So, you’ve got a wobble to your ceiling fan. First off, there is some troubleshooting you can try to balance your ceiling fan. We would recommend you first try the troubleshooting.
Typically, the troubleshooting includes the following:
Check your ceiling fan to ensure that the blades are properly screwed into the blade holders. Loose screws and loose blades will cause the blades to wobble while in operation.Get a damp rag and clean the top of the ceiling fan blades. Buildup from dirt and dust can unbalance the blades, which will lead to wobbly operation as well.
If you have checked and ensured the wobble cannot be resolved this way, you may need to purchase a ceiling fan balancing kit. A balancing kit works by attaching weights to the blade which is unbalanced. You can determine the unbalanced blade by attaching a clip-on weight in the middle of each blade, one by one. Once the wobble decreases, you have found the unbalanced blade.
