You can get a new balance beam on Ebay for a few pounds just search Air hog. Just check the linkages are ok before you order so you can buy them as well if needed. They are actually called a " Flybar"

Heavy blade vibration while running


Hi,
The blades are out of balance...
You will need to take them off and regrind them to get them balanced...if you sharpen them or even if you hit something like a rock it can knock them out of balance...
Place a small nail through the hole and hold them up...both sides of the blade should hang level...if one side is heavier it will go down and the light side will go up... grind more off of the heavy side...

Tip

VORNADO FAN BROKEN BLADE DONT REPLACE!!!!!


My dog knocked off my vornado which then broke a blade off my favorite fan. I was going to use epoxy to try to get the blade to stick back on. This would not work. The fan spins to fast to use glue. I sat and thought about it for awhile and came up with a solution rather then spending 39.99. I used epoxy to get the blade where it should be and let it dry..... then took a hot nail and poked a hole through each blade close to the center of the shaft.... and then took a zip tie and connected each zip tie to each other forming a ring around the shaft. This works very good and if you need to balance out the fan just place a small zip tie on the center and clip off close to the lock. Now you can use the LOCK as a balance for the fan. GOOD LUCK

2000 Isuzu Rodeo has broken two cooling fan brackets in as many months


i would check into a new cooling fan blade, it is probably warped or out of balance causing the bracket to snap.

My S107 does not hover very well. It moves in a large circle on its own. It isn't the trim as it doesn't spin around the axis of the rotor. It points in the same direction but slowly moves left, back,...


The upper shaft 'T' head has a broken pin in it (the part that holds the blades. You can flip the heli upside down and slightly rotate the blade housing back and forth and IT SHOULDN'T do that. Another way to instantly identify it is dislocate the rotor head links and the upper blade housing should instantly separate) It's made of plastic.

Anyway, It's also called the "T.B.E." Toilet Bowl Effect. It's not 'really' what's taking place, it's move of a cyclic issue but the effect looks like it's swirling in a toilet bowl... You need to replace the inner shaft basically on the upper rotor. They cost anywhere from $4-7.00 bucks. It took me about 2 days of researching and purchasing another one to finally figure it out. There was another website that says the balance bar is it or the gyro has gone bad; this simply isn't true.

Cheers!

My celing fan is wobbling, how do i fix it?


Ceiling fans need to have balanced blades if they are not to wobble. At it's simplest this means that all blades should weigh the same, and they should all be exactly the same shape. But it's not quite as simple as that, as the brackets that each blade is secured to also have to be balanced.

In practice, good quality fans will have the blades carefully balanced by the factory, and on better quality models the blades will be matched to individual mounting brackets in which case there will be markings to identify which bracket goes with which blade (and also to identify where each bracket mounts to the motor).

Cheap fans (almost anything under £130) will not be carefully balanced and so whether they wobble or not is a matter of pot-luck.

To try and cure your fault, first remove and accurately weigh each blade complete with the brackets attached. You can buy strips of self-adhesive balancing lead to add a gram at a time to the upper side of the tip of any blade which is under weight. Note that if any blades are damaged, you must repair the damage before weighing. If any blades are twisted along their length (normally they're simple flat paddles set at identical pitch angles by the way the brackets are shaped) then they must be counter-twisted to match the other blades. Also, check for manufacturer markings to see whether there are any suggestions as to which blade goes with which bracket and whether the brackets are marked to match a particular mounting point on the motor (usually simply by matching coloured paint blobs).

Once you have checked all that you can, see if the wobble remains. If it does you should try swapping the brackets around on the motor: by doing so you'll normally remove the wobble altogether or will considerably reduce it. You might not achieve perfect balance, but you may get to a point where the resonances which cause the wobble offset each other.

A well-balanced fan will not wobble appreciably at any speed, a less well-balanced example might still wobble at some speeds and not others.

I hope that I've helped and that you will take a moment to rate my answer. If there's any part of my reply which is unclear to you then add a comment and I shall try to assist you further when I'm next online.

I just bought the hamption bay littleton, and I know it's cheap, and it's wobbling all of the time. I have seen other littletons not wobbling on high speed. HELP!!!


wobbling means its out of balance .. make sure that all of the blades are properly seated where they bolt down .. if one is sticking up a bit then it will be out of balance .. check the the tips of every blade is the same distance from the ceiling when rotated to a fixed position .. if one is off then its mounting bracket may be bent or mounted wrong .. finally its possible that the blades simply dont weight the same .. i have a strobe light that makes it easy to see which blade is the problem .. but you can just guess by experimenting ... one way is to mark one blade so you always know where your started .. then clip on one of those spring clips normally used to hold groups of papers together ... clip it to one blade (as a weight) and see if it makes it better or worse .. rotate it around each blade until you find the best place .. then move it toward the tip or toward the motor and see if that makes it worse or better .. with a bit of work you can eventually balance the fan nicely .. they make stick on weights to do that job .. in fact there is a fan balancing kit that includes moveable weights as well as stick on weights ... if the fan is new and way out of balance then they will probably give you a new set of blades for it .. when its balanced properly then it should have very little or no wobble ..

The light switch is broken and the fan wobbles like mad at high speed.


The wobbling is most likely caused from the blades being out of balance. This could be from something striking the blades while it was spinning, from an accumulation of dust on the top of the blades or from one of the nuts and bolts used to attach the blades to the brackets falling out. To re-balance them first clean them thoroughly and replace any missing hardware. Then using a step ladder get at eye level with the blades and spin them by hand.You are watching for two things. The first thing is the angle of the blades. The second is the height of the blades. Locate any that are misaligned with the others and mark them with a piece of tape. To realign a blade find a hand hold on the body of the light\fan below the blades with one hand and with the other, grab the blade close to the end attached to the metal bracket and gently bend it back in alignment. You don't have to use a lot of force to bend and\or twist it. Just use trial and error until it looks right. Now turn the fan on and check your progress. It may take a couple tries to get it right.
As for the switch......Are you referring to a broken chain pull or the actual internal switch. If it's the internal switch then it is possible to replace it however it would require the unit to be taken down off the ceiling to get at the interior. A new switch can be purchased at most hardware stores. But you will need to have the old one for comparison.
Hope this helps.
