Question about Brookstone Pure-Ion (506840) Air Purifier

1 Answer

Loud Clicking Noise

Mine does this too. And even worse, I never even got to use the unit!! I paid big bucks for it, and bought the floor model. Big mistake. I read somewhere online that someone else with the same issue figured out a solution. But instead of writing about it, he just wrote, "call me". But there was no phone number. UGH!!! I need help. Is Brookstone the actual manufacturer of this unit? Do I need to call them??

GL 11000 starts & runs fine but puts out 90v. Will occasionally jump to 110v but then returns to 90. Unit is for standby power & has about 1200 hrs.


Phillip, Plug something Big into it (shop heater), to put under load for a half hour, and then check it.

Where is the ionizer wire?


On the opposite half as the plates. Look for but don't touch the big insulator at the top. The wire run from it to the bottom of the machine. Older ones have a cleaning bead and you must turn the entire machine upside then right side up several times to clean it. Mine had a latch on the back top with a label, " pull up to clean if crackling". I pulled it up and observed a wiper sliding up the big wire inside. I did it up and down several times and that fixed mine.

Brookstone Pure Ion Pro clicking noise, ineffective. I understand the "sparking" is ok, but my unit doesnt "spark". The fans run, and the unit makes two different clicking noises; ...


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.

Ionic Breeze GP S1830 - makes a sizzeling noise


Funny you should post this when you did as I just finished reassembling my S1730.
Mine was making very loud noise, arcing violently, smoking slightly and would give a good shock when you touched the plastic covers(yes dirty plastic will conduct electric current).

1. Unplug the unit
2. Take the plastic covers off, front has four screws and back has snap at bottom, both slide up when loose.
3. Wash the plastic covers
4. take the light out and clean it with windex
5. Vacuum the inside, be careful of the two corona wires
6. Find the bead on each corona wire and while turning them slight so the edges scrapes the wire, move them back and forth to scrap the white power off the wires
7. scrape the cone shape plastic that the corona wires runs into, this build up is the primary culprit of the arcing which is the noise you hear. be careful of the corona wires again. I used an exacto knife and gently scraped it, sandpaper has been suggested elsewhere, once done scrapping, wipe down to clean any residue. The top cones are only part accessible, after cleaning mine the noise still persisted but acceptably lower than before. I think if you completely take apart the unit you can clean this cones better.
8. Reassembly is the same is opposite of disassembling.

Hopes this helps you.

Class action lawsuit


Not only that but even the EPA has said that ionizers are bad for filtering the air to begin with and that the report has been out there for several years.

Here it is from the EPA

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is going to make a report on all ionizers by the end of the year. It is possible that they will no longer be sold in the US forcing others such as Orcek into some financial trouble.
