Need help troublshooting floor fan problem

I have a lakewood floor fan, it use to work normal then I would have to give it a minute to warm up before the blades will spin, now its to the point that it doesn;t even do that.I took a look at it and it seems like there's some type of transformer or converter box attached to it but it don't know whether or not to replace it. what shall I do?

    I have floor fan w same problem.



    I thought it was the thermostat defective.



    I have not used fan enough to think that brushes would be worn out.



    Ssurely a sharp fan repair shop should have a generic replacement brush.



    Very good fan while it was working.

This problem is caused by worn brushes, these are probably not replacable. You could replace the motor but you will have more money tied up in that then replacing the fan.

Can I order new "feet" for Lakewood box fans


I searched for your solution. This is the closest I can find. This is customer service for Lakewood.

Another solution if the above does not work. You could make a couple of feet from some wood as well.

Are replacement motors available for these fans? Lakewood HV 18 Lakewood HV 21 Lakewood HV 21T


mcdevito75 here, If the fan is not too old I would figure yes, but a replacement motor will cost as a new fan, if not more, then you have to install and the blades are a presss fit to the motor.

Need help with fixing my lakewood floor fan.


try cleaning it and put oil especially at the base of the shaft.then try wiggling the shaft for bushing tolerance.if you feel the shaft wiggles to wide, then you'll need to replace the bushing and the shaft.but before anything else check the thermal fuse.it is found on the motor itself or try to borrow a tester with resistance measurement to check for continuity of the winding by connecting the probes with the plug, one each terminal.then turn the fan on.the pointer should move if its ok, unless burn out.if not.then the thermal fuse blow-out.

Cleaned a fan, now it's broken!!!


Is this the speed switch itself? These multi-speed fans have 4 or 5 wires which come from the motor which go into the speed select switch. The wiring may have the ends stripped, and this stripped end just pushes into the hole on the switch, and a little metal piece grips that stripped end.

Anyway, one possibility is to contact the manufacturer- look on their website or give them a call, see if a tech can give that info. Another poss. is to locate an identical fan and note the wiring locations on it. You can also experiment trial and error, though caution needs to be exercised here.
