Fan not spinning
clean your fan motor. remove carefully part by part(your fan motor, the coil and the rod). remove all the dirt. put machine oil at the rod, front and the back part. try to spin it. oil it and spin, do it again and again until the rod spin smoothly. and then put back those part as before you 'open' the fan. but remember, do not do this while your fan plug is still plugged to the power source. or you will be dead instantly. for your safety, you know. so be careful. last step, try it! :) i hope this will help you in fixing the fan.

Accutek stand fan just hums, won't turn
That means the bearings are dry and have locked. Simply open the motor cover by removing the screw and pull the oscillation knob by rocking it side by side gently to have free access to the motor.
MAKE SURE THE FAN IS UNPLUG FIRST. Use cream type grease on both ends of the shaft. After applying the grease rotate the blades until they're freely and you feel the blades have released.
Place the motor cover back and the oscillation knob and plug-in the fan. Leave it on HIGH for 10-minutes or more to make the rotor loose with the grease.

My standing fan is humming and wont spin the way
Sounds like the shaft & bearings are gummed up. Clean them up with Liquid Wrench or WD - 40 (sparingly) spinning the shaft by hand to get it inside the bearings, front & rear. You should feel it loosening up. Then remove as much as you can with a cloth while spinning the shaft. Then relube with 3-in-1 oil. --- Oil alone will not cut thru the gum. Remember WD - 40 and Liquid Wrench are not lubricants!! You must use 3 -in-1oil or the likes.
