How did you successfully repair it? Your last post said a few drops of oil got it going for a few seconds then it stopped again, what'd you do to fix it?
And you are correct Sceadwian. As a person who is involved on a daily basis with repairs I would however not waste my time on fixing something that is essentially cheap and easily replaceable. Totally different if it was a fan made by General Electric and/or other good vendors at the time and was worth the effort as it has value attached if restored to working condition..tvtech, reviving past threads has nothing to do with 'us people' this is the Internet, things like that happen on ALL forums that are heavily trafficked.
I'm a little surprised you would say something like we're wasting time on this thread. I'm 100% with Mickster, that helping anyone that asks for it if the poster actually appears intersted to do some learning themselves is something every good forum user should do. It's only a waste of time if they refuse to do any work themselves.
The days of 'Make do and mend' are dwindling.We are most definitly a throw away society though.
I'm sorry but that is plain and simply not true.New electronics devices are made to be very difficult, or impossible, to repair on purpose.
