I bought the big Idyllis -awesome;however, I purchased a second and it was possessed - makes woooo noises. exchanged it. Same thing. Smaller unit -loud. Would like another large with the wooooooo.

I used to use a damp papertowel and then an antiseptic wipe or spray a tiny bit of windex on a second paper towels and wipe each bar individually lts just a pain and a bit scary. this way it should be left to dry for hours. the dust is connecting the ionic filter the metallic bars that look like the bottom of a DVD are statically connecting creating the pop noise a shaking or rattling noise means it probably wet.
I got a trick use a microfiber towel to wipe the majority of the filters filmy residue. then grab a screen cleaner used for a tablet I pod or a cell phone. once the icky sticky collection on the ionic filters metallic bars. the cell screen cleaner. should make all the metallic parts oil and dust free. and they can be used over and over again. a microfiber towel just needs to be rinsed by hand afterwards if it's dirty it's fine it's just used so that there's no papertowel remnance. a glasses lense cleaner should just get the oils off afterwards cause that will make it so it won't attract dust quicker which is how it shakes wen wet. Basically tiny dampness attracts dust creating a clumping which makes it unbalanced so then the shaking or rattling. u gotta start over again. those are two ways.
now afterward take a deep breath plug it in hold the button down for 3 to 5 seconds. This should reset the switch to normal and then press it again to turn it on. it should only have a tiny breese. My dad would say that it's broken but it's for allergens and free flowing dust. So have it a foot off the ground and usually near a light switch cause they never have furniture there also all switches are out of the way cause usually the first thing you need to see is light which is why ur hand reaches not ur feet as if u would kick first to find a couch. if you have it by the couch or chair it my seem plesent till it falls. all purifiers r the same an ion charge stimulates low electricity attracting fibers or dust as a balloon gathering static electricity. the best purifiers to have are the water filtering purifiers no problems there just change the water once a week. well I hope you got some knowledge of helping you understand how and why they do as they do. most people end up giving them away.

Reset engine indicator light

1. With the Car Off, Press and hold down the Odometer Trip Reset Button. 2. While still pressing the Trip Reset Button, Turn the Ignition Key half way on where all your oil, check engine lights etc.. turn on. Don't turn it as far as you would to normally start the car. Wait a few seconds and the Check engine light will turn off. 3. Turn the key back to the Off position and you're done.

Sounds like the fan is making a loud noise

Probably all you need to do is oil the shaft. Remove the front grid, firmly but carefully pull off the fan blades, and use a thin household oil to penetrate down the shaft. Turn the shaft and repeat the turning until it loosens up. If that doesn't solve the problem, get in touch with us at We've been with the company 20+ years.

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.

i went to my mechcanic the same day my engine started to make the same loud noise that you are talking about. he said that it was the flex pipe. just this morning (5:30am 8/3/09) i went to dunkin donuts for my morning coffee and while waiting in line, my car just stopped running. like you said, when you take your foot off the gas and press the break, the car stops. no doubt about it, it is the flex pipe. im sure by now you got your car fixed but i thought that i'd share my car troubles with you :)

Hi jackkikay,

A faint buzzing sound is normal - - that's the high-voltage plasma discharge simulating lightning in a thunderstorm. If the room is dark you should be able to see a faint bluish-purple glow of the metal grid on the plate(s) inside. This should somewhat louder as you increase the setting.

It should not really be so loud that is stands out in the background of normal noises (refrigerator running for example). If the buzz is loud - - like something is shorting-out internally (loud crackling sound), that would signal a different problem - - I'd need more details about what you're observing. Approximate purchase day, specific model, number of plates, general condition of the interior would all be helpful if you deem the buzz to be too loud for normal operation.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using,

Making sizzling noise

Unfortunately Sharper Image has discontinued support on the product line.  There was a recall going on with the product but since the company is chapter 11 right now, I don't think it is being honored right now.  
What happened was Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers, Sharper Image received a bad score and filed a lawsuit.  They lost the suit and had to pay all legal bills. 
EPA has reported that using ionizers in a house or business may be harmful to your health.  You can read an article about it on their website.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to release a final report on all ionizers by the end of the year.  Their decision may discontinue all sales of any ionizers in the United States.  This industry should have been regulated years ago just by the EPA data alone and for some reason it has been ignored.

One hissing one shut down

I have two Quadras not sure about the GPS. The only way to clean them properly is to complete the folowing steps. This will eliminate the hissing noises and intermittent shutdowns. Clean the blade unit as normal and leave it out of the unit. Unplug the unit, remove the four phillip screws on the top of the unit where the collector grid slides down. Next remove the four screws holding on to the base of the unit. After this you will see two additional screws also by the base that need to be removed. Look carefully between the grills of the unit and you will see about 12 to fifteen tiny screws that hold the grill together. After these are removed take off the UL label and seprate the grill. You may have to gently pull up on the top where the power switch is located. I have found if you use a lightly dampened scotch brite pad to carefully clean the two wires works best. Clean the wires and pins at the bottom and make sure all is well. Use a microfiber or lint free cloth to gently wipe everthing down and make sure the unit is dry. Put it back together and put the UL sticker back on.
