The motor is temporarily dead. These fans had a thermal fuse that cut off whenever the motor exceeded certain temperature or if the fuse became defective due to it's own quality. The fan can be repair.

It probably is out of warranty. Most warranties last no longer than 1 year. The switch needs replaced. But it would be cheaper to buy another brand of fan than to pay someone to repair the one that you now own, unless you do the repair yourself.
compressed air , you might try bringing it to a electric motor repair shop or a auto shop and ask real nice if they would be nice enough to give your fan a shot of air. a weed blower will work also but not even close to the job of compressed air. last resort is to take it apart totaly and use soapy water and a scrub brush. do not get the motor wet ! and oil the bearings on the motor with zoom spout oil #D01.. and you can milk your favorite fan out for many,many years .. this way is like cheating death! ... jay the pool pump motor repair guy in longwood fl
If the an runs slowly and hesitates that means it needs some lubrication, drop a few oil in the mid part where the fan blade is located, manually rotate the fan until it loosen up.
Another cause might be the timer that is already broken and needs to be replace.
You will have to turn off the power to the box where the fan in mounted, remove the fan, remove and replace the switch. Replacement switch can be purchased at your hardware or electric supply store or sometimes, where fans are sold.
This is no big shakes to repair ... take pictures with your cell phone if you are not sure what wire goes where.
Thanks for allowing me to assist you this morning.
Had the same problem with model 2551 - Lasko customer service said it was a failure of the electric motor that operates the blade unit. They do not sell replacement parts for their products, and if the unit is out of warranty (1 yr), your only resolution is to purchase another fan.
I disassembled my fan and discovered that the Decomin electric motor (#2033014) can be fairly easily replaced with a screwdriver and pair of pliers, but these motors are not for sale separately, even though they are still manufactured in China for Lasko and other product companies - they have their own website, but only sell fans, not parts.
Hampton bay is owned by home depot and to the best of my knowledge there are no repair centers for hampton bay fans. That bracket can be purchased (or ordered) from home depot. You could try searching "king of fans" online, they manufacture hampton bay fans for home depot.
