Hi,
There is either a piece of dirt that is large enough to be across the two parts of the grid, or there is a broken wire that is shorting out the grid...
To find it will require very careful inspection or you will have to replace the cell....

It keeps making a static sound. and it lights up with the sound because there is a small shock that happens ever 10 seconds in the back above the filter


That happens when the electrostatic grid needs to be cleaned. There should be instruction for cleaning the electrostatic grid in the owner's manual.

When clean the filter in one hour the machine stop and i need clean back


clean the metal filter grid blades with a long strip of scotch brite pad and also clean the corona wires in the back of the unit very gently with light grade sandpaper. i had this problem and tried cleaning my unit so many times that i was ready to toss it into the trash. now it works normally. i did some spray painting in the room where the unit was operating and believe it picked up a coating of paint causing the sparking. good luck!

I have the Ionic Breeze Hybrid GP from Sharper Image. It has an "arching" problem in the lower section of the grid. Can this be fixed? How? The unit goes into "drying" mode and the fans still run, but I...

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.

RED LIGHTS COME ON AFTER I CLEANED THE GRIDS


hi.....
u wud have to take a pair of needle-nose pliers and rip out the metal blade at the bottom where the spark is occurring and fold it back against itself so that it is no longer "seated" into the bottom of the unit where the sparking is occurring

take care to bend the parts back in line with the blade so that lined up and could be removed and replaced into the unit without scraping anything. When u put it back in, there ll be one last "spark" or probably a couple...... and after that i shud work just fine...... 
thank youhave a nice day good luck

The collection grid sparks after being cleaned


Hi there,

I know you are probably getting frustrated by now. A little more patience please.

Now this is going to sound off the wall, but it will tell you whether or not water it the cause of the problem. I've had success doing this on many types of equipment and flooding.

Freeze it. Put it in the freezer, along with a fresh ice tray. when the ice tray is frozen, pull the unit and try it.

If it still exhibits the same symptoms, water is not causing it.

If the problem disappears, it still needs some drying time.

Comment me back after the freeze.
Thanks for being so patient
Mike

My Sharper Image ionizer after I cleaned the grid now makes popping noises and then the red light that says drying grid comes on most of the time. Sometimes the light that says attention required comes...


You are probably aware that the ionizer uses a very high voltage (at very low current) to function. If you have used a cleaner of some kind on it, you could have made the grid sensitive to moisture.
I would remove the grid again and wash it thoroughly in distilled water to remove any residue that stayed behind, then dry it in warm air before reinstalling it.

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.

Unit seems stuck in the "drying grid" mode


I had the same problem with my GP. It has worked great for four years and only recently seemed to get stuck in this drying cycle. I cleaned the grid many times, cleaned the wires, cleaned the whole unit as much as I could to no avail. The trick: You need to clean the two metal prongs and surrounding area that insert into the bottom of the grid, when you inserrt the grid. they are sharp like nails, so take care. Use an alcohol based cleaners and clean the prong and around each base. This fixed the problem for me and she's back up and running well.
