Hello Mary. If by 'string' you are referring to the electrical power supply cable, then it will need to be taken to a qualified repairer to fit a new cable. I don't understand how such a thing could happen because the cable is well secured with three electrical connections and a physical clamp. Cheers, Don.
Or.. there is still more string in there. Take the fan apart, take the motor out... try to turn it by hand. Does it turn? If not, double check for more string flattened out and stuck btwn the spindle and the machine.
Smell the motor for the distinct smell of hot/melting, etc.
A ceiling fan requires a neutral wire (white), a ground wire (green), a hot wire for the fan (black), and on fans with light kits a hot wire for the lights (blue). These examples will assume that a lighting kit is going to be used, but if it is not terminations to the blue wire are not required and the circuit is greatly simplified The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through switches. When a single switch is used to connect to the ceiling fan and light the ceiling fan (black) and light (blue) would both be connected to the switched black wire. In this configuration turning the switch on would power both the light and ceiling fan. In order to turn just one off, the pull strings would have to be used. The problem with this approach, is that when the pull strings have been used to turn the light or ceiling fan off, turning the switch back on will not work until the pull string is pulled again . The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through two switches. This would generally be two separate switches, one for the fan and one for the light. This would generally be a 3 conductor w/ground coming from the switch box. The ceiling fan (black) wire would connect to the switched black wire from the ceiling fan switch, the light wire (blue) would connect to the switched red wire from the light switch and the neutral (white) and ground (bare) would connect to the their associated wires..
it probably slowed or stalled the motor down so far that if its variable speed it burned out the speed control triac in the speed control,you need to access the speed control board and find the problem,otherwise if the motor isn't harmed too bad,direct wire(bypass) speed control and run on high
Try removing 120 volt power from the fan by turning offf the house circuit breaker or removing the fuse from the fusebox that supplies power to the fan. Wait 30 seconds and restore power. This may reset the fan speed control in the fan itself.
