Sharper Image S1737 Shorting

Sharper Image S1737 appears to be shorting at the base of removable metal rods/electrostatic precipitators. It smelled burning plastic and see some sparking. I turned it off. Do you have a part that replaces the plastic housing for the contact points at base of removable collection metal grid?

Sharper Image Ionic Breeze products are no longer supported because they were proven to be ineffective by Consumer Reports causing legal disputes that the company lost. This legal dispute put the company out of business.

Here is an article about Sharper Image

Here is an article from the EPA about Ionizers

The Consumer Products Safety commission is going to release a report on all ionizers by the end of the year. Their decision could make ionizers a thing of the past.

My iconic breeze continues to clean the air, but it smells like 'static' or metal. Does anyone know what is causing this? We will have to throw away very soon.


Check the metal contact near the base of the unit inside by looking through the vents. If it's dirty that's the problem. The contact legs on the bottom of the magnet plate gets dirt on them too. Both need to be clear of any dirt or foreign material. If you are Hearing static instead of smelling it, that means the unit needs cleaning again. Hope this helps

Broken Wire inside unit. Looking to have it repaired or purchase part.


You're probably screwed....
The company went under and doesn't service them anymore. It's possible you could find a local repair place that might be able to do something, but there is no authorized or trained service station, and you can't get parts.

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

Good luck!

Ionic Breeze Hybrid GP air purifier only 1/2 grid gets dirty.


I have been doing research on this unit. I read that only every other grill is suppose to collect. The remaining grills increase the electrostatic charge making the collection plates, the ones that get dirty more effective. So the bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your unit.

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.

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.
