Question about Lakewood HV 18-c Floor / Box Fan
My lakewood fan HV18 just stopped. Spinning the shaft does no good. I'm thinking it's a capacitor. Company went out of business in May. A local company MCM electronics sells all sorts of capacitors. Or perhaps a motor rewinding company might be the ticket. I will put capacator on a meter! What do you think?
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.
