Honeywell HY 254 TGT Troubleshooting

Model: HY-254-TGT

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

The tower squeals fan turns and air is moving. What can be done?

Fan started changing it's own settings at random and the only way to turn it off was to unplug it. After a few weeks of this, the fan now runs only on low speed and oscillates. The remote has no effect. The controls in top of the unit have no effect. Plug it in and it's on as described. Only way to turn it off is to unplug it. Seems like a problem on the logic board. Hopefully, I can find a replacement part.

I'm having the same problem Neil, now my remote works to oscillate & up /down speed but dosnt turn the fan on or off, is there any way to buy a new remote ?

I ended up purchasing a new fan. It seems that replacement parts are just not to be had. It's a shame, too. I hate the thought of the old fan ending up in a landfill somewhere when simply replacing the logic board would make the fan like new again. As of this writing, I still have the old fan… hoping replacement parts are available somewhere.
