Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Control Switch
I appologize in advance for not having absolute, 100% certainty if this will work with your particular model of fan, but it appears that most fans of that style have a threaded globe glass covering. The difficulty most people encounter, is that if the globe is even mildly warm from the fan motor running, it will be near-impossible to grip, much less to turn.
In all related cases I had read about, the solution was to allow about 12 to 24 hours of power to the fan being completely off to allow it to cool, then try turning the globe to unscrew it. Most suggest "clockwise" but I have no way of knowing if they mean clockwise from the perspective of looking up at the globe, or clockwise relative to the fixture itself.
Some also suggest that rubber gloves to improve grip or friction may also help to turn the globe.

Motors work with magnets. These may be permanent, or more commonly elecromagnets. These are the rotor, and the field magnets. Another type of motor just uses a field magnet and iduces flux in the rotor.
Either way, it sounds like one of the main coil windings has either burnt out or mechanically broken.
If you want to remove it and test the coils with a meter (check resistance of each) this should show the fault.
If a coils burn't out. it's scrap .

Start over again!
Make sure that the HANGER BRACKET is properly and securely attached to the ceiling joists.
Then make sure that the HANGER BALL of the fixture is properly seated in the HANGER BRACKET.
Make sure the SUPPORT PIN is properly seated in the grooves in the top of the hanger ball.
Make sure that ALL the BLADES are firmly SECURED with TIGHT screws both at the BLADE ARMS AND at the MOTOR.
Remove the BALANCING WEIGHTS from the blades.
Make sure that the DOWN-ROD is indeed VERTICAL and not BINDING.
Turn on the fan in the SLOW mode and let it operate for a few minutes. Is the "shake and noise" issue still present? If NOT, turn it to 'medium speed and if still no problem turn it to high speed.
However, If the problem is STILL present, turn the fan OFF. Look closely and carefully at the LEVEL of the blades. You should be able to determine if one or more of the blades appears to be out of level. Use the minimum amount of balancing weight on the blades, and not every blade may need a weight. You do not want to contribute to the problem here.
If, after you have gone through all of the steps suggested here, the problem persists, then you have done about all you can do as a consumer to make this fan operate satisfactorily.
DOCUMENT the actions you have taken in an effort to remedy the issue on your own.
At this point load it up and return it to the place you purchased it for replacement or refund.
Good luck. :)

check the wiring connections to 2 light fixtures,sounds like a short between these 2,but I would check each individual lamp.

mcdevito75 here, If the wireing in your home / apartment is old and especially if you have an A/C unit or refrigerator on the same circuit as the celing fan lights may flicker with these other appliances going on. --------------- You can also check the wall switch that turns the fan lights on.
