Question about Hunter Low Profile III 20807 Ceiling Fan
Can hear motor humming when on high, but blades turn very slowly. When you push blades, doesn't seem to be bound or hard to turn. Not sure about the exact model. Is a 5 blade fan with a globe light kit
Motors work with magnets. These may be permanent, or more commonly elecromagnets. These are the rotor, and the field magnets. Another type of motor just uses a field magnet and iduces flux in the rotor.
Either way, it sounds like one of the main coil windings has either burnt out or mechanically broken.
If you want to remove it and test the coils with a meter (check resistance of each) this should show the fault.
If a coils burn't out. it's scrap .
