Reducing the voltage is what you want to do -- this will effectively reduce the speed, without creating an annoying hum.

That said -- 110v is too low. Start higher. Half the voltage doesn't equal half the speed.

On a ceiling fan with a watt limiter .. should I still have approximately 120 volts at the bulbs if watt limiter is working correctly ?? Or does the watt limiter also reduce voltage ?


It depends on how the limiter works. Watts = volts x amps. Reducing either volts or amps will reduce watts. Best way to answer your question is with a voltmeter. Take a reading in a bulb socket when powered on and watt limiter set to maximum watts. Then take a reading with the watt limiter set at 50% [half].

If you have the old motor some times you can have them rebuilt for about the same price of buying a refurbished or used one.

I got my craftmade ceiling fan about 10 years ago, the fan has now stopped working but the light works, I changed out the switch on the wall that was not the problem sometimes I will turn on the wall...


pretty sure its the 3 speed pull chain switch.$4.50 to $6.00 at home depot or lowes or hardware/elecrtical store.
how 2 replace switch.
1.turn off breaker to fan/fan lights,probably that whole room.
may need extension cord & floor lamp from closest room with electric, so u can see.
2.need 6ft step ladder to get up to fan.look see how to get to fan speed switch. speed switch unscrews from outside but body of switch is inside fan cover.
3. need to take fan off ceiling to replace switch.
4.switch has 4 wires, power feed into switch and 3 selector
wires that go to high speed winding,medium speed winding and low speed winding.
speed selector switch has 4 settings, off, low,medium,high.

about ac circuits , black wire is 120 volts, hot.
white wires are neutral return wire. an ac voltmeter will read 120volts ac with its red and black probes between black,hot and
white,neutral.
white= neutal=ground which is green. If wired properly and polarity was observed, white and green ground wires both connect to the neutral ground buss bar in the circuit breaker panel box and are the same electrical point.

black wires,and the selector handle getting the hot juice into the fan and white returns the used juice to the circuit breaker panel box.
If polarity was observed, you can touch white and ground without getting a shock.
black will jolt or even fry you dead, so make sure the breaker to the fan is off, so that the circuit is de-energized before you touch it.

PLEASE NOTE--- make drawing on paper of what color wires from the fan motor go to what color wires on the selector switch.
If the switch has 4 black wires, you need to put different color electrical tape as a marker, on each wire. or ,to be cheap, you can use white paper,scissors to cut paper,and pencil and write 1,2,3,4 on the paper and tape to the 4 switch wires.

that is: wire # 1 from the switch goes to the black wire from the wall--ac hot
wire #2 from switch goes to yellow fan motor winding,
wire # 3 from switch goes to orange wire from fan motor

wires are specific and NOT interchangeable.

