    Any experience with ceiling fans?

    I have a craftsman(not Sears) ceiling fan and all of a sudden it has just one speed.
    Any advice?

    Remote or pull chain ?

    If pull chain, possible 3 speed switch took a dump

        Depending on the age of it, I'd change it for a new one. Pretty simple, even i can do it.

          Maybe Sears carries part kits for The Craftsman ceiling fans if it's worth it, there are u tube videos on replacing parts, ,I've had similar problems with the Hunter ceiling fans....

              With the fan "ON" pull the pull chain? What happened.....? If it responds turn fan off with the pull chain .. Then pull chain three time to put fan on Hi once on Hi verify the fan is on Hi "ok" then try using remote like normal. Is it possible someone pulled the chain ? Maybe cleaning it ? If this doesn't work then you need someone who is comfortable testing voltage in household wires - not a job for a amateur .

                Sounds like the switch. Could be the motor too.
                Unless it's an expensive fan or one you really like I'd get a new one.

                  I changed out 1 last year...picked it up on Amazon at a good price. Beat Home Depot & Lowes by at least $30.

                  Now my wife wants 2 more replaced.

                    Hand her a phillips head and remind her to turn off the power 1st?

                      She'll remind me of a time I was putting in an attic staircase, during a heatwave....about 150° up there. Anyway, I thought I moved all of the lines out of the way...but I missed one & at a critical time.

                      So I cut it....BANG!!!....

                      It was a line for the hard wired smoke detectors...blew out the power on the upstairs sub-panel....no a/c or lights.....

                      Luckily Home Depot was open late so I could go & buy parts to slice in an extension & new junction box. Which I did while sweating bullets, in the dark standing on top of a ladder.

                        Price out parts, then price out a whole fan/light combo.. You'd be surprised at what pricing of a million China made units drops to compared to a few replacement parts..
