Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cooling and Ventilation Systems Category: Ceiling Fans

Problem:

Ceiling fan creates poor air flow / circulation.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Screwdriver (or other fastening device as determined by the manufacturer's use of fasteners)

  • Replacement belt

  • Voltage meter

Solution:

 

During the course of your use of a ceiling fan, you may encounter that the ceiling fan progressively loses its ability to create full air flow / circulation as it did the first day it was installed.  This poor air flow /circulation problem more than likely has to do with the condition of the ceiling fan's belt that stems from the fan motor to the fan blower drum.

Caution: When dealing with any device that requires electrical power, make sure you take precautions before you work on it, including disconnecting the power.

If you experience this poor air flow / circulation, do the following:

  1. Unscrew the exterior screws to the exterior cover of the fan and then remove the exterior cover to gain access to the fan motor and blower drum, where you'll find the belt.

  2. As a precaution, use a voltage meter to make sure that the wires connected to the fan are not live (have no power running through them).  (You should have disconnected the power to the fan from the circuit breaker long ago, if you haven't done so already.)

  3. Then check the condition of the fan belt.  If the belt needs to be tightened, tighten it.  If not, replace the belt..

  4. Put the exterior cover of the fan back on the fan, and screw the exterior screws to secure it.

  5. Reconnect the power and turn on the fan, and it should then be able to create full air flow / circulation as it once did.
