Ceiling Fan Repair Services

Few things are more satisfying than a cool breeze on a hot day. But when your ceiling fan breaks in the middle of summer, the hot, still air can be downright oppressive.

If you have a broken fan but don’t want to pay to install a new one, then ceiling fan repairs are a great option. Fortunately, many of the components in a fan can be replaced for a lower price than just buying a new fan.

Not sure if your fan can be repaired? Not a problem! We’ll explain some of the most requested ceiling fan repair jobs and answer some frequently asked questions.

Frequently Requested Ceiling Fan Repairs

If you’re not sure what is wrong with your ceiling fan, it can be hard to determine whether a repair or replacement is most appropriate. Here are a few ceiling fan problems Mr. Electric will diagnose and fix for you:

  • Motor replacement: Fan motors don’t last forever. If nothing is wrong with the components that direct power to your fan, then the motor is the first place to investigate. We’ll come and install a new motor to save you the hassle of installing a whole new fan.
  • Pull chain replacement: Sometimes the pull chain on a fan stops functioning properly. Whether the chain broke off internally, snapped off in your hand, or otherwise stopped functioning, we can fix it.
  • Wiring replacement: Wiring issues are common in fans. Unless they came with your home, fans are frequently installed by homeowners who may not know how to effectively wire them. We’ll come and install new wires that are guaranteed to work properly.
  • Switch replacement: If you have multiple ways of turning on your fan, but the switch doesn’t work, then you probably have an issue with the wall switch itself. We’ll come diagnose the issue, rewire the switch, and get your fan back in working order.
  • Remote control reprogramming: Some fans come with remote controls, and it’s a hassle when they stop working. If you know that batteries aren’t the problem, we can come and find out what’s preventing your ceiling fan remote from functioning properly.

Why You Should Repair a Broken Ceiling Fan

Scheduling repairs can deliver several quick benefits to your family and your household budget. Here are just a few of the most notable benefits of ceiling fan repairs:

  • Increased comfort: Fans create a nice breeze that can help your family stay cool and comfortable on hot days.
  • Improved energy efficiency: When you get a nice breeze going, you can turn up your thermostat several degrees and save a bundle on summertime cooling bills.
  • Money savings: Repairing a ceiling fan is often more affordable than replacing it, especially if your fan is a high end model.
  • Maintaining your home’s décor: If your fan still coordinates with the room’s decorating scheme, then why get rid of it? A quick repair could keep your stylish fan going for many more years.

When to Replace a Ceiling Fan

Some ceiling fan problems can’t be fixed or are not worth the time and hassle. Here are a few instances when a new ceiling fan installation may be your best course of action:

  • The motor hums but the blades won’t turn: The buzzing might be resistance within the motor as it tries but fails to turn the fan blades. This could cause the motor to overheat, creating a fire hazard.
  • The fan is distractingly loud: Old fans are noisy compared to their modern counterparts. A new fan will be much more soothing, offering a more pleasant and comfortable space in your home.
  • One or more fan blades are broken: Finding replacement fan blades that match the existing ones is pretty much impossible. Just replace the whole fan or at least the whole set of blades.
  • The fan is old, and it’s a cheap model: Upgrading to an efficient, quiet, higher quality fan will enhance the room’s appearance and comfort.

Ceiling Fan Repair FAQ

  • There are a number of things that can go wrong inside of a fan. If you flip the switch and hear a humming sound, then it’s likely an issue with the motor. If the motor makes no sound when you flip the switch, it could be dead or, more likely, you have a wiring issue.
