Check that all the screws are tight not only the ones that are atached to the blades but the ones that are atached to the motor if that does not work you can go to home depot and ask for a balance kit about 2 bucks

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!

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.

What makes a the gasket around the harmonica balance on a 351 ford modified 400 motor falls off?


are you talking about the rubber gasket that is on the vibration damper (balancer) or the front timimg chain cover seal that goes around harmonic balancer? if its the balancer, the the two piece unit is not balanced and the rubber dampner gasket is worn and as the balancer goes around at 700-4,000 revs per minute it wobbles ever so slightly and pushes out rubber seal or pad.

The blades are out of balance. You need to add weight to the lighter weight blades to is turns smoothly with no wobble.
You can go to Home Depot or other home improvement store and buy a fan balancing kit for around $2. It will have instructions.

My celing fan is wobbling, how do i fix it?


Ceiling fans need to have balanced blades if they are not to wobble. At it's simplest this means that all blades should weigh the same, and they should all be exactly the same shape. But it's not quite as simple as that, as the brackets that each blade is secured to also have to be balanced.

In practice, good quality fans will have the blades carefully balanced by the factory, and on better quality models the blades will be matched to individual mounting brackets in which case there will be markings to identify which bracket goes with which blade (and also to identify where each bracket mounts to the motor).

Cheap fans (almost anything under £130) will not be carefully balanced and so whether they wobble or not is a matter of pot-luck.

To try and cure your fault, first remove and accurately weigh each blade complete with the brackets attached. You can buy strips of self-adhesive balancing lead to add a gram at a time to the upper side of the tip of any blade which is under weight. Note that if any blades are damaged, you must repair the damage before weighing. If any blades are twisted along their length (normally they're simple flat paddles set at identical pitch angles by the way the brackets are shaped) then they must be counter-twisted to match the other blades. Also, check for manufacturer markings to see whether there are any suggestions as to which blade goes with which bracket and whether the brackets are marked to match a particular mounting point on the motor (usually simply by matching coloured paint blobs).

Once you have checked all that you can, see if the wobble remains. If it does you should try swapping the brackets around on the motor: by doing so you'll normally remove the wobble altogether or will considerably reduce it. You might not achieve perfect balance, but you may get to a point where the resonances which cause the wobble offset each other.

A well-balanced fan will not wobble appreciably at any speed, a less well-balanced example might still wobble at some speeds and not others.

I hope that I've helped and that you will take a moment to rate my answer. If there's any part of my reply which is unclear to you then add a comment and I shall try to assist you further when I'm next online.

I just bought the hamption bay littleton, and I know it's cheap, and it's wobbling all of the time. I have seen other littletons not wobbling on high speed. HELP!!!


wobbling means its out of balance .. make sure that all of the blades are properly seated where they bolt down .. if one is sticking up a bit then it will be out of balance .. check the the tips of every blade is the same distance from the ceiling when rotated to a fixed position .. if one is off then its mounting bracket may be bent or mounted wrong .. finally its possible that the blades simply dont weight the same .. i have a strobe light that makes it easy to see which blade is the problem .. but you can just guess by experimenting ... one way is to mark one blade so you always know where your started .. then clip on one of those spring clips normally used to hold groups of papers together ... clip it to one blade (as a weight) and see if it makes it better or worse .. rotate it around each blade until you find the best place .. then move it toward the tip or toward the motor and see if that makes it worse or better .. with a bit of work you can eventually balance the fan nicely .. they make stick on weights to do that job .. in fact there is a fan balancing kit that includes moveable weights as well as stick on weights ... if the fan is new and way out of balance then they will probably give you a new set of blades for it .. when its balanced properly then it should have very little or no wobble ..

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'

Cannot stop the ceiling fan from wobbling. Have


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
