Question about Tower Aloha Breeze Fan

1 Answer

Aloha Breeze 16" Vintage Stand Fan Model #46051 (46052) Serial #03156: Trying to open up the case to get to the motor, to try and replace a fuse or something that's making the fan not work. I got the bottom part off, the only thing I can't figure out how to take off is the Oscillator button on the top. How do I take that off?

It isn't worth fixing. I am on my second one which didn't last any longer than the first which was about 3-4 months. These fan motors are junk. First failure was a bearing and when it started failing, it was noisy. Eventually, the fan would not start because the motor didn't have enough torque to overcome the friction in the bad bearing.

The second fan was quiet but has NO starting torque....no unusual for fans generally, but I'll NEVER BUY another ALOHA BREEZE product again.

    I had the same problem I was able to pull the oscillator button off, took the motor apart and re grease the
    Back bearing. I also found that the field coil was open (infinite resistance) there was no fuse.
    I am setting it out with the trash, It is not repairable unless you want to re wind the field coil.
    There was continuity between the low, medium and high speed wires coming from the motor.
    There was no continuity betweenThe return wire to any other wire coming out of the motor.
    Hopefully posting my trouble shooting Results will salvage something from a other wise wasted evening.
    I hopes that this helps. -- Retired 69 in TN

    there is a 130 degree celsius thermal fuse tucked away in the rear windings. Look for a visible small rectangular solid white plastic fuse body on a pair of 2" long leads that are buried under the power wires attached to the windings by a huge amount of varnish or whatever, and, using appropriate stress relief, carefully carefully cut the threads and carefully surgically, excavate one wire at a time thru to the two fuse leads. Squeeze the insulated sleeves and slide them off, unsolder the two leads from their connection. One has a fine winding wire attached, be careful not to break it. If you made it this far you can probably put it back together with a new thermal fuse. They are available on ebay from hong kong and it will take several weeks to get by that route. You can probably find something close at Radio Shack. I wouln't put one in with a higher temp limit. Thie insulation on the winding wires could melt before the fuse blows. Also, be sure to use a heat sink to dissapaste the heat when you solder the THERMAL fuse in. Best of Luck to you,

first check AC power cord for cutoff wire inside. if its ok, carefully remove back motor cover and find FUSIBLE RESISTOR, its covered by insulator, replace it or connect two legs together or jumper-ed with wire, covered it with insulator like wire tape for short circuit purpose, then try it.

You are still in the warrranty period of one year and it is most adviceable not to tamper it so as to lose the priviledge.
So please get in touch immediatley with your dealer.
Only If there is no help do you need to open the base and check the leads from plug to the motor for continuity. if voltage is present then motor may be faulty.
