Re: fan problem

The motors and the Squirl cage are sealed..None Servicable. The 2 options are as follows. Replace the Motor in the fan or replace the fan itself.

Note the Fantech FR, FX, FG Series fans have a 5 Year Warranty on them.
If you need a list of distributors in your area just called Fantech at 1-800-565-3548. They are usualy great and reliable for troubleshooting and solving your problem.

Re: fan problem

Hunter originals need oil, go to home depot and get a fan oil kit. you will find a small hole at the to of the motor, where it starts to arch up towards the ceiling, insert oil here, follow instructions with oil.

Re: fan problem

I've had couple of these fans. One worked well, while the other had a problem with the shaft turning. It worked well after I lubricated both sleeve bearings, but they went dry shortly after. Again, the shaft had problems turning. Odd.

Re: fan problem

I had a squeak in the shaft of my table fan. Solved by a squirt of wd40 on the shaft.

Soleus Air FSH-40G fan would not start. The bad seems harder to rotate. what could have gone wrong? How to fix?


First unplug the fan for safety. Next add a couple drops of motor oil on the shaft that turns with the fan blade. Tip the fan blade at about a 45 degree angle when adding the motor oil. Spin the blade by hand at that same angle to allow the motor oil to flow down the shaft, inside where you cannot see the shaft. It should start turning by hand a lot easier now.

Should I lubricate my fan to stop a grinding noise?


Most hunter fan don't require lubrication, if you hear a grinding noise I would check the balance of the fan, if your hearing a grinding, and its not caused by being out of balance, then I would replace fan

How to fix a wobbly ceilng fan


wobbly cieling fan
1. make sure all mounting screws between the fan and the ceiling are tight. There is probably an electrical box mounted in the cieling that the fan is screwed into. I would turn the fan light on and then keep flipping breakers off, on at a time ,to see which breaker turns off the fan light. leave the fan light breaker off and you can unmount the fan from the cieling electrical box. The electrical box may have several holes in it for mounting screws and prehaps there are some holes left empty in the box that you can put more wood screws into to help keep the electrical box more firmly mounted and that may help lessen the wobble.
Its ok to bend the electrical wiring aside to put more screws in. Just be reasonably gentle with the wiring and then bend it back somewhat to where it was before you started. make sure that wiring does not get pinched between the fan and the electrical box and that all wiring resides inside the box.
#2 This is harder to do. you need to balance the blades for the fan ,similar to how a lawnmower blade is balanced after sharpening and before remounting the lawnmower blade on the mower. also kinda like balancing a car tire. I have a lawnmower blade balancing fixture that i bought at the lawnmower shop, but i dont know if there is a fan blade balancing fixture that you could buy from somewheres. Maybe try google.com,bing.com or ask.com and type into the search box fan blade balancer
or fan blade balancing fixture or fan blade balancing jig.
PLEASE read the directions or SPECIFICATIONS before you buy the fan blade balancer, only to find out that it only fits 9 inch diameter fan blades, and your blade is 2 4or 36 inches long.
The balancer may have to fit a certain diameter hole at the center
of the fan blade. When you finally find out which side of the fan blade is heavy, you have to grind , with an electric grinding wheel, some material off the heavy side of the blade so that it is the same wieght as the light side of the blade.
Try to imagine a cone shaped center[like step drills] like the capital letter V ,only up side down, so that the point is up. ON the underside of the inverted V is a needle tiped post that upside down V can pivot in any direction on. The hole in the middle of a lawnmower blade is centered somewheres on the outside of the inverted V, depending on the diameter of the hole in the lawnmower blade. The heavy side of the mower blade will go down and may touch the level asphault or the table top, depending on where you placed the balancing fixture. THen i would grind off metal until the heavy side can up to be level with the light side of the mower blade and it was considered balanced.
an appliance repair parts store may sell fan balancers, but if the would fit your cieling fan, better ask before you waiste your money on something that wont work for what you want.

Try calling up customer service of the manufacturor of your ceiling fan and ask about repair service for your brand fan.
see what repair service has to say, im sure many others have asked them about wobbling fans.
so they should have all the answers down pat.
Two more thoughts.
1.
.MAKE SURE ALL SCREWS THAT HOLD FAN BLADES ON TO THE HUB ARE THERE AND are TIGHT. one loose fan blade mounting screw or one missing fan blade screw will unbalance the whole thing and cause wobble.
2. the fan motor shaft bearing could be worn out or round or even egg shaped. If this is the cause, the motor must be diaassembled and new fan shaft bearings installed or the fan motor must be replaced.

good luck and have fun!

How can i remove the blade on a 10" dayton axial


Most of these have a set screw on the side of the fan that keeps it connected to the shaft. It is usually a hex or allen type screw that is recessed into the fan blade shaft. Once it is loose you should be able to slide the fan off the shaft.

The fan blade can be removed from the shaft. You just need to pop the lock washer off and pry the fan blade. You most likely will not be able to remove the fan blade without damaging the blade. You can buy the replacement fan blades online. The part number is 5901A000. Here is a blog on the entire replacement motor assembly. http://nutoneproducts.typepad.com/nutone-products/2009/08/nutone-0695b000-replacement-bath-fan-motor-for-model-qt80.html

The fan blade came off my attic fan, a Leslie


Slide the fan on the shaft. Rotate the blade so the allen screw is over the flat side of the blade and tighten it down. That's it! Be careful how far you put the fan down the shaft so it won't hit the motor or the fan shroud.

Hello janeknows. The shaft of the fan motor may have a bearing gone bad. Follow these steps to locate problem. #1-turn power off by tripping the breaker, place your fingers on the shaft surrorting the blades & SLOWLY rotate the blades feeling for a catch or bump. A bump felt I suggest replacing the motor. No bump #2- remove the screws holding the cover supporting the control switches. Located among the wiring is a box with 2 or three wires. This is a capacitor. Note the info on the capacitor (1.4mf125v). Contact the fans Mgfr they may send you one for free if not visit your local hardware store and ask. Replace the unit using the wire caps in the unit or snip & strip the wire using new wire caps. Note witch wire went where. Turn power on and test operation.
