Steps On How To Stop A Ceiling Fan From Wobbling

For those people who have experienced a wobbling ceiling fan in Singapore, they are aware of how irritating it is. A wobbling fan is not only noisy but will also not perform its duties as required and thus the airflow will be reduced. The fan may even be damaged in case it is allowed to run in this state for a longer period of time without any repair. The vibration and the wobbling of the fan will induce some significant stresses on the parts of the fan and this will eventually shorten the lifespan of the fan.

Steps On How To Stop A Ceiling Fan From Wobbling

Most of the people attribute the wobbling to poor manufacturer but that is not always the case as there are other factors that can cause wobbling. Some of the common sources of wobbling are: unbalanced blades, warped blades, when another part on the pole assemblies is loose and when the fan is not properly secured to the ceiling. The challenge to most of the people in Singapore is How to stop a ceiling fan from wobbling. Here are the basic steps that can be applied:
1.The First Step Is To Clean All The Parts Of The Fan Thoroughly

This is the first step most of the people forget. In the process of cleaning, you will realize that there are a lot of dirt in the joints and other parts of the fan. Over accumulation of the dirt may result in the misalignment that can cause vibrations in your fan. Besides, when you clean all the parts, you will not be having any problem accessing all the parts of the fan. After cleaning it, wipe it with a dry cloth.
2.Check The Bolts And The Screws On The Fan Blades

You are to inspect each screw holding fan blades to the arms. Also check the screws that hold fan motor to the arms. The screw holding the down rod to the motor should also be tightened. You are to use a stepladder and then grasp the fan body as you shake it to check whether all the parts are tight. In case there is still some wobbling and all the visible screws are tight, then the screws holding the junction box to the fan are likely to be loose. Go ahead to tighten these screws and turn the fan on to check whether it still wobbles. It is very important to check the fan at all speeds since some wobbling occurs only at certain speeds.

3.In Case The Bolts And The Screws Are Not The Cause, Then Check The Balance Of The Balance Of The Fan

This is done by turning the fan at the highest speed possible in the anticlockwise direction while having a clothespin attached to the each of each blade then check whether the fan still wobble. In case the wobbling is no longer seen, check all the other blades by moving the clothespin to each and every blade. In case ceiling fan will stop wobbling at certain position, then the last blade you tested is unbalanced and you have to balance it. In order to balance, attach a weight to the middle part of the upper edge of the blade. To balance the blades properly, you may need to place some weights on different locations of the fan. The weights should not be more than five as they may stress the fan in its normal operation. You can buy such weights from a ceiling fan stores in Singapore or buy them online.

4.In Case The Wobbling Persist, Then You May Be Having A Problem Associated With Warped Blades

To check on whether your blades are warped or not, you are to use a screw driver to remove carefully each and every blade. Arrange them neatly at the table and check them properly. The warped blades will not lie flat on a flat table. Eliminate the warped blades and check on the specifications including the size and the power rating. This will assist you as you will be required to buy new blades to replace the warped blades. After having all the specifications of the blades, you are to look for the best store in Singapore to buy new ones. After buying, you are to fix them back and your fan will work properly. Besides, you can buy the blades online from the authorized online dealers.
