    There must be thousands of us stuck with this (S1719) product. Are there any real solutions, including mailing it to the owners home? Joining a separate action?

    Same problem. We bought three of the S1719's and disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled per mfg instructions (when the light starts blinking). That worked about four times each. Then cleaning that didn't work any more. We gave up.

    Same problem. I bought mine about 3 months appeared to work about 2 weeks, then the blue light began flashing when the unit was on both high and low settings. The grid isn't collecting anything.

Unfortunately, I can't find that information, as the company is currently in Chapter 11 and has sold off all rights to it's products as of June. From my experience though, when the light begins to flash, it is supposed to be replaced. At least I had to replace one that way while under warranty.

This unit can be replaced on ebay for around $45.00 which is under any labor cost to repair the unit you currently have. You can always post your unit for sale on ebay for parts.

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.

Ionic Breeze products are no longer being supported because Sharper Image has gone into bankruptcy because the units were proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air by Consumer Reports magazine and by EPA studies. In face they have proven that ionizers can be harmful to use if you have breathing problems.

Sharper image quadra silent air purifier has red light flashing

Have you cleaned the bars lately? I believe that red light means that the bars that collect the junk from the air are at capacity and needed to be wiped down.

If you don't know how to do this, pull them out from the top after having turned the machine off. Get a rag or paper town moist, but not dripping and just wipe the black soot off all visible sides of the metal bars. Lay it aside when done over night for it to dry completely, then re-insert them into the machine. Turn on and hopefully that should take care of it!
