Hello,

The answer is yes, it can be fixed. It all depends if you know about electronic repairs or not. If you don't know about electronics repairs, you can take it to the nearest repairman to fix it for you.

But if you feel you can do this yourself, you will need a soldering iron and led to fix the wire back to its right position.

Get a screw driver open the unit in other to gain access to the spot that got lose, heat the soldering iron and when its very hot, use a led to put the wire to its position.

Good luck.

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.

Sharper Image Midi S1853 / NO BREEZE


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.

I have this air conditioning unit where suddenly stops functioning and no power on the indicator. i have thecked the breaker and it is fine and ON with a three phase supply. I've checked the condenser at...


Hi, I will see if I can give you some idea of what may be happening. I work on these on a day to day basis. So, you have a split system with the condensing unit on the roof, or a package unit on the roof? Sounds to me it is the first one.So, you are telling me that the power supply at breaker below is OK, but you should have a power box at the condenser on the roof. When you reset power to the condenser, that's when you here this blast sound? To me from just hearing what you are saying , it would be the sound of the compressor trying to start up, and it has a internal problem making this noise. Tell me, when it makes this noise, does it trip the breaker again? If so, it is definatley the compressor. You can prove this if you are inclined to do this, is to find the 3 different wires going to compressor, and make sure power is off 1st. Disconnect them at the Contactor or remove the plastc cover from compressor and write down which wire goes to each terminal.Tape the ends so they dont touch metal. Turn the condenser back on and see if this blast is gone. If so, the compressor is dead and you will need a new one.You say you have 3 phase power? This is unusuall for a residential unit, 3 phase units are for comercial unit power. They dont use starting componants like Run or start caps because they have enough power to do the job.3 phase would have 3 hot legs of equal voltage unless it was the older 3 phase which will have a stinger leg with higher voltage then the 2 other legs.Maybe this is a commercial a/c. Also, the compressor is reversable on a 3 phase unit by moving 2 of the 3 wires on the load side of the box, like T-2 and T-3. If these are switched if the compressor is locked up, sometimes you can get lucky and break it loose.Please don't do this, I am just explaining to you a little about 3 phase. Try this so you can elimanate the compressor. The only other thing it could be, if this is a gas pack and you are starting the heat, you can be getting blow back premature combustion? But I don't think this is what you have. It has to be the compressor.So, lets prove it by taking it out of the circuit. all should hold and no noise.Still, a faulty compressor is not a good thing. Let me no. Best of Luck and safety first.
Sincerely,

Can someone tell me how the two wires in the bottom of the unit are supposed to be attached? I have not opened the unit, but see that one end of the two wires are attached to the two little plastic...


The wires you see are the high voltage grid wires -- these burn thru and break -- the more often the unit is cleaned the longer these wires last, but 18 months max is my experience.

There is no easy way to fix this -- even if one does the complicated, extremely nerve wracking reapir (with titanium wire) the unit will fail again soon.

Far as I know, there is no longer a repair service for these units.

Quadra will not turn on after cleaning


If, when you push the on button it sizzles for a sec and then shuts off (red 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.

Ionic breeze quadra not functioning


I had the same problem and could not find an answer anywhere. So here's what I figured out. The small wires running from top to bottom just inside the cover are your problem. Not the metal grid with plates that you can remove. The buzzing sound you heard is the resistance one or more of the wires is causing. The resisitance tells the pc board that your grid must be wet and therefore the unit goes into drying mode. I replaced my small wires and my unit is working better than ever. The wire is .005 diameter( important so that you keep the same resistance flowing to the pc board) and can be purchased at any good suppy house. I have since repaired another unit with an even simplier fix. I took the unit into a dark room and then turned it on. Watching the grid I could see the wire arching that was causing the resistance. Unplugged the unit, turned it over and with a flat head screw driver pushed the wire off its base connedtion. Turned the unit right side up and removed the wire from its top support. The unit works fine without the troubled wire. Hope this helps.

My Ionic Pro doesn't turn on


i have taken the unit apart and found that if there is a broken wire you have to be a magician to fix it even if you had spare wires.

also found a small fuse in the bottom of the unit but it is soldered in. i am currently in the process of replacing and will post results asap.

Ionic breeze 3.0 repair


My Ionic Breeze GP began losing power occasionally but I could shake it and get it to turn back on. It got worse and worse until it would not turn on anymore.

The problem on mine is the micro switch that detects whether the collector plates are inserted or not, so it is part of the safety mechanism. There is a about a one-inch cylindrical piece of plastic on the front of the collector plate handle. This cylinder goes through a hole and pushes on the micro switch (actually a plastic cover over the micro switch).

On mine, it appears that arcing inside the switch caused it to get hot, deforming the plastic a little bit and apparently ruining the inside of the switch.

The following URLs describe the switch, but I have not found a retailer that carries it:
http://www.dicgroup.com/pdf/SM/SM5-01N.pdf
http://www.dicgroup.com/e-pro01-sm.html

Another of the same model switch is used in the back of the unit to detect whether the rear cover is on (over the UV bulb).

If I cannot find a replacement, I am thinking of either bypassing the bad switch entirely or swapping the switch from the back. Either way would defeat a safety feature so it's probably not to be recommended, but I consider the sacrificing the switch for the back cover to be introducing only limited risk, so I might take that route if I have to.
