SOURCE: The power is in but the blade wont move

Your best bet is to UNPLUG the fan, remove the protected cage and the cover that protects the motor and take a can of compressed air and blow out any dust that you happen to see that has built up in the fan. Then look for a bushing that is towards the front of the shaft and the rear of the shaft and place a drop of 3 in 1 oil where the bushings are located. I would place a couple drops on the front and rear shaft, spin the shaft by hand, move it back and forth, then then put it back together again and try it.
This should extend the life of your fan as long as the motor isn't burnt up, and the fan hasn't been left on for a long period of time when the blades where not moving.
Hope this helps.
Keep in mind.. a little maintenance goes a long way.

SOURCE: When I turn my fan on, the motor starts but I must

Lubricate/spin the shaft (by hand) on both ends -- it may be gunked up.

If that doesn't solve the problem, it's the start capacitor inside the motor housing. Probably needs replacing.

More info, let me know.

Battery cables get hot


The cables typically get hot from too much current. If the starter motor is frozen and can not turn you get high current. This could be in the starter, but also if the engine itself is frozen. Push on the cooling fan blades to see if the engine still moves. Remove the starter motor to check it.

Looking for a manual ..i tried www.managemyhome ,,butthey did not have my model #944607042 thanks


How long has it been since the device? Maybe the engine is "frozen". Put it in the highest gear and take the brake off. Then try to move the mower or whatever it is by hand. If you can get the vehicle to move, then try starting it. If that doesn't work, then you need to see if you're getting power from the battery to the starter motor. Check the starter relay if it has one, and check all connections from the battery and to the starter motor to make sure they are tight and clean.

A short circuit in the power wiring would probably cause the fuse or breaker controlling the circuit to open. Make sure the AC outlet you're plugged in to is actually working. If so, there's an open circuit somewhere if no power is reaching the motor.

Have you checked the switch with an ohmmeter to make sure it's really working? Check the wiring from the switch to the motor. You can also make sure the motor windings aren't open with the ohmmeter. The motor may have burned out as they sometimes do.

Check for voltage right at the motor. If this is a brush-type motor, the brushes may be worn out. It may also be that the motor is getting voltage but has a bad starting capacitor. Most commercial equipment uses capacitor-start motors, and the capacitor is usually mounted in a bracket on the motor. You can test the cap with a meter that has capacitor checking; replace the cap if it measures outside of the tolerance marked.

I turn the key and dont do eniting ,after 3-4 times she star


If you mean that you turn the key to start but the starter motor doesn't engage the flywheel until the key is turned to start several times, try this. Look under the front of the car and locate the starter motor, which will be at the front of the oil pan. Tap the end of the starter motor with the handle of a large screwdriver a couple of times. If the starter then engages, the starter motor is bad. What happened to the last 99 Caravan (w/175,000 miles) was that a large amount of oily gunk had made its way into the part of the starter that housed the motor brush ***'y, preventing the motor brushes from moving freely and keeping one or more of them from making contact with the armature. The fix was to spray cleaner into the unit. That freed up the brushes and allowed the starter to work. That was a year ago. If you mean that the motor turns over, but doesn't start until you have tried 3 or for times, then I suspect a fuel problem. I have seen a problem where the fuel drains out of the fuel line when the car is off so that repeatedly turning the key to start runs the fuel pump which must refill the fuel line before it can reach the engine. Check the fuel pump, the fuel pump relay, etc. Or, locate the fuel pump relay, under the hood, on the driver side fender. Carefully remove the relay and remove the black plastic cover by lifting the two tabs. Carefully reinsert the relay, sans cover, and have an assistant turn on the key. If the contact "pulls in" then have your assistant remove the gas cap and listen as you manually close the contact with your finger. ( It's okay, the 12 volts won't shock you!) If they can hear a whirring sound, then the pump is working. Have someone start the car while you keep the relay engaged. Hope this helps. Dano

if its sat for any length of time the lube on the shaft can harden. remove the grill and spin the blade to see if it rotates freely. using care to stay away from the blades set it to the highest setting and give the blades a little assist to see if it will begin to spin, if it does,, use some WD-40 or Trilube on the shaft of the motor front and backside Good Luck Dave. please take a moment to rate my reply (note) larger fans require more juice to get them going,, so yes , if the cap is flawed and not totally burned out,, ( they are called starting capacitors) then they are not supplying enough amps to get the job done,, which in turn would allow the motor to Hum, but repeated trying will burn out the cap

Our duracraft portable fan is humming and not moving? what is the problem and can it be fixed?


Sounds like the armature needs to be cleaned. Dirt can build up on the ends of the motor shaft that operates the fan and where it is held in place, the dirt can actually stop the fan. I would spray both ends of the motor shaft with WD40 and rotate the fan by hand until it is free. This is the cheapest thing to do in order to try and get the fan running again. The problem may be worse than this, but it is a good place to start.

Humidifier fan blades stopped turning


Sounds like the brush is completely gone. You might be able to replace just the brush.


Good luck.
