Can't clean Ionic Pro CA-500 inside?

I have an Ionic Pro Air Purifier CA-500 and over the past 6 months or so it has gathered up a web of dust and and yuck stuff inside the case and there is no way to disassemble.  I can take out the blades and clean those, but as soon as I turn it on, they begin to slowly attract all the dust that is already in the Ionic Pro.  It is gross in there, i can see little flies and hair and thick blankets of dust.  I don't care if my warranty is ruined, I just want to know how to clean that out.

    After cleaning with soapy water the brown substance still will not come off. My husband smokes so I run it at all times. Please give me a solution to use to clean this sticky substance off the blades

This unit is a pain in the @$$ to disassemble but it CAN be done. The way I always look at it: Someone ASSEMBLED it.

Remove the four screws on the bottom stand followed by two screws on the bottom side of the unit. Then remove the tiny little screws up each side that hold the grill together (you will need a precision screwdriver).

Carefully pull apart- don't force it.

One half comes off (clean that half) in bathtub. The other half does not come off-vacuum that half out and use q-tips.

When re-assembling, watch for two things: First the wire cleaner (that slides) runs on a track on each half- pull it out a little to best allow for fitting. Second, there are little tabs at the top that fit under the control panel-watch for those.

email me at [email protected] if any problems.

If after cleaning the unit inside and it still doesn't work...get your frustration out by hitting it a few times...slide the blades in and out, hit the top...it worked for me! Now it works again!!

Take it outside and blast it with compressed air.

Have you tried blowing some canned air through the unit? You can find it in the computer department in any store. Do it outside.

No matter how much I clean the machine after it is turned on for 10 min or more it starts to buzz and make a static noise, any other suggestions?


The buzzing noise is not from dust in the air purifier, it's from the dust and pollutants in the air, it's now picking up. It should stop once the air is cleaned.

MOdel CA-500 is making a type of hissing sound. Almost like a zapping sound.


you need to turn it off and remove plates,put in kitchen sink and spray with windex and dry with paper towels, now clean the bottom of the three plates too.
before you reinstall the plates look down inside you will see three thin lines of metal,make sure there is no lint or dust on them,reinstall and let set for five min. to allow any windex that might still be wet then turn on low for a couple of min.then go to medium

Does anyone in your house smoke? Could be from cigarettes. I was told by the Ionic Pro Company to clean the blades with rubbing alcohol.

You need to clean all the stainless steel contact points inside the unit, not just the blades. Make sure you unplug the unit before doing this.

My ionic pro did the same, the red light just wouldnt go out, so I looked down the plate opening, (with unit unplugged), and could see one of the wires was broken. (these are the ones you clean by pulling up that plastic tab). I am currently looking for replacement wires, will post my progress. GregV

If the plates are clean, there is nothing wrong with them. They are just 3 strips of metal... they don't even connect to each other unless they are in the unit. NO NEED TO REPLACE THEM.
