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.

Greg,

FixYa does not repair or sell products. FixYa has a group of people that can help YOU fix your own products - or help you locate someone that can do it for you. In order to do that, we need brands & model numbers of the products you need help with. If you need to locate a shop that can do the work for you - then the name of your town (or closest major city) state or district and country would be needed.

Mine does the same when I try to start it on low. If I start it on hi after it gets going I then can turn it to low and works great. Hope this helps.Also you need to take it apart once a year , remove blades, take it outside and air blow the motor out .
