SOURCE: replacement fan blade for fan

I have one of these pieces of junk. The motor swarmed, so the rest of the fan is perfect. I'll sell it for $10.00 plus shipping.

SOURCE: Fan keeps cutting off after being taken apart and cleaned

If it was wired wrong it wouldn't run. I would suspect uneven tightening of the motor screws.

SOURCE: How do you clean Patton Floor fan?

The grill is in two halves with the back half attached to the motor. The front with the round patton insignia removes easily by applying leverage with a screwdriver. There are eight spots (at least on mine) where it clips. Be sure to remove any disposable plastic fastener holding the two halves together. Its pretty easy.

SOURCE: Any idea where I can get replacement metal fan

I'm not all up on Patton Model#s, but this is an older unit, correct? You may try contacting Patton (Owned by Holmes now so you may have to go through them)

If they cannot help you, try www.dtvintagefans.org There's collectors there that may have parts fans that they may be willing to sell a blade.

Alternatively, you may try Grainger, as they sell an assortment of blades. You will need to match a blade to your motor though, which should be fairly easy as the Patton fans use a common McMillan motor which most attic fans also use.

The Patton Floor Fan I have quit working when a shirt was sucked into it and no-one was home. I am wondering if they have a fuse on the motor that can be replaced?


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.

Need a wiring diagram for 3 speed patton floor fan


A three way switch has 3 terminals, these for floor fans operate by a rotary switch but can be adapted to use any 120V Rotary toggle or rocker type switch. technically your compartment (or room provided will determine which to use). I'd suggest you replace it with one like the one that no longer works. The one good thing about fans the direction they rotate in is already determined, and with a/c current it will work even if you connect it up wrong! If it work's then fine don't over think it

Where do i find a replacement motor for my patton model u-2-1887 fan? 120v/60hz/270w/2.6 amps. or where would i get the motor rebuilt?


Before you replace it, try oiling it -- look at the little oil hole on the back of the motor housing. Or try taking it apart and cleaning it, then oiling.

Did it work before, but gradually slowed down and then refused to start? See other threads on this topic for that fan model.

Patton 1887 fan blades wont turn


I've had an 1887 since the 90s -- great fan. I have to say that FixinFax (Solution 1 above) probably didn't try to take his unit apart. My blade has stopped rotating several times over the years and I always got it going again by myself. I'm no whiz, just your average amateur handyman. In fact I am fixing the motherbleeper right now because in a week where the heat is 100 degrees it chose to slow down and stop.

Eventually it sucks enough dust into the axle housing so you have to take the motor mechanism apart and clean it. It's not terribly complicated, but you have to note how the electrical and mechanical parts go back together before disassembling. It's a little tricky to get all the housing parts to line up level again, you may have to try a couple times till the blade rotates freely. Wipe out all the dust and gunk buildup. Lubricate the axle with oil, or I just spray with WD-40. Then reassemble.

The only thing I have had to replace is the on-off knob, since it's plastic and it split. Just get a universal knob from your local hardware store.
