    I just replaced my old fan with new one. Everything works great but the fan
    is wobbling a lot because wont slide lock in to the wall mount.

  • Luna Vega says:

    When you get a bill from the hospital for 90,000 for getting electrocuted,
    I’m going to laugh so hard.

  • Lora Schmitt says:

    very good video!

  • Heidi Sholtes says:

    Nice video. I’m going to fix mine right now! The only thing you didn’t do
    was show how to use the circuit tester that you mentioned at the beginning.
    Other than that, very helpful!

  • vulture591 says:

    I just watched your video went to Ace,bought the parts $10.00 and fixed it
    myself. Took me longer to drive the the hardware store than it did to fix
    the light! I figure an electrician, would have charged about $75.00 to come
    out plus parts would be about $100.00. Thanks for saving me $90.00 today!

    Thank you so much. awesome vid

  • NelleShoeGirl says:

    Thank you! I broke my pull chain earlier this week and your video gave me
    the confidence to replace it myself. I just did it tonight and it works! My
    grandpa is an electrician and I can’t wait to tell him about it the next
    time I travel home!

    Mine is a 4 wire (orange, purple, yellow, black) ceiling fan, I replaced
    the fan switch, but it won’t turn on, I did 1 yellow, 2 purple, 3 orange, L
    black, what did I do wrong? please HELP

  • james formo says:

    My fan is a bit more complex .It has cloth insulated wires and is antique .
    Atleast 80 to 90 years old .A new fan seems to be everyones suggestion but
    I like its look and history .

  • Enigma says:

    Doing it without the quick connectors at the very end, with normal wire
    nuts, is really hard!

  • Rachel Tande says:

    What if I opened my canopy and found that the people who owned the house
    before had snipped the wires to the switch and just connected the wires
    from the lights to the top all three white wires from the three lights to
    the one top lead wire and same with all three black to the one top lead
    wire with yellow wire nuts. My old switch had been cut and my guess is they
    just directly wired it. I could not switch the lights on or off I had to
    unscrew the light bulbs.

    I just wanted to say thank you for the confidence to fix my ceiling fan
    light myself! It was successful! Cheers!

  • Robin Mahaffey says:

    Will this repair also work on the fan pull chain? I purchased a “3 way
    ceiling fan light switch” from the store. Is this the part I need? Thank you

  • fanowner12 says:

    @CeilingFanVideosonYT Shit. Must you trash talk everything everybody owns?
    It’s easier to replace a part then to replace the whole fan. You’re dumb,
    obviously. I know I’d repair a pull chain switch before replacing the
    entire unit. Get a life.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
