Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have an old 2-speed 110/220v small Crown table Fan that suddenly lost power on both speeds. So, it runs on a very low speed for both speeds High and Low,

It contains a 1 Microfarad /400v capacitor and I changed it but no change, can you help please?

The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.

SOURCE: 04 Wrangler AC fan only works on high speed (position4).

Its the switch behind the fan nob thats not making contact, you have to pop the cover off the dash where the radio fan and other gizmos are. Then remove the fan nobs by pulling them straight off after that unscrew the housing unit inside is the switch. You must carefully pry this open so as not to break the plastic clips holding it together the switch thats fryed should just pop out easy replacement fan switch! If my mind serves me right it costs 40$ to replace if you order from chrysler.

SOURCE: How do I change the heater fan speed control in a

On the back of the control panel there is a plastic connector that plugs into the fan speed control. You can unplug it and use a meter to find incoming (hotwire) take a jumper or a 6 inch peice of wire and insert it into the spade where the hot wire is wired to. Take the other end of the wire and insert it into the 1st spade in the plastic connector next to the hot wire spade this will let you know that the fan will run at the selected speed. Then pull the test wire out and plug it into the next spade and so on and so on. I am sure your fan will respond step by step , fan speed 1 then 2 and then 3. After you make this test you will know that your fan is ok. You will just have to replace the plastic connector with new spades in it. You should see some evidence of over heating on the old connector. It may be that you only need to unsnap the connector and then reconnet it and it will probably work fine. It has proberly just become partially unpluged. All the other info that I gave you early on was just to trouble shoot it. mike

Most fans have a small rectangular multi-tap capacitor connected to the speed control in the fan. It is likely that this has gone partially bad. The capacitance values are printed on it. Lighting stores and big box hardware stores generally carry replacements.

3 speed fan switch


Check your capacitor to see if it's going bad. Also I would put the old switch back in case you got the wrong one. Just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

My old ceiling fan capacitor has A B C D on the back , the new capacitor has 1 2 3 4, how do I connect the new one????


I just changed out an old ADCB (172-90-001 / 1-81-M) fan speed switch with a L123 3 speed switch (Westinghouse 77286). My fan was only 2 speed but the 3 speed switch was all the Home Depot had in stock. So I knew I would have OFF occurring twice in the pull sequence. Its an old Hunter fan that came with the house.

A-Unused
B-Went to 1 (Blue Wire)
C-Went to 2 (Red Wire)
D-Went to L (Black Wire)

I originally put B (the Blue Wire) into spot 3, leaving 1 unused. But that made the pull order go OFF-OFF-LOW-HIGH.

So moving the Blue Wire to the 1 slot resulted in OFF-HIGH-LOW-OFF

Hope this helps!

well, they could have. but before you throw it out, go to the hardware store, and buy a new pull switch. either that, or just run it with the high and low speeds. It shouldn't hurt it at all. But, if there is any clicking sounds, or wierd noises coming from it , DON'T USE IT!! it may catch fire. but it did last a long time. 20 years is good for a modern celing fan. though I like my antique 1907 westinghouse 72 inch 2 blade fan. It hasn't died yet!!!

We have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan (about 10 yrs old) don't know the model. It will only turn 1 speed? When trying to change speeds with the chain pull it stays the same. It quit working for a while and I...


the fan changes speed by inserting a capacitor of different values in series with the motor .. direct drive to the motor is the fastest speed .. a large capacitor in series slows it down a bit and a smaller capacitor slows it down more ... so if your fan is running at full speed all the time then one of the capacitors is shorted or the switch is bad .. if its stuck on one of the lower speed settings then the switch has a bad contact .. the capacitors are mounted together in a small box with several wires going to the pull chain switch .. you can replace the capacitor box .. and you can replace the 3 or 4 position switch ... or you can remove all that stuff and put in a remote controled system .. that involves a box that just fits inside the fan .. it is hooked to AC power and neutral .. it then hooks up to the lilght and the fan giving you control over both .. you can vary brightness and fan speed .. you would no longer need the fan or light pull switch or the capacitors ... you could also get a new fan having such a controller .. since yours is fairly old it might be worthwhile to upgrade .. some of the remote controls allow you to set a temperature ..if the room goes above that temp then the fan turns on automatically and the speed is determined by how much higher the room temprature is from that set value .. some remotes also give you an additional very low fan speed .. thats nice at night when you just need a gentle breeze .. some also allow you to set a delay before the lights go out after you have clicked "turn off" ... that gives you time to exit the room or get in bed before the lights actually go out ... kindof nice features that might make it worth while to up grade .. to get parts for your old fan see this URL

since Home Depot sells hampton bay .. then they might have parts as well .. worth a try .. you can also see new models there ..

My name is Ron,and I will try to assist you.There is a blower motor resister that controls the speed that you set on the speed control,manual,or automatic.It is located near the blower motor.Most of the time under the dash,behind the glove box.It most likely mounted with two,maybe three screws.If it is not in that location,look under the hood passengers side,under the windshield, on the fire wall.It will have a multi-wire plug in going to it.Take the screws out,not loosing them(they are small)and pull the resister out toward you.When reinstalling the resister,be carefull not to bend it up.If I can be of more help,please let me know....roniecon@gmail.com

2006 Ford Crown Victoria HVAC only blows thru windshield defrost


You have a vacuum leak. Defrost is the default postion(no Vacuum). Start by finding the small black vacuum line near the heater hoses at the fire wall under the hood.Trace it back, it should go to a square black reservoir . Not totally sure exactly where it is located on this model,shop manual doesn't show a very good pic, but it states to remove wiper arm and pivot shaft to remove it. You will see a second line going from here to intake manifold vacuum port. Make sure you don't have a leak there somewhere.

Uncontrolled CPU fan speed


Make sure you have used the proper Fan connection on the motherboard and that you used all the pins in it. Usually it consists of 3 to 4 pins for CPU fans. Does your Fan have 3 pins? If not then it is not compatible for Fan Speeds. Also check your BIOS for Fan adjustments. Hope this helps.
