Is blade stuck? Remove grill cover and spin the blade to see if there is a mechanical problem. If OK then check the cord for a bad connection at the plug.

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


Hello.

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:

www.holmesproducts.com/Support.aspx

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.

Have an expensive Hunter indoor/outdoor pedestal Fan that stopped working. It just "hums" and does not turn. Please help.


With the fan UNPLUGGED, try to spin the fan blade with a pencil or something that will fit through the blade cage.

If the blade spins easily, there is an electronic problem (control or motor) that must be serviced.

If the fan blade is stuck or very hard to move, the shaft and bearing are probably dirty and need to be cleaned. You can temporarily fix this with a tiny amount (a drop) of WD-40 applied to the shaft where it enters the motor. Spin the blade manually to work the oil into the bearing. If the motor spins freely, the dirty bearing condition is verified. To properly clean the shaft and bearings, the motor must be disassembled.

How do i do it myself to install outdoor bower motor condensor motor 1/4 hospower 350 rpm and also the 5 amp capacitor. If i keep the 10 amp capacitor is that a problem?


Turn off power in all cases. If you are replacing the orignal motor for the 1st time. It might be easier if
you cut the wires near the control box and then wire
nut them together and wrap with electrical tape.

Remove the fan cover and unloosen bolt that hold the
fan to the frame or whatever it might be. After fan is out spray some WD40 that holds the fan blade to
the motor shaft. Measure the distance from the fan
blades to the motor.

Unloosen the screw that holds the fan blade to the
motor shaft.Take sand cloth and try to clean up
the shaft below the blades. Try to tap the fan blade
down towards the motor.If it moves sand the shaft above the blades. Take channel locks and grip the shaft below the blades, try turning the fan blade while
holding the shaft until it spins freely and the remove.

If the motor came with a 5mfd capacitor use it.

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.

Fan blade does not immediately spin when turned on; loud


The motor bearings need machine (like sewing machine oil).
Try a quick spray of WD40 or Liquid Wrench, but use machine oil, soon.
Look for an "oil hole" on top of the motor; there may be two of them.

Motor can be heard going but the blade wont spin!!


There is usually a pin in the shaft of the motor, that corrosponds with a slot in the fan blades, it sounds to me like either (a) the pin somehow came out, or (b) the slot in the blades is rounded. Hope this helps

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.

Maytag upright freezer model MQU1556AEW


I experienced the same problem last week with my freezer. Apparently the change in temperature during defrosting allows the blade locking mechanism to slide on the motor shaft during the spinning operation. The blade pulls itself along the shaft until it comes in contact with the motor mounting bolt. If your freezer just stops getting super cold, but remains cool and you don't hear the fan spinning, remove the inside back panel and check the fan blades for freedom of movement. I almost disposed of the freezer this past week but decided to make one last check of the mechanisms.
