Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Ceiling fan Thank you so much for your helpful response - I will get a new fan!  In the meantime, is the high pitched noise representing a danger?  As I said, I turn off the circuit breaker (which turns off everything else on the circuit) but the fan still makes that high pitch noise.  Is there a hazard until I can get it off the ceiling? Thanks again Susan

    The problem was an external issue as I believed Benimur mentioned.  That stuck with me and sure enough was the root of the problem.  Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in response. Electrically, there should be no potential hazard since there would be no more "juice" running through the circuitry.

I believe you have to replace it. Also, if you have to run your fan on high to get any airflow then I would purchase a better fan and not a store brand. Look for a least a 13 degree blade pitch.

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 .

This fan isn't even worth fixing! When you're buying a fan,look for blade pitch or CFM's. Don't buy anything under a 12 degree blade pitch. 14 degree pitch would be better. Remember, you get what you pay for!

Two days ago my hampton bay fan made 4 or 5 popping sounds, sparked and smoked for about 3 seconds. but works perfectly do i clean it, and carrry on or do i have to worry about it?


DO NOT USE THIS FAN. disconnect if possible.

any spark, smoke and popping noises from any electrical items MUST be treated as highly suspect and a possible fire risk, until professionally tested and given the all clear.

it may just be a few bits of dust burning off, but it MUST be checked before you can assume it is safe.
sparks and smoke with a little dust or grease can cause a fire.

i AM trying to frighten you into doing something rapidly, as this could be a serious fire risk, and must be considered dangerous until tested and proven to be safe.
i would not be doing my job responsibly if i did not make this point absolutely clear

Someone helped me install a ceiling fan. I told them that I here a clicking noise still , they said to go back and tighten every screw. I did that but the clicking noise is still their. What are my...

Check that all the blades are aligned when the fan spins. If one blade is higher or lower than the others it throws the fan out of balance and makes a clicking noise. Also check that the pitch on all the blades is the same, this has the same effect. The blades can usually be bent just a bit to correct any misalignment.
