Tower fans are now also available with the remote control which makes them more convenient. There are moments when they do not move as fast as they need or are creating strange sounds when they oscillate or whatever. Here are some suggestions on how to fix a tower fan
Unplug the fan before repairing the tower fan. If the fan head does not move or emits noise as it moves, it may have the loose gear or worn gear on the clutch knob. If you decide not to replace the gears or clutches, the only option is to keep your head standing still.
How to fix oscillating tower fan
Open the fan oven. Then remove all nuts, parts, pins or clamps to remove the blade assembly from the engine. Remove the blade assembly.
Check the engine cover, shaft, blade and grill to see if they need to be cleaned. Use a brush, cloth or even the attachment to your vacuum cleaner to remove any debris. Tighten the cover.
Check the screw for any worn or damaged parts. Tighten the screws if you find it looks loose. Screws set the blade balance. If the screw is loose, the blade will not move properly.
Check the engine cover and gearbox. If they feel loose, tighten them. If they are worn and will not be tightened, then you need to replace both the engine cover and the gear unit.
Assemble the fan after tightening the cover and clutch gear. Lubricate the shaft of the fan with household lubricant or turbine oil. Hope you successfully modified your tower fan!
