You can add another chaing , buyed from the supplier manufacturer. But if the chain is very shot, you must replace with the switch.
God bless you

Model: 21647 chain is stuck for light


When you say stuck I assume you mean it is stuck in the fan. You have to carefully unwind the fan to release the chain pulling slightly as you unwind.
If the switch itself is broken they are an easy fix from any home repair or electric supply house

How do you open a wu pin switch. the chain broke & went inside switch


My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!

Hunter kitchen fan chain broken off in the fan no way of turning off .. Fan running at high speed therefore we cannot use the light . How do we fix it????


You will have to turn off the power to the box where the fan in mounted, remove the fan, remove and replace the switch. Replacement switch can be purchased at your hardware or electric supply store or sometimes, where fans are sold.

This is no big shakes to repair ... take pictures with your cell phone if you are not sure what wire goes where.

Thanks for allowing me to assist you this morning.

When the fan speed chain adjust breaks off inside the fan housing what can be done to fix it? RG


The solution is not expensive, but it is time consuming, provided you are handy. About the only solution is a new switch. HOWEVER, if you are able to pull any of the chain out, say with needle nose pliers, you may be able to get the end connector from a replacement chain to connect to the broken chain and perhaps work.

Fan chain broke and i want to put it back together


If the chain broke from inside the fan you will need a new switch $6 at any home improvement store and if its just the chain links you can buy a another replacement one. Make sure you tell them which switch is broken, fan or light so you get the right one and how many speeds if its the fan

The pulley chain broke on the light on my ceiling fan and there is no slack to turn the light on or off. Can you please tell me how to fix or replace pulley?


To replace chain switch with a new one (available at a hardware store), first turn off power to the fan. Unscrew the nut on the bottom of the fan which holds the coverplate in place. Find two wires going to the switch, pull them out of the enclosure, take the wire nuts off. Now you can take the old switch out by unscrewing the locking nuts that hold it in place. Put the new switch in by reversing the instructions for removal.
Good Luck.

Ceiling Fan Chain Broken Off


You have to kill all power to the fan and start taking it apart till you get to the switch. There's usually just a bottom plate to remove. Sometimes lights. Replace switch and reassemble. If some chain is still connected to the switch you can add chain to it and won't have to replace switch.

Ceiling fan stuck on high.


The fan usually has two holes for separate switch control. See if there is another hole on the opposite side that a switch can be added for separate control. Then go to the hardware store and buy fan switch with pull chain. Ask for help finding them, they have them in the special switch section of lamp parts. Install new switch (es) and wire the one the way it is. Add the new one and take the light or fan wire out from the old switch and put it to the new switch.

Fan won't turn on, dont know where switch is


I looked up the owners manual for your fan at the following site: http://www.hunterfan.com/search.aspx?search=20763
Click on the pdf file labeled owner's.This manual indicates there should be a pull chain for turning on and off the fan. Maybe the chain has broken off up inside the fan. You can follow the instructions in this manual to take the fan apart and replace the pull chain.
