Question about Honeywell Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Due to excess dust my honeywell commercial grade stopped working. I sprayed a lubricant near the fan mechanism to no avail. I also tried a can of compressed air to blow out the motor housing. This happened yrs. ago, and with a hair dryer's use I got it to work. Now, however the blades rotor mechanism just won't turn. I would appreciate any input as I DO NOT and CANNOT take this apart. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

The only thing is your motor has gone out due to bearing failure, and seizing up on the shaft and hitting the stator.

Why does my Nordictrac c2300 start and stop?

It could be because it is overheating due to the fact that the floor belt is too dry and the motor is labouring hard to spin the floor belt. When was the last time you lubricated the base of the floor belt (the flat base where the floor belt slides on)? A couple of little sprays of Silicone Lubricant should ease the motor workload as the floor belt rolls on. If you're a big person, the excess weight also tempts to dry the floor belt quicker and if you're running on it while the home is being heated in winter of during warm summer days, or you are training on carpeted or linty areas, all the excess heat and dust dries the floor belt faster and need to be lubricated more often. Lift the floor belt and feel with your hands if there is any lubrication. A wet feel means it is lubricated, while a dry feel or sticky hand as you move your hand left and right means it is dry. Dry belts are the blame of 80-90% of motor failure and or seizures due to lack of care and maintenance. Lubricate it once per month. If you don't like spraying Silicone lubricant directly under the floor belt, do this; find a lint-less rug such as a kitchen drying cloth and go outside the house, spray the Silicone lubricant on the cloth to lightly soak it and then go to the treadmill, lift the floor belt and apply the wet cloth evenly on the base until you believe it is lubricated enough to make the rolling of the belt with ease. Run it for half a minute at slow speed (walking pace) before you can safely use it for running or jogging, etc.

Hp proliant server is shutting down in every 4-5 hours due to cpu over hitting. its internernel health indicator on chassis is red & externel is Amber. One fan of one smps is not moving.

Heat up is mainly due the clogged heat sink and fan etc, which requires to be cleaned. It is strongly recommended that you clean the heat sink etc yourself or seek help from authorized professional at the earliest to avoid any damages to the PC.
If the system fan is not working properly, it may be due to dust inside the fan. This could be due to faulty fan or it may be stuck due to dust etc. In this case, using a compress air for cleaning would be helpful. This will result in heating up of the system and the processor/ graphic unit may burn. Try to clean the fan. You may use Compressed Air can to remove the dust etc. Cleaning and lubricating liquid available commercially can be used to smooth the inside rotating parts of the fa. Also, do check the fan power connection. Give it a try and try to make sure the fan is running. (if not it needs replacement). If you find it faulty, you may find and replace the fan by removing the old/ faulty fan by removing the 4 screws and installing the new one.

Also, make sure that the PC is placed in a well ventilated environment and the air flow the the PC is correct.
The procedure is very simple and I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!
Thanks for using Fixya!

How do you clean the table fan?

You can use a brush with assistance from high pressure compressed air- from a Air compressor or if you reverse the vaccum cleaner ports available in some models.
While the air is blown brush to clean the grill and blades. Use a face mask so as not to inhale the fine dust. Finally clean using a degreaser spray like WD40.

Hello i have a hv-180 18" when i plug it in

Yes. These fans have thermal protection in the motor, as well. The thermal fuse or thermal breaker may be bad.

Treadmill stopping and grinding noise

ALWAYS UNPLUG & Remove the hood or motor cover. There's probably anywhere from 2 to 8 screws. *Now vacuum the dust from around the motor and drive mechanisms. What you can't get to with the vacumn, use a small cloth or brush. A clean motor doesn't become clogged and overheat. *After you have cleaned around the motor, look for any grease fittings, these are usually found on commercial grade units, but your's might have some also. For those of you who have never seen one, they are about the size of a pencil eraser and have a hole in the end. they are usually found on bearings. If you don't have a grease gun you can buy a small gun and grease at your local auto parts store for less than $10.00.If your unit is chain driven, clean the chain of excess dust, and apply a small amount of grease to the chain, also grease the drive chain and elevation chain as necessary. Use white lithium grease if available.Check all drive belts for wear, look for cuts and nicks, and replace as needed.

*Raise the belt and inspect the underside for wear. If it looks worn or burned you need to replace the belt.

*Wipe the deck and underside of the belt with a soft cloth, should lubricate the walking deck at least every 6 months with ilicone spray or gel or wax. Check your owners manual for what the manufacturer recommends.

Repair of Your Treadmill

Walking belt moves, but there is a loud grinding noise.

Loosen the belt and see if the noise goes away, if it does you may have a bad front roller. Sometimes you can spray the bearing in the roller with a lubricant like WD40 and this will solve the problem, but you may need to replace the roller.If the noise does not go away then the motor bearings are probably bad and you will have to replace the motor.

there should be just some sort of snaps, or hooks holding the guard on. I have yet to see a fan that doesn't. but if there is any, take the clips off of the guard, and clean the blades.

I am looking for a fan control knob for this unit at our hospital

Radio Shack carries many types of control knobs. They may have one with the shaft configuration you need or get one with a set screw that you can tighten onto the shaft.

Patton 1887 fan blades wont turn

I've had an 1887 since the 90s -- great fan. I have to say that FixinFax (Solution 1 above) probably didn't try to take his unit apart. My blade has stopped rotating several times over the years and I always got it going again by myself. I'm no whiz, just your average amateur handyman. In fact I am fixing the motherbleeper right now because in a week where the heat is 100 degrees it chose to slow down and stop.

Eventually it sucks enough dust into the axle housing so you have to take the motor mechanism apart and clean it. It's not terribly complicated, but you have to note how the electrical and mechanical parts go back together before disassembling. It's a little tricky to get all the housing parts to line up level again, you may have to try a couple times till the blade rotates freely. Wipe out all the dust and gunk buildup. Lubricate the axle with oil, or I just spray with WD-40. Then reassemble.

The only thing I have had to replace is the on-off knob, since it's plastic and it split. Just get a universal knob from your local hardware store.

I owna honeywell commercial grade floor fan HV180. How do i clean it? I cnnot seem to get it apart.

The front wire grating has hooks all around the edge that latch onto the rear grating. You need at least two screwdrivers, blades or thin & stiff shims to pry half the hooks off. Do this by inserting your shims between the front and rear grates, on either side of a hook. Then, lever your shims such that the rear grate warps enough to free a hook and let it pass in front. (Note: this IS difficult; the first hook will not want to clear the rear grate. It helps to have an extra pair of hands, and/or another object to temporarily keep the first hook seperated. It may also be possible to start with three shims and clear two hooks in the beginning). Continue clearing the hooks in a consecutive fashion (they're progressively easier) until half of them are off, at which point the front grate should come off using a little muscle. A couple notes: if available, a plastic shim is preferable over a metal one because it shouldn't damage the nice finish as much (alternatively, wrap your shims in cloth). It is NOT necessary to remove the whole fan cage from the stand to do this. Expect the reverse process to be equivalently challenging. Please wear safety glasses in case your shim breaks or slips. Lastly, good luck if you try to lubricate the shaft. I've tried multiple substances, but day-long blowing continually dries out the lubricant.

Fan stopped working

It's possibly a lubrication problem. I can't seem to keep mine lubricated, so good luck with yours.
