Will a house fan still work if the capacitor is bad?
Asked Aug 10, 2012, 11:30 AM
I have a house fan, cyclone by lasco, and it was very dirty. Normally if I have a fan so dirty I just wash it with the water hose allowing several hours or the rest of the day drying in the sun, and usually it will run without any problem. This time it did not. I was wondering if it could be the capacitor that got wet or the 3 speed switch. If the capacitor is bad will the fan still run with a nudge of the fan or will it not run at all?
