Question about Seville Classics MSC10166 Tower Fan
The fan has been working fine. One day i unplugged it to move to another room, plugged it in and it didn't turn on. The outlet is good and the fan is one or two years old.
Possible Solution :
Taken From :
"Most fan motors for fan over running have an internal overload. once it trips, it will not reset. it is a solid state device. it looks like a flat device or a small bullet device. if you've figured out how to take the fan apart, you could just remove the device and connect the two wires together and the fan will run. you won't have any protection on the motor however. the windings run warm, but if the bearings run dry the motor will slow down and the windings will get hot. this is the reason for the overlaod device - protection. its your call what you want to have."

When I open the fan I found one capacitor disconnected from the board, I only resoldered the cap and it works very good.
