Question about Vornado FA1-0007-30 Zippi Desk Fan, Platinum

1 Answer

Fan died after one use

I had the Zippi Deskfan set to II. It was on a few hours and then suddenly stopped. The outlet is working, plugged something else into it and it worked. Tried plugging the Zippi into other working outlets. Nothing. Is there a reset button somewhere? I had just gotten the fan for Xmas, 2006.

Re: Fan died after one use

There is a thermal overload inside the motor that is not resettable - it must be replaced.

Why my Hunter Ceiling Fan does not work?

Its unlikely that the fan is on a separate feed from the breaker box than the rest of the outlets in your room but you never know. It would not hurt to check all of your breakers. If the fan and its light are controlled by the same wall switch then the wall switch may have went bad. Within the fan there are separate wires for the fan and the light so both of them would not go out at the same time. It makes more sense that the problem is at your wall switch.

Fan stops after 2 minutes of running

Hi,If your deskfan has a timer, the problem would be the timer switch that must be replace, because it is the one the supplies power to you fan.if it has no timer, the problem would be the bushing and the lubricant. Open up the fan cage cover and try to move the fan blade, if the fan blade does not move freely that means it has either the bushing needs replacement or oil lubricant is needed in the bushing.Drop some oil in the middle of the shaft of the fan to help it run again.
Did you hear if the fan make some noise when you last use it?
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

Plugged in my fan, but it does not work. Is there a fuse that may have burned out?

First, is there power at the outlet? If so, try another outlet. There's a reason for this, but I'm trying to keep this simple. Now, let's say that the outlet isn't working, then check and see if there's a switch operating this outlet. If so, then turn it on, and you should have the outlet working again, along with the fan. In addition to this, also check your circuit breaker to make sure it hasn't been tripped. Also, it's a stretch - but if there's no power at the outlet, you could have a tripped GFI breaker (normally in your bathroom) that is wired through your rooms for added grounding protection. Okay, you've done all of the above - and still nothing. With the fan unplugged, take apart the fan and see if all the connections are good. If so, your fan motor could be bad. Its at this time if you see if there's a fuse in there. I'm not sure, but you'll see a fuse holder in the housing when you take it apart. But I'm not sure if they have a fuse with this fan. Also, there could be a reset button, but again, with this model, I'm not sure. But being an electrician, I usually find a lot of problems with fans being something other than the fan itself. This is why I check the other factors first. It takes a few minutes, and easy to work with before having to take apart the fan. Good Luck to you, and I hope this helps you. Feel free to contact me again if you have any further questions. Jim

My Lasko Pedestal fan just stopped working completely

Its probably something simple, plug it into another outlet and make sure that outlet work also, if that dont work it will be in the control switch and i doubt the motor is burnt up. You can take srew driver and open up the control cover to see if there a fuse and check the wiring connection from the outlet to the control switch and make sure the fan is unplug before you open up the cover. Jiggle the wire inside the control unit than press and play with the button couple of time and plug it back into the outlet and see that will work. if not than have somone test the the motor with a volt meter making sure the motor still good. I believe it be more likely in the control swith unit. hope that work for ya

Fan not working but lights are working

it is likely that the motor connection is faulty.
it may even be inside the motor windings.
if not in warranty.
Then you can open it and follow the ac to the motor.
Past that and you will have to replace it.
