Question about Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP SI730 Air Purifier

3 Answers

Sharper image Ionic Breeze germicidal protection, professional series

The unit does not come "on" when plugged to the outlet. It has been regularly cleaned, both the removable collection grid as well as the grills. Have even changed the UV lamp. Never made any noise, but now does not come "on". A similar unit bought at the same time is working fine. Sharper Image is in liquidation and they are unable to provide any help. Can someone advise me as what should I do, short of dumping it. I purchased these units in 2004.

    Unit plugged directly to the wall outlet

  • Bhalamanas Jun 16, 2008

    I am a lay person, please advise how to access the "ON" switch that should be rewired. A little step by step instruction will be greatly appreciated.

Hello

if it does not come ON then there must be some problem in power board

is the green light glowing?

Posted on Jun 16, 2008

Is it plugged directly into wall power, or into a power strip?

    Some have found the power-on switch to be defective. The switch is constructed of two contacts on a printed circuit board. Over the years, the surface of the switch contacts became oxidized
    and no longer makes a connection when depressed. Rewire the switch andyour Ionic Air Cleaners should be
    working again.

Hi, I have the ionic breeze germicidal air purifier floor model. One of the wires inside has broken. Can I get this fixed?. Thanks for any help you can give. Joyce Turner


Joyce, according to Sharper Image, if you purchased it online from Sharper Image after 2008, they will assist you with the repair. Call Customer Service 877-714-7444 . If that is not the case, you can either return it to the place of purchase for repair or take it to a small appliance repair shop,

I need 2 new UV-C Germicidal Lamps for GP and GP Pro.


Hi.

Both Ionic Breeze purifier and replacement parts had been retired from the market because of health concerns related to ionic technology. Parts are sometimes available on ebay, but I suggest not carrying any repair on this unit.

Please read the brief article that I wrote here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r5303535-ionic_breeze_parts_repair

I have the same problem as gerardperez7. One of my germicidal light quadras won't turn the light on and doesn't appear to be cleaning the air at all. I even put a new light bulb in it and it doesn't fix the problem.

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

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.

Ionic Breeze - Press Blue - Press Geen button


The blue means the germicidal lamp is operating. Re: green light - Normal operation at all power levels involves a pre-programmed cycle of altering high and low air movement. Press the the green to override the regular power control setting and run the unit at maximum power for five minutes. Your previously selected power level will resume after the five minutes has elapsed.

Unit stopped working. Do you have a customer service number for the Ionic Breeze company? 2 units one stopped working checked outlet moved to different outlet still not working other had a wire inside...


The product is no longer supported because Sharper Image recalled the units after losing a lawsuit against Consumer Reports forcing them into Chapter 11.

There is a thread on this site with further details.

I have a sharper image Ionic Breeze GP still under warranty. One of the blue lights on the Germicidal lamp is out and needs to be replaced. Where can I purchase this part, now that Sharper Image is no...


If the warranty you are counting on is a Sharper Image Warranty I need to advise you that it was voided in the buyout on 30 May, 2008 when everything at Sharper Image was liquidated by Hilco Consumer Capital, Gordon Brothers, and Bluestar Alliance. If however it was a warranty company outside of Sharper Image you need to contact them.

You can purchase a bulb for the GP on ebay for under $11, which is really a good price considering what you would have paid from Sharper Image. Installation is easy, you just pull up on the tab on the bottom of the filter and pull up. When you are looking at the bulb, turn it 1/4 turn, (2 clicks) and pull it out. That is all there is to it. Hope this helps you.

I have the Ionic breeze Professional Series GP. It wont turn on...like its getting no power, but it is plugged in. It has no lights nothing!


Ionic Breeze is no longer being supported by Sharper Image. They did have a recall program on the product but I believe it has been discontinued.

The product was proven not to clean the air by Consumer Reports as well as EPA studies. Sharper Image tried to sue but lost.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is reviewing all ionizers and will make a decision by the end of the year. Due to health issues with using the machines themselves, these machines may disappear for good.

Professional Series Ionic Breeze Tabletop


There isn't one. The reason why Sharper Image went out of business is because the Ionic Breeze was proven to be ineffective product and harmful to use in some cases based on Consumer Reports data as well as data from the EPA. They sued Consumer Reports, lost the case, and had to pay all the legal bills.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to making decision on all ionizers by the end of the year. It's quite possible that no one will be selling them anymore.

There is thread I left in the Ionic Breeze section about the EPA data on ionizers and the harmful effects of using them as well as a link about what happen to Sharper Image.

This product should have been regulated a long time ago. Orek and few others are going to be pulling the plug on them real soon.
