Try removing the blades, then unplug the unit and while holding it at the top and bottom reverse position three or four times ie make the top the bottom and the bottom the top. that should eliminate the sizzle.

Turn the ionic breeze off, unplug it, and turn it upside down. The wires on the bottom of the unit collect dust. There are beads on the wires to scrape that dust off. Turn the unit upside down, and then right side up gently 7 or 8 times and the noise should go away. Yu may need to do this once or twice a week and after cleaning the blades.

My ionic pro ca500 has the blue light on but also is making a intermittent sizzling sound, I have wiped the blades, the clean light is not on.


What does the blue light mean? I had 4 Ionic breeze air cleaners, ionizer wires are broken. I was thinking about buying the Ionic Pro cleaners, but have no input about how well they work.

My ionic breeze s1867 turns on and off will not stay on


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.

After cleaning the filters ionic breeze quadra is not working


If, when you push the on button it sizzles for a sec and then shuts off (clean light goes on), 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!)

Need Ionic Breeze SI737 assistance and heres a few answers to peoples questions


It took a while, however first check that the wire cleaning balls are free to move. The small grabbers do not always do their job. Next you will most likely find that the sizzle noise is coming from the top and or the bottom. Carefully turn the unit upside down then right side up again to clean the wire. Take a Qtip and dab with rubbing alcohol. Carefully and I do mean carefully put it in the unit and clean the wire where it is held on both top and bottom. Bata bing......... Hope this helps.

The blue light on my ionic breeze is blinking.


The ionizers were recalled by Sharper Image due to a lawsuit that they lost forcing the company into chapter 11.

There is a thread on this website with further details.

Making sizzling noise


Unfortunately Sharper Image has discontinued support on the product line.  There was a recall going on with the product but since the company is chapter 11 right now, I don't think it is being honored right now.  
What happened was Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers, Sharper Image received a bad score and filed a lawsuit.  They lost the suit and had to pay all legal bills. 
EPA has reported that using ionizers in a house or business may be harmful to your health.  You can read an article about it on their website.
 
The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to release a final report on all ionizers by the end of the year.  Their decision may discontinue all sales of any ionizers in the United States.  This industry should have been regulated years ago just by the EPA data alone and for some reason it has been ignored.

Ionic breeze is arcing inside unit


I have a sharper image ionic breeze hybrid gp that ran fine for years unitl it recently started sparking / arcing at the base of the grid blades and always in the same spot. I cleaned it several times but the sparking always came back and the unit went into either "drying grid" or "attention required" mode. The solution I found was to stand the removable grid in 2 inches of Pine-Sol cleaner 50/50 diluted with water for 24 hours then brush again with the cleaning brush and hot water. Presto! No more sparking.
