Question about Ionic Pro TURBO Air Purifier

Open Question

My Ionic Pro stopped working. The light turns on it just doesn't make any kind of sizzling sounds anymore. Could something be wrong with the blades? I moved states and when I got it to my new house it was really dusty and electrocuting me every time i touched it. I cleaned the blades a few times then it stopped electrocuting me but didn't sizzle anymore or work at all but the light still turned on. I kept it plugged in a few days and kept trying for like a week and nothing happened.

SOURCE: Ionic pro sizzles and crackles when I turn it on.

"A blinking light indicates when the blades should be wiped clean with a damp cloth." I actually had a "handyman" contract last year to visit an elderly gentleman once a month and clean all 9 of his Ionic Breeze GP air purifiers. Before I did that for him, they would make hissing noises and he really didn't like that. Here's how to clean the operative compnents of these machines: First, unplug the machine and place on a work surface, such as a table or kitchen counter. Second, remove the metal blade insert from the top by gripping the release tab and lifting it up and out. Also remove the front and back grilles by pressing on the plastic tab at the bottom and lifting up on them. Third, use a damp rag or paper towel to wipe the three metal blades clean. Do not immerse this assembly in water, because it has to be completely dry when re-installing it in the machine. Fourth, use a small piece of damp paper towel to VERY GENTLY wipe clean the two thin wires inside the unit. These are located behind the two rubbery flat blades just inside the unit and can be accessed from the front side. You won't damage these rubbery flat blades by pushing your hand gently between them, but be VERY CAREFUL when wiping the wires clean. (This step is important, as the wires must be clean.) Fifth, using another bit of damp paper towel, carefully clean the wire attached to the inside of the front grille. Dry this off with a dry bit of paper towel, then clean any accumulated dirt off the front & back grilles. Check the metal contact near the bottom of the front grille (attached to the wire) to verify that it's clean and will make good electrical contact. Sixth, pick the unit up and turn it upside-down & right-side up about 6 to 8 times. The two wires inside have plastic beads on them that slide up and down the wires. This brushes any bits of leftover dust or lint off of the wires. (Again, these wires must be VERY clean.) Seventh, replace the front and back plastic grilles by placing them in their slots and sliding them down to snap into place. Verify that the assembly with the three metal blades is COMPLETELY dry, using a hair dryer if necessary to dry off damp areas, then slide it back into place from the top of the machine. Now the cleaning process is done, so plug the unit in and turn it on to test operation. If it makes ANY noise, then some component is not completely cleaned off, or still has a presence of moisture, which must be completely dried off before the machine is ready for operation. Hope this helps! ;)

I had the same problem and found that the mylar on the tabs at the bottom of the plate assembly was damaged (torn). I was able to repair the part myself using mylar tape. This solved the sizzle problem. I

SOURCE: My Ionic Pro doesn't turn on

i have taken the unit apart and found that if there is a broken wire you have to be a magician to fix it even if you had spare wires.

also found a small fuse in the bottom of the unit but it is soldered in. i am currently in the process of replacing and will post results asap.

If the plates are clean, there is nothing wrong with them. They are just 3 strips of metal... they don't even connect to each other unless they are in the unit. NO NEED TO REPLACE THEM.

My ionic pro ca500 has the blue light on but also is making a intermittent sizzling sound, I have wiped the blades, the clean light is not on.


What does the blue light mean? I had 4 Ionic breeze air cleaners, ionizer wires are broken. I was thinking about buying the Ionic Pro cleaners, but have no input about how well they work.

Crackles even after blades are cleaned


To stop the crackling sound, you need to remove all of the dust particles from the wire in the back. Sometimes when the unit is extremely dirty you can see sparks emanating from the wire, this is what causes the crackling sound. The unit has a built in cleaner you can lift up and down to perform this task, located on the top, but this doesn't work extremely well.

I usually take a can of compressed air and blow as much of the dust I can off the wire and all surrounding internal areas as I can. To do this, approach the unit from the front, and turn the blade door slightly so the wire can be seen. This along with a thorough cleaning of the blades should eliminate the crackling noise. Of course, make sure the device is unplugged before performing any cleaning.

Ionic Breeze - Cleaning Overdue light stays on even after unit has been cleaned


Hi.

The filter is damaged and may need replacement.

If the model is post 2007, to get parts or repair contact Ionic Breeze support. Here contact page.

If the model was manufactured before 2007, read below, in that case I suggest not proceeding with the repair.

I want to call attention on the fact that several of old Ionic Breeze models are not being manufactured anymore because of health concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts for old models that raised concerns are not distributed anymore.
I suggest contacting manufacturer, if parts are not available, then the purifier was among the ones related to health concer. In that case I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

My ionic breeze turbo makesa sizzle sound all the time...its even worse after i clean it. i use compressed air to clean it very well to


Turn the ionic breeze off, unplug it, and turn it upside down. The wires on the bottom of the unit collect dust. There are beads on the wires to scrape that dust off. Turn the unit upside down, and then right side up gently 7 or 8 times and the noise should go away. Yu may need to do this once or twice a week and after cleaning the blades.

Ionic pro problem


Try cleaning the springs the the blades connect to, they're probably making a bad connection due to dirty springs.

Blades


Does anyone in your house smoke? Could be from cigarettes. I was told by the Ionic Pro Company to clean the blades with rubbing alcohol.

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.
