Question about Lakewood HV12WR Window Mount Fan

2 Answers

Window Fan switch bad

This is for a (rather old) Lakewood reversable window fan. No other ID on it. 3 speeds in and 3 speeds out. With a thermostat (rotary non-click switch that works) in there, too. About 24" high and 28" wide (expandable). From my folks' home in Ohio. The main function switch is a DYE-3606 rotary switch, also called a Defond-3606 rotary switch (Defond makes them in Korea). First off, I am having trouble finding a new switch, as the only USA company I could find that has them will only sell to manufacturing companies, not individuals. BUT...if I CAN get around this, I need the schematic for the fan wires to the switch (I have a schematic of the switch connections, just not which wires on the fan) so I will know which wire on the fan goes to which connection on the switch. Unfortunately, the old switch and any connection info has long since disappeared. HELP. Thanks. (and Jesus Love me, too) <>< <><> Steve

Steve, Your fan model is HV-18-WR; I have 2 with the same problem. I can't find a source for DYE-3606 switches either. Here is one source for rotary switches; one might be suitable: http://www.alliedelec.com/Catalog/Indices/Products.asp?sid=46BBAA8076DBE17F&N=4294828748 I can draw a diagram of how the existing switch is connected, but I don't know how that would translate to a replacement switch.

I have the same problem. I have a new switch but I need the wiring diagram to know which wire goes to which connection on the switch. If you have the diagram please contact me via email. [email protected]

Fan will not run without starting it yourself and will not run high speed at all

Sounds like an old unit with a bad run capacitor or

check the components on the board for burnt wiring.

Fans on window units are controlled by a 3way switch. High, Med., and low. Your power and in most cases a capacitor which doubles for the compressor and fan.

So it can only be 1 of the 3
Burnt out windings on the motor
Bad switch
Bad capacitor

I have an old hunter window fan that the switch went bad. I need someone to fix it, but having trouble finding someone who can do the work. I live in Philadelphia can you help me. The fan is a least 50...

Hi,

you might visit www.dtvintagefans.org (which is my website) or www.fancollectors.org (Antique Fan Collectors Association) There are Forums on both websites with people who are more knowledgeable about these old Hunter window fans than I am. Is your fan a 2 speed?

Why is fan floor spin but not air is flowing

mcdevito75 here, Check to see if there is a reverse switch on the fan, most of them do, if so flip the switch for proper air flow. the Reverse switch may be together with the speed / on/ off switch either by pulling in it or depressing it, or the reverse switch could be seperate, as say a littler toggle switch. The reverse switch could be with the on/off switch, try to pull or depress the on/off switch and note fan spin direction, also try to twist the on/off switch for fan reversal.

I dont understand how the intake and exaust features work, and the temp guages work? i just use max speed ,

mcdevito75 here, The intake and exhaust feature is simply a reversal of the fan motor or motors. On intake all the air is being brought in from the outside to inside your home, this is fine for the spring and fall, but in the summer time when it"s both hot outside and inside your home you"d want to use the exhaust feature to get the hot air out of your home and let fresh air from the outside in. The temperature settings, unless your fan is actually an air conditioner and not a window fan are the fan motor speeds, you set these speeds to suit yourself. If this unit is an air conditioner you can set the teperature aorund 65 degrees or approx. Half way thur the blue sash on the knob or half way between cool and cooler depending on how your teperature settings read.

Lakewood box fan 3 speed switch wiring schmatic

What I did was (but be VERY VERY carefull) is have the fan plugged in, and check which wires give which speed when you touch the main wire. VERY carefull. I'm not liable for any harm done to you or your fan.

3 speed switch wiring schmatic

On a 3 speed switch you usually have 4 terminals, and they are marked L1, 1, 2 and 3.
L1 which is line voltage from the electrical cord or wall plug, #1 low speed usually a red wire from motor, #2 medium speed usually a blue wire from the motor and #3 high speed usually a black wire from the motor. That is if the fan is low,medium and high, if it says high, medium and low then reverse #1, #2 and #3

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.
