The motor needs to be dis-assembled, cleaned, and lubricated.

Do you have a fan blade replacement?


These fan blades are made of a special plastic that can not be glued. Finding a replacement blade might be not worth the trouble. Maybe it pays to just buy another fan.

Samsung srs583hdp fan in fridge has stopped working , freezer ok , any ideas , its not the fan motor


First thing I would look for is some foreign object blocking the fan blades. It could even be jammed full of pet hair. First unplug the fridge then if you can reach the fan blades with something like a soda straw of cocktail stir-stick try spinning the blades to see if they turn freely. You should be able to "flip" the blades with a soda straw and have the blades coast freely. If not, then look for an obstruction. Also, I have to ask how you know that the fan motor is OK?

When I turn on the system to start, the motor hums but nothing happens and no water comes out. We have not used it in at least a couple of months.


Hello,
One Ge dishwasher when they sit for a long time and dont get used the most tends to stick. IN most cases its pretty easy to unstick it. To do that remove the lower panel below the door and you will see the pump/motor assambly, If your dishwasher is older their will be a black fan blade between the pump and motor,turn it and you fell some resistiance at first but by turning fan blade you will fell it pop free. If their is no black fan blade the fan is in the rear of the motor(aluminum colored part) turn the fin in the rear of the motor and once again it will pop free.After freeing up if you dont use regulally just start for at least 30 seconds every week and it wont stick.

The fan wouldn't start for the condenser unless I turned the blades with a stick so I replaced the start capacitor and it still won't start without turning the blades with a stick. It runs fine but...


This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. Please see our If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor.

Extension pole sways back and forth while the fan is on


One or more blades is out of line. Get a ruler or a stick and mark the distance from the tip of one blade to the ceiling. Hold the stick in place and carefully rotate the fan until the next blade is near the stick. Do this until you have all four marks on the stick. It is important to try not to alter the position of the extension pole in between blades. Now you will find that one or more blades are at different heights. Carefully bend the worst blade until it is closer to the rest. If teh blade holders are cast, this may not be possible and you may have to pack the blade angle with washers or cardboard until they are right.

If by some chance they are all close, then it may be the "attack angle" of one blade. This is harder tot detect but sometime you can pick which balde by eye and adjust by trial and error until it is better.
Cheers,
Glenn.

I just bought the hamption bay littleton, and I know it's cheap, and it's wobbling all of the time. I have seen other littletons not wobbling on high speed. HELP!!!


wobbling means its out of balance .. make sure that all of the blades are properly seated where they bolt down .. if one is sticking up a bit then it will be out of balance .. check the the tips of every blade is the same distance from the ceiling when rotated to a fixed position .. if one is off then its mounting bracket may be bent or mounted wrong .. finally its possible that the blades simply dont weight the same .. i have a strobe light that makes it easy to see which blade is the problem .. but you can just guess by experimenting ... one way is to mark one blade so you always know where your started .. then clip on one of those spring clips normally used to hold groups of papers together ... clip it to one blade (as a weight) and see if it makes it better or worse .. rotate it around each blade until you find the best place .. then move it toward the tip or toward the motor and see if that makes it worse or better .. with a bit of work you can eventually balance the fan nicely .. they make stick on weights to do that job .. in fact there is a fan balancing kit that includes moveable weights as well as stick on weights ... if the fan is new and way out of balance then they will probably give you a new set of blades for it .. when its balanced properly then it should have very little or no wobble ..

Fan vibrates real bad. Needs a new blade. 18 inch floor fan. Blade is weak and bends easily.


Stick a small weight to the end of one of the fan blades with some sellotape , run the fan , if the noise gets worse transfer the weight to another blade.
When the fan is running quietly go to the blade opposite to the one with the weight on and drill out a 10mm hole in the material.

Take the weight off and check for balance if it is still out drill another smaller hole in the blade till you get a balance

Drill the holes a the tip of the blade so that you get the best effect from the removal of material

This will save you buying a new blade

Ceiling fan wobbling


put a piece of masking tape on each blade and number them.while you're up there check that mounting screws are tight.switch position of blades,i.e. move #1to #3,see if it's better or worse;switch #2 & #4 or#4 &#6 etc. until you find the combination giving you the best 'balance'

Blades vibrating


The fan blades have to be balanced for it to run smoothly.
This website looks like it's straight from 1995, but the instructions are good and you should be able to rebalance your fan without too much trouble.
