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.

I am having trouble getting my Dayton Portable Oil fired Heater Model # 2E218E to keep running.


May be the primary control if you already replaced the photocell. Make sure the photocell is in direct line of sight with the flame.

Fan sweaks, is it a bearing?


Vornado makes several fan models. Whether yours has ball bearings, sleeve bearings or another type is unknown. Most manufacturers of consumer grade fans use "permanently lubricated bearings" and require no additional lubrication by the owner "for the life of the fan".

If yours does accept lubrication, you should find a "filler neck" at the front and rear of the motor housing - directly over the motor's shaft (that the fan blade is attached to). A few drops of a light bodied machine oil in each should quiet the squeaking sounds (if coming from the bearing). If there is no such filler neck on the fan, you could unplug the fan and rest it on its back - fan aimed straight up. Squirt a couple drops of oil on the shaft - close to the motor. Because the fan is pointed straight up, gravity will draw the oil down the shaft into the bearing. You may not be able to access the shaft at the rear of the motor without some dis-assembly however. You should not attempt dis-assembly if you're not sure how to go about it. After the oil has run into the bearing, you should spread out newspaper or rags under the fan(or better yet - brought outside - before powering it on, as some oil may be cast off the shaft if it spins fast enough or if there was an excessive amount of oil applied to the shaft.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Fan bearing dry. Lubricate shaft as close to fan body as possible as temporary fix. May need to renew fan soon.

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.

Not sure which pedestal fan it is. Speed is a dial, not three distinct speeds. Just found and cleaned it, but now it will not start up unless I spin the blades by hand 6-10 times to get it going. Seems...


Here is a write up I did for Humidifier fan motors---
the same principle applies to pedestal fans, too-- You are right-- the bearings get dried out-- and the shaft 'STICKS!!
Let me know what you tihink of this write up-- try it and let me now what I left out-

Mack B

Have you considered checking to see if the fan motor might just need cleaning and lubricating?
Most small fans and heaters, have small fan motors, in which the bearings have dried out over the years. If you have made an electrical check on the motor leads-- and you have electric going into the windings, likely the motor feels warm? (If not-- possibly a bad splice where the supply wire attaches to the tiny armature wires?-- check , and check continuity)

If you want to tear into the fan motor, and clean up and lubricate the bearings-- here are some tips:

First you need to get inside the heater of the fan housing-- by removing the protective covers.
Note the screws, sizes, locations, and how the protective covers will go back on when you are ready to reassembly-- Mark where the screw holes are that line up with the matching other parts.

Then remove the motor from it's bracket (Possibly have to remove the fan first?)
You will have to remove the fan, to lubricate both front and real bearings.
Next you will need to remove the 4 long screws that hold the motor frame together-- Be sure to mark the original alignment, so you can reassembly correctly.

Now, with the fan removed, gently separate the Front and rear half's of the motor. Usually the windings will stay with the portion of the motor where the wires are still attached. Either way, you are going to have to get the bearings to slide off both Shafts of the armature-- without breaking the delicate winding wires-- the wires are hair thin on small motors!

Now clean up the caked on residue on the shaft where the bearings ride, with rubbing alcohol. Clean up the internals of the bearings as best you can- making sure the pores of the oil-lite bearings are not plugged with solids. Now begin the gentle process of getting the bearing wicking to soak up new oil. When you are sure the reservoirs are well saturated, then generously lubricate the shafts, and slip them thru the bearings again-- retracing all your steps above, The motor shaft should turn freely now. You can test the motor without the fan on-- to be sure you have the motor itself reassembled properly.

Double check all the splices, switches, and any high temperature limit switches for continuity-- and trace the wiring all the way back out thru the power supply cord.

What did you find, and what do you need to do next?

Where are the bearings that need oiling on my oil furnace motor dayton 8U386?


There may not be any access ports to these bearings...
Most new motors today do not expect to be lubricated in their life's expectancy.
If the bearings are designed to accept oil, there will be either an obvious hole on the top side, (so that gravity can pull the oil down into the wicking or packing box..)
If not-- there is no way of 'oiling' them--

So-- Are you having problems, that tell you that you need to lubricate these bearings?
Like squealing or squeaking-- or 'dry' sounds when the motor slows down?
