Where to repair stand fan?

I just don't have any faith in lower paid Thai workmanship, especially when it comes to electricity, and as you know, Thailand is  2 PIN plug country, and I doubt there are any safety devices installed in the main electrical panel box.

How would you have any idea what is in the average foreigners distribution panel?

Suggest you have a read of the electrical forum and possibly educate yourself. A lot of the posters talking about experiences with Safe t Cuts and other kinds of circuit breakers.

 

You have made your view very clear, and that is up to you, but overwhelmingly other respondents seem to disagree. 

 

Thanks to all (others) for the positive recommendations :thumbsup:

I have used him a few times over the years, still here to tell the tale and not aware of him killing anyone else yet. Go for it,

This guy is really good.. Don't know where he has learned his skills, but can fix anything electrical used in house I think. Fixed my water heater control board. Fixed my aircon control board. Fan capacitors even can do myself so sure he can change that.

My advice, leave it for the bin men, they can take it and use it, then go buy a new one.

Yes.

Then by all means, get a cheap fan repaired by cheap and unskilled Thai labor.  Perhaps you will find out if your Safety T Cut switch works.  🙂

Had the authorised repair man from Franke, the maker of our rangehood, tell us a new motor was required at a cost of 8000 baht, took the motor to a local guy who repaired it for 100 baht. Still going strong 2 years later. A lot of these so called authorised repairmen are rip-off merchants. But hey, if whatever fails/breaks and you see the only answer is to buy a new one, do it, and I'll do it my way.

Very true....  same applies to pool pumps and other equipment, which are very expensive. They always suggest you buy a new one, as if they are on commission. Although their own shop may not even handle motor repair.

You just can't stop can you.

With that attitude perhaps you ought to live up to your "handle"..........

Just open it yourself. Disconnect the condensator and go to the electric repair shop. By new one and replace it. Will cost you 20-30 baht.

will almost certainly need soldering...can you pop round with your tool...:whistling:

Nope, you are totally wrong. They are covered with a movable plastic roll, and after you only cut the wires close to the part you change. After that you open up the vires a little bit more and put the right wire in the holes of the new part. Twist the wires and drag the plastic roll over the open cables again.

 

After that you can stop whistle. Pop back in your chair and consider your post as well as how wrong you were. Have a nice day. Just whistle if there is something else you want me to explain for you. I aim to please.

Well you could just twist the wires together and wrap  electrical tape  round the joins.. 😋

but  be careful of the "condensator"   AKA capacitors   they can hold a nasty (potentially lethal) electrical shock   so always short them ( momentarily connect their black and red wires)  out before installing a new one.. 

Amorn do still carry quite a few spare parts for fans  including complete replacement motors for about 300 baht.
