I have si 637 quadra. cleaning the unit both little thin plates at the end of filter fell off. the unit works. how important is repair this ?


If you're talking about those little plastic tabs at the bottom, they aren't important. Their job is to wipe the ionizing wires when you take the grid out or replace it.

It emits a metallic burning odor.


The trouble began in 2003 when Consumer Reports magazine published a report claiming the expensive air cleaners don't clean air. The magazine later claimed its tests showed that Sharper Image's Ionic Breeze Quadra Silent Air Purifier and four other units also release potentially unhealthy levels of ozone.

There is a red blinking light and it is not cleaning.


My Ionic Breeze would work for a short time after cleaning and the blue light would start flashing and the unit would stop working. I checked the wall cube power adapter with a volt meter. It was putting out only 10 volts instead of the needed 12 volts. It seems The Ionic Breeze needs a full 12-13 volts to work. So I went to Radio Shack and bought a universal 12 volt 800ma power adapter. I checked the voltage in the new adapter, it was 13 volts. This fixed the flashing blue light problem. However the Ionic Breeze produces harmful Ozone gas, so I don't use it anymore.

I believe you have the same problem I have with my quadra. They have a fuse that is located in a very hard to reach area in the lower section of the unit. You have to look very closely to even find it. It's sodered in place place so one can't just change the fuse and turn it back on. Mine is blown and I can't figure out how to remove it. I was wondering if I could just by pass it but that wouldn't be safe.

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.

Will not turn on

I've heard if the plates aren't working, it doesn't turn on.

Now for the disclaimer:

Sharper Image has recalled the units. Consumer Reports released a report on all ionizers and the quadra failed. Sharper Image tried to sue Consumer Reports over the findings but they couldn't prove that the unit cleaned the air. Sharper Image was ordered to pay all legal fees forcing the company into Chapter 11.

EPA data has proven that ionizers not only are ineffective at cleaning the air but they are harmful to use as well. EPA.gov has a report on it.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to release a report on all ionizers. It's possible that they will no longer be for sale in the U.S. next year.

Sharper Image also recalled the ionizers for $35. Since there in bankruptcy now I don't think the program is no longer available.

Sharper image quadra-professional series stopped working


Sharper Image has discontinued the product after Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers.  Sharper Image couldn't prove they cleaned the air and had to pay all legal fees forcing the company into Chapter 11.  They recalled the items as well but couldn't honor the checks.
EPA data has proven that in some environments they can be harmful to use.
Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to issue a report by the end of the year.  It's possible that sales of all ionizers will be gone by next year.
