Before you rewind the wire for the motor, please be sure your home and life
insurance is paid up. You can get a new fan from the department store
cheaper than buying wire and rewinding.

Follow-up on fan that needs oiling evey day I think you'll all enjoy
Well, I took the advice to use liquid wrench to clean out the dried up
oil. I have several zoom spout oilers and one wasn't labeled, but it
didnt' smell like oil, so since all I had ever filled them with was
oil or liquid wrench, I used that.
But then I thought, I'll never get oil in now because the space is
filled with that other liquid.
So I just ran the fan that night and it worked fine, that night and
After two days it would barely turn -- if I pushed it with my finger,
it stopped immediately -- so I got REAL liquid wrench, not 15 years
old, and put some of that in the bearings. .
I sleep with my shoulder about 12 to 18" from the fan. At 3 in the
morning, I felt a warm spot on my shoulder blade. I turned around
quickly and the flames were about an inch high. I reached for the
electric switch but before I got to the switch, the flame went out.
I think the flame must have been 3 inches high to cause the warmth on
Now the fan does nothing when I turn the switch on. I have three
choices what to do next., but they will go in my next post.
Now, you may all laugh at me.
