I have seen a number of oscillating fans where the push-pull knob just pulls off. It will require a serious pulling effort - straight up. Do Not use any tools. You may have to have a helper hold the fan while you pull the knob.

After the knob comes off, push the shaft back down with your finger to allow it to clear the housing.

The speed control switch which is what the cord is attached to has gone bad. You can get these from grainger.com for the dayton line of fans.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Aloha Breeze Tower Fan Will Not Oscillate

hi,

yes this is the oscillation motor, and they generally arent servicable, and need to be replaced, you can try and oil it, sometimes they have small air vents, and you can do a voltage test with a voltmeter but I believe the motor has failed or is gummed up, you can try and take it apart, they are held together with bent metal compression areas along the circumfrence of the motor, try sewing machine oil, you might have to do some research to find a replacement motor, maybe take it to a local clock shop, those motors are very close to what they used to put in old wall clocks.

good luck

SOURCE: oscillating table fan makes banging noise when rotating

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like that oscillating swtich is either a little loose or could use a drop or 2 of 3 in 1 oil. Try to twist offf the oscillating swatch button and see if you can tighten it or put a drop of oil on it.

Unable to assemble AM07 fan unit to base. Fan works on cool but will not oscillate. I got base connected with no problem.


Oscillating fans usually have a drive pin that needs to be pushed in or pulled out to get them to oscillate. Have a look for one of these. They normally look like a knob or button sticking out?

I have a Holmes HAS1650 stand up fan and I need to know how to get it to quit rotating.


Not sure what you mean by "stop rotating"

I assume you mean to stop oscillating. There should be a knob on top of the motor housing that you push down to oscillate and pull up to stop oscillating.

If you mean to stop the blades from spinning there should be a fan speed control knob on the top of the motor housing that you turn to "O" to stop the fan.

Here is an instruction manual for a similar fan...

Where to lubricate fan


What type of fan do you have? If it is a desk or stand fan, you need to add oil to the front bushing/armature (accessible by taking off the fan blade) and to the rear bushing. To reach the rear bushing, you need to take the motor cover off - pull the oscillator push-pull lever up until it disengages, then using a phillips screw driver, unscrew the retaining screw of the motor cover. When the cover is out, you need to unscrew 3 retaining screws on the oscillator assembly at the back of the motor. When the oscillator mechanism is out, you will see the motor armature at the back of the motor (has a threaded end). Add a little oil to the bushing of the armature. Then reassemble (reverse order - secure the oscillator assembly with 3 screws, install the motor cover and screw the back, insert the push-pull lever and you're done). Hope this may help.

How do I fix my fan so it has fan movement when I turn it on, any speed?


Fan oscillations are typically started or stopped by a knob at the top of the motor housing. Sometimes the knob has to be pulled to engage the mechanism, sometimes pushed in and sometimes it has to be twisted several turns to the left or right, usually it is several turns anticlockwise.

Just trying to take the plastic covering off of the motor without breaking the plastic controls off


The speed control knob will pry off with a thin screwdriver. Once you have removed it, you will see that the knob for the oscillating feature is split where it slides over its shaft. I took a jeweler's screwdriver and separated the halves slightly and the knob pulled free. It's made that way so it doesn't pull off when you go to turn on/off the oscillation. If you're going to oil the rear of the motor, be really careful when you remove the rear housing and separate the motor sections. The winding wires are tiny andfragile. Only take it apart as far as necessary and be careful reassembling the unit. Hope this helps...!

Accutek stand fan just hums, won't turn


That means the bearings are dry and have locked. Simply open the motor cover by removing the screw and pull the oscillation knob by rocking it side by side gently to have free access to the motor.

MAKE SURE THE FAN IS UNPLUG FIRST. Use cream type grease on both ends of the shaft. After applying the grease rotate the blades until they're freely and you feel the blades have released.

Place the motor cover back and the oscillation knob and plug-in the fan. Leave it on HIGH for 10-minutes or more to make the rotor loose with the grease.
