Hi,

Used to clean them when I worked at retail shop and we did sell some used ones. There isnt anything really special that needs be done. Air compressor do work most of the time and a very soft brush. If you do need to use liquids, glass cleaner works fine, just be really sure it is absolutely dry before you turn power on.
If you do hear crackling after it is clean, this likely means either the mesh has a dent or bump into, just straithen it or it may be the glass is fractured,(may be a very tiny almost invisible crack) and you should replace the faulty tube.

Inspect all wires, they might also be cracked. Ozone has a way of wearing things down quite quickly. Use electrical contact cleaner on every prong and connectors
Again, wait for everything to be really dry before connecting power again.

And whatever happens, no matter how curious you may be to locate the crackling, do not look at those tubes while they are powered. UV will injure your eyes.

cheers!

Tks man the manuals online are kinds vague as to what gas to use I guess they ment air lol. Great to hear it from experience I feel safe now;) & prefer to do maintenance myself as u can imagine less ppl involved the better;)

OK. If it can be cleaned with a glass cleaner, you should be safe with iso as well. Although my ionizer doesn’t have a metal screen tube, it does have ceramic plates with metal screen mesh on them, and the company that makes them does recommend using iso tro clean them.

I’ve even used 50%, but my screens are pretty heavy gauge stainless steel.

So be thoughtful of rust and where the iso might want to drip or get things wet.