My fan motor is not working totaly


PROBLEM; My fan motor is not working totally!
So, i guess that your fan motor is working partially
because it is not working totally.
Please try to be more vague, if you posibably can be.
You will loose 10 points if you actually give any one an idea of what could be wrong with your fan.---ha-ha! sorry,it just seemed too funny to me.
Sounds like:----option #1------- your fan motor is either not running at proscribed speed (fer instance, high is not high enough or low is too low.) This is usually caused by lack of oil on the fan motor bearings.,easy to oil the bearings & dirt cheap too.
but could be caused by an almost burnt out fan motor.In that casethe Motor is not fixable, & needs 2 -B replaced, but dont bother to. It is cheaper to buy another fan at wal marts.
option #2
that portions of the 2 speed or 3 speed selector switch are not totally making contact.
or --option # 3, one of your motor windings could be burnt open.
So,let me start with --#3-- the worst case senarieo
Diagnostic proceedure for Dr. Fixit
You need to supply 120 volts ac in turn to winding lead #1, then to winding lead #2 and then to winding lead #3----
There are 4 wires on a 3 position fan speed switch.
1 wire for low speed,1 wire for medium speed and 1 wire for high speed. This looks like the letter Y with each leg of the Y
[ around the outside of the Y ] being one speed winding. THe neutral return wire would hook up to the center of the Y and this would give you your 3 circuits, depending on which outside leg
that the speed selector switch selects. lo,med or hi--- the neutral return wire at the center of the Y will compleate the circuit, one winding at a time ,depending on speed selector switch setting, for all 3 speeds.
All 3 speed windings need to work for the fan motor to work totally.
If one speed winding is burnt open, the fan motor will only work partially, 2/3rds ,that is. You can still use the fan by cutting off the lead of the bad speed winding and using the other 2 windings.
If 2 wings are bad and dont run, the fan will still work partially with only 1 speed.
If you have no-- or intermittant contact on your fan speed switch,
you will have to order a new replacement switch. This is assume-ing that all 3 speed windings worked properly at their respective speeds , when you tested them earlier , with the speed selector removed from the circuit for testing of the motor windings to see if they each work with the selector switch out of the circuit
If you know that all 3 speed windings run ok , with the selector switch cut out of the circuit, then you know that the speed selector switch is bad.
Firstly,unplug the fan from the electricity so that your hair does not stand up on end, which would surely be a shocking experience.
secondly,
remove the old speed selector switch, noting down on paper, what color wires go where and put the same color wires from the new switch back in the same place that that color wire of the old switch came off of.
(i know this sounds funny, but it really totally works.)
use electrical tape and/ or wire nuts to make electrical connections, if necessary.
With the new switch installed, the 2 or 3 fan motor speed settings will now totally all work.
most electric fans have steel rotor shafts with bronze bearings.
they "call" them oilite bearings,susposedly because the bronze bushing (it is really a bronze bushing) but called a bearing, is oil impregnanted and susposed to be good for the life of the fan.
that is only true if you expect the life of the fan to be ONLY 18 to 24 months which is the average time that the factory oil lasts.
the oil dries up the longer the fan runs and the shaft makes the bronze bushing begin to heat up due to increased friction and eventually wear the round bronze bushinhg egg shaped.
Try giving your bearings a good healthy squirt of sae 30 wieght oil from a zoom spout-- [pull out straw squeeze bottle refillable oiler.]
I recommend oiling both the front and real fan motor bearings once a month.
This is the most common cause of fan failure.
Because I oil my fans bearings once a month,I still have fans that run from 1940,1950,1960 and 1970. The 1940 GE fan lasted 70 years and is still running strong.
Some newer fans have chinese ball bearings , but the ball bearings also die prematurely from lack of needed oil.
Sometimes, you can pry off the bearing race cover to get oil into the bearing.
a good trick here is to use wd40 if you think you cant get sae 30 into the bearing.
wd40 is a n extreemly light wieght oil that penetrates very well
and gets into places where you think it wont get into .
You can totally wet up a fan motor with either
sae 30 or wd 40 or both without worrying about the electric
motor being harmed by the oil.
the oil,sae 30 or wd 40 wont hurt the motor.
On badly rusted and nearly siezed fan motor bushings , or any electric motor as well, I use first wd40 for penetration and then sae 30 for good long duty lubricatin.
You may have to keep squirting ioil in the motor for 1/2 hour and end up with a puddle of oil under the fan motor, but about 40 % of the time ,you can bring back to life what yo thought was a dead motor. Perserverance is required and faith that you can fix the motor. 40 % of the time you get sucess to one degree or another and 60 % of the time ,its kaput for good.
I got all those fans i mentioned before because other people thought the bearing were seized and shot, and put the fans in the garbage pail where I rescued the fans from.
the bearings were almost siezed but far from shot becaue i got oil in to the shafts and bearings and another 12 to 20 years of life from the fans. However,i do oil them monthly in fan season, which is winter time for me, since I use fans to blow the hot air off of my wood stove.

Seeing as these fans are 220 volts you probably have to use the control that comes with the fan. What make/model of fan is it? Are you in the USA?

I just came from Trinidad and they use 110 volts and I'm now back in my island where they use 240 volts and not knowing too much about this stuff i plugged in my lasko fan using and adapter and the motor...


Unfortunately, probably not. The motor would only be designed to handle 110v, and it would burn up with 240v applied. You can take it apart and inspect it, hoping maybe for a bad switch, but chances are the motor is, as you say, blown. Sorry to have to relay the bad news.

Slow desk fan


The thrust bearing or ball is worn out or missing. When you tilt it, the motor shaft spins freely. When you set it down, the shaft goes to the rear and creates drag on the motor.

Ceiling fan is controlled by dimmer


Yes, if the hot wire going up to the fan is coming off the dimmer, it is reduced voltage and will slow down. There maybe a separate hot from another switch??

A regular dimmer switch will not do what you want.  A variable speed switch similar to a dimmer but made specifically to control motor loads may do what you want.  I think it would have to be installed after the 5-speed controller because the reduced voltage may cause problems for that controller.  Maybe you should just replace the controller with a the variable speed switch.
