The speed control switch which is what the cord is attached to has gone bad. You can get these from for the dayton line of fans.

Hope this helps

    There may be a cam type wheel or a sprocket that oscillates your fan. It would appear that this has either been moved out of position or may have even became broke the only way to tell would be to take apart the fan casing and inspect it. Before you do this I would visit the dayton site and look for an exploded diagram so you have some type of map to follow.

    I have a Holmes HAS1650 stand up fan and I need to know how to get it to quit rotating.

    Not sure what you mean by "stop rotating"

    I assume you mean to stop oscillating. There should be a knob on top of the motor housing that you push down to oscillate and pull up to stop oscillating.

    If you mean to stop the blades from spinning there should be a fan speed control knob on the top of the motor housing that you turn to "O" to stop the fan.

    Here is an instruction manual for a similar fan...

    Just trying to take the plastic covering off of the motor without breaking the plastic controls off

    The speed control knob will pry off with a thin screwdriver. Once you have removed it, you will see that the knob for the oscillating feature is split where it slides over its shaft. I took a jeweler's screwdriver and separated the halves slightly and the knob pulled free. It's made that way so it doesn't pull off when you go to turn on/off the oscillation. If you're going to oil the rear of the motor, be really careful when you remove the rear housing and separate the motor sections. The winding wires are tiny andfragile. Only take it apart as far as necessary and be careful reassembling the unit. Hope this helps...!

    Oscillating table fan makes banging noise when rotating

    mcdevito75 here, Sounds like that oscillating swtich is either a little loose or could use a drop or 2 of 3 in 1 oil. Try to twist offf the oscillating swatch button and see if you can tighten it or put a drop of oil on it.
