I have a pedestal fan that I used in my construction business drying out carpets, moving stagnant air out of work areas etc and it finally gave up the ghost and quit working (burned out) and I would like to find out where I can get a replacement motor for it. The housing and blades are NOT damaged and I would like to use it this summer in my work shop but I need a new motor for this Hampton Bay Pedestal fan hpv 20b part # ?

How to assemble and use your new Dyson Cool AM08 Air Multiplier pedestal fan: adjust the power and oscillation, set the sleep timer and store the remote. The sleep timer can be set between 15 minutes and nine hours.
i would google the model number and/or the brand name "pro standard" and see what comes up, find out who the manufacture is and then contact them, just replacing the blade with another that might fit can lead to death of the motor, the pitch of the blade is the critical factor too much and you will overload the motor, causing it to go out on overload or just burn it out. not enough pitch it will work but will be less efficient ie... not move as much air as the original
With the fan UNPLUGGED, try to spin the fan blade with a pencil or something that will fit through the blade cage.
If the blade spins easily, there is an electronic problem (control or motor) that must be serviced.
If the fan blade is stuck or very hard to move, the shaft and bearing are probably dirty and need to be cleaned. You can temporarily fix this with a tiny amount (a drop) of WD-40 applied to the shaft where it enters the motor. Spin the blade manually to work the oil into the bearing. If the motor spins freely, the dirty bearing condition is verified. To properly clean the shaft and bearings, the motor must be disassembled.
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!
My wife and I originally had the same problem, and it didn't help that the washroom was a slick tile floor. First add as much weight as possible to your pedestal. We have ours full of detergents, bleach, fabric softener, etc., and have several of each so that the pedestal is completely full. When mounted on the pedestal, the washer is quite top-heavy, and the added weight in the bottom helped immensely. Second, make sure your washer is level, both the feet resting on the pedestal and the feet of the pedestal itself, and tighten the secondary rings so the feet don't vibrate out of place. Last, I purchased some thin rubber padding (approximately the thickness of leather) from Home Depot in the carpet aisle. Cut some small squares and place one under each foot of the pedestal. This gives the feet some additional "grabbing power" on slick floors.
