I just bought the same model and also have the smell. My previous one did not so I returned the first unit and the second units smells the same. I called Sears Customer Support and they told me that it is probably due to the factory smoke test they do on each unit. He said let it run for a few days and it should dissapate. I went a step further and am trying a new filter and if this works he said call the store and they will get me a new filter.

not likely the electrostatic air cleaners are discontinued for the most part because the really didnt do all they claimed. you can achieve much better air quality from a standard media air filter with a merv rating of 10 or better.

Ammonia is a very strong agent & reacts with certain metallic compounds. No wonder the cleaning cell turned black. Educated guess, is you've ruined it. Cleaning in vinegar & hot water alone shouldn't have affected it like this. I would presume vinegar & ammonia mixed together would make a severe chemical reaction quite possibly harmful to you. I'm surprised you were able to put these 2 things together.


Vinegar & hot water by itself is an envirofriendly method of cleaning, deodorizing & disinfecting items. It's safe, as Vinegar is made from potato's...it's bio-degradable & shouldn't harm any fabric, wood, glass or metal materials. It doesn't seem to work very well on plastic. It's great for fabrics. Laundering with vinegar will kill mold, must, mildew & helps reduce allergens in fabrics.

Ionic breeze wire


I tried the guitar strings, they burned out quickly. The wires that came in the unit are not steel, they are not affected by a magnet. We suspect they may be tungsten or some other type of non ferrous wire. Until we find the right wire, we cannot repair them to last. Any assistance in locating the correct type of wire for use in ionizing air cleaners would be appreciated.

Please read also this article.

Before replacing any part I suggest to read the articles. Ozone related concerns have caused the recall of other similar devices.

The Honeywell electronic air cleaner constantly "snaps" even though it is clean. I have inspected the wires and fins, clean and spaced properly. Any suggestions?


It is normal to hear occasional snapping from your Electronic Air Cleaner. This occurs when larger particles are caught by the ionizer wires. Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both the cell and check clean the bottom portion by using a vacuum cleaner attachment. If the snapping continues with the cells remove contact your contractor.

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.
