|Hello Everyone, I recently acquired a Westinghosue Lively Aire and it seemed to be running fine until I left it on for 5 minutes.
It started blowing smoke out. I unplugged it. Today, i tested it again and found the smoke is coming from the stator windings. They are very hot on each side and some electric tape is melted.
Also, right before I touched the fan, and felt high static electricity about to shock me.
The fan still works but I dont want to burn it out fully.
Should I try the red spray varnish? Or are the coils fried and need rewound ?
The ohmmeter seems to jump from 15ohms-60ohms when I apply it across the motor...
Thanks everyone !!
