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

1 Answer

Fan Hums Our Hampton Bay fan hums. I don't think it is vibration because the hum starts right away before the fan even begins moving very fast. It is a white fan with a remote control. It has rattan blades. It may be model 72566. Not sure - we threw away the box. It has always hummed but we would like to stop it - if possible.

I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan Model BC552. light works, but fan does not. there is vibration (hum) when fan motor is switched on, but fan blades do not move. Blades rotate freely.


Start up capacitor is likely bad. That's the rectangle thing in the bonnet with two wires. If you replace it, replace the on/off switch at three same time.

I have a Hampton Bay Altura ceiling fan with light and remote control. Everything seems to work properly except that the fan will not start turning on its own it just hums. If I help it to begin turning...


sounds like the motor is going bad, you may be able to take it down and take it apart and clean it up. The armature is what usually goes bad, you will need to do some price checking, new motor versus repair bill. Hope this helps Tim

52 inch ceiling fan hampton bay--Humming..... Tightened blades,adjusted fan blades, changed to a new wall switch, blade to ceiling height O.K.... still humms, what can I do??? thank you


Sounds like you have covered all the bases already, but there is the small possibility that it is the housing vibrating. You can remove it and buffer the adjoining parts with electrical tape on the inside (so as to be hidden). Otherwise, you have a fan that hums (many just do). May need to exchange for a known quiet model like a Hunter or Panasonic.

Fan hums when turned on - not when lights are on - only when fan is on - raher loud


On high speeds, they usually do. They have like a vibration sound to them. Have you tried each speed on the fan. With the lights, you're not going to get a humming sound. Only when the fan is on. And yes, usually at the higher speeds (3 speed fan), they do seem pretty loud. I'd have a family member or friend listen and get their feedback before contemplating changing it. Feel free to contact me back with your feedback, and I can help you from there. Good Luck, and I hope this works out for you. - Jim

Model # yg2047b. I had this fan installed in June, worked fine,now it hums..what could the problem be?


If the fan does not spin and the motor hums, you have a stuck rotor. It may be due to bushing/bearing alignment problem or a lubrication problem.
Try to spin the fan blade manually. It should turn freely, otherwise the rotor is stuck. Remove fan blade and put few drops of lubricating oil on the bushings/bearings and manually turn the shaft to free it up. Alignment of shaft and bushings/bearings must be after lubrication is done and the rotor is still stuck. Move the shaft up and down and side to side until it smoothly spin when manually turned.

Hampton Bay 36" Fan Hums but won't turn


The motor has gotten tired now after being on 24/7. With the blades off, it would turn easily but the weight of the blades strain the motor. You could check that there is proper 110 volt current to the motor because anything less will cause that problem too. You can also help the fan start by spinning the blades while it is on. Short of these suggestions, it is time for a new fan.
