Question about Broan-NuTone N-8663RP Combination Light Fan Exhaust Fan
Blower wheel assembly gradually slides down away from nut-push on motor spindle, causing rubbing against motor base and eventual stopping of blower wheel. Solution?
Place the push nut below the blower wheel. Don't bother with the top. The centripetal force tends to push the wheel down. The push nut in this position will prevent this.

This happened on my fan too and the motor burned out from being stalled all the time. Try putting a spring retaining ring (E-ring or similar from someplace like smallparts) of the appropriate size on the shaft below the blower wheel to keep it from sliding down. Nutone should have done this themselves to begin with! (but I guess it helps them sell motors...)

Turn off the circuit breaker supplying power to the ceiling fan. The circuit breaker is in your home electrical box and may control more than just the ceiling fan. Place a stepladder under the Hampton Bay fan.
Remove the light bulbs and light covers from the fixture, if you have a light assembly on your ceiling fan. Remove the screws securing the light assembly housing to the fan with a Phillips screwdriver. Lower the light assembly, and hold it in one hand.
Twist counterclockwise the wire nuts securing the wires for the ceiling fan and light assembly, using your free hand to separate the wires. Lower the light assembly from the fan and set it in a safe place.
Turn the screws securing the fan blades to the unit with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the blades from the fan and set them aside. Find the screws securing the canopy to the ceiling mounting plate. Loosen the screws two complete revolutions. Turn the canopy counterclockwise and unhook it from the screws. Slide the canopy over the fan motor housing and away from the fan.
Ask a helper to hold the fan motor housing if you have a Hampton Bay fan with a down rod. Slide the canopy over the down rod until it rests on top of the motor housing. Disconnect the fan wires from the ceiling wires, twisting the plastic wire caps counterclockwise. Slide the hangar ball, at the top of the down rod, out of the mounting bracket. Slide the canopy over the top of the down rod to remove it from the fan.
