My Bionaire Tower fan is
I don't think it is a defect, but you may want ot check with the store.
I have a similar one that starts at a higher speed and switches down to low after a few seconds.
After that I can select the running speed.

Bionaire upright fan stopped blowing air
Throw it away. I have come to conclude that Bionaire is a junk brand that does not service their products. I have a bionaire model BCM646 humidifier purchased at COSCO and the water tank broke.
NO! I did not drop it, it just sat in the corner. I have not even used all the factory filters that came with it.
Who would have thought a made in China product (for American idiots) would break and not have replacement parts?
Such a shock considering their fine reputation.

Well, we loved our fan
Hi this is a very common problem with fans, now what has happened is that over time dust has got into the part that the fan blades spin on and this has dried up the grease that prevents the fan from stopping like it has done, using it like this will cause it to over heat and this will then cause the motor to short out and stop working all together.
now if it hasnt all ready shorted out then their is one thing you can try, make sure its not plugged in then you need to remove the cover that stops you touching the fan once this is removed you will be able to see how the fan comes off its drive, you need to take the fan off and give the part its spins on a good clean then get some grease or vaseline and give it a coating with this then put it back together this should then make your fan work unless the motor has all ready over heated.
you need to grease all the moving parts and then this will get the fan working again dont try switching it on whilst you have it in pieces make sure you put it all back together before switching it on, also check the fuse in the plug as this will blow if it has over heated.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I haven't used it in
The motor may just be stiff, or seized. take the cover off, and try spinning it with your hand. then plug it in and try it. if it doesn't work, then it's probably done. I just fixed mine today, but the base on mine was just loose. but it shouldn't be too hard to take apart.

Hi, I have a problem
There is a major problem with the fan's electronic board. There is most likely a shorted capacitor, or some sort of fried transistor somewhere. depending on your electronics know how, try troubleshooting the circuit starting with it's power supply/input. but depending on the price of the fan, and the amount of aggrivation, I would just get a new one. Remember, most of the newer appliances today are ment to only last a few years, then die. I don't care what it is. all the companies want to do is make them as cheaply as possible, so they can sell more of them, and make more money. so don't be surprised if you can't fix it. some things are just not fixable.

The fan stopped working when it was moved from one
Unplug from outlet when moving fan from one location to another, before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning.
The possible reason for light not coming on is either the power outlet in which fan is connected is faulty or the fan power cord itself is not plugged in properly.Remove and re-check both the possibilities.If both checked ok then its time to check the power to the outlet by meter.Remove the fan power cord and check it with continuity tester.if the power cord is short then continuity tester will not glow.if the power cord is ok the tester will glow red light.If power cord checked ok then its time to check the internal power supply board.There is a fuse and other electrical components on the board.If any of the one gets short or stops functioning the fan light will not power On.
The components needs to be checked with meter and faulty component has to be replaced.
1. Set the fan on a dry level surface.
2. Plug power cord into any standard 120V AC outlet.
3. To turn the fan on, press either speed control button.
4. To turn the fan off press the on/off button.
5. To turn on the oscillation feature press the oscillation
button once. To turn the oscillation feature off press
the oscillation button once.

Cleaning inside the fan
Unplug the unit from the wall for safety.
Remove the two screws in the upper hand grip recess (upper back of the unit). The two screws must be completely removed (not just loose and setting in the holes).
Once the two screws are out, the back half of the fan cover can be slid downward (some amount of force is needed to unsnap the two halves from each other but be careful since the parts are all plastic and can possibly snap).
Once the back is unsnapped from the front, you can lift the back half away from the front half and the inside parts are now accessible.
I have found on my fan that it is the top fan shaft / bushing that is causing the squeaking noise that so many have complained about. I have found that periodically lubricating the top shaft/bushing will make the fan sound like new again - for a while. Every 2 - 3 weeks I need to clean (wipe off old lube) and re-apply fresh lube).
