mcdevito75 here, If the fan is not too old I would figure yes, but a replacement motor will cost as a new fan, if not more, then you have to install and the blades are a presss fit to the motor.

ok here is what I found....there should be screws on the outside rim where the two fan grates meet....then dust the innerds with a leaf blower or a rag, then use brake cleaner spray to soften the greasy dirt that formed, and again a rag to wipe away any residue....hope this works, it did for me

I've had an 1887 since the 90s -- great fan. I have to say that FixinFax (Solution 1 above) probably didn't try to take his unit apart. My blade has stopped rotating several times over the years and I always got it going again by myself. I'm no whiz, just your average amateur handyman. In fact I am fixing the motherbleeper right now because in a week where the heat is 100 degrees it chose to slow down and stop.

Eventually it sucks enough dust into the axle housing so you have to take the motor mechanism apart and clean it. It's not terribly complicated, but you have to note how the electrical and mechanical parts go back together before disassembling. It's a little tricky to get all the housing parts to line up level again, you may have to try a couple times till the blade rotates freely. Wipe out all the dust and gunk buildup. Lubricate the axle with oil, or I just spray with WD-40. Then reassemble.

The only thing I have had to replace is the on-off knob, since it's plastic and it split. Just get a universal knob from your local hardware store.

you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

How do clean the lakewood mini tower fan model MTF 15

How do clean the lakewood mini tower fan model MTF 15

Here is what one said:
"To clean it, you will need a small paint brush, screw driver either flat or crossed, then disassemble it. Loosen the screw and just be observant what you put apart. Then clean it. Good"

You may want to take it to a gas station and REALLY clean it out? OR a aerosol canned "AIR DUSTER" will be very useful too!

Earl, take motor along with you, and visit some surplus stores, princess auto, etc.
I have often found parts like that.

hello Lamar baker i think the problem is the AC CAPACITOR is about 2 to 5 micro farad this is usually the problem if your sharp and bossing is clean and have oil...

The problem is you shouldn't have bought it in the first place. Low-end! Look for something with at least a 13 degree blade pitch next time you buy a fan.
