Troubleshooting Ceiling Fan thanks for the info and idea you share: Fanimation Ceiling Fans
Well, the new switch didn't work. I hear a definite hum from the fan motor, but it won't turn the blades, even with my help. So, I'll be replacing the fan.
Question: Do you always hear a hum when a fan motor is dead and current is going to it, or can it be silent as well? What exactly is causing the hum?
