Open Question

Removing Fan I am replacing the hood on my Flymo XL550. First I need to remove the blade and fan to get at the screws holding the motor onto the hood. The blade is off no problem but I can't get the fan off the shaft. The shaft is steel, the spacer alloy and the fan plastic.

    I've solved it, having removed the centre bolt and blade the fan withdraws from the shaft but of course years of corrosion have taken their toll. The fan cannot be rotated on the shaft as there is a woodruff key providing the drive. All you can do is get one person to hold the hood/motor while you pull the fan straight off, rocking the fan side to side and up and down helps a lot, it will come off.

SOURCE: Removing the plastic top service plate

if the motor is running and the blade is not turning here is a rubber coupling that has probably broken.the blender will need to be pulled apart and that part will need to be replaced . it is designed to absorb sudden shocks if something hard is hit and has broken rather than burning out the motor. there are two other torx screws holding the rest of the plastic parts after the switch assy is removed by uncliping it .

SOURCE: Changing Smeg SA280X/1 fan motor, shaft nut stuck?

Most fan blades are held on by a single nut, which is usualy a left hand thread, so to unscrew it you turn it clockwise as though you are tightening it up.and to tighten it,anticlockwise..
If the spindle turns, then you will have to hold it with a pair of grips or similar.
Plz rate my solution.
Thabks.

The FR Series fans from Fantech are glued closed to prevent air leakage. Its better to replace the fan than to try and fix it. The cheapest place to buy a Fantech fan is at http:///www.hvacquick.com as they buy direct from Fantech.
Alos the FR Series fan comes with a 5 Year Manufactures warranty.

How to disassemble lasko hassock floor fan


I'm assuming you want to open the fan up to give it a thorough cleaning. This is how I got one open. First things first, make sure it's unplugged. No need to risk zapping yourself of accidentally turning it on when your fingers are in range of the fan blade...

Turn the fan upside down. There are four very long Phillips screws concealed by long plastic sleeves that cover the shafts of the screws, with the ***** heads covered by the rubber feet at the bottom of the unit. Pop out the rubber feet, then loosen the screws (there will likely be an alarming snap when they break loose). The two-piece top of the unit will come loose. You can then remove the screws and the plastic sleeves that hide the screws.

Turn the unit right side up and remove the fan blade. The nut holding the blade on is reverse thread, so "lefty loosy, righty tighty" will not apply--turn the nut clockwise to loosen. Remove the nut and lock washer, then pull the blade from underneath the hub (it'll take a bit of force to pop it off.

The wire from the motor to the speed control switch connects the base to the cylindrical center portion of the unit. To separate the center portion from the base, pull the knob off of the shaft of the switch and remove the ***** holding it in place. The switch can then be disconnected from the center piece. I'd put the ***** back into the switch to keep it from disappearing.

The motor can be removed from the base by removing the three screws holding it to the base from underneath, but unless you're looking to replace the motor, you shouldn't need to do this.

Put it back together by reversing the disassembly process.

Fan does not come on


This will take some work, and some elbow grease, but what happened is the motor bushings most likely seized. Try turning the blades with your hand. If they are stiff, the bushings are seized. What you will have to do is take the fan apart. First by removing the blades, then by taking the motor off of the frame. Then depending on the type of bolts/ screws that hold the motor together, remove them. Then split the motor apart by taking a flat blade screwdriver and sliping it between the two pieces of the motor and turning it so they slip apart. then once the motor is apart, shine up and clean the motor's shaft so it is clcan and shiny. then do the same for the bushing/ beringholes in the motor's casing. then drip some oil in the berings, and on the motor shaft, and put the motor back together. then put it back on the frame, and plug the fan in. turn it on. the shaft should just spin without any help. if this does spin, put the blades back on, and put the guard back on. Then you sucessfully rebuilt the motor and the fan!

Replace oven fan motor


Take out the shelves and side hangers. SWITCH OFF.
There is usually a panel at the back of the oven cavity, undo the screws around it to access the fan blade. At this point you should be able to determine if there is another panel that the fan mounts onto that comes out through the front. (unlikely). Undo the centre nut on the fan blade which is usually a left hand thread - turn clockwise to undo. Take off the fan blade.
Next you gotta get to the rear of the oven and remove the back panel to access the fan motor. Once inside note down where the wires go. Remove wires from motor.
Back inside the oven cavity you will find screws that hold the motor in place (often three). Have someone hold the motor while you undo them. The motor should now be withdrawn from the rear.
Replace motor in reverse order.

