it pops loose. It is just crude and calcium from water that is keeping it on.

Does not pick up anything and makes weird noise

I had the same problem with very low suction and weird noises, the orange light kept coming on.
I always empty the cannister and clean out any hair from the roller. I would take the filter outside and clean it as good as possible. I don't know if I can post a picture on here or not, but I will try. It is unbelievable how much hair comes from long haired girls. Particulary my daughter. Back to the point...
I was cleaning out a drawer one day and came across an extra filter. I put the new filter on, and its like brand new again!
Man, did I feel like an idiot! Just needed a new filter.
