Small Ceiling Fans With Lights - Do you know what? The name of this informative article is merely out and out misleading. The sole actual "minus" as it pertains to your ceiling fan is what it takes to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans might be difficult to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. In some cases, where the ceiling fan will be to be installed you will need to run an electric line to the area. Unless you're skillful at achieving this sort of thing, hiring a competent, bonded and licensed electrician will most likely save you much grief in the long term.
There's also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of periodic maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will provide many, many years of agreeable cooling and cost-savings on your heating bill (assuming you've got a fan which allows one to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you need to wipe the blades down once in a while but then, everyone has household cleaning chores to take good care of of from time to time.
On occasion, ceiling fans need minor alterations and get out of balance. The most typical offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades which are not at precisely the same angle (pitch) as the rest of the blades and a blade or blades that weigh somewhat more compared to the others. Without going into great detail, be certain that all the screws are tight. If they're not tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your problem was solved, if the wobbling has stopped.
If not, utilize a yardstick or another straight piece of wood and place it (together with the fan quit) vertically at the outer edge of among the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to ensure that each blade touches the stick. If one or more do not, just (and gently) bend the blade(s) so that their pitch matches the others and repeat the process until you're satisfied that each blade has the same pitch.
