Could be either or if you installed it yourself I would recheck the wiring.................If that is correct it could be the motor..........

another thing I have seen sometimes is the pull switch doesn't reset, you can try pushing the pull chain inwards and see if you hear a click, if you do, then the switch isn't resetting after its been pulled. I have that problem with 2 ceiling fans myself, and all I gotta do is just push the chain inward and reset the switch.
Do it with the power off, if you want to try, just to be safe, if you hear the click, the pull the chain again and listen for a click, then turn the power on. If that works than it is the switch. If not then it is either the wiring or the motor.

If unsure contact a electrician or a trusted handyman

    I just did some troubleshooting on it. Checked all of my wiring and then the factory plug. There was one black wire connected to nothing so I dug around and found the pull chain assembly was damaged. I unwired the new one and wired my old assembly into the new fan. The fan works now but I can only get it to spin on high speed. Guess ill have to try and rewire a few more connections to it and see if I crossed something. Thanks for the help though.

    no problem

    sounds like the switch may just be single speed switch, (usually a multi speed fan, will have a couple wires coming off the switch each going to a different winding on the motor, for the different speeds, not sure if you noticed anything like that on the old switch................

SOURCE: wiring ceiling fans to wall switch

Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

SOURCE: How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

SOURCE: hampton bay ceiling fan , model # 55295

I had the exact same problem. To solve it, I had a friend hold the area of the fan that the globe screws into. I wore rubber dish gloves to get a good grip and pushed up slightly on the globe as I turned counter-clockwise. My friend held the other part and turned clockwise a little as well. It took a lot of pressure for it to finally come loose and then we just turned it about another 90 degrees and the globe slips right out of the groove.

I couldn't believe how hard this was to do.

I broke a shade on my harbor breeze lighthouse II ceiling fan, will you find the model number so I can order one?


Wrong way round, YOU tell us the model number and type and we tell you where to get the shade. You can see the fan in your house, but we can't. That makes it really difficult for us. Some shades are plain, some are fluted, some have patterns.

All is not lost though. Go here and take your pick. They all sell them including Harbour Breeze themselves..

Why won't my ceiling fan blow air down anymore no matter what direction it turns


sounds very intriguing really, like some body has played the
practical joke of turning the blade assembly upside down.
Just an onservatio. Can the blades be removed and replaced upside down? please let me know what you discover, it sounds very interesting

Do the blades spin freely? If not, something may have fallen into the motor, jamming the blades. That would cause this. Also, make sure there is a good connection at the wire that feeds power to the fan motor (usually black, blue is the light) Good luck.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.
