5 Sings of a Broken Fan
While different types of fans will have their signals that they might be broken and need to be repaired. Here is a list of signs that you can look out for to tell if almost any type of fan in your home might be damaged or broken:
Will not switch on
This sign cannot be left off this list. If you have tried to switch your fan on more than once, it will not turn on. You should first make sure the power supply to the fan is not cut off. If the fan will still not switch on, this is a sign that your fan is broken.
If your fan has suddenly become noisier than usual, you should consider calling a professional to come and take a look at it. Even if you can adjust to the noise, it might not sound too bad. Do not leave it too long because this can cause more damage to the fan.
If your fan seems to have a bit of a wobble, then it is time to call a professional to get this sorted out. It is always best not to use your fan if it is wobbly because it can damage the device.
Blades are stuck
Are the fan blades stuck and just refuse to move even if you try to move them manually? Well then, this is a sign that your fan’s blades are being stopped by something. Even though you might want to find out what is causing this disruption, it is better to be safer and just call a professional to fix it.
After switching your fan on, you might notice that the fan’s blades are moving quite slowly. In this situation, you should try to put the fan at the highest speed and if it still seems to be moving quite slowly. Then it would be best if you took this as a sign that your fan is either broken or damaged.
Fans seem like simple devices that can be easily fixed, even though there are many guides on how to fix a fan. It is always a better idea to call a professional to fix a fan in your home than trying to fix it yourself.
Especially if the fan is connected to a direct source of current, the last thing you want to do is cause more damage.
