Question about Sharper Image Ionic Breeze 3.0 Air Purifier
I found that a good cleaning inside the unit stop's it from making noise.
My Mylar tabs broke off two years ago and that never made my IB Quadra make sounds.
You have to clean the posts where the two wires run inside the unit, top and bottom.
Also, clean the wire itself.
I used 1500 grit sand paper.
Think about it, why are there two beads inside on the wires?
They are there to clean each wire when you turn the unit upside down.
Any pointed object on the wire's will cause it to arc and flow to the plates.
Also, the wires do develop an oxide layer on itself as well.
Last, inside there is a pointed part on the bottom that sticks up.
Make sure that this point is super clean.
It worked for me.
NOTE: be careful when cleaning the inside, there still is voltage in the circuits.
Trust me, I got Zapped.
Work with One Hand Only When Touching The Circuit Board, Wires and Such.
DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
I will not be responsible for injury or death.
If you do not know what you are doing than get someone else to fix this for you.

Usually an indication of moisture in unit.
When I have this problem and I have had it in one unit or another,
I have 4. I clean mine with a slightly damp paper towel, and let it dry overnight out of the unit. you are also suppose to tip the unit over 3 times, upside down and upright everytime you clean it. I clean mine every 8 days. I have no pets or smokers either when I clean one I do all 4 units. Don't put into dishwasher it can melt bottom of dust catcher and not much luck since they went out of business finding replacment parts. good luck.

I had the same problem and found that the mylar on the tabs at the bottom of the plate assembly was damaged (torn). I was able to repair the part myself using mylar tape. This solved the sizzle problem. I
