Repairing a Pedestal Fan

I left my fan on high speed next to an open window. I left for work in the evening. Some time during the night my (frayed just enough) curtain slid down and behind the fan. Several strands of thread are wrapped around the shaft. The blades still spin freely by hand, but there is no sound from the motor. Anything that I can do? Short of buying new?

You will have to remove the yarn or string for this to work properly , this will help the function and the air

The motor may be burned out. Remove all the strings and try to run it. If it doesnt work, you will have to get another one.

If your motor is not burned up you can take it apart and remove all the string from inside the motor and put it back together. If this does not work then you'll need to buy a new one.

Here are some general YouTube videos for repairing a pedestal fan:

If the motor didn't burn up (so grateful you did not have a fire if this happened) you may be able to fix it.

If the motor burned out, I would get a new (or new to you) one.
