Ceiling Fan Pull Chain Repair

Ceiling Fan Pull Chain Repair Is Not Hard To Do!

Several years ago, the pull chain switch on our ceiling fan light broke off inside the fan cowling.

Rather than buy a new fan, I was able to repair it without help by replacing the pull chain switch.

If you are purchasing a switch, be sure you purchase the one you need.

There are switches for lights (on and off), and there are switches for 2 or 3 speed fans.

After purchasing the switch, before beginning the repair, be sure the electricity is off to the fan you are working on. Safety first!
I did this myself while my husband was a work. (I'm impatient when I want something done.) Just make sure you have a sturdy step ladder or other surface to stand on so you can reach the fan.

You will be reaching over your head, while working on the pull chain, so be careful. If possible, have a friend or family member stand next to you to steady you.

The following video shows clearly how to repair the pull chain.

Please note: If you choose to do this instead of calling a professional electrician, you do so at your own risk.

Have you ever fixed an appliance or something in your house yourself?
