Hello Capt Treb. Turn off the power. Check all the blade and support arm mounting screws for tightness. Stand on a step stole and view the blades from a horzinal plane to check all blades have the same pitch by slowing rotating by hand. You may have to bend the arms a little to aquire an equal on the plane. To locate a weight balance is a shoot & miss with the balance weights. Good luck.

Fan only wobbles on high....recently 'bumped'


Check all your screws especially the set screw at top of fan that goes into rod. Blades could be warped from the water. Ball of fan not set in bracket correctly. When your buying a fan, look for blade pitch.13 degree or better is best. You shouldn't have to use the fan on high unless it's a low-end fan with a low blade pitch. It's costing you more money to run the fan on high. Sorry to get so preachy, I'm a fan dealer .

The fan wobbles cause you bought a crappy Harbor Breeze or Hampton Bay fan. The fan blades need to be balanced with a fan balance kit that comes in the box. You probably threw it out cause you didn't know what the package of weights was for. Get you a Hunter ceiling fan and you won't have an issue with fan wobble, because their fans have better quality control before leaving the factory. If you installed the fan without adequate bracket support- you best get a pro to help you out cause there is no fan wobble help for stupidity.

The blades are out of balance. You need to add weight to the lighter weight blades to is turns smoothly with no wobble.
You can go to Home Depot or other home improvement store and buy a fan balancing kit for around $2. It will have instructions.

Will a smaller blade on a ceiling fan cause problems


Interesting situation.. not many people want to down-size a fan. Anyway, reducing the size of the fan blade shouldn't cause a problem - as long as the pitch or angle of the blade remains the same or is less than the original. Increasing the angle with a smaller blade could actually move MORE air than what the motor was designed to do - resulting in overloading and shortening the motor's life in the best case scenario. Worst case scenario - well, anything for electric devices in a worst case scenario usually involves fire, burns and even death (though not likely to happen).

Prior to starting, make sure all the blades are the same in every way including: length, width, angle and weight. A warped blade can cause wobble, too. Stand on a ladder and spin the fan by hand. Look for a blade that is tipped up or hangs lower than the others. Make adjustments as needed to correct (it may not be possible to correct a warped blade - so be forewarned). If any of the variables listed in the first sentence of this paragraph are different from those of the other blades, wobble and motor noise will result. Neither condition should be allowed to exist longer than absolutely necessary. You can minimize these effects by operating the fan at a slower speed. Generally, the blades should be pretty close in all of these variables - but a wobbly fan indicates an imbalance. Weights placed on fan blades can help correct wobble - but can be tricky to determine which blade is the cause.

Good luck!

My ceiling fan is wobbling and it used to be steady. It appears to be off balance and I don't know how to fix it. Do you have any suggestions


First loosen the canopy cover and make sure that all the mounting screws are securely tightened, and that the fan is connected securely to the mounteing plate.
After tighteneng all that if the fan is still unsteady, completely clean all the blade surfaces. Then using clothes pins , start adding the clothes pips , like 2 or 3 at a time to a blade about 3/4 out from the center. Try adding to each blade until you compensate for some of the wobbling. By trial and error, increase the weight, shift the position of the clothes pins, and change the weight to different blades to get the best performance. Then when you are satisfied with the correction, tape coins to the top of the blade to replace the clothes pins. again with trial and error, ballance the weight to get the best condition.

I just bought the hamption bay littleton, and I know it's cheap, and it's wobbling all of the time. I have seen other littletons not wobbling on high speed. HELP!!!


wobbling means its out of balance .. make sure that all of the blades are properly seated where they bolt down .. if one is sticking up a bit then it will be out of balance .. check the the tips of every blade is the same distance from the ceiling when rotated to a fixed position .. if one is off then its mounting bracket may be bent or mounted wrong .. finally its possible that the blades simply dont weight the same .. i have a strobe light that makes it easy to see which blade is the problem .. but you can just guess by experimenting ... one way is to mark one blade so you always know where your started .. then clip on one of those spring clips normally used to hold groups of papers together ... clip it to one blade (as a weight) and see if it makes it better or worse .. rotate it around each blade until you find the best place .. then move it toward the tip or toward the motor and see if that makes it worse or better .. with a bit of work you can eventually balance the fan nicely .. they make stick on weights to do that job .. in fact there is a fan balancing kit that includes moveable weights as well as stick on weights ... if the fan is new and way out of balance then they will probably give you a new set of blades for it .. when its balanced properly then it should have very little or no wobble ..

TRying to balance ceiling fan but there is only one balance clip that came with the product and it is difficult to fix the wobble


Ballancing a ceiling fan is a trial and error situation. you can use the clip and place it on each blade untill you get the quietest opperation. Then you use the stick on weights and remove the clip. First make sure that the fan is solidly mounted . If the fan is loose , all your adjustment will be useless. You may have to go thru the process of applying the clip and wieghts a couple times to get the fan correctly ballanced

Ceiling fan wobbling


put a piece of masking tape on each blade and number them.while you're up there check that mounting screws are tight.switch position of blades,i.e. move #1to #3,see if it's better or worse;switch #2 & #4 or#4 &#6 etc. until you find the combination giving you the best 'balance'

Cannot stop the ceiling fan from wobbling. Have


you still have a blade that is out of balance. mesure each blade from the bottom side end to the celing in one spot. Do this for each blade when you find the one that is closest to the celing then you have to place the wheight on the edge of that blade then spin it to make the right adjustment then seta stick on weight where the temp. weight is at
