I thought Lasko was a good brand..

Apparently it's not always a good brand. I bought a small tabletop fan that has two settings. The first few days it was cooling very well, but it stopped that this morning. This morning I heard a sort of clanging sound as if the motor wasn't working properly. I checked the outlet I had it plugged to and it was plugged securely in. I decided to turn it off as I have another fan in here anyway. I've just turned the Lasko fan on again and it seems to be working a bit better but it isn't the same. I can't be bothered to send a cheap fan back to the manufacturer so I hope it will start working well enough soon. This was supposed to be a replacement for the fan I am about to get rid of... Fans do not last as long as they once did.

I have not heard of that manufacturer, but it certainly does not sound very promising.

Apparently it has been around since 1906. I've had fans from them before but they were the bigger box fans. They may be new at making the smaller ones so haven't perfected the motor in it. It seems to be working a bit better, but the motor sound was disconcerting.

@ScribbledAdNauseum This could be caused by some minor obstruction or even due to the fan blades not being balanced very well.

It may just be a glitch with that single fan instead of all of them

It could very well be. It seems to be working better now. At first I thought it could be the house circuitry but when the motor started sounding weird... I hope it keeps working. This was a temporary fan at best anyway, but I do hope it will stay as a backup.
