SOURCE: NuTone LS100 fan is squiling when it runs.

Sounds like it may actually be the bushing pack inside if the motor. Spinning the blade by hand is not going to spin it fast enough to hear the problem. If the unit is new, I would recommend returning it for exchange of a new unit. If it more than 1yr old, it's out of warranty and will be cheaper to just replace it rather than repairing it.

For less than $100 you can buy a newer, more efficient model. Depending on the size of the room is how should judge what unit to buy. An under sized unit will not pretty much nothing, except make noise and remove some of the steam. Remember to buy a fan with the lowest SONE rating as it will have the highest quality motor housing and best air removal.

Fan needs a push to spin

Check the capacitor in the cup of the fan. It's usually a black box with wires going to the pull chain switch.

My air conditioner tries to turn on, air comes out of vents but isn't cold, and outside the blades on the AC unit are not spinning. I hear a noise when it tries to turn on but they don't start...

Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor

Hello, I replaced a light fixture on my existing Emerson ceiling fan. The light worked right away but the blades didn't turn. I could hear power going to the motor so I went back into the switch cup and...

Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    Vornado Circulating Fan - motor will run but blades will not turn.

    Does the motor spin, but the blade is not turning?
    The motor has a D shaped shaft. If the hole in the blade that the shaft goes in is rounded, then the blade will spin. In that case you need a new blade. Vornado can supply that.

    Motor hums but blades don't spin

    It should have something in motor block blocking the motor to turn.
    when it is OFF position ,you try to turn it by hand to see if it spins freely or not ? You may hear a sound of friction that blocks the motor. if this is the case try to find a local electrical expert to unblock the motor..
    Good luck.

    Fan blade won't turn, but will slowly turn if given a push. What is the problem? How do I fix it?

    Replace the fan motor capacitor. If that does not correct the problem you will have to replace the fan motor.
