    You say the fan is mounted on an angled ceiling. Is the fan suspended on a pole that hangs from the ceiling? How long is the pole? Does the fan wobble at low speed as well as high speed?

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.

Wobbles......5 ceiling fans


Several things can cause a ceiling fan to wobble. The most of common of which is loose screws in the fan blade irons , that attach to the fan's motor. Just one loose screw can cause significant wobble and at times, an annoying noise. The other, which is more serious, is that the plastic ball on the top end of the down rod, that attaches to the electrical outlet bracket, is improperly installed. It generally has a groove in it, that must be installed so that it fits over the tang in the bracket. The tang keeps the ball in place. To inspect it, you will need to loosen the screw on the ceiling cowl, so that it slides down the down rod. If the ball is not resting in the bracket properly, lift the fan up by the down rod and put the plastic ball in the proper position. Be sure the wall switch for each fan you work on is turned OFF, before attempting in inspection or repair.

While you're at it, make sure the ceiling/electrical box bracket is tight to the the ceiling and is level,

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the wobbly problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

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!

Casablanca Delta II fan wobbles terribly at high speed. How can this be fixed?


Hello,
Use the fan regulator to adjust the speed of the fan, and if it does not adjust the speed, then you have to replace the fan regulator.
Good luck...

Have a habor breeze ceiling fan need a bracket kit for a ceiling that is more than a 45 degree angle


This is going to be a very difficult bracket to find. However, there is another option available, if you don't mind having a small mounting box at the ceiling electrical box.

Arlington Industries makes a nice ceiling fan universal mounting box that can be used in place of having an extreme angle on the downrod. The other benefit of this method is that the fan isn't prone to wobbling and is more secure.

This might require you to cut the drywall away from the joist to install it correctly, but it will work for almost any ceiling angle around.

They also have some other types, so you can check them out.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Hampton Bay Ceiling fan wobbling


The fan came with one or more clips and some small weights that easily stick to the blade. Now with the clip you put it in one of the blades, starting from the far end and coming inwards, little by little. Try putting the clip in the middle of the fan and turn on the fan and see if it continues wobbling, if it continues wobbling try moving it to left and right and every time turn on the fan and see what happens. When you find the correct spot, there you glue the small weight.

Ceiling fan wobble


try taping a nickle on top of one of the blades start in the middle of the blade (from tip towards motor) then turn it on see if it improves..if not change it to a different blade.. keep trying blades till you notice an improvement. Then fine tune it by moving the penny in towards the motor or out towards the tip. It is a time consuming task but it will work.
