Signs you need a ceiling fan repair
You probably need to repair your ceiling fan if it:
- Doesn’t turn on. This could indicate a electrical connection, wiring or switch issue. The problem could also be bad wiring or a faulty fan motor. If your ceiling fan doesn’t turn on, but the light on it does, the problem is usually the fan motor.
- Wobbles. A wobbling fan could just mean a fan blade is out of balance. However, a misaligned fan blade is normally a sign that the fan wasn’t wired or mounted to the ceiling correctly.
- Makes strange noises. It’s normal to hear your ceiling fan when it’s on, but a grinding or squeaking noise usually indicates a larger problem.
Electrical work can be dangerous, so we recommend leaving the troubleshooting and repairs to a qualified professional.
When to repair vs. replace your ceiling fan
Sometimes, a ceiling fan repair will turn into replacing your fixture.
While we can’t give a cut and dried answer to “When should I replace my ceiling fan?”, most Atlanta homeowners decide to replace instead of repair their ceiling fan when it:
- Is 10+ years old. The average ceiling fan will only last 5–10 years. If yours is approaching that age, you should consider installing a new one.
- Starts losing speed. While this could just be a bearing or lubrication problem, it usually means the capacitor is going bad. Capacitors aren’t expensive, but replacements for certain models can be hard to find.
- The motor is bad. The motor is the most expensive part of the fixture—sometimes costing more than a new ceiling fan.
- Needs frequent repairs. Repair costs add up quickly. If you find yourself calling an electrician to fix your ceiling fan every few months, you might want to look into installing a new fixture.
