Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Repair Services & Solutions
If you find that your Hampton Bay fan is simply not working, one of the first things to check is the pull chain. But first…does your ceiling fan have a light kit? If so, does the light kit work and not the ceiling fan… or vice versa? If the light kits works, but the ceiling fan does not, perhaps the pull chain controlling the ceiling fan got stuck? Depending upon the position of the pull chain, this could cause other fan controls not to work (i.e. wall switch). If your pull chain is stuck, you can usually maneuver it around to get it loose. Of course, if it gets stuck regularly, you should probably replace it. If both the ceiling fan and the light kit do not work, you may want to check your circuit breaker. This is simple to check in your circuit breaker box. If you find that your circuit breaker blows often, it is probably a good idea to have a licensed electrician check things out for you as you likely have issues in the room other than your ceiling fan. If the ceiling fan and light kit are not working and you recently installed them, you may have an issue with wiring into the room or with the connection between the ceiling fan and the household electric.
If you light kit is not working, but your ceiling fan works fine, it is likely an electrical connection between the ceiling fan and the light kit. The only way to see this for sure is to disconnect the light kit from the fan and double check the wiring. Are all connections made as explained in the installation instructions? Are all wire connections secure and tight? Sometimes a wire can work loose over time if not properly secured during the original installation.
Remember, prior to attempting any ceiling fan or light kit repairs, that you take proper precautions and read and follow any and all instructions that came with your Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan or light kit.
