Question about Honeywell HY-048BP Tower Fan
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.
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.

first you have to remove the two plugs on top behind the buttons remove the two screws next you have to remove the base stand and their is one screw you have to remove then you can remove the front cover and you can get to the motor and fan.

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

I have this fan & have removed those screws. Look directly above the switch on the back of the fan, let your eye travel up to the extreme outside edge. Such as where you'd find 12 o'clock on a timepiece. The screws are very small. About the size of the head of a finishing nail.
Follow the edge around to 2 o'clock, 4 o'clock, and so on. Don't blink.
I used a very small philips head screwdriver, the same size as for doing watch or eyeglass repair. Remember to have a secure place to put the screws, such as a pill bottle, or lid.
And the screws can be difficult to remove, apply a lot of force downward on the screwdriver and turn s-l-o-w-l-y. Don't strip the head of the screw.
Good luck, Liz/Bizzie Lizzie Atlanta
