Honeywell 703 central vacuum seems very hot after
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

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.
