Question about Heating & Cooling
If this is a pull-chain model, then clicking is often caused by the pull-chains knocking against the fan housing.
If it is not the chain , then the fan is probably out of balance. In that case the problem is with installation. In this case you will need to double check the balance, and some times to reinstall the fan to eliminate the clicking.
If the fan is still shaking a lot once it gets going, it may not be supported well enough. In that case you can use a retrofit brace like this one, available at any hardware store or home center. It slides right into the hole and is very easy to install.
To balance the fan, follow the instructions here.
