SOURCE: We bought an Airworks Box fan from Canadian Tire

If there is one on your fan, it is a cup or small tube running to the bearings on the motor. Typically use a light machine oil. Usually 2-3 drops only. You do not wish to over oil as this will get into the electric motor part.
Some fans have a wick that sits above the bearing and allows the oil to into the bearings. If the wick is dirty it is better to replace rather than try to clean the wick itself. Dirty oil, and the wick being impregnated with contaminants reduces it's effectiveness.
Translation: bearings could run dry and this will really cause problems with wear/friction/Noise.

Check the bearings:
Blackened lubricant shows the effects of electrical currents which can create hot spots within the bearing. Check clean if you can.
The bearings may be too far gone causing the blade shaft not to turn freely.

Good luck!
Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have an Airworks ceiling fan/light with remote. Worked fine for years. Now battery is being drained very quick.. in a matter of a couple of weeks! Replaced battery but it drains in a couple of weeks

Stuck button, spill on remote causing power drain or most probably you got a batch of weak batteries. Try a different brand and make sure they are alakaline.

SOURCE: Airworks ceiling fan, Model AF3DN. Can't take off light bulb...won't twist off.

Try and hold the socket while you twist the bulb out, other than that have no suggestion.

SOURCE: Light bulb on Airworks ceiling fan. Can't get it off...can't twist it.

Break the bulb glass(use a rag to keep glass off you and wear safety glasses) then using a pair of needle nosed pliers bend/crumple the soft aluminum bulb base inward to release it from the socket.

I bought Airworks 9" All Metal Triple Drum Fan with remote at Bj's Wholesale Club in August 2013. Two of the fans stopped working already and I haven't been able to find the website for Airwalk? I lost the...

Go to bj's in person and open a airworks box & read and copy down telephone #, &/or website. Put paper or manual back in box for eventual buyer.
PS ,I think i also seen airworks fan at walmarts, so you could try there too. Fans soon out of season & then ,they have none in store to get info from.
