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 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.

There is a humming noise coming from fan no matter what speed it is on. I have run the fan for hours and still humming


The key to a quiet fan is to isolate the motor vibration from all other parts. This occurs, in the majority of fans, in three places: between the motor and the blade brackets, between the blade brackets and the blades, and between the downrod/motor flange and the mounting bracket. Some fans also have vibration-isolating material between the mounting bracket and the ceiling. If your fan makes a noticable humming noise, inspect it for the above mentioned types of vibration-isolating material. With the exception of the rubber flywheel, if your fan is lacking any of the above, they are easy to add and should solve the majority of humming problems. You can always add additional material as rubber washers and spacers are readily available.

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.
