Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I've had the 52" fan installed about one year. Recently the speed has dropped. The motor now hums like it's straining. Could it just need lubrication? If so, where and with what? Thanks

Make sure you don't have a 2 speed motor .. perhaps someone accidentally changed the speed.
A year old motor should not require any maintenance

The ceiling fan motor hums


Hi there,

Over there years, dust can accumulate inside the motor, getting under the contacts that transfer electricity to the motor. The motor needs a minimum amount of energy to work. When the contacts can no longer transfer that amount it will sit there and hum.

Buy some 'canned air'. It's used to clean keyboards and computers. It works great to blow out dust from electronics and motors.

The age of the fan may also be a problem. But if you can spin it by hand, it's likely the dust is the problem.

Best regards,
Mike

There is a humming noise coming from fan no matter what speed it is on. I have run the fan for hours and still humming


The key to a quiet fan is to isolate the motor vibration from all other parts. This occurs, in the majority of fans, in three places: between the motor and the blade brackets, between the blade brackets and the blades, and between the downrod/motor flange and the mounting bracket. Some fans also have vibration-isolating material between the mounting bracket and the ceiling. If your fan makes a noticable humming noise, inspect it for the above mentioned types of vibration-isolating material. With the exception of the rubber flywheel, if your fan is lacking any of the above, they are easy to add and should solve the majority of humming problems. You can always add additional material as rubber washers and spacers are readily available.

Humming noise


If you are using a dimmer switch to operate the fan instead of a fan speed controller, that is the cause of the humming. If you turn down the speed to the lowest setting and the hum gets louder, then your controller needs to be replaced.

Light works, fan does not. Fan motor has low hum but blades don't turn


How old is this? The motor has failed windings and carries a pretty long warranty I believe 25 years was the norm? eric

Fan motor noise


Does the fan seem to wobble when it is operating? If so, the fan blades may be out of balance. You can purchase self-adhesive weights to stick on the top of the blades to get them balanced properly. It is a trial-and error process, but it is the easiest and most cost-effective way of reducing fan noise. Other possible causes might be: the fan is loose in its mounting, or the mounting itself is loose .A wire inside the fan motor may be rubbing against some moving part. Also, the fan unit may not be properly grounded, or wired with reverse polarity., causing a 60 cycle "hum".
