    Is the bracket in the ceiling, that the fan hangs on, is it level?

    A wobbly ceiling fan is a sign of an improperly mounted fan, and this is a very hazardous situation as it can cause the wiring to the fan to short out and start a fire

If your blades are warped or a blade holder is bent a little, then you won't be able to balance the fan. You would need to replace the blades or holders. That is a low-end store brand fan for Home Depot! You get what you pay for.

You still have a blade that is out of balance. mesure each blade from the bottom side end to the celing in one spot. Do this for each blade when you find the one that is closest to the celing then you have to place the wheight on the edge of that blade then spin it to make the right adjustment then seta stick on weight where the temp. weight is at

My Hampton Bay Victoria 70 in. French Beige Ceiling Fan has started to sway and make funny noise anything above a level 3


swaying fans are a symptom of out of balance. The blades have to be all at the same height to the ceiling or from the floor . It it was ok before but just started this when the noise started then it may be failing bearing in the fan.
with most fans that means a new one but take it to an appliance shop as it may be repairable.
bearings will be from a bearing supply shop

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 was trying to see if I could stop my fan from wobbling. After loosening the 2 phillips screws I twisted the upper housing slightly and the complete fan came loose(except for the wires). I just want to...


The fan wobbles cause you bought a crappy Harbor Breeze or Hampton Bay fan. The fan blades need to be balanced with a fan balance kit that comes in the box. You probably threw it out cause you didn't know what the package of weights was for. Get you a Hunter ceiling fan and you won't have an issue with fan wobble, because their fans have better quality control before leaving the factory. If you installed the fan without adequate bracket support- you best get a pro to help you out cause there is no fan wobble help for stupidity.

Wobbles......5 ceiling fans


Several things can cause a ceiling fan to wobble. The most of common of which is loose screws in the fan blade irons , that attach to the fan's motor. Just one loose screw can cause significant wobble and at times, an annoying noise. The other, which is more serious, is that the plastic ball on the top end of the down rod, that attaches to the electrical outlet bracket, is improperly installed. It generally has a groove in it, that must be installed so that it fits over the tang in the bracket. The tang keeps the ball in place. To inspect it, you will need to loosen the screw on the ceiling cowl, so that it slides down the down rod. If the ball is not resting in the bracket properly, lift the fan up by the down rod and put the plastic ball in the proper position. Be sure the wall switch for each fan you work on is turned OFF, before attempting in inspection or repair.

While you're at it, make sure the ceiling/electrical box bracket is tight to the the ceiling and is level,

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the wobbly problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My flush ceiling fan is wobbling and hitting against the ceiling making an awful noise. How do I fix that issue?


The fan blades appear to be out of balance. First, check the screws that hold the fan blade irons to the fan motor. Tighten all that may be loose. If that doesn't solve the problem. the fan hanger bracket behind the ceiling cowl cover may be loose (it's attached with thin screws). In addition, the electrical box, that the hanger is attached to, may have come loose from the ceiling joist. If the electrical box has come loose, the box will need to be reattached to the joist with 1 1/2" long screws.

Hope this helps to solve the problem.

New fan with downrod wobbles when on high speed and low speed. Does not wobble on medium speed. How do I stop the wobble completely?


Measure from the same spot on the ceiling to the outer most tip of each blade (by rotating to the tape). The distance should be the same, if not check fan blade screws for tightness. You might have to bend the fan blade brackets a little to get the same measurements, if the screws are all tight. If all this lokks good, you might to use a balancing kit...just follow the instructions...it's not too bad to do

Ceiling fan wobbling


put a piece of masking tape on each blade and number them.while you're up there check that mounting screws are tight.switch position of blades,i.e. move #1to #3,see if it's better or worse;switch #2 & #4 or#4 &#6 etc. until you find the combination giving you the best 'balance'

Try grasping the fan motor and turning it a little each way. There is a notch in the support bracket and maybe it was knocked hard enough to move out of the notch.
