On most fans, each blade is held on with 3 screws. Sometimes a rubber grommet is included in the mounting hole. Remove the three screws on each blade, flip the blade over, and reattach by replacing the three screws. Sparky 007

Need a new blade for blade bracket item #33221 Harbor Breeze 52"

Someone commented "Otherwise the fan blades are on upside down." The blades are reversible, with different finishes on each side, there is no way to install the blades "upside down". Not sure what they were trying to say...
I'm a retired electrical contractor that has installed, quite literally, thousands of fans.

Which way does a ceiling fan need to run in winter

Usually most peopledont want drafts on them in winter so making the fan turn with the edge thats turned down then that is the leading edge

IE say you look at the blade from the bottom
next note the blades are tilted you have to determine which way your blades are mounted. The fans may all be the same or some odd ones may be out there.
say looking up at a blade thTAs 12:00 from you
if the edge thats closer to the floor is on the left the fan turns left from 12:00 or Counter-clock wise to make the air blow toward the ceiling away from you. Reverse for cooling so the air blows on you.
This makes the air move upward.
If your ckoser edge is on the opposite side the fan turns opposite..
the edge thats turned down toward you is the direction of travel for winter
In small rooms with larger fan the air may make such a quick change that it feels like it blows on you in either direction.

Hello, I replaced a light fixture on my existing Emerson ceiling fan. The light worked right away but the blades didn't turn. I could hear power going to the motor so I went back into the switch cup and...

Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    I have a model 5BS520C. The light works but when I pull the chain for the fan, I hear the sound of three speeds but the blades do not turn.

    Here some toubleshooting:

    Problem 1. Fan will not start.
    Probable Cause
    1. Fuse or circuit breaker blown.
    2. Loose power line connections to the fan, or loose wire connections in the switch housing.
    3. Reversing switch in neutral position.

    Suggested Remedy
    1. Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers.
    2. Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing.
    3. Make sure reversing switch position is all the way to one side.

    WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

    Problem 2. Fan sounds noisy.
    Probable Cause
    1. Blades not attached to fan.
    2. Loose screws in motor housing.
    3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
    4. Switch housing binding against the blade hub.
    5. Wire connectors inside switch housing rattling.
    6. Screws holding blades to flanges are loose.

    Suggested Remedy
    1. Attach blades to fan before operating.
    2. Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over-tight).
    3. Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan flanges to the motor hub are tight.
    4. Check to make sure that the switch housing does not bind against the blade hub.
    5. Check to make sure wire connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or against the interior wall of the witch housing.
    6. Tighten screws securely.

    WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

    Problem 3. Fan wobbles
    Probable Cause
    1. Setscrew in motor coupling is loose.
    2. Setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly is loose.
    3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
    4. Fan blade flanges not seated properly.
    5. Hanger bracket and/or outlet box is not securely fastened.
    6. Fan blades could be out of balance.

    Suggested Remedy
    1. Tighten the setscrew in the motor coupling.
    2. Tighten the setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly.
    3. Check to be sure screws which attach the fan blade to motor hub are tight.
    4. Check to be sure the fan blade flanges seat firmly and uniformly to the surface of the motor hub. If flanges are seated incorrectly, loosen the flange screws and retighten.
    5. Tighten the hanger bracket screws to the outlet box, and/or secure outlet box.
    6. Interchanging an adjacent (side-by-side) blade pair can redistribute the weight and result in smoother operation.


    Hope helps.

    Can not find directions to reverse fan rotation for summer

    it should be a simple slide switch on the side of the housing that moves up and down to change the direction of rotation of the fan motor and blades. look at the manual that came with the fan to make sure it has this feature but i personally have never seen a fan without one.

    Took of blade new one should iar blow on coil or

    The air must move from the fresh food compartment over the coil into the freezer compartment. The fan blade blows the same way no matter which side faces you. For it to blow the opposite way requires reversing the motor direction, or the pitch of the fan blades.

    Dayton Attic fan running backwards

    First see if the switch has a reverse position. Sometimes you turn the fan assembly in the frame, sometimes you turn the whole frame around. Take the cover off the wiring compartment to see if there are instructions there. Also check on the name plate on the motor, there may be instructions there. Attic fans are usually engineered to blow out.

    Hampton Bay Cessna 04313 Ceiling Fan--reverse

    If there is not a little switch on the side of the non-rotating part (below the blades) then your fan is not reversible.
