Ceiling Fan / April 25, 2018 / Arlene Hart
Blade irons/brackets: Blade irons attach your ceiling fan blades to the motor, connecting the fan together after it is mounted. J-hook and claw hook: With this type of mounting a metal hook secures to the ceiling, so that your fan will be directly attached to the material of the ceiling wall. Low ceiling adapter: A low ceiling adapter is a kit which accomplishes the same thing as a downrod. Usually made of brass or another metal, a low ceiling adapter kit attaches directly from the ceiling and omits the need for lowering the fan at all as it automatically hangs a little farther down with the adapter.
So, after a few years, you may begin to notice the motor housing beginning to show signs of wear with vibrating and other noise being the telltale signs. There's nothing you can do to fix these problems besides investing in another fan (throwing good money after bad). Also, cheaper fans often have blades that are made of inferior material which may begin to warp or go out of balance. While you can do a temporary fix for this kind of problem, you're going to end up with a chronic headache since the basic cause of the problem just won't go away no matter how many times you try to fix it.
