Question about Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP SI730 Air Purifier

2 Answers

Broken Wire I broke one of the wires that the beads are on. Where can I get a replacement? Is is some special type of wire? I'm not afraid to tackle the repair myself. If I can fix it... Great. If not, oh well, it's broken now. thanks Greg

    So how exactly are the wires connected inside the unit? How do I take the unit apart? Same problem as above - one of the wires that has the bead on it broke.

    Will it work without that wire? If so, is it a hazard to run it on one wire?

Go buy a couple of .09 guitar strings from your local music store. This is how I fixed mine. You need to very mindful of the way it is assembled whilst taking it apart so you can duplicate the assembly in reverse:)

    Any wire of the right diameter and strength will work, requires a lot of dismanteling

TRYING TO FIND REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR A SHARPER IMAGE HYBRID GP GERMICIDAL AIR PURIFIER MODEL SI724 NEED THE WIRES AND BEADS TO REPLACE SOME BROKEN ONES


I have 2 of these air purifiers and I love them. I came to this site looking for a resolution because 1 of them stopped working properly. After running for about 30 seconds, the red light would come on. I had cut out 1 wire that was broken and thought that was the problem. There were sparks when it was turned on. After reading a couple answers here, I took a closer look and noticed that a second wire was also broken at the bottom. I just cut the second broken wire off the top and removed it and the purifier works great now. No more sparks!

The string inside my ionic breeeze quadra is broken. Is it possible to fix it


Not so fast with the screwing part. Go to a music store, buy the G string wire(008)gauge- at least 41 inches long- for a guitar.
If you have a digital camera make a video/pics history of your dis-assembly steps.
Remove the ozone eliminator-by pulling it off the tower.
Start with the base 4 screws, followed by the 2 collar screws at the base.
NOTICE that there is a space between the two halves at the bottom. I paid NO attention to this space-boy did I ever try to snugly close that one before I looked at another one to see that this separation is there for a reason.
Next: remove the "TINY"12 screws - 6 on the front/back side of the units ribs-look for these.
Take pics of each step. You will be happy you did this.
Store all of these diff. screws in separate jars.
Open the unit now like a wallet. Notice that the sloped top control button/light module can now be removed. See those 2 black square plastic covers-they hide a spring and an upside down W shaped wire holder. The broken wire can now be removed. If you are lucky, you may be able to to twist your new wire-after pushing it through the cleaning bead -with the one going down to the bottom module. Mine was too brittle and broke apart as soon as I touched it.
Remember: The 2 wires you see are just one 41 inch long 008 gauge guitar string.
They thread through a signal contact bracket at the bottom of the unit that is activated by the breaking of the wire to turn the unit OFF. Getting to this bracket is somewhat difficult and requires patience. Take a lot of pics to be able to reassemble the S 1637. I pulled the 41 inch long string under this signal bracket, evened off the ends, moved the top module down 2 inches and twisted the ends around the W shaped bracket that compresses the spring.
Honestly, I had to adjust the spring two times because I left off the cleaning bead. Now just reverse the steps and you got your unit working. The new string seems to push a lot more air.
Before you replace all of the screws, fold the unit together, insert the blades , put 2 sets of veggy rubber bands around the top and bottom and plug in/turn it on. Mine works now better than new. Did I mention that I had to do 2. The second was done in 2 hours.
Good luck.

If you're referring to one of the ionizer wires (wire that has beads on it to clean the wires) then unfortunately, I'm afraid the unit can't be repaired. As Sharper Image has no authorized repair centers or replacement parts. If you're referring to wiring in the base of the machine, then a repair could be affected by either cleaning off the wire ends and reattaching them with a small piece of wire or soldering the broken wire back to the unit itself. Sadly, many of us (myself included) spent a lot of money on these units and the only place I've found parts is a website called http://breezerepair.com/parts.html (not an authorized repair center) but of the parts they have carry, they don't have the wire you referred to. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Replacement parts


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.
