The fan blades have to be balanced for it to run smoothly.
This website looks like it's straight from 1995, but the instructions are good and you should be able to rebalance your fan without too much trouble.

    How do you replace the fan blade on the ceiling

    after you obtain a replacement blade, preferably of same size and weight for better balance than a blade of different stats that will make the fan move around like crazy when running, remove the screw the mount it to it's arm. these screw are accessed by getting into a position where you can reach the top side of the blade(the side facing the ceiling) and using a screwdriver to remove the screws. put new blade on replace the screws(you can use the same ones you just removed from it) then turn on the power and enjoy the breeze.

    My fan shakes and wobbles even on low and it also seems to by loose where it mounts to the ceiling. What do I need to do.

    I imagine you have a ceiling fan hanging from the roof?? These fans are mounted on a hook which is loose from the roof. This is to prevent any vibration being transfered to the ceiling itself. Generally, there is a domed cover to hide the hook and associated wiring to the fan at the point of attachment to the ceiling. This dome should have a gap of a couple of millimeters away from the roof. If the fan is vibrating, it can also occur because one of the blades may be loose or dislodged. Try tightening up any screws holding the blades to the motor body or refitting the blades. If this doesnt help, you may need to remove all the blased and weight them seperately. 1 may have "thrown" a balance weight and is now unbalanced. Much like an unbalanced car wheel vibrates. All the blades should weigh the same. I used to fix these by supergluing metal washers to the top side of the lightest blades to make it up the weight of the heaviest. It works but someone may have a better idea...

    52 inch ceiling fan hampton bay--Humming..... Tightened blades,adjusted fan blades, changed to a new wall switch, blade to ceiling height O.K.... still humms, what can I do??? thank you

    Sounds like you have covered all the bases already, but there is the small possibility that it is the housing vibrating. You can remove it and buffer the adjoining parts with electrical tape on the inside (so as to be hidden). Otherwise, you have a fan that hums (many just do). May need to exchange for a known quiet model like a Hunter or Panasonic.

    The fan makes noise and vibrates when it runs


    First off, is this a newly installed fan, or an older unit? These fans use oil for lubrication of the bearings, is the reservoir full of oil? Are the blade brackets which hold the blades to the motor loose? Check those screws and the oil level. Here is the owners manual to your fan

    There is a humming noise coming from fan no matter what speed it is on. I have run the fan for hours and still humming

    The key to a quiet fan is to isolate the motor vibration from all other parts. This occurs, in the majority of fans, in three places: between the motor and the blade brackets, between the blade brackets and the blades, and between the downrod/motor flange and the mounting bracket. Some fans also have vibration-isolating material between the mounting bracket and the ceiling. If your fan makes a noticable humming noise, inspect it for the above mentioned types of vibration-isolating material. With the exception of the rubber flywheel, if your fan is lacking any of the above, they are easy to add and should solve the majority of humming problems. You can always add additional material as rubber washers and spacers are readily available.

    Need website to register hampton bay ceiling fan? Please help.

    You can change the entire appearance of your fan by simply changing the ceiling fan shades. If your ceiling fan is outdated, you can change its look with new shades and even new blades, no need to take it down.
    Replacing the ceiling fan shades is an affordable and practical alternative to purchasing a new ceiling fan. The amount of work in removing the old fan and installing the new one is enough to have you considering replacements of shades and blades as the best answer.
    The Many Styles of Ceiling Fan Shades
    Ceiling fan shades come in a variety of shape and size. With the huge selection, you are sure to find one that is right for you and your décor. In addition to the different sizes and styles, the materials can come in various styles, such as:
    • Smoked Glass
    • Etched Glass
    • Beveled Cut
    • Smooth Surfaced
    • Ridged or Bumped Glass
    There are an endless combination to the ceiling fan shades styles and materials.

    Lost screws to attach fan blades on ceiling fan

    This is not a 'promo' for Home Depot but you will find the screws there that you need.
    You will need 15 screws, with an 'unfinished' appearance, for the attachment of the five blades to the arms, and 10 screws that have a smooth rounded finish to attach the arms to the motor housing. If they do not have it in stock they can order ot for you.
    If you have an electrical fan store in your area you should be able to find the items there as well.
    If you have an old discarded ceiling fan, take the screws out of it and try them on your current fan, they should work.
    Good luck. :)

    Removing ceiling fan blades

    Wait? Why would you want to remove the blade? Are they broken? Is the fan unbalanced? Try cleaning the blade. If the fan still wobbles, try tightening the screws. If the fan still wobbles, Unscrew the blade and unconnect the blade from blade iron. Buy the new blade iron. If the blade is broken, Also buy the new blade.
