Sorry to say this, but if you smell electrical smoke, the fan motor is either dead or soon will be. I recently had one like this, and I immediately replaced the whole fan. It's much cheaper than my fire insurance deductible!

I've heard similar refrigerator noises like yours before. Sounds like the evaporator fan motor, located in the freezer and runs only when the door is closed, is being obstructed, possibly by ice, possibly by some wiring or even a food item. You could have a defrost problem, but you dont mention any refrigerator or freezer temperature problem, so that is likely not it. It is also possible the evaporator fan motor itself is out of balance. If you remove the back wall of the freezer, you will be able to see if there is something obstructing the fan blade, if the motor or shaft is out of balance, when you close the door light switch, check the balance of the shaft, it should not have any wobble at all, in fact, if the fan blade is not attached, you should not be able to tell by looking at the motor shaft if the motor is running or not. Also, just happened to think, if one of the fan blades is even partially broken off, that will cause the motor to be out of balance. But if one of these blades is broken, it was broken by something else, either ice or something, and you may have to find the cause of that, otherwise it may happen again.

Vintage emerson electric table fan started making high pitched noise and now the blades will not turn. Even off I can't get them to rotate freely. It has never been serviced or oiled.


The motors on ALL fans have a shaft going thru the motor which turns as a result of the pulsation of AC current.

The shaft is maintained in the center of the motor but alas parts wear out. Metal on metal (the squeaking sound) indicates the parts are wearing.
The stopping (seizing) of the fan blades indicates that any movement of the shaft is no longer possible due to friction.

As repair, a technician could keep the casing and install a new motor.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Hunter fan model 25706 both the lights & fan have stopped working


mcdevito75 here, VeryGood question, very good, here we go, ------ First a re-set for the motor, I really don"t know but if there is it"s on the motor itself, you"d have to un-screw the cover just at the ceiling and let this cover slide down the chain Attached from the ceiling to the fan itself. and check the motor itself for a reset swtch, usually a red bitton. Now!! true, if the fan motor is bad it could affect the lights, here"s how, the wall switch supplies electricity to the fan motor and the pull chain on the motor turns the fan on, from the motor itself to the fan lights another wire also from the fan motor goes to the fan lights, SO!! if the fan motor is no good it won"t allow electricity to go on to the fan lights. Maybe you Fan motor is just stuck, specially if you haven"t used it in a whlie, with the wall swiotch on and fan speed on low try to gently move the fan blades them selves. If not you may have to repalace the fan.

Fan blade is not rotating but there is noise


The rotor is stuck and the fan blade will not rotate then a humming noise can be heard. It is due to a bushing problem. It may be stuck due to a hardened accumulated dirt.
  1. Remove the fan blade guard.
  2. Remove the fan blade.
  3. Remove the 4 screws holding the stator assembly.
  4. Pull out the front plate of the motor and the rotor.
  5. Clean the bushing and the rotor.
  6. Lubricate the busing and rotor assembly.
  7. Reassemble in reverse order.

My refrigerator has a burnt wire smell. The fans are running but the freezer doesn't seem as cold as it should be.


I'm guessing the condensor fan motor is not running. they smell like an electrical odor when they stop..remove back cover and see if something has gone into the blade area and stopped the motor from turning. if so, remove it ..if not, spin the blade and see if motor starts..if so, order new motor..you can use a floor fan to blow air towards compressor until you get a motor

Fan whining and blades not going


Sounds like your compressor outside is frozen up or (locked up) the smell is outside correct? it could also be your fan also in your condensor unit outside the easiest way is to listen for fluid movement (if your freon is moving then your compressor is working and you need to lean toward a fan motor. check to see if you can move the fan blades in the compressor (outside ) if the problem is in the house then approach in the same way with the power to the unit turned off only If you cannot turn it most likely fan motor replacement is in order, and pressure sensors are not letting your condensor run. theres a few things to try hope i have helped .Honestly it probably would not hurt to let a service man look at it anyway, but this way at least you're a little wiser chris
