Hi.....
u wud have to take a pair of needle-nose pliers and rip out the metal blade at the bottom where the spark is occurring and fold it back against itself so that it is no longer "seated" into the bottom of the unit where the sparking is occurring

take care to bend the parts back in line with the blade so that lined up and could be removed and replaced into the unit without scraping anything. When u put it back in, there ll be one last "spark" or probably a couple...... and after that i shud work just fine...... 
thank youhave a nice day good luck

Need replacement grids for Sharper Image Model S1637 since clips at bottom have broken off of grid.


Replacement grids have been posted to ebay. You can replace the complete unit for $45 on ebay so that would probably be a better solution. The last grid I purchased on ebay for similar was around $20.

Red light stays on continually.


Same problem : after cleaning thoroughly inside by removing the Front & Rear Plastic grid and the stainless blades, I also cleaned the 2 wires (very softly and carrefully, not to break them), but the Red light goes on after only few minutes :

Here is my last Solution :
1 - Turn on (Low position) although the Red ligt is on
2 - Release the Rear plastic Grid (or Front plastic grid, or both of them) : That stop the unit automatically
3 - Replace it and make sur it's well locked : the unit turns on automatically.

After that, my unit works well, no mor Red light.

But my husband will see if he can by pass the Cleaning detector, so we will not have this stupid Red light on anymore !

Good luck.

My Sharper Image ionizer after I cleaned the grid now makes popping noises and then the red light that says drying grid comes on most of the time. Sometimes the light that says attention required comes...


You are probably aware that the ionizer uses a very high voltage (at very low current) to function. If you have used a cleaner of some kind on it, you could have made the grid sensitive to moisture.
I would remove the grid again and wash it thoroughly in distilled water to remove any residue that stayed behind, then dry it in warm air before reinstalling it.

Red light stays on


I had the same problem: Had cleaned it inside, taking off both grids, washing wire, etc. Still the red light blinking would come back on after a few minutes. So here's what I did next:

Take off the grids on both sides. Make sure the grids are clean with water and paper towels (lots of black) On the unit itself, wipe out the metal sides and all the plastic. Then, here's the KEY,
get out your computer cleaning canned AIR and blow it into the open unit and blow the air on both of the grids too. I first used a hairdryer to blow it out, but the canned air is much stronger and I got all kinds of little black particles out with it.

Put it up and down 3 times, plugged it back in and WALAA! The unit is back to working perfectly and no red light has come on again!

I'm sure this will work for everyone if you just get the canned air and blow out the unit and the grids too even though you've cleaned them!

Red Cleaning Light won't turn off


After cleaning the unit, replace the grid into the unit. Hold upside down for at least 30 seconds to reset.

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.
