SOURCE: I have to change the

  • green = ground (attach directly to the case, should be a green painted screw near the opening
  • red = hot 110v connect to the red on the dryer
  • black = hot 110v connect to the black on the dryer
  • white = neutral connects to the blue (only if the blue is in the middle)
  • neutral is always in the middle with a hot wire on either side of it.
  • also make sure all the connections are tight
let me know if you need more help Mike

SOURCE: Wiring the replacement 3 speed switch (fan motor)

I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:

L White
1 Yellow
2 Blue
3 Black

The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.

How do I know which wires go where on a lasko tower fan, I'm trying to use the lasko motor on a blower


You have to cut the blue wire, WAIT NO, the red wire. No the blue wire, yes cut the blue wire. Phew that was close. (How the hell is anyone going to know the answer this question? you took the think apart so you can see what the wires are for)

How do i take apart and clean my 2517 lasko t.f.


I took mine outside and hosed it down real good and then let it air dry for a day or 2. worked great! it was filthy!!! and that dang screw made it impossible for me to fully take it apart to clean it, so I decided it was either the hose or throw it away. mine was incredibly dusty and i was able to use a hose with a power nose and spray it really good. we'll see how long it works :)

Filter


If this one is like mine (and it looks just like it except my Lasko doesn't have the wood grain on the front) there is no filter inside. It is just a fan inside a plastic case.

If you want to clean it, you can try blowing it out with compressed air if you have a powerful enough compressor. If you really want to clean it, you will have to take it apart and that isn't as simple as it sounds if your unit is just like mine.

There are a bunch of screws on the back, which isn't too bad except one of them is a triangle headed "security screw" that is probably there to keep you from taking it apart. I looked at several stores and couldn't find a screwdriver to fit the stupid thing. So what I did was that I took out the rest of the screws, pried the case open as far as I could with my hands and cut the support that the last screw was attached to from inside with a strong pair of wire cutters.

I figured that when I put it back together, I wouldn't miss that one screw and I wouldn't want to deal with a triangle head screw every time I took it apart in the future anyway.

Once the case is apart, I found the best way to clean the blades is to remove the whole blade assembly and just wash the thing out in the tub and let it dry thoroughly before putting it back in. There's a metal brace (Held on by two screws) at the top the top spindle goes into and there's a single screw on the shaft of the motor that hold the bottom spindle in. It probably sounds more complicated than it is. It's pretty simple when you see it.

If you put it back together right, you almost can't do anything wrong. You might want to take a damp cloth and wipe down the interior of the case and the shrouds that surround the blades as well. If you've had it a while, they'll be dirty. You'll see/feel the dirt wherever it is. This thing is a pretty simple machine and is easy to clean once you figure it out. I put a few drops of oil on the top spindle when I put mine back together.

My lasko tower fan gets power n wont blow air


The bearings on the motor are dry and need oil. It's really not made to be oiled, but you may be able to take it apart and get some oil to the bearings if you want to mess with it.

Lasko 3723 burnt motor


sorry but you need to purchase a new fan.
some times the motor is not aline correctly and the rotor "part that spins the blade" rubs on the stator "the part with the copper wire:" the motor
over heat with the friction, then smoke followed by the coil burning.

Cleaning


Model E20739: The entire back comes off to expose the fan blades after removing two screws. Just unplug the unit. On the back of the unit near the top is a recess that acts as a carrying handle. In that area you will see two large silver-colored screws. Remove these, grasp the back of the unit and push down on it as you pull it away from the body of the fan. You may have to wiggle it around a little to free it.
