Hi my old Honeywell 13520 has acquired a periodic squeal. I am sure it is a motor issue. Any way to tune up these little motors? (Brushes, etc..)

Usually if the motor is squealing, the bearings are dry no lubrication and worn. If you have oil ports you can oil it and quiet it down for a while. Most motors now have self lubricated or oil impregnated bearings, which you can't lubricate. It costs as much for somebody to replace the bearings, as it does for a new motor. Most people replace the motor.

I have considerably extended the life of several of these Honeywell HEPA filter units by dripping light oil onto the fan shaft (Turn the unit so that the motor is below the fan, allowing the oil to run down into the shaft bearings).

"3-in-1" makes an inexpensive oil dispenser (including oil) having a pull-out tube that allows you to get close to the shaft thru the grillwork.

What is this burning smell from my Honeywell air purifier


am sorry to disappoint you, once this condition is reached, it means the motor windings have overheated and your motor needs to be replaced, This is the only best thing to do to rectify this situation. This indicates that the insulation covering the wire used to make the winding of the motor has been cooked by the overheating and it is shorting out ,THIS WILL CAUSE THE MOTOR CATCH FIRE.
Please unplug the unit and have the motor replaced or buy a new unit for your safety.

Honeywell 703 central vacuum seems very hot after using


David
I recently purchased the same unit and had the same issue. I have since received a replacement and realized where the problem was for me. when Honeywell packages the unit for shipment they place all the extra parts including the muffler inside the canister. If the box is inverted in the shipping process than all those items create pressure on the filter/bag that seals the dirt canister from the suction side of the motor. In my case the bag was damaged/torn from the items inside during shipment and I didn't realize it. The motor then sucks a lot of hair, dirt and debris into it's cooling blades causing extra load when it turns. In my case it was extreme enough excess load that it overheated the brushes and covered everything in black soot. So...if it runs hot i suggest you inspect the bag/filter for holes. best of luck ..it worked for me

I want to change filters. please help


Hi and welcome to DixYa, I am Kelly

The only two parts requiring any service are the activated carbon pre-filter and the HEPA filter. No tools are needed. To change either filter, disassemble the unit as shown.
1. Loosen the carrying handle by turning it counterclockwise and lift filter cage cover from unit.
2. Lift HEPA filter and activated carbon pre-filter from the base.
3. Remove the fasteners from the activated carbon pre-filter and remove it from the HEPA filter cartridge.
4. Replace filter(s) as needed, and discard used filters.
5. Wrap the activated carbon pre-filter around the HEPA filter cartridge and secure it with the fasteners provided

We have model 11502 air purifier. Recently turned it on and it ran for a few minutes and then stopped. Motor sounded fine- no squealing, didn't slow down before it went off- just stopped like it was...


Yes there is a thermal cutoff that will shut the motor off for a period of time to protect it from getting to hot. If this is what happened after 20-30 mins. the motor should come back on and run again. If it does I would try to clean motor as best I could using a soft brush, vacumn, and blow out with air if possible. Clean fan of f as best you can to help motor run cooler.Hope this helps.Thank you

My honeywell air purifier is emmiting an awful


Mine quit too... The led screen went blank so I changed the battery. Now it does nothing. I totally disassembled it as the fan was turning stiffly.(should spin very easilly) The grease in the end bearing was stiff. I washed the gummy grease off the shaft and reoiled with synthetic oil. Your smell is probably motor windings overheating. I disassembled the electronic control and was disgusted to see that there is a glass fuse soldered to the circuit board. I believe the only reason for this fuse is to cause us consumers to needlessly replace otherwise good equipment. (It cost more to pay a repairman to replace the hidden fuse than to purchase a new unit)The fuse is not blown. At least this fuse actually looks lide a fuse unlife the stealth fuses most electronics have hidden in them. I can not obtain a wireing diagram on my 17005 unit but it has a black box inside behind the control panel. It looks like a small start capacitor, but it has a temp rating on it of 70*C. I suspicion it is a single use over heat safety which triggered when my motor got hot due to stiff bearings. I refuse to play their game and purchase a new air cleaner. I love this one... So, if I can not determine what that little black box is, I am going to bypass all the crappy electronics and just drill a hole on top by the handle and install a hi/lo/off manual switch directly to the motors wire hasness. This machine will never give me problems ever again, and if I oil the motor every couple of years with synthetic (Ander oil) this unit WILL last me for the rest of my life...

We have this air filter for about 8 years and we have 2 of the filters and wash one while the other is set to be washed. We use bleach to kill the bacteria. They are ready though to be thrown away.
