SOURCE: 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.

Hi nsohorn1,
I see that you are getting scrapping noises from your fan weather it is oscillating or not.
You mentioned that you already put oil but the same thing right, most probably this is nothing to do with lubrication, but can be a possible gear that is not anymore aligned or need alignment or maybe about to give way and needs replacing.
you mentioned that you do not have the manual any more, check this link if you want to just send it in for repairs since there are no manual to be found anywhere online for this product since production has been discontinued.
I hope that this helps.
have a nice day,

    Fan not blowing but the osscilate works?

    This is crazy - the same motor powers the blades and oscillating assembly. If the latter is working then the drive to the blades is no good and/or stipped. The fan should be spinning!!!!!!

    Remove the guard, remove the fan blade. Lay the fan on its back and drip 4 drops of 3 in 1 Oil down the spindle. Turn the spindle by hand about 6 turns and leave it overnight with the spindle upwards. The next day, run the fan with the blade off and see if the squeaking has stopped. If it has, replace the blade and guard.

    If it is still squeaking, it is the bearing at the other end of the motor. That one is not quite so easy to lubricate and usually the motor would need to be fully stripped down, cleaned and lubricated.

    Where to lubricate fan

    What type of fan do you have? If it is a desk or stand fan, you need to add oil to the front bushing/armature (accessible by taking off the fan blade) and to the rear bushing. To reach the rear bushing, you need to take the motor cover off - pull the oscillator push-pull lever up until it disengages, then using a phillips screw driver, unscrew the retaining screw of the motor cover. When the cover is out, you need to unscrew 3 retaining screws on the oscillator assembly at the back of the motor. When the oscillator mechanism is out, you will see the motor armature at the back of the motor (has a threaded end). Add a little oil to the bushing of the armature. Then reassemble (reverse order - secure the oscillator assembly with 3 screws, install the motor cover and screw the back, insert the push-pull lever and you're done). Hope this may help.

    Broken cinni pedestal fan

    rattling fans are an indication of unbalanced fan blades. check for dirt or corrosion on blades Remove the blades and see if the motor still vibrates. If so scrap the unit. You may be able to get new blades but as few places carry fan spares I would hold out hope in that department. Check around the appliance repair shops and see what info you can dig up . May be a contact to the manufacturer on the web will give some answers as to spares

    Remington Hedge Wizard - driver/oscillator assembly broken - motor turns blades do not oscuillate

    Hello There, blades oscillating are usually controlled by the motor. When the motor is rolling then the fan not oscillating is usually a minor problem. Usually the blades are connected to the motor using a rod which is directly connected to the blades.
    If the oscillator assembly is faulty this could need replacement of a part. And this would require expert help. Which part exactly is broken? How well can you handle mechanical assembly parts? i could try to get you an assembly guide to help determine which part is faulty exactly but i need to know the above.
    Hoping to hear from you soonest.
    Thank you for visiting FixYa.

    Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor

    Oscillating table fan makes banging noise when rotating

    mcdevito75 here, Sounds like that oscillating swtich is either a little loose or could use a drop or 2 of 3 in 1 oil. Try to twist offf the oscillating swatch button and see if you can tighten it or put a drop of oil on it.
