Who repairs the sharper image ionic breeze GP
This is a repair that someone I know didafter reading a post on the net.....regarding Quadra repairs....and here is a link for repairs....its all one link....so type it into your browser or paste it.....
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.

My wife wanted me to take it apart to clean it
You can replace the fuse by soldering a new one into place -- it's a standard fuse, just match the amp rating of old to new.
Chances are though, after you do this, it will blow again. So, there's a good chance the unit is kaput.
I have extensive experience with these units to the point of even replacing the high-voltage field wires (the two fine wires which run from top to bottom) with titanium wire. There is no real good way to keep these things running properly -- they're kinda like weed whackers -- inherently problematic.

Ionic breeze wire
I tried the guitar strings, they burned out quickly. The wires that came in the unit are not steel, they are not affected by a magnet. We suspect they may be tungsten or some other type of non ferrous wire. Until we find the right wire, we cannot repair them to last. Any assistance in locating the correct type of wire for use in ionizing air cleaners would be appreciated.
