Question about Tower Aloha Breeze Fan

Aloha Breeze Tower Fan Will Not Oscillate

My Aloha Breeze tower fan no longer oscillates. Works great otherwise. I took it apart to look for mechanical problems but noticed that there is a small round gold electrical part that looks like it makes it oscillate. Maybe that is not getting electricity when I push the oscillating button. Any thoughts?

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

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The fan should just be a slide on the motor shaft snug fit with a metal clamp. The Blower wheel (fan) when they fail usually crack the center hub and no longer fit will on the motor shaft sungly so it contacts the blower housing as it rotates. That is why you hear all the noise. If the blower wheel / impeller as you referred to it does not fit tightly on the motor chaft then you will have to replace it. It should rotate in a true non-oscillation pattern like a circular saw blade. Any side to side movement during rotation is cause for replacement.

"does the neutral hook up to the element?"

Yes - the element requires a neutral (white wire) connection and is generally wired in parallel with the fan.

Kitchen aid dry motor noise


Try taking it apart again and try to turn the motor by hand. It should spin freely. If it does you've probably got a bad motor. If it is stiff or doesn't turn at all, then you might have missed something putting it back together. I wouldn't think you can overtighten the blower, it is probably something else, and with it apart it should be easy to see.
