I have a Lasko HVB, but this might apply to your fan:
Without taking the thing totally apart, here's an idea you can try: The power cord on some models (like mine) has a "warning" tag. I had the damn thing all apart when I noticed this. (Well, who reads 'em??) Seems like there's a mini-fuse in the PLUG itself that, when it blows, there's nothing you can do about it except send it for repair to a factory authorized yadda yadda yadda. Who's going to do that??
If you plug in and NOTHING HAPPENS, here's what might turn out to be an cheap and easy fix: cut off a few inches of the plug end of the cord and go buy another plug at Ace. Heavy duty might be appropriate: don't think I'd want a lamp plug on this baby. Get one that's easy to install. Bring the cut off piece and they'll help you find exactly what you want.
If you want to open it up, there's a screw behind the Lasko medallion, remove that and you can snap out the grille. You can see where the cord comes in from the back of the blower housing. Test the line voltage. If you're not getting about 120VAC, it's the plug.
If that's not it, IMHO, without some knowledge or a schematic, you're screwed. That'd be me. It wasn't the plug.

It is possible that the main capacitor is faulty and so the coils is not enerrgised to start.
So check winding and check the capacitor for open.
Test capacitor by charging both the pins to mains voltage and shorting the pins to see if charge is retained.If retained the capacitor is good, if not replace.

I just replaced the thermal fuse in the motor case. You can find replacements at Radio Shack. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12505747&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PPC&utm_term=55048814&utm_content=Exact&utm_campaign=PLA&%7bifmobile:ds_dest_url=http%3A%2F%2Fm.radioshack.com%2Fradioshack%2Fproduct%2Fdetail.do%3FitemId%3d12505747%26utm_source%3dGoogle%26utm_medium%3dPPC%26utm_term%3d55048814%26utm_content%3dExact%26utm_campaign%3dPLA%7d&cagpspn=pla&gclid=CIjo_4_ylrkCFUcGKgodMG0AAA&gclsrc=ds.ds
You will need to open the motor case and carefully cut the heat shrink tube off where the red wire connects to the white wire. I do mean carefully, as you don't want to cut the tiny coil wire soldered to the white wire and the thermal fuse. Cut the old one out, leaving some of the old lead to solder the new one too. Be sure to add new heat shrink tube before soldering the new one in so you can get it all back properly. This certainly took some time and patiance but was better than throwing it out and spending another 60 to 70 bucks.
