Question about Brookstone Pure-Ion (506840) Air Purifier

2 Answers

Clicking is likely sparking/arcing rather than something mechanic

I have a similar issue, but the clicking is absolutely sparking (I can see it through the vent opening in the top). The filers have been vacuumed, washed, dried (no doubt they are dry), and the problem persist. It suns for a while, sparking starts almost immediately, finally shuts down.

Sparking is what it does; Google the words ionizer purifier sparking and you will be let to explanations on how they use sparking to clean. Honeywell has been using that Technology for decades. Don't worry sparking in the unit is OK

I have same issue. I understand the "sparking" is ok, but my unit doesnt "spark". The fans run, and the unit makes two different clicking noises; one after the next (clicks are apprx 2 seconds apart and it happens every minute and a half or so). It no longer collects dust frim the air, and it no longer puts out the clean "ionic" air smell.

did you ever figure out the clicking noise problem?
mine stared doing the same darn thing after I whashed the filters and inserted them into the units, I used the builted in drying setting, and thats when the problem started. I know you are not supposed to run the unit with a wet filter, thats why I put it on the dry mode first. I think I am just going to return them back to Brookstone.

Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both electronic cells. Make sure that there is no hair, dirt, sand or any debris on the bottom inside the Electronic air cleaner. If there is, remove what you can by hand. If a lot of debris is left in bottom of the Air Cleaner, you may want to use a vacuum attachment to see if you can vacuum up what you can.

Spark inside the filter


It's probably arcing due to a buildup of oxidized particles from the air and the high voltage field wires. Spraying electrical contact cleaner in the vicinity of the spark/arc may clean it -- make sure the unit is not plugged in when you do this and that you give it plenty of time to dry before plugging it back in (couple of hours). If cleaing doesn't help, there's not much you can do -- the wire will eventually burn through and break. Then it's back to Oreck or to the landfill.

Crackling sound


You need to look inside (through the front grill) with the lights turned off, and try to spot the sparking/arcing high-voltage - - what you're likely hearing is a spark where high-voltage is grounding-out due to a fault in the wire insulation or some other insulating structure.

Once you isolate where in the machine it's arcing, you may be able to determine where it is and whether or not it's within your skills to fix it. If it's an XL-15 as indicated by this category, it's no longer in warranty (no longer even supported by the manufacturer, for that matter, so it will be up to you to determine how much you want to work with high-voltage electricity.

If you can find the spark, you might be able to report back here for more detailed advice. Hope this helps.

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.

F50E New Power Supply Arcing


check the fins on both cells for even spacing on the fins. If the fins are bent a little, this will cause your arcing.

Pull both cells out and reinsert them one at a time. Keep the cell all the way to the front or all the way to the back so it makes contact with the power supply.

The cell that has bent fins will continue arcing. Good luck.

Clicking noise


I had the same problem.

We could put one cell in and it worked with out clicking. Putting the second one in solo however, it was clicking.

I looked closely at the second cell and discovered that two of the vanes on the side with the wires were bent at about 20 degrees off. Adjusting this and reinserting reduced the clicking but not completely. I pulled the cell and focused on the same two vanes and discover one was also bent in, gently pulled it back and no more clicking!

My wife had cleaned the filters and my 6 yr old and 4 year old had to help. I wonder how they got bent?!

We have had the cleaner for about 6 yrs and no problems until this last cleaning.

Be very careful in adjusting the cells. Aluminum does not like being bent and weakens each time it is moved, like pulling a tab off a beer can (of course the cells are made from much thicker and higher grade aluminum)!
