How do I fix the noise?


let it dry completely, disassemble as you would for cleaning, and remove filter unit. Inspect to make sure no paper or other debris like a seal has been dislodged. If you can see fan blade, see if it will turn with filter removed. If it moves easily, reassemble carefully and make sure the contacts are oriented correctly and any charcoal filter is on place as well. Try unit.

If noise persists, the unit has to be opened up to inspect bearings of fan/motor and to locate and remove any debris. At that time a drop of light sewing machine oil or pellet gun oil to lubricate the bearings is a good idea.

Unit will sometimes make a crackling noise.


Mine does it too, I finally just tried something else when I was cleaning the blades. I took some alcohol on a qtip and with the blades out of the machine I wiped up and down the line wires that are inside that go from the top to the bottom, and also the little balls that are on the bottom of the wires that slide when you turn your unit upside down. It seems to work, I do it every time I clean the blades. scribner062

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".

My ionic breeze doesnt seem to blow any air at all cleaning light stays off Is this normal?


best best is to unplug the unit, and clean the blades completely with a damp cloth, then wait a few for the blades to dry and put them back in the unit. usually cleaning these every 2 to 3 weeks and they should be kept clean to be effective at removing the contaminants in the air. theirs alot of controversy over thease untis thease day's butthey do fuction properly if kept in top condition. also note that the blades must be properly seated in the houseing to work. safty feature that if bumped or knocked down it will cause the system to mostlikly stop working till you pull the blades out and put them back inj. i observed this myself with a model and they are failry good quality but a pain to clean. good luck with it.

RED CLEAN LIGHT


After cleaning the unit, blue light turns on momentarily then red cleaning light comes back on. Have cleaned and dried unit including the contacts on the end (cleaned with alcohol). Sounds like a common problem, any solution?

You need to clean all the stainless steel contact points inside the unit, not just the blades. Make sure you unplug the unit before doing this.

Excessive 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.

Can't clean Ionic Pro CA-500 inside?


This unit is a pain in the @$$ to disassemble but it CAN be done. The way I always look at it: Someone ASSEMBLED it.

Remove the four screws on the bottom stand followed by two screws on the bottom side of the unit. Then remove the tiny little screws up each side that hold the grill together (you will need a precision screwdriver).

Carefully pull apart- don't force it.

One half comes off (clean that half) in bathtub. The other half does not come off-vacuum that half out and use q-tips.

When re-assembling, watch for two things: First the wire cleaner (that slides) runs on a track on each half- pull it out a little to best allow for fitting. Second, there are little tabs at the top that fit under the control panel-watch for those.

email me at originalpairadice@yahoo.com if any problems.

Ionic pro won't turn on


Solution, perhaps...

All electrical contacts can get a film on them. Try cleaning the contacts (at the bottom of the blade unit; you should see the three with the blades out) with an alcohol swab (make sure the contacts are dry before reassembly in this case) or a pencil eraser (vacuum the debris out before attempting to start it again).

If those contacts don't make up properly, the unit will think it needs cleaning, even though it doesn't.
