I could sometimes get it to start spinning by banging on it. Finally took it apart. Lots of small screws, all small phillips. As I suspected, the "thrust bearing," which supports the rotating components, had become "stiff." I thought that it would be a non-friction (ball bearing), but it is only a bushing, with washers supporting the shaft. With the motor opened up, I greased the bearing with petroleum jelly, and reassembled everything. It is spinning very quietly now. Final comment - this is probably more work than the average fix-it person would want to take on, but it is doable. It took about two hours, start to finish. I could do it in less than one hour now that I know how to do it.

The bearings on the motor are dry and need oil. It's really not made to be oiled, but you may be able to take it apart and get some oil to the bearings if you want to mess with it.

Hi suedevito,

In case an electrical appliance does not do anything anymore, I always first check the fuse(s). There can be a fuse in the electrical plug (in case of UK-type of plug for example) and possibly also somewhere within the fan's housing. In case you do not know how to measure a fuse, just simply replace all the fuses in one go with a new fuse of the same (!) rating. I hope this will solve your problem.

Good luck!

Lasko's are good for stripping the gear in the base that makes it oscillate. If it's still under warranty, they will send you a new fan.

How does the "Ionizer" work on the Lasko 48" Wind Curve Tower Fan ? Shouldn't there be a HEPA filter to change or something to clean once in a while ??


I'm not exactly sure, but I think that an IONIZER has nothing more than metal blades inside that 'capture' dust/debris and contaminants from the air on the blades. There should be a handle to lift up on and remove the long blades.

You rinse the blades with warm soapy water, dry them and put them back in. Maybe I'm thinking of something else, but to me, that is what an ionizer is. Hope this helps at least some.

Best, Jennifer

I have a Lasko HVB, but this might apply to your fan:

Without taking the thing totally apart, here's an idea you can try: The power cord on some models (like mine) has a "warning" tag. I had the damn thing all apart when I noticed this. (Well, who reads 'em??) Seems like there's a mini-fuse in the PLUG itself that, when it blows, there's nothing you can do about it except send it for repair to a factory authorized yadda yadda yadda. Who's going to do that??

If you plug in and NOTHING HAPPENS, here's what might turn out to be an cheap and easy fix: cut off a few inches of the plug end of the cord and go buy another plug at Ace. Heavy duty might be appropriate: don't think I'd want a lamp plug on this baby. Get one that's easy to install. Bring the cut off piece and they'll help you find exactly what you want.

If you want to open it up, there's a screw behind the Lasko medallion, remove that and you can snap out the grille. You can see where the cord comes in from the back of the blower housing. Test the line voltage. If you're not getting about 120VAC, it's the plug.

If that's not it, IMHO, without some knowledge or a schematic, you're screwed. That'd be me. It wasn't the plug.

Good luck!
