I have a Lasko HVB, but this might apply to your fan:
Without taking the thing totally apart, here's an idea you can try: The power cord on some models (like mine) has a "warning" tag. I had the damn thing all apart when I noticed this. (Well, who reads 'em??) Seems like there's a mini-fuse in the PLUG itself that, when it blows, there's nothing you can do about it except send it for repair to a factory authorized yadda yadda yadda. Who's going to do that??
If you plug in and NOTHING HAPPENS, here's what might turn out to be an cheap and easy fix: cut off a few inches of the plug end of the cord and go buy another plug at Ace. Heavy duty might be appropriate: don't think I'd want a lamp plug on this baby. Get one that's easy to install. Bring the cut off piece and they'll help you find exactly what you want.
If you want to open it up, there's a screw behind the Lasko medallion, remove that and you can snap out the grille. You can see where the cord comes in from the back of the blower housing. Test the line voltage. If you're not getting about 120VAC, it's the plug.
If that's not it, IMHO, without some knowledge or a schematic, you're screwed. That'd be me. It wasn't the plug.

I had a similar fan which
quit. I could sometimes get it to start
spinning by banging on it. Finally took
it apart. Lots of small screws, all
small phillips. As I suspected, the
"thrust bearing," which supports the rotating components, had become
"stiff." I thought that it would be a non-friction (ball bearing),
but it is only a bushing, with washers supporting the shaft. With the motor opened up, I greased the
bearing with petroleum jelly, and reassembled everything. It is spinning very quietly now. Final comment - this is probably more work
than the average fix-it person would want to take on, but it is doable. It took about two hours, start to finish. I could do it in less than one hour now that
I know how to do it.
