The fan is a tool that is sought when you feel hot and want fresh air. The fan not only makes the air in a room move but also becomes one of the furniture that can't be missed, especially for vintage home decor and Scandinavian home decor. As one of the equipment that requires electricity, the fan has an important role in the house, especially for homes in Indonesia with a tropical climate. You could say the presence of a fan can be a substitute for air conditioning. Electricity usage is not as big as AC, so it is right for people who want to save money.
5 Ways to Repair Fans
5 Ways to Repair Fans
The use of fans that are too often, not infrequently makes the fan problem. One of the many problems with the fan is that the fan is totally dead. This can be overcome by fixing the fans below:

1. Vibration on the Dynamo Fan Lost
A fan that will totally die usually starts with a slow spinning fan wheel. This slow rotation can be caused by the many piles of dust attached, but the owner of the fan is reluctant to clean it. The dust sticks mainly to the shaft rotor or fan fan. For this reason, before you learn how to repair a fan, it's better to avoid damaging the fan by cleaning it often. But if that's not the cause, then you can apply how to fix the fan below:

2. Check the cable section
How to fix the fan first is to check the power cable. In this section you have to make sure whether there are broken cable parts or not. To check this section, you need a multimeter or AVO meter. If the cable is indeed broken, you must immediately replace it with a new one. If not, then you should do further inspection.

3. Check the Settings Button Panel
You should check the fan speed setting button. This check can be carried out using a multimeter or AVO meter on each cable connection connected to the panel. Typically, there are two to three cables connected to a fan dynamo, and one cable from an electric current source.

During the check, make sure you position the AVO meter switch at x1 or x10, then attach the probes to each cable connected to the dynamo alternately. If the needle moves to the right, this can mean that there is still a connection and the condition of the fan coil is still in good condition. However, if it does not move, it is certain that there is damage or broken parts in the coil. The possibility of broken or broken parts can be located on the fuse or thermofuse, or it can also be on the coil wire. If no connection is made, then he continued to the next step.

4. Disassemble the Dynamo Fan
Another way to fix the fan is to check the connection on the panel, because there might be a broken cable in the dynamo section. For that, the fan dynamo must be dismantled first. After that, look for parts of the fuse or thermofuse that might break. This examination is also carried out using a multimeter or AVO meter with the position of the switch x1 or x10 and place it on both probes of each foot.

If no movement is found at all, then this thermofuse can certainly be damaged or broken. If you have this, then the thermofuse must be immediately replaced with a new one. If this new thermofuse is pointing to the right, it means that the condition can still function properly. When you have replaced the thermofuse, the next step is to replace the fan dynamo and close the dynamo with a bolt.

5. Check the Fan Capacitors
Check the fan capacitor section. Therefore, a weak capacitor will only cause the fan to spin slowly. The shape of the capacitor is generally black box. It is located on the back of the dynamo. To find out whether the capacitor is damaged or not, you can see it from the physical form of the capacitor. Capacitors that are not functioning or damaged, it will appear to swell, swell and can also break. If it looks damaged, the capacitor must be immediately replaced with a new capacitor. All components must be examined carefully and in sequence if the fan turns off completely. Because, the cause of the fan is totally dead can vary.

That's how to fix the fan that you should pay attention to. Maybe for those of you who have not repaired the fan before, it will be a little difficult when doing it. You must examine each component carefully.

Of course repairing will save you more than buying a new fan. Especially if it turns out the damage suffered by your fan is not much. For this reason, it never hurts to try to repair a broken fan. How? Are you ready to fix it? Good luck.
