All you have to do get your vacum cleaner or unscrew all screws before opening your fan.

My electric fan WILL oscillate, but the blades do not spin. I've opened it up, cleaned and oiled it and can't see any loose wiring. If the Oscillator works, why won't it spin?

fans that oscillate but don'e spin suggest a separate small motor for that action
the fan not spinning suggest a failed motor
mostly it is not worth repairing fans as the parts are not readily available and the labour and parts will out weigh the cost of a new one
take it to an appliance centre for a correct diagnosis then make a decision.

Seville classic fan was cleaned and now it will not come on.

Dry out!!!!! Why would you get it wet? Anyway, check the reverse switch to make sure it's in the correct position.

Model# 14f0 not working

Check your capacitor to see if it's OK. Hampton Bay is just a low-end store brand made from less expensive parts. Remember you get what you pay for. When buying a fan try to get a fan with at least a 13 degree blade pitch.

Do I clean model FS10-S4R the same as model FZ10-9HB have had this for a long time really needs cleaning bad it is a wonderful fan

compressed air , you might try bringing it to a electric motor repair shop or a auto shop and ask real nice if they would be nice enough to give your fan a shot of air. a weed blower will work also but not even close to the job of compressed air. last resort is to take it apart totaly and use soapy water and a scrub brush. do not get the motor wet ! and oil the bearings on the motor with zoom spout oil #D01.. and you can milk your favorite fan out for many,many years .. this way is like cheating death! ... jay the pool pump motor repair guy in longwood fl

My NuTone Model LS-100SE motor is going bad and I can't find a replacement anywhere, can you help me or at least tell me a good replacement fan that would fit in the same fan foot print?

This is a hassle. I have had to replace several of these and it seems they come up with a new motor/model every few days. Seriously, call them and ask if there is a replacement motor for that unit. There may be. They may also give you a recommended replacement. this is usually a different size by a bit. You just have to trim some of the sheetrock to get it to fit. unless you can only find one that is smaller. I use caulk around the edges to get a good seal and cover up. You can also try cleaning the "fan" part of the unit. this often gets dusty and becomes off balance. A good cleaning and one or two -small- drops of oil may buy you some time.

Have several small DT-70 table fans. Wondering is it possible to take them apart for cleaning? I have NO idea where my manuals are, bought them several years ago. If they cannot come apart for cleaning,...

There are 6 screws, deeply recessed, in the rear of the fan case. (At least that is how they are on mine, phillips or cross head)
Once they are loosened, the front and back will come apart. I Do that annually so it can be thoroughly cleaned..
Otherwise, I use a toothbrush to fit between the slots to get most of the dust, also a paintbursh with stiff bristles for the outside grills.. Similar small brushes should work for loose dust. Also can blow out loose dust with a shop vac with blower capability.

Cleaning a HOneywell 14F0 fan

Norm 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

Cleaning a 14F0 Honeywell Fan

thank you for using fixya. The blade cage has locks and screws that you can remove from the back. once the cage has been removed, you can remove the blade attached to the motor using a vacuum cleaner or you can remove the blades by undoing the screw on the center detaching it from the motor.

Is there any way to take back off to clean???


I had the same problem. I called Honeywell and they told me that it was designed so it could not be removed and I would have to send it in for repairs. When I told them it only needed cleaning, the woman told me they won't do that and I should by a new one. Right. So, I took it to Home Hardware and they were very helpful. Apparently, the screws at the back require a special screwdriver that is not sold to the public. But, they did it for me and replaced them with common screws. Now I can open it and clean to my hearts content.
