one of the electrodes broke off the botto of one of my towers.

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:

http://www.dicgroup.com/e-pro01-sm.html

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.

Remove the grid assembly.

Remove the 4 screws holding the top on.

Gently remove the top as there are wires connected to it.

Once removed, find the microswitch assembly on the side. There will be 2 green wires going to this assy board (PCB).

Examine the bottom of this board. On both my units, the PCB wascorroded badly on the trace that runs from the center lead to the wireconnection. This will cause the microswitch to quit working.

What I did was soldered a wire from the center contact of themicroswitch (center piece coming through the board. There should be alarge solder pool) to the wire connection at the edge of the board.This just 'goes around' the corroded PCB trace.

Worked fantastic on both ionic breezes and took about 5 minutes for thesecond one. The first one took over 2 hours just to find the problem.

I hope this helps.....good luck...thanks for rating my effort....the Fang.
