Question about Fans
I have two Heritage Lancaster series Ceiling fans and they both need the run capacitor as they are both bad and fans will not run. WHERE CAN I FIND THESE CAPACITORS. What I can read on the old ones is 4.75 MFD+/- 5%, 250V, 70Deg C , Series WS. Brand name appears to be Zhong Xing with a big characture " I" with feet in front of the name. These are rectangular shaped ceramic Capacitors with a tab used for mounting.
Thanks for any help you can give me on this.

Your voltage is probably too low, probably a bad wire or source. Let me know if it worked.

Several possiblities come to mind.
1) Electric motors attract dust and lint; enough can either cause the motor to overheat or just physically clog. Regular vacuuming helps, but you may have to pull it apart to check (de-energize that wiring circuit first).
2. Look for any loose wire connections. If you have a multi-meter, use it to check for continuity between the various wires.
3. Look at the motor for signs of scorching or other physical damage. If the previous two steps don't fix it, you're likely looking for a new/rebuilt motor.
Fixing #1 or #2 are probably within the capabilities of the average homeowner; if #3 is the problem, you probably aren't going to rewind the motor - - you might want to check back here with an update (and feedback?).

I have an Aloha Breeze L-Style 52" Ceiling Fan(Polished Brass), Model # 29079 Bought From Wal-Mart about 1 1/2 years ago and the fan speed switch busted and the capacitor melted. I have a new switch but can't find a new capacitor because I can't read the spec info. Looking for a place to obtain the correct capacitor for this fan so I can make necessary repairs!

SOURCE: Need a replacement capacitor
Voltage rating doesn't matter. 250v or 330v will work.
If this is really a 2 speed original, with the 2.5Amp motor... it will NOT have a capacitor as the motor is a shaded pole unit. The three speed electrically reversible fans, have a capacitor, which can either be in the switch housing/ oil reservoir, or the top of the motor housing, depending on year of manufacture.

The reverse switch on my Hampton Bay ceiling fan didn't work. I cut the 6 wires; 1 white, 1 gray, 2 pink, 2 yellow. Here's what I did. Removed reverse switch. Had 6 wires white, gray, 2 yellow, 2 pink. Connected gray to yellow, connected white to pink and fan runs fine. Is this OK? I do not need to reverse fan. It's been running for 1 hour now with no problems. Don S.
