Fan blades turn slowly on Electric Window Fan-- how to fix?
The W B Marvin Mfg Company (of Urbana, Ohio) made wonderful window fans flanked by screens. The frame could expand sideways, so these fans fit into any window with a width of 22" or more (up to about 37"). Circulated the air, but kept the bugs outside!
I really like these fans, and I have several. One is not working well: the fan-blade assembly turns very slowly -- a single go-round takes about 3 seconds. I'm guessing that the motor needs to be oiled or to have some gunk cleaned out. Or maybe the problem is a bearing gone bad. Or...? Ideas? suggestions? instructions on how to fix this? I'm handy, but I've never done any repairs on small motors.
Too bad that Marvin Mfg went out of business.
Is this a good question?
