Cleaning I would like to take my unit apart to clean the plastic outside casing and cannot figure out how to take it apart. I have removed the top and bottom screws. I'm afraid to yank on it to hard. It is dirty with dust and nicotine and would like to clean it. Thanks, Lorraine

Tip

Air Purifier Cleaning


You bought that air purifier to help to clean the air in your home. However you have forgotten about it and now you expect it to still clean, when all of the cleaning surfaces and the filter that catches the big chunks are completely used up and covered with dust and dirt.

Here is what you need to do on a regular, like monthly, basis to keep it working well.

  1. If your unit has a filter or pre-filter pull it out and wash it gently in some warm soapy water. If the filter is a throw away one then place it in a plastic bag and dispose of it. Be careful not to throw it away before you make sure you know what to get to replace it. You may need the old one for comparison when purchasing a new one. Also take note of how you removed it and the direction of the air flow. Some of the filters are made to have the air flow in a certain direction. The filter is often located in the back side at the bottom of the unit.
  2. Take apart everything that you can on the air purifier and clean all the pieces with a moist cloth. You may need to take toothpick or something small to clean out the small grooves and crevices in the unit.
  3. Leave everything dry completely before reassembling the unit. This may take quite a while for some of the filter media. A few hours is not uncommon, be patient.

You now will have your air purifier working in top condition again

Ionic Breeze Midi Prof. Plus has red light on and won't work


When you cleaned everything did you also turn the whole unit upside down and gently shake to remove trapped dirt in the bottom of the unit. As for taking this unit apart to clean throughly there is no need. Just use some q-tips with 91% Isopropal alcohol not Rubbing alcohol to get to the small areas. Pay close attention to the small arrow shaped metal contact near the bottom of the unit. Make sure it is wiped clean and everything is completely dry. Plug unit back into power and the red button should turn green.

I do not know how to clean it. It is called Fresh


The Fresh Air has a reminder on the LCD to Perform Cleaning. This reminder will display if the purifier runs for 30 days. When this reminder is displayed perform the following steps to clean your purifier.

1. Cleaning the Case:

Wipe the unit with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not use chemicals or solvents. Vacuum the front and rear grills to remove any lint buildup.

2. To clean the lint screen, RCI cell and purification plate:

3. To remove the back cover:

Remove the plug from the back of the unit. Unscrew the screw above the plug socket on the back cover. To remove the back cover, press the back sides of the back cover to unlatch and tilt the bottom of the back cover to remove.

4. To remove the rear lint screen:

Remove the two thumbscrews holding the top of the lint screen. Remove the lint screen by pulling back the top of the screen, then lift it up and out.

5. Removing the RCI cell:

Remove the RCI cell connector by pressing the connector locking tabs. Pull the connector straight out to unplug.
Remove the RCI cell by removing the two thumbscrews. Slide the RCI cell down and out of the unit.

6. Cleaning the RCI Cell:

Remove the RCI cell and carefully vacuum accumulated lint. Do not wash the RCI cell. Damage from water may result.

7. Rear lint screen cleaning:

You have two options

  1. When visibly dirty, simply remove the rear lint screen from the unit and with a duster attachment on a vacuum, remove the heavy particulate.
  2. In addition to step 1, the filter can be washed with hot water (do not use soap). Allow to dry prior to reinstalling. Replace if damaged.

8. Cleaning the Purifier Plate:

Remove the plate from the card cage by grasping the middle edge nearest to you, and slowly pull it straight out. Clean with mixture of one part water and one part ammonia. Place plate and ammonia mixture in a dish and allow it to soak for no more than 10 minutes. Remove plate and scrub with a toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly and air dry for 24 hours or use a blow dryer to dry thoroughly.

After all parts have been cleaned and are thoroughly dry, reinstall components in reverse order. Turn the purifier on, and on the key pad, press the reminder Reset button to clear the Perform Cleaning message.

If this has been helpful, please rate this solution. Thanks

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.

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.

Ionic Breeze GP S1830 - makes a sizzeling noise


Funny you should post this when you did as I just finished reassembling my S1730.
Mine was making very loud noise, arcing violently, smoking slightly and would give a good shock when you touched the plastic covers(yes dirty plastic will conduct electric current).

1. Unplug the unit
2. Take the plastic covers off, front has four screws and back has snap at bottom, both slide up when loose.
3. Wash the plastic covers
4. take the light out and clean it with windex
5. Vacuum the inside, be careful of the two corona wires
6. Find the bead on each corona wire and while turning them slight so the edges scrapes the wire, move them back and forth to scrap the white power off the wires
7. scrape the cone shape plastic that the corona wires runs into, this build up is the primary culprit of the arcing which is the noise you hear. be careful of the corona wires again. I used an exacto knife and gently scraped it, sandpaper has been suggested elsewhere, once done scrapping, wipe down to clean any residue. The top cones are only part accessible, after cleaning mine the noise still persisted but acceptably lower than before. I think if you completely take apart the unit you can clean this cones better.
8. Reassembly is the same is opposite of disassembling.

Hopes this helps you.

Red light stays on continually.


Same problem : after cleaning thoroughly inside by removing the Front & Rear Plastic grid and the stainless blades, I also cleaned the 2 wires (very softly and carrefully, not to break them), but the Red light goes on after only few minutes :

Here is my last Solution :
1 - Turn on (Low position) although the Red ligt is on
2 - Release the Rear plastic Grid (or Front plastic grid, or both of them) : That stop the unit automatically
3 - Replace it and make sur it's well locked : the unit turns on automatically.

After that, my unit works well, no mor Red light.

But my husband will see if he can by pass the Cleaning detector, so we will not have this stupid Red light on anymore !

Good luck.

Can't clean Ionic Pro CA-500 inside?


This unit is a pain in the @$$ to disassemble but it CAN be done. The way I always look at it: Someone ASSEMBLED it.

Remove the four screws on the bottom stand followed by two screws on the bottom side of the unit. Then remove the tiny little screws up each side that hold the grill together (you will need a precision screwdriver).

Carefully pull apart- don't force it.

One half comes off (clean that half) in bathtub. The other half does not come off-vacuum that half out and use q-tips.

When re-assembling, watch for two things: First the wire cleaner (that slides) runs on a track on each half- pull it out a little to best allow for fitting. Second, there are little tabs at the top that fit under the control panel-watch for those.

email me at originalpairadice@yahoo.com if any problems.

Ionic pro won't turn on


Solution, perhaps...

All electrical contacts can get a film on them. Try cleaning the contacts (at the bottom of the blade unit; you should see the three with the blades out) with an alcohol swab (make sure the contacts are dry before reassembly in this case) or a pencil eraser (vacuum the debris out before attempting to start it again).

If those contacts don't make up properly, the unit will think it needs cleaning, even though it doesn't.
