It's possibly a lubrication problem. I can't seem to keep mine lubricated, so good luck with yours.

What wrong my wind machine stop working and had funny smell?


Well,,, if it had a funny smell,,, along with not working anymore, than either a wire burned up or the motor fried. I'd bet on a wire though. If its multi speed, than a capacitor may have fried too but they don't ordinarily smell unless they burn. For the price of a new one,, just go out and buy one instead of wasting money on a repair unless you know someone who can fix a small problem.

Old emerson electric window fan, does it need oil or to be oiled, my dad has had for many years, I've been noticing a burning smell when fan runs for a long period of time


  • First think I think when I hear of a burning smell is have you cleaned out the motor housing real well lately. Lots of fuzz, dust, etc can build up in there and make that motor really work hard and start to make it want to overheat or over heat. Unplug the fan and take a tooth pic and get in the motor assembly and pull the lint etc out of there with it. Some canned air may help a bit to once things are loosened up.
  • As for lubricating the fan you won't oil it. The motor spins the fan so there is nothing to lubricate. When the motor goes the the fan stops so the best thing you can do is strip that fan the best you can and wash and dry the parts real good and clean the motor housing out real well to let that motor breath as much as possible.
  • When a fan motor gets old and is worked real hard it can get hot by default and things will smell hot. If the fan has already been cleaned real well the best thing you can do is give it a break more frequently or look into a replacement motor.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Burning smell when lights are on


If the smell is gone 24 hours after the lights were turned off, turn on the fan & leave the lights off. Check for the burning order again. If you can smell it replace the fan. It will be the armature shorting out in the fans motor

Burning smell from motor when I plug cord in outlet. Also, blades do not turn.


if the smell is foul smelling the windings in the armature of the motor are shorted out against the metal housing of this armature. You need a new motor or replace the fan

Hello :

You should sniff the motor first . If there's a bad smell , then the motor is burned . You
If you can fix it by yourself , then dissemble the unit, remove the motor. Loosen the bolts running from end to end of the motor and with emery cloth, clean the small metal plates on the ehd of the armature. They should be bright copper color. If the armature is burnt, they will be dull brown. The other thing is to replace the brushes in the motor . Or take it to a repair shop if you are not sure that you can fix it by yourself .

good luck .

please rate !

How to Repair Ceiling Fan that only works on low speed and smells like its burning, the light works fine


Check the motor is not seized up.
If the motor turns freely by hand, but still smells hot and wont run at speed it will have to be replaced.
(The motor drive inductor winding is most likely to be faulty - uneconomic to repair)

I Have a hampton bay ceiling fan mod. 523 342,


if you have connected power directly to the fan motor and it doesn't turn...replace the fan.  However, also check the switches on the fan as you may have bumped them.
