Question about Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade Fan, Chestnut, Autumn Mist
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.
