Introduzione

If your Emerson ceiling fan is humming but the blades are not spinning, you most likely have a broken flywheel. It is a lot easier and cheaper to replace the flywheel yourself, rather than the whole fan.

Before using this guide, make sure you check to fan has power going to it. Check to make sure the circuit breaker is not flipped.

Replacing your flywheel is inexpensive and possible for most ceiling fan brands. If you do not know the brand of your fan, measure the flywheel once you remove it. Note the inside and outside diameter, and the locations and spaces between bracket and screw holes.

You will want to make sure power is turned off to the fan before you start to work on anything.
