Question about Hampton Bay Dryers
The wobbling is most likely caused from the blades being out of balance. This could be from something striking the blades while it was spinning, from an accumulation of dust on the top of the blades or from one of the nuts and bolts used to attach the blades to the brackets falling out. To re-balance them first clean them thoroughly and replace any missing hardware. Then using a step ladder get at eye level with the blades and spin them by hand.You are watching for two things. The first thing is the angle of the blades. The second is the height of the blades. Locate any that are misaligned with the others and mark them with a piece of tape. To realign a blade find a hand hold on the body of the light\fan below the blades with one hand and with the other, grab the blade close to the end attached to the metal bracket and gently bend it back in alignment. You don't have to use a lot of force to bend and\or twist it. Just use trial and error until it looks right. Now turn the fan on and check your progress. It may take a couple tries to get it right.
As for the switch......Are you referring to a broken chain pull or the actual internal switch. If it's the internal switch then it is possible to replace it however it would require the unit to be taken down off the ceiling to get at the interior. A new switch can be purchased at most hardware stores. But you will need to have the old one for comparison.
Hope this helps.
