You said you have two fans right.
if both fans are of same age means the reason for one fan which is running slow may be:
1: faulty piece
2:more accumulation of dust since its near the doors or windows

if the BAD fan is old one and GOOD is new one means
1: wear and tear.
2:accumulation of dust

solution: try lubricating the inner parts please and see what happens. thank you.

    i found this site for celling fan replacement. but they replace only remotes i think. but even then you can try calling them and ask if they can replace the part you need too.
    also if that place dint work out you ask the customer service about the selling locations of the spares. they may guide you at that. customer service numbers are :
    1-877-527-0313

    1-800-749-3267
    You can contact Hampton Bay for replacement parts or exchange the fan at Home Depot for a new one.
    and at last this site will be useful to find your part i hope.
    this site will have info about that fan and some necessary information which you will need for replacement.

I think one of the brushes in the motor may be at fault: not connected properly. Would require taking motor apart and checking

    Im sorry I would like to correct my post. An AC motor does not have brushes but a DC motor does. And it it my understanding that the capacitor is used only to give the motor a startup and has nothing to do with speed. Thank You

    May I add my final assumption: Likely to be the bearings

Sounds to me like the wall switch is faulty, replace with new or to prove that Im right, switch them and see if problem moves to other fan.

    Has got to be fan motor itself, replace fan complete would be the fix. Sorry no magic fix available for you, at least from myself.

    Some info from the web here is link to site





    First, check to see that the fan blades turn freely by hand and coast after being spun. If rotation is in any way stiff, this is a sign of dirty, dry, or gummed bearings, which can slow the motor. Sometimes the bearings can become tight and binding which can also be an issue. See 'oiling'.

    Second, does the fan wobble at all? If for any reason the blade pitch is steeper on one or more blades than the motor is designed for, this will slow the motor. This can often be the cause of warping, or a blade being knocked off balance. This will also cause the fan to wobble or shake. See the section on balancing. You can bend the blades to a shallower pitch if they appear to be too steep, but be extremely careful as blade brackets can break easily.

    Most ceiling fans made in recent years use permanent split capacitor motors, as they are efficient and reliable. However with age capacitors can drift in value. If the blades turn freely and are balanced, the cause of a fan running slowly is almost always a bad capacitor. The capacitor is a small black box or silver cannister with two or more wires attached, and is located inside the switch housing, motor housing, or inside a bell on top of the motor. It should be replaced with a capacitor of equal value, they are marked i.e. 6uf, 4uf, etc. Some fans have capacitors with two or more values, they should be replaced with the equivalent of those values by one or more capacitors. More in the 'capacitor section'.

If the fan is controlled by a
variable resistor or round
switch type control then that's
the problem (like a dimmer switch)
defective switch

Posted on Dec 30, 2007

  • Eugene Merritt Dec 30, 2007

    Then the fan itself is defective
    If it wobbles it could be bearing
    wear causing the armature to
    rub the stator slightly

How is fan speed controlled? Remote, wall switch with pull chains? or both?

Posted on Dec 29, 2007

    Rob Luna Dec 30, 2007

    Without a volt/ohm meter you and all of us are just guessing. Unless this is a very expensive fan, and it sounds like its not, as there is no remote or wall rheostat (dimmer) you may be better off getting a new one. We can suggest a new speed control switch, a foreward/reverse switch and even a start capacitor or motor. But most of this is almost as much work as putting up a new one.

How old is fan, and did you check to see if all screws are tight? If it was working before, then sounds like something happen either losing ground or motor ran hot or over heated. Does it make noises?

My fan only runs on high. No low or medium speeds. The remote shows low, med and high changes but the fan only runs at high.


Check with another same type remote. If same problem, Check PCB. If all speed wires plugged properly? If yes, problem with PCB.Replace it.
Thanks, helpful?

Low and medium fan speed no longer works on our Hampton Bay fan when you pull the chain. The high speed works. Can this be fixed with a repair part?


the speed is controlled by a capacitor bank ... high speed uses no capacitors, low speed uses a small capacitor in series with the motor and medium speed uses a larger capacitor ... the pull chain switch selects which capacitor is used ... so if the capacitors go bad or if the switch fails to select them then you will not have low and medium speed ... so you could have a bad speed capacitor block or a bad switch or wiring that has come loose inside the fan (that connects the capacitors) .. all are replaceable .. i would first remove the covers from the fan and check all wire connections .. check the switch to see if it operates smoothly .. then suspect the capacitor block .. if you were an electrician then you could bypass the switch to test its function but if you are not then make sure power is off while working on the fan .. you should be able to get a new capacitor block from the manufacturer .. most are similar if they will phisically fit in the fan housing and have the same connectors ..

Hampton bay fan model 761 567 running faster on


Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The receiver is located in the upper portion of the housing for the fan motor. Look for a semi-circular black control box (usually manufactured by Rhine)

Most fans have a small rectangular multi-tap capacitor connected to the speed control in the fan. It is likely that this has gone partially bad. The capacitance values are printed on it. Lighting stores and big box hardware stores generally carry replacements.

Altura 68" fans will not operate on high speed.


I jtoo, ust bought The Altura (68" fan from home depot)
Home depot makes hampton bay through various chinese manufacturers.................
The fan ran slow on high speed, and barely ran on medium or low.
home depot gave me a number for their tech department that knew right away.....that the capacitor(s) are defective in many of the Altura fans.
They are sending the capacitors in 3 days to me no charge.
They are located under the fan ( remember the white square plastic plug you had to connect and the 2 wires for the optional light kit?.....)That plug is for the capacitors that everyone is having a problem with.
My guess is they are under rated for a fan that big and are sending better ones to those with problems.
Hope this helps.

Hampton bay fan makes squeeking noise


If the fan is fairly new, remove it and return it to Home Depot. It is almost certainly something that has fallen down into the motor and is rubbing loudly enough to make a squeak as the fan runs faster.

The fan itself has sealed lubrication and you don't have to lubricate it.

Hampton bay fan, wall mount remote control


Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.
