Try grasping the fan motor and turning it a little each way. There is a notch in the support bracket and maybe it was knocked hard enough to move out of the notch.

My Hampton Bay Victoria 70 in. French Beige Ceiling Fan has started to sway and make funny noise anything above a level 3


swaying fans are a symptom of out of balance. The blades have to be all at the same height to the ceiling or from the floor . It it was ok before but just started this when the noise started then it may be failing bearing in the fan.
with most fans that means a new one but take it to an appliance shop as it may be repairable.
bearings will be from a bearing supply shop

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.

Hampton Bay Ceiling fan wobbling


The fan came with one or more clips and some small weights that easily stick to the blade. Now with the clip you put it in one of the blades, starting from the far end and coming inwards, little by little. Try putting the clip in the middle of the fan and turn on the fan and see if it continues wobbling, if it continues wobbling try moving it to left and right and every time turn on the fan and see what happens. When you find the correct spot, there you glue the small weight.

Antigua Plus 56" blades brush light bowl & fan wobbles too much.


I learned that your Antigua Plus 56" Ceiling Fan was manufactured by King of Fans, a reputable company out of Florida that offers great customer support for their fans.

King of Fans website is: http://www.kingoffans.com
There are 3 FAQ's to read that can help you there about wobble, the proper size of the down-rod, and the fan hanging straight. Also the fan's description tells you what should be in the product's box. There should have been a balancing kit!

If you do not have your Owner's Guide, you can download it free! At any rate, carefully peruse it and follow the guide instructions, it seems that something has not been properly completed and or parts are missing. If parts are missing call customer service at 1-800-330-3267, and concisely describe the problem. I have found them to be wonderful at their customer service over the years.

Regarding the clearance between the bowl and blades, my first guess is that the blades may be installed either upside down, not pushed in fully, or pushed in too far. Regarding wobble, be sure to check page 9 of the Owner's Guide.

Best of luck! Your fan is gorgeous!

Ceiling fan


Hello Capt Treb. Turn off the power. Check all the blade and support arm mounting screws for tightness. Stand on a step stole and view the blades from a horzinal plane to check all blades have the same pitch by slowing rotating by hand. You may have to bend the arms a little to aquire an equal on the plane. To locate a weight balance is a shoot & miss with the balance weights. Good luck.

Removing ceiling fan blades


Wait? Why would you want to remove the blade? Are they broken? Is the fan unbalanced? Try cleaning the blade. If the fan still wobbles, try tightening the screws. If the fan still wobbles, Unscrew the blade and unconnect the blade from blade iron. Buy the new blade iron. If the blade is broken, Also buy the new blade.
