A fan is one of the various types of residential furniture that serves to provide additional ventilation. Like television, using a fan in a home is not adrift with various building concepts such as a simple minimalist house. In vintage home decor and Scandinavian home decor, fans always enter the shopping list. As one of the electrical appliances, fans have a very important role. Because Indonesia is a tropical country with temperatures that can get hot. Therefore, fans are used instead of air conditioners to provide additional air in the house.
4 Ways to Fix a Total Dead Fan
The use of electric fans is not as big as electricity for AC. In addition, fans are also available in various prices and various types of brands. Like other electronic items, fans can also be damaged. One of them is the condition when the fan is totally dead. Total die fan can be caused by various reasons. Some of the symptoms of a total dead fan can be:
  1. When the indicator lights look still on but the fan wheels won't rotate.
  2. The vibration of the fan dynamo is not heard.
The total die fan can be started by damage to the fan with the wheels slowing down. This slow rotation can be due to the large amount of stack that has been attached, but is too lazy to clean it. Especially on the rotor shaft or fan axle. Therefore, the fan must also be cleaned regularly using a house cleaning tool. But not only that can cause the fan to die completely. Dead fans must be corrected immediately. But what should you do? The following is how to repair a total dead fan, namely:

Check the cable section
The first way to repair the total die fan is to check the power cable section. From here you need to make sure there are broken parts or not. To check it, you will use a multimeter or AVO meter tool. If the cable is broken, you can replace it with a new one. But if not then proceed to the next stage.

Check the settings button panel

Next is checking the fan speed rotation speed button. This check is also carried out using a multimeter or AVO meter on each cable connection connected to the panel. Usually there will be two to three cables connected to the fan dynamo and one cable from the electric current source. When checking, position the AVO meter switch at the values ​​x1 or x10, then attach the probe to each cable connected to the dynamo alternately. When the needle moves to the right, this means that there is still a connection and the condition of the fan coil is still in good condition.

But if it turns out that it doesn't move at all, then there is damage or broken parts inside the coil. Possibly the broken or broken part can be located on the fuse or thermofuse, or it can also be in the coil wire. If indeed there is no connection created, proceed to the next step.

Dismantling the fan dynamo
If no connection is made, then the next is checking the connection on the panel, because there might be a cable that is cut off on the armature. For that the fan dynamo must be disassembled first, then look for the fuse or thermofuse that might break. Examination is also carried out using a multimeter or AVO meter with a switch on position x1 or x10 and placed on both probes of each leg.

If there is no movement, the thermofuse can be broken or broken. If this is the case then the thermofuse must be replaced with a new one according to the type used in the fan. If the new thermofuse is pointing to the right, then the condition is still functioning properly. After the thermofuse is replaced, the next step is to replace the fan dynamo and close it with bolts.

Check fan capacitors
Then check the fan capacitor section. Because weak or damaged capacitors can cause the fan to spin slowly. The shape of the capacitor is generally a black box that is located behind the armature. To find out whether the capacitor is damaged or cannot be marked with its physical form. Damaged capacitors look bloated, swollen and can sometimes also rupture. If it looks damaged, the capacitor must be replaced with a new one. All of these components must be inspected sequentially when the fan is completely dead. Because the cause of damage to the fan can vary in each case.

So are some tips and tricks from how to repair a dead fan set that you must know and learn. Hopefully useful and good luck
