That "Static" noise you hear is where somewhere the unit is "Arcing" what you need to do is strip it down, take it into a darkened room and turn it on, now look for the Purple Sparks, when located turn the unit off, wait a bit, and separate the two, or more, points that the arc is going between. sometimes it can be a "Sharp" edge that will cause it, smooth this down if the case.. the High voltage of an ioniser is "Arcing" between some points that are a wee bit too close together.. Sometimes as you alluded to dust etc, can also cause this to happen, especially inside in the internal electronics, so make sure this is clean too. use a brush and vacuum if required.
Be careful, the can give a nasty, but generally NOT fatal, shock...

Pull the element out and take a moist cloth and clean it out. After it is completely dry put it back in this should do the trick. If this helps please rate me and do a testimonial

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


hi,
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.

Describe your Sharper Image Professional Plus? Ionic Breeze® QUADRA? GP Silent Air Purifier Problem: We cleaned it, now it makes a noise. How long is the warranty? Any idea what the noise is? ...


Warranty on these units expired on the 30th of May, 2008 when the company's assets were acquired and liquidated by Hilco Consumer Capital, Gordan Brothers, and Bluestar Alliance. All warranties became void with the bankrupt status.

With regard to the unit that you cleaned, I am assuming that you cleaned it the usual way you always have and it is now making a statical noise or a vibrating kind of noise, correct?

While the unit is off, take out the insert, pick up the unit and turn it upside down. You will hear some beads moving from the elevated end moving towards the bottom. Turn it upside down again and let the beads move to the bottom again. After doing this a few more times turn it upright and put the insert back in. You just cleaned the static lines. Turn the unit back on and see if the noise is still present. If so, try cleaning the insert again and after drying, see if the noise is still present. It is usually some dirt present somewhere that causes the noise to persist. If you have completed everything and the noise still persists you need a new insert which you can get on ebay.

The orange tape on the bottom of the ionization bars


There being two strips of orangey tape at the bottom of the rods wipe clean the two thin wires stretching the length of the ionic breeze each time you remove the filter elements to clean the filter. Seems like these wires may be emitting the audible high pitched noise if dirty.

I had a problem with my Ionic Breeze Quadra. Green light would only blink for a second then the red light stayed on. I cleaned unit very good but problem came right back. I blew out the breeze with an air compressor. Not much came out, but now I am green and back in action. I used about 75 psi to clean out.

Ionic breeze is arcing inside unit


I have a sharper image ionic breeze hybrid gp that ran fine for years unitl it recently started sparking / arcing at the base of the grid blades and always in the same spot. I cleaned it several times but the sparking always came back and the unit went into either "drying grid" or "attention required" mode. The solution I found was to stand the removable grid in 2 inches of Pine-Sol cleaner 50/50 diluted with water for 24 hours then brush again with the cleaning brush and hot water. Presto! No more sparking.
