Question about Patton U2-1887HO Floor / Box Fan

1 Answer

My fan just suddenly won't come on, I dissassembled the motor,and just cleaned last fall, oiled the bearings, motor doesn't look like it got hot, or smell like it overheated, power is getting to motor, switch is working, if the capacator wasn't working, would the motor still hume? Is there something else that could fail and cause this problem? Thanks Dave Farley

If its sat for any length of time the lube on the shaft can harden. remove the grill and spin the blade to see if it rotates freely. using care to stay away from the blades set it to the highest setting and give the blades a little assist to see if it will begin to spin, if it does,, use some WD-40 or Trilube on the shaft of the motor front and backside Good Luck Dave. please take a moment to rate my reply (note) larger fans require more juice to get them going,, so yes , if the cap is flawed and not totally burned out,, ( they are called starting capacitors) then they are not supplying enough amps to get the job done,, which in turn would allow the motor to Hum, but repeated trying will burn out the cap

Neff circo therm need to replace cooling fan


Isolate mains.Remove oven cavity back panel (4/6 phillips or 4/6 Torx 20 screws)Remove fan blade (reverse thread nut)....this is sometimes where you come unstuck, because the blade just won't budge.If that happens I normally then remove the back panel of the unit itself (doesn't need to come all the way off, I will usually leave the mains connections on and let it fall back as far as it will go safely...may have to loosen the cable clamp to get some slack on the mains)You will now see the other side if the fan motor.Remove the L and N (not pole sensitive so they can go on the new one either way).Remove the 3 Torx20 screws holding the fan in position. (some models have an extra spacer ring so be careful you don't lose them)Go back to the cavity and use something to give the motor shaft a whack to release the fan blade, bearing in mind that if it does budge the motor itself is going to fall out the back (stick an old towel etc to cushion the fall and protect the terminal block etc).The new fan usually comes with the blade attached, separate the parts, install the motor, attached electrical connection and then the fan blade, make sure its tight. At this point I would close up the back and just hold in place with one screw and test that the fan works. (don't forget that the oven will not operate when the clock is flashing, so set any time on the clock before selecting circotherm)If everything looks ok, get it back together and in housing and run upto 150 or 200 degrees as a last test.Good luck, let me know how you get on or if you need any further clarification. Please post the outcome as this will assist other users of the site looking for solutions to similar problems.All the Best.

The brushes won't turn, and cleaning the filter (as suggested in the owner's manual) doesn't help.


Hi ken wright.
Remove the bottom of the head of the vacuum...remove the roller brush assembly.
Clean the assembly...remove the end caps and clear all hair,strings,etc from the end cap and rotating brush head.
After cleaning the brush head and bearings, lube the bearings with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in 1 oil.
Check your belt condition.
Reassemble and you should be good to go

POWER TURNS ON AT THE CONDENSER MOTOR, BUT IT WON'T START RUNNING UNLESS I START SPINNING THE BLADE ON THE MOTOR WITH A SCREW DRIVER.


Hi,
If it spins freely when it is not powered then the start capacitor has gone bad and replacing that will fix the problem...
If it does not spin freely and the bearings need oil then check out this tip on how to oil the bearings in the motor...

Dayton 30' pedestal fan will run for an hour or so, seems to run hot.. there is slight burning smell. then fan makes little noise and shuts down.


Whats happening is that your fan is overheating (usually due to a loss of lubrication in the bearings), and the motor's thermal cutoff is kicking in (due to overtemperature), and shutting down the motor.
This thermal cutoff circuit is installed in consumer motors to prevent fires.

You have two solutions:
(1) disassemble your nice 30" pedestal fan (I've done this a few times - any handy guy/gal can do it),
and lubricate (with automotive bearing grease ($3 at any auto parts store), or 3-in-1 oil for those spots that won't take bearing grease) the bearings, and
reassemble. Re-lubricate on a regular schedule to prevent recurrence.
(2) buy a new one. Give your old fan to the kid on the block who thinks he/she can fix anything &
tell him/her it just needs to be lubricated.

Unit lights up and hums but does not blow air


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the fan motor is haging up or needs to be replaced, try the switch on/off then on/off a few times see if the fan kicks on, if not see your local a/c repair shop, they come to the house.

Need to put in new bearing, it is really starting


Bearing on new motor failed for some reason, Make sure the new one will last, check that all shields and water deflecters are in place and that pump seal is not leaking. New motor bearings should be sealed but water has a bad habit of getting into anytging we try to keep dry.
I recomend replacement of pump seal whenever pump is opened and impeller is removed, cheep insurance. Take your time and make sure everything is clean as it goes back together, don't lubricate the pump seal faces, the ceramic faces are designed to be self lubricating and anything (even fingerprint oils) on them can cause a leak.
