We just experienced the same problem with the buttons! I just kept pushing all the buttons until it switched over-delicate cycle was actually the one that got it going-what a piece of work this machine is!

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!

SOURCE: 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 18" cyclone 1843 quit working is there a fuse


  • Lasko Cyclone fans have a thermal fuse (typically 130 degrees C) placed on the armature of the motor, connected between the input voltage line and the start capacitor. It is not user replaceable, since it is soldered, taped and attached to the armature with cable ties. When the motor overheats, the thermal fuse blows, primarily protecting against a fire hazard. Like most low cost Chinese manufactured fans, the motor uses low quality sintered bronze bushings instead of ball bearings to save a few pennies in cost. The bushing (each motor has 2) is surrounded by padding which is infused with lubricant, and the lubricant seeps through the bushing to lubricate the rotor shaft of the motor when it is operating. Unfortunately over time, the lubricant dries out or the bushings clog, causing the rotor friction to increase, resulting in the motor current increasing as it tries to maintain motor speed. This heats up the armature coils, causing the thermal fuse to eventually blow. While the thermal fuse can be replaced with some effort and the padding re-lubricated, eventually the same thing will happen because of the low quality bushings.

I tried to turn on my air coditioning today for the first time this year and my Totaline Themostat P474-1050 won't turn on. Worked fine during the winter and last summer.


the thermostat is powered by the unit or batteries if batteries they may be dead if the unit you need to check fuses outside at unit or reset breaker outside depending on age of installation

2003 ford taurus heater fan worked fine last night but won't come on at all today.


I do not understand why people will continue to operate a vehicle when they know there is an obvious problem. They ignore check engine lights until the engine stops running altogether and then are "surprised" when they get stranded in the middle of the expressway in rush hour traffic. Then they blame it on the car!!!

In your case, you have ignored the warning signs of your blower motor failing ("making noise for a couple months"?) and now you are dumfounded as to why your blower motor now does not work at all.....I don't get it....!???

All fans have a thermal fuse built into the motor. If the fan was running slow from dry bearings the motor will overheat and pop the fuse. Just about 100% of fans die this way.

Steam works great, otherwise you can use a degreaser and hose it off. Make sure you let it dry completey and then some before plugging back in.
