Question about Sharper Image Professional Plus Ionic Breeze? QUADRA GP Silent (SI861) (2 Pack) Air Purifier
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 !

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.

My Ionic Breeze would work for a short time after cleaning and the blue light would start flashing again. I checked the wall cube power adapter with a volt meter. It was putting out only 10 volts instead of the needed 12 volts. It seems The Ionic Breeze needs a full 12-13 volts to work. So I went to Radio Shack and bought a universal 12 volt 800ma power adapter. I checked the voltage in the new adapter, it was 13 volts. This fixed the flashing blue light problem. The Ionic Breeze produces harmful Ozone gas, so I don't use it anymore.

Just wanted to say thank you to the one that said clean the bottom of the blade part with qutip's and alcohol and tip it upside-down and tap on the bottom to get out any particuls that could be trapped. Remember to put it on its side to put the blades back in and press in firmly. Worked for me still working.
