But don’t worry here I am telling you some symptoms, so that you would be able to figure out the exact problem in your ceiling fan and may probably you get the ability to repair it your self.


Problem number 1: Ceiling Fan is making noise too much.


fan bearingSolution: This is because the bearing inside the fan motor are not working properly and the balls of the bearing have been cut or out of place. You need to change the bearings. Bearing are cheap at market that you can find from any hardware store. But you will have to get the bearing with you to show the number of bearings, so that you would be able to replace them with ease. There are two bearings in each ceiling fan, may be upper bearing is out of order or below the motor, but it is recommended to change both the bearing instead of only one.


Problem number 2: The Ceiling Fan speed is not fast.

Solution: This is because the ceiling fan capacitor is not working fan capacitorproperly or may have burned. (See Picture) You need to change the capacitor, that you can find on the upper area of motor. But remember the wire code and color before you change the capacitor. If you change the wire series then the fan may rotate anticlockwise. It will start moving but will not give air downside, instead will give upper side. So, need to see this thing compulsory. If the capacity of the capacitor is 2.5uf then change it to 3.5uf. The maximum capacity of a normal ceiling fan capacitor is 4.5uf. It is not recommended to replace 4.5uf. 4.5uf capacitor is for the weak winding fans, not for normal fans.


Problem number 3: The Ceiling Fan stopped working and it is too much heating.

So it will be better to consult with technician or buy a new fan. The ceiling fan is not as much costly to buy.
