Wont turn on


does the lights come on but the motor does not turn, if it is this it can be the starter for the motor inside next to the motor is a started solenoid this starts the motor to run. when they start to fail you get a buzzing sound or a humming, eventually it just fails. also the motors are prone to fail after time, and they don't do replacements for this part

Heat pure 1500 shuts down and displays 90.


over heating its self, it could be a blocked and not getting the right air flow or the sensor for the heat control is on its way out. check the filter if this model has one remove all dust from the intake, check that the fan is working, if the motor has been making any buzzing or funny sounds this can be the problem too. buzzing is the starter motor humming or clicking the motor is failing.

No matter how much I clean the machine after it is turned on for 10 min or more it starts to buzz and make a static noise, any other suggestions?


The buzzing noise is not from dust in the air purifier, it's from the dust and pollutants in the air, it's now picking up. It should stop once the air is cleaned.

Buzzing sound


you need to turn it off and remove plates,put in kitchen sink and spray with windex and dry with paper towels, now clean the bottom of the three plates too.
before you reinstall the plates look down inside you will see three thin lines of metal,make sure there is no lint or dust on them,reinstall and let set for five min. to allow any windex that might still be wet then turn on low for a couple of min.then go to medium

We bought two Ionic Breeze's abt ten yrs ago and have always worked fine but now they "buzz" as they run. Not a steady buzz but every ten seconds or so. They are cleaned wkly and never had a problem bfor....


Hi, it sounds to me like a relay of some type buzzing? I would see if you can remove the control cover to excess all component's, after you unplug it 1st, and then plug them back in and try and locate this buzzing sound? Funny, both are doing it? They have lasted a decade, and you have kept them up. Let me know if you locate this noise, and we can go from there.
Good Luck,Sincerely,

I have the enviracaire f300e 1001 in a house i just bought. i cleaned the filters. whenever the furnace turns on a buzzing comes from the unit. is this normal? the thermostat also flashes "filter".


Sounds like the filter is damaged or has bent fins.Make sure all the fins are not touching eachother, or they will arch and keep buzzing and flashing.Also there is a wire on the incoming air side of the filter(between each fin) to precharge the particales entering the filter .make sure the wires are not broken.good luck--Nate

Ionic breeze quadra not functioning


I had the same problem and could not find an answer anywhere. So here's what I figured out. The small wires running from top to bottom just inside the cover are your problem. Not the metal grid with plates that you can remove. The buzzing sound you heard is the resistance one or more of the wires is causing. The resisitance tells the pc board that your grid must be wet and therefore the unit goes into drying mode. I replaced my small wires and my unit is working better than ever. The wire is .005 diameter( important so that you keep the same resistance flowing to the pc board) and can be purchased at any good suppy house. I have since repaired another unit with an even simplier fix. I took the unit into a dark room and then turned it on. Watching the grid I could see the wire arching that was causing the resistance. Unplugged the unit, turned it over and with a flat head screw driver pushed the wire off its base connedtion. Turned the unit right side up and removed the wire from its top support. The unit works fine without the troubled wire. Hope this helps.

Ionic Pro makes weird buzzing noise


I found that the buzzing can be removed by blowing out the unit, cleaning the blades and taking a long cotton swab and alcohol to thoroughly clean the corona wire - carefully - don't break it. The wire should be clean enough that the slider/wiper runs smoothly up and down the wire after cleaning. If it drags or is rough to slide, you will still have noise no matter how many times you clean the blades. The wire gets a "crust" on it.

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 Fixya.com,

Jon
