Try reversing the mounting of each blade so that the droop is upward. These blades should be made of wood which do not ordinarily warp in this fashion. Try the above to see if they will tend to straighten out over some period of time. You might also try running a 'heat gun' over the top of the blades (don't allow the gun to remain in one place or it will scorch the blade finish) after doing the above to accelerate the blade straightening. Blade replacement is a last resort. Hope this helps!

Some of the fan blades on several fans are drooping how to fix? lost light in 2 of them?


What make/model of fan is it? Are they indoor or outdoor? Low end fans are made of cheaper parts, so remember, you get what you pay for. The only way to fix is to get new blades & maybe blade holders.

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!

Need a new blade for blade bracket item #33221 Harbor Breeze 52"


Someone commented "Otherwise the fan blades are on upside down." The blades are reversible, with different finishes on each side, there is no way to install the blades "upside down". Not sure what they were trying to say...
I'm a retired electrical contractor that has installed, quite literally, thousands of fans.

My fan wobbles...how do I fix


switch one blade to another, if that does not work you can measure from the ceiling down to each blade on fan, the blades that are off. you have to remove and shim that blade up or down, put the shim or washer were blades hook on to fan. when the blades are level then it should be ok!! good-luck!

The fan blade came off my attic fan, a Leslie


Slide the fan on the shaft. Rotate the blade so the allen screw is over the flat side of the blade and tighten it down. That's it! Be careful how far you put the fan down the shaft so it won't hit the motor or the fan shroud.

Boot problem


Sounds like your CPU fan may be failing (bearings seizing), and that is either causing the CPU to overheat and shut down, or the fan may be drawing excessive power and causing power droops.

GE Profile Spacemaker keeps asking for time date reset and will not operate


The power to the unit is drooping (when the heavy microwave load kicks in) causing the reset.
Try plugging it into a different outlet (whole different circuit if possible) and if that works then you have a wiring problem to the original outlet.
