I bought a fan and two days later my grandson dropped it and it stopped turning. Its been stuck in one position for about two weeks. Finally I said I know someone on the internet is gonna no what is wrong and how to fix it. Thank you. I fixed my fan in about 10 minutes. The oscillating handle had just come lose from the screw. Everybody thinks I'm a genius. LOL! Super grandma strikes again!
