Where can I find a motor for my pedestal fan?


You need to post the make and model. Also realize that the motor could be custom made for that company or by that company and a replacement might not be available or it might cost as much as a new fan.

Have an expensive Hunter indoor/outdoor pedestal Fan that stopped working. It just "hums" and does not turn. Please help.


With the fan UNPLUGGED, try to spin the fan blade with a pencil or something that will fit through the blade cage.

If the blade spins easily, there is an electronic problem (control or motor) that must be serviced.

If the fan blade is stuck or very hard to move, the shaft and bearing are probably dirty and need to be cleaned. You can temporarily fix this with a tiny amount (a drop) of WD-40 applied to the shaft where it enters the motor. Spin the blade manually to work the oil into the bearing. If the motor spins freely, the dirty bearing condition is verified. To properly clean the shaft and bearings, the motor must be disassembled.

Humming noise from motor of oscillating fan.


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.

Motor can be heard going but the blade wont spin!!


There is usually a pin in the shaft of the motor, that corrosponds with a slot in the fan blades, it sounds to me like either (a) the pin somehow came out, or (b) the slot in the blades is rounded. Hope this helps

Accutek stand fan just hums, won't turn


That means the bearings are dry and have locked. Simply open the motor cover by removing the screw and pull the oscillation knob by rocking it side by side gently to have free access to the motor.

MAKE SURE THE FAN IS UNPLUG FIRST. Use cream type grease on both ends of the shaft. After applying the grease rotate the blades until they're freely and you feel the blades have released.

Place the motor cover back and the oscillation knob and plug-in the fan. Leave it on HIGH for 10-minutes or more to make the rotor loose with the grease.
