Looks good by Richard Fritz (Longmont CO US)

Replacement motor seems to work fine and installation had no complications. Actually I only needed the plastic drum drive coupling, but it was not replaceable without the new electric motor. So we're back in business just waiting for the cold weather season.

Skuttle Motor Replacement by Laurence J. Rusiecki (Egg Harbor Twp NJ US)

I made sure that I had the correct model number of my humidifier when I ordered the motor. Delivery was prompt. I was able to install the new motor in about a half-hour. It now works fine! Advice to installers: make sure that the correct wires (2) are connected to the proper wires back to the unit by doing them one at a time!

Well as we know the motor at 1 RPM works fine ,Its main design flaw is the plastic coupler,,that over time an exposed tempture gets brittle. and fails. . If mfg made just that plastic coupler ,with an easy fitment to the motor shaft ( PROBLEM SOLVED)

Skuttle A05-1721-042 Drum Motor by Mark Zampino (Cromwell CT )

My only complaint is that the motor has two wires coming out of it and both are black ! I'm no electrician, so I had to use my own various colors of electrical tape to keep things straight, lol. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars.

Replacement Drum Motor by Jack Getkin (Pittsburgh PA US)

The replacement motor was an identical replacement for the OEM drum motor provided with my Honeywell central humidifier. Installation was quick, simple, and easy. The humidifier continues to work perfectly.

Prompt delivery and very easy to install, it did not work in the beginning, but when I switched wires it did. Little instruction paper upon installation would help others. :)

Skuttle A05-1721-042 Drum Motor by Elizabeth Kocsis (Bristol WV US)

The Skuttle parts website made it very easy to troubleshoot the problem with our humidifier and find the right parts to fix it. It took about a week, I think, for the parts to arrive since we're all the way across the country from the parts store, but the new motor was easy to install and is working perfectly. I'm so glad to have a working humidifier again.

New humidifier motor by Chris R (Plainfield IL US)

The new motor spec'd out properly and was easy to install. As for working-life we have to wait and see. Hopefully, it will last longer than the OEM motor which broke after just 14 months.

motor by John Bennett (Princeton Ma US)

Works great. I was worried I could not find this replacement part and your availability of parts made this an easy project. Also I wanted to get the house humidified due to a bad cold and flu season and now we are up and running. I actually installed this system while sick with walking pneumonia so thank you for making it easy.

It was what it was sussposed to be. No problems with the installation.

Dale by Dale Jessen (Charlottesville Va US)

It's working fine, however an uninformed home owner can easily break the motor by inadvertently turning the drum by hand. This will break the delicate plastic gear. Dale

Skuttle A05-1721-042 Drum Motor by K Lombardi ( Ne US)

Ordering was a breeze. Delivery took just a little longer than expected, but the part arrived well-packaged and in good condition. The motor was a cinch to install, since it was OEM. Very pleased with the transaction and would definitely use this website/vendor again.

What is this? by Ken Hori (Framingham Ma US)

This purchase was my second time from your company. The first one was about a year + ago. The both deliveries were excellent and timely. Now my central humifiers are going strong. The stepper motor seems to have life span of 10 years, can't you make it much more reliable? I believe its plastic coupling is wearing off on my both cases. All the best, Ken

Order came as expected on last day promised. Motor installed correctly and easily. Would perfer stranded wire for the leads to wire-nut to the humidistat.

Nice Unit by Todd Schlatter (Trumbull CT US)

The item arrived at after a reasonable time. Was well packaged, and was a very easy install. As I just put it in, I can't speak to the durability, but it kicked right in and moved the humidifier media with no difficulty. The old motor was still working, but the plastic fitting for the media rod cracked after 12 years. If this lasts the same amount of time I'll be happy.

One of the mounting nuts was missing when I opened the package. But, I had one that worked.
