All you need to do is take off the cage and blade. There should be a little space in between the shaft and the hole it goes through. That's the front bearing of the fan. Put some oil(3-in-1 blue can oil or zoomspout) in that area and if you can take off the motor and oil the back opening. Reasemmble the fan and run it for a little bit.

It's probably not a good idea to lubricate your fan, as a wet lubricant will cause dirt to bind to moving parts in the motor which will in turn act as an abrasive causing the motor to prematurly fail.
The fan it's self should be sealed at the factory and provide years of mantenance free use.

Do you bypass the run capacitator on a lakewood model hv-18 fan with a 2.4 motor


More than likely it's not the start capacitor why your fan will not run this more than likely it's not the start capacitor why your fan will not run this lubrication try turning the fan motor by hand if it does not turn freely it's lubrication I have answered this another post.

more than likely it is lubrication spray WD-40 into the oil holes after you have unplugged the fan of course Keep turning the fan and you'll notice will start turning more freely apply more oil to the rear of the motor as this is an oil bushing you're putting more oil into

hope this solves your problem

Troubleshooting lakewood fan model hv 18


This one the best brands on the market that I have ever owned.
If the fan motor will not turn on or hums and/or turns slowly more than likely its a lubrication problem.

1. Unplug the fan from the wall remove the 516 screws to the cage

2. Try turning the fan blade by hand if it is tough to turn more than likely it's a lubrication problem

3. You will have two oil holes one in the front one in the back spray WD-40 into these holes, turn the fan blade if it starts to free it up apply more WD-40 and keep turning the blade add more WD-40 until the blade turns freely. Especially in the rear oil hole because this is an oiled bushing that you are adding oil to. Once the fan is turning freely replace the front cage with all the screws plug the fan and I hope this solves your problem. You may add 3 in 1 oil or some other very light lubricating oil periodically.

I hope this solves your problem Mike

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.

Fan blade is not rotating but there is noise


The rotor is stuck and the fan blade will not rotate then a humming noise can be heard. It is due to a bushing problem. It may be stuck due to a hardened accumulated dirt.
  1. Remove the fan blade guard.
  2. Remove the fan blade.
  3. Remove the 4 screws holding the stator assembly.
  4. Pull out the front plate of the motor and the rotor.
  5. Clean the bushing and the rotor.
  6. Lubricate the busing and rotor assembly.
  7. Reassemble in reverse order.
