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.

For what it is worth - All the little tabs do is wipe the wires to clean them - The unit will work fine without the tabs - You may have to carefully clean the wires with a soft cloth - "Carefully" - Bob

Apparently a number of us need the same replacement part. In the meantime I emailed customer service at Sharper Image...it's been several weeks, no response from them.

A spring leg (at the bottom of the grid) broke. The spring is still intact. Is the leg replacable or should I buy a new grid or unit?


The company went under and doesn't service them anymore. It's possible you could find a local repair place that might be able to do something, but there is no authorized or trained service station, and you can't get parts.

You might be able to pick up spare parts if you scour eBay long enough.

Good luck!

Where can I buy replacement grid for ionic breeze professional series model S1831?


G15T8 15W 15 Watt UV Germicidal Bulb IONIC BREEZE GP
Item number on ebay is: 220444965077

$10.99 plus around $5 to ship.

Pull up on the tab on the bottom of the front filter and pull up. You then should be looking at the bulb, which you will turn 1/4 turn (2 clicks). You should then be able to pull the bulb out.

Hope this was helpful.

Need replacement grids for Sharper Image Model S1637 since clips at bottom have broken off of grid.


Replacement grids have been posted to ebay. You can replace the complete unit for $45 on ebay so that would probably be a better solution. The last grid I purchased on ebay for similar was around $20.

Ionic Breeze Hybrid GP air purifier only 1/2 grid gets dirty.


I have been doing research on this unit. I read that only every other grill is suppose to collect. The remaining grills increase the electrostatic charge making the collection plates, the ones that get dirty more effective. So the bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your unit.

Unit seems stuck in the "drying grid" mode


I had the same problem with my GP. It has worked great for four years and only recently seemed to get stuck in this drying cycle. I cleaned the grid many times, cleaned the wires, cleaned the whole unit as much as I could to no avail. The trick: You need to clean the two metal prongs and surrounding area that insert into the bottom of the grid, when you inserrt the grid. they are sharp like nails, so take care. Use an alcohol based cleaners and clean the prong and around each base. This fixed the problem for me and she's back up and running well.

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.
