The magnet is the part that moves back and forth with the diaphragm. It holds the diaphragm secure and vice a versa. Typically the magnet is very long lasting. However if you run the air pump with bad diaphragms for extended periods you could wear down the magnet. If you open the motor for repair and you find dust or small metal particles you may need to replace the magnet. Always inspect the magnet for wear and tear when you replace your diaphragms. They are very easy to replace. Call us if you need help. firstname.lastname@example.org
Notice of product change!
Affects magnets in Hakko 80L/80Lh and Hakko 120L/120LH.
In order to improve the lifetime of rubber diaphragms, Matala has designed a new magnet that will reduce the amount of heat in the air pump.
The new magnet will only affect newer model air pumps HK80LH and HK120LH starting from January 2015. Air pumps older than 2015 will continue using the original magnet.
The color of the knob on top of the unit will differentiate between the two styles. Hakko air pumps with a black knob will use the original style magnet HK-M60/80 or HK-M120. Hakko air pumps with a gray knob will use the new magnet HK-M80H or HK-M120H.
When ordering a magnet for these two models please also note:
HK-80L with serial numbers up to 811155 will use the magnet HK-M60/80.
HK-80LH with serial numbers starting 811156 forward will use the magnet HK-M80H.
HK-120L with serial numbers up to M121572 will use the magnet HK-M120.
HK-120LH with serial numbers starting M121573 will use the magnet HK-M120H.
