Obviously, the motor shaft is either broken or loose. Sounds like poor quality to me. Complain to the manufacturer- this item should last for years, literally. Here's their web site:
You might take it apart to see if you can tighten, glue, or fix it.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Google the brand name and model followed by the word "parts" it will return a number of locations that will sell fan parts. It will take some searching, but you should get good results. If you don't have success with that, get the measurements of what you need and look around. Places that tell you they do not have parts for that brand of fan will most likely have parts that could "fit" your fan under another name. The dimensions will help you find what you need.

Not really. If you're sure your getting power and the motor's not working then it's pretty much shot. If it were an antique or very valuable fan it's always possible to have a motor rewound, but this is very costly and rarely worth it. If it's a standard home depot fan, then no, sorry it's time for a new one.

Check the voltage to the fan, you must get the full voltage. test using a test lamp. If not check the switch/regulator. If there is power you will need to switch off and use a multimeter to check for the windings, check for interwinding short or short to the body. If so you will need help from a rewinding shop for do the coils once again. If OK then you starting capacitor is deffective, replace with the same value. Hope you feel teh fan is free and not having any friction, if so use degreasing spray.( WD40). Hope this advice helps. Good day

Most hardware stores carry replacement sockets. Go to Lowes, or Home depot and ask one of the workers there.

Put a small piece of card board between the mounting bracket and the celing/outlet box. this will dampen the noise, and hopefully fix your problem.

I think it would be adviseable to call an electrician. it could be many things from a broken wall switch, to a break in the wire in the celing, to a short somewhere in the circuit. I wouldn't give the curcuit any power until the electrician finds the problem.

You can call the factory at 1-800-295-4448 to order a new one. They quoted me that it will arrive via UPS in about 2-3 days. I live in PA though, so allow a little leeway in time.

You can go to Radio Shack, and find them there. Just ask one of the workers there for what kind (Voltage and Capacitance ) you need. I happen to have one right here...

It is a 1.5 nano farad With a tolerance of 5%.
It is rated for 250 volts at 50 to 60 hertz.
