Cleaning overdue flickers no boost

I just bought my ionic breeze a few weeks ago. It worked great and even great after it's first cleaning. I now have a cleaning overdue light that came on, I cleaned again (Did not go back damp was completely dry) The Cleaning overdue light now flickers and when I try to boost it the boost light will come on for a few seconds then go away.

Ionic Breeze Midi Prof. Plus has red light on and won't work


When you cleaned everything did you also turn the whole unit upside down and gently shake to remove trapped dirt in the bottom of the unit. As for taking this unit apart to clean throughly there is no need. Just use some q-tips with 91% Isopropal alcohol not Rubbing alcohol to get to the small areas. Pay close attention to the small arrow shaped metal contact near the bottom of the unit. Make sure it is wiped clean and everything is completely dry. Plug unit back into power and the red button should turn green.

Ionic Breeze - Cleaning Overdue light stays on even after unit has been cleaned


Hi.

The filter is damaged and may need replacement.

If the model is post 2007, to get parts or repair contact Ionic Breeze support. Here contact page.

If the model was manufactured before 2007, read below, in that case I suggest not proceeding with the repair.

I want to call attention on the fact that several of old Ionic Breeze models are not being manufactured anymore because of health concerns. New model use a completely different technology. Parts for old models that raised concerns are not distributed anymore.
I suggest contacting manufacturer, if parts are not available, then the purifier was among the ones related to health concer. In that case I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

Please read the article below:

Ionic Breeze Health Concerns


Regards.

Ginko.

I have a sharper image midi and the red light (cleaning overdue)stays on even after cleaning? Will it still work with the light on? My real question how to fix it


Same problem : after cleaning thoroughly inside by removing the Front& Rear Plastic grid and the stainless blades, I also cleaned the 2wires (very softly and carrefully, not to break them), but the Redlight goes on after only few minutes :

Here is my 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 more Red light. Maybe it will work for you. I also found this other bit of information. Since then I have discovered a lot of information on the midi. Here is some more reading material that might interest you.

Could be a blade replacement needed but Sharper Image2.gifrecalled the product. Since it was proven in court that it wasn'teffectively cleaning the air by Consumer Reports as well as EPA data. As a result of the legal action, Sharper Image filed for Chapter 11.
Here are a few links about it:

http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2008/02/sharper_image.html

http://www.epa.gov/iaq/pubs/ozonegen.htm

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 Commissionis going to be making a decision on ionizers at the end of year sincethere are hazards in the air from using the devices. It could be thationizers 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. The next step to do if you can't get it to work is to file a report with the company.

The Ionic Breeze would work for a short time after cleaning and the bluelight would start flashing again. We 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 we 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 we don't use it anymore.

Best wishes. Hope this helps you. If not please leave me a comment and I will do some more research.

Ionic breeze quadra constantly blinking cleaning overdue, evenghough it is clean.


If it still works after you cleaned it, consider yourself lucky. If light blinking bothers you, just put a piece of black electrical tape over it and enjoy it. That unit has been driving me nuts for years. I cleaned mine and now it doesn't work at all. A blinking light I could put up with, with a little tape. Enjoy it because it still works.

My Ionic breez model no: S1861 is not working now. It was working fine last week until 2 days ago, there was no light when I turn it on. Before that, I heard sound buzzing and I've cleaned the grid well....


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.

Air purifier can't work.


The best solution is to dump sharper image. I found a few site that had good solid reviews for a better air purifier decision - http://www.airpurifierhelp.com and http://www.air-purifiers-america.com

Ionic breeze quadra s 1837


I had a problem with my Ionic Breeze Quadra. Green light would only blink for a second then the red light stayed on. I cleaned unit very good but problem came right back. I blew out the breeze with an air compressor. Not much came out, but now I am green and back in action. I used about 75 psi to clean out.

Red Cleaning Light is On


I have the same problem. I totally took the unit apart and cleaned it out. After I reasembled it, the same thing. Just that little cleaning overdue light on. I can tell that it is not working as well as there is no breeze coming from the front. That is what I get for buying a serviced unit.
