Ceiling Fan Remote And Receiver With Reverse - You know what? The name of this article is only out and out misleading. The only actual "con" when it comes to your ceiling fan is what it takes to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans might be hard to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. In some instances, you will need to run an electric line to the location where the ceiling fan would be to be installed. Unless you are adept at achieving this kind of thing, hiring a licensed, bonded and capable electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the long term.
There's also the minor "minus" that entails the problem of periodic maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will provide many, many years of agreeable cooling and cost-savings on your heating bill (assuming there is a fan that enables one to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans get out of balance and need small alterations. The most frequent offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor housing, blades which are not at precisely the same angle (pitch) as the rest of the blades and a blade or blades that weigh slightly more than the others. Be sure that all the screws are tight, without going into great detail. Whenever they aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. If the wobbling has stopped, your problem was solved.
Otherwise, use a yardstick or another straight piece of wood and put it (with the fan quit) vertically at the outer edge of among the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that the stick touches. If one or more do not, only (and gradually) bend the blade(s) so that their pitch matches the others and repeat the process until you are satisfied that each blade has the same pitch. Turn the fan on again and see if you have solved the difficulty.
