Question about Lakewood HV 18-c Floor / Box Fan

Open Question

LAKEWOOD hv20-cr Put the fan on a dimmer to slow down the motor. Motor turned real slowly then stopped altogether. Back of the motor got pretty hot. Now won't run at all. Checked the start capacitor. It's out. How do I check the thermal fuse(s) or windings. Does it have a thermal fuse for each speed? It has a remote control, and push button switches for the speeds on the fan. Inside the switch box five wires come in. . In order they are brown, white, red, blue, and black.The red, blue and black lead to the fan The white and brown seem to be from a common wire on the cord. The wires are all in a plug with a little slot in them. Can I use this to test the continuity? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Lakewood HV-18 fan... how to wire switch?

My switch unit also fell apart as I took the back off and I didn't get to see the correct position of the switch. After much trial and error, I found this to be the initial "Off" position (see photo)

Blower mtor on 1997 Chevy 1/2 ton 4wd runs real slow or not at all,some times it speeds up to near normal speed.


Yes, the blower motor is bad, replace it. This is exactly what you say, brushes are worn.

I got a 1995 s420 blower blows good then slows down almost to a stop , ive replaced the resistor it worked for like 2 min. blew hard then i think the blowermotor resistor burned out and completely stop...


I would agree. If you wire it direct the wires should not get hot.
The resistor will get hot under normal conditions because the resistance is how the motor speed is controlled.
So you are probably right the motor is failing.
You could get a new motor and hook it up without installing it to compare.

Motor hums but fan blades will not turn


If motor hums and does not spin, then motor has gone bad.
As motors get older, the motor begin to slow down.
Motors are designed to pull-in cool air across spinning coils inside the rotor.
Once the motor slows down, the motor no longer gets cool air, so it gets hotter, and then overheats, and then rotor no longer spins.
In years past, motors were taken to local electric shop for rewinding Then the motor went back into service.
Today, the motor is thrown in the landfill unless recycled at local scrap metal dealer.
It's a waste that we no longer have small repai9r shops to fix consumer goods like fans, and instead the economy causes us to import another motor because it's cheaper.

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.

Fan moves slowly ,compressor still hot even with a portable fan blowing on condensor ,but temps are back to normal. What would cause the fan to blow slowly and there is no obsructions


Ralph78yanks,
Your condenser fan (fan motor by compressor) is a variable speed and controlled by a computer board and compressor speed. If the fan motor slows down and the compressor is running in high, the unit can over heat and cause temperature issues in refrigerator sections. GE has a program which can see actual fan RPMs of motor. As I research this incomplete model number (7 possible different models) I see they all use the same fan motor Part# WR60X10209, this is a DC motor. Make sure you fan has not melted also. The heat from the compressor can melt the should or blade when this motor fails. I hope this information helps you..

Hi i have a mk4 golf, my front wipers were slow but now have stopped altogether, any ideas what problem could be?


If they slowly died it is most likely the wiper motor. Over time the brushes in the motor will wear down and the motor will need replacement.

Fan started running real slow. Might need the small black module attachd to the motor


There is a motor capacitor on the fan that is probably going bad...in order to replace this capacitor, you will need to obtain the correct component either from the manufacturer or from an appliance parts center...be sure to hook it up the same way as the old one is hooked up..

Fan slows down and also stops suddenly on its own


motor windings are going bad. The winding swell as electricity goes through them putting pressure on the shaft. The reason it shuts down is for safety so it won't overheat and start a fire. Recommend replacement. Hope this helped Good luck

Heater fan blowing intermittently or not at all


Most likely it does, if you can hit the motor and it will run. I can't say for sure but you might want to chk. to see if you got a heater blower motor resister. There located (if its got one) around the heater motor and it controls blower speeds, might be worth checking out.
