The motors on ALL fans have a shaft going thru the motor which turns as a result of the pulsation of AC current.

The shaft is maintained in the center of the motor but alas parts wear out. Metal on metal (the squeaking sound) indicates the parts are wearing.
The stopping (seizing) of the fan blades indicates that any movement of the shaft is no longer possible due to friction.

As repair, a technician could keep the casing and install a new motor.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Why doesn't my fan rotate anymore?


definitely sounds mechanical. try prying open the motor area and see if anything happens when you turn it on. i'm guessing it might be a short somewhere that's making the other parts have to compensate

also check into servos, relays, and whatnot

Maybe the blades are hitting somewhere when it is rotating, otherwise, it could be bad bearings. Is it a store brand (Hampton Bay,Harbor Breeze or hunter fan sold in box stores)?

This fan isn't even worth fixing! When you're buying a fan,look for blade pitch or CFM's. Don't buy anything under a 12 degree blade pitch. 14 degree pitch would be better. Remember, you get what you pay for!

something is jamming the heads from turning. the high pitched sound is the motor trying to turn but cant. if you are certain tht ll 3 blades turn freely inside their combs, the problem must be with he retainer that holds the blades into th frame. there are metal pieces on there that can get bent and interfere with the blades. If your retainer is damaged, you can get a new one at shaveroutlet.com

High Pitched noise


I had a high pitch noise, didn't sound like it came from the "underside". Turns out it was one of fans that had little chips in the blades? My Audi dealer replaced it, and it's fine now.

TV making high pitch sound


Hi, There are usually 1 or 2 fans inside the TV's. Could be worn bearings, or fan blade interference. Sorry, without my electric ear working, I can only guess.

Turn of the circuit breaker before doing this or plug out the power cord..
- check if the fan motor is not stuck up by touching the fan blade by your finger if it rotate freely. If stuck up full out the fan motor and put a little oil and rotate it manually until it turns freely.
- Check and rotate the fan blade manually and be sure that it is not mis align and not touching the fan blade frame.
- Check for loose bolts and screws that cause the fan motor vibration.
- Check for foreign object that obstructing the rotation of the fan motor.
- Check for defective bearing or bushing.
