Understanding the working principle of ceiling fan will give any technician an advantage in carrying out works relating with the ceiling fan. As the days progresses technologists and manufacturers are coming up with new designs and models of fans which ceiling fan is not an exception, the only way to stand out as a technician is to prove to your clients how knowledgeable you are when it comes to jobs relating to that of the fan. Today, due to the numerous that have filled the market many has lost out in both the maintenance and assembling technics, something usually seen as a anyone can do has now become a that needs an expert.
It has become obvious that fan will continue to change and the sizes will continue to differ, it is the responsibility of anyone who may not wish to buy the services of any technician to read wide and understand how to assemble and fix these fan irrespective of the that follow them. To achieve that, one should try to understand fan and its possible causes of .
The of the fan will be discussed widely in our subsequent posts, but for the purpose of those in need of the topic of this post, we shall drop brief explanation of how fan works.
Ceiling fan comprises two magnetic systems which are; electromagnetic coils and permanent magnetic metals. The electromagnetic coils are made to be static because it bears the iron pipe that connects the fan to the . While the permanent magnetic metals were made to rotate with the fan blades by fixing them at the surroundings of the outer part of the fan where it has enough clearance with the fixed coil such that it can rotate while carrying the fan blades.
How can be fixed
The fixing of the involves the following;
First, read the manual that accompanied the fan, try and understand all the parts that accompanied the fan in the carton.
the rigidity of the fan hook fixed at the and ensure it is rigid enough such that, it cannot easily lose under severe .
Measure the long metallic pipe that usually accompanies the fan carton, if the pipe length is too long you will need to reduce the length using a saw blade.
Insert the two-sided metals with holes on them at the upper side of the pipe where they can be hanged on the hook.
The long pin in the form of a screw or large nail having the small opening at the ending edge for locking with small metallic should be slotted in-between the two holes.
The rounded design rubber material should be placed in the long pipe by slotting the screw in it and then making screw to also through the two metals attached at the either sides of the long pipe.
After all, these ensure you tested the assembling with the hook at the to see if it can perfectly when the test is successful, the rubber and screw so the long metallic pipe could come out.
Now is time to fix the main fan and its blades, select the fan blades (usually three in most cases) and ensure they all face downward and fix them at the fan by ensuring they are according to the manual drawing arrangement.
Bring the other end of the long metallic pipe with the hole at either for easy passing of screw across them, let the screw join the and the long metallic pipe.
Having fixed the and the pipe, it is time to hang the entire body back to the .
When you have finished changing the fan to the hook, draw the two terminal in the fan and connect them to the two terminals of the junction box usually fixed at the close to the fan hook.
Go to the wall look out for fan regulator connecting terminal and connect them to the two terminals from the fan regulator, then find a way to fix the fan regulator to the wall.
With the above-mentioned techniques, you may easily find ways to fix most of the fan.
