Vintage Oscillating Electric Table Fan ~ Repair & Service

Where can I find info on how to take apart and repair an old electric fan?  I need to re-wire this metal table fan.  I've got is dissembled - as far as I can go, without worrying about doing something I shouldn't. [Have got the wire cage off and the oscillating control off.] What I really need is a repair guide/manual on how to get into the motor housing, and what to do once I'm there.  I'd also like to know if the blades can be removed from the motor housing, such that they can be separately cleaned/painted.  I've got an old Spartan, probably from the 1920s [?].  Is there a website that addresses this issue?  A website that offers old manuals?  Help...?

Casablanca Table Fan, DOA

If your Casablanca Fan (1928D) Table Fan has stopped working completely, or stopped in the middle of oscillating, it might be the internal AC wire that runs up the middle of the fan base, that is broken internally. First, make sure the fan is not plugged in. You have to take the whole fan apart from the front. Check for continuity on the white and black wires that run to the motor. You may have to pierce the black and white wires with a pin to check them, because they are wired directly into the motor. These two wires have a black jacket covering them that can be pulled off if you find an open wire. Either one of these wires can break internally because of the back and forth movement. Cut the wires close as necessary to the motor to make the splice. Solder and use heat shrink insulation and route the new wire back down through the base and splice them where the original wires were. I used a piece of electrical cord with white and black conductors that was cut off an appliance that was dead. It was the same size as the original so it fit well. Please note, this repair requires electrical and mechanical knowledge. You have to take the whole fan apart to do this repair.

    Light in ceiling fan burned out even after i changed bulb

    probably burnt the electric feed wire off the light bulb socket. you will have 2 find the circuit breaker to the fan/light and turn the breaker off & then take the light section of the ceiling fan apart & look at the socket for a burnt off wire. you will need diagonal cutters to cut off the wire section with burnt insulation and wire strippers to stripe off the insulation, about 3/4 of an inch. you might be able to reconnect the wire to the light bulb socket if the socket has screw terminals but some sockets have solder terminals and require you to be able to solder the wire back on with an electric soldering gun, which cost between $12.00 to $ 30.00 you could see the cost of the tools at
    also need solder and soldering flux at radio shack,home depot or
    If you need to add an extra length of wire you can connect it with wire nus from home depot.
    home depot sells books on lamp repair and on electrical repair or borrow the book from the .com may even have used books on lamp repair and home electric repair for sale at 1/2 price or less.

    Vintage emerson electric table fan started making high pitched noise and now the blades will not turn. Even off I can't get them to rotate freely. It has never been serviced or oiled.

    The motors on ALL fans have a shaft going thru the motor which turns as a result of the pulsation of AC current.

    The shaft is maintained in the center of the motor but alas parts wear out. Metal on metal (the squeaking sound) indicates the parts are wearing.
    The stopping (seizing) of the fan blades indicates that any movement of the shaft is no longer possible due to friction.

    As repair, a technician could keep the casing and install a new motor.

    good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

    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.
