The most important thing about installing a ceiling fan is to use the proper ceiling box, one that is approved and very firmly fastened to the ceiling joists. If this is not done and the fan is only attached to an existing ceiling box, it may end up being out of balance and wobbling, not to mention being very dangerous.

Fan has broken blades. need to replace blade assembly. Where can I get one?

THEY ARE NOT UNIVERSAL! Is it the blade or blade holder? What make/model of fan do you have? You need to buy a whole set of whatever you need or most likely your fan will wobble.

I just installed a water pump on my 2003 gmc seirra and now the fan wobbles while running

You're going to need to disassemble everything according to the manual - following sequencing and order of operations carefully. Once you've reached the wobbly fan inspect the mounting and installation carefully. 1. Was it seated snugly and correctly into place. 2. Is it tightened adequately to prevent it from coming loose? (Remember: fan mounting bolts are generally reverse threaded to accomodate for fan spin, so righty loosy, lefty tighty this time!) 3. Are there any visible cracks or other damage to the fan, especially around the base or center core where it mounts.....4. finally, remove the fan assembly and inspect the bearing and mounting hardware carefully for damage. 5. Beyond these things, the only thing I can imagine is that you somehow bent/warped the fan housing, causing the fan to spin out of true (or wobbly!)

Good luck!

Can I replace the fan clutch on a 2005 colorado with reg fan blade

Let the vehicle run at approx 2000 rpm (standing still) and check the heatgauge. When the needle gets near the max mark you sould be able to feel the fan blowing air. Switch off the vehicle and feel if the fan is solid or not. You can use a standard blade, will have very small effect on feul consumption and power.

Hi marilynh57....
Try removing the fan blades and putting them into different positions.
This will sometimes solve your wobbling problem as some fan blades are heavier than others and this causes the wobble you experiance.

I was trying to see if I could stop my fan from wobbling. After loosening the 2 phillips screws I twisted the upper housing slightly and the complete fan came loose(except for the wires). I just want to...

The fan wobbles cause you bought a crappy Harbor Breeze or Hampton Bay fan. The fan blades need to be balanced with a fan balance kit that comes in the box. You probably threw it out cause you didn't know what the package of weights was for. Get you a Hunter ceiling fan and you won't have an issue with fan wobble, because their fans have better quality control before leaving the factory. If you installed the fan without adequate bracket support- you best get a pro to help you out cause there is no fan wobble help for stupidity.

Engine is running hot

Check coolant reservoir level, check cooling fan if working, check if no leaks on the water pump...If engine newly installed, chances are drive belts are not installed properly.

4.9 litre noisy, wobbling pulley (between fan and engine)

Turn the motor off and move the pulley by hand, if theres alot of slop in it, change out the water pump.

I just bought a new motor and installed it but now

Centrifugal force.....If you replaced the motor only and not the blades, the blades are likely out of balance or possibly bent. Check for wobble and to see that the shaft is fitting tight inside the blade collar.If there is a bushing on the fan blade or shf itself, check it for play as well
