Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The site provides technical information to assist users resolve their concerns. Unfortunately, FixYa do not supply replacement parts.

An alternative source of replacement knobs would be an electronics/hobbyist store, even Radio Shack. Here is an example. Perhaps it would be to your advantage on "over the counter" rather than online. Bring along the broken knobs for comparison. What would be important is how the knob fits/mates with the protrusion of the switch. Some knobs require a small screw to lock them into position.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,
Assembling the fan brackets and thermo knob
1) Using the screw, washers, and nuts in the mounting kit bag, attach the large top bracket to the top of the electric fan shroud. 
2) Again, using the screws, washers and nuts provided, attach the bottom aluminum bracket to the bottom of the electric fan shroud.
3) Attach the thermostat control knob provided in the electrical kit bag to the thermostat in the fan shroud.

Hi,

Guess what? A standard dimmer switch will not properly operate a fan motor. In fact, it’s most likely going to damage the fan motor and it could even potentially cause a fire. I’ll admit I even went out and bought a dimmer switch and I sat down to just “make sure” I was doing the right thing when I figured this out.
Standard dimmer switches are designed for the wattage of lights. Fan controls are designed for the amperage of the fan motor. So if you want to control the speed of a ceiling fan make sure you buy a fan speed control that specifically says it works for fans. Fan controls come in quite a few styles. The most common type has been around for quite some time and that is the rotary or dial type. The next most common fan control I found was the toggle that has three pre-set speeds (slow, medium and fast). You can also get a fan control that has a slider control along with a toggle switch.
dimmer+switch.jpgThe type that I want to install is a toggle switch with a small slider switch next to it. I have a feeling I’ll have to order one of these but I’ll check with my electrician tomorrow to find out the scoop. The bottom line is you can’t use a standard dimmer switch to control a ceiling fan. You have to get a fan speed control switch that is specifically designed to operate fan motors.












the short wire leads coming from the switch should be attached to other wires with small wire nuts. Just unscrew the wire nuts, unscrew the finial type cap that holds the switch in place, remove the switch and take it to the store. If your lights are strictly "ON"-"OFF" there should be just two wires from the switch. If your lights are controlled - "One" "TWO" or "THREE" at a time the switch will probably have three wires coming from it.

I have three ceiling fans, whose speeds are regulated by capacitors. What I need is to control all three fans from a single control?


You can buy a 5 amp fan control. If you can find it, a 3 amp would work better. Also, since these fans are low-end, you could even use a 2 amp fan control.

Seeing as these fans are 220 volts you probably have to use the control that comes with the fan. What make/model of fan is it? Are you in the USA?

The motor on my fan seems to be laboring. It won't even start when it is on low speed. Medium speed is slower than it used to be. The fan is about 2 years old. Is there a way to lubricate it or is...


The regulator could be faulty. To check remove the two wires from the regulator and join them. If the fan runs full speed then the regulator is at fault. If not then probably what you think. But fans generally do not need to be lubricated for decades. So, I feel it is the regulator.

Hello .. you should be able to find a replacement for your fan control at any building supply store, a home depot type store. Look or ask for a variable speed fan control. This is slightly different from a normal liight dimmer . You might also look for a replacement knob before replacing the whole switch, or matbe getting a replacement just to replace the knob ..

Casablanca Delta II fan wobbles terribly at high speed. How can this be fixed?


Hello,
Use the fan regulator to adjust the speed of the fan, and if it does not adjust the speed, then you have to replace the fan regulator.
Good luck...

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.
