I have one of these fans. From here.

It was awesome. The low setting is a higher velocity than the standard box fan puts out. This fan decided to give up the ghost last night. Sob!

Is there a trouble shooting option? An easy fix? I know nothing about wiring. In other instructibles, I find a diagram easier to follow than words in paragraph form. I do know how to remove the cage around the blades.

Can anyone help?

90% of dump fan finds can be resurrected with a shot of WD-40, and I have no idea how many are still going in my house because they got a shot of WD-40 now and then.
I brought this back from the farm where they grow the tiny ads:
