There are only two places to lubricate a ceiling fan, the top and bottom of the armature that goes through the center of the motor. The blades in turn hook to this and rotate with it. The top of the armature, closest to the ceiling, is probably a little difficult to get at. The bottom of the armature is probably easier to get at. To do a complete job of lubricating both ends, the fan must be taken apart and cleaned of old lubricant which is then replaced with new. However, I have found that using a can of WD40 with the red extension nozzle is the best way to do it without taking the fan apart. Spray some WD40 at the lowest part of the armature supported by the motor housing. WD40 is better than oil because it penetrates better and it is less likely to cause a build up of dust and dirt that would cling to the oil.

How do I oil my Hunter fan?

You don't. There's no place to oil ANY ceiling fan, not just the Hunter line. All ceiling fans use sealed ball bearings in the motors. They are lubricated for life. If you're experiencing a squealing noise, it would be best to take it down, pack if up and take it back where you bought it. No ceiling fan should squeal, let alone one as expensive as a Hunter.

Is sewing machine oil the same weight as ceiling fan oil?


First, how old is this fan, and secondly is it exhibiting symptoms of low oil? If it is, just adding oil is not enough, you should change the oil in it, by removing the fan, placing paper towels (lots of them) around the part which the blades attach to and turn the fan over dumping the oil into the paper towels.

If it is not having problems and you just want to top it off, use either the Hunter fan oil, or a product called "Zoom Spout Oiler" Both are a 10wt Turbine oil. I have also used 5w20 engine oil in these fans with no ill effects, but I don't recommend it.

If you have any more concerns, don't hesitate to ask.

Here's the manual to your fan.

I have a hunter ceiling fan (model #20537) which makes noise at low speed. Sounds like ball bearings need oil. Any suggestions?

Check with stores that sold it and see if they will warranty replacement. I think there is a lifetime warranty, thats why you pay the big bucks for the Hunter name.
