Why Won’t My Ceiling Fan Work?

Posted by: Cooper MechanicalWednesday, March 25, 2015

Don’t spin around in circles when confronted with electrical and refrigeration issues.

Electrical and Refrigeration Issues

A broken ceiling fan is a common issue that electrical and refrigeration specialists can solve in no time at all. Trying to figure out the issue without professional input is going to result in wasted time and, possibly, present the risk of personal injury along the way.

Troubleshooting with a broken or wobbly ceiling fan? In the heat of spring, still air can be the kiss of death. Homeowners desperate for a breath of fresh breeze might be compelled to take matters into their own hands, but this is unadvisable. The best bet is to call a professional for quick solutions. Here's how professional electrical and refrigeration services can help:

1. Wiring and Power Issues?

When electricity is the culprit, the penalty for failure is high. Fiddling with wiring is a risk that you don't need to take, but shockingly, many people do injure themselves this way every year. One thing you can safely try is flipping the circuit breaker and seeing if that's the source of the power issue.

2. Hanging Loose?

One of the common complaints with fans is that they become loose from their hanging fixture and wobble in a noisy or uneven pattern. This can range from being annoying to dangerous. A loose ceiling fan could potentially dislodge from above and fall to the floor. It's also risky to try and examine this problem because the fan wiring could become compromised if the body of the fan moves too far away from the ceiling.

3. Lighting Issues?

In addition to being a source of cool refreshment in the summertime, ceiling fans are also equipped with lights. When the bulb blows out, grabbing a new one is no problem. But if that doesn't fix the issue? You might need to get an electrical technician to take a look.
