Question about Hampton Bay 56 In. Florentine IV, Brushed Nickel Fan

1 Answer

My Hawkins 44" fan makes a humming noise when the fan is going. The faster the speed the louder the noise. With light on only , no noise. My assumption is it is electrical. Any advice would be welcomed. Thanks, Todd.

Unless it is really loud, the noise you describe is quite normal. Often, at higher speeds the whooshing of the blades will mask some of the motor sounds. we have found the Hunter fans to run the quietest.

Why is there wobble and a humming noise at certain speeds?

Usually a humming noise ( will get louder the faster you go ) is associated with a worn/bad wheel bearing. If the bearing is worn bad enough, it can also produce a wobble. Have the bearings checked on the side/wheel the problem is coming from

Pull chain hanup on glass light cover

Take the glass off and see if there is a hole in a small plate below the light sockets. The pull chain should go thru this hole first before the glass. I don't know if this has it or not being that it's a low-end store brand fan.

Transmission hums. faster the speed higher and louder the hum. Almost sounds like super swampers. Wheel bearings for sure not the issue.

If the trans hums, the problem is in the trans and will have to come out for repairs. You say its not the wheel bearings, but thats a real common problem, and also the tires can make noises like a wheel bearing. Have a Professional check it out.

2004 Chrysler Crossfire 25,000 mls auto, road hum noise

MOST of the hums after a while come from the diff as the back axle does the driving and almost all its life runs the same way except when going in reverse ,is the rear diff meshing and worn on both the crownwheel and the pinion and the humming gets slightly louder the faster you go and almost goes when almost stopped and this can also be the slight vibration you get so get the diff oil drained and refilled and check if there is any metal in the oil when drained if so thats your problem But it will last for years like that..Let me know how you get on RON

Humming noise

If you are using a dimmer switch to operate the fan instead of a fan speed controller, that is the cause of the humming. If you turn down the speed to the lowest setting and the hum gets louder, then your controller needs to be replaced.
