My wife wanted me to take it apart to clean it properly. we have the quadra which all of you know that it's impossible to clean. Well, after cleaning it, I noticed a fuse which is permanently in place blown. How do I get parts to fix it myself.

You can replace the fuse by soldering a new one into place -- it's a standard fuse, just match the amp rating of old to new.

Chances are though, after you do this, it will blow again. So, there's a good chance the unit is kaput.

I have extensive experience with these units to the point of even replacing the high-voltage field wires (the two fine wires which run from top to bottom) with titanium wire. There is no real good way to keep these things running properly -- they're kinda like weed whackers -- inherently problematic.

Hi.

I don't know if you still use your ionic breeze.

About Ionic breeze purifier, I want to report that they are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts are also not distributed anymore.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

Ionic Breeze Health Concerns

Regards.

Ginko.

Ionic Breeze Midi Prof. Plus has red light on and won't work


When you cleaned everything did you also turn the whole unit upside down and gently shake to remove trapped dirt in the bottom of the unit. As for taking this unit apart to clean throughly there is no need. Just use some q-tips with 91% Isopropal alcohol not Rubbing alcohol to get to the small areas. Pay close attention to the small arrow shaped metal contact near the bottom of the unit. Make sure it is wiped clean and everything is completely dry. Plug unit back into power and the red button should turn green.

I have si 637 quadra. cleaning the unit both little thin plates at the end of filter fell off. the unit works. how important is repair this ?


If you're talking about those little plastic tabs at the bottom, they aren't important. Their job is to wipe the ionizing wires when you take the grid out or replace it.

Quadra will not turn on after cleaning


If, when you push the on button it sizzles for a sec and then shuts off (red clean light goes on), I have the same problem and haven't been able to fix it. However, others have had the same problem and have posted their solutions. The sizzling sound is caused by electrical arching between the plates and one or both of the two tungsten wires that are run parallel to the plates (if you turn off all the lights and wait for your eyes to adjust to the dark before turning on the Ionic Breeze, it's a pretty cool light show!) Here are things found by others to cause the arching and what they did to fix the problem:
  • --dirt, lint, or tiny hairs stuck somewhere (usually towards the top or bottom of the plates or wire, and maybe in the grid contact points). Clean it better. Using canned air can help blow out the problem.
  • --water droplets. Make certain there is no moisture anywhere when you put the grid (plates) back in. Using canned air can help dry hard to reach areas.
  • --burn marks or melted plastic. These indicates a short circuit. Says dnewcombe1: "There is a feeler bracket that guides the two rear thin wires while the cartridge is being inserted. This "feeler" can melt and become disarranged." You can't fix this issue.
  • --build up on the ionizing wires. Clean them. It's hard. I took mine apart and used steel wool.

Ionic breeze quadra s1857 Red light continues to blink needs cleaning even after cleaning. not filtering. help


Mine is a Pro-series Quadra. It needed better cleaning.

The front and rear plastic grill scome off (release catch at the bottom of each), allowing access to the central core. I cleaned it with a damp rag (let it dry before you turn it back on). Be very careful of the two wires running the length of the unit -- if you break these it will not work. I did, however, gently clean them.

When I restarted it there was an unusual smell for a few minutes, but all is working well again.

Ionic breeze quadra s 1837


I had a problem with my Ionic Breeze Quadra. Green light would only blink for a second then the red light stayed on. I cleaned unit very good but problem came right back. I blew out the breeze with an air compressor. Not much came out, but now I am green and back in action. I used about 75 psi to clean out.
