Question about Hampton Bay 24750 Huntington III Ceiling Fan

2 Answers

Ceiling fan stuck on high.

3 months ago, I broke the fan chain completly from the ceiling fan in the dining room, leaving it off, causing me to call it broken, and last week, my son sticked the nails in the chain hole using the stick and the fan went on high, and he stopped. My son might be the youngest person who ever fixed ceiling fan. I have on/off switch which control both light and fan.I need help fixing the chain and taking nails out so I can use them. It's annoying in winter for the fan to be stuck on high while the switch controls both fan and light at night time. While eating in winter, I don't the cold air moving and I don't want the room to be dark.

    The electricion fixed the chain and pulled the nail out of the old chain switch. Now I can put it on any 3 speed. I hope I don't break the chain again.

    My daughter kept flattening the tire on my son's bike so he went into her room and took all of the nails and started sticking them in the chain hole. The fan started blowing all of the paper off of the pile and made a huge mess. I had to clean up and I missed the train to the meeting. What a domino effect and I missed a train because of my daughter.

I think he/she means that the wall switch controls both so only need to replace the broken fan switch. The people at the hardware store should be able to match your switch up with a new one.

Make sure you turn off the breaker that powers the fan and light before you take it apart!!

You son is lucky he didn't get shocked or worse....

The fan usually has two holes for separate switch control. See if there is another hole on the opposite side that a switch can be added for separate control. Then go to the hardware store and buy fan switch with pull chain. Ask for help finding them, they have them in the special switch section of lamp parts. Install new switch (es) and wire the one the way it is. Add the new one and take the light or fan wire out from the old switch and put it to the new switch.

Lights won't work on Harbor Breeze ceiling fan


Ceiling fans operated with remote controls, pull chains, and/or wall switches tend to get confused and just fail. You can try disconnecting power at the source and, while pausing briefly, remove batteries from the remote and push all buttons to eliminate the "stuck button" cause. Then, reconnect power and try various combinations of controls until something works or you give up in frustration.

A lot of fans have a clicking noise if they have a chain hanging down and the balance is not perfect and the fan wiggles a little. It will only happen at certain speeds that are "resonant" where the swinging can build up. The pull chain then makes the noise as it hit the case.

How high should we install our chandelier over the table


It depends how high your ceiling is and the size of the chandelier. If your dining room is eight feet tall, hang the chandelier 27 to 36 inches above the table.

Remote does not consistently work


You can include a push chain switch, if theres enough room in the ceiling fan housing. This is a job for a professional electrician or appliance serviceman who is willing to modify an appliance. It will need to be tested for intrinsic safety and the work should carry some sort of warranty since the pull chain modification (if made on the ceiling fan house) will likely void any warranty. Instead, I advise that the pull switch could be intalled elsewhere in the room. However, it still remains a job for a profession electrician who can install the pull switch in parallel with the existing switch.

This would however be able to control all three fans with just one pull switch if you wanted.

Ceiling fan some time not rotating


First note that there are often two switches: one on the wall of the room with the fan and one on the fan itself. If that doesn't solve the problem, there may be an electrical problem and the fan may need service (it could even need lubrication if it is stuck from a long period of non-use). Also note that electrical problems can cause fires, so it may be necessary to get the fan fixed by a competent service person. Hampton Bay is a pretty good brand but nothing lasts forever and most of us tend to use fans for months and months without servicing them.
