My wife noticed my son's ceiling fan was moving VERY slowly on night when he
had it on. The she shut it off, the next day I went to check it out and
nothing happens now. I can just hear a very slight hum from the motor when
it is turned on. WHat might be wrong ? Do these fan motors go out alot ?
I have since, made sure the fan part is turned off and removed the pull
chain from the switch so he can't turn it on.
Yes. Could be the motor bearing worn and not easily turned. Turn on the
power and give the blades a spin by hand If it goes, it is probably that,
but it may be cheaper to replace it than have the bearings replaced, unless
you can do it yourself.
