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.

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.
A common problem on these dryers is the blower wheel itself will wobble out and make noises. Pop the top with a putty knife then remove the front panel. Check the blower housing for looseness.or something in it. I worked on a monkey wards dryer with a bad blower wheel and made crappy movie on my phone:
Do you happen to have plastic rim covers? An auto mechanic suggested that these can rub or oscillate in just the right way to make you think you have a permanent rock stuck in your tire treads. It drove me nuts! But sure enough, I removed the rim coves and there was no noise at all. I ended up putting the same ones back on again with double-sided tape (double layered) along the inside rim of the covers and this stopped the noise for some time. Alas, one winter later, I'm hearing noises again. I've pulled them off again this week, but with my black rims underneath, the van looks like some undercover cop car!
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.
yes.this means the left wheel bearing is bad, because when you turn right the pressure is pushing down on the left wheel causing noise and when you turn left the pressure then pushes down on the right side removing pressure from the left side causing noise to stop.. this is why when you turn one way or the other the noise stops and starts.
Check your cv (constant velocity joint) , It may have a big clearance which is the source of the noise when turning left or right and when 4wd is engage. Juts like front wheel drive cars, if the cv joint is with clearance it will tend to sound in the left or right turns. It is not exactly clicking sound , nmore like knocking sound , low in pitch, but not heavy.
My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!
