Who do you think is 'you'? Electronics technician indeed. Take it down hot from running and find out what's sucking up all the juice; bearings, windings, controls, etc.

Don't take a year at servicing things if you can help it....

I have two ceiling fan model 23476, since 20 years ago. I.need to know what capacitor (condenser) need to work, because it initiate and work good, but after some time it stop and become slow. Thanks


capacitor is used to start / initiate fan /motor if slowing down would be a different problem such as bearings --dirty overheating --brushes or stator etc

Remove light governor


I installed my Hunter Ceiling Fan a little over a year ago. A few nights ago my wife told me the lights in the ceiling fan blinked a few times when she turned it on. Over the next few day the problem got much worse. When I turned on the light switch, the lights would not turn on. After a few minutes the lights would begin to flash, like a strobe light. This flashing would last for about a minute.
This morning I removed the light kit. I noticed the watt regulator, part 98480-02. I connected the wires directly that were wired through the regulator. So far, the light now works fine!

Why does a table fan slow down after some time?


Revolving blades in table fans pushes out air towards the front by creating a vacuum at the back of the induction motor. Other than providing air flow, the gush of air also cools the motor. Over time, esp if used in a polluted surrounding, dust collects inside the motor and causes friction in the shaft. If left for a prolonged period, this friction causes heat eventually drying up the lubrication, causing breakdown in the motor amature windings and also a leaky starting capacitor, thus slowing down rotation and also a complete failure.

2. Fans must be regularly taken apart, cleaned and lubricated. It is fairly easy if you are willing to learn. My India made Usha brand table fan is 48 years old and is still running smooth - just changed the start capacitor last year and my National ceiling fans are more than 35 years old.

3. In fact all moving parts in any equipment must be periodically taken apart, cleaned free of dust and grime and freshly lubricated. It will outrun your lifetime and serve the next few generations.

HB ceiling fan is getting slower and slower bi the day


Solid-state controls change the level of power in the fan motor to control the speed of the fan. For instance, when you switch from medium to high on a solid-state fan, the speed control mechanism increases the power of the motor. Solid-state controls are generally equipped in fans with controls that have predetermined settings, such as low, medium and high.
The solid state device in or around the fan motor could be defective and in need of replacement.

Light doesn't work


if you have a remote control, check the switches inside of it... default setting is all four of them should be pointing upward.
