In my F50A1066 the capacitors are .022 uF (microfarad) with a 6000V rating. One is blown on my unit and I found a close replacement on Ebay (.02uF with a 16000V rating) for $5.00.

    this is laserwelder again. I replaced those capacitors in my Honeywell air cleaner several years ago and it is still running great. So if you have one that does not work replacing the capacitors may fix it for you. You need to be able to solder and of course you need to turn it off before working on it - there are 1000's of volts inside when it is switched on.

    Add a Commen Probably even better to disconnect the unit before working on it rather than turning it off. Capacitors can also store a charge after it is switched off so short out the capacitors before you touch them. If you don't know what I mean don't try it yourself!

My honeywell electronic air cleaner won't turn on. The furnace is running, the switch is on to the air cleaner and the door is closed tightly. The cells were cleaned and are now dry. With many products...

This could be a tough one to figure out...
Make sure you have power to the unit, this often comes from the furnace and may be only on when the blower is running.
Then check the door switch of the unit.
Some units have pressure senstive switch that will turn on the unit when air is go through it.
Check that if it has one.

Some units have a fuse inside that can blow, check for that also.

Many of these units the power supply just plain fails and you will need to replae it. If you have power going to it and the unit does not owrk then the power supply is bad.

Air Electronic Cleaner - Electronic Whole House Air Cleaner

An electronic air cleaner can improve the indoor air quality as well as the performance of your heating and air conditioning system. That’s why many people are now investing in electronic air cleaners, to treat the air in their homes and minimize pollutants. Polarization technology now also effectively removes mold spores, bacteria, smoke and carcinogenic particles that other filter systems will not easily stop.

If you or someone in your family has health issues that relate to air quality, then an electronic air cleaner is the way to go. If you are installing a new heating or air conditioning system, then make sure you have an electronic air cleaner installed with the new system. If you have an existing hot air heat or air conditioning system, then you can have an electronic air cleaner installed in the old system. The new filter can be easily installed in most hot air heating systems.

An electronic air cleaner can clean up many bad things in the air that normal filters will not catch. For best results make sure to clean the plates often. The effectiveness of the air cleaner will degrade as the build up of dirt accumulates on the plates. Clean plates will give much better results. Electronic air cleaners can be effective in removing smoke and odors also. The only downsides to an electronic air cleaner that I have found are the noise (snapping or popping) and the creation of ozone in some instances. The noise you will get used to after awhile. The ozone will be stronger if the air cleaner is too large for the building. If it is a problem, either speed up the air flow or install a smaller air cleaner.

When installed into your home’s heating and cooling system, an electronic air cleaner traps and filters up to 99% of airborne particles passing through the system to make sure cleaner air is distributed to all rooms in your home. When this air goes through an electronic air cleaner, the pre-filter traps the majority of the large particles. The particles that are too small to be trapped in the pre-filter are charged positive, and then attracted to negatively charge plates.

This advanced air cleaner captures microscopic impurities like dust, smoke and smog particles in addition to larger particles like mold spores and cat dander. Plus, you can say goodbye to monthly filter replacements by simply washing the air cleaner cells in your dishwasher or sink. If you have pets, smokers, allergy or asthma suffers in your home, you may want to think about a whole-house electronic air cleaner.

Electronic air cleaners overall are a great way to filter the air that you breathe and make sure that the quality of the air in your home is the best quality.

I have an LG 11,800 BTU SLEEVE AC that needs to have it's RUN CAPACITOR replaced. How much would this cost to repair or to order the part

If you are able to unsolder the unit you can probably pick up a capacitor at Radio Shack or Electronic Shop. Just buy one that has the same capacity.

With the Air set to onor auto, i get power to the unit but it will not run, i hear like a starting noice but the fan will not move

Allow the motor an hour to cool off. Then try to restart via normal method PLUS try spinning the motor by hand. If the motor starts to run normally for a few minutes, disconnect the power, remove the capacitor, and take the capacitor to your local HVAC parts warehouse to have them test it for you. If the capacitor tests "failed", replace the capacitor. If the capacitor tests "good", you will need to replace the motor (replace the capacitor when you replace the motor).
Hope you find this to be very helpful to you, moving forward. :-)

I've never tried that, but a good electronic shop might be able to do that for you; however, it's a risk.
You can also try to contact the manufacturer for a list of their recognized service providers. It's possible the board is available to their certified distributors, dealers, service centers.

Good Luck.

I have a honeywell smartfit but it keeps coming up with a F4 error

I had exactly the same problem. F4 code says the control valve has jammed --- but it hadn’t.

I ended up having to swap out the room controller and the base unit (I bought the pair since it was winter and I couldn’t ‘eff’ about)

On investigating (well, you have to don’t you?) I could find no obvious fault but did notice that a large electrolytic capacitor was across the actuator motor.

Since these things work by reversing the supply polarity to the motor to drive the actuator one way and the other it strikes me as strange that a polarity sensitive component, one that must be always connecter positive to positive, is used in the way that it is.

Bottom line, tough luck, mate. Replace the units.

Durabrand rb-22j1a wine cooler----no power to unit at all after being plugged in, all fuses are good.

I had this problem, no power, no light. It was the power supply output fuse. It appears to not be blown, but a continuity check across the fuse shows an open. Unsolder and replace the 5A, 250V fuse with some locally available Radio Shack parts (holder - 270-739, fuse 270-1071). Access to the power supply board is on the rear, remove the screws on the plastic plate, including the one hidden under the QC sticker. While you are in there, clean the fan and the aluminium fins on the heat sink (cools the Peltier device).

If your fuses are not blown, look at the electrolytic capacitors (the black or blue round metal cans with the aluminium X on the top) to see if they are bulging. Replace any that are bad (a common problem in switching power supplies).

Hope this helps,

I've got a Honeywell Environcare Elite filtration system on my furnace. How is the best way to clean these two units that slide into place and provide electrostatic cleaning? Can I soak in a laundry sink...

Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaners remove airborne particles as small as .03 Microns. To put that in perspective the smallest particle you can see with the human eye is 10 microns
Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaners have far more collection area to collect and store airborne particles than any other electronic air cleaner on the market.

Maintenance requires cleaning every two to three months. Located inside the unit are two pre-filters, which need to be rinsed off. The two electronic cells require a good rinse followed by washing them in your dishwasher.

Great for allergy sufferers.
