Question about Lakewood R12-DSK Table Fan
I purchased the 12" desk fan and although it is running okay, as in fairly quietly, I see that there is kind of a "wobble" when you look a the running blade from the side. It looks like the blade assembly is "pumping" in and out at a fast and consistent rate. Is this part of the design? Or is this something I will need to fix? I'm not willing to do too much to this fan because it wasn't cheap and I believe that products should work right out of the box. Please advise!!! Thank you! My concern is that running the fan with this kind of "wobble" will damage the motor, if it is in fact not part of its regular function.
The problem you are getting is due to a warped fan blade, assembly of motor, or unbalanced spin radius. Your best bet on this is to seek a replacement from your manufacturer, as this is likely a fault of the assembly process, or even of manufacturing the fan blade set anyway. While the problem is not a major one, and you will be just fine using said fan for some time, it will shorten the life of the motor, which will eventually run dead due to extra stress. To prevent excess wear and tear, run the fan at a slightly lower speed, i.e. on 2, maybe even 1. At higher speeds, the centripetal force will cause the blades to warp further, and pull the motor back and forth, and thus, cause the unit further damage.
