When the clean coils message came on, we removed the top grid and vaccuumed the coils and cleaned the grid. We replaced it and screwed it back into place. We have done this before successfully. This time after we did this, the vacuum coils AND the service message comes on. Any idea what we need to do?

Re: clean coils and service message
Not familiar with your unit, but, are there coils under the unit? Where is the compressor and is there a fan running, moving air under the unit? There may be a sensor at either place that needs wiped off or is covered with dust so as not to be able to sense air movement. Let me know and I will try to help you further....

pull the unit forward almost taking it out of the wall, on top and to the sides or under there should be some screws to take off the plastic grid. before you do that please make sure there is no power to the unit.
AT THE BOTTOM FRONT OF THE FRIDGE, UNDER DOOR, REMOVE VENT COVER. JUST SNAPS IN PLACE. USE A SHOP VAC OR VACCUUM CLEANER WITH A SMAL ENOUGH HOSE TO INSERT THROUGH THE BOTTOM OF FRIDGE. CLEAN COIL AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE FROM ALL DUST AND DEBRIS. DO NOT USE ANYTHING POINTED OR SHARP BECAUSE COIL CAN BE PUNCTURED OR DAMAGED. ONCE COIL IS CLEANED YOUR FRIDGE WILL START GETTING COLD AGAIN!!!!
Cleaned the filter screen or the coils? There are two coils. The evaporator coil and the condensor. There is the "filter screen" in which you can clean which is located in the back top portion of the panel that is easily accessible. However to clean the coils you need to remove ALL the back screws from the back cover and remove the entire back panel. There you will see both coils. From your statement it sounds like there isn't sufficient airflow over your coils and the freon cannot release its cooling effect into the hot air thus it tends to ice up on the coils. You need to wash out all the lint dust from both coils. You can do this with with air conditioning coil cleaner or for starters use a stiff paint brush and vaccuum. Clean as much debris off as you can, then run the unit. It should last longer than your previous five minutes. If it doesn't work then your in trouble. There is a metering device called a TXV or expansion valve that may have failed causing the freon not to flow freely thoughout your system. However it is a rare occassion that it fails so it should be that the coils are dirty. GOOD LUCK
You need to break down and clean this filter one time each year but twice wont hurt at all.
First get a five gallon bucket for garbage. Then mark the shell of the filter and the band clamp so you can line them up later. Use a magic marker for this.
Now undo the clamp on the tank and remove. then open the air bleed to drain the tank. If you can't remove the top turn the pump on for a second or two to pop the top.
Remove build up of DE on the top of the grid assembly and discard. You will find two bolts comeing up through the plastic manifold. Remove these and clean. Now grip the manifold and with a rocking motion back and forth gently pull up. When this comes free clean and set aside. Gently seperate the grids and remove DE packed between them and discard. Remove grids and lower rack and hose off.
With the valve in BW position hose down the inside the tank. Inspect the "O" rings and replace as nessary.
Now take the manifold and turn up side down on the bucket. Take the grids and insert into the holes in the manifold being sure the small grid is in line with the space for the stand pipe. Now replace the lower rack and gently work into place. DO NOT FORCE THIS.
Tip to one side while holding together and start nuts on through bolts. Rite up the assembly and tighten these nuts.
Grease the stand pipe "O" ring and set the assembly back in place.
Replace the top and clamp lineing up the marks you made when starting. Evenly tighten the clamp.
Reset BW valve to filter and recharge.
You may want to hire someone to do this the first time and watch them before trying to do it yourself. Good luck.
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.
What did you use to clean the grid? It must be U-line cleaner. I seen people use other cleaners just to find the same results. If the ice isnt ejecting then you can check the hotgas coil. It should be 360 ohms. If its open or week I see this from time to time. If its neither then you need a service tech to repair the sealed system . Replace the hotgas valve.
I was getting the clean the corona wire problem message even after repeated cleanings. Before this problem occured the toner light was flashing warning of low toner. When I got the clean the wire pop up the toner light was on all the time indicating the toner was depleated. So, I thought I would try replacing the toner cartridge and see what happened. I opened the new toner box and noticed on the foil packege specific instructions to clean the corona wire when installing the new toner. I installed the new toner and cleaned the wire one more time. I then reinstalled the drum and toner assembly into the printer and the clean the corona wire message did not come up again. The printer now works fine.
