SOURCE: hampton bay fan noise

The fan does not need to be oiled. The bearings are what manufacturers described as "permanently-sealed", which means that they're designed such that they don't require oiling. The manufacturers recommend against oiling, and if you really wanted to do it, you'd have to be an expert, because there is some very complex disassembly to be done, which requires specialized tools.


The problem is not related to oil. A lack of oil does not produce a hum. If a fan's bearings are low on oil, the sound generated is a scraping or brushing sound. A hum, on the other hand, is an electrical sound. All fan motors hum to some degree -- the cheap made-in-China ones, like in your Hampton Bay fan, hum more than others. There are some steps you can take to reduce the hum:

* If you are using the fan with a solid-state control (i.e. a dimmer), that will cause the fan to hum. These controls are dangerous when used with fans, and a fire can result. You should have a qualified person remove the switch immediately and replace it with either a regular on/off switch OR a discrete-speed (i.e. 3-speed or 4-speed, rather than variable-dimmer) switch. Specially-designed ceiling fan switches such as this are available at your local Home Depot or Lowes. You could also use a remote-control system.

* If you have a remote control or other speed control system, make sure that the pull-chain speed control on the fan is set to the "high" position (highest speed possible) and left there.

* Make sure that all the screws are tight -- this includes screws which hold up the fan's mounting bracket, hold the blades onto the fan, and hold any applicable glass onto the light kit.

* Even if you don't have a speed control, the motor will still produce an electrical hum -- and the blades, which are physically attached to the motor, serve as mechanical amplifiers -- they take the tiny electrical hum and amplify it just like the big brass funnel speaker on an antique gramophone (record player) takes the tiny vibrations of the needle on the record and amplifies them to a comfortably audible level. High-end fans have a rubber flywheel attached to the motor between the blade holders and the motor unit -- and since rubber doesn't transmit vibrations well, this effectively deadens the sound. Your fan doesn't have one of these, but you can effectively replicate the noise-dampening effect by putting rubber washers between where the blade holders touch the bottom of the motor AND between where the screws which hold the blade holders onto the motor, meet the blade holders themselves. This will completely remove the path along which the sound vibrations can flow to the blades, and thus your hum will stop.

I hope this helps you! If you have any other questions, or need clarification, please ask!

SOURCE: Hampton Bay 52 In. Clarington. How do I reverse the fan?

Try these two: 1) look for a small switch up near the light area on the dark-colored area of the fan. If a switch is there, then simply flip the switch to the other position; 2) if you have a remote control for the fan, the reverse mode may appear on the remote control. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: hampton bay fan makes squeeking noise

If the fan is fairly new, remove it and return it to Home Depot. It is almost certainly something that has fallen down into the motor and is rubbing loudly enough to make a squeak as the fan runs faster.

The fan itself has sealed lubrication and you don't have to lubricate it.

My Hampton Bay ceiling fan has been making a sound - like a clicking noise - during every revolution of the fan, and at each of the 3 different speeds ever since it was installed.

Try a bit of chewing gum on each of the blades separately, it seems to be out of balance.By trying each individually and turning on each time you should find the imbalance.Cheers Michael....Australia

My Hampton Bay Victoria 70 in. French Beige Ceiling Fan has started to sway and make funny noise anything above a level 3

swaying fans are a symptom of out of balance. The blades have to be all at the same height to the ceiling or from the floor . It it was ok before but just started this when the noise started then it may be failing bearing in the fan.
with most fans that means a new one but take it to an appliance shop as it may be repairable.
bearings will be from a bearing supply shop

We bought a Hampton Bay fan model ALTURA 56 inchs. Since a year we have a noise came from the motor. Wath is the best way to fix this situation.Thank you!! Guy

If you are using a dimmer switch get rid of it and get a FAN control. Also, you can check the capacitor to see if it's going bad. Hampton Bay is just a low-end store brand for Home depot. You get what you pay for.

Why is my hampton bay fan making a constant chirping sound even when off

Never heard of a chirping noise in a fan. Did you check the inside of the housing for a bird? That's just a low-end store brand for Home Depot. Take it back!

Does this model fan require oil -- just noticed a little noise coming from the fan - sounds like it needs lubrication!!

Most household fans come with prelubed Bearings that are supposedly lifetime bearings, but a lot of times even these fail.

If you can disassemble this fan you might attempt it, but more than likely you will spend more time than the Fan itself is worth.

The other thing to check is to make sure that the fan Body is not rubbing against the Props anywhere.

Hampton Bay fan has a grinding noise

I have worked on many fans because this fan is ten years old. I want to say that this fan has ball bearings in it. Have you tryed WD-40? If so did it work? Are you able to look inside, through the top of the fan to see if some thing is in its way?
