"Most fan motors for fan over running have an internal overload. once it trips, it will not reset. it is a solid state device. it looks like a flat device or a small bullet device. if you've figured out how to take the fan apart, you could just remove the device and connect the two wires together and the fan will run. you won't have any protection on the motor however. the windings run warm, but if the bearings run dry the motor will slow down and the windings will get hot. this is the reason for the overlaod device - protection. its your call what you want to have."

SOURCE: FTT-R tower fan would oscillate but the fan would not run.

You might have a stripped gear in the tower where it oscillates. Hope this helps!

Good Luck!! I too have one and although I was able to take off a bottom panel and clean it- the important area (fan) proves quite inaccessable. I am very mechanically adept too. Either way felt it was a lot of trouble for nothing- so I used a powerful vacuum blower to blow out all the dust instead. When these fans can be purchased for 50 bucks, new, at Cost Co, it sort of eliminates the need to get real carried away with maintenance.

Throw it away and buy a new one for 20 box at Wal-Mart. It's as simple as that cause to fix it, it'll take a new machine which cost twice the price. I think they made it to last one summer max. Friendly yours

I stupidly tried, in the wee hours half asleep, to force the fan to turn to a certain direction when the oscillation was turned off. Something broke and rattled around, and now the oscillation is...


Unfortunately, no - the manufacturer does not supply replacement parts. It is a throw-away item.
