Question about Windchaser 3-way Oscillating Fan
I have a Windchaser oscillating fan that suddenly quit working. When I turn it on the motor just hums and the blades act like they are trying to turn but won't. I got it going at first by taking the cover off and manually turning the blades, but now that wont work. I took the motor apart and lubricated the shaft with wd40. No luck so I believe it is in the motor. Any way to test it?
Wd-40 is not a very good lubricant. It only lasts fror a few days and then dries up again. In order to get your fan working again, take some 3-in one oil and put a drop at the bearing side of each bearing top and bottom with the shaft upright. Spuin and tap the motor briskly with a small tack hammer or screw driver handle. This will impact and allow the oil to get into the bearings Keep tapping and turning until you feel it lighten up a spin freely. Turn it over and do the same thing again. I garuntee that all will be fine after this.

Testimonial: "Unbelievably fast response - off to try to fix it!"
Lubrication problem? Check if the fan is stiff. If it moves with ease using your hand to spin it without power, also check if it has a start up capacitor. Then check it, bulging, shorted or dried up. Replace it if this appears.
Just for input.
