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

How to change a timing belt


I do them all the time. Taking them apart is not a big deal. Putting them back together right is. You need a manual. If the belt/chain broke and you have an interference engine. More times than not the engine is trashed.

HOW DO I FIX A LIGHTING CHAIN THAT BROKE INSIDE THE HOUSING OF THE FAN?


You have to buy a new pull chain, usually two wire. Take light off fan and put new pull chain on as you take the old one off.

Chain on a JInyou E70469 3 speed fan switch broke. need to replace switch


I have this exact Jin-You E70469 switch. Forget a replacement unless you drop about $20 on ebay. Westinghouse replacement switches did *not* work for this type of switch. Here's the solution that worked for me: CUT THE POWER and test before you touch anything electrical. 1) Diagram the wiring configuration of the switch noting where things go---take pictures. 2) Take out the wires that connect to it. Use a paper clip to spread the clips to pop them out. If you have any wires that come out and back in the switch itself, you can leave them attached. 3) See those pins that keep the housing together? Get a drill bit---or Dremel tool---just slightly bigger than the bottom of the pins. You're going to drill off bottom/rolled over part of those pins. Take it easy. LEAVE THE PINS IN. Do not take the pins out. With the bottoms of the pins ground off gone, now take off the nut that's threaded onto where the chain comes out. Now, carefully pry apart the bottom of the housing. Take a picture. Notice the position. Notice the position. Now, pry the little closure carefully just a little and replace the chain. Put the spring back exactly how it was. NOTICE the little finger in the bottom cover where the spring catches to snap it back. Put the bottom housing on. Holding the whole thing together, try the switch. If it doesn't recoil, pry it apart again, and adjust where the spring catches. This part will annoy some of you. Test again. If it pull ans recoils, you've got it. Put the nut on. Put electricians tape around the housing---don't cover any inputs. Re-insert your wires according to what you had. Put back together.

How do you open a wu pin switch. the chain broke & went inside switch


My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!

PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT.


"PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT."

My oh my!
I don't know of any shortcuts, and the working position does not make the operation a pleasurable one. Not in Summertime!

The time I had to repair that, I needed to pull the whole fan down. Once the whole fan was down, the rest was easy!

It's easier that it appears, but mark all the wires connected in the box.
There is USUALLY a steel cable attached to the fan assembly and the box, to prevent the thing accidentally falling on someone's head.

If you don't have a helper, taking the blades off may be a good idea, but don't take my word for that. Putting them back on was no picnic.

FYI. If you don't have any bead-chain handy, a suitable lenght of sash cord is probably the best replacement.

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)

The pull chain came out. how do i fix it?


It's actually a very easy repair. Those pull chain switches are very generic and can be found at home depot or any hardware store for about $3. As far as changing the switch, there should be three screws holding the light fixture to the fan, then one plug will connect the light to the fan. then unscrew the brass cap where the chain broke then cut the wires close to the switch, then there are only 2 wires to wirenut together and there is no incorrect combination to reconnect them.

Broken light switch chain


Open the fixture where the switch is and see if the chain is broke or just needs a connector to put the chain back together. If you can't do this,just take switch to a place that would sell them, hopefully
you have a hardware store,I hate home depot. Cut the 2 wires,
install new switch, connect wires, wrap with elec tape.

well usually all chains have a link that comes off. if you get that to come apart, then you put the chain on the teeth were the teeth come through between the links. then you link back together the two chain links. it might be a little hard though
