Question about Fans
My black and decker tower fan will not oscillate. What can I do?
Most fan motors for fan over running have an internal overload. once it trips, it will not reset. it is a solid state device. it looks like a flat device or a small bullet device. if you've figured out how to take the fan apart, you could just remove the device and connect the two wires together and the fan will run. you won't have any protection on the motor however. the windings run warm, but if the bearings run dry the motor will slow down and the windings will get hot. this is the reason for the overlaod device - protection. its your call what you want to have.

first you have to remove the two plugs on top behind the buttons remove the two screws next you have to remove the base stand and their is one screw you have to remove then you can remove the front cover and you can get to the motor and fan.

when you take all the screws out slide the back down. there is a screw at the bottom holding it from slideing the 9th screw so to speak. you have to take out the u shaped pin on the rod once that u shaped pin is out thats where you will find all the screws to the bracket holding the moter in place take all those out too. it seems like alot but it is really not.

If the model is equipped with a fan, and the noise occurs even when not oscillating it must be a fan/blower motor. If it is a squeak. A squeal could be an electical component going bad which is always bad. I would definitely take some bottom drawer tools , ie. screwdrivers and WD-40 and oil that squeaking motor. Being a fan it goes through alot of air pollutants. That tends to build up on the shaft and can work its way into the bearing seal. Good luck.
