Fan stopped I've had my fan for about a year and the blades just stopped turning. Still getting power and other features of the fan still work. Is there a way I can fix this or is it time to buy a new one.

I have one of these pieces of junk. The motor swarmed, so the rest of the fan is perfect. I'll sell it for $10.00 plus shipping.

SOURCE: Fan malfunctioning

I've fixed the same problem with my fan. I’m not suggesting that you use my fix, but this is what I did:

It turns out that the red wire going into the fan motor has an inline mini fuse built into it. I had to remove the motor and open it up in order to get at the mini fuse.

I guess the manufacturer really made this one with "no user serviceable parts inside" unless you are a technician or have a technician friend.

What I did first was to check continuity between the motor windings. With the motor wires disconnected, I measured about 30 ohms between the red wire (return) and the other separate motor winding wires: yellow, blue and black. Since the red wire didn't have any connection to the other wires, bingo I found the problem. The windings don't have a return path to complete the circuit. I then had to open the motor to fix the problem.

I was sure to mark the motor housing with index marks to insure correct reassembly after the repair. Once I had the motor apart, I was careful not to stress the motor windings. They are very fragile. I carefully cut away the black shrink tubing on the red wire (this wire is the common return for the 3 speed motor). This revealed something that looked like a resistor between the red wire and the other motor windings. It is actually a 10 amp mini fuse.

I didn't have a replacement fuse that would fit inside the motor as the original so I soldered a jumper across the fuse, covered it with shrink tubing and put an inline fuse holder on the red wire outside the motor. If the fuse blows again, it will be easy to replace. I replaced all broken plastic cable ties that held the windings or cable harness in place.

I then cleaned and lubricated the motor's bushings. I used white lithium grease. The friction created from dry bushings is probably what caused the fuse to blow in the first place.

I reassembled the motor. The motor armature should spin freely if reassembly is correct. If not, redo.

This seems a little long, but it actually worked. The fan is once again pushing that cool breeze.

Also, a note to technicians; a pretty decent application circuit and schematic of the fan’s controller unit IC (SC8207) can be found in pdf format at:

SOURCE: oscillating table fan makes banging noise when rotating

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.

Hunter Douglas fan humming noise

Which make/model do you have. If you bought a store brand ( Home Depot or Lowes ) it's a low-end Hunter. All you can do is take it back & get a new one and hope it's better. You can also try a fan control and see if that helps. Remember, you get what you pay for!

Vornado fan Model CR1-0023 , Type 750 I bought this fan used 3 days ago. Seemed to work fine but not as powerfully as another new Vornado shop fan I have. Today the fan blades stopped turning. I can...

I have had the same model for almost ten years, and have had to lubricate it twice - both times when the fan stopped rotating. It's obvious that Vornado never intended the bearings to be serviced, but if you're patient, it can be done. You must remove the front louver section (press the three clips inward gently). Then firmly pull the fan toward the front, off the shaft. Then remove the four nuts on the front of the motor housing - you'll note that the bolts appear to be free-floating, but that allows re-assembly after the bearings are lubricated. When the nuts are removed, firmly pull the front of the motor housing toward you. This may require a firm pull or GENTLE prying, as the rear bearing sometimes doesn't want to let go. When you have the front portion of the housing and shaft out, hold the housing and pull the shaft out of the front bearing. Again, this may require a steady firm pull straight back. When the rotor & shaft are free, you'll need some very fine emery paper to remove the varnish that's built up on the shaft (it's unmistakable where to clean the shaft.) And I never attempt to do anything with the front and rear bearing themselves - too much work, and cleaning the shaft does the job for me. Then clean everything up carefully and lubricate the shaft where it enters the bearings (and maybe a drop in the rear bearing itself.) I use a very fine machine oil that I bought at Sears, but I think any good oil would work. Then, it's re-assembly time - shaft into front bearing, shaft into rear bearing as the motor housing is put back together (lining up the bolts), four nuts on the bolts & tighten (firmly, no gorilla), press fan back on shaft (don't force it too far on - it'll stop when it's in the right place), plug in and check, re-attach front louver (just press - the clips will snap easily into place.)

Bionaire bt16 towerr fan not working. Only slight beep noise when turned on. Two years old.

Possible that the capacitor is weak and so does not power the coils to turn rotor. you will need to check the free movement of the blades, is no use some oil to free the rotor blades, if the blades are free then check the continuity of the coils specially if they are heating up , if so check the capacitor.

My fan is not rotating when I connected to plug. There is no burning smell or anything. How can I fix the problem? Thanks in advance


I have a Holmes pedestal fan that does this every few years. I have had this fan for about 10 years.

Unplug the fan and remove the fan blade guard. The fan blade should spin easily when you tap the edge of the fan blades with your finger. If the blade barely moves and abruptly stops, the bearings are dirty and need to be cleaned and oiled with 10W non-detergent motor oil. A quick-fix is a tiny bit of WD-40 where the motor shaft (the rod that the fan blade is mounted on) meets the bearing (the part of the motor that the shaft spins on). To properly fix this, you must oil both the front and back motor bearings which requires removal of the motor housing.

If the fan blade spins easily and you are certain that the fan is getting power (try a different outlet) the motor may be bad. Likewise, if the fan blade will not move at all. I do not know if Holmes sells motors for these fans. Here is their online support website:

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

P.S.: Never turn a motor-operated appliance on for more than a second if you know it's not working. That will cook the motor windings.

One fan blade stopped working and is hot to touch

The motor is 'locked up' that's where the heat is coming from. It may have a bad bushing or something is jammed. Give it a good look over you may see it. Does the blade feel hard to turn?

Blades stopped on my 02 cool fan.

I love the 02 Cool rechargeable/battery operated fans and have them running in my home and office daily. However, they do have a limited lifespan. I get about 6-9 months of daily use before the fan motor goes dead and the blades stop turning. However, I'll keep buying them. I live in an area where we frequently lose power and the rechargeable/battery operated feature pays off when it does so on a hot day.
