Unplug the fan!
1 remove the six screws that hold the front grille on.
2 use an allen wrench to loosen the screw that secures the fan blade assembly to the motor shaft. (screw is between the blades and the motor and it is on tight, make sure that you do not bend the fan blades, this would cause balance problems)
3 remove blade
4 you will now have access to the screws that hold the motor cover in place.
5. when reassembling make sure that the strain relief (or knot in the cord on some models) is inside the motor cover, and that wires are not being pinched.
6. Good luck

Manufacturers are prone to hide screws for cosmetic reasons. See if there is a stick-on label around the switch area. If so, feel across the face of the label for holes behind it. If there are, use an ice pick or small screwdriver to poke through the label and see if there are screws in the holes. If screws are there, removing them will probably allow you to remove the switch cover.

Do you bypass the run capacitator on a lakewood model hv-18 fan with a 2.4 motor


More than likely it's not the start capacitor why your fan will not run this more than likely it's not the start capacitor why your fan will not run this lubrication try turning the fan motor by hand if it does not turn freely it's lubrication I have answered this another post.

more than likely it is lubrication spray WD-40 into the oil holes after you have unplugged the fan of course Keep turning the fan and you'll notice will start turning more freely apply more oil to the rear of the motor as this is an oil bushing you're putting more oil into

hope this solves your problem

Motor just hums, won't turn


If you remove the cover screen and take compressed air or just a brush to clean out all dust and dirt from the motor the fan may run again
Dust is a standard contributor of these fans to quick turning

Are replacement motors available for these fans? Lakewood HV 18 Lakewood HV 21 Lakewood HV 21T


mcdevito75 here, If the fan is not too old I would figure yes, but a replacement motor will cost as a new fan, if not more, then you have to install and the blades are a presss fit to the motor.

Speed indicators light up but no fan operation 18" floor fan.


Your fan speed control module is probably shorted and is damaged. Have it repaired by an electrician.

Need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help


you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

How to remove fan cover


Hi, although mine is currently not working I was able to take the cover off by loosening the six screws that hold the front grill on - the screw heads are visible around the edge of the outer ring.

Good Luck

Keith

PS - there are then four (I think) which fasten the back grill to the motor

Lakewood 16" Pedestal Fan- Control Switch gone bad (probably)-


I have seen a number of oscillating fans where the push-pull knob just pulls off. It will require a serious pulling effort - straight up. Do Not use any tools. You may have to have a helper hold the fan while you pull the knob.

After the knob comes off, push the shaft back down with your finger to allow it to clear the housing.

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)
