Question about Bionaire BT45RC Tower Fan

1 Answer

Makes a loud noise when it is turned on. Can't open it.

This problem has just started. The motor makes a loud noise when I turn the fan on. I tried to unscrew the body but cannot open it fully to check to see what could be the problem.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help in advance.

If it is making a loud humming sound it is probably getting weak and will have to be replaced. Is it doing it in all speeds? Motor replacement would probably not be worthwhile unless it is a very expensive unit. I'd opt to replace the unit.

Cooling fan makes a loud noise


You may need to remove the blower motor and check for debris in the box, or a failing bearing on the motor.

Outside fan wants to start, but stops after 5 secs or so.


Turn off all power. Pull the cover off and lay it upside down so that you can reach the fan. Then turn the unit on and try spinning the fan blade with your hand while it trys to turn and makes the noise you observed. If it is seizing up or very difficult to turn by hand, the bearings are bad on your motor and the motor will need to be replaced. You might be able to lubricate the motor and buy a little bit of time but expect to have problems in the near future.
IF the motor does not seize up and starts spinning without resistance and runs for several minutes or so, you may have a failed capacitor.

If you push the start button and you here a buzzing sound, This sounds like the motor is bad.

Somthing you can try and this might not work. but open the dryer door and turn the drum a littel bit then close the door and try to start it. If it starts running again then you have hit a bad spot on the motor.

If it just still just makes the buzzing noise then the motor is most likley bad.

the colorwheel motor bearings are starting to go. you'll need to replace the colorwheel. you can get the part from a sharp service center and do it yourself or send it to one for repair. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

Optoma ep716 continuous loud vibration noise when turned on.


the fan motor could be failing. turn it on with the top off. if one of the fans is moving slower, that'd be the one. since this is a dlp projector, the colorwheel motor berings might be on their way out as well. both need replacement.
