Aloha breeze industrial floor fan

My aloha breeze industirial floor fan is overheating at the motor part, and making a loud squealing noise sometimes-it has a 25 year warranty, and it is not even a year old yet, could this be a problem with the motor? Could there be dust in the motor? Does aloha breeze has a website? I can't find it. Any suggestions?

I assume this is the very popular 18-inch High Velocity sold at Wal-Mart. If you cannot return it to your local store contact Aloha Housewares at: 1-800-295-4448. Good Luck!

    This phone number does not work.
    I think "aloha" ran off into the island-sunset and is fanning them self with ocean breeze ( because their "breeze" fans are worthless).

Go buy a new one from walmart, clean up the old one and return it a couple days later and get your money back. Walmart sends it back to the factory as faulty merchendise. Figure if they are going to make them shoddy serves them right.

I have the same problem with mine so I tore it apart to see why. It appears that instead of using a bearing where the shaft mates to the inside of the motor they just have the shaft going into a pocket of sorts. The surface area that makes contact must have a very smooth finish. Hence a bearing...if it wears out then you just replace the bearing.I do not think it is a good way to put them together because you need grease for everything to turn smooth and there is a complete lack of grease. I am going to regrease it and see if that solves the problem for now but I will not buy another one of these fans as I can see this as being an on going problem. When the grease is gone you have metal rubbing on metal causing the motor to over work it self and the shaft or where it rests will wear out causing permanent damage. I am hoping there is no permanent damage on mine. I see some wear lines but it does not appear to be anything significant. I will let you know what the conclusion is after I get into town to buy some grease.

Very nice fan, but internal bushings move around and shaft binds on rear mounting pocket. This causes the fan shaft to bind. I found I could get less drag when the shaft was pulled out toward the front. Went got a 1/2" of pex tubing and 3 washers. Took the motor apart put a washer on the shaft where the shaft pockets into the rear motor housing and oiled. Put motor back to together. Loosened the blade hex screw and pulled the blades off. Gave the shaft a gentle tug forward, put on a washer, slipped the pex tubing (acts like giant bushing and keeps the fan shaft in a low drag posture), put the 3rd washer on, then reattach the blades. Lubed everything with 3 in 1 oil. If this thing had wings, it woud take flight.

The manual says that the motor is self contained and permanently lubricated. That's a lie. I'm on my second one. The first one gave out inside a month (overheating and squeaking then finally wouldn't run at all). I took it back and got this one. After about 6 months (this is the second season of running it) it started squeaking as well and the rpm's started dropping (I've got perfect pitch so could tell by the pitch of the motor). I said to hell with it, took the front cover in the garage and shot a couple of drops of 30-weight motor oil into the motor where the shaft comes out that the fan blades attach to (do NOT put the oil anywhere else!!! ONLY THROUGH THE MIDDLE SHAFT), made sure that it got down inside the "axle", brought it back inside and it's running like new right now.
When it starts heating up/slowing down/squeaking just oil it. I'm gonna get a can of 3-in-one oil just for this purpose. I know it's a drag, but otherwise it's a kickass fan!

I dont know if i have the same model fan but, i finally figured out this thing. play with the MODE button and you will see that it works in different ways. has a timer and swinger and remote too. Instead of blowing constantly on you, it varies it's air flow. it's cool actually.

my problem is i got it from someone without a manual and i think it my need oil or grease because it makes alot of noise sometimes.

It isn't worth fixing. I am on my second one which didn't last any longer than the first which was about 3-4 months. These fan motors are junk. First failure was a bearing and when it started failing, it was noisy. Eventually, the fan would not start because the motor didn't have enough torque to overcome the friction in the bad bearing.

The second fan was quiet but has NO starting torque....no unusual for fans generally, but I'll NEVER BUY another ALOHA BREEZE product again.

Fan making humming noise and wont turn


Hi,
The fan motor cannot turn because either the bearings are dry and turning hard or the motor has worn out...You can try to take it apart and lub the bearing with WD-40 and a light oil... it may work.

Disapointment


If it is an aloha brand fan like sold at WalMart it is a common issue. Just call their 800 number. You have to know the exact model number of have the bar code. Usually there is a bar code on top of the motor. Just take it down from the ceiling and look. I called them on Thursday and got a free switch and capacitor on Monday!! My fan is going great again.
Just call 1-800-295-4448. Even the call is free.

Squeak in aloha breeze tower fan model 05538


If the model is equipped with a fan, and the noise occurs even when not oscillating it must be a fan/blower motor. If it is a squeak. A squeal could be an electical component going bad which is always bad. I would definitely take some bottom drawer tools , ie. screwdrivers and WD-40 and oil that squeaking motor. Being a fan it goes through alot of air pollutants. That tends to build up on the shaft and can work its way into the bearing seal. Good luck.

Aloha Breeze Tower Fan Will Not Oscillate


hi,

yes this is the oscillation motor, and they generally arent servicable, and need to be replaced, you can try and oil it, sometimes they have small air vents, and you can do a voltage test with a voltmeter but I believe the motor has failed or is gummed up, you can try and take it apart, they are held together with bent metal compression areas along the circumfrence of the motor, try sewing machine oil, you might have to do some research to find a replacement motor, maybe take it to a local clock shop, those motors are very close to what they used to put in old wall clocks.

good luck
