I believe you can buy replacements for those at Lowe's or sometimes you can get them at locally owned hardware stores. It just depends if they sell that brand and model of ceiling fan. If not check the company that makes it they will most definately have replacement parts. Of course they will have to ship it to you but if the fan works good the cost of the replacement and the cost of shipping will be much cheaper than buying a whole new fan.

"Hi, I own a Kenmore 363.50222000. My husband broke the fan blade when cleaning the dust/dirt under the fridge causing a load noise. Can we replace the fan blade ourselves? Is it a simple DIY?


have a look at the centre of the fan but on the reverse side where the motors shaft goes into the centre of the fan for a screw or tightening clip or sir clip if there is one then its pretty simple but sometime the fan is machine pressed which means you will have to take it to an engineering place to have it pressed out hope you come right

How to fix a wobbly ceilng fan


wobbly cieling fan
1. make sure all mounting screws between the fan and the ceiling are tight. There is probably an electrical box mounted in the cieling that the fan is screwed into. I would turn the fan light on and then keep flipping breakers off, on at a time ,to see which breaker turns off the fan light. leave the fan light breaker off and you can unmount the fan from the cieling electrical box. The electrical box may have several holes in it for mounting screws and prehaps there are some holes left empty in the box that you can put more wood screws into to help keep the electrical box more firmly mounted and that may help lessen the wobble.
Its ok to bend the electrical wiring aside to put more screws in. Just be reasonably gentle with the wiring and then bend it back somewhat to where it was before you started. make sure that wiring does not get pinched between the fan and the electrical box and that all wiring resides inside the box.
#2 This is harder to do. you need to balance the blades for the fan ,similar to how a lawnmower blade is balanced after sharpening and before remounting the lawnmower blade on the mower. also kinda like balancing a car tire. I have a lawnmower blade balancing fixture that i bought at the lawnmower shop, but i dont know if there is a fan blade balancing fixture that you could buy from somewheres. Maybe try google.com,bing.com or ask.com and type into the search box fan blade balancer
or fan blade balancing fixture or fan blade balancing jig.
PLEASE read the directions or SPECIFICATIONS before you buy the fan blade balancer, only to find out that it only fits 9 inch diameter fan blades, and your blade is 2 4or 36 inches long.
The balancer may have to fit a certain diameter hole at the center
of the fan blade. When you finally find out which side of the fan blade is heavy, you have to grind , with an electric grinding wheel, some material off the heavy side of the blade so that it is the same wieght as the light side of the blade.
Try to imagine a cone shaped center[like step drills] like the capital letter V ,only up side down, so that the point is up. ON the underside of the inverted V is a needle tiped post that upside down V can pivot in any direction on. The hole in the middle of a lawnmower blade is centered somewheres on the outside of the inverted V, depending on the diameter of the hole in the lawnmower blade. The heavy side of the mower blade will go down and may touch the level asphault or the table top, depending on where you placed the balancing fixture. THen i would grind off metal until the heavy side can up to be level with the light side of the mower blade and it was considered balanced.
an appliance repair parts store may sell fan balancers, but if the would fit your cieling fan, better ask before you waiste your money on something that wont work for what you want.

Try calling up customer service of the manufacturor of your ceiling fan and ask about repair service for your brand fan.
see what repair service has to say, im sure many others have asked them about wobbling fans.
so they should have all the answers down pat.
Two more thoughts.
1.
.MAKE SURE ALL SCREWS THAT HOLD FAN BLADES ON TO THE HUB ARE THERE AND are TIGHT. one loose fan blade mounting screw or one missing fan blade screw will unbalance the whole thing and cause wobble.
2. the fan motor shaft bearing could be worn out or round or even egg shaped. If this is the cause, the motor must be diaassembled and new fan shaft bearings installed or the fan motor must be replaced.

good luck and have fun!

I found my own answer by calling Hunter Fan Technical support. They informed me (even though its not in the manual) I have Hunter Blades called "Easy Lock". I had to remove the Hunter arm and blade away from the ceiling body fan in order to figure how to remove the blade. Once I removed the arm which is attached to the blade; I laid it the blade portion on my lap and then the arm away from my body. Then I picked up the small clip unlocking mechanism toward me and then slide the clip unlocking mechanism toward the left of my body. Then the blade came right out. There are no screws to attach the blade. You just reverse the procedure for to lock the blades back into place.

A couple years ago I bought a Hampton Bay OUTDOOR ceiling fan... and the blade arms started breaking off shortly after the warranty expired....yes the fan "motor" is guaranteed for life but not...


How outside is the fan? The blades should be a plastic type material. They should not break just because of it being outside. Go to the nearest hardware store and tell them you need some exterior fan blades. Screw them in to the metal arms that connect to the fan and make sure you have all exterior and rust proof parts (screws, fan blade arms, etc). Make sure to tighten the screws good. Then screw them into the fan motor, tightly of course. These should not break. If it continues to break after replacing the blades, then it would seem as if someone or something is breaking them. I've been an electrician for 8 years and have never heard of this happening.

How do you replace blades on a 22-540 delta portable planer?


Unplug the machine and crank the head up (open) as far as it will go. Underneath, in the middle of the head there is a bar with two blades on it held in place by a lock bar and six to eight screws. Remove the screws and carefully pull the blade out. The blades are double sided so if you haven't changed the blade before, they can be reversed. Turn the blade around so the sharp edge is out and reinstall it. If both sides are used, install new blades with the blade lock engaged in the channel in the middle of the blade. Make sure to get the screws in tight.

Fan Literally came of AC unit! Please help


Maybe. Shut of power to outsde unit. Remove screws holding the wire shield on top in place. You may need to unhook wires to motor. may or right down where they came from. Turn top upside down after removing fan blade from bottom. Check and make sure blade didn't puncture coil. if the hub is still attached to blade you should be able to slide it back on shaft. try to get it back where screw marked shaft and tighten it back in place . some times it it hard to get screw tight if it is on the motor side but you need it tight. Some times a 1/4 inch extentsion turned backward works . Put a wrench on socket end. If hub is broke off you will need a new blade. Becareful not to bend blade as this will cause it to shake when it runs. If this motor was replace recently the company should fix it for free as it was no tightened correctly.
