Question about Lasko 1820 Stand (Pedestal) Fan

1 Answer

The fan blades are hitting the back of the cage

Last night, the fan began to hit the back of the cage. I attempted to fix the problem, but I am unsure as to why it is happening. I cleaned the fan blade, thinking it might be off balance and re-tightened it on the flywheel. It was silent for about five minutes and began to hit the rear cage again.

Hi,
Just a suggestion. Make sure the back part of the cage is securely fastened to the motor housing. Good Luck,

Hi,
Those squirrel cage fans have a habit of coming apart, or getting dirt in them and going out of balance...then they wobble and hit the sides of the fan housing...
Make sure the fan is clean and also move it around a bit to make sure it is not coming apart....
Often the only way to fix them is too replace the sqirrel cage part...

My computer when turned on is making a big rattling sound. What is wrong with the computer and how can I fix it?


Sounds like something is loose and is hitting the fan blades.
Remove the cover and check the cables near the fan, tie the cables back and make sure they don't hit the fan blades.

Grinding of fan


Hi,
There should be a black round nut in front of the blades in the very center. It will have ribs on it so you can grab it. Turn it Counter clockwise, and it should unscrew.
Then you can remove the blade assembly and get to the back cage to tighen the screws.
This should take care of the problem.
Re assemble in reverse order.
Let me know if you have any more questions or if this doesnt work.
Good luck.

Laser 72 exhaust blower noise


the combustion blower sucks in clean air so it has no place in the exhaust stream. hence no carbon build up. the blades of it look like a vacuum disk on a vacuum cleaner. if the fan was recently rebuilt, make sure of the placement of the bushings. if one is misplaced the fan will rub on its housing and make all kinds of racket.

huthy, the fact that it's lasting 15 to 20 seconds leads me to believe that it could be one of the fan blades hitting. The valve springs on the compresser would make more of a clunk-clunk noise and wouldn't last that long. The evaporator fan in the freezer compartment has a grille that will snap on and off, clip on the bottom and tabs on the side. See if you can remove the grill and check to see if there is any ice build up around the evap. fan. The other fan, condensor is in back by the compressor, it could be hitting on the shroud upon start up or shut down. Check these things first and post back...Catriver
