I just bought a new freshy and noticed a buzzing noise on speeds 2,3,4,5. None on high. Could the capacitor be the culprit? Or the speed coil? Motor runs fine as i can see. Im thinking a loose winding is possible. Is it common for the windings in the speed coil to become loose?

I hear that lane shirey. How have you been? I bought the 14 incher off you a few years ago. I actually just bought this one for 100.00. really was just looking for a long pedestal for my 23, as i already have a short one on that. But it turns out that this one works pretty good. Just buzzes on every speed other than high. I want to clean it up and fix it

If it turns out to be the speed coil or cap buzzing i may be in the market for those parts soon

I've had 2 with the same problem.  Spray the speed coil down with electrical insulating varnish and it will go away:up:
