Try replacing the "start-run" capacitor. It is the rectangular black box mounted on a tab next to the motor inside the cage, two wires attached (cut them close as close to the capacitor body as possible). Other symptoms include not moving at all with a hum, and getting very hot. The capacitor is a 5% tolerance 8 microfarad rated at 250vac. It doesn't have to be the exact form factor but it does have to be heat rated at or above 70C per design parameters of the fan.

WARNING! Make sure to protect the leads properly because this capacitor is connected directly to the power mains during operation. If one of the leads electrically shorted against the fan housing or cage could cause a catastrophic failure of the fan, and possibly a fire, and possibly give a nasty shock to whoever was switching on the fan at the time.

Do you bypass the run capacitator on a lakewood model hv-18 fan with a 2.4 motor


More than likely it's not the start capacitor why your fan will not run this more than likely it's not the start capacitor why your fan will not run this lubrication try turning the fan motor by hand if it does not turn freely it's lubrication I have answered this another post.

more than likely it is lubrication spray WD-40 into the oil holes after you have unplugged the fan of course Keep turning the fan and you'll notice will start turning more freely apply more oil to the rear of the motor as this is an oil bushing you're putting more oil into

hope this solves your problem

Are replacement motors available for these fans? Lakewood HV 18 Lakewood HV 21 Lakewood HV 21T


mcdevito75 here, If the fan is not too old I would figure yes, but a replacement motor will cost as a new fan, if not more, then you have to install and the blades are a presss fit to the motor.

My lakewood HV18 just stopped. Spinning the shaft


I think you need to buy a new fan. Unless this thing cost several hundred dollars it isn't worth rewinding and a capacitor isn't likely to cause it to stop working, the cap is for STARTING it spinning anyway and sometimes they are used to HELP it run better, but it will try to run if you spin it and since your's does nothing, more than likely the windings are gone.

Speed indicators light up but no fan operation 18" floor fan.


Your fan speed control module is probably shorted and is damaged. Have it repaired by an electrician.

Need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help


you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.
