Arcing (snapping) seems too frequent

1. If the electronic cell(s) are wet from washing, turn the air cleaner off for two to

three hours.

2. Check the cell(s) for broken ionizer wires or bent plates. Repair if necessary.
3. Wash cell(s) and prefilter(s) if dirty.

    I just added a new F300 EAC, and as we are turning it on for the 1st time it sparks - Where can this come from? What should be done to ensure no issue?

I bought the big Idyllis -awesome;however, I purchased a second and it was possessed - makes woooo noises. exchanged it. Same thing. Smaller unit -loud. Would like another large with the wooooooo.

I used to use a damp papertowel and then an antiseptic wipe or spray a tiny bit of windex on a second paper towels and wipe each bar individually lts just a pain and a bit scary. this way it should be left to dry for hours. the dust is connecting the ionic filter the metallic bars that look like the bottom of a DVD are statically connecting creating the pop noise a shaking or rattling noise means it probably wet.
I got a trick use a microfiber towel to wipe the majority of the filters filmy residue. then grab a screen cleaner used for a tablet I pod or a cell phone. once the icky sticky collection on the ionic filters metallic bars. the cell screen cleaner. should make all the metallic parts oil and dust free. and they can be used over and over again. a microfiber towel just needs to be rinsed by hand afterwards if it's dirty it's fine it's just used so that there's no papertowel remnance. a glasses lense cleaner should just get the oils off afterwards cause that will make it so it won't attract dust quicker which is how it shakes wen wet. Basically tiny dampness attracts dust creating a clumping which makes it unbalanced so then the shaking or rattling. u gotta start over again. those are two ways.
now afterward take a deep breath plug it in hold the button down for 3 to 5 seconds. This should reset the switch to normal and then press it again to turn it on. it should only have a tiny breese. My dad would say that it's broken but it's for allergens and free flowing dust. So have it a foot off the ground and usually near a light switch cause they never have furniture there also all switches are out of the way cause usually the first thing you need to see is light which is why ur hand reaches not ur feet as if u would kick first to find a couch. if you have it by the couch or chair it my seem plesent till it falls. all purifiers r the same an ion charge stimulates low electricity attracting fibers or dust as a balloon gathering static electricity. the best purifiers to have are the water filtering purifiers no problems there just change the water once a week. well I hope you got some knowledge of helping you understand how and why they do as they do. most people end up giving them away.

Why does my car just turn over but wont start

A suggestion would be to check your fuel filter to make sure it is not stopped up. Your fuse to the fuel pump may also need to be checked. Chevys are notorius for bad fuel pumps.

Makes a hissing sound after I clean it

It may be a little late that I am answering your conundrum, but once you clean it, put the unit back together, tip it upside down until you hear a "click" and then turn it on. No hissing :)

How far in do the plates go and are they supposed to make a noise?

They should go as far so the back edge of the plates touch the back stop and the the metal clip on each side of the plate is touching the metal screen on the plate.

As far as noise, depending on the purification setting, they can make a hissing sound. If you see arcing or sparking, or hear any other noise other than a hissing sound, then it is time to replace the plates.
Hope this helps.

I own an Ionic Breeze Quadra unit. It has been working fine and I really like it because it removes bad odors from the house. Mine has just started making a hissing noise. Any suggestions? Thanks

Sparking, popping, hissing or crackling sounds coming from your Ionic Breeze air cleaner are all signals that it's time to clean your machine. Once you've cleaned the collection grids inside the Quadra, the disruptive sounds will disappear

how to clean

Turn off and unplug your Ionic Breeze Quadra.Grasp the horizontal handle on top of the air cleaning grids--this is in the very center top of your Ionic Breeze Quadra--and pull the grids straight up out of the casingWipe the metal grids down, inside and out along the entire length, with a clean damp cloth. You may need to use more than one cloth if the grids are very dirty.Go back over the grids with a clean dry cloth to remove any water and remaining dirtPut the grids aside on a clean, dry surface and grasp the body of the main Ionic Breeze casing unit in both hands.Flip the casing unit upside down, then right side up, five or six times. You should hear a small bead sliding back and forth as you do this. The bead is cleaning interior elements concealed in the casing; if you don't hear it, your unit may be in need of repair.Place the casing unit back on its base, orient the grids so that the handle slopes in the same direction as the top of the air purifier, then carefully slide them back down into the machine.

Crackling sound

You need to look inside (through the front grill) with the lights turned off, and try to spot the sparking/arcing high-voltage - - what you're likely hearing is a spark where high-voltage is grounding-out due to a fault in the wire insulation or some other insulating structure.

Once you isolate where in the machine it's arcing, you may be able to determine where it is and whether or not it's within your skills to fix it. If it's an XL-15 as indicated by this category, it's no longer in warranty (no longer even supported by the manufacturer, for that matter, so it will be up to you to determine how much you want to work with high-voltage electricity.

If you can find the spark, you might be able to report back here for more detailed advice. Hope this helps.

Unit stopped working; no power

Fuse is located on the bottom back side by on/off switch.
Grip both top and bottom to pull out. It's a squeeze lever on both ends. I was able to pull out using fingernails once, the second time I needed to use a paper clip on one end.
