Thermal protection

The thermo protection is located under the shrink wrap where the blue power wire comes into connection with the motor field winding and the cap feed. The continuity between the plug end and the blue wire at the Capacitor will be broken.

I HAVE A LAKEWOOD FAN MODEL # HV-14C, and the motor would stop after running the fan for awhile but now the fan does nothing ? now what?

Hi, If you have no sound at all and the fan stopped in mid-use it is probably the thermo protection located under the shrink wrap where the blue power wire comes into connection with the motor field winding. The continuity between the plug end and the blue wire at the Capacitor will be broken. Great care must be taken to prevent breaking the winding wire. The thread-like wire that is painted with varnish or shellac is connected befor the thermo protector, so you don't really have to actually open it up, rather, simply jumper the connection with wire of same gauge and put the new thermo protector inline just befor the capacitor.

I have a HV-20G floor fan, And I have no contitnuity between the "white"--(common ) wire and the"red-low", "blue-mid", or "black-hi" wirres.I have 7.3 ohms between the blue&black and blue&red on a...

In that particular model, there is a small thermo fuse connecting the white wire and the yellow wire(there are 2 yellow wires coming from the capacitor). It's hidden in the coil so you can just cut the wick in that area an pull those two wires and you are going to see the fuse(small square shape one).

My lakewood high speed floor model HV-21T stopped running. After shutting off it started running again but shut off again and this time the motor and cage was extremely hot.Also are new motors available on...

Try replacing the "start-run" capacitor. It is the rectangular black box mounted on a tab next to the motor inside the cage, two wires attached (cut them close as close to the capacitor body as possible). Other symptoms include not moving at all with a hum, and getting very hot. The capacitor is a 5% tolerance 8 microfarad rated at 250vac. It doesn't have to be the exact form factor but it does have to be heat rated at or above 70C per design parameters of the fan.

WARNING! Make sure to protect the leads properly because this capacitor is connected directly to the power mains during operation. If one of the leads electrically shorted against the fan housing or cage could cause a catastrophic failure of the fan, and possibly a fire, and possibly give a nasty shock to whoever was switching on the fan at the time.

Are replacement motors available for these fans? Lakewood HV 18 Lakewood HV 21 Lakewood HV 21T

mcdevito75 here, If the fan is not too old I would figure yes, but a replacement motor will cost as a new fan, if not more, then you have to install and the blades are a presss fit to the motor.

did you take the out the old switch/ if not follow the colors to the switch and to the motor. you will find numbers on the switch, the wires coming off the motor go into the switch, if you have the light and the switch that run the temperature you can take that out and just run the wires direct to the switch and follow them up from the motor to your switch and like i said red wire, blue wire,white wire,orange wire,brown wire,yellow wire,2 black wires,you should have these wires coming off the motor and they go to the switch,the front of the switch has these number on front A in upper left and on the right side S 2 the bottom left side should have S 1 and the right side of the bottom should have B, you will need a small screwdriver to push the small metal plate that hold the wire in , just push light in the hold and the wire will come out, make a map of what wire go wear and you in a new fan.if you took it apart already then i have to tell what color go wear on the switch from the motor.

Need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help

you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

Cleaned a fan, now it's broken!!!

Is this the speed switch itself? These multi-speed fans have 4 or 5 wires which come from the motor which go into the speed select switch. The wiring may have the ends stripped, and this stripped end just pushes into the hole on the switch, and a little metal piece grips that stripped end.

Anyway, one possibility is to contact the manufacturer- look on their website or give them a call, see if a tech can give that info. Another poss. is to locate an identical fan and note the wiring locations on it. You can also experiment trial and error, though caution needs to be exercised here.
