Hi,
Check to see if the fan has a capacitor on the motor...
Often when you get a hum and no spin it is because of a bad cap.
Also check that the fan spins freely, it may need some oil...
If it does need oil, first work in some WD-40 and then some light small motor oil at each end of the motor...

My GDM-12 is not cooling. when I turn the temp up it make a loud humming sound.


If the humming last 3-5 seconds then makes a faint click sound and stops humming for a minute or two. Then resumes the hum again it may be your compressor locked down. Stuck. Most likely it is just a bad start capacitor not kick starting the compressor. A $6 part.

Hi, I had the same pop noise and turned off immediately. So my question is, where is the capacitor, in the switch assembly or inside the motor?

Hi, I have a Duracraft commercial model fan it sits on a metal stand about four ft high with a round base. The on/off switch is housed in a black box screwed to the fan base and then a wire runs up into...


A short circuit in the power wiring would probably cause the fuse or breaker controlling the circuit to open. Make sure the AC outlet you're plugged in to is actually working. If so, there's an open circuit somewhere if no power is reaching the motor.

Have you checked the switch with an ohmmeter to make sure it's really working? Check the wiring from the switch to the motor. You can also make sure the motor windings aren't open with the ohmmeter. The motor may have burned out as they sometimes do.

Check for voltage right at the motor. If this is a brush-type motor, the brushes may be worn out. It may also be that the motor is getting voltage but has a bad starting capacitor. Most commercial equipment uses capacitor-start motors, and the capacitor is usually mounted in a bracket on the motor. You can test the cap with a meter that has capacitor checking; replace the cap if it measures outside of the tolerance marked.

Our duracraft portable fan is humming and not moving? what is the problem and can it be fixed?


Sounds like the armature needs to be cleaned. Dirt can build up on the ends of the motor shaft that operates the fan and where it is held in place, the dirt can actually stop the fan. I would spray both ends of the motor shaft with WD40 and rotate the fan by hand until it is free. This is the cheapest thing to do in order to try and get the fan running again. The problem may be worse than this, but it is a good place to start.

Humidifier fan blades stopped turning


Sounds like the brush is completely gone. You might be able to replace just the brush.


Good luck.

I have the same model and I also had that problem. It turned out to be the motor. Do you hear a faint humming sound? If this is similar, you will have to take it to a designated JVC repair shop.
