Ceiling Fans Questions and Answers


Wobbly

Wobbly ceiling fan

Was cleanin' ceiling fan for summer use, and now it wobbles. It hangs from a 17' ceiling with a 6' extension tube and the wobble is quite noticeable (enuff to make the chain of the lights to bounce back and forth between sconces). The extension moves freely and i don't notice any particular angle one way or the other, it looks level. What can I do to stop the wobble?
Oh..it has sealed bearings..so oiling is not an option.

No oiling isn't what you need. The fan wobbles because it is not balanced. Did you, by chance, knock a balancing weight off of it when you were cleaning it??

They sell balancing kits for these fans at lighting stores. Try there. You will need to add weight to one of the blades to smooth things out.

Balancing a ceiling fan

Does any have some helpful tips for balancing a ceiling fan. I have one that is approximately a year old that I cannot get balanced.

My ceiling fans came with clips and a small weight that you could attach to the top of the fan blade. I assume you have these. Place the weight on each fan blade, successively and spin the fan by hand. This way you should be able to tell which fan blade is in most out of balance. After you determine the fan blade to attach the weight, you adjust the weight along the blade (by trial and error) after allowing the fan blades to get up to operating speed (electrically). The further away from the motor housing, the greater effect, so start out with the weight close to the motor housing.

Ceiling fan wobble

We have vaulted ceilings and I was wondering if there is any way to stop our ceiling fan from wobbling. We bought one of the weight kits but one of the first things it tells you to do is check the distance between the ceiling and the blades. With a vaulted ceiling there's no way, it's going to be the same. What can I do?

What you can try is a little trial and error. Start with small weights, add them to one blade, and see what effect it has. It will either improve or make it worse of course. In addition, you can see where to go next. You may find you need to add a little weight to more than one blade. However, always start small first.


Installation

Installing Ceiling Fans

I want to install a ceiling fan in my bathroom but there is no Light Socket. I do have canister lighting in my bathroom. How hard is it to run electrical and add support beam?

Well not too hard if you have done it before or are relatively so inclined. You not only need to run power to it (from the canister light) but down to the switch in the wall to control it. If you have access above (in the attic?) it makes the job much easier.
As for the support beam, the new box can be bought with a metal bracket that easily mounts to the ceiling joists on either side of where you putting the fan.
If you are doing his yourself and would like some more specific guidance, let me...
