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.

SOURCE: Who repairs the sharper image ionic breeze GP

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.....

http://www.airpurifierrepair.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ID=34&ProductId=591


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.

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.

Tip

Sharper Imaage Ionizers


Ionized air purification systems have been proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air. These reports have been published by Consumer Reports as well as the EPA. Sharper Image filed a lawsuit against Consumer Reports and lost. They were ordered to pay Consumer Reports legal bills as well.

Sharper Image issued a recall on all Ionic Breeze Ionizers and filed for Chapter 11 at the same time.

Ionizers have been proven to create an ozone that is harmful to anyone with breathing problems.

Here is a link to the EPA report

Here is an article from CNN.com about The Sharp Image

Support for Ionic Breeze isn't possible since Shaper Image has recalled the product.

Your best bet to keep the air clean in your house is to use a hepa filtration system.

I have a sharper image ionic breeze professional series and paid a preety penny too. one of the wires inside rusted and broke, it lights up but no breeze is comming from it and the green light doesnt come...


If you're referring to one of the ionizer wires (wire that has beads on it to clean the wires) then unfortunately, I'm afraid the unit can't be repaired. As Sharper Image has no authorized repair centers or replacement parts. If you're referring to wiring in the base of the machine, then a repair could be affected by either cleaning off the wire ends and reattaching them with a small piece of wire or soldering the broken wire back to the unit itself. Sadly, many of us (myself included) spent a lot of money on these units and the only place I've found parts is a website called http://breezerepair.com/parts.html (not an authorized repair center) but of the parts they have carry, they don't have the wire you referred to. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I have the Ionic breeze Professional Series GP. It wont turn on...like its getting no power, but it is plugged in. It has no lights nothing!


Ionic Breeze is no longer being supported by Sharper Image. They did have a recall program on the product but I believe it has been discontinued.

The product was proven not to clean the air by Consumer Reports as well as EPA studies. Sharper Image tried to sue but lost.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is reviewing all ionizers and will make a decision by the end of the year. Due to health issues with using the machines themselves, these machines may disappear for good.

Ionic Breeze GP Sharper Image


Sharper Image ionizers are no longer being serviced. What got them into trouble in the first place was the fact that they were not cleaning the air and that the air they were filtering was hazardous some peoples health. This was based on data by Consumer Reports as well as the EPA. They went to court on it and they lost.

Sharper Image was offering a rebate to people who had purchased ionizers.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be making a decision on ionizers by the end of the year. It could be that they will no longer be sold in the US next year since they are ineffective and can cause health problems.

This is an industry that should have been regulated years ago just by EPA data alone. The idea that charging the air around you gets rid of stuff is a joke. In the copier industry that I work in we are told that it is bad since copiers create ozones in the same way.

Sharper image ailent air purifier front grill broke


There isn't one. The reason why Sharper Image went out of business is because the Ionic Breeze was proven to be ineffective product and harmful to use in some cases based on Consumer Reports data as well as data from the EPA. They sued Consumer Reports, lost the case, and had to pay all the legal bills.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to making decision on all ionizers by the end of the year. It's quite possible that no one will be selling them anymore.

There is thread I left in the Ionic Breeze section about the EPA data on ionizers and the harmful effects of using them as well as a link about what happen to Sharper Image.

This product should have been regulated a long time ago. Orek and few others are going to be pulling the plug on them real soon.
