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!!!"

Do I clean model FS10-S4R the same as model FZ10-9HB have had this for a long time really needs cleaning bad it is a wonderful fan

compressed air , you might try bringing it to a electric motor repair shop or a auto shop and ask real nice if they would be nice enough to give your fan a shot of air. a weed blower will work also but not even close to the job of compressed air. last resort is to take it apart totaly and use soapy water and a scrub brush. do not get the motor wet ! and oil the bearings on the motor with zoom spout oil #D01.. and you can milk your favorite fan out for many,many years .. this way is like cheating death! ... jay the pool pump motor repair guy in longwood fl

I have a hv- 18 model lake wood fan and the drive shaft gets sticky and the fan won start. tried light oil but it didn,t seem to help chuck ecsenger

Clean out any and all dust in the fan as that is the start of the "stick" and then get some electric parts cleaner from a local supply store. Beyond cleaning solutions the problem may lie within the motor itself (brushes, stator, etc.)

Fan is making squeeling noise when running.

After reading dozens of similar problems on here about the Vornado fans squealing (and rattling) it seems they are in need of some 3-in-1 oil for the bearings and any moving parts in and around the motor area.
Also good to keep the fan clean by wiping down and removing front grill and the fan blade...A high pressure duster or spray air canister for the motor body etc. should get out any dust inside the unit.
good luck!

Squeak in aloha breeze tower fan model 05538

If the model is equipped with a fan, and the noise occurs even when not oscillating it must be a fan/blower motor. If it is a squeak. A squeal could be an electical component going bad which is always bad. I would definitely take some bottom drawer tools , ie. screwdrivers and WD-40 and oil that squeaking motor. Being a fan it goes through alot of air pollutants. That tends to build up on the shaft and can work its way into the bearing seal. Good luck.

Aloha Breeze Tower Fan Will Not Oscillate


yes this is the oscillation motor, and they generally arent servicable, and need to be replaced, you can try and oil it, sometimes they have small air vents, and you can do a voltage test with a voltmeter but I believe the motor has failed or is gummed up, you can try and take it apart, they are held together with bent metal compression areas along the circumfrence of the motor, try sewing machine oil, you might have to do some research to find a replacement motor, maybe take it to a local clock shop, those motors are very close to what they used to put in old wall clocks.

good luck
