Generally speaking, all paddle fans shake to some extent but if yours seems excessive, you mave have a bent paddle bracket. Try unbolting ( usually 3 screws per paddle) the blade from the bracket while leaving the bracket attached to the motor.. Then run it up at high speed... If it still rattles a lot, you've got an out of tolerance bracket, if it runs pretty smooth, you can put the paddles back on and try it again. ( sometimes reseating the paddles and making sure the hardware is secure will solve your problem) If it turns out that your paddles are the cause of the problem, you can purchase replacement paddles from Home Depot or other home improvement stores.. Hope that helps...

When does it shake? Low speed, off brake... Bad tires. High speed off brake... Balance tires. High speed on brakes... Rotors. Trucks and AWD can be transfer case, diff, ujoints, out of balance driveshaft and tires. Have your car lifted and walk around it, always check tires, ballpoints, tie rode ends

How do I fix my fan from shaking so badly?


Did you just clean the fan? If while cleaning, you bent a fan blade, even a hair it will shake. Blades are perfectly balanced. Moving one just a hair, will cause the fan to shake. Trying to re=balance the blade(s) is futile, you can get it close, but it will take somr patience. If the fan has built up dust on the blade(s) will begin to shake if some blew off unevenly

My ceiling fan wont stop shaking


sound like the fan is unbalanced , go to HOME DEPOT or any hardware store and purchase a pack of weights , these are small weights with self adhesive on them, to BALANCE IT start with one blade at the time , with the pack of weights it should include a square black horseshoe type to clip on the fan blade , this black clip is to let you know where to put a small weight, OK , so clip on at the middle of 1rst blade , start fan at high speed , if it shakes less , put on a small weight , do the same with the rest of fan blades , until it stop shaking , hope this helpful , AJ

Seem like you need to have at-least the two front tires high speed balanced. This shaking at high speed is most likely due to the tire being out of balanced. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Shaking at 70mph


If only happening at a particular speed, the tires & wheels need to be balanced. If shaking were to occur at other speeds, suspension components, alignment, loose lug nuts, and more can cause the shaking . But at only one speed, and then disappears as you lower or raise that speed is caused by out of balance wheels\tires. Be sure to have them high speed spun balanced as "static" or bubble balancing only balances in one plain. Dynamic balance covers across the tread as well as the running "plane" or front and back of the wheel tire combo. Thanks for your question and be sure to rate this soultion for us. Good luck, Papa

My explorer shakes at driving of high speed


Something out-of-balance somewhere. Start with the tires, check the wheels, then have the driveshaft balance checked. Do any off-roading?

check your tyres and wheel alignment and wheel balance if all that is good inspect your engine mounts for wear
