Honeywell HY 254 TGT Troubleshooting

Model: HY-254-TGT

The fan is not turning on ¶ 

Not plugged in properly ¶ 

If the fan does not turn on, ensure the fan is plugged in properly.

Buttons and or remote not in working order ¶ 

If no noise occurs, ensure both the remote and front panel do not start the fan. If only one does not function, please check the respective repair guide for the remote or front panel buttons. If neither the remote nor the front panel starts the fan, you may need to replace the motor assembly.

Obstructed fan blade ¶ 

If the fan makes noise but no air moves, look at this guide to open the fan and remove any objects obstructing the fan blade.

The fan is not rotating or is rotating slowly ¶ 

Obstructed fan blade ¶ 

If the fan is not oscillating properly, the fan blades may have an object obstructing their motion. Follow this guide to remove the fan casing and ensure that nothing is in the way.

Faulty oscillation motor ¶ 

If the fan is not oscillating properly and there are no objects obstructing it, you may need to replace the oscillation motor.

The front panel buttons do not respond ¶ 

Stuck buttons ¶ 

If the front panel buttons are not responding, the buttons are likely stuck, due to dirt that has gotten under them. View this guide to repair stuck buttons.

Broken buttons ¶ 

The buttons themselves could also be broken. View this guide to repair or replace broken buttons.

The remote does not respond ¶ 

No clear line of sight between the remote and the fan ¶ 

Make sure that there is a clear line of sight between the IR blaster and IR receiver.

Batteries not in working order ¶ 

If the remote does not turn on the fan, ensure the remote has functional batteries. If not, use this guide to replace them.

Faulty remote ¶ 

If the remote is still not working, it may be faulty. You will have to take the remote apart and replace the circuit board, or just replace the entire remote.
