Re: dials are on zeros
like the furnace is trying to run, but is getting cut out on some
safety device. Depending on the furnace there are many different
proving devices that could be cleaned and/checked. one thing you can do
is take the cover off the thermostat and take an alligator clip and jump
from red to white this should bypass the thermostat. if you still have no
heat then it's probably not the thermostat.

The start capacitor is defective. The capacitor makes the current lead the voltage by 90 degrees when the part is good. Thus at zero seconds maximum current exists with zero voltage. The current and voltage are out of phase with each other. This jump starts the motor to start it turning much faster. It now just has a magnetic field that holds it in one place so that it fights turning even if you try to spin the fan blade, due to the current and voltage now being in phase with each other. It no longer gets the jump start that it needs at start up.
Yes, they can. Another possibility, however, is the jumper settings could have been accidently changed when the battery was changed. Inside the remote is usally four little switches in a row, each can be on or off (zero or one). These need to be set to the same values as the receivers in the fans.
First think I think when I hear of a burning smell is have you cleaned out the motor housing real well lately. Lots of fuzz, dust, etc can build up in there and make that motor really work hard and start to make it want to overheat or over heat. Unplug the fan and take a tooth pic and get in the motor assembly and pull the lint etc out of there with it. Some canned air may help a bit to once things are loosened up.
As for lubricating the fan you won't oil it. The motor spins the fan so there is nothing to lubricate. When the motor goes the the fan stops so the best thing you can do is strip that fan the best you can and wash and dry the parts real good and clean the motor housing out real well to let that motor breath as much as possible.
When a fan motor gets old and is worked real hard it can get hot by default and things will smell hot. If the fan has already been cleaned real well the best thing you can do is give it a break more frequently or look into a replacement motor.
I purchased a 'Turn of the Century-Apollo' model 355-6786 cieling fan. The only problem is no fan blade mounting bolts and nuts, instead I have 2 packs of mounting screws. I've dialed the Customer Service Department to no avail. Is there an unpublished WEB site?
