Question about Lakewood 200I Floor / Box Fan

3 Answers

My Lakewood box fan fell over and stopped working

Is there a way to reset the electronics/motor or is there a switch or something that I can flip to get the fans to work again? There is absolutely nothing else wrong with the fans (there are two) - one is thinner and all off white, the other is thicker and has a sort of khaki tinge to the metal and off white guard grills and blades. Each of them has 5 plastic blades. I am sick and tired of buying new fans when one falls or is pushed from the windowsill by one of my cats! Is there a manual or some tip someone can give me? Do you know of a website where I can get this information?? Thank you for your help!

Not worth fixing dude. you're better off buying a new motor

as for me, i'm better off with a vintage lakewood box fan. i recommend a 3rd gen Lakewood box fan. you can find a good box fan here @
www.dtvintagefans.com

the motors on the newer lakewoods  have a chip so when it blows, it's unrepairable, so a new motor is recommended

Ok, it looks like this post has been here a while, but what the heck. I had the same thing happen now, twice. I recently tore one of them apart to see what was going on inside. and yes, a box fan is a simple piece of electronics. but as with every other piece of electronics out there, there is a fuse inside. A little difficult to find, because you have to take and remove the motor, and remove a piece of heat shrink to get to it. not something the normal consumer will try to get to. but i can not tell you if it is a slow blow fuse, or standard. I can tell you that mine is a 2A fuse.

As the box fan is a simple electronic, I would take the fan apart and check the solder points. If one has broken loose or is cracked, simply re-solder the point. Test it and try again. Another suggestion would be to go to your local hardware store and find some appropriate L-brackets to secure the fan to the sill while still maintaining the ability to remove it and close the window. A little human ingenuity can probably outsmart a cat. ;)

My ceiling fan and light does not respond to remote control any more. How do I get them to reconnect again?


Try removing power at the source, waiting a few minutes, and restoring power. Power outages cause the receiver to develop amnesia. In addition, if you try to restore correct operation by pulling chains or flipping wall switches, the receiver loses its tiny electronic mind. You may even find that the problem corrects itself at random over time.

follow this steps with VOM and fix it. God bless you
1. No power to the range hood
Make sure there's power getting to the range hood. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket (unless the hood is hard wired) for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Fan switch
If your range hood only has a fan and no light or any other features, it won't start with a broken fan switch. Replace the switch if found defective.

3. Fan motor
If your range hood only has a fan and no light or any other features, it won't start with a broken fan motor. Replace the motor if found defective.

KWCU405SSS fan motor high speed only


Agreed! It totally works. Our fan and lights were stuck on high. Flipped the hood circuit breaker off for 30 seconds then back on again and all controls are working normally again. Thanks!

I have a Intertherm heating and air conditioner it is a Manufactured Home. The furnace model number is E2EB-017HA. When you flip the switch to heat and move the control arm up nothing happens. You can go...


When you turn the on/off switch to on you are turning on the "fan switch" and the blower motor is only coming on. When you turn the switch to cool and move the tempature control lever down you are turning on the air conditioner...So it sounds like your heater is not working. Is the heater electronic ignition or does it have a pilot? If it has a pilot the heater may not be working because the pilot is out and will need to be lit. If it is electronic ignition you will need to inspect the unit to determine what component is faulty. Could be the igniter,gas control valve,ect. Verify that gas is not shut off to unit at line valve and gas control valve on unit.

Fan won't reverse to counter clockwise


I had a hampton bay fan that absolutely did not have a revers switch on the fan anywhere! MOST fans bought today will reverse. I was not about to give up. I scoured the net for an answer and could not find anything to help. I did however find a comment somewhere that said it could be done internally. After about six months I decided to search again (now). Nothing... so I started playing with the remote and the wall switch and Shazaam! I figured it out on my hampton bay fan. Turn the fan on high... Turn the wall switch off.... wait until the fan is pretty slow in rotation... hold the HI button on the remote.... Turn the switch back on. IT Worked for me! Hope this helps someone. SparqMark

Evap Cooler motor not cutting in


Look for a reset switch on the unit, press it and try again.

If there is no reset switch, unplug the unit entirely if possible, wait a minute and plug it back in.

Sometimes electronics get confused and need to start over. Let us know if that works.

Aircon makes a noise


might be coming from the following....
1) fan motor- bearings or bushings need replacement
2) fan shroud has deformed due to age and is obstructing the fan rotation
3) motor control circuit contacts are dirty or defective hence have less voltage running thru thus an underpowered system

My gas forced air furnace is shutting itself off after 2-3 cycles


there is a thermo-sensor switch next to the circuit board that tells the fan switch to turn on when the plenum is hot enough. this needs to be replaced.

Fan not working


some fan motors have a start capasitor, some have a run capasitor and some have both. if you take out the capasitors (normally in the junction box) take note of which wires go where and head to a refrigeration spare parts wholesalers they should be able to give you the right ones then replace them. this shouldnt cost any more than $20 if that doesnt work you will need to replace the motor.
