Fan makes clicking noise when oscillating

I have a stand up fan that, when it oscillates, it gets stuck when it turns all the way left or right and makes a loud clicking noise. When I push it or spin it, it usually stops, but then does it again the other way. I tried to turn it and take the screw out, but nothing works. Please let me know what to do. Thank you.

Re: Fan makes clicking noise when oscillating

Inside the motor there is a nylon gear that is broken. the oscillation operates off a gear connected to the motor drive.

Why won't my fan oscillate?

There is a little arm attached to the motor that makes the fas oscillate. If it gets disconnected you will have that issue. Check the linkage.

Fan will not oscillate anymore. it makes a clicking noise like it's stuck

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
f the fan doesn't work at all, make sure power is on at the outlet, then test the power cord . Test the motor and replace it if it is faulty. Clean and test the speed-control switch and service it if it is faulty . If the fan works on only some speeds, clean and test the speed-control switch .
If an oscillating fan doesn't move from side to side, check the clutch knob, then the gear assembly. If the gear assembly is faulty, you can service it (see below).
If the fan blades turn slowly, check the blades for a loose hub and tighten if needed. If the fan shaft is noisy or dry, lubricate it.

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.

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.
