Hi I’m Colby with Del Mar Fans & Lighting
and I’m here to talk to you about using a ceiling fan blade balancing kit.
Use a ceiling fan blade balancing kit as a last resort.
If your ceiling fan wobbles head over to our How To Fix A Wobbly Ceiling Fan video and
try those methods. After trying those methods if your ceiling
fan still wobbles then continue watching this video on how to use a blade balancing kit.
First, identify the fan speed that causes your fan to wobble the most.
This is typically the highest speed. You’ll use this speed when testing the clip.
You’re going to need a ladder and a blade balancing kit.
If you don’t have a blade balancing kit then you can click the link above and purchase
one from us. Let’s get started.
Turn off your ceiling fan and place the balancing clip on the rear edge of your blade between
the holder and the tip. Turn on the fan to determine if the wobbling
had improved or worsened. If there is no improvement, turn off your
fan and move the clip onto the next blade. Then turn the fan back on and see if this
is the blade that is unbalanced and if it isn’t, repeat on all your blades until you
find the one that is unbalanced. That’s still not it.
We’ve identified the unbalanced blade. With the clip on this blade the fan wobbles
the least. Now find the exact location of where to place
the sticky weight by moving the clip up or down the blade based on how balanced it is
when you turn it back on high speed. Press a balancing weight on the blade center
line directly in line with the clip. Press the weight firmly to ensure it attaches.
Then remove the plastic clip. Turn your fan back on to the highest speed
and confirm that it’s balanced. This one looks pretty good.
