Question about Sharper Image Hybrid GP (SI724) Air Purifier
Sharper Image Hybrid GP. Unit powers on, goes to Attention Required & then switches to Drying Grid for about 30 min. Then goes back to Attention Required & motor shuts off. If I power off & back on again, it begins the whole cycle all over again. Marilyn

Have you ran the beads along the static wires to clean the grime off? What do you use to clean the grid? AL

Oh there are a lot of known issues! I used to work for sharper image and I believed in this items very much so until mine broke. However after a year I figured out how to fix it. Take the big square collection grid out and the back screen off. Now get you a thick rag and be very careful because there are several tiny wires going up and down. Smaller than dental floss, you need to be very careful because you can either brake them or slice your finger wide open( Under any circumstances I can not be held liable for the information I am giving you try this at your own risk). Now with the towel very gently go up and down each wire like you are polishing a brass pole(once again these wires are thin and can break or cut you). Do this from the back side of the unit and from the inside where the collection grid that you took out sits. Take your time and be thorough, and presto your 400 dollar air cleaner is working again.

You are probably aware that the ionizer uses a very high voltage (at very low current) to function. If you have used a cleaner of some kind on it, you could have made the grid sensitive to moisture.
I would remove the grid again and wash it thoroughly in distilled water to remove any residue that stayed behind, then dry it in warm air before reinstalling it.

SOURCE: I cleaned my air cleaner and now it will not turn back on
When you cleaned your cleaner, you must be gentle with it. Wipe down with a lightly moist cloth or paper towel. make sure you dont shove any grime between the metal cleaning grid and the plastic holding it all together. that can cause lots of problems. Your air purifier probably wont start because of an auto shut off safety feature. Be sure that everything is in its proper place.... make sure hte front grill is fastened on correctly as well as the back grill. if those are not secured properly the unit will not start. also, check that your collection grid is placed all the way inside the unit and wait for the click noise that indicates that its locked in place. at that point the unit should turn on and you can once again enjoy fresh, pure air!

SOURCE: Ionic Breeze Hybrid GP air purifier only 1/2 grid gets dirty.
I have been doing research on this unit. I read that only every other grill is suppose to collect. The remaining grills increase the electrostatic charge making the collection plates, the ones that get dirty more effective. So the bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your unit.

I have cleaned everything according to the instruction manual. I'm not sure what you mean by "ran the beads". I used the appropriate brush - is that what you mean?
