The fine wire that runs parallel broke when it was being cleaned. It looks like it would be fairly simple to restring but what kind of wire would I need to restring the unit?

I HAVE 2 IONIC BREEZE QUADRA. FIRST HAD PROBLEM WITH 1, NOW THE SECOND ONE HAS SAME PROBLEM. HAVE CLEANED AND DRIED THOROUGHLY THE BARS AND FILTER, AND CLEANED REST OF WIRES WITH BRUSH. WHEN I TURN ON I...


If none of the hi voltage grid wires have broken then check to be sure grid wires are truly cleaned.
If not cleaned in a while like every 2 weeks they will have carbon build on them. And from my experiences with cleaning them is the build looks similar to the color of the wire. Try some qtips dipped in alcohol or cotton balls. The build comes off like flaking metal. Also be very tender with these wires they break fairly easy. When done cleaning turn upside down and back so beads can scrape up and down on wires. Also you do know once clean the parts especially the big collection bars they need to dry for at leased 24 hours before ever powering unit back on. Hope this helps.

Stopped working will not turn on. Was cleaned and work fine for a while now it doesnt. It is not dirty.


I have the same problem and haven't been able to fix it. However, others have had the same problem and have posted their solutions. The sizzling sound is caused by electrical arching between the plates and one or both of the two tungsten wires that are run parallel to the plates (if you turn off all the lights and wait for your eyes to adjust to the dark before turning on the Ionic Breeze, it's a pretty cool light show!) Here are things found by others to cause the arching and what they did to fix the problem:
  • --dirt, lint, or tiny hairs stuck somewhere (usually towards the top or bottom of the plates or wire, and maybe in the grid contact points). Clean it better. Using canned air can help blow out the problem.
  • --water droplets. Make certain there is no moisture anywhere when you put the grid (plates) back in. Using canned air can help dry hard to reach areas.
  • --burn marks or melted plastic. These indicates a short circuit. Says dnewcombe1: "There is a feeler bracket that guides the two rear thin wires while the cartridge is being inserted. This "feeler" can melt and become disarranged." You can't fix this issue.
  • --build up on the ionizing wires. Clean them. It's hard. I took mine apart and used steel wool.

Red Cleaning Light won't turn off


After cleaning the unit, replace the grid into the unit. Hold upside down for at least 30 seconds to reset.

If that's one of those fanless air purifiers with parallel plates, it is not all right. The plates need to come up to charge and not discharge much at all unless there is a big contaminant particle (e.g. flying insects.) You may or may not be able to make the plates parallel again; there should be no sharp bits. If it's an ionizer, even then the flashing should be rare; otherwise you will get more ozone than you need. That can be fun, but it is not making plain old clean air....

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.
