Are replacement motors available for these fans?

mcdevito75 here, If the fan is not too old I would figure yes, but a replacement motor will cost as a new fan, if not more, then you have to install and the blades are a presss fit to the motor.

How can I clean a Lakewood fan, mine is so filthy

Patton 1887 fan blades wont turn

I've had an 1887 since the 90s -- great fan. I have to say that FixinFax (Solution 1 above) probably didn't try to take his unit apart. My blade has stopped rotating several times over the years and I always got it going again by myself. I'm no whiz, just your average amateur handyman. In fact I am fixing the motherbleeper right now because in a week where the heat is 100 degrees it chose to slow down and stop.

Eventually it sucks enough dust into the axle housing so you have to take the motor mechanism apart and clean it. It's not terribly complicated, but you have to note how the electrical and mechanical parts go back together before disassembling. It's a little tricky to get all the housing parts to line up level again, you may have to try a couple times till the blade rotates freely. Wipe out all the dust and gunk buildup. Lubricate the axle with oil, or I just spray with WD-40. Then reassemble.

The only thing I have had to replace is the on-off knob, since it's plastic and it split. Just get a universal knob from your local hardware store.

Need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help

you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

I am replacing the 4 position 3 speed rotary switch with knob on a Lakewood Kool Operator 20" floor fan. Do I just pull the wires out of the broken switch and push them into the new switch?

MANY OF THEM YOU NEED TO USE A PIN PICK TO RELEASE THE WIRE SLIDE IT ALONG THE WIRE WHERE IT ENTERS

Have a 196M 3spd/hi-velocity Lakewood fan mfd 10/02. Motor sparked, I think it is over,has been the best EVER! We have been using it for well over 15 yrs. Want to fix it. Where can I get a new motor?

Unlikely I would think, a new motor will be available considering how the motor is a major part of the construction and how quickly new models replace previous models in the typical fan line up, even in the heavy duty and industrial types. Many fans use a brush type motor and after extended use the brushes will need replacing - have you had the motor checked? It might just need new brushes. If all else fails, there are small companies all over the world offering to rewind burned out motors, some specialise in the repair and rewinding of small motors, mostly to keep cherished or special power tools alive.
