Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. Sussex Fan, Ancient Bronze
I have a Hampton Bay Sussex ceiling fan in my bedroom. I turn the switch on and I can hear the motor turn on but the fan won't turn. All of the lights work fine. It is not even 4 years old and it hasn't been used all that much, mostly in the summers. Does anyone have a solution?
I don't agree with previous assessments. The motor may hum, but if it doesn't spin, it is locked up. Most probably a bearing (there are 2, 1 at each end of armature. probably a 6202Z. Very common bearing for ceiling fans of all makes. You can get them in most major metro areas at a bearing distibutor for 8 - 10 bucks or at ebay for $1.69 - $2.50 per bearing plus tax and including shipping. I just got 2 new ones for a total of $6.62 delivered in 3 days. Depend on how savvy you are with tools etc. It's not rocket science but I can understand that some people don't have a clue. No offense. I'm old and don't understand today's computers all that well. Ceilng fans are analog technology.

Sounds like you have a broken motor bearing cause the armature to not spin correctly even though the motor is spinning. If the Armature is not spinning then the motor will only spin. To be honest with you it would be cheaper to replace the fan then to try and repair it. The price you pay for the parts and for a technician is going to be expensive. If you are capable of doing this yourself you are going to need to take it off the ceiling and take the fins off and then get to the bearing and see if it looks like something you can fix. Then go to Lowes, Home Improvement or local appliance store and find the new bearing. Good luck
