    We just bought the Ionic Pro Turbo last night... and the light keeps going to clean..... It is getting frustrating... does it really need to be cleaned that often?

    Mine does the same thing, keeps going to "clean". I wrote to the company and the answer I got was instructions on how to clean it, after I told them I already cleaned it. No help there!

    Ditto to everyone above e've had ours less than 1 yr. Now all we need is someone to tell us how to fix it. Other than to buy a new one!

    After cleaning the turbo and placing brand new blades in the machine, it continues to go to the clean mode.

    The blades are sparkling clean but when you turn it on it goes to High and then immediately to clean mode.

    Mine shuts off and the blades are clean... Ionic pro charges delivery fee and gives you a use model back... I would never buy from this company again!

I had the same problem and was about to open the unit up to see if I could adjust the sensitivity of the "clean light" trigger. Yeah yeah I know.. high voltage and all... but I'm an electrical engineer (which means I would know exactly what killed my dumb-a$$ after the fact). While looking I discovered a separate set of contacts under the swivel door. That is to say, unplug the unit, open the door, and remove the metal filter part (the thing you clean) according to the instructions. Look just below the lower part of the door (in between the door and the case) and you'll see a metal post and another metal tab. When the door closes, the two make contact which completes the circuit. In my case, they were covered with dust. I took some long Q-tips and cleaned them off and the unit started working properly again. There may be other things to clean along the circuit, but I believe that this is a step that should be done each time you clean the filter. Good luck.

    Underbite - I just bought one of these and it had the same symptoms you note out-of-the-box. Your solution 're: the tab and post' worked (for half of it, THANK YOU :) ). Prior to that it would not stay on for more than 5 minutes, period. Anyhow - The other 45% (it will now run for 4 or so hours and then shut off) - (1) Unplug, (2) Plug it back in and restart with a reset (hold down the power button for 15S before releasing.

    So in short, for those others in hell, a compilation: 1. Clean the blades, blahbladblah as they tell you 2. Clean the posts and the visible blade contacts with rubbing alcohol 3. MOST EFFECTIVE portion - Per Underbite's note, scrub the hell out of the 'hidden tab and post' underneath the swing door with a swab and rubbing alcohol (mine was more than a little dirty apparently coming out of the factory) 4. Clean the ionizing wire by-hand with rubbing alcohol. 5. Reset by holding down the power button for 15s or so when putting it on High. I just bought/received one of these by the way two days back, it was like this fresh-out-of-the-box - GOOD TIMES.

Same problem here. The blades are sparkling clean and it goes directly to clean mode, seconds after I turn it on.

Buzzing sound


you need to turn it off and remove plates,put in kitchen sink and spray with windex and dry with paper towels, now clean the bottom of the three plates too.
before you reinstall the plates look down inside you will see three thin lines of metal,make sure there is no lint or dust on them,reinstall and let set for five min. to allow any windex that might still be wet then turn on low for a couple of min.then go to medium

Ionic Pro makes weird buzzing noise


I found that the buzzing can be removed by blowing out the unit, cleaning the blades and taking a long cotton swab and alcohol to thoroughly clean the corona wire - carefully - don't break it. The wire should be clean enough that the slider/wiper runs smoothly up and down the wire after cleaning. If it drags or is rough to slide, you will still have noise no matter how many times you clean the blades. The wire gets a "crust" on it.
