Question about Hampton Bay Sidewinder 04890 Ceiling Fan

Open Question

I own the sidewinder ceiling fan, it's about 4 years old now. It makes an annoying "clicking" sound while on medium speed. (not on low) It used to only make the noise once in a while but it's constant now. I've cleaned the fan, and it doesn't rock, so I don't think it's out of baland

SOURCE: Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed

It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

SOURCE: hampton bay fan makes squeeking noise

If the fan is fairly new, remove it and return it to Home Depot. It is almost certainly something that has fallen down into the motor and is rubbing loudly enough to make a squeak as the fan runs faster.

The fan itself has sealed lubrication and you don't have to lubricate it.

My ceiling fan is making a clicking noise on low and medium speeds


Make sure all screws are tighten, Since this is a store brand for Home Depot it could be the bearings. You get what you pay for. Low-end fans are made from cheaper parts.

You need to balance the fan blades. There should have been some small metal pieces that came with the fan. I you can not find the pieces, your local Lowe's or Home Depot carries them in the lighting area.

well, they could have. but before you throw it out, go to the hardware store, and buy a new pull switch. either that, or just run it with the high and low speeds. It shouldn't hurt it at all. But, if there is any clicking sounds, or wierd noises coming from it , DON'T USE IT!! it may catch fire. but it did last a long time. 20 years is good for a modern celing fan. though I like my antique 1907 westinghouse 72 inch 2 blade fan. It hasn't died yet!!!

Noise problem CXL52WB


mcdevito75 here, From the little I know about these ceiling fans, they are a sealed bearing type motor, you may be hearing a dry bearing on medium speed for which you"d have to replace the fan to fix. Or, you may be hearing vibration of the fan itself when it"s on medium, vibration could be the fan itself or something slightly loose. Have a handy man take a look at the fan and it"s hook up, make sure everything is tight. Hope this helps.

Our hunter fan won't work on high speed any longer, low and medium speed work fine, when clicked on high - it only goes at medium


Sounds like the variable speed switch may be worn out.
You should be able to purchase replacement switch at the local home depot- type store in the electrical supplies.
Trying to get an exact match to replace may be a bit difficult, but a similar 3 speed switch should work just fine.

I'm sure you put fresh batteries in the remote...right? Most of the time you can correct remote problems by carefully taking the remote apart and cleaning all the contact points with a pencil eraser.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.
