Motor leaks oil after 1-2 years and gives you headaches This is my second Hunter QuietFlo 30401 that the motor leaked and polluted the air after over 1-2 years of use. I purchased the first one brand-new. I replaced the pre-filter on a regular basis as needed before the timer recommended it, and I changed the filter when told to do so by the digital filter life monitor. This was used in a large climate-controlled bedroom. The unit is only used during sleeping or when the room was aired out or cleaned.
The unit works great, but the motor hasn't lasted. I started getting headaches while sleeping and eventually I noticed an electrical burning smell. I traced it back to the air cleaner. I called Hunter and they had me cut the power cord and return the cord when they send me a new unit (they asked me to dispose of the defective unit). They replaced the entire unit with a brand new 30401! Great customer service, it was all paid for and I was good to go. Before disposing of the old unit, I opened it up to take a look and oil was leaking out from the motor and it smelled like "electrical burn" smell.
1.5 years later, the replacement unit did the same thing. I hadn't been sleeping well lately, and last night I had a headache, so I smelled the air coming from the unit and it smelled like something burning. I turned it off and waited the next day to take a look at it. The same thing: The oil from the motor is leaking and it smells like it's burning.
So if you are getting headaches - try sleeping with the air cleaner OFF and air out the room! This could be the culprit. The smell isn't noticeable at first but it does effect the air you breath. I also noticed the Hunter label that says "MADE IN TAIWAN". I don't know if this also applies to the motor, but it's too risky to have this replaced and have this happen again. I am stuck with some extra filters but I would rather buy a completely different brand and unit then to risk my health again running this unit while I am sleeping....more info
Worth every penny! This HEPA filter is great. It's super quiet, and the built-in timer is a great way to save power. We also have a previous model which has been going strong for over 6 years, so I expect this will last just as long....more info
