Re: ceiling fan

Isolate the buzz: 1. completely disconnect it from the mount and have an assistant hold it...turn it on ms 2. if buzz stops, then remount using packaging foam (or wood tile under-layment foam) 3. if buzz, then electric coil for ms is motor

Ceiling fan /light works when it wants

is it the fan and the light or just the light ? if it is just the light you may have a loose wire in ceiling. Or the contacts in fixture are bent . you can fix that really easy by just using a screwdriver.

Lemon chain switch

To get a free switch you will have to take it out and take it back to where you bought it and they will replace it or just take the whole thing back and get a brand new one because of the switch. thats the only way you will get a free switch.

I just purchased and installed a Hampton Bay palm beach 48' ceiling fan (close to ceiling mount)Problem is when turned on I hear an annoying hummmmmmmmmmmm, more of a hum at high speed and it graduates...

You have a rotating dimmer switch on the wall to control speed right? If so, it is the wrong type switch. The missed matched switch will cause the humming. Use a regular on/off switch and control speed with the pull string

My Hunter fan will only switch from high to low speed and won't

if the three speed switch is functioning the middle speed winding is bad.  Either replace the fan or hook up a wall speed control and keep the fan on high.

No middle speed.

Replacing the pull switch (reostat) should have solved your problem. Try going to the internet at and in the Google search box enter "Hampton Bay Fans homepage". If any of these suggestions have been helpfull, please rate my solution. Thanks D. Lange

Ceiling Fan only spins 1 speed

assuming you havent messed about with the wireing it can only be the pull cord switch fault or the motor is on its way out

Hunter Bayport Fan

You need to get the running capacitor replaced then it will work fine and its a very low cost part.

HI speed on my Hampton Bay ceiling Fan.

If you are looking to lower your fan speed, I suggest getting an adjustable wall switch that will limit the current to the settings. I have the same situation, I myself didn't do it but I know it is possible. In my bedroom, I have my ceiling fan wired to a turn knob switch, a dimmer so to speak, that limits the elctrical current, thus slowing the rpm's of the fan blades.
