Lithium grease and WD40 are electrically conductive, therefore they should not be used anywhere near a motor.

You can generally find new motors at an electric motor shop, check the yellow pages. However they are many times more money than a new fan. Then add time and your drive to get the motor, my recommendation is purchase a new fan, cheaper in the long run.

The fan blades have to be balanced for it to run smoothly.
This website looks like it's straight from 1995, but the instructions are good and you should be able to rebalance your fan without too much trouble.

There is usually a pin in the shaft of the motor, that corrosponds with a slot in the fan blades, it sounds to me like either (a) the pin somehow came out, or (b) the slot in the blades is rounded. Hope this helps

I would recommend that you replace your fan. It sound like you got good use out of it. A good fan for you may be the Lasko 3900. Not only will it circulate the air but it will filter it also and the filter is easily replaceable. Here is a link to Amazon where you can check it out.


I hope this helps you.

Most have a one-time thermal fuse wired into the motor. You would have to remove cage and fan blade, unscrew motor mounts, open motor casing, locate fuse by cutting open or sliding off the thermal sleeves, cut fuse out and resolder a new thermal fuse in. Should be able to locate replacement thermal fuse online. Can also just splice ends together but then you lose thermal protection and a fire can result. It is a good temporary fix to diagnose if you have burnt out one of the motor coils.

The blade may not have been reinstalled correctly and/or the nut may have gotten cross-threaded or stripped in the proces
