Where to repair stand fan?

Recommended Posts

I have a 3 year old Hatari stand fan (830 baht or so) where the fan will not work properly on 1 speed but gets going on 2 although not very well.

 

I have already bought another to replace it but was hoping someone could recommend somewhere where i could take it to be repaired/fixed as otherwise still looks as new?

If you live in village not in town, give some village handy man to fix! Every soi has some guy who can fix that for bottle of Lao Khao. (small one) lol

I see, so from now on we have to check how old a post is, in which forum it is posted, the reputation of the poster (maybe a noob) before we can reply?

You regularly are completely unaware which forum you are  in?

 

OP, I usually tinker with them myself and can get them working, although I have space enough to keep old ones for spare parts. Local Mr Fixit (or break it) might sort  it for 100 baht, or give it to the scrap collector.

I would have asked (and will actually) where the poster is as well.

Because I may know of a shop, but it's on Soi Khao Noi which may be a bit out of the way for someone in Naklua or Jomtien for example. Especially if they are on a scooter carrying one of those big stand up fans.

Which I think can (frikken video pop up) be repaired at this little shop which seems to do a lot of appliance repairs:

It's on Khao Noi, just "down" (West) of Mike Orchid Villa housing estate.

There is a shop at Naklua opposite the post office who has done a couple for me including remote control problems always a good price

I would forget Amorn both occasions I have been there with other electronic devices they can't do it

What area do you live in Pattaya? There are plenty of small repair shops dotted all around. I use one on the dark side that has repaired fans, washing machines, electric motors etc at very cheap prices.

Such fans are technically very simple. With these symptoms, I would think that it's just the capacitor who fails. He is usually welded where wires arrive on the electric engine. You can find replacement everywhere for about 20-30 baht. (by example at Amorn in Tukcom)

You might get a shock from the guy who fixes it, and I don't mean from his bill. 🙂

 

I would have more faith in a new cheap fan out of a factory in China than I would a Thai repair guy.

Yes I have seen a guy in the past doing electrical stuff close to that PO but not been down there for a few years.

I have used a couple of local guys many times without any problems. I'm not going to buy a new washing machine or fan every time there's a problem and just add to the landfill.

Handicapped man shop on 3rd road, right before soi 19 on west side driving north. He can fix pretty much anything electrical at modest fee. Speak English.
