SOURCE: Ionic Breeze Quadra won't turn on

Okay, after working on my Ionic Breeze Quadra I have fixed it. My problem was it wouldn't turn on even though the fins were clean.

1. Unplug
2. Turn the machine upside down (there are 4 screws holding the bottom stand on) remove the screws
3. once bottom is off there are 2 screws sideways helping the hold the 2 sides together. Remove those 2 screws.
4. Turn the machine uprgiht and remove the middle fins (the ones you clean)
5. Remove the 4 screws that are deep in the 4 holes when you look down inside (you can't see the screws, I had to feel for them with a phillips head narrow screwdriver)

(it will be easier if your screwdriver has magnetic head for next step.)

6. after removing the 4 screws gently work lose the top (part that has the little lights and turn on push switch)

7. turn the breeze on its side, you will find about 5 or 6 tiny screws holding the two sides of the outside louver case together. Remove all these screws. You will be thankful for the magnetic end, I have small fingers and still had a problem catching the little screws.

8. You don't want to remove both sides, just one side is fine.

9. Being careful of the wires (I left that side alone) I worked from the wire free side and using a bottle of rubbing alcohal and lots and lots of q-tips I gentle cleaned off all the gunk on all the little metal pieces at the bottom of the breeze (on the inside where the wires are). Clean as good as you can, you will find the metal pieces covered with what looks like tar but it comes off with the alcohal.

10. Using a can of 'canned air' like you'd use for a computer, gently blow the rest of the breeze parts getting all the dust away but being careful not to damage the electronics. (there are a lot of little computer boards). I didn't find any dust in the electrical parts in the very bottom of the breeze, just above where the fins are and some at the top where the controls are.

11. I cleaned the 1/2 I took completely off with some rubbing alcohal, gets that **** off pretty good but didn't mess with the side with the wires, just blew the dust out, gently cleaned a bit and on the outside.

12. To put back together, first I gently put the outer middle pieces together and then gently put the control top back on and replaced those 4 screws. Then I put the 10 or 12 tiny screws back into the middle, then the 2 screws in the bottom sides and 4 screws putting the stand back on. I stood it up, plugged it in (make sure its dry) and turned it on and the light came on and it is working great.

I've had mine for 3 years so I think they occasionally need a thorough cleaning. Except for the canned air I bought nothing else. Everyone has rubbing alcohal and q-tips in their homes. When I first started I didn't know how to dismantle it and tried to clean the inside with long q-tips but it was too hard. Those little metal pieces in the bottom make some sort of connection to the fins we pull out and clean so I guess they need good contact.

I hope I've helped all of you with the problem of the Ionic Breeze Quadra and I suspect any other iconic breeze type machine by sharper image pretty much comes apart the same way and may have the same problems. I don't know how to post this so that everyone can see it as a general solution. Maybe you guys at FixYa can help with that. --- Harry Potter Without the Wand (and a female to boot!)

SOURCE: Describe your Sharper Image Professional Plus?

Warranty on these units expired on the 30th of May, 2008 when the company's assets were acquired and liquidated by Hilco Consumer Capital, Gordan Brothers, and Bluestar Alliance. All warranties became void with the bankrupt status.

With regard to the unit that you cleaned, I am assuming that you cleaned it the usual way you always have and it is now making a statical noise or a vibrating kind of noise, correct?

While the unit is off, take out the insert, pick up the unit and turn it upside down. You will hear some beads moving from the elevated end moving towards the bottom. Turn it upside down again and let the beads move to the bottom again. After doing this a few more times turn it upright and put the insert back in. You just cleaned the static lines. Turn the unit back on and see if the noise is still present. If so, try cleaning the insert again and after drying, see if the noise is still present. It is usually some dirt present somewhere that causes the noise to persist. If you have completed everything and the noise still persists you need a new insert which you can get on ebay.

Sharper Imaage Ionizers

Ionized air purification systems have been proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air. These reports have been published by Consumer Reports as well as the EPA. Sharper Image filed a lawsuit against Consumer Reports and lost. They were ordered to pay Consumer Reports legal bills as well.

Sharper Image issued a recall on all Ionic Breeze Ionizers and filed for Chapter 11 at the same time.

Ionizers have been proven to create an ozone that is harmful to anyone with breathing problems.

Here is a link to the EPA report

Here is an article from CNN.com about The Sharp Image

Support for Ionic Breeze isn't possible since Shaper Image has recalled the product.

Your best bet to keep the air clean in your house is to use a hepa filtration system.

Sharper image quadra-professional series stopped working

Sharper Image has discontinued the product after Consumer Reports ran a test on ionizers.  Sharper Image couldn't prove they cleaned the air and had to pay all legal fees forcing the company into Chapter 11.  They recalled the items as well but couldn't honor the checks.
EPA data has proven that in some environments they can be harmful to use.
Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to issue a report by the end of the year.  It's possible that sales of all ionizers will be gone by next year.

Sharper image ailent air purifier front grill broke

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.
