The Ionic Breeze cleaning light is probably controlled by the resistance or capacitance measured between the cathode wires and the anode plates in the unit. If the circuit characteristics are changed then the system will react as if there was a load of contaminents (dust) on the anodes. Clean all of the connections (the flapper plates, the connection spikes, and the ground connections.) very gently use very fine sandpaper or steal wool to clean the cathode wires (they will form a crust after a few years. Be very carefull these wires are very delecate. Yearly cleaning with canned air and polishing the connections will help to keep the unit health. In high humidity the dust can become almost like tar.

"Cleaning overdue" red blinking light after cleaning was done


Check that there are no fine pieces of lint that are bridging the plates or the ionizing wires, to ground.

Check the contact points of the collector cell and inside the unit.

The light is caused by a shorted collector cell and associated components.

Ionic breeze quadra s1857 Red light continues to blink needs cleaning even after cleaning. not filtering. help


Mine is a Pro-series Quadra. It needed better cleaning.

The front and rear plastic grill scome off (release catch at the bottom of each), allowing access to the central core. I cleaned it with a damp rag (let it dry before you turn it back on). Be very careful of the two wires running the length of the unit -- if you break these it will not work. I did, however, gently clean them.

When I restarted it there was an unusual smell for a few minutes, but all is working well again.

Ionic breeze quadra constantly blinking cleaning overdue, evenghough it is clean.


If it still works after you cleaned it, consider yourself lucky. If light blinking bothers you, just put a piece of black electrical tape over it and enjoy it. That unit has been driving me nuts for years. I cleaned mine and now it doesn't work at all. A blinking light I could put up with, with a little tape. Enjoy it because it still works.

Quadra air purifier


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 causing Sharper Image to reorganize.
 
The 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.

Quadra - only red light goes on.


In addition to cleaning the plates on the cartridge, also turn the unit upside down then right side up a few times. There are 2 small wires inside the housing, and each has a ceramic ball on it that cleans the wire when the unit is inverted. Also, look through the vents to make sure the wires are not broken. If they are intact, they run in a straight line, almost the entire length of the unit.

If this does not help or the wire is broken, contact The Sharper Image. I believe this unit has a 5 year warranty. When mine failed, they exchanged it for free, even without a receipt.

Good luck!

Ionic breeze quadra s 1837


I had a problem with my Ionic Breeze Quadra. Green light would only blink for a second then the red light stayed on. I cleaned unit very good but problem came right back. I blew out the breeze with an air compressor. Not much came out, but now I am green and back in action. I used about 75 psi to clean out.
