SOURCE: ionic breeze 3.0 repair

My Ionic Breeze GP began losing power occasionally but I could shake it and get it to turn back on. It got worse and worse until it would not turn on anymore.

The problem on mine is the micro switch that detects whether the collector plates are inserted or not, so it is part of the safety mechanism. There is a about a one-inch cylindrical piece of plastic on the front of the collector plate handle. This cylinder goes through a hole and pushes on the micro switch (actually a plastic cover over the micro switch).

On mine, it appears that arcing inside the switch caused it to get hot, deforming the plastic a little bit and apparently ruining the inside of the switch.

The following URLs describe the switch, but I have not found a retailer that carries it:
http://www.dicgroup.com/pdf/SM/SM5-01N.pdf
http://www.dicgroup.com/e-pro01-sm.html

Another of the same model switch is used in the back of the unit to detect whether the rear cover is on (over the UV bulb).

If I cannot find a replacement, I am thinking of either bypassing the bad switch entirely or swapping the switch from the back. Either way would defeat a safety feature so it's probably not to be recommended, but I consider the sacrificing the switch for the back cover to be introducing only limited risk, so I might take that route if I have to.

There isn't one. The reason why Sharper Image went out of business is because the Ionic Breeze was proven to be ineffective product and harmful to use in some cases based on Consumer Reports data as well as data from the EPA. They sued Consumer Reports, lost the case, and had to pay all the legal bills.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to making decision on all ionizers by the end of the year. It's quite possible that no one will be selling them anymore.

There is thread I left in the Ionic Breeze section about the EPA data on ionizers and the harmful effects of using them as well as a link about what happen to Sharper Image.

This product should have been regulated a long time ago. Orek and few others are going to be pulling the plug on them real soon.

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.

Need to replace fan blade. doi just the other blade off or do i need a tool


You should be able to get the fan off w/ a small screwdriver & some needle nose pliers for the metal clamp that holds the fan onto the shaft. Look on Google for suppliers to get a new fan & clamp. It shouldn't be expensive.

Fresh air 2, blue light goes out, fan still works, reads


If the light goes out, it is time to replace the bulb AND the bulb starter. They need to be replaced every two years. Beyond that, they are an expensive night light. If you need to order one, call (336) 499-2505. Also ask for supplemental cleaning instructions since the original instructions are incomplete.

Just received a new air purifier, and was quite surprised to see big pieces of styrofoam in the fan/air output area.....at first we thought it must be packing materials. My question is: I thought that...


That is packing materials. It was placed there to protect the vent louvers on the front from breaking during shipping. Apparently, some of them chipped or broke and found their way into the louver section. Simply clean them out. Small pieces can be sucked out with a vacuum that has a hose and crevice tool attachment.

Dust caked up on wires and fan,how do you take it apart to clean it?


This question seems similar to another post from a while ago. http://www.fixya.com/support/t5074178-like_clean I just finished my Blue Air 500 for the same problem with loads of collected hair and dust around the fan. The manufacturer manual does not cover this type of cleaning and they do not want people to open the unit as it might void the warranty. It's actually simple you've done it but not obvious. There are 4 screws which you may not have seen on the top until you pop off the top grill. Remove those as they fasten the side curved panels, once the top screws are removed tug on the white curved pieces upwards and they should come off. Once these are off you should have full access to the interior to clean. Ours was utterly filthy and way past the warranty.

880 alpine air (2) on upper level one in kitchen and one in laundry room. Question: I clean the purifiers about once per month and the problem is that there is no clean air smell any longer. They are...


The transformer may be burned out. This supplies the power to the contact points which send current through the plates. You can try ordering new plates, just to see if yours are just plain worn out! You're doing the right thing, by using ammonia/water, but they aren't made to last forever! Call Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) at 800-989-2299. Use #16618 if you're no longer in touch with the registered distributor who sold you the machines. If you still detect no clean air amell, the machines need a part which the company no longer handles. And they no longer manufacture the 880 or Breeze, which was its upgrade. Customer service will explain your options.

Hi.

The filter will probably needs replacement. Ionic breeze purifier are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts are also not distributed anymore.

The cleaning overdue light is flashing I cleaned the filter what else do I need to do


Hi.

The filter must be replaced.

If the model is post 2007, to get parts or repair contact Ionic Breeze support. Here contact page.

If the model was manufactured before 2007, read below, in that case I suggest not proceeding with the repair.

I want to call attention on the fact that several of old Ionic Breeze models are not being manufactured anymore because of health concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts for old models that raised concerns are not distributed anymore.
I suggest contacting manufacturer, if parts are not available, then the purifier was among the ones related to health concer. In that case I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.
