Odors from a vehicle takes 2-14 hours on "high". Depends on the odors. Run the AC & heater fan for 20 minutes also when the car is full of ozone and have the unit aimed up on the floor toward the firewall on high. You should not stay in the car while doing this. Mild new odors can be neutralized in 20 minutes to 2 hours. Bigger and older problems take longer.
The purifier should be cleaned about once a month and you should do the following:
Unplug the Breeze before cleaning.
Wipe the Breeze with a soft cloth dampened with water, vacuum the front grill to remove any lint buildup.
Cleaning the rear lint screen - You can either vacuum the filter or you can wash in hot water. Allow to dry before reinstalling the lint screen. Do not use soap, it will damage the carbon material in the lint screen.
Remove the purifier plate from the purifier and soak in 1 part amonia and 1 part water solution for 10-20 minutes. Gently scrub the metal grid on the plate with a toothbrush and rinse with water. Clean the metal contacts with the same solution. Allow the plate to dry overnight or use a hair dryer to dry throughly.
Are the plates cleaned? They should be cleaned once a month by soaking in 1 part amonia and 1 part water for 10 minutes. Scrub with a toothbrush and rinse throughly with water. Allow the plate to dry overnight or use a hair dryer to dry throughly. Hope this helps.
have the same problem and haven't been able to fix it.However, others have had the same problem and
have posted their solutions.The
sizzling sound is caused by electrical arching between the plates and one or
both of the two tungsten wires that are run parallel to the plates (if you turn
off all the lights and wait for your eyes to adjust to the dark before turning
on the Ionic Breeze, it's a pretty cool light show!)Here are things found by others to cause the
arching and what they did to fix the problem:
--dirt, lint, or tiny hairs
stuck somewhere (usually towards the top or bottom of the plates or wire,
and maybe in the grid contact points).Clean it better.Using
canned air can help blow out the problem.
--water droplets.Make certain there is no moisture
anywhere when you put the grid (plates) back in.Using canned air can help dry hard to
--burn marks or melted
plastic.These indicates a short
circuit.Says dnewcombe1: "There is a
feeler bracket that guides the two rear thin wires while the cartridge is
being inserted. This "feeler" can melt and become disarranged."You can't fix this issue.
--build up on the ionizing
wires.Clean them.It's hard.I took mine apart and used steel wool.
The previous suggestion helped me because as I was examining the cell for debris I noticed markings for "Top" and "Bottom" inscribed on the four corners of the front of the cell that I had never noticed before. After cleaning I had installed the cell upside down. It would work for 20 minutes and then shut off. The rounded thingies on the bottom of the cell are contacts which should touch the little springies on the bottom of the housing.
