My daughter took the face off the fan, held the blades still for quite some time and let go. They didn't move at all. It smells like it is burning, it's hot and I tried a new outlet still doesn't work. I...
your daughter burnt out your fan motor windings. you have 2 options.
1. buy a new fan. at today's prices, this is your best & easiest option But, you have to learn to be a comparitive shopper. start by going to amazon.com & looking at the fans ,the fan prices and if you get free shipping or have to pay and how much 4 the shipping. Next, go to ebay.com and type the name & model of the fan you are interested in. you may get an operitunity to buy a used fan there at a reduced price. note this down on paper but remember that ebay usually has only 1 or 2 of these items , and if you come back 2 days later,the add is gone . Ebay has a buy it now price and an auction price. I hate auctions, because you have to wait 7 or 10 days for the auction to be over & you might not get the item if some one else outbids you and you dont get the item for 3 weeks after the auction first started. If you really dont need something & dont mind waiting a month,that might be fun for some people,but not me. I need something ,i want it yesterday.I dont need something,i forget about it altogether. get at least 3 prices before buying because that way ,you at least have some idea of what the item is going for.SERIOUS SHOPPERS, who only want to buy for bottom $, go to google.com--or -bing.com or-yahoo.com--or ask.com & type the make & model # of the item they are looking for a deal on into the search box. You might have to go to 15 or 20 web sites, but somewhere along all that
searching, you will find your item drastically discounted.
True example, I went to home depot & looked at a 2013 homelite,16 inch, 42 cc gasoline chain saw for $179.99 plus 6.35% sales tax. after about 3 hours searching on the internet with google and bing, I bought that saw ,advertised as being
factory reconditioned for $78.65 with free shipping to first time buyers. I got a brand new ,never run, not a scratch on it anywheres gas chain saw and saved $100.00 from home depots price. It was the same year,make and model as home depot's 179.99 saw ,delevered free to my door for $78.65
that is why i dont recommend that you attempt to replace the burnt out fan motor. repair parts distrributors charge you at least twice what they paid for the part. if the motor cost them $50.00 they want between $100.00 to $139.95 for it. and then ,you still need to pay the repairman his time & labor.
If you shop like i told you to, you can probably replace the fan with a new one ,for 1/2 of what you originally paid for it, through the power of internet search engines. PS also a good place to ask questions,get answers and learn things by reading previously writen articles about whatever you are inquiring about.
customer reviews at amazon.com are good to learn about something youthink you might buy. You find out if others love it or if it is a piece of junk. read both the good reviews and the bad reviews. I like to read the bad reviews first, to get an idea whats bad about the item, I may look for a higher quality brand if the cheap one has too many bad reviews.
BE AN INFORMED CONSUMER,BEFORE PURCHASING.
