Open Question

Fan stopped I've had my fan for about a year and the blades just stopped turning. Still getting power and other features of the fan still work. Is there a way I can fix this or is it time to buy a new one.

    My fan did the same thing, right at being about a year old. I called Holmes and they said that I needed a receipt to make a warranty claim, which I did not have. They offered me a discount on a different model.

    I tried taking the whole fan apart and did not see anything that looked burned up. The fan spins fine when turned manually. Even with the fan powered on, it seems to give no resistance. To me, it seems as thought the fan is just not getting power for some reason, even though all other functions seem to work. The LED's light up, it makes beeping sounds when buttons are pressed, and the outside grill still spins.

    Interesting. Mine was working finw and just stopped while running - all LED lights went out and the fan stopped. I tried other outlets - no luck. I left it unplugged for a few days, replugged it, and it started working like normal; then the same thing happened after about 10 mins of working - it just blinked out. I couldn't put my hands on my warranty, etc infomation either, and I called Holmes - but had better luck than you. This model is not available any more (maybe this is why!) but they are sending me a replacement - similar model but not exactly the same - for free. I'd say, call back.

I have one of these pieces of junk. The motor swarmed, so the rest of the fan is perfect. I'll sell it for $10.00 plus shipping.

SOURCE: Fan malfunctioning

I've fixed the same problem with my fan. I’m not suggesting that you use my fix, but this is what I did:

It turns out that the red wire going into the fan motor has an inline mini fuse built into it. I had to remove the motor and open it up in order to get at the mini fuse.

I guess the manufacturer really made this one with "no user serviceable parts inside" unless you are a technician or have a technician friend.

What I did first was to check continuity between the motor windings. With the motor wires disconnected, I measured about 30 ohms between the red wire (return) and the other separate motor winding wires: yellow, blue and black. Since the red wire didn't have any connection to the other wires, bingo I found the problem. The windings don't have a return path to complete the circuit. I then had to open the motor to fix the problem.

I was sure to mark the motor housing with index marks to insure correct reassembly after the repair. Once I had the motor apart, I was careful not to stress the motor windings. They are very fragile. I carefully cut away the black shrink tubing on the red wire (this wire is the common return for the 3 speed motor). This revealed something that looked like a resistor between the red wire and the other motor windings. It is actually a 10 amp mini fuse.

I didn't have a replacement fuse that would fit inside the motor as the original so I soldered a jumper across the fuse, covered it with shrink tubing and put an inline fuse holder on the red wire outside the motor. If the fuse blows again, it will be easy to replace. I replaced all broken plastic cable ties that held the windings or cable harness in place.

I then cleaned and lubricated the motor's bushings. I used white lithium grease. The friction created from dry bushings is probably what caused the fuse to blow in the first place.

I reassembled the motor. The motor armature should spin freely if reassembly is correct. If not, redo.

This seems a little long, but it actually worked. The fan is once again pushing that cool breeze.

Also, a note to technicians; a pretty decent application circuit and schematic of the fan’s controller unit IC (SC8207) can be found in pdf format at: http://www.silan.com.cn/english/product/pdf/20090402103358633742652383299234.pdf

SOURCE: 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.

I have a sidewinder model 312 342 in which we only use the hand remote. The wal mount remote was not installed. The hand remote does not have the feature to reverse the blades. is there another remote...

The short answer is no.
Since it is not a function of the fan's original remote control buying any remote that has this (as a custom feature) will never work with your fan. . . Sorry


Since you usually only change the rotation twice a year this is accomplished by a switch on the fan itself.
During winter heating, to help move warm air that is trapped on the ceiling, blades should turn 'forward' in a clockwise motion. This movement will push up the air and pull the warm trapped air down the sides of the room improving heat distribution.

During hot summer weather, to help produce a comfortable breeze or 'windchill' that cools the skin, blades should rotate in a 'reverse' counter-clockwise motion. The air movement has the same comfortable effect as when you fan yourself with a magazine to get relief from hot, stifling air.

Hope this helps,

My condenser fan is running backward

An abrupt cycle of power can cause a motor to run backwards. If you turn the power off again and wait 10 seconds or so (enough for blade to stop spinning) it should run the right way. Put the capacitor back the other way and try again.

My magic refigerator/freezer condenser fan stops but when I move the fan blade it starts working and the refrigerator get cold again. Is it a bad fan unit or something else?

yes if you can barely touch blade and it stops the fan motor is bad. While replacing conderser fan motor be sure to clean dust from condenser coil.Then as regular maintiance clean coils twice per year.

My fan is not rotating when I connected to plug. There is no burning smell or anything. How can I fix the problem? Thanks in advance


I have a Holmes pedestal fan that does this every few years. I have had this fan for about 10 years.

Unplug the fan and remove the fan blade guard. The fan blade should spin easily when you tap the edge of the fan blades with your finger. If the blade barely moves and abruptly stops, the bearings are dirty and need to be cleaned and oiled with 10W non-detergent motor oil. A quick-fix is a tiny bit of WD-40 where the motor shaft (the rod that the fan blade is mounted on) meets the bearing (the part of the motor that the shaft spins on). To properly fix this, you must oil both the front and back motor bearings which requires removal of the motor housing.

If the fan blade spins easily and you are certain that the fan is getting power (try a different outlet) the motor may be bad. Likewise, if the fan blade will not move at all. I do not know if Holmes sells motors for these fans. Here is their online support website:


Good luck from Detroit, MI.

P.S.: Never turn a motor-operated appliance on for more than a second if you know it's not working. That will cook the motor windings.

I have a Trane AC unit, model HIDE036506A which is about 14 years old. The fan and compressor all of a sudden stopped. I can start the fan by hand but the compressor sounds like it wants to start but...

sounds as if the fan motor is getting hot and going off on internal overload (safety). - which causes the compressor to heat up and also go off.
When this happens the usual 'fix' is to replace the motor although you can try replacing the capacitor.
Since you only see one (capacitor) it's possible it's a 'dual capacitor' which means it's the serving the compressor AND the fan motor.
I would replace the fan motor.
Note: I've seen 'shorted' fan motors before - where the blade just barely turns and you would not want to touch the blade because it will give you an electrical shock.
I would be very careful touching the blade of that motor with the power on.-

F519-ORB stopped working

the first thing i would check is the wire connections under the cover at celing possible loose connection check wire nuts be carful turn power off befor serviceing ps dumb question is the switch on

One fan blade stopped working and is hot to touch

The motor is 'locked up' that's where the heat is coming from. It may have a bad bushing or something is jammed. Give it a good look over you may see it. Does the blade feel hard to turn?

Blades stopped on my 02 cool fan.

I love the 02 Cool rechargeable/battery operated fans and have them running in my home and office daily. However, they do have a limited lifespan. I get about 6-9 months of daily use before the fan motor goes dead and the blades stop turning. However, I'll keep buying them. I live in an area where we frequently lose power and the rechargeable/battery operated feature pays off when it does so on a hot day.

Fan and remote not working

make sure the main switch is on ,also the chain switch on ,before using control remote!!

Fan doesn't work, blades don't turn

Jump out the switch first that will show which is not working
