The 2-year old Hampton Bay ceiling fan with lights started running real slow and the motor got very hot to the touch, so I decided to change it today. Got a Hunter model also with lights. The other two Hunters I have give me no issues. I thought it would be easy, but four hours later and gallons of sweat, I finally got it done, without making an added trip to Home Depot I will take apart the old Hampton Bay and see if I can fix. Other than the capacitor, any one know why the motor would get so hot? Then, since I had the ladder and electrical tools out, I decided to try to figure out why the interconnected Kidde smoke alarms keep going off randomly. After much thinking, I said let me check the voltage on the line. 220V Holy Molly, Batman, why would anyone wire the alarms on 220V. Sigh. This means climbing into the attic to find the feeder line and change it. More sweating and dust and spiders and insulation.
