You will have to disassemble the unit and remove the switch...cut the power first!  Take the old one to the Depot or Ace and get a matching switch.  Generally, there are only two wires on the switch...if so, it does not matter which wire goes where.  If more, ask for help when you buy it.

How to fix a ceiling fan light fixture?


If the pull chain doesn't make a clicking sound when you pull it, you need a new switch.

Fan pull chain not working.


The switch needs to be replaced. They are available from hardware stores, or big box stores that sell ceiling fans.

Make sure your fan is on high with the pull chain switch. Push the remote Hi button then pull the chain until it's on the high speed, Then DO NOT use the pull chain. Same with light , Push light button on remote then pull chain until it's on then leave the chain alone. If that doesn't do the trick then you probably need a new receiver.

The chain came out when i went to turn it off. now i can't start it.


turn power off to fan, and replace the pull chain switch. you can buy a switch at any hardware store. but take old one to get the right one for your fan. sometimes wal-mart may have one. good-day ! maybe the chain just broke. if this is the case, then just replace the chain if need be.MAKE SURE POWER TO FAN IS OFF WHILE CHANGING SWITCH !

I have a 11 yr old Hampton Bay ceiling fan with light kit. The pull chain to operate the fan broke (evidently inside of the fan) and I cannot figure out how to fix it. Do I have to take off the light...


I'm unfamiliar with your exact model but your description makes it very similar to the "King of Fans" branded models I fitted in my house twenty years ago and have fixed a few times. It might even be that yours are made by the same company as Home Depot source their Hampton Bay range from a variety of manufacturers including KoF.

You are entirely correct that you can access the pull chain once you have removed the lamp assembly. If it's just the chain which has snapped then it's normally straightforward to remove the short piece from the switch and install what's left onto the switch, but if your chain is the typical ball and link type and is more than a few years old then replace it with a new one if you can obtain the right size easily. They're not expensive, and the old one will have wear and tear making another failure highly likely. If either of the switches has failed (the pull switch or the fan direction switch) then they're also usually easy to obtain from any electronics store at low cost or you can contact Home Depot regarding spares, also check here and here. Your total repair cost should therefore be no more than a few £'s, $'s or whatever else you use locally: far cheaper and quicker than fitting a new fan.

I hope that my reply has been of use to you and saves you a lot of time and money. Please take a brief moment to rate my answer.

Ceiling fan stuck on high.


The fan usually has two holes for separate switch control. See if there is another hole on the opposite side that a switch can be added for separate control. Then go to the hardware store and buy fan switch with pull chain. Ask for help finding them, they have them in the special switch section of lamp parts. Install new switch (es) and wire the one the way it is. Add the new one and take the light or fan wire out from the old switch and put it to the new switch.

Ceiling fan pull chain connected but does not click on


There is a pull chain switch inside the fan termination housing. you will have to take the little cover off and remove the switch. it has 2 small screws with wire landed under them. Turn off the power at the breaker before working on the switch. take this little ****** out and put in a new one. you can get them at the Home Depot or equivelant. it don't matter if the new switch is a little bigger but it still has to fit. use some judgement here. wire it in the place of the old one, turn the power back on at the breaker and it should be ready to go. Presto.
