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.

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.

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.

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

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, or 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.
.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!

My dog knocked off my vornado which then broke a blade off my favorite fan. I was going to use epoxy to try to get the blade to stick back on. This would not work. The fan spins to fast to use glue. I sat and thought about it for awhile and came up with a solution rather then spending 39.99. I used epoxy to get the blade where it should be and let it dry..... then took a hot nail and poked a hole through each blade close to the center of the shaft.... and then took a zip tie and connected each zip tie to each other forming a ring around the shaft. This works very good and if you need to balance out the fan just place a small zip tie on the center and clip off close to the lock. Now you can use the LOCK as a balance for the fan. GOOD LUCK

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.

I have a kenmore elite bottom freezer refrigerator (trio). When the freezer door is closed a rapid clicking/grinding noise has started. When I open the door, it stops. When I close the light switch at the...

I've heard similar refrigerator noises like yours before. Sounds like the evaporator fan motor, located in the freezer and runs only when the door is closed, is being obstructed, possibly by ice, possibly by some wiring or even a food item. You could have a defrost problem, but you dont mention any refrigerator or freezer temperature problem, so that is likely not it. It is also possible the evaporator fan motor itself is out of balance. If you remove the back wall of the freezer, you will be able to see if there is something obstructing the fan blade, if the motor or shaft is out of balance, when you close the door light switch, check the balance of the shaft, it should not have any wobble at all, in fact, if the fan blade is not attached, you should not be able to tell by looking at the motor shaft if the motor is running or not. Also, just happened to think, if one of the fan blades is even partially broken off, that will cause the motor to be out of balance. But if one of these blades is broken, it was broken by something else, either ice or something, and you may have to find the cause of that, otherwise it may happen again.

How do I remove the fan from an electrolux EGC652 oven

The model no. does not seem correct.but it seems as if the hole in the fan blade which is normally D shaped has worn round.The thread on the shaft is Left handed and you will need to undo by turning clockwise. If you can get a vice grips at the back of the blade to hold the shaft then try again,or you will need to get into the back casing and try jamming the shaft at the motor housing you may need some help.Then if that works you will need to undo the 3 bolts holding the Motor body to the rear casing.The new fan would normally come with new bolts,blade and nut.To tighten fan blade nut use a 10mm socket hold the fan blade and tighten anticlockwise.Hope this is helpful.

Good luck.

Dirt doblers build nests on the inside of the scroud and prevented the fan from turning. Cleaned them off and now the AC virbrates badly. Do u thinig I warped the shaft when I turned it on frozen??

I doubt the shaft is warped, however it is quite likely the fan blades are out of balance due to being bent.

Try taking the fan blade off, and see what it does. If you have no vibration then, replace the fan blade.

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.
