Fan does not turn on ¶ 

The fan is unresponsive after pressing any button.

Lack of power ¶ 

If the fan seems to be completely unresponsive, the first step is to make sure the fan is plugged in. Check the connection into the wall to make sure it is not loose in the socket. If the problem is not solved, try plugging the fan into another outlet.

Bad wire connections ¶ 

After determining that the outlet is not the problem, the next step is to check the connections inside of the fan. You may need to connect any disconnected wires either by twisting them together or soldering. For guidance on checking connections and soldering, please refer to the following guide: Repairing the LEDs.

Bad fuse ¶ 

If all of the connections are solid but the fan is still unresponsive, the next step is to check the fuse and replace it if necessary. Inspecting the fuse involves checking the resistance of the fuse using an ohmmeter as well as soldering to remove and replace it. For more help on soldering and checking the fuse, please refer to the following guide: Repairing the LEDs.

LEDs do not light up ¶ 

The fan turns on and works, but there are no functioning lights.

Bad connections ¶ 

Bad connections might cause the LEDs to not function. The first step to resolving this problem is to take apart the fan and check the connections of the LEDs to the circuit board. Look for any loose connections or broken wires. For instructions on fixing connections, please refer to the following guide: Repairing the LEDs.

Bad LEDs ¶ 

If fixing the connections does not resolve the problem, the LEDs may have gone bad. Buy new LEDs and replace them referring to the following guide: Repairing the LEDs.

Air flow is restricted ¶

Dirty fan blades ¶ 

If airflow is restricted, the fan blades may be dirty. Dust may accumulate between the fan blades and result in blockage.

Lack of lubrication ¶ 

Lack of lubrication may cause the fan to not rotate. First, take time to open the fan and check if anything is blocking the fan from rotating. If there is, then remove the object. Otherwise, the problem could be the lack of lubrication. The next step is to remove the fan and lubricate the track referring to the following guide: Repairing the Rotation and Vibration of the Fan.

Blockage of track ¶ 

If the fan does not rotate or stutters when rotating, there may be a blockage on the track. Take the fan apart and clean the track of all dust and other debris. Refer to the following guide for taking apart the fan and clearing blockage on the track: Repairing the Rotation and Vibration of the Fan.

My fan has terrible rattling when it's on. It goes away when it's horizontal, but returns when I stand it up. It's not very old. Any ideas?

My fan turns on but then shuts off 10 minutes later and will not stay on. Everything else appears to work fine.
