this is what i found.
not sure if its what you are asking. Which direction does a motor turn?
In our simplified diagram, we can say that the wire moving to the left is the equivalent of the motor turning counter-clockwise, and moving right is clockwise. Now, we apply Fleming's left hand rule to determine the direction of the force.30 Dec 2015
Depends on what type of fan you have some do get stuck and feel like they are going to break but you can try this trick. As you are turning the globe counter clockwise pess the globe upward and if tht does not work try spraying some magical WD 40 (very little) and see if that works.
Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Yes, the seal has been leaking and it needs to be replaced; probably the motor bearings too.
Removing the impeller requires you lock the shaft as you turn the impeller off counter-clockwise. To lock the impeller you will have to remove the motor end cover or a cap covering the shaft end depending on which version your particular motor has. Look at the end opposite the pump and imagine a shaft from one end to the other right in the center.
Once you remove the cover you will see a slot for a screwdriver, a flat for a wrench, a hex hole for a hex key or some combination of these. Lock the shaft and spin off the impeller. Some are so tight you will end up breaking them in the process. Simply replace it and the seal. Be sure the motor shaft is in good enough condition to allow the new seal to work properly. If too much shaft material has rotted away the new seal will leak soon after it is installed; you would need a new motor at that point.

air should be coming out of the top. It will work either way. If your fan is reversible it will have a sticker on the side explaining how to reverse it and it will have exttra wires plugged into each other right at the motor. good luck
The spindle screw is
reverse tread and you need to turn it clockwise to loosen and counter clockwise
to tighten the screw. You can usually hold the spindle with your hand then turn
the screw clockwise to loosen the screw. Worst case scenario, carefully turn the machine upside down.
Place it on a clean supporting surface. Use a flat-head screwdriver or similar
device to remove the plastic gear cover to gain access to socket-head screw. Carefully
place the machine on its side. Attach
the spindle adapter to the motor shaft turning
the spindle adapter counter-clockwise on the shaft. NOTE: Motor shaft has a left-hand thread. Place a 7/16" open-end wrench on the flats of spindle adapter.
Insert a 3/16" hex wrench into the socket-head screw
located where the plastic gear cover was removed. Hold the hex wrench to prevent the motor shaft from turning. Turn the
wrench counter -clock wise to fasten the spindle adapter on the motor shaft. Reinstall the plastic gear cover that was removed above.
I believe the jacuzzi pump impeller has a locking screw directly in the middle of the impeller. You'll have to turn it clockwise to remove it. Then you'll need to remove the cover from the back of the motor using a 1/4" nut driver. Depending on the motor, you should be able to use a 7/16" open end wrench to hold the motor shaft from turning as you turn the impeller counter-clockwise to remove it. Some motors are different, some have a keyed shaft or require a special tool to hold the shaft while the impeller is removed. Hope this helps.
The condensor fan should be sucking air from the top and blowing it through the coils, probably a counter clockwise direction. The buzzing/humming sound is confusing to me. A humming sound sounds like a motor that can not turn over to start. A starting capacity would be needed. Just because you changed it out last year does not mean it is good. A buzzing sound sounds like a contactor problem. Contactors buzz and after a while, they will fail. In any case, you can "stick start" the condensor fan PROVIDED you are sure the ac compressor is working (this is for a short and temporary use). Also, you may have a high load duty capacitor that assists in the unit running. This will affect your condensor fan operation if it is not good. Unless you know all the components and operations of ac electrical, I would highly recommend calling out a professional.
not sure of the lasko brand but some fans have a cap over the center of the blades that must be unscrewed to remove the blades.( the motor shaft has threads on the end of it ).
some older models actually have the blades that unscrew opposite of turning direction, and you have to find a way to grip the motor shaft and unscrew the blades........
hope this helps.............jay
you can but now you have to turn the motor shaft at the belt end..i believe you can put your adjustable behind the plastic square blower wheel shaft..on the motor shaft and try turning with your hand its hard to turn because the drum when turning turns the oppsite way,,im,,here onthejob..use gloves
