Fan stopped working

We have a fan that is 2 years old and the fan motor stopped working. The light works fine.

We have pulled the chain a few times but no response.

Any suggestions?

Hello,
Sorry to give you the bad news, but the fan motor is the major component of the fan and once they go bad it is costly to just repair the motor or replace it. You would actually save more money by purchasing a brand new fan rather than try and repair the motor on the old one. It could also be a fire hazard if you try and keep running the fan because they heat up rather quickly when electrical current is applied and they do not function properly. So if you have a switch that controls the motor and lights, please make sure that the one the controls the motor is off, but can still be able to use the lights.

If you would not mind please rate my help, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Fan buttons work the light. Light button does nothing. No button causes fan to operate. What's wrong?


If there are pull-chain switches on the fixture, their operation may have caused remote control to fail. Turn off power at the source, pause for a few minutes, and turn on power. Either fan or light control, or both, may work. If not, you will have to figure out which pull-chain operation makes things right again. To avoid future problems, disconnect the pull chains at the link so only the remote controls operation.

Non responsive light or fan


Oh, that fan problem. Just for luck, remove the batteries from the remote and press all of the buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a possibility. Next, go to the source of fan power (breaker or fuse) and turn it off. Do not mess with any switches or pull chains. Turn on the fan power and try the remote. Make note of this procedure because you will have to repeat it whenever you have a power outage or you mess with the switches or pull chains trying to solve the problem

Old fan switch has 4 wires, new one has 3. A Ceiling fan light switch is for the fan, not the light, correct?


You have 2 questions:
1) Pull-chain Switch question:
You need a fan switch with 4 wires.
http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&productId=202191016&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&PID=500871&cm_mmc=CJ-_-500871-_-10368321&cpncode=00-29062147-2&AID=10368321&cj=true&srccode=cii_9324560&locStoreNum=577
Your pull-chain switch has one wire that connects to Hot from wall switch. And then one wire for each of the 3 speeds.
Best way to start is to test the old switch with continuity tester.

Compare results with following image of 3-wire switch for general reference:

2) Ceiling fan pull chain switch is for the fan only.

The ceiling fan do not occilate the light turn on but the other does not work propperly


mcdevito75 here, Both the fan and lights work off the wall switch, for the fan to work there is also a pull chain close to the ceiling on the fan shroud you have to pull that chain to get the fan going and 1--2 more times for various speeds. If by chance the fan is brand new, reove the blades and check for stops in the fan motor, right where the blades hook up, these are in place from the factory and have to be removed for the fan to work, they pull right out.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working


It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

Light not working by pull chain or remote.


I would try removing the remote part. Connect the two main (light & fan) wires direct to your house main. Then if the pull chain works then you just need a new remote unit.
