Question about Minka Aire F602-BNCH Gyro? Fan
One of the fans vibrates. Upon close examination of the two fans, the fan that vibrates has uneven spacing between the blade housing and the motor housing.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
With the power OFF, gently spin the working fan blade with your hand; use a wood utensil handle if need be -- you're doing this just Nate,
get your eyes back to where you checked, and saw the uneven gap between the motor head and the fan head. Now, slowly turn the fan head to locate where the fan head is closest to the motor head. gently (use a thin, hard plastic spatula, for example) slip it in just a bit - right under where the gap's the narrowest, or to the sides of that spot, and taking your time, gently leverage the fan head up and SLIGHTLY past parallel -- be gentle, take yer time! Spin the blade head after each "adjustment", checking for parallel, or near-parallel operation ( should be on par with the functional one). It ought to work after just a few minutes of "tweaking".
It ought to work, especially if it USED to work fine (this assumes no outside force acted upon the fan head - meteorite, super-villian, etc)!!
**NOTE: after you've done the above, and it's spinning free, without looking "wrong" (like it's going to fall off!) PUT the GRILL back ON, and set fan to low it should turn normal!
hope this helps!

I don't understand what you mean by "uneven spacing between the blade housing and the motor housing." If physical spacing is the cause, then you should be able to fix it by tweaking the blade housing into a new position or re-mounting it by drilling new mounting holes of your own and using sheet metal screws to secure it.
The fan inside might just be unbalanced though. Try tightening the large brown peg on the back of the fan head, and try tightening any other small screws that you see holding the fan head or cage in place. Heck, maybe even loosen everything, reposition it a little, then re-tighten.
Balancing the individual fan blades would be tricky because they spin at such a high RPM, but it could be done by using a strong epoxy to stick the correct amount of weight on the blades that need it. Figuring how much weight to put on which blades would be the hard part.
