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.

My heat unit has been turning off and on repeatedly and at the same time a strong burning smell comes from the vent. Is my heat element going out? Unit is not very old. I checked the filter and its clean.


Have you checked the duct tube that connects to the back of the dryer and goes outside? If it is full or clogged it could cause a problem. Also if you take off the back panel (unplug first) and take off the metal shroud that covers the fan, I found a ton of junk at the bottom that had bypassed my lint trap. Finally, you may need to clean out your dryer from inside after you take off the back panel. Mine was full of dust bunnys and one of these may have gotten into the heater coils and burned.

My dryer drum will not turn...."how to change your dryer belt"


There are many styles and different models of dryers but the one thing they all have in common is the dryer has a belt that turns the drum.In the procedure below we will show you how to take apart your dryer,change your belt,and show you the correct threading of your belt. Here is a typical Kenmore dryer idler pulley(it has a plastic wheel on it) motor/pulley (the pulley is attached to the backside of the motor) and the belt configuration.Note the picture below.

Each different model dryer also has a different lint trap location. This location will have a bearing on how your dryer is taken apart and how to change your belt.

Note the location of your lint trap and choose the correct video on how to take your dryer apart. There are two different locations,on top,and in the door.

Jilbere Porcelain Series Hair Dryer.the blower doesnt work anymore,it happens when I was drying my hair.The motor smells normal not burned and I already check buttons for reset and no luck.


On the end there shouldbe a vent which houses the fan you should be able to open this by twisting ? Chech to see if there is hair/fluff/dust blocking this if it's not able to move the motor won't have anything to keep it cooled resulting in smelling burning as the caught up hair fluff and dust burn hope this helps :-)

Kenmore dryer makes roaring oise when the drum turns


I have the same problem. I thought originally it was the seal around the drum but we pinpointed it to the fan motor. We think there is something wrapped around the fan motor or the bearings is going out.We would have to take everything out the drum and belt and motor to get to the problem. If you take the back panel off and take the lint trap off you can turn the fan and you can hear the loud noise. We tried spraying wd-40 around the fan pin but don't get any on the motor. It will burn it up if you do that. But it didn't work so you will have to take everything out.

How to fix Hotpoint CTD00 Tumble Dryer?


http://www.fixya.com/support/t232066-hotpoint_ctd00_trips_power

The link above should solve your problem. I have the same problem and my parents who bought the same tumble dryer also had the same problem. Its water backing up to the fan then its hitting the heating element which is tripping the electric off.

At the back of the Tumble dryer near the bottom you'll see a panel that has about 8 screws that you can taqke off as well as a small panel that cover the pivet for the drum. If you unscrew this you will see the fan and heating element and no doubt a small puddle of water and damp dust that has clung onto the panel. You should dry this with kitchen roll and clean the old dust off then carefully turn the tumble dryer on (at your own risk lol) or you can take the advice of the person who posted the link above and use a hair dryer. This will stop the element getting wet and tripping off.

Also there is a water reservoir to the right of the panel i mentioned. If you prise the clips open and remove the top section you will see the water in the reservoir. If you look inside it on the bottom left hand side there is a little **** that the water drains in from. If you use something like pipe cleaners or a knife and wiggle it about you may have some fluff or hair trapped there that is making the water back up to the fan and causing the tumble dryer to trip off.

Hopefully this willsolve your problem for the time being but the filter in the bottom of the dryer needs to be cleaned thoroughly every week or so to stop this happening again.

Personally i think this is a major design flaw and the tumble dryer should be recalled but Hotpoints aftercare service is awful to say the least so lesson learnt, don't buy a hotpoint tumble dryer!

Coin in dryer


The coin is probably rattling against the blower fan. First, unplug the dryer or turn off the main breaker. There are live voltages present inside a dryer even with the power shut off. Then, follow these steps: 1. Take out the lint screen. 2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door. There are a couple of screws under the front. The panel should pull straight down then come off. 3. Remove the blower fan housing. There will be 2 to 3 screws holding it in place. NOTE: If you did not take out your lint screen in STEP 1 you will know why I told you to take it out. The blower fan housing won't come off with the lint screen in place. Once you have the panel off you will be able to access the blower fan, and anything else that as gotten trapped inside the housing. This would be a good time to clean as well. Reassembly in the reverse order of what I just explained to you. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
