What to Check If Your Ceiling Fan Stops Working
Has your fan stopped working? There are a few things you can check and do yourself before you need to give us a call. Give one of the below steps a try the next time your system messes up:
Find the Circuit Breaker
It might sound simple, but sometimes all you need to do to get things up and running again is to simply reset a tripped breaker in your circuit. If your circuit breaker won’t work upon resetting, you might want to consider replacing the fuse altogether, as it may be blown. This is especially likely if the house and circuit breaker are old.
Test the Remote Control
Is it not responding to the remote control? Don’t panic! It could be that the remote has simply run out of batteries, so be sure to replace the batteries in your remote and give it a try if you are unsure. If that doesn’t work, give us a call.
Check the Directional Switch
Sometimes, the switch that reverses the direction of your fan blades may accidentally be set to neutral. Once you switch it back into the desired direction, your device may well be up and running again!
Free the Fan Blades
Sometimes, fan blades get stuck and can block the motor from turning the blades.
Signs Your Ceiling Fan Is in Need of a Repair
If none of the above steps work, and you are left wondering whether your ceiling fan is in need of a repair, just ask yourself these three questions
- Is it humming?
- Is it shaking?
- Is the light not turning on?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, don’t wait around. Give us a call or visit our website so we can get our expert technicians on the case!
