Unfortunately you can't buy one blade. Blades are made in sets and have to be balanced within a few grams of each other. If you can find the supplier for this brand there is a small chance you may be able to buy a new set of blades but you will need to know the model as well. Blades aren't interchangeable between brands or models.

Most likely you will need to buy a whole new fan.

mcdevito75 here, The wires in the instuctions should show what color they hook up to, now just match those wires with the switch, a small tip, hook up a dark wire from the fan motor to a dark wire on the switch, a lite color wire from the fan motor to a lite color wire on the switch as you hook up each pair or wires, cover the bare wires remaining on the fan motor and switch with tape and try the fan to check spped.

wobbling means its out of balance .. make sure that all of the blades are properly seated where they bolt down .. if one is sticking up a bit then it will be out of balance .. check the the tips of every blade is the same distance from the ceiling when rotated to a fixed position .. if one is off then its mounting bracket may be bent or mounted wrong .. finally its possible that the blades simply dont weight the same .. i have a strobe light that makes it easy to see which blade is the problem .. but you can just guess by experimenting ... one way is to mark one blade so you always know where your started .. then clip on one of those spring clips normally used to hold groups of papers together ... clip it to one blade (as a weight) and see if it makes it better or worse .. rotate it around each blade until you find the best place .. then move it toward the tip or toward the motor and see if that makes it worse or better .. with a bit of work you can eventually balance the fan nicely .. they make stick on weights to do that job .. in fact there is a fan balancing kit that includes moveable weights as well as stick on weights ... if the fan is new and way out of balance then they will probably give you a new set of blades for it .. when its balanced properly then it should have very little or no wobble ..

Ceiling fan lamps are typically a low profile lamp. They can be found in most building supply stores .. l;ook in the lamp section or the lights, fan section of the store . The lamp package will be marked for ceiling fan use.

ANy electric store will have different switches (lowes and home depot do too) just make sure you bring the old one with you. The colors of the wires shouldn't make too much of a difference just the amount

I'd be more concerned on how much clearance you have between the blades and the floor since you mention a "low" ceiling. The efficiency drops
rapidly as you get too close to the ceiling. You also have to worry about the wobbling of the unit. I wouldn't go less that 8"

To get a free switch you will have to take it out and take it back to where you bought it and they will replace it or just take the whole thing back and get a brand new one because of the switch. thats the only way you will get a free switch.

If the fan is running at all, you have the capacitor connected properly. Without the cap the motor won't start up. There are only two wires to the cap, and it doesn't matter which one goes to which lead on the part. As long as you connected the same wires that went to the old one to the new one, you did it right.

Most likely, when you had the fan apart to replace the cap you bumped the "winter/summer" switch and reversed the fan direction. Just flip that switch and the fan should be back to spinning the way you want.

Buy a new one. Fans are throw away made. It woul dbe more expensive to fix than it is to buy a new one.

Aloha Housewares... | Answered on Apr 10, 2010

reason for2 way wiring is that there will be a switch on the unit for forward or reverse called summer/winter now remember electricity is dangerous and cant be seen, like gas for home appliances . rule of thumb being " if you cant see it dont play with it " get it installed by a reliable electrician , a bit of money but a whole life to live
