We have been installing, maintaining, and repairing industrial ceiling fans in several cities in Texas for several years, and over the years, we have decided to put together common ceiling fan problems and how we fix them. Having an idea of a problem will help to proffer an appropriate solution faster.

Common Problems With A Ceiling Fan

Humming Sound

It is possible for your ceiling fan to begin to make a humming sound or other funny noises. And if you don’t fix it, the noise will get louder and louder until it becomes unbearable. Most times, when this happens, it is usually caused by some parts rubbing on each other or a worn-out component.

Our electricians will remove the fan and disassemble it, check for any worn-out parts. If any, we will replace it. In addition, we will apply engine oil to all the necessary areas. In the end, the pesky noise would disappear.

It is also necessary to mention that many of the fans that have the problems are the ones that are not well maintained. With proper maintenance, your fans may not encounter these noises and sounds.

Fan Suddenly Stops Working

This could be an electrical problem, motor burn-out, or capacitor issue. And it could be that its control has packed up. Whatever the problem is, we might need to check every component of the fan to find out the faulty component and replace it.

Even after we discover the faulty component, we also check further to see if there’s another component that might pack up soon. In other words, we combine repairs with preventive maintenance. And if we have to replace any components, we go for high-quality brands that will last longer. That’s why we don’t fix the same problem twice.

Flickering Fan Lights

Modern ceiling fans come with an LED light that is usually located under the fan. It is possible for the LED light to start flickering. One common cause of this problem is bad limiters. The limiters are meant to control the current an LED bulb consumes.

When the current limiters go bad, the LED light of your ceiling fan may begin to flicker. And when our electricians show up, they’ll check the current limiters first. However, there could be another cause to this. It could also be caused by old wiring or electrical panel. If the current limiters are okay, we’ll now consider other possible causes.

Dysfunction Remote Control

If the remote control of your ceiling fan stops working, what should come to your mind is to change the battery. However, it could also be caused by other electronic components in the remote control. When the battery is going down, you’ll see some signs.

When you begin to press a button twice or more before your fan responds, you should be preparing to change the battery. But if the remote control just packs up suddenly without any signs, it is most likely not the battery. Unfortunately, we can’t change the components of remote control. If it packs up, change it.

Fan Runs Slowly or Doesn’t Work at Some Speeds

When the ceiling fan starts running slowly, or it works at only some speeds, people usually think the motor is the problem because it rolls the blades. The motor does shut down like that. A motor burns out, and when it does, the fan will not work at all.

It is a faulty capacitor that makes ceiling fans act funny. Of course, a faulty capacitor could also make the fan stop working completely. Nevertheless, when your fan begins to run slowly, the problem is usually a faulty capacitor. You need to replace it.
