Could be the switch. More likely to be a speed controler or the windings of the fan motor itself.

Turn all power off, and remove it, then check the switch first, the windings next, and look at the controller 3rd.

We purchased a house that is more than 10 years old. The ceiling fan w/light does not turn on with the wireless remote that is attached to the wall and there is not other switch but this one to turn it on....


You need to know if there is power to the fixture. If there is , then you might need to replace the receiver. It should be under the canopy where the power is connected for the fan.

Fan just quit working one day. Nothing happens when I turn the light switches on and off.


Is it powered thru a light switch? Sometimes those do just quit. You can remove the old switch & replace it. Go to Lowe's/Home Depot, the switch itself is fairly inexpensive (probably less than $5). Remember to turn off the breaker to that room/switch before you do anything. The installation itself is simple - just wire + to + and ground it. Did you notice any kind of noise/smell before it stopped working? If the motor is burnt out - just replace the whole fan (unless you feel like tinkering with breaking it down & finding a replacement motor). Sometimes the lite switch on the fan itself will go out - parts for that can be found at about any larger hardware store, but sometimes that's not an easy repair (depends on what type of lite kit is on the fan). However, if that were the problem -it would not cause the blades not to turn, it would only keep the lights from coming on. Try replacing the light switch that turns the fan on/off first (the one on the wall, not on the fan itself) - hopefully that'll solve it for you. Good Luck.

Hello, I replaced a light fixture on my existing Emerson ceiling fan. The light worked right away but the blades didn't turn. I could hear power going to the motor so I went back into the switch cup and...


Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    Fan won't run at all.


    If you plug it in and turn it on, does it "humm".
    If so, it is getting power. It could be the blades are stuck on something: do they turn by hand?
    The motor could be dirty also, is the blade hard to turn?
    It can be repaired by Vornado, or you can dis-assemble the motor and clean it.

    Hunter Fan problem


    Thge black boxes are capacitors. One is a single and the other is a dual. Evidently the dual runs the two lower speeds and the single run the high speed.

    You can test capacitors for basic operation with an analog voltmeter set to Ohms (Rx1 setting is best) by charging up the capacitor with the leadshooked up in one direction, and then reversing them to watch for the slight jump as the capacitor discharges back into the meter... note that this test only works with an analog meter and it must be set to ohms.

    This is only a basic test for capacitors and will not indicate if it's withing specs, only that it basically works.

    IMO, Hunter is known for having bad capacitors. I've just purchased two fans and already had to swap out the light kits, which contains the capacitors and switches, in one becuse of poor operation and excessive humming noise. since the other fans has the same componenets, other than being a different color, I also thought to try the light kit/capacitor assembly in the fan I've already installed before also installing the second fan.

    Guess what, the other set of electircal components with the capacitors runs the fan slower and hums louder.

    According to Hunter's web site, humming is a sign of poor engineering in ceiling fans (meaning a power hum rather than a hum from loose components) I agree and Lowes is about to get two Hunter fans back as my three cheapo fans that came with my house do not hum and also the one in my old house did not hum and moved more air.

    Even the better capacitor set that I switched out still hums to some degree, so I'm climing Hunter's using **** components, probably becuse their chinese suppliers are screwing them and they're not bothering to keep up the quality control.
