It keeps making a static sound. and it lights up with the sound because there is a small shock that happens ever 10 seconds in the back above the filter

That happens when the electrostatic grid needs to be cleaned. There should be instruction for cleaning the electrostatic grid in the owner's manual.

CLEANING PREFILTER(S), CELL(S) AND POSTFILTER(S) CAUTION Sharp edges. Can cause personal injury. Carefully handle cell(s) or wear protective gloves to avoid cuts from sharp metal edges. Setting a regular cleaning schedule To ensure optimum performance from the air cleaner, the prefilter(s) and cell(s) must be cleaned regularly- twice a year with normal use or more frequently with heavy use. Use the wash reminder schedule below to help establish and maintain a regular cleaning schedule. Mount the wash reminder schedule in a convenient location. NOTE: You may let the heating or air conditioning system operate normally while the cell(s) are being washed. Simply turn off the air cleaner switch. Cleaning your Prefilter 1. The quickest and easiest way to clean your prefilter is to use the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner to vacuum the lint off the dirty side of the prefilter. Greasy dirt may require soaking the prefilter in a tub or rinsing with the garden hose. Do not wash the prefilter in the dishwasher or car wash 2. The prefilter should be cleaned every 6 months or more frequently with heavy use. This will keep the prefilter clean of air choking lint that can make your system work harder. Vacuum the prefilter with a brush attachment, rinse it with a hose, or soak it in a tub. Do not wash the prefilter(s) in the dishwasher or car wash. Cleaning your Cells 1. A quick cleaning of the cells can be done by simply wiping down the ionizer wires with a damp cloth. This will help boost the efficiency of the air cleaner between full cleaning cycles. Ths quick clean can be done every time the prefilters are cleaned. 2. A full cleaning of the cells will return the air cleaner to its peak efficiency. An easy way to wash the cells is in a tub of hot, soapy water. Just soak the cells until the water cools, agitate and rinse. For details on cleaning cells, see below for Washing the cell(s) in a tub or Washing the cell(s) in your automatic dishwasher. 3. Because the efficiency of the air cleaner remains high even as it loads up with dirt, a full cleaning of the cells can be put off for yearly maintenance and a quick cleaning can be done more often. Those wishing to renew to peak efficiency or with heavier use may want to wash more frequently. Replacing your Postfilter 1. The postfilter is an optional filter that boosts the efficiency of the air cleaner. Do not wash the postfilter because that will neutralize the factory applied charge. 2. The postfilter should be replaced every six months to ensure peak performance.

The metal contactors and the wire spade connectors get pretty corroded and can cause continuity problems . I have had to replace those spade connectors and clean the metal contactors with emry sand cloth. Another trick is to soak the plate in ammonia to reduce the corrosion present on the grids

I have si 637 quadra. cleaning the unit both little thin plates at the end of filter fell off. the unit works. how important is repair this ?

If you're talking about those little plastic tabs at the bottom, they aren't important. Their job is to wipe the ionizing wires when you take the grid out or replace it.

"Cleaning overdue" red blinking light after cleaning was done

Check that there are no fine pieces of lint that are bridging the plates or the ionizing wires, to ground.

Check the contact points of the collector cell and inside the unit.

The light is caused by a shorted collector cell and associated components.

How do I clean my EcoQuest Breeze?

The purifier should be cleaned about once a month and you should do the following:
  1. Unplug the Breeze before cleaning.
  2. Wipe the Breeze with a soft cloth dampened with water, vacuum the front grill to remove any lint buildup.
  3. Cleaning the rear lint screen - You can either vacuum the filter or you can wash in hot water. Allow to dry before reinstalling the lint screen. Do not use soap, it will damage the carbon material in the lint screen.
  4. Remove the purifier plate from the purifier and soak in 1 part amonia and 1 part water solution for 10-20 minutes. Gently scrub the metal grid on the plate with a toothbrush and rinse with water. Clean the metal contacts with the same solution. Allow the plate to dry overnight or use a hair dryer to dry throughly.

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!

Cleaning the grid

You clean the cell by soaking it in warm soapy water in the kitchen sink: "
soak the Electronic Collector Cell in warm
water in a kitchen sink or bathtub. Mild dish detergent (powder
or liquid) may be added to the water to help break down the
dirt on the Collector Cell. The Collector Cell should be allowed
to soak for two to three hours."
