Question about Sharper Image Ionic Breeze 3.0 Air Purifier

2 Answers

The orange tape on the bottom of the ionization bars

Heya,

Maybe you can help me. No one else seems to have this problem. My ionic breeze seems to work, but it makes a very high pitched noise that only few people can hear (me--and I don't like it).

Anyway, I remember there being two strips of orangey tape at the bottom of the rods when I first got it. I don't seem them now, and if memory served, they looked like they could conduct or absorb static discharge. I'm wondering if the absense of those may be causing the device to make the high pitch noise.


Any ideas?

I have the Ionic Breeze Quadra (oldie... bought in 2000?)

    Thanks, but they orangey strips of plastic or tape are not present anymore, so they cannot be making the sound. Their absense *could* be the reason for the high pitched noise, but I have no idea what they were or how to get more of whatever they're made of.

There being two strips of orangey tape at the bottom of the rods appear to be mylar - a high resistence material.

There being two strips of orangey tape at the bottom of the rods wipe clean the two thin wires stretching the length of the ionic breeze each time you remove the filter elements to clean the filter. Seems like these wires may be emitting the audible high pitched noise if dirty.

I believe that the motor on my Ionic Breeze unit is broken. Can I replace it??


Ionic breeze units don't have motors. I thought they just moved the air by ionization.

The unit might need to be cleaned. Check you owners manual or the manufacturer for instructions.

Sharper Imaage Ionizers


Ionized air purification systems have been proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air. These reports have been published by Consumer Reports as well as the EPA. Sharper Image filed a lawsuit against Consumer Reports and lost. They were ordered to pay Consumer Reports legal bills as well.

Sharper Image issued a recall on all Ionic Breeze Ionizers and filed for Chapter 11 at the same time.

Ionizers have been proven to create an ozone that is harmful to anyone with breathing problems.

Here is a link to the EPA report

Here is an article from CNN.com about The Sharp Image

Support for Ionic Breeze isn't possible since Shaper Image has recalled the product.

Your best bet to keep the air clean in your house is to use a hepa filtration system.

Ionic breeze model S1637 needs cartridge brushes that clip in on the bottom end (this model has two ) where can i purchase these? regards, jim


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.

You might be able to pick up spare parts if you scour eBay long enough.

It was recalled because Consumer Reports tested ionizers and Inoic Breeze got a negative review. Sharper Image sued Consumer Reports and lost. Not only did they lose but they were ordered to pay all the legal fees forcing the company into chapter 11. Not only did Consumer Reports data ruin their case but data from the EPA shows that ionizers can be harful to use.

The Consumer Products Safety Comission is going to issue a report on all ionizers by the end of the year. Their report could prevent anyone from selling them. This business should have been regulated years ago and no one stepped up to the plate until this year about it.

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.
