At installation, and at regular intervals of not more than 12 months, all screws, bolts and fixings associated with your ceiling fan should be checked. Loose fixings are a significant contributor to fan noise and wobble, and when left unchecked can result in a safety hazzard.
Loose screws, bolts or fixings are not covered under any guarantee or warranty. They form part of the installation which must be done by a qualified electrical contractor.
Appropriate fixing of the fan to the ceiling is required at installation, and is the responsibility of the installing electrician. From a maintenance perspective, excessive wobble may result from poor fixing, or loosening of the fixing screws.
Typical areas to check
Regular maintenance of these screws & fixings will ensure longer life and reduce potential fan wobble & noise.
The most common place where screws or bolts are not done up tightly or loosen over time is the fan blade fixing screws. These should be checked regularly.
NOTE: All ceiling fans must be installed by a licensed electrician, in accordance with the wiring rules and installation instructions.
