Repair a Stuck Fan!

A couple of days ago, my Lasko Cyclone Fan stopped working.  When I turned it on, it would make a humming noise but it would spin very slowly or not at all.  I was about to buy a new one when I saw Matthias Wandel's video showing how to fix this exact problem.  If your fan is stuck, watch these videos to see how to fix it.

Watch Matthias Wandel fix his siezed up fan:

John Heisz also had the same problem:

Before you throw away something, open it up to see if you can fix it.  What have you got to lose?  Just make sure you unplug it first!

Thanks to Matthias and John for showing me how to fix my fan!


  1. I woke up and my fan stop working its a windmill floor fan what should I do

    1. If it's not too old, return it to the store. Otherwise you could call the manufacturer to see if they can replace it for free. Last resort, if you are the type of person who likes to tinker and take stuff apart to see how it works, then you could unplug it and take it apart and try to fix it before tossing it out.
