If the blade on your Lake Breeze fan is held on with an allen screw, it's probably loose. I bought one at a thrift store lately and it had this problem.

So many fans, so few people to tell you the exact procedure on your fan model. Your unlikely to find an oil port. Grime from dust and lubricant generally ruin all fans in time and in different ways. Belt driven fans last longer. Fan company's will not recommend fixing yourself because it could be a fire hazard that they sign off on.

Just understand that the points of friction when your motor rotates have gotten too dirty/grimey/lost lubrication. Bold people keep this in mind and begin to disassemble and clean/lube. Most fans are in danger of tripping a hard to replace, buried thermal fuse. When you hear your fan struggling, understand that you may loose it for good if you trip this fuse.

What your hearing is your fan saying, "HELP ME!!!HELP ME!!!"

Check and see if the belt slipped off the motor pulley broke or wrapped around motor pulley. Check the idler pulley (large white wheel end of motor) Loose?

My motor is makeing a sqeeling sound, it turns easy enough but squeels can u wd 40??


I don't work on gas dryers normally but, It may not be your motor making the squealing noise, it is probably your drum rollers making the noise.
You need to lube the shaft of the drum rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil...while you are at it you can lube the motor also if you feel that is necessary...
I would not use WD-40 to lube the motor or drum rollers it does not have the "staying power" that 3 in One oil has and you will be re lubing again soon, also it can creep its way into the motor and cause an electrical short to the motor.

Whirlpool dryer, elctric runs but squeels. sometimes it stops squeeling once it's run for a while but lately it seems to do it the whole time. it does get quieter after it's run for a while


sounds like your "Drum Glides" need replacing, open the door and cheat the door interlock and you should be able to hear it closer by bottom of drum by lint filter if yours is located there depending on model

Dryer is sqeeling....Are there bearings that need replacement???


Yes, there are bearings and bushings. They most likely just need oiling with machine oil. I would use the machine oil for small motors (hardware store). Oil the motor bearings as well.

Pop the top of the dryer with a large slotted screwdriver prying up on each of the two front corners. Remove the screws holding the front panel of the dryer. You'll see al the stuff whcih needs oil.
