The company went under and doesn't service them anymore. It's possible you could find a local repair place that might be able to do something, but there is no authorized or trained service station, and you can't get parts.

You might be able to pick up spare parts if you scour eBay long enough.

Good luck!

The string inside my ionic breeeze quadra is broken. Is it possible to fix it


Not so fast with the screwing part. Go to a music store, buy the G string wire(008)gauge- at least 41 inches long- for a guitar.
If you have a digital camera make a video/pics history of your dis-assembly steps.
Remove the ozone eliminator-by pulling it off the tower.
Start with the base 4 screws, followed by the 2 collar screws at the base.
NOTICE that there is a space between the two halves at the bottom. I paid NO attention to this space-boy did I ever try to snugly close that one before I looked at another one to see that this separation is there for a reason.
Next: remove the "TINY"12 screws - 6 on the front/back side of the units ribs-look for these.
Take pics of each step. You will be happy you did this.
Store all of these diff. screws in separate jars.
Open the unit now like a wallet. Notice that the sloped top control button/light module can now be removed. See those 2 black square plastic covers-they hide a spring and an upside down W shaped wire holder. The broken wire can now be removed. If you are lucky, you may be able to to twist your new wire-after pushing it through the cleaning bead -with the one going down to the bottom module. Mine was too brittle and broke apart as soon as I touched it.
Remember: The 2 wires you see are just one 41 inch long 008 gauge guitar string.
They thread through a signal contact bracket at the bottom of the unit that is activated by the breaking of the wire to turn the unit OFF. Getting to this bracket is somewhat difficult and requires patience. Take a lot of pics to be able to reassemble the S 1637. I pulled the 41 inch long string under this signal bracket, evened off the ends, moved the top module down 2 inches and twisted the ends around the W shaped bracket that compresses the spring.
Honestly, I had to adjust the spring two times because I left off the cleaning bead. Now just reverse the steps and you got your unit working. The new string seems to push a lot more air.
Before you replace all of the screws, fold the unit together, insert the blades , put 2 sets of veggy rubber bands around the top and bottom and plug in/turn it on. Mine works now better than new. Did I mention that I had to do 2. The second was done in 2 hours.
Good luck.

I own an Ionic Breeze Quadra unit. It has been working fine and I really like it because it removes bad odors from the house. Mine has just started making a hissing noise. Any suggestions? Thanks


hi,
Sparking, popping, hissing or crackling sounds coming from your Ionic Breeze air cleaner are all signals that it's time to clean your machine. Once you've cleaned the collection grids inside the Quadra, the disruptive sounds will disappear


how to clean

Turn off and unplug your Ionic Breeze Quadra.Grasp the horizontal handle on top of the air cleaning grids--this is in the very center top of your Ionic Breeze Quadra--and pull the grids straight up out of the casingWipe the metal grids down, inside and out along the entire length, with a clean damp cloth. You may need to use more than one cloth if the grids are very dirty.Go back over the grids with a clean dry cloth to remove any water and remaining dirtPut the grids aside on a clean, dry surface and grasp the body of the main Ionic Breeze casing unit in both hands.Flip the casing unit upside down, then right side up, five or six times. You should hear a small bead sliding back and forth as you do this. The bead is cleaning interior elements concealed in the casing; if you don't hear it, your unit may be in need of repair.Place the casing unit back on its base, orient the grids so that the handle slopes in the same direction as the top of the air purifier, then carefully slide them back down into the machine.

I have an Ionic Breese Quarda that just stopped working all of a sudden. Is there someone who can walk me through some basic fixes? Company out of business I'm told.


The high-voltage grid wire(s) most likely broke -- unfortunately, there is no good remedy for this -- I have repaired a half dozen of these units by replacing the grid wires with titanium wire. This is a very time-consuming, complicated, nerve-wracking repair -- not recommended. Even if the reapair is done, the unit will likely fail again, soon.

When my reapired units failed, I got units off E-Bay -- they didn't last very long either.

I'm now in the market for a more rugged ozone-generating air purifier.

Need replacement grids for Sharper Image Model S1637 since clips at bottom have broken off of grid.


Replacement grids have been posted to ebay. You can replace the complete unit for $45 on ebay so that would probably be a better solution. The last grid I purchased on ebay for similar was around $20.

One of my tabs broke today after 5 years.  It looks like the tab piece just cleans the wire when the element is removed.  Seems like it does the same thing as the little beads that slide along the wire when you turn it upside down.  So I'm going to just use it without the tabs.

Ionic breeze gp s1730


Ionic breeze gp s1730 I had the same issue. There are two switches in this unit. One closes if the back cover is on, the other closes when the removeable grid is in. My problem was with the later. Mine had corroded wire ends where it is soldered to the small circuit board where the switch is attached to. It also had a bad switch that did not close the circuit and I suspect internal corrosion as well.

Unplug the unit and remove the grid.

Remove the 4 small phillps screws from the front grill, remove front grill.

Remove 2 selector whells from top, remove four screws.

Test the switch function with ohm meter

Unit seems stuck in the "drying grid" mode


I had the same problem with my GP. It has worked great for four years and only recently seemed to get stuck in this drying cycle. I cleaned the grid many times, cleaned the wires, cleaned the whole unit as much as I could to no avail. The trick: You need to clean the two metal prongs and surrounding area that insert into the bottom of the grid, when you inserrt the grid. they are sharp like nails, so take care. Use an alcohol based cleaners and clean the prong and around each base. This fixed the problem for me and she's back up and running well.
