    Fan stopped working on all speeds. Motor simply hums and will not start blade turning. However, if fan is set on "high" and I give the blades a spin, they seem to get some assistance and keep moving for a long while.

    What do I need to do to fix?

    - thanx

The problem is NOT the motor. This is the most stereotypical, quintessential, textbook case of capacitor failure. The capacitor is a small rectangular black box located in the fan's switch housing (there may be one, two, or three capacitors) with colored wires coming out. The capacitor regulates voltages, and gives the fan enough torque to start, then keep running at the appropriate speed.

Capacitors are inexpensive to replace. Some replacements are available at your local Home Depot or Lowes; if they don't have the right one, go to Radio Shack. IT IS IMPERATIVE that the replacement capacitor you buy has the EXACT same values -- same voltage, and same microfarad rating (written as a number followed by the letters MFD, or the micro-sign and the letter F: µF). So, for example, it might say "277v 2.5µF" or "277v 2.5 MFD" -- and the replacement capacitor must have the exact same values. It must also have the same number of wires coming out of the top. However many capacitors your fan has, that is the number you need to replace, since you don't know which one is blown.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

What do you expect to get from a store brand fan? They're cheaper because they use lower end parts. Always look for a fan with at least a 13 degree blade pitch for better air movement.

My Hawaiian breeze floor fan just stopped working for no reason? Any solutions

One of the most common problems is the switch, bad ac cord, an open winding in the fan motor. The on/off switch and ac cord should be checked first, now! if the motor is humming but not working it is seized, the bearing is burnt, or scorched, and possibly cracked.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working

It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

Lasko fan

I can tell you how to take the fan blades off your Lasko Model 3723 fan, but you might not be able to use it on your other fan. The reason why is that the motors, although similar, may not have the same diameter shaft.

Of course, you should have the power cord unplugged from the AC outlet before removing the front fan grille and placing your hands on the blades. Safety first!

The fan blades and hub are a single unit that stretches to fit onto the motor shaft. There is no setscrew at all. Take any sort of metal bar or tool such as a screwdriver or pry bar and carefully lever the hub off the shaft by pressing your lever to lift the hub a small fraction of an inch on each side, working the hub slowly upwards against the long vertical bars that support the motor. If you have reasonably strong hands, you may be able to pull the hub toward you by placing your fingertips under the edge of the hub and pressing with your thumbs against the vertical support bars as needed. It's not too difficult to do.

Good luck!

Breeze ceiling fan not working

We were able to get 3 fans running again by replacing the capacitor which had melted in all 3 fans. On one of the fan's the casing around the motor was extremely hot, which prompted us to act quickly. I suppose the fan had been trying to start itself. We purchased the capacitors at an electrical supplier at a cost of $15 each. We were not able to locate the type of capacitors which came with the fan. I am now looking for replacement capacitors at a lower cost if possible. Does anyoe have suggestions of a reputable online dealer for capacitors at a reasonable cost? I would like to keep some on hand.
