Question about Haier HWR08XC1 Thru-Wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Our unit is now 6 years old. I have had a continuing problem with the fan unit rubbing on the enclosure. The only way I have been able to stop this is by partially unscrewing the top screws on the outside of the unit. The problem seems to be getting worse though, now I was forced to put a spacer between the inside and outside frame to force the inside unit away from the fan enclosure.

Is the fan actually hitting or could it be a vibration from the fan being out of balance

Mmv5165bas vent fan will not stop running


Check to see if there's a relay providing power to the fan. If there is, the contacts might be sticking in the closed position. Assuming that this is an over-the-range unit, disconnecting the vent fan completely might not be a good idea as heat/steam from foods cooking on the range would more likely damage the microwave.

MY SHREDDER IS OVERHEATING


Significantly Improve the Manufacturer's Suggested Duty Cycle, from Intermittent Use: ON=6min / OFF=30min to CONTINUOUS USE

ROYAL PX1201

My comments below are addressing these 3 issues:

1 How to permanently fix the motor overheating

2 How prevent motor thermal shut-down

3 How considerably improve the duty cycle


I am sharing this info with you with the hope it may save you some time.
Did purchase this unit from Costco about 6 years ago, in 2010.
This unit is functioning well today except its motor was overhearing and going into automatic thermal shut-down.
The ROYAL PX1201 model # is PCUA: 29127H-FE ; the Lot # 111155925.
Had to open the motor enclosure quite few times for cleanup and cooling.
Note the manufacturer's recommended duty cycle is ON=6min / OFF=30min. Nobody I know has 30min time to babysit a shredder.

In thermal shut-down mode the motor would not turn in any direction.
Today I modified the ROYAL PX1201 by adding an external 12V DC computer fan for motor cooling.
Cut a fan-placement, round, 3.25inch hole into the shredder top, at the upper right of the paper-insert slit: ____O
External, room-air is being forced into the motor-and-gear enclosure at all times, non-stop.
The paper-insert slit provides the hot-air exhaust.
The fan is an ordinary plastic PC fan: 12V DC, 0.12A=120mA, XYZ=72*72*20mm ; diagonal=101mm (hole-to-hole).
Fan cost is around $5.- and the fan power supply was a separate 12V DC adapter.
Did not have time to electrically connect the fan to the shredder's internal power supply.

Today I used the shredder continuously for 8 hours with neither overheating nor thermal shutdown.
Did fill TEN 13-gallon plastic bags with shredded paper / hand compacted confetti.
On average I shredded 6 letter-size, normal thickness pages at a time / per feed, continuous feed for about 8 hours.

I've got a Toshiba 52HM95 that's several years old. It's been making a grinding noise for a while. A few months ago I took the back off to investigate. The problem went away. But, now it's back. I have a...


The grinding noise sounds like it could be the fan blade hitting the housing. Have your verified that it is the fan that is making the noise? Does the fan feel loose or rub the housing when turned? Well you have already purchased another fan and have gone this far so I say continue dis-assembly if it is the fan. If you were looking to get a new TV then get one but don't trash this one. If you repair it you could sell it or give it to a friend/family member. A new 52in HDTV is not that cheap.

My Nutone 8814R motor went out on my ceiling fan and i just ordered a new motor. My question is how do i take out the old one and replace it with the new one. Will it be easy to do myself? Also is there an...


The good news is that this is a relatively easy item to remove and replace, as they make a replacement fan/motor unit (sub assembly) that you can swap out for the old one.

All you need to do is pull down on the trim vent plate and then squeeze the wire retainer clips together to remove the grill/trim.

Once you've done that, you can unplug the fan portion of the exhaust fan unit from the base enclosure. Now simply remove the screw or nut that holds the fan and mounting plate into the enclosure and simply pull it down and pivot it out of the enclosure - you might have to push in on the side of the enclosure where you removed the screw/nut to get the fan and metal plate out of the cabinet.

The replacement fans usually come with a new metal mounting plate that fits many of the older exhaust fans, but if your's looks different or doesn't work, you can remove the fan and install just the fan motore onto your old metal fan mounting plate.

Instructions are typically included in the replacement unit packages. This is also very simple to do with only 2 screws holding the fan onto the mounting plate.

Once you're done, simply hook the edge of the plate back into the fan enclosure and then push it up and fasten the mounting screw/nut onto the plate and plug the fan into the ceiling enclosure and replace the grill plate and you're all set!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

You can get a replacement fan unit at most Big Box home stores (Home Depot or Lowe's) or at an electrical supply house. Just bring the old one with you so you can be certain you get the right one.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

It could be the blower fan is loose and needs to be tightened. If so, and you're handy, shouldn't be too difficult. Depends on the specific design.
