The fan blades appear to be out of balance. First, check the screws that hold the fan blade irons to the fan motor. Tighten all that may be loose. If that doesn't solve the problem. the fan hanger bracket behind the ceiling cowl cover may be loose (it's attached with thin screws). In addition, the electrical box, that the hanger is attached to, may have come loose from the ceiling joist. If the electrical box has come loose, the box will need to be reattached to the joist with 1 1/2" long screws.

Hope this helps to solve the problem.

My Hampton Bay Victoria 70 in. French Beige Ceiling Fan has started to sway and make funny noise anything above a level 3


swaying fans are a symptom of out of balance. The blades have to be all at the same height to the ceiling or from the floor . It it was ok before but just started this when the noise started then it may be failing bearing in the fan.
with most fans that means a new one but take it to an appliance shop as it may be repairable.
bearings will be from a bearing supply shop

My ceiling fan "wobbles" when turned on. How do you fix that?


Make sure ALL screws are tight, especially the set screws. Make sure the hanging bracket is tight against fan box. If your blade arms are bent, then you need a new set. Make sure blades are not warped. Other than that you can try a balancing kit as long as it's not that last two problems listed. This happens a lot with low-end store brand fans.

I was trying to see if I could stop my fan from wobbling. After loosening the 2 phillips screws I twisted the upper housing slightly and the complete fan came loose(except for the wires). I just want to...


The fan wobbles cause you bought a crappy Harbor Breeze or Hampton Bay fan. The fan blades need to be balanced with a fan balance kit that comes in the box. You probably threw it out cause you didn't know what the package of weights was for. Get you a Hunter ceiling fan and you won't have an issue with fan wobble, because their fans have better quality control before leaving the factory. If you installed the fan without adequate bracket support- you best get a pro to help you out cause there is no fan wobble help for stupidity.

Wobbles......5 ceiling fans


Several things can cause a ceiling fan to wobble. The most of common of which is loose screws in the fan blade irons , that attach to the fan's motor. Just one loose screw can cause significant wobble and at times, an annoying noise. The other, which is more serious, is that the plastic ball on the top end of the down rod, that attaches to the electrical outlet bracket, is improperly installed. It generally has a groove in it, that must be installed so that it fits over the tang in the bracket. The tang keeps the ball in place. To inspect it, you will need to loosen the screw on the ceiling cowl, so that it slides down the down rod. If the ball is not resting in the bracket properly, lift the fan up by the down rod and put the plastic ball in the proper position. Be sure the wall switch for each fan you work on is turned OFF, before attempting in inspection or repair.

While you're at it, make sure the ceiling/electrical box bracket is tight to the the ceiling and is level,

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the wobbly problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Fan is wobbling and noisy--cannot figure how to tighten the light fixture part of fan


I have a number of ceiling fans and its usally wise to just check that each blade as all the washes and fixing. As leaving just a washer out can alter the whight and balance.Some noise is to be exspected till they bed in so to speak unless they wobble really bad

The canopy doesn't seeem to fit flush up against


You just need to wrap it and tuck it .. You might need to cut some of the fan wires shorter so there is not so much bulk under the canopy cover. The fans are shipped with enough wire leads to be able to use a down rod, They can be cut shorter when the fan is being installed.
