Question about Hunter 33201 Humidifier

Open Question

I am taking my humidifier (hunter 33210) apart for the year end cleaning before putting it into storage. I am trying to dismantle the pump/motor/fan assembly to clean around those parts. I am not sure what I need to remove where to get all this to come apart. I've been unable to locate a service manual for the unit. So the question is where's the joint?

If you know how to remove them, you clean them with a water vinegar solution

From The Hunter Manual
1. Turn the humidifier ‘OFF’ and unplug the unit.
2. Lift the main housing and remove the water dispersion tray and the PermaWick™ Filters. The motor is attached to the main housing. Do not place the motor near water. Do not use a wet towel on the motor or motor housing as electrical shock may occur.
3. The PermaWick™ Filter should be cleaned in a vinegar and water solution to remove any mineral buildup. Place in a solution of one (1) gallon of water and eight (8) ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Allow the filter to soak for 20 minutes.
4. After soaking, rinse it several times with clean water. Place the PermaWick™ Filter in a location where it can drip dry while you clean the other parts of your humidifier.
5. Remove the water tank from the base and empty any water that is left in the tank. Soak the base in a mixture of one (1) gallon of water and eight (8) ounces of vinegar for 20 minutes.
6. After soaking, wipe the base with a soft cloth or sponge to remove any mineral build up. Rinse with clean water several times. If you are planning on storing the humidifier, be sure the base is completely dry.
7. Fill the water tank with one (1) gallon of water and eight ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Replace the tank cap and shake the tank vigorously until all interior surfaces of the tank have been exposed to the water/vinegar mixture.
8. Empty the tank of the water/vinegar mixture. Rinse it several times with clean water and then replace the tank cap. If you are planning on storing the humidifier, dry it inside and out, leaving the cap off to allow the tank to completely dry. Continue to clean the other parts of your humidifier.
9. Remove the water diffuser cap by squeezing the two tabs as shown in Figure 3. Rinse the cap in clean water to remove any debris. If the cap contains hard water residue, soak it in a mixture of one (1) quart of water and two (2) ounces of vinegar for 20 minutes.
Rinse well and reinstall the water diffuser cap. Do not expose motor or other electrical components to water.
10. Wipe the surfaces of the main housing with a soft cloth.
11. Once all the parts are clean, reassemble the humidifier, and follow the USING YOUR HUMIDIFIER to continue use. If you are storing the humidifier, make sure the parts are completely dry, reassemble, and store in a dry location

Soak what you can in white vinegar. For the rest put some of the vinegar in a spray bottle and carefuly spray and use an old toothbrush.

What might be wrong, and is it worth repairing?


I think it is a fairly simple bit of equipment which probably uses a synchronous motor which rarely cause problems, though they sometimes seize and need freeing. Sometimes something might get caught in the fan and stop it.
Whatever is wrong it is clear you can't go any further without taking it apart and maybe checking a few things with a multimeter so if you aren't able to do that it means asking someone else to take a look for you and that someone will want paying even if it becomes an uneconomic repair.
Repair shops want paying these days even for giving an estimate.

My best advice is if you can't do these jobs yourself to start building the sort of circle of friends who are more hands on, who know stuff you don't. Most tradespeople are intelligent, humorous and fun and it is great having them on your side.

My advice doesn't help you now but in the long run it could save you a parcel of money and reduce the amount of planet-destroying stuff you need to throw away.

Fan makes noise


Not sure how long you have had this humidifier. If the motor is getting louder it probably needs a new motor. It is possible if it is making a fan blade noise that something is hitting the fan blade. If that is happening try to open enough to see if the fan blade (impeller) is being impeded.

Have two Hunter humidifiers - model 34357-about 5 years old #1, fan just quit running. All else seems normal. #2, Unit starts running and then stops with the humidity reading at max. Since the...


This is the manual for your de-humidifier. It lists the part number for the power and fan control switch and it states they have a 5 year warranty.
http://www.hunter-humidifiers.com/manuals/34357.pdf
This is their link for support:
http://www.hunterair.com/suppo.95rt
They have a msrp on the unit at 84.95. What I wuld do is definately check into the warranty ting with them and I'm sure you could probably salvage one ot of the two units. Replacement parts may not be cost effective. You can test the motor from #1 in #2 and, if it runs, you know it has to be a switch or a start capacitor, etc. I guess it all depends on how much tinkering you want to do. I would think there is a good chance there is a wiring diagram for the motor somewhere inside the case or on the motor. Good luck.

Hunter humidifier 33251 - is there any way grill on the top covering the fan can be removed in order to clean fan blades?


According to the Owners Manual, there's no way remove the top covering the fan. Just clean with a damp cloth and then wipe it draw. However, before wiping it with a damp cloth, you may want to try blowing out the sections of the grill with some canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with). Or use a vacuum cleaner with a hose and brush attachment. After doing that, wipe with a damp cloth and then a dry cloth.

If you need a copy of your Owners Manual, you can download and print it from the following website:

Power light is on, water is up to fill line, dials are set to max humidity and fan speed, but fans do not spin. Tried to spin fans manually but they will not spin on their own. Left fan stopped spinning...


Do the motors feel warm-- maybe even HOT?-- Like they have electric current, but the bearings might be seizing up?
You mentioned one stopped spinning awhile ago--- and the other one was OK-

It sounds like the bearings are dry and worn on the fans-- (How old is the humidifier?)

The bearings CAN be cleaned up and lubricated, if you are into tearing a motor apart, and servicing the bearings-- Are you ready for that? You will have to remove the motors from their mounting, remove the fans, split the end bells, and clean and lubricate the bearings deep inside.

Let us know how much further you want to go-

I took the main white part off and laid it side ways on a table looking inside there is a tube that goes from the top towards the main fan then connects to a plastic part that is shaped like a "p" In the middle part of the "p" you an see I tiny little gear. I manually turned the gear with a paper clip a few times and it worked. I had no idea what I was doing but I was determined!!!

The humidifier is only a month old, but it is making a loud rattling noise


take the tank off and the fan unit housing. inside you'll see a circular filter that goes into the water sump. make sure it isn't falling apart and hitting the fan blades.
