Hello, I recently had a scary incident happen to me. I had one of these
"Sharper Image Ionic Breeze" air cleaner's in my office room. It was about
18 months old and it was turned on most of the time. I carefully followed
the maintenaince instructions and did everything by the book.
I happened to be at home at the time. (thank god) and came downstairs to a
strong smell of burning plastic. It was so strong I had to open the
windows.. At first I thought it was my computer burning up since its in the
same room..but it wasnt. The smell was coming from the Ionic Breeze. I
immediately took the cord out, continued to air out my house... and took the
thing apart to see what could of went wrong.
I took a picture of it -
It doesnt look like much there, but I believe it was a couple of capacitors
that burnt out.
My question is... if I wasnt home, is it possible my house could of burnt
down? Because the burning smell kept getting worse and worse.
any info would be much appreciated.
