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 .

My hunter ceiling fan turns very slow


Check your capacitor. If this is an add on remote, set the fan on high with the remote then pull the chain on the fan until you get high speed.

A customer of mine has a very nice Hunter original ceiling fan that she never oiled and now the fan just hums and wont spin. Is it possible to repair after no oil damage is done?


Put some oil in and turn blades by hand to lubricate the bearings. If the motor is frozen, then you would have to take it to a service center or send back to Hunter for repair.

Hunter ceiling fan 22450 no reverse switch manual says there is.


The reverse switch usually is in the lamp housing directly under the motor. With a vaulted ceiling installation, you would need to use a ladder to get access to the switch

Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    Remote control works the light on my Hunter ceiling fan but blades do not move


    Can you hear the motor run even though the blades are not turning? If so, the manifold/flywheel may be bad and perhaps have broken away from the motor shaft.

    Ceiling fan turns slowly


    If you've had it for a few years, the bearings are probably getting bad (dry).
    Always start a fan on high---then go to the speed you want, only the high speed windings will handle start-up.

    There's a rubber circle that is the damper between the blades and the motor shaft that rotates. The circle has spokes connecting the outer ring, which the blades screw into, to the inner ring which attaches to the shaft and holds it. If the spokes break you get the symptoms you describe, motor hums but no rotation, but blades can turn manually if you hand turn them them. If this is the case you need to remove and replace the blade mounting ring/damper. (About 25 bucks online)
