Tower fan stopped blowing now has no power at all

I have a Comfort Zone CZTC309 Fan and Tower Air Cooler evaporative. Two days ago I felt water spitting out of the front where the fan usually blows cool air. Turned it off. Waited a day turned it back on and no water spitting out. Then it stopped blowing with forced air the fan stooped moving but I felt à very small amout of air whether on low or hi it was very little air. Today it will not power on. I took apart to look and don't see anything but I smelled a burning of sort and the motor was warm. What happened and can j fix it. The motor has nothing to do with the power coming on does it?

Update (06/12/2019)

All filters were clean and free from debris, no calcium build up, hoses free of debris and just actually a clean machine because I keep it clean so it wouldn't go out on me. I did notice there was small amounts of water near the area of the motor? This machine uses water so I assumed it to be normally damp in some areas. Why would this happen and how do they expect a fan to work if it uses water but water can get around mechanical and power components. Don't make sense to me at all.

Evaporative coolers (Swamp Cooler) are great in very dry climates! Not very effective in dense cities, or more humid environments.

A mat which is kept wet in front of a fan that sucks the air across the mat. The moisture pulls the heat out of the air which then is pushed into the house.

They do need a bit of TLC! A common issue is the mat often needs to be replaced ideally at the end of the season and the pan may also need to be cleaned of the mineral build up (calcium, Iron & magnesium being the bigger offenders).

You may need to patch or replace the pan due to freezing cracking it. The other problem is the drippers at the top of the mats can also get clogged as well as the level float and the circulatory motor. And lastly the fan’s can fail.

In your case it sounds like the drippers got clogged and have sprayed water into the fan which is what you felt the water or the float got stuck up and the water level got too high at which point the safety system kicked in.

In any case the motor and the belt/pulleys may need to be replaced. Check to see if the motor and the pulleys are not binding up (bearing seised)

Ok this has a bottom bin plastic that pulls out . There is a hose connected inside the cavity there is a water pump that drops into the bin once the bin is replaced inside with water. The hose goes all the way ti the too where yes there are drippers. The drippers then drip onto an accordion type filter and yes the fan pulls the moisture out for cool air. I have checked everything for clog or kink or hole & all is clear. But I have since then cleaned it all to make sure. But now the dang thing will not power on for me to see if it will work now. The fan did stop turning thus the reason I disassembled to clean fan and make sure motor was clear of debris. It was fine but the motor was hot & I smelled a burning component smell before disassembly. But the power was working & now it is not I don't understand what power had to do with fan not working. I put it all back together the same way it wad & it turned in but after turning it off again because fan still wasn't turning now the power will not work at all.


Make sure you can hand turn the motor (belt) is it tight? If you pull off the belt is the fan loose or tight? Motors do wear out! So it could just need a new motor.

You talk about not having power so if you have a working light and plugged it in to the outlet the motor uses does the light not come on? If that's the case your breaker (fuse) had popped! But before you reset it (or replace the fuse) unplug the motor and just have the light plugged in. That way you know the line is good.

If the light fails to light or the breaker/fuse pops again? You'll need to get an electrician in to fix the circuit.

If the light does stay on, with the wall switch turned off try plugging in the motor again did the motor start up after trying the switch again? Or did the breaker/fuse pop again?


This fan has no belts or pulleys. This is a stand alone tower evaporative air cooler made by comfort zone. It's not a unit or industrial type made out of metal.

Yes, the outlet works with a light plugged into same outlet. The darn thing just had no power at all. It did have power but no longer. The original problem was that it spit water out of an vents it oscillates while it's in and I felt water but I've cleaned the thing and now can't get it to turn back on.

The fan turns when I manually turn it. Nothing is stuck at all. It just won't power on. I checked circuit board and all 2 wires are connected there is no loose wires the lower cord is free of kinks and exposed wired. I don't understand this

Could water have blown the motor and how would this affect the power coming on and lights powering on when plugged in?

Also you were right the drippers were clogged but I have cleared them out also

How do i see if motor has gone out it does not doin the can any longer powet or no power I know that is a fact

Sorry I meant it does not turn the fan which is fact power or no power


At this point I think you'll need to find someone local who can help you trace out the electrical circuit of the unit. From the sounds of it you will need at least a new motor as the water dripping on it has damaged it. I would contact ComportZone to see if they offer parts for your unit.
