Tower fan: Everything works, except the blades...
edit: I’m in the process of testing the capacitor on the circuit. See the full story in comments below if you’re interested lol.
Also, the “burn marks” on the circuit, in the pictures I linked, aren’t burn marks - merely bad quality pictures.
Hi, I’m new here and also new to repairing stuff.
I’ve tore my fan apart, but I don’t really know how to diagnosis the problem. Visually I can’t see anything that seems wrong..
The buttons all work, the lights lit up when I press them, it still beeps annoyingly loud and the base still turns (from left to right to left..).
But the motor that’s supposed to make the blades spin looks dead. I detached the tower blades from it and the shaft just doesn’t move when I turn on the fan…
Except I’m thinking: it can’t be dead, it’s just copper wires and a metallic piece in the middle. So current just doesn’t reach the motor I guess? But what can cause this?
What can I do to pinpoint the issue and/or repair it?
Thanks in advance! :)
