Question about Lakewood 16" Stand Fan

Lakewood 16" Pedestal Fan- Control Switch gone bad (probably)-

Similiar problem on my 16" Lakewood Pedestal Fan, Model 1645-DX.
The control switch has probably gone bad, but it is not so straightforward as to getting the plastic motor cover removed to expose the switch. One Philips head screw loosens the plastic cover, but the cover remains "captured" by the "Push-pull Knob" which engages the oscillator gear (box) attached to the end of the motor (shaft). The Push-pull Knob does not seem to detach by "unscrewing." It can be rotated freely, which doesn't remove it. As these components are molded plastic, but are not "fiberglass" strengthened, I'm hesitant to apply much force on the mechanism.

Presently with this Fan (to repair), I'm "stimied," and will appreciate any help you can give. Jim W.

I have seen a number of oscillating fans where the push-pull knob just pulls off. It will require a serious pulling effort - straight up. Do Not use any tools. You may have to have a helper hold the fan while you pull the knob.

After the knob comes off, push the shaft back down with your finger to allow it to clear the housing.

Hunter fan model 21617 remote fan won't turn on light from wall switch


You mean only the light? and the fan is working? Have you checked the light bulb? If it's ok, then checked on the wall switch. If is also ok, then probably there's is something wrong with the wiring in the fan.. It's either a bad or loose connection

My Lasko Pedestal fan just stopped working completely


Its probably something simple, plug it into another outlet and make sure that outlet work also, if that dont work it will be in the control switch and i doubt the motor is burnt up. You can take srew driver and open up the control cover to see if there a fuse and check the wiring connection from the outlet to the control switch and make sure the fan is unplug before you open up the cover. Jiggle the wire inside the control unit than press and play with the button couple of time and plug it back into the outlet and see that will work. if not than have somone test the the motor with a volt meter making sure the motor still good. I believe it be more likely in the control swith unit. hope that work for ya

Need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help


you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

To repair 18" lakewood stand fan mod.#HV-18-p


unplug the fan!
1 remove the six screws that hold the front grille on.
2 use an allen wrench to loosen the screw that secures the fan blade assembly to the motor shaft. (screw is between the blades and the motor and it is on tight, make sure that you do not bend the fan blades, this would cause balance problems)
3 remove blade
4 you will now have access to the screws that hold the motor cover in place.
5. when reassembling make sure that the strain relief (or knot in the cord on some models) is inside the motor cover, and that wires are not being pinched.
6. Good luck

Window Fan switch bad


Steve, Your fan model is HV-18-WR; I have 2 with the same problem. I can't find a source for DYE-3606 switches either. Here is one source for rotary switches; one might be suitable: http://www.alliedelec.com/Catalog/Indices/Products.asp?sid=46BBAA8076DBE17F&N=4294828748 I can draw a diagram of how the existing switch is connected, but I don't know how that would translate to a replacement switch.
