So I have this tall oscillating fan that I use to move the AC air around the house. I either have it blowing into the living room, or down the hall towards my office ( the AC is in the Dining Room).
Well, its been on for a few days, so I shut it off last night. Big mistake. Now its making a horrid grinding noise when I run it. So i took it apart to see what I could do, as I’ve to dismantle and clean cat hair out of this fan before.
First thing I noticed is there’s a piece missing that literally holds the fan blades onto the thing! I have no idea how or where its gone. And I know exactly what the piece looks like, as i’ve dismantled it before so it isn’t like i’ve misplaced it. If i saw it, i’d know what it was!
I have no idea where its gone. I’m also confused as to how it got out from inside the cage around the fan blade, which was properly closed. Maybe I have gremlins….
