Pull Chain Ceiling Fan Stuck


Pull Chain Ceiling Fan Stuck - You know what? The title of this informative article is only out and out misleading. The sole actual "disadvantage" as it pertains to a ceiling fan is what it takes to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans can be hard to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. In some cases, you will need to run an electrical line to the area where the ceiling fan is to be set up. Hiring a capable, bonded and licensed electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the long term unless you're skillful at achieving this type of thing.

There's also the minor "minus" that entails the issue of periodic care. Properly installed, a ceiling fan provides many, many years of nice cooling and cost-savings on your own heat bill (assuming there is a fan that allows one to reverse the blade direction). Allowed, you should wipe down the blades in a while but then, everyone has household cleaning chores to take care of from time to time.


On occasion, ceiling fans get out of balance and need minor alterations. The most often encountered culprits are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades that aren't at the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades and also a blade or blades that weigh slightly more than the others. Make sure that every one of the screws are tight without going into great detail. If they truly aren't tightening the ones that run the fan and have come loose. In the event the wobbling has quit, your problem was solved.

If not, make use of a yardstick or another straight piece of wood and put it (together with the fan stopped) vertically in the outer edge of one of the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that every blade touches the stick. If one or more don't, simply (and gradually) bend the blade(s) so that their pitch matches the others and repeat the procedure until you're satisfied that each blade has the same pitch. Turn the fan on again and see if you have solved the difficulty.
