Ceiling Fan Chain Broken Off

Last night, the chain that controls the speed of our Hampton Bay ceiling fan broke off. It broke off inside the 'body' of the fan. We cannot turn off the fan because the chain is the only mechanism controlling the fan. I cannot open the 'body' without turning off the fan. I cannot re-attach the chain without going to the source, which is in the 'body' of the fan. Help!!!
PS --- In this case, the 'body' is the hub of where all the fan leafs spread out from.

You have to kill all power to the fan and start taking it apart till you get to the switch. There's usually just a bottom plate to remove. Sometimes lights. Replace switch and reassemble. If some chain is still connected to the switch you can add chain to it and won't have to replace switch.

The chain controlling the fan speed broke off inside the mechanism. Can it be fixed or am I stuck with the fan on low?


You need to take off the cover and you will see screws holding in the chain and the mechanism. You can go to home depot, lowes, ace and match the mechanism to the one you have and it will have all the speeds.

Fan chain broke and i want to put it back together


If the chain broke from inside the fan you will need a new switch $6 at any home improvement store and if its just the chain links you can buy a another replacement one. Make sure you tell them which switch is broken, fan or light so you get the right one and how many speeds if its the fan

Chain broke off ceiling fan


Is it broken off inside the pull switch? If so, I would recommend replacing the switch. The chain attatchment assembly is riveted onto the electrical part of the switch. It is possible to drill out the rivets to separate the two sides of the assembly to replace the chain, however you would need to use small bolts with nuts to reattatch pieces together after installing new chain. It's a pain in the back side.
(of course all this repair work needs to be completed after removing the fan from its ceiling location and disconnecting the wiring)

Ceiling fan stuck on high.


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.

Ceiling fan


the ball-chain switch is available at just about any electrical parts store
not radio shack, a commercial parts store
they are common to many items
just ask in the store for the switch that you require
on-off-speed control
or direction
when replacing the switch, just replace one matching wire at a time
