Question about Honeywell HY-048BP Tower Fan

Open Question

Pressed power button and fan would not turn on.

Yes, we did check the electrical outlet. Could it be that the motor burned out? Fan is a honeywell oscilating tower fan with remote, about 2 years old.

SOURCE: I am trying to fix an Oscillating Tower Fan.

Most fan motors for fan over running have an internal overload. once it trips, it will not reset. it is a solid state device. it looks like a flat device or a small bullet device. if you've figured out how to take the fan apart, you could just remove the device and connect the two wires together and the fan will run. you won't have any protection on the motor however. the windings run warm, but if the bearings run dry the motor will slow down and the windings will get hot. this is the reason for the overlaod device - protection. its your call what you want to have.

SOURCE: Fan stopped working

It's possibly a lubrication problem. I can't seem to keep mine lubricated, so good luck with yours.

SOURCE: hello,help please

My fan is doing teh same thing. I have been taking the cover off and spinning the fan blade manually. It takes about 1 minute of constant manual vigorus spinning but as soon as its warmed up the fan blade spins easy and just takes off and starts working. Im sure its not the safest thing to do but it does get the fan running for the rest of the night. Once the fan has been turned off for a while the blade is hard to spin again and I have to start over with teh manual process. I am thinking its the motor being I can manually get it started by spinning the fan blade and think I will check on the cost for a new motor

Check yor wiring, make sure you have sail or pressure switch wired in series with humidistat to humidifiers 24V power. Pressure or sail switch will disconnect humidifier when furnace fan is off. Humidifier (110V) could be connected to any closest electrical outlet.

Hi,I have a travel trailer 37ft. Problem with my ac, the fan starts good but my compressor does not kick on. My next door neighbour says it's the compressor that is done. Could you help me?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Trouble Cause Diagnostic Procedure Repair Procedure Electrical Power is Off Check that all service switches for the equipment are in the "on" position.
Check for voltage at the pump motor or pump controls. If no voltage is found, check for voltage at the electric panel.
If power is on to the building, check fuse or circuit breaker serving the electric motor that won't run.
Check for local reset button on the motor (popped out = off )
Check for other power reset or power off buttons such as an access door compartment safety switch that turns off power to the equipment (found on A/C blower compartment doors)
Turn on "off" switches.
Replace bad fuse. Reset circuit breaker; if necessary replace bad circuit breaker.
Let hot electric motor cool down, then push in its reset button.
Be sure all safety interlock switches such as on compartment doors are depressed and that the doors are securely shut. Replace a bad safety switch.

If the motor has burned out in either of these ways it needs to be replaced.

  1. Check your computer is getting power, (reconnect power from outlet)
  2. if power is ok, then open your computer cabinet, disconnect motherboard power (24 pin), then make short Green and Black wires and check power supply fan is working or not, (Switch off computer when disconnecting)
  3. if fan is not working replace power supply (SMPS) and check (working fan means SMPS is ok, but in some occasions Fan may work in defective SMPS )
  4. if the power section is ok you need check you mother board

Plug the new fan motor, nothing


Sounds as if the Fan Switch may also be faulty. Or the new fan motor is defective. Is the flame function on the electric fireplace working? If the flame function is working, than obviously the fault is either in the fan switch or the new fan motor.

If the motor has a regular receptacle type plug on the end of the cord, try plugging it directly to a wall outlet and see if it works. If you're able to do that, then the problem is in the fireplace's fan switch or in the wiring circuitry going to the fan motor. Perhaps, this is what was wrong all along and not the fan motor, itself.

If nothing is working, check the wall receptacle that the fireplace is plugged into, by plugging in an electric lamp. If the lamp won't turn on, then there's a circuit breaker tripped in your homes circuit breaker panel. Check the circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker and with nothing plugged into the offending receptacle, reset the breaker. Plug the fireplace back into the receptacle, turn it on and see if it trips the circuit breaker. If it does, there's an electrical short some where in the fireplace. Look for burned or frayed wiring, as well as bad connections.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

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
