Three speed Duracraft Commercial Grade High Velocity Fan makes high pitch noise when first turned on. This sound usually resolves after running for about 15 seconds. Should these fans be lubricated?

SOURCE: hampton bay fan makes squeeking noise

If the fan is fairly new, remove it and return it to Home Depot. It is almost certainly something that has fallen down into the motor and is rubbing loudly enough to make a squeak as the fan runs faster.

The fan itself has sealed lubrication and you don't have to lubricate it.

the fan could have a weak coil that is ability to run fast or the capacitor is leaky, if found to be bad replace with a new one of the same rating..
Hope this will help...

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...

It may be the bearings in the motor are dry or out. You coulod pull the motor and fan assembly out and check its operation while it is out of the heater case. Look for anything inside the heater cavity where the motor sits for any problem hindering motor operation.

My toshiba mod. 52hm95 lamp cooling fan is making noise and i am having trouble locating a replacement


Fan like noise may be a fan or the color wheel---color wheel spins at high speed(lamp faces it) and when failing you will have a high pitched or fan like sound---hard failure and you will hear a grinding sound.

First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

A fan like noise is 98% of the time the color wheel.

Wheel turns at over 12,000 rpm and common failure is "fan like sound or even grinding sound".

When these sets first came out if the high pitched sound started women who have better hearing in that range usually hear it first.

If wheel really fails it will shatter and set will not come on----a grinding sound may be noticed just before total failure.
