Question about Black & Decker BDTF1010B Tower Fan

How do you open up a BDTF101B Tower Fan?

Our tower fan stops oscillating when it hits a certain spot, usually the end of the first cycle. I'm trying to open it up but haven't had any success. Please help!! Thanks

    We tried to clean the fan and most of the edge seam will separate; however, it seems that the casing will not entirely come apart.  Please help!

    Mine stopped oscillating soon after I bought it over two years ago, and I've never been able to clean it. It is a POS. I just bought a better fan from costco.

First you have to remove the two plugs on top behind the buttons remove the two screws next you have to remove the base stand and their is one screw you have to remove then you can remove the front cover and you can get to the motor and fan.

    I took apart a Pelonis blower fan with the same oscillating issue. It also has the TYJ50-8B1 Synchronous Motor. If you pry apart the oscillating motor, you will find a plastic gear with broken teeth. I replaced my plastic gear with a metal one, It has work flawlessly since. The plastic gear isn't designed to handle the stress of moving all that weight back and forth for very long.

Squeak in aloha breeze tower fan model 05538


If the model is equipped with a fan, and the noise occurs even when not oscillating it must be a fan/blower motor. If it is a squeak. A squeal could be an electical component going bad which is always bad. I would definitely take some bottom drawer tools , ie. screwdrivers and WD-40 and oil that squeaking motor. Being a fan it goes through alot of air pollutants. That tends to build up on the shaft and can work its way into the bearing seal. Good luck.

Aloha Breeze Tower Fan Will Not Oscillate


hi,

yes this is the oscillation motor, and they generally arent servicable, and need to be replaced, you can try and oil it, sometimes they have small air vents, and you can do a voltage test with a voltmeter but I believe the motor has failed or is gummed up, you can try and take it apart, they are held together with bent metal compression areas along the circumfrence of the motor, try sewing machine oil, you might have to do some research to find a replacement motor, maybe take it to a local clock shop, those motors are very close to what they used to put in old wall clocks.

good luck
