Question about Dryers
Please help with your suggestion on why my ceiling fan stops running. Is there a bad capacitor or a fuse that I need to replace?
The light kit works OK. The fan is made by Harborbreeze
Several possiblities come to mind.
1) Electric motors attract dust and lint; enough can either cause the motor to overheat or just physically clog. Regular vacuuming helps, but you may have to pull it apart to check (de-energize that wiring circuit first).
2. Look for any loose wire connections. If you have a multi-meter, use it to check for continuity between the various wires.
3. Look at the motor for signs of scorching or other physical damage. If the previous two steps don't fix it, you're likely looking for a new/rebuilt motor.
Fixing #1 or #2 are probably within the capabilities of the average homeowner; if #3 is the problem, you probably aren't going to rewind the motor - - you might want to check back here with an update (and feedback?).
