My 'fixing' escapade.... Hey, When I recently came home to my parents house, I found a fan and an old t.v. that "do not work". I have taken apart the fan, with nothing to show for it. Its one of those stand-up fans... The "switchboard" where the fan settings are looks to be fine, the connections seem to be clean.. The extension cord looks good as well. The "guide" (determines how far the fan goes either way) seems to be fine as well... It doesnt have any electrical parts so that shouldnt be the problem anyway.. The only thing left is the part where the vacuum or whatever is created... Any ideas?? My question about the t.v. is if I can open it up? I heard that t.v.'s can be dangerous, probably due to the capacitors and such.. But this t.v. has been sitting around in the attic for more than a year now... Thanks for any info!
