Can't turn it on -- need manual

My dad had this thing working today, but now I moved it into my bedroom, plugged it in and I can't get it to turn on. There must be a trick. Battery is good, screen working, can't turn on the filter. Please help!

You need to change the battery on it; once the battery dies, the filter will not turn on,

Give it away! Seriously. I put it in the garage to throw out, my mom came and was willing to give it a try. Even though I couldn't get it to work it performed like a charm for her! LOL!

You have to plug the unit into the wall directly and not to a power strip or UPS. Then just choose the speed for continuous filtering.

I bought the big Idyllis -awesome;however, I purchased a second and it was possessed - makes woooo noises. exchanged it. Same thing. Smaller unit -loud. Would like another large with the wooooooo.

I used to use a damp papertowel and then an antiseptic wipe or spray a tiny bit of windex on a second paper towels and wipe each bar individually lts just a pain and a bit scary. this way it should be left to dry for hours. the dust is connecting the ionic filter the metallic bars that look like the bottom of a DVD are statically connecting creating the pop noise a shaking or rattling noise means it probably wet.
I got a trick use a microfiber towel to wipe the majority of the filters filmy residue. then grab a screen cleaner used for a tablet I pod or a cell phone. once the icky sticky collection on the ionic filters metallic bars. the cell screen cleaner. should make all the metallic parts oil and dust free. and they can be used over and over again. a microfiber towel just needs to be rinsed by hand afterwards if it's dirty it's fine it's just used so that there's no papertowel remnance. a glasses lense cleaner should just get the oils off afterwards cause that will make it so it won't attract dust quicker which is how it shakes wen wet. Basically tiny dampness attracts dust creating a clumping which makes it unbalanced so then the shaking or rattling. u gotta start over again. those are two ways.
now afterward take a deep breath plug it in hold the button down for 3 to 5 seconds. This should reset the switch to normal and then press it again to turn it on. it should only have a tiny breese. My dad would say that it's broken but it's for allergens and free flowing dust. So have it a foot off the ground and usually near a light switch cause they never have furniture there also all switches are out of the way cause usually the first thing you need to see is light which is why ur hand reaches not ur feet as if u would kick first to find a couch. if you have it by the couch or chair it my seem plesent till it falls. all purifiers r the same an ion charge stimulates low electricity attracting fibers or dust as a balloon gathering static electricity. the best purifiers to have are the water filtering purifiers no problems there just change the water once a week. well I hope you got some knowledge of helping you understand how and why they do as they do. most people end up giving them away.

The machine seems to be working, but I am not getting the same clean smell I use to. I have a bedroom closed up with an old mattress that smells of cigerette smoke, usually this sort of thing is no problem...

Check that the purification plate contacts and associated wiring are clean and make good contact with the plates. Also check the plates themselves for dirt build up on the metal grid. If the plates are a few years old, they should be replaced. Your dealer should be able to help you get new plates. Leave a comment if you need additional help.

My Sharper Image Ionic Breeze, model 51737worked fine but when I turned it on today it wouldn't work. What could the probelm be?

those things are not worth a bit. you should throw it away you could even possibly be causing yourself more indoor air quality problems by running one with the amount of ozone they produce and put into your home. throw it in the garbage.

Leather recliner near the unit has become "tacky".

Unfortunately this site has cut off your description of what has happened to your leather recliner, but here's my best guess...  If the handles of the weight equipment are made of rubber, then almost certainly what you are experiencing is oxidative deterioration caused by the ozone that your "purifier" emits.
It may give a fresh smell to the air, but ozone is an environmental pollutant, causes degradation of organic matter such as leather and rubber (which is how it eliminates nasty smells) and is toxic to animals (including people), often causing respiratory problems.
Writing as a qualified chemist and biologist, I would not want to be in the same room as an ozone generator, and preferably not even in the same house. My advice to you: turn the "purifier" off - permanently!  It will be better for both you and your possessions.

Hi Teresa,
that is certainly not the smell the machine should produce :)

The smells, other then fresh air, might be 'trapped' in the filter. So washing the filter (top rack of the dishwasher works for the metal mesh filters) might do the trick.

Another trick you can try is to put the purifier on the floor, turn it on high mode (away mode) and put a box over it. Let it run for an hour or two and the smells should be gone.

Make sure you have fairly new plates, to make the machine more effective.

My Air Purifier will not start. Bought new HEPA and Carbon filters and nothing.

I'm not exactly sure what is the problem with your unit since in the title you say it won't start, but in the body you say it won't stop!

If it won't stop just unplug it. I'm assuming that's not your problem though.

If it won't start check the 2 safety interlocks. These automatically stop the unit when you take off either the front cover or the top cover. (This is so you don't stick your fingers in the fan while it is running and sue Hamilton Beach.)

On my unit the top one stopped working because the small plastic tab on the bottom side of the top cover broke off. This tab is designed to press into a switch inside the unit when the cover is properly installed. I over rode the switch by placing a small folded up piece of cardboard into the switch slot and taping it in place. This activates the switch full time. The only drawback is the unit will not shut off automatically when the top cover is removed. This could be a problem if you have an inquisitive toddler or child around the house. I only recommend this modification if you don't have small children around!

The front cover has a similar interlock and can be disabled in much the same way.

I hope this helps.

Replacement Filter

i do apologize for the inconvenience that your having with the product. The only other thing that i can suggest cause you already did the majority of the troubleshooting, is that there should be a small pin hole on the top of the unit. that's the reset. stick a small pin in there and hold for about 3 seconds and then the unit should be reset. if that doesn't work there is something internal that is going on. recheck the manual for the trouble shooting options as well.
