Won't turn on

Went on 1 week vac. all three fans were turned off. when I returned, one of the fans won't turn on? I have power........it just won't operate.......tried pulling chain........tried breaker switch........pushed the blades to help start.....but no luck. Does it take oil? Is there a lifetime warranty? Please help......thanx, Barry

    I have three fanimation islander fans which were all turned off while I was away for 1 wk. Upon returning, one of the fans won't turn on.....I have power....I tried the breaker switch......I tried tapping the motor as suggested......no luck! What next?????

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    I bought the house with the fans included.......probably about 8-9yrs old.

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    I take it that the condenser is inside the motor housing.......these fans are not cheap.....would it be worth it to get someone to the house.....it hangs on a 12'post

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    Tried to manually spin with no success

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    Don't want to sound ignorant, but I can see no outboard condenser.....is it inside the switch housing.....again, I can't see anything except the motor housing and the switch housing.....no lights attached

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    unless I have one of the three switch wall plate that has gone bad......there seems to be power.....but, anything is possible, realizing that the one switch could be bad

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    Hello! anybody have another suggestion? thanx, Barry

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    Not the answer I was hoping for.........but it seems to be the most probable......especially since we had dust all over the area......just had new wood floors installed, sanded and finished.........anything else I might not have tried?

  • bholz1 Jan 02, 2009

    the answer to check power at the fan to make sure there is an active feed to the motor makes sense.......if power is there, then the motor is probably worn out......thanx to all, Barry

Hi! You tried pulling the chain but nothing happened. Now check the connections with black,black, and blue make sure the two black wires are firmly together.

Try spinning the fan with a stick and then switch it on and check all the controls.

Does the fan have a light? Does the light work? If both the fan and the light are not working, it is likely a connection issue. Lower the fan canopy and/or housing, and check to see that all the wires are connected firmly.

And, if still doesn't work then there would be a small cylindrical capacitor, check weather it is burnt or is there any kind of oil leaking through it. If so replace it with a similar rating Capacitor.

All you need to do is manually move the wings after switching on the fan use a ruler or a stick to do that.

How long have you been using it though? I believe there's a warranty for your unit

    how have you confirmed there was power to the fan ?



  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith Jan 02, 2009

    i would suggest that the wall switch has indeed gone bad as i can't see any other logical reason for that fan to have failed. if you have a way without getting electrocuted of course to test the voltage at the fan itself that would certainly narrow down the problem.

KDS-R60XBR2 power led blinks 4 times,


There are three fans the one that usually fails is located on top of the optical block and cannot be reached by the owner unless you take the set apart yourself. What is happening is that one of the fans are not spinning fast enough or has stopped altogether. The best solution is to replace all three fans cleaning may not be enough to get a slow fan up to speed, and the tech should blow out the dust in the duct work. This is what the tech coming out will (or should) be doing. Also some fans will have an intermittent startup, and cause this intermittently, so it is a good idea just to replace the fans instead of just cleaning them.
