Sharper image ionic breeze air cleaner

I bought a pair of ionic breeze air cleaners in 2002 and both has stopped working at about the same time. There appears to be no power when turned on. I opened the bottom and the fuse is good. The units appears to die just when the warranty period has ended (5 years). This is the original model first put out by Sharper Image. Have lost power. I have tried the solutions recommended with no positve results. I purchased my Ionic Breeze in 2004. What is next or where can I send it for repair?

    My Professional Series SI737 buzzes, and clicks and sizzles constantly, as well as now gives off a kinda burnt smell.  It's 2.5 years old.  I've thoroughly cleaned it as well as shook it up and lightly sanded the wires.  On the back of the owners manual there was a warranty number to call, but you have to have the name of the purchaser to honor it, which I now have, since it was a re-gift.  However, I've misplaced the owner's manual.  Anyone have that number?  And, BTW, they are still honoring SOME warranties, so it's worth a shot.
    Thanks.

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.

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.

Ionic breeze gp just stopped working


Hi.

I don't know if you are still trying to repair the air purifier.

About your Ionic breeze purifier, I wanted to report that they are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. New model built from 2008 use a completely different technology. Parts are also not distributed anymore, and the new Sharper Image does not provide any support for the old model.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Ionic Breeze Quatra Hissing Noise


While the device is turned off and the filter is out, tip the unit itself upside down and back. Do this several times, there is a slider type cleaner inside that moves as you turn the unit. Be sure to do this every time you clean your filter and you will never hear a peep out of the thing.

Installation is easy, you just pull up on the tab on the bottom of the filter and pull up. When you are looking at the bulb, turn it 1/4 turn, (2 clicks) and pull it out. That is all there is to it.

SHARPER IMAGE AIR CLEANER HAS STOPPED WORKING, NO BREEZE COMING FROM UNIT AND BLADES ARE NEVER DIRTY. THE "ON" LIGHT IS ON.


Sharper Image no longer supports Ionic Breeze machines. They recalled them a few months back since Consumer Reports and the EPA has determined that they weren't working and can even cause health hazards during usage. Sharper Image sued an lost forcing the company in bankruptcy.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to make a decision on sales of all ionizers in the U.S. by the end of the year. It's looking like you won't be seeing these around much longer.

Sharper image ionic breeze air cleaner


I was able to find the power-on switch to be defective. The switch is a momentary normally off switch constructed of two contacts on a printed circuit board1.gif. After five years, the surface of the switch contacts became oxidized and no longer made electrical continuity when depressed. I rewired the two wires to a new momentary switch and both my Ionic Air Cleaners are working again.
