Question about Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP SI730 Air Purifier

Open Question

Purple spark and loud noise

I know there is a post about this already but I've tried everything that the previous post solutions has recommended. I've tried cleaning the front and back grill, the metal rods, the two metal strings (corona wire I think). Everytime I place everything back in I can see the spark and hear the noise still. The spark seems to come from the three little metal things that stick out on the bottom of the inside. They are located right under the metal rods. To see them you have take off the front grill and the metal rods. Can anyone help?

Can you add a prefilter to an oreck truman cell to grab the larger dust particles and decrease the zapping?a humidifier in the room helps but when the furnace is going it can still be often.


it should have a prefilter already on it. they have a screen looking filter that goes on the front of the cell. If you don't have one you need to get one. You should also have a charcoal filter on the back side of the cell, if not then you'll need to get one of those also, the charcoal is for odors and not for filtering dust. Putting any other type of filter in front of the cell will just be turning this into a filter type cleaner and will be defeating the purpose of the reusable Trueman cell. You may as well just buy a different cleaner if you don't mind buying new filters instead of cleaning the cell. I would recommend cleaning the cell every 2 weeks to keep it working properly. This will also keep it from snapping, if yours is snapping it's already too dirty and needs to be cleaned, if it's snapping right after it's cleaned then you have a plate that is arcing in the Trueman Cell, I have posted a fix for the ProSheild Models to stop the cell plates from arcing.

Hybrid GP will not operate consistently

Hello Judy D.

 

As you might be aware the blinking LED indicates that a fault has been detected.

 

Check that the ionizing wires supports have not started to 'track' this will appear as a hair-like discolouration across the supports surface. The 'track' may be very thin and hard to spot.

 

This can be caused by dirt that has started to burn into the surface by arcing.

 

If you find any 'tracks' then try to clean them off with a mild solvent like pure alchohol.

 

Another thing to try is to run the unit in total darkness and look into the grills to see if there is any arcing or sparking happening.

 

Let us know the outcome.

Do not know what to do when the service required light is on on a Alpine LIVING AIR XL15 IONIC AIR PURIFIER OZONE XL 15. How do I service it?


Hi JoAnn,

Alpine purifiers need periodic cleaning, as dust and dirt from air moving through the unit is electrostatically deposited on internal components; enough build-up can cause short-circuits and diminished peformance. The ozone-discharge plates need to be cleaned monthly, and the inside wiped down at that time. The lint trapscreen on the back also needs to be cleaned (I use hot water in my kitchen sink with the spray-nozzle). I recommend an old toothbrush dipped in household ammonia for scrubbing the plates, and an old sock dampened with ammonia for wiping the inside spaces. The ammonia fumes can be unpleasant, so if you can do this outside or in garage, do so. Also, rinse the plates thoroughly to remove any ammonia residue. Just make sure the discharge plates are COMPLETELY BONE-DRY before putting them back in, otherwise, you risk shorts, and potential damage to the plate. Use the toothbrush without the ammonia (preferably dry) to dust-off the sensor in back that triggers the "service required" light. Iif it's like the ones I've worked-on, it should be connected to another light inside, but I recommend checking your owners manual to help identify the location and description of the sensor.

About once a year, a thorough cleaning (using a brush to get the accumulated gunk out of the nooks and crannies) is recommended). This involves disconnecting the fan leads and (if so-equipped) the needle-point ionier after removing the four screws through the bottome holding the chassis in-place. If you're not comfortable working with wiring and spade-terminals, you may want to use a keyboard vaccuum brush (long-necked tube with a brush on the end available in office-supply stores and the like) to reach in instead.

If this helps, please rate me... thanks!

I have an older model Flair unit. I took it apart to try and give it a good cleaning and noticed that there was a small glass bulb-looking part with one of the thin wires was broken. Of course the other...


It's attached to the pulse radio-wave ionizer. It comes on when the unit is on to show the radio wave is working. It's not needed and I've never seen a replacement but Radio Shack could probably help you replace it if you wanted.

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.

Unit likely had large partical like dog or cat hair cross over cell, Unlplug and remove pre-filter & cell.

The unit has a timer that knows when power has been removed & front grille has been taken off by 2 micro switches in back of front grille that is connected to the units control board.

While you are there remove pre-filter & Cell, if ok and no debris is found & theres no need to wash, wait 10 to 15 minutes replace all & plug back in.

You should see the LED display flashing Clean Cell & Cell button flashing, hold Cell button in at least 3 seconds this may take longer to reset. Unit should turn back on.

This condition has happened to my 2 units on occasion even though I had washed the cell only a week or two previously.

The unit will turn off if a cell overload is detected by way of large static discharge. If I know the cell is clean, I just unplug the unit & take the front grille off for 15 minutes then & replace it plug back in & reset & all goes back to normal operation.

The ozone plates need to be cleaned monthly to work effectively. You can get an owner's manual for free from the manufacturer's website, it's at:

http://www.ecoquestintl.com/support/US50300_Living_Air_Owners_Manual.pdf

The manual has a description of the type and frequency of cleaning of various parts of your air purifier. Hope this helps!
