Red light stays on Ionic pro CA200

Cleaning wire mechanism has a very small piece of plastic missing so it's probably not making a good connection so the red light stays on. Any "patch and repair" suggestions to smooth it over so it makes a better connection?

The unit has an electronics malfunction. Return to the factory for repair. If you are a do it yourselfer then the problem should be obvious. it is NOT a fuse.

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.

SOURCE: Ionic Pro makes weird buzzing noise

I found that the buzzing can be removed by blowing out the unit, cleaning the blades and taking a long cotton swab and alcohol to thoroughly clean the corona wire - carefully - don't break it. The wire should be clean enough that the slider/wiper runs smoothly up and down the wire after cleaning. If it drags or is rough to slide, you will still have noise no matter how many times you clean the blades. The wire gets a "crust" on it.

My ionic pro air filters clean light will not go out. I have cleaned the blades but the clean light will not go out.


Hi Slipdope... make sure that you are also cleaning the ionizing wire. The wire cleaning mechanism is on top. Just pull up the tab and pull the cleaner up and down to clean the wire. If that doesn't work, call customer service at 800-875-8577 and they can do some trouble shooting with you and replace the unit for you if need be. Thank you.

Ionic breeze quadra s1857 Red light continues to blink needs cleaning even after cleaning. not filtering. help


Mine is a Pro-series Quadra. It needed better cleaning.

The front and rear plastic grill scome off (release catch at the bottom of each), allowing access to the central core. I cleaned it with a damp rag (let it dry before you turn it back on). Be very careful of the two wires running the length of the unit -- if you break these it will not work. I did, however, gently clean them.

When I restarted it there was an unusual smell for a few minutes, but all is working well again.

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.

The red cleaning light is staying on after I have cleaned it several times


I have had to hit the power button several times in a row to get the red cleaning light off till the other light went blue. Thats what I did, Did you just clean the blades? there is another part that cleans the wires too, Its like a plunger.

"clean" light


Sharper Image was giving customers a small rebate for the product since it was proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air by Consumer Reports as well data by the EPA.

This has caused a mess for Sharper Image that they went into bankruptcy as a result of it. The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be making a decision on ionizers at the end of year since there are hazards in the air from using the devices. It could be that ionizers are no longer sold in the US next year.

The industry should have been regulated and unfortunately the government never did anything about it until Sharper Image and Consumer Reports went to court on it.

Red Cleaning Light won't turn off


After cleaning the unit, replace the grid into the unit. Hold upside down for at least 30 seconds to reset.

Clean button


My ionic pro did the same, the red light just wouldnt go out, so I looked down the plate opening, (with unit unplugged), and could see one of the wires was broken. (these are the ones you clean by pulling up that plastic tab). I am currently looking for replacement wires, will post my progress. GregV

CA200 red light stays on, wont turn on


The machine is now part of a land fill elsewhere. Do to the company's attitude and refusal to help figure out what was wrong, they will not get another dime of my money. It seems that - when I tested - several of the components were zapped. I found at least one z diode out on the power supply end. I was not about to start fooling with the flyback xmfr. What amounted to the chrona wires tested fine. It is a neat idea but the company is worthless as far as customer relations. The "service" person could barely speak English (Engrish). They did not know a transistor from a fuse! I will recommend this product TO NO ONE. Ionic Pro - are you listening??? A VERY DISSATISFIED CUSTOMER!!!
