It probably doesn't matter about finding a replacement grid since Sharper Image recalled the units after losing a lawsuit with Consumer Reports because they couldn't prove they clean the air. They had to pay all legal fees forcing the company into chapter 11.

Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to release a report on all ionizers. Their decision could affect the sales of any ionizers in the U.S. Even EPA data shows that not only do they not work but there harmful to use.

Red lkight is on where yellow light indicates you need to clean?? Mike [email protected]


Try cleaning the collection grid. If that doesn't work, try blowing out the dust inside the unit. (Air compressor if you have it would be helpfull.) Otherwise you may have to just buy another grid. Not that many online try ebay.

I own an Ionic Breeze Quadra unit. It has been working fine and I really like it because it removes bad odors from the house. Mine has just started making a hissing noise. Any suggestions? Thanks


hi,
Sparking, popping, hissing or crackling sounds coming from your Ionic Breeze air cleaner are all signals that it's time to clean your machine. Once you've cleaned the collection grids inside the Quadra, the disruptive sounds will disappear


how to clean

Turn off and unplug your Ionic Breeze Quadra.Grasp the horizontal handle on top of the air cleaning grids--this is in the very center top of your Ionic Breeze Quadra--and pull the grids straight up out of the casingWipe the metal grids down, inside and out along the entire length, with a clean damp cloth. You may need to use more than one cloth if the grids are very dirty.Go back over the grids with a clean dry cloth to remove any water and remaining dirtPut the grids aside on a clean, dry surface and grasp the body of the main Ionic Breeze casing unit in both hands.Flip the casing unit upside down, then right side up, five or six times. You should hear a small bead sliding back and forth as you do this. The bead is cleaning interior elements concealed in the casing; if you don't hear it, your unit may be in need of repair.Place the casing unit back on its base, orient the grids so that the handle slopes in the same direction as the top of the air purifier, then carefully slide them back down into the machine.

Need replacement grids for Sharper Image Model S1637 since clips at bottom have broken off of grid.


Replacement grids have been posted to ebay. You can replace the complete unit for $45 on ebay so that would probably be a better solution. The last grid I purchased on ebay for similar was around $20.

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.

Ionic breeze quadra not functioning


I had the same problem and could not find an answer anywhere. So here's what I figured out. The small wires running from top to bottom just inside the cover are your problem. Not the metal grid with plates that you can remove. The buzzing sound you heard is the resistance one or more of the wires is causing. The resisitance tells the pc board that your grid must be wet and therefore the unit goes into drying mode. I replaced my small wires and my unit is working better than ever. The wire is .005 diameter( important so that you keep the same resistance flowing to the pc board) and can be purchased at any good suppy house. I have since repaired another unit with an even simplier fix. I took the unit into a dark room and then turned it on. Watching the grid I could see the wire arching that was causing the resistance. Unplugged the unit, turned it over and with a flat head screw driver pushed the wire off its base connedtion. Turned the unit right side up and removed the wire from its top support. The unit works fine without the troubled wire. Hope this helps.

Sharper Image Hybrid GP Germicidal Air Purifier SI724 NO POWER


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.

Stopped filtering dust...


I just got one from some one that wash trashing it because it quit. The problem with this one was a bad power regulating transistor. $1.69 at Radio Shack. I also found that the board that supplies the voltage to the grid had several bad solder joints on it. Take the bottom/stand off: four screws. Take the next 4 screws you see out then the bottom should come off. The small board next to the motor energizes the grids. The transistor on that board needed to be re solderd. Also the flimsy black wire was loose too. Hope this helps.
