The fan has been working fine. One day i unplugged it to move to another room, plugged it in and it didn't turn on. The outlet is good and the fan is one or two years old.

    I bought a Model: 10187B on 6/28/2008 at Costco. all of a sudden it won't run on the medium speed. It only oscilates, but there is no air movement. The high and the low speed run well. Does any body have experienced the same thing?

Possible Solution :

Taken From :

"Most fan motors for fan over running have an internal overload. once it trips, it will not reset. it is a solid state device. it looks like a flat device or a small bullet device. if you've figured out how to take the fan apart, you could just remove the device and connect the two wires together and the fan will run. you won't have any protection on the motor however. the windings run warm, but if the bearings run dry the motor will slow down and the windings will get hot. this is the reason for the overlaod device - protection. its your call what you want to have."

When I open the fan I found one capacitor disconnected from the board, I only resoldered the cap and it works very good.

My seville classics tower fan no longer oscillates - how can that be fixed?

Throw it away and buy a new one for 20 box at Wal-Mart. It's as simple as that cause to fix it, it'll take a new machine which cost twice the price. I think they made it to last one summer max. Friendly yours

My fan makes a loud squealing noise upon starting

open the tower if you can and check if some obstruction of wire is there or not. caution turn of the pwr before doing that . if no obstruction then the fan has to be replaced. open the fan carefully take it to best buy or wallmart and get it replaced.
it is possible for the older computer that the fan goes bad or moves faster than its normal speed . its a common problem with all brands of computer.

Fan vibrates either in stationary or rotating position

Vibrations are a cause of friction. I can only assume that the motor or the fan veins are being interferred with. If you feel comfortable you can take the case off and look or take it to a repairshop and have them look it over.

The fan fuse 1.5A/250V is keep blown up as soon as

Unplug the fan.
Open it up carefully.
Look at the the wiring for damage or shorts.
Check that the fan impeller is free to turn.
If all of the above is OK then possibly the motor has gone? If so then it will probably be cheeper to buy a new one.
