Fan makes clicking noise when oscillating

I have a stand up fan that, when it oscillates, it gets stuck when it turns all the way left or right and makes a loud clicking noise. When I push it or spin it, it usually stops, but then does it again the other way. I tried to turn it and take the screw out, but nothing works. Please let me know what to do. Thank you.

    My brand new Sona standing fan with metal blades is powerful but makes loud noises, the sound of wind i think. Rather than discard it what can i do to the blade to reduce the noise?

    My fan doesn't always oscillate, can I fix it myself? I know there is a little screw where it oscillates and sometimes if I turn it,it works.

Inside the motor there is a nylon gear that is broken. the oscillation operates off a gear connected to the motor drive.

    the guard comes off by rotating several clips around the outside of the guard. there may be two rivets or screws at the bottom that have to come off. the blade is held on by the white knob. it is screwed on with a left hand thread. hang on to the blade and turn in a counter clockwise direction. pull off the fan blade. there will be a roll pin in the shaft. the roll pin must be removed. the two halves of the housing are screwed together. take out the two screws. the housing also has the bottom pivot for the oscillations. this is a rivet not a conventional bolt. rotate the motor armature by hand until it reaches its extreme direction and you'll see what's broken or stripped. on your computer find a parts place for your particular fan. nelson appliance may have the parts or can steer you to a place that will have parts.

Fan will not oscillate anymore. it makes a clicking noise like it's stuck

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
f the fan doesn't work at all, make sure power is on at the outlet, then test the power cord . Test the motor and replace it if it is faulty. Clean and test the speed-control switch and service it if it is faulty . If the fan works on only some speeds, clean and test the speed-control switch .
If an oscillating fan doesn't move from side to side, check the clutch knob, then the gear assembly. If the gear assembly is faulty, you can service it (see below).
If the fan blades turn slowly, check the blades for a loose hub and tighten if needed. If the fan shaft is noisy or dry, lubricate it.

Oscillating table fan makes banging noise when rotating

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like that oscillating swtich is either a little loose or could use a drop or 2 of 3 in 1 oil. Try to twist offf the oscillating swatch button and see if you can tighten it or put a drop of oil on it.

Accutek stand fan just hums, won't turn

That means the bearings are dry and have locked. Simply open the motor cover by removing the screw and pull the oscillation knob by rocking it side by side gently to have free access to the motor.

MAKE SURE THE FAN IS UNPLUG FIRST. Use cream type grease on both ends of the shaft. After applying the grease rotate the blades until they're freely and you feel the blades have released.

Place the motor cover back and the oscillation knob and plug-in the fan. Leave it on HIGH for 10-minutes or more to make the rotor loose with the grease.
