Laws of Shabbos #150

A fan which is off has no permitted function and therefore cannot be moved on Shabbos. The same would be true for any item which is turned off for Shabbos. Whether it is classified as a utensil with a forbidden use which has certain allowances (in this case, moving it for its place) or is classified as a higher level of Muktzah (machmas gufo – intrinsically muktzah) which cannot be moved at all. In general, we classify it in the latter category but there are exceptional cases.
