    the lights comes on and the tower rotates, but the fan does not work.

    Same problem as above. I totally disassembled this fan, testing various connections and componants. I found the motor was bad. The leads from the power to the field windings of the motor are the thickness of a few hairs! If one breaks or tears, it's over.

    It is more than likely the thermal fuse between the red and white wire within the motor housing. The motor itself seems to be of decent quality.

I just replaced the thermal fuse in the motor case. You can find replacements at Radio Shack. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12505747&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PPC&utm_term=55048814&utm_content=Exact&utm_campaign=PLA&%7bifmobile:ds_dest_url=http%3A%2F%2Fm.radioshack.com%2Fradioshack%2Fproduct%2Fdetail.do%3FitemId%3d12505747%26utm_source%3dGoogle%26utm_medium%3dPPC%26utm_term%3d55048814%26utm_content%3dExact%26utm_campaign%3dPLA%7d&cagpspn=pla&gclid=CIjo_4_ylrkCFUcGKgodMG0AAA&gclsrc=ds.ds
You will need to open the motor case and carefully cut the heat shrink tube off where the red wire connects to the white wire. I do mean carefully, as you don't want to cut the tiny coil wire soldered to the white wire and the thermal fuse. Cut the old one out, leaving some of the old lead to solder the new one too. Be sure to add new heat shrink tube before soldering the new one in so you can get it all back properly. This certainly took some time and patiance but was better than throwing it out and spending another 60 to 70 bucks.

Replace motor. Probably cheaper and less hassle to buy another fan, unless you are about principles and demand the company replace their subpar motor of an otherwise exceptional fan.

Osilating stopped on lasko 2554 fan


Lasko's are good for stripping the gear in the base that makes it oscillate. If it's still under warranty, they will send you a new fan.

My Lasko 2517 tower fan won't turn on. Have tried


Here is my problem. MY Lasko 4820 Model, is having issues with starting up. Example I turned it on and the rotation stand that moves the tower works. But the fan motor or something realetted is not moving. The fan itself won't move on setting 3, 2, or 1. I don't use the ionizer (I have a smoke detector that picks ionized things and smoke) in my room. I've looked at similar issues or the same and a is different in some way or issue. I've never taken it apart, and one more thing I don't have any solutions because I bought it atva Thrift Store for $29.99 and dident know if someone broke it possibly in the past. No remote either. It has 5 buttons. Middle: Power. Top right: Ion. Botten right: Fan speed/setting (3, 2, 1) Top left: Timer (1hr, 2 hr, 4 hr.) Bottem left: Rotation for whole tower. Please Post anything that may help. Please do NOT respond with "Thats you're fault for buying it at a cheap junk sore" and something related to Criticizing me for getting it at a place that has used items. I know that, just give anything that Will help this issue.

My lasko mod 2554 fan powers up but the fan will not work. The fan oscilates and the ionizer and timer lights all work.


It is possible that the main capacitor is faulty and so the coils is not enerrgised to start.
So check winding and check the capacitor for open.
Test capacitor by charging both the pins to mains voltage and shorting the pins to see if charge is retained.If retained the capacitor is good, if not replace.

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.

I have a Lasko HVB, but this might apply to your fan:

Without taking the thing totally apart, here's an idea you can try: The power cord on some models (like mine) has a "warning" tag. I had the damn thing all apart when I noticed this. (Well, who reads 'em??) Seems like there's a mini-fuse in the PLUG itself that, when it blows, there's nothing you can do about it except send it for repair to a factory authorized yadda yadda yadda. Who's going to do that??

If you plug in and NOTHING HAPPENS, here's what might turn out to be an cheap and easy fix: cut off a few inches of the plug end of the cord and go buy another plug at Ace. Heavy duty might be appropriate: don't think I'd want a lamp plug on this baby. Get one that's easy to install. Bring the cut off piece and they'll help you find exactly what you want.

If you want to open it up, there's a screw behind the Lasko medallion, remove that and you can snap out the grille. You can see where the cord comes in from the back of the blower housing. Test the line voltage. If you're not getting about 120VAC, it's the plug.

If that's not it, IMHO, without some knowledge or a schematic, you're screwed. That'd be me. It wasn't the plug.

Good luck!
