If you are referring to the "Perform Cleaning" message on the machine. There is nothing wrong with your machine. It is a feature of the machine to display this message after 30 days of continous use. After you have cleaned the grille, purification plate and vacummed the RCI cell, press the reminder reset button to clear the "Perform Cleaning" message.

My Ionic Breeze machines are pretty old and do not stay clean for very long before they start crackling. They are also exhuding a noticable ozone odor. Are they still safe to use and cleaning our air?


They need a very thorough cleaning.

You can use a soapy solution 1st, then wipe them dry.
Then follow with a 50/50 solution of water & vinegar. Clean well on all the metal cells, then rinse wipe with damp cloth then wipe as dry as you can.

Allow to dry overnight, ensure that the cell is very dry prior to starting.

Then final thing - keep inverting upside down then right side up numerous times. You want the little beads to slide up & down the wire. This will clean that as well.

I have cleaned the filters, and i still get the Clean Filter message. It is running fine, but the red letters Clean Filter are still there... any suggestions???


How did you clean the filters? I run mine through the dishwasher by themselves and it works pretty good. The tops and bottoms of the filters near the edges need to be wiped pretty clean.

The metal contactors and the wire spade connectors get pretty corroded and can cause continuity problems . I have had to replace those spade connectors and clean the metal contactors with emry sand cloth. Another trick is to soak the plate in ammonia to reduce the corrosion present on the grids

Makes buzzing sound after cleaning blades


I keep the blades clean. Really clean. I'm a smoker, and you would not believe the crud that accumulates on those "blades"... <g>

First, I spray the blades with "PurplePower" cleaner/degreaser (from AutoZone), then I wipe them down with a sponge, then rinse with hot water. then dry them with compressed air (I have a compressor...).

FWIW, "Windex" works pretty good too, but... the degreaser really works well on the cigarette "residue"..

Second, there are two long wires inside that also have to be cleaned, periodically.

If your unit has the "pull-tab" cleaner, use it. One of my units has it. The other two don't.

On the ones that don't have the built-in cleaner, I stick a chopstick in through the rear vents, and CAREFULLY rub it against the sides of those wires, which "scrapes" the "white crud" off of the wires. Take your time. You will likely have to "change locations" several times in order to access the full length of both wires.

NOTE: those wires are fairly durable, but BE CAREFUL with them.

Either way, after cleaning the wires, I then "blow" the unit clean with compressed air.

Voila! No more buzzing. Until the next time the wires get "crudded up".

IONIC BREEZE GP


Okay, after working on my Ionic Breeze Quadra I have fixed it. My problem was it wouldn't turn on even though the fins were clean.

1. Unplug
2. Turn the machine upside down (there are 4 screws holding the bottom stand on) remove the screws
3. once bottom is off there are 2 screws sideways helping the hold the 2 sides together. Remove those 2 screws.
4. Turn the machine uprgiht and remove the middle fins (the ones you clean)
5. Remove the 4 screws that are deep in the 4 holes when you look down inside (you can't see the screws, I had to feel for them with a phillips head narrow screwdriver)

(it will be easier if your screwdriver has magnetic head for next step.)

6. after removing the 4 screws gently work lose the top (part that has the little lights and turn on push switch)

7. turn the breeze on its side, you will find about 5 or 6 tiny screws holding the two sides of the outside louver case together. Remove all these screws. You will be thankful for the magnetic end, I have small fingers and still had a problem catching the little screws.

8. You want to take off the screws from both sides but only remove one side.

9. Being careful of the wires (I left that side alone) I worked from the wire free side and using a bottle of rubbing alcohal and lots and lots of q-tips I gentle cleaned off all the gunk on all the little metal pieces at the bottom of the breeze (on the inside where the wires are). Clean as good as you can, you will find the metal pieces covered with what looks like tar but it comes off with the alcohal.

10. Using a can of 'canned air' like you'd use for a computer, gently blow the rest of the breeze parts getting all the dust away but being careful not to damage the electronics. (there are a lot of little computer boards). I didn't find any dust in the electrical parts in the very bottom of the breeze, just above where the fins are and some at the top where the controls are.

11. I cleaned the 1/2 I took completely off with some rubbing alcohal, gets that **** off pretty good but didn't mess with the side with the wires, just blew the dust out, gently cleaned a bit and on the outside.

12. To put back together, first I gently put the outer middle pieces together and then gently put the control top back on and replaced those 4 screws. Then I put the 10 or 12 tiny screws back into the middle, then the 2 screws in the bottom sides and 4 screws putting the stand back on. I stood it up, plugged it in (make sure its dry) and turned it on and the light came on and it is working great.

I've had mine for 3 years so I think they occasionally need a thorough cleaning. Except for the canned air I bought nothing else. Everyone has rubbing alcohal and q-tips in their homes. When I first started I didn't know how to dismantle it and tried to clean the inside with long q-tips but it was too hard. Those little metal pieces in the bottom make some sort of connection to the fins we pull out and clean so I guess they need good contact.

I hope I've helped all of you with the problem of the Ionic Breeze Quadra and I suspect any other iconic breeze type machine by sharper image pretty much comes apart the same way and may have the same problems. I don't know how to post this so that everyone can see it as a general solution. Maybe you guys at FixYa can help with that. --- Harry Potter Without the Wand (and a female to boot!)

Fan is not turning on


The fan motor is probably locked up. You can either put a little oil to free it up (usually a temporary fix) or better yet replace the fan motor.
