SOURCE: fan blades rub on housing

The fan is not level.
You will have to relevel the fan. One "trick" we use until a fan can be releveled is to stick a wieght on the top side of the blade. You will have to find which blade will weight back to level. Usually the one on the oposite side of the one that rubs. Tape some quarters or fishing weights on the top side and keep adding until it quits.
Once you get a chance to relevel it get yourself a foot long level and loosen the connections and redo the mountings.

SOURCE: kenmore 1106408840 blower assembly noise

The bearings in the hub are worn out. You will need to replace the hub.
I replace a couple of these a month in the field. They made a slight design change to this hub so the new ones last quite a bit longer.
Here is the part to order.


The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Ceiling fan makes noise, rubbing noise?


Ceiling Fans making a Grinding Sound. If it's a grinding your hearing, most likely the ball bearings in the motor are bad. Some ceiling fans have flywheels that attach the blades to the motor. If the flywheel is sagging or has broken, the blade irons might be scraping on the top of the switch cup housing.

Frigidaire dryer blower fan keeps getting stuck.


Since you didn't leave a model number, I will have to give you a generic answer, instead of one with a part number of the most likely replacement part. Normlly the problem you discribe is a result of the blower motor bearing wearing out and letting the fan blades rub against the housing. And since the bearing is internal to the motor, you have to replace the entire motor.

My model 8663RP "B"-Unit Combination


It sounds like the fan blade may be loose on the motor shaft. You can purchase a new motor for this fan online.

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. ed.pfohl@gmail.com


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.

WARNING: FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY TURN OFF POWER AT FUSE BOX OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR FAN!!!

Hope helps.

10'' table saw binding?


Sounds like you lost a spacer that goes behind the first flange against the motor bearing, you could use a lock washer if you bend it flat.
Assemble:

spacer washer,
first flange,
blade,
second flange,
nut.

I think the first flange is rubbing the motor housing.

Motor problem


hi,

I wrote to a person earlier about oiling one, now Im thinking she may be having the same problem you have, I will paste that info at the bottom, but sounds like your fan blade assembly has come loose and/or worked its way back down to the motor, study the fan blade assembly and look for an allen bolt or ring holding the assembly to the shaft, remove the ring or loosen the allen bolt , adjust the fan blade assembly so it doesent bind, oil the motor with regular 10w40 motor oil and dust the fan, these are good little fans and that company has been making those since the40's, also sending user guide link.

Noisey fan


In my case noise was coming from the plastic blade rubbing against the sheet metal housing. I removed the motor and added 2 washers to the mounting screws. The washers acted as spacers and lifted up the motor/blade assembly with respect to the sheet metal housing. The blade no longer rubbed against the housing and the noise stopped.
