How to replace or repair center fan speed pull chain

My fan has three chains. The center one works the fan on, off, and three speeds. The chain broke. I took the bottom bushing and the globe off. I took the knurled brass screw caps off. I could not figure how to get further into the works to see where the chain broke or how to reattach it. All help will be appreciated. Thank you, Shadrack 43

Re: how to replace or repair center fan speed pull chain

The chain goes into the switch and operates a round contact plate. just get a new three speed switch.

Why does my ceiling fan 897 only spin slowly

If it has chain controls, one changes the direction, Clockwise, Counter clockwise. The other one alters the speed in 4 pulls, from OFF, SLOW SPEED, MEDIUM SPEED, FAST SPEED, and back to OFF. If there are three chains, the third turns the light on an off.

Why does do I only get one fan speed, and not three on Model 27185?

The light is only a battery indicator light. Check the capacitor in the switchcup. Small, usually black box with wires going to pull chain switch. Also, the fan has to be set on high at the pull chain for the remote to work correctly.

If the fan has a pull chain then push the Hi button and then pull the chain until it's on high. Then don't pull the chain! If that's not your problem then check the capacitor in the fan.

Hi, is this fan an older fan with the dimmer type control on the fan itself, (and you have a wall speed control in addition to) or is it the later fan with a three speed pull chain control? If the latter, the service rep may have accidentally placed the fan on Medium speed which due to additional capacitance from the speed control board in the switch housing, could cause the symptoms you describe.

Thanks, Brian

P.S. That's an $$$$ fan, glad to see you had it repaired instead of replaced.

Our fan is going in the reverse do we switch it?

mcdevito75 here, Generally, The Fan switch itself is a pull chain type switch on the fan motor itself, this is a fan speed switch, NOW! also generally the reverse fan swtich is another shorter pull chain switch just about an inch away from the Fan Speed switch or the longer pull chain switch on the fan motor. This reverse switch can also be a toggle type or slide type switch but will be close to the fan speed switch on the fan motor itself.

Ceiling fan stuck on low

in order for the remote control to work properly the fan has to be on its highest speed using the pull chain ... after setting the pull chain in the proper position you can tie up the chain or remove it to prevent others from changing the setting .. the remote will control the speed from then on ..

Pulled chain to slow down fan speed. Chain came out of the housing. Yikes. What should I do? Perfetually have the fan running or can I take it apart and fix it?

Turn the fan off at the breaker. Is there any chain still hanging out? If yes, buy new section of chain at hardware store. If no, buy new pull chain switch at hardware and replace.

Fan speed too fast

Is there a light switch control or just straight power to the fan? They do sell "Fan" controll switches just like a regular dimmer, but for a fan. If there is just straight power u would still be able to install a remote that could lessen the speed. Even if it is just pull chains. the remote would have three speeds and if u kept the pull chain on low, maybe the low remote speed could work.

Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade with remote control at wall.

1. Set the remote to run the fan on high.
2. Pull the fan speed chain until the fan reaches high speed.
3. All speeds should work normally now.
The remote is modulating the maximum speed as set by the pull chain.
