Question about Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade Fan, Chestnut, Autumn Mist
On its own, the fan went into reverse, turning slowly. Now it will work in both directions, but only at a very slow speed. At its highest speed, it MIGHT be turning at what used to be low speed. At low speed, it now takes over 3 seconds to make a revolution. The light works normally. Model AC5540D. Home Depot SKU 420396. Date 1005. Any suggestions?

Just reporting that I called Hampton Bay about the remote not working to reverse the fan. I was told that I needed to have the fan running on low and then press reverse on the remote control. If that doesn't work, customer service told me to press reverse while running the fan on medium. (Some fans are set to reverse on low and others on medium.) Nowhere in the manual is this addressed. I had been pressing reverse with the fan turned off, which seemed to me a logical thing to do. Live and learn.

Slow spinning of the fan might be caused by a low voltage. Is there any way you can measure the voltage, and if the wires are properly connected, check for any loose wiring or rust in between connections. Maybe the breaker that supplies power to the fans has a loose connections inside, try putting a new breaker of same rated current. Check if those three fans are connected to the same breaker. Breaker can go bad from the inside not doing a proper connection and supplying a low voltage, this might be causing the slow spinning of the fan. Second the black box in the space with all the wires is called the capacitor.
