Stop Ceiling Fan Blade Wobble

Using the balancing clip is a tedious job, but necessary when all else fails

Good fan blades rarely need balancing because they are pre-balanced at the factory and packaged as a set. That’s why you should never mix blades between fans. 

If a ceiling fan does wobble, there are ways to troubleshoot the problem. In this video Fernando Pagés Ruiz, a Lincoln, Nebraska, builder, shows you three of them. The last of these is using the balancing set that comes along with the fan. For more on the subject see Fernando's article Choosing and Installing a Ceiling Fan.
