Capacitor may be defective or the motor is shorted or open.

I HAVE A LAKEWOOD FAN MODEL # HV-14C, and the motor would stop after running the fan for awhile but now the fan does nothing ? now what?


Hi, If you have no sound at all and the fan stopped in mid-use it is probably the thermo protection located under the shrink wrap where the blue power wire comes into connection with the motor field winding. The continuity between the plug end and the blue wire at the Capacitor will be broken. Great care must be taken to prevent breaking the winding wire. The thread-like wire that is painted with varnish or shellac is connected befor the thermo protector, so you don't really have to actually open it up, rather, simply jumper the connection with wire of same gauge and put the new thermo protector inline just befor the capacitor.

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

All of the sudden my fan stopped working completely. It does have a lot of dust in it. It is 12 inches and says Model HV-9 C. I tried to plug it in several different plugs, still doesn't work.


take front off of fan. then blow the motor out good to get rid of dirt and dust. also when apart oil the front and back of armature, to make it run better.

My lakewood high speed floor model HV-21T stopped running. After shutting off it started running again but shut off again and this time the motor and cage was extremely hot.Also are new motors available on...


Try replacing the "start-run" capacitor. It is the rectangular black box mounted on a tab next to the motor inside the cage, two wires attached (cut them close as close to the capacitor body as possible). Other symptoms include not moving at all with a hum, and getting very hot. The capacitor is a 5% tolerance 8 microfarad rated at 250vac. It doesn't have to be the exact form factor but it does have to be heat rated at or above 70C per design parameters of the fan.

WARNING! Make sure to protect the leads properly because this capacitor is connected directly to the power mains during operation. If one of the leads electrically shorted against the fan housing or cage could cause a catastrophic failure of the fan, and possibly a fire, and possibly give a nasty shock to whoever was switching on the fan at the time.

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.

My lakewood HV18 just stopped. Spinning the shaft


I think you need to buy a new fan. Unless this thing cost several hundred dollars it isn't worth rewinding and a capacitor isn't likely to cause it to stop working, the cap is for STARTING it spinning anyway and sometimes they are used to HELP it run better, but it will try to run if you spin it and since your's does nothing, more than likely the windings are gone.

I have a lakewood window box fan model hv-18-wr it has a defond 6a 120 vac rotory sw type dye-3606 with 3 speed forward and three reverse and an off. the motor is a samsung model hv-18-wr(lw.3v) s/n...


did you take the out the old switch/ if not follow the colors to the switch and to the motor. you will find numbers on the switch, the wires coming off the motor go into the switch, if you have the light and the switch that run the temperature you can take that out and just run the wires direct to the switch and follow them up from the motor to your switch and like i said red wire, blue wire,white wire,orange wire,brown wire,yellow wire,2 black wires,you should have these wires coming off the motor and they go to the switch,the front of the switch has these number on front A in upper left and on the right side S 2 the bottom left side should have S 1 and the right side of the bottom should have B, you will need a small screwdriver to push the small metal plate that hold the wire in , just push light in the hold and the wire will come out, make a map of what wire go wear and you in a new fan.if you took it apart already then i have to tell what color go wear on the switch from the motor.

Window Fan switch bad


Steve, Your fan model is HV-18-WR; I have 2 with the same problem. I can't find a source for DYE-3606 switches either. Here is one source for rotary switches; one might be suitable: http://www.alliedelec.com/Catalog/Indices/Products.asp?sid=46BBAA8076DBE17F&N=4294828748 I can draw a diagram of how the existing switch is connected, but I don't know how that would translate to a replacement switch.
