Question about Sharper Image Professional Plus Ionic Breeze? QUADRA GP Silent (SI861) (2 Pack) Air Purifier

1 Answer

Intermittent "static surges"

My quadra is about 18 months old. Lately, when it is on at any level, it just makes static "surge" noises every few seconds. The blue light comes on with the "surge" and goes off in between. If I let this continue for more than a few seconds, the sound goes out on my TV!

Check all connections. Most likely, something is not firmly in place. Unplug the machine.
1) Make sure the plate is inserted into the grooves, top and bottom.
2) Make sure the contact "fingers" press firmly onto both sides of the plate.
3) Make sure the plug is inserted FIRMLY into the back (MOST COMMON PROBLEM).
4) Make sure the back screen is inserted firmly, and that the safety switch is depressed by it.
5) Make sure that the outlet is not on a line with heavy power users, like a furnace or refrigerator.

One of the wires on my ionic breeze quadra broke. It is one of the wires that have the glass beads on them that you clean by turning the quadra up and down. Can it be replaced and how? Thanks.


You're probably screwed...

The company went under and doesn't service them anymore. It's possible you could find a local repair place that might be able to do something, but there is no authorized or trained service station, and you can't get parts.

You might be able to pick up spare parts if you scour eBay long enough.

Good luck!

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.

After a few months, the device makes a very high pitched noise that is irritating to those who can hear it (me). It still seems to work well, but I want to know if this can be addressed.


Inoic Breeze machines are no longer being supported because Sharper Image went into Chapter 11 as a result of the products proven to be ineffective by Cosumer Reports and studies conducted by the EPA.
