If it is an air IONIZER type air cleaner, it may need cleaning itself. Pick up a can of dry air spray for computer keyboards. It's about $4.00 U.S. at Walmart. BE SURE to unplug the unit before spraying it and DO NOT turn the spray can upside down and spray it. You should also let the unit air out for 30 minutes before plugging it back in. This "spray air" used to be R-12 chlorofluorocarbon "Freon" refrigerant before they found that it destroyed the ozone layer. Freon was not flammable and almost indestructible. Now, they use Hydroflourocarbon R-134a refrigerant which is very flammable and ionizer type air cleaners can produce electric sparks during normal operation due to their high internal air ionizing voltages. Also, in either case, if you turn the can upside down and spray it, you will be venting liquid which comes out at sub zero C or F temperatures and can freeze and crack plastic parts or iron ferrite coil cores. good luck.

You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

This appears to be an air filter rather than a Car or Truck, so I moved it!

My Ionic Breeze GP began losing power occasionally but I could shake it and get it to turn back on. It got worse and worse until it would not turn on anymore.

The problem on mine is the micro switch that detects whether the collector plates are inserted or not, so it is part of the safety mechanism. There is a about a one-inch cylindrical piece of plastic on the front of the collector plate handle. This cylinder goes through a hole and pushes on the micro switch (actually a plastic cover over the micro switch).

On mine, it appears that arcing inside the switch caused it to get hot, deforming the plastic a little bit and apparently ruining the inside of the switch.

The following URLs describe the switch, but I have not found a retailer that carries it:

Another of the same model switch is used in the back of the unit to detect whether the rear cover is on (over the UV bulb).

If I cannot find a replacement, I am thinking of either bypassing the bad switch entirely or swapping the switch from the back. Either way would defeat a safety feature so it's probably not to be recommended, but I consider the sacrificing the switch for the back cover to be introducing only limited risk, so I might take that route if I have to.

depends on where you are and when you want the water treated. for camping and hiking , water purification tablets are quick and easy methods and one of the best ( used by the armed forces ) if you want it for home use running the water through a ceramic filter then through an ultra-violet purifier will get rid of all the bugs for larger volumes an osmosis purifying system as used by the water treatment works in council water supplies is best so you need to specific as to when you want the water pure. boiling water is ineffective as it concentrates the bugs and doesn;t kill them all, however distilling water by boiling off and collecting the steam back to water separates the bugs
