Question about Honeywell HT-800 Table Fan

1 Answer

The fan has hair and dust trapped inside so it can't turn correctly... it takes awhile to start up and has trouble turning. Is there any way to take it apart to clean it?

Just had the exact same problem. there's 6 screws to remove along the back side of the fan grill, 4 of them are philip and 2 of them torx. don't know why they didn't just make them all the same! once the screws are out, you can take off the faceplate. you can then clean most of the fan, however it will be difficult to clean the area near the motor.

Tip

Cleaning your Motherboard effectively


Motherboard cleaningWhy? Dust and especially particles of cigarette smoke can build up and corrode circuitry causing various problems such as computer lockups
Note: When inside the computer take the necessary ESD precautions and try to avoid unplugging any cables or other connections.
Procedure: Our recommendation when cleaning the motherboard from dust, dirt, or hair is to use compressed air. When using compressed air, hold it in the up-right position; otherwise, it is possible chemicals may come out of the container that could damage or corrode the Motherboard or other component within the computer. Also, ensure when using compressed air that you always blow the dust or dirt away from the motherboard, or out of the case.
Another good alternative to compressed air is to use a portable battery powered vacuum that can effectively remove the dust, dirt, and hair from the motherboard completely and prevent it from getting trapped within the case. However, do not use a standard electricity powered vacuum as it can cause a lot of static electricity that can damage the computer. When using the vacuum it is vital that you stay a couple inches away from the motherboard and all other components to help prevent contact as well as to help prevent anything from being sucked into the vacuum. Ensure that you do not remove any small components with the vacuum such as jumpers.
Tip: When cleaning the inside of the case also look at any fans and/or heat sinks. Dust, dirt, and hair collects around these components the most.

Why does wii u turn off while playing games


It is more then likely overheating. Check that the fan isn't blocked by hair and/or dust. Blow compressed air into the fan to clear anything that could be causing it not to function correctly. Also, make sure you can hear the fan operating while the unit is on to make sure it has not failed.

You should never leave a gaming console on the floor due to buildup of dust/hair and cause it to overheat. This also applies to leaving it in a confined space as it will not have enough air available to expel the heat it creates while running.

COMPAQ SG3000 The PC is making a very loud whirring sound. I have googled this and it appears that it may be the hard drive or the fan. I have taken the back off the pc and it is full with dust!!!! Also.....


First of all use a vacuum and a soft brush to take away all the dust from the inside. Take care not to remove any connections. After this use a blowgun (if available) to clean the dust from difficult places. The power supply and the CPU blower tend to have more dust that you can imagine. Alternative you can use air under pressure but you have to wait some minutes after the cleaning for the humidity to calm, otherwise you may destroy the pc. Start up the pc and check for results.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Roomba appears to be working fine, goes over the whole house with no trouble, but then house is still dirty and no dirt is in his dirt bin.


if there is dust in the filter and none in dirt bin check to see if brushes are turning, you can do this by running the roomba with bin out, if not turning clean thoroughly, remove yellow tips on ends to check for trapped hair, replace brushes and turn them manually in one direction a few times and then run roomba again, you may need to do this a couple of times

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", to remove the dust, because the dust is acting as a layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your computer.

Reload the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Start your laptop, and check that the fans inside the notebook computer are pushing air out of the exhaust-vents. If not, the fan(s) have failed, and you need a professional computer technician to disassemble your computer, and fix the fans.

Hair in filter cleaned the filter out ran it again and more hair and dust


Sounds like hair is trapped in the machine.
Start with checking all the inspection valves, take off the sole plate and check to see if the brush bar compartment is not blocked.

A/c turns on for 10 minutes


If it was start up capacitors, it wouldn't start initially every time. Do me/you, a favor, and remove your filter inside (return air) , and if it's a ducted system, remove entire plastic cover inside. Take a flashlight & look way up where filter covers in hole & take a good look at cooling fins on evaporator (front of AC). Look for restrictions such as dust etc. That dust will turn just like mud on there due to condensation mixing with dust, and block off flow which could cause unit to freeze up & compressor to kick out. If your real ambitious, and find lots of dust there, taking cover off roof unit would be next, and check same there at back end (condenser) coils & cooling fins.Get back to me after inspection from inside. Could still be electrical but lets check that it has proper maintenance & best chance to work properly by doing this first.

Fan


I would advise taking the fan cover off and the blade off of the motor and cleaning it. (Make sure its unplugged when you do this.) Maybe hair and dust has gathered around the motor and the blade. This would make the motor have to work harder, especially if stuff is wound around the motor. Good Luck.
