SOURCE: shuting down\off after several minutes of operation.

This thermal switch may be of the type where it is saving power by turning off motor when air is sufficiently cooled. You obviously want the air cooler, so you can place a wire across the two terminals of that switch to defeat the power save. If the switch is to prevent motor over-heating, however, then you cannot jumper that switch. Do this test: open back to locate switch. if switch is located directly on motor housing, then that switch is cannot be jumpered out. if switch is located in air stream, then it may be possible to jumper it out. Try the jumper and observe for many operations of fan useage to ensure jumper is safe. Ensure no bare wires or electric terminals exposed when done.

SOURCE: replacement fan blade for fan

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 keeps cutting off after being taken apart and cleaned

If it was wired wrong it wouldn't run. I would suspect uneven tightening of the motor screws.

SOURCE: How do you clean Patton Floor fan?

The grill is in two halves with the back half attached to the motor. The front with the round patton insignia removes easily by applying leverage with a screwdriver. There are eight spots (at least on mine) where it clips. Be sure to remove any disposable plastic fastener holding the two halves together. Its pretty easy.

Any idea where I can get replacement metal fan blades for a Patton floor fan?


I'm not all up on Patton Model#s, but this is an older unit, correct? You may try contacting Patton (Owned by Holmes now so you may have to go through them)

If they cannot help you, try www.dtvintagefans.org There's collectors there that may have parts fans that they may be willing to sell a blade.

Alternatively, you may try Grainger, as they sell an assortment of blades. You will need to match a blade to your motor though, which should be fairly easy as the Patton fans use a common McMillan motor which most attic fans also use.

Patton 1887 fan blades wont turn


I've had an 1887 since the 90s -- great fan. I have to say that FixinFax (Solution 1 above) probably didn't try to take his unit apart. My blade has stopped rotating several times over the years and I always got it going again by myself. I'm no whiz, just your average amateur handyman. In fact I am fixing the motherbleeper right now because in a week where the heat is 100 degrees it chose to slow down and stop.

Eventually it sucks enough dust into the axle housing so you have to take the motor mechanism apart and clean it. It's not terribly complicated, but you have to note how the electrical and mechanical parts go back together before disassembling. It's a little tricky to get all the housing parts to line up level again, you may have to try a couple times till the blade rotates freely. Wipe out all the dust and gunk buildup. Lubricate the axle with oil, or I just spray with WD-40. Then reassemble.

The only thing I have had to replace is the on-off knob, since it's plastic and it split. Just get a universal knob from your local hardware store.

Fan blade for a U2-20


I have a metal blade for the Patton U2-20 fan listed on ebay. The item number is 160273949463 and the listing ends on Wednesday August 27 at 10.00 p.m. I had this fan for 8 years and the motor has failed. Patton could not replace the motor since this is a discontinued item, and I figured that someone could use another blade for their fan. I hope this helps you!
