I can tell you how to take the fan blades off your Lasko Model 3723 fan, but you might not be able to use it on your other fan. The reason why is that the motors, although similar, may not have the same diameter shaft.

Of course, you should have the power cord unplugged from the AC outlet before removing the front fan grille and placing your hands on the blades. Safety first!

The fan blades and hub are a single unit that stretches to fit onto the motor shaft. There is no setscrew at all. Take any sort of metal bar or tool such as a screwdriver or pry bar and carefully lever the hub off the shaft by pressing your lever to lift the hub a small fraction of an inch on each side, working the hub slowly upwards against the long vertical bars that support the motor. If you have reasonably strong hands, you may be able to pull the hub toward you by placing your fingertips under the edge of the hub and pressing with your thumbs against the vertical support bars as needed. It's not too difficult to do.

Good luck!

The fan wobbles cause you bought a crappy Harbor Breeze or Hampton Bay fan. The fan blades need to be balanced with a fan balance kit that comes in the box. You probably threw it out cause you didn't know what the package of weights was for. Get you a Hunter ceiling fan and you won't have an issue with fan wobble, because their fans have better quality control before leaving the factory. If you installed the fan without adequate bracket support- you best get a pro to help you out cause there is no fan wobble help for stupidity.

We have an 87 Ford f150, 8 cylinder , 2 wheel drive truck. The fan seems to be off balance, and sometimes hits the housing. Is there a gasket, or something that holds the blade tight to the front? Can I,...


A fan cannot go out of balance unless a blade is broken or bent.
If you can wobble the fan with your hand, likely either the bearing in the water pump is worn out or the fan clutch (aluminium center hub on fan) is bad.
If one of the blades is damaged, you should also have the engine mounts checked as most times if the pump and clutch are good but the fan is hitting the shroud it's caused by a mount that is allowing the engine to move enough for the fan to hit the shroud.
How easy or expensive the repair will be depends on what you find.
When diagnosing a fan problem, never stand in line with the fan..If a blade breaks off it can fly up and hurt you. Whenever observing belts or fan, keep your hands in your pockets. it will help stop you from reaching out to touch anything that's moving. Only put your hands in there with the engine OFF!!!
Good luck!!

2000 lincoln ls v8 overheating again


Some cars have 2 water temperature sensors with one operating the cooling fan and the other operating dash indicators.

Since your A/C stopped working it sounds like the power may be off in a relay. Want to say go to reputable mechanic so you do not fry your engine.

You also do not want to be taken for an A/C recharge you may not need. Cooling fan should work whether A/C is off or on.

Some fans have 2 speeds so it is possible to need a replacement if only 1 speed works. You need someone to know the power routing. For instance, is the relay getting a signal from the temperature sensor? If the power is going to the relay, does it go to the fan? Is the fan bad on 1 speed or both speeds? This is independent of whether the A/C has a full charge.

Be careful of the spinning cooling fan blades if the fan turns on without warning.

Removing ceiling fan blades


Wait? Why would you want to remove the blade? Are they broken? Is the fan unbalanced? Try cleaning the blade. If the fan still wobbles, try tightening the screws. If the fan still wobbles, Unscrew the blade and unconnect the blade from blade iron. Buy the new blade iron. If the blade is broken, Also buy the new blade.