I have a noisy cooling fan. I have cleaned and removed all the dust from the vents in the compressor compartment, but the fan still make a squeeking sound. Can the fan be oiled or greased or should it...


Is the area between your fridge and freezer smoking hot? Can you smell the rubber seals melting? Does your fridge squeak like crazy? You have an issue with your condenser fan. You can save about $50 by fixing the fan motor yourself. I'm no engineer but this was an easy fix. 1) Unplug the fridge. 2) Take off the lower back panel covering the condenser and fan. 3) Unplug the fan (on the top left from the fan. 4) Slide the fan out of the bracket 5) Take the fan blade off. (This will take the most time and TLC, it is glued on) 6) Take the two screws out of the back of the housing. **The fan motor should be free of the housing and blade** 7) Remove the two screws from the fan motor housing. 8) Pull the shaft out of the motor and clean all parts with some oil and a rag. 9) Make sure all moving parts are well oiled then put the shaft back in the motor housing. 10) Replace the motor housing screws 11) Replace the motor into the fan housing and replace the screws. 12) Slide the fan blade back onto the shaft (I used some super glue to help hold it in place) 13) Slide the fan housing back into place 14) Plug the fan into the socket 15) Plug in the fridge to make sure your fix worked (it may take a minute to kick on) 16) Replace the lower cover

Hoover U6317-930 - Turbine Locked Up!


You will need to remove the hood as though changing the belt. Then best to detach the handle/ bag chamber with the black screw at the lower end in the center.
Lay the vac flat and you should see two clamps over the motor housing, one on either side. Undo the clamps and the motor will lift out. There will be four more screws holding the fan shroud onto the motor housing. Remove these and detach the fan end only. Installation is the reverse order. The fan itself will unscrew if replacing,just secure the motor shaft without damaging it.
Polish the motor shaft clean for a new belt, removing burned rubber. I use 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper or steel wool.
Any evidence of a damaged fan blade means a new fan is required.
While you're at it, unscrew the end caps on the brush roll and remove the hair and thread. Then reassemble so it spins freely when holding the end caps. Install a new genuine belt. It will be snug, use the brush to pull it into place.
When reassembling be sure to engage the carpet height control through the lid
If this helps please acknowledge. If not psot back with the next problem

Removing fan blades


Joey Temal is right. After removing any small metal retaining clips (which are obvious and easily removed), you have to pull down ridiculously hard to get the fan blade off. Alternate short jerky pulls with steady downward traction.

To repair 18" lakewood stand fan mod.#HV-18-p


unplug the fan!
1 remove the six screws that hold the front grille on.
2 use an allen wrench to loosen the screw that secures the fan blade assembly to the motor shaft. (screw is between the blades and the motor and it is on tight, make sure that you do not bend the fan blades, this would cause balance problems)
3 remove blade
4 you will now have access to the screws that hold the motor cover in place.
5. when reassembling make sure that the strain relief (or knot in the cord on some models) is inside the motor cover, and that wires are not being pinched.
6. Good luck

Remove coil on back of refrigerator very gently and support the coil against a kitchen chair or counter. On the back of the refrigerator there is an access panel. Remove 4 screws holding the cover. Remove the bottom of the freezer compartment by removing screws and pulling bottom straight out. Remove Styrofoam panel from freezer by cutting tape along side edge. Once the Styrofoam panel is removed you will see fan blades. O n the front of the fan blade there is a spring. Pull the spring off by pulling straight forward with pliers or fingers. Remove the 3 screws holding the fan motor to the refrigerator in the rear access panel. The Motor should now be free. Unplug the plug from the connector by lock latch and pulling straight up. Now you must free the fan blade from the fan motor. Grasp the fan motor and pull straight out. This fan blade is really hard to get off. Try separating the two halves of the blade, where you removed the spring, with a screw driver. The motor is available from Repairclinic.com. Good luck.
