Question about Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP SI730 Air Purifier
The lights on the sharper image bionic breeze continually blink
What is happening is this: the main electrical component is overheating and forcing the machine to turn off. When it cools, the machine turns back on. Yes, that is actually what is causing the blinking.
There is no solution for this as the main electrical component (a high voltage capacitor in this case) has failed due to stress. In my case, the machine worked for 2 months before failing. The only real solution is to have the unit serviced. However, as there is no service centers, we are all out of luck.
I believe this could be a class action law suit against sharper image for selling units built with components it knew would fail after a short period of time. They had hundreds of reports with this same failure and they knew the cause. Pressing the "boost" button too much causes extreme stress on the capacitor and shortens its life drastically. This capacitor is what provides the power to the ionizing wires.

What is the solution. one person sugested it was a capacitor failure. if so, which one and can it be replaced with a heavier duty unit?

We are all pretty much SOL, as my husband asked the very sweet but completely unhelpful man at the store who said if we clean it and it still doesn't work there is nothing we can do. They really have no incentive at this point to keep their customers happy (not that they ever really did in the first place).

I have a blue flashing light as well, only on the "low, med. and high" nobe. Regardless of how many times I take it a part and clean it, it continues to wink at me. Please help before I wink back and smash it.
