Question about Vornado Silver Swan Table Fan
I have had 2 Vornado silver swans for about 8 years. They are only used in the summer, maybe for 2 months out of the year & both have the same problem. They were once nice, fairly quite fans, but have gotten progressively noisier. After about the 1st year I could no longer use the oscillating feature because of noise; now even stationary position is somewhat loud.
Oscillating noisy is somewhat one sided. Started out as a creaking noise when it would reach one side. Now it just sounds like an airplane is in the living room - but still more predominant one one side. Anyway, can't use the oscillation at all because of this.
More troubling is that the overall volume of the fan has increased in the stationary position. I took off the cage, removed the blade assembly & cleaned it well. I couldn't disassemble further than this because the screws are really tight & seem to be made out of a rather soft metal. (Trying to avoid stripping the screw heads).
The fan is still noisy & the rather brief instructions say to NOT oil the motor. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to remedy this situations. They were a bit expense & I'd rather not replace them...
The electric motor bearings and/or brushes have worn. soft metal screws is an indication of the quality of the motor.not good. sometimes units are of nice design, look and high price but they throw in a cheap chineese motor. all you can do is put a few drops of oil on the motor bearings, its ok to do when this worn out
