    Yep, I have the same problem. Tried taking it apart since they are no longer serviced. Cleaned everything. No change. Acts as though it's not getting power, no lights nothing. Beside saying it's no longer supported does anyone know how to fix it?

    My unit just stopped after cleaning it. I have taken the grids off several times to make sure they are connected. That is not the problem. It seems to be getting no power for anything.

    my Quadra Ionic breeze stopped working. The lights come on but nothing else. I have followed directions on cleaning the internal portion with a pressurized can of forced air but that doesn't work. Is there a reset switch that I am missing? Any ideas.

I also had the same problem as the previous guest. It is important that you put the grills on first,then the top control piece. I agree, there must be a safety switch in the grid, because after several attempts my Quadra started working correctly when the connection was made. I recalled that when I purchase the purifier I didn't remove the grills when I cleaned the filters, only when I removed them did the problem start. Adriane

Samething happen to me but it turn out that I didn't put one cover back completely after cleaning it. From the outside it looks like it is closed but I have to completely remove it and put it back to fix the problem. It looks like there is a safty switch somewhere that will not power on if any of the cover is not put in correctly.

Hello to all, there is a small micro switch that is actuated by the grid. This is mounted on the side of the top control piece. There are two wires attached to the little circuit board, usually one is corroded so you need to cut it back and soder it to the center pin of the switch, thanks jim.

My professional series ionic breeze gp s1830/961 will not turn on


if it does not power up, then it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

I have no power to my Fresh Air by Ecoquest. I've taken it apart and all connections seem to be in place. Still nothing when pushing the reset or power buttons. Any advice?

Remove the filter on the back. On the outer edge of the filter frame, you will see a plastic tab. This tab is a safety switch and if it's not making proper contact with the trigger of the unit, it will not power up. Push the tab section of the filter frame snugly in first and then the remainder of the filter frame. That should solve your problem. It that doesn't solve the problem, check for a blown fuse, The fuse holder is on the back of the unit.

Need replacement grids for Sharper Image Model S1637 since clips at bottom have broken off of grid.

Replacement grids have been posted to ebay. You can replace the complete unit for $45 on ebay so that would probably be a better solution. The last grid I purchased on ebay for similar was around $20.
