The chain hanging from the ceiling somehow got in the fan blade and broke the fan blade off.
I went to Home Depot and bought their generic replacement fan blades but they are too short. Yours are a few inches longer and I would prefer to have the correct size on .
Can I purchase one fan blade for my ceiling fan?

You can goto a habitat for humanity store they would have full or seperate blades or heck even a junker fan here with your blades for cheap or a thrift store but if your looking for correct size blades the most reliable place ive been able to order from is true value store

You bought the wrong switch. Just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside(switch). I don't know if you have a bad motor but it is a cheap low-end fan only made for Home Depot!
I'm an electrician and can help you with your question.
Most (if not all ceiling fans) are designed to hang from most ceilings - flat or angled. This is done through the use of a molded plastic ball secured to the downrod of the fan assembly, that will allow the fan to "self-level" in the hanger
A special "hoop like" hanger is secured to the fan rated electrical box that allows the fan to hang straight down - providing that your ceiling isn't at a real freakish angle - all by itself. The only other thing to watch for is the blades. This is especially true if the new fan has larger blades or a shorter downrod than the old fan. Make sure that the fan blades will clear the ceiling (and enything else for that matter) when running. Otherwise, you will need to use a longer downrod to allow the fan to hang a little lower. Make sure it is not too low to prevent it from striking people walking below it.
Review the installation manual and check out the support "hoop" for the electrical box and the downrod with the plastic ball on the end (may require assembly of the ball to the downrod). You can install the support hoop and hang the downrod to make sure you understand how it works without assembling the rest of the fan.
If you have any problems, you should contact Home Depot (Hampton Bay is a Home Depot house brand) for support.
Go to your local Home depot or visit www.homedepot.com . I know they sell ceiling fan blades and arms at My local Home Depot in Ma, but depending on your location you may have to go to their website instead, I can only say...if they sell it in the store, more than likely they will have it on the website.
My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!
Hi ,,, replacement switches for ceiling fan lights can be found at most appliance or building supply stores. Try Home Depot, Ace, Lowes. Make sure that you get the correct switch. With a single lamp you only need an on/off switch.
Hampton bay is owned by home depot and to the best of my knowledge there are no repair centers for hampton bay fans. That bracket can be purchased (or ordered) from home depot. You could try searching "king of fans" online, they manufacture hampton bay fans for home depot.
