Ceiling Fan only spins 1 speed

My daughter's ceiling fan used to work fine. I tried to put it on today & it is only spinning 1 speed, instead of the 3 it used to have. Any ideas on what may be wrong, or how to fix.

    i have same problem

  • Anonymous Oct 28, 2008

    I have had this same problem and have it now again.

    I replaced the little box inside which appeared to be partly melted.

    I haven't looked this time yet to see what the problem is, but am guessing it is the same thing. I called Hampton Bay the last time and they sent me a new one after going over the problem with tech support. The only problem is you have to have purchased the fan within the last 12 months

Assuming you havent messed about with the wireing it can only be the pull cord switch fault or the motor is on its way out

Why my selling fan does not spin faster?

It is a speed switch issue you will need an electrician to come in and repair or replace the switch for your ceiling fan as I had the exact same issue last summer with my ceiling fans. I hope this helps.

Our ceiling fan lights are blinking. There are 3 bulbs that have always worked fine until yesterday when they all 3 started blinking in unison.

sounds like you have a lose wire, pull the light housing and check the connections. If all is good, drop the unit, and check the connections in the ceiling. You have a short in the power , and is showing you when the fan is spinning. I would not use light or fan till fixed.

Ceiling fan will not spin fast

in england the usual house current is 220 volts and here the current is 120volts. this explains the problem. unless there is a switch to change your fan to a 110 current built in it might make sense to buy a new fan and move on. rewiring it would be expensive and unless it has alot of sentimental value probably not worth it.

The reverse switch on my Hampton Bay ceiling fan didn't work. I cut the 6 wires; 1 white, 1 gray, 2 pink, 2 yellow. Here's what I did. Removed reverse switch.

New Hampton Bay ceiling fans spin too slow

Slow spinning of the fan might be caused by a low voltage. Is there any way you can measure the voltage, and if the wires are properly connected, check for any loose wiring or rust in between connections. Maybe the breaker that supplies power to the fans has a loose connections inside, try putting a new breaker of same rated current. Check if those three fans are connected to the same breaker. Breaker can go bad from the inside not doing a proper connection and supplying a low voltage, this might be causing the slow spinning of the fan. Second the black box in the space with all the wires is called the capacitor.

Unable to reverse Thomasville ceiling fan rotation w/remote

I e-mailed Thomasville Lighting after my original post but did not get a reply. I then searched and found a similar problem on this site ( and read the Best Solution which mentioned running the fan at medium speed (not low), then pressing the Reverse Direction worked. As stated in the original suggestion, this was very counterintuitive and not documented in the manual.

Hampton Bay Sussex ceiling fan motor turns on but fan won't turn

I don't agree with previous assessments. The motor may hum, but if it doesn't spin, it is locked up. Most probably a bearing (there are 2, 1 at each end of armature. probably a 6202Z. Very common bearing for ceiling fans of all makes. You can get them in most major metro areas at a bearing distibutor for 8 - 10 bucks or at ebay for $1.69 - $2.50 per bearing plus tax and including shipping. I just got 2 new ones for a total of $6.62 delivered in 3 days. Depend on how savvy you are with tools etc. It's not rocket science but I can understand that some people don't have a clue. No offense. I'm old and don't understand today's computers all that well. Ceilng fans are analog technology.
