I posted a solution to a similar problem I had with my Ionic Breeze GP. I was able to replace a bad switch and get the unit working again. Please check the following Fixya article for details on my fix:

Oh there are a lot of known issues! I used to work for sharper image and I believed in this items very much so until mine broke. However after a year I figured out how to fix it. Take the big square collection grid out and the back screen off. Now get you a thick rag and be very careful because there are several tiny wires going up and down. Smaller than dental floss, you need to be very careful because you can either brake them or slice your finger wide open( Under any circumstances I can not be held liable for the information I am giving you try this at your own risk). Now with the towel very gently go up and down each wire like you are polishing a brass pole(once again these wires are thin and can break or cut you). Do this from the back side of the unit and from the inside where the collection grid that you took out sits. Take your time and be thorough, and presto your 400 dollar air cleaner is working again.

This is a repair that someone I know didafter reading a post on the net.....regarding Quadra repairs....and here is a link for repairs....its all one link....so type it into your browser or paste it.....
Remove the grid assembly.
Remove the 4 screws holding the top on.
Gently remove the top as there are wires connected to it.
Once removed, find the microswitch assembly on the side. There will be 2 green wires going to this assy board (PCB).
Examine the bottom of this board. On both my units, the PCB wascorroded badly on the trace that runs from the center lead to the wireconnection. This will cause the microswitch to quit working.
What I did was soldered a wire from the center contact of themicroswitch (center piece coming through the board. There should be alarge solder pool) to the wire connection at the edge of the board.This just 'goes around' the corroded PCB trace.
Worked fantastic on both ionic breezes and took about 5 minutes for thesecond one. The first one took over 2 hours just to find the problem.
I hope this helps.....good luck...thanks for rating my effort....the Fang.

You can purchase a bulb for the GP on ebay for under $11, which is really a
good price considering what you would have paid from Sharper Image.
Installation is easy, you just pull up on the tab on the bottom of the filter
and pull up. When you are looking at the bulb, turn it 1/4 turn, (2
clicks) and pull it out. That is all there is to it. Item Number: 220444965077
