Question: why does my entire ceiling fan spin on the ceiling?
The genius who installed my ceiling fan, with a light fixture, somehow did it so that when then fan is turned on, the light fixture spins with it. Great for a disco club, not so great for my bedroom. Anyone know how to fix it? If it matter it’s a Harbor Breeze Chesire fan:

Answer: OK, there is something truly wrong with this picture. If the entire light fixture spins along with the motor housing of the fan, your fan is definately installed incorrectly and you need to stop using it right away before it falls from the ceiling and seriously enjures someone. I’d be concerned about the wires getting twisted and shorting out as well.
But…before you go taking the fan off the ceiling, grab your cellphone or digi camera and take a video of the thing spinning out of control then email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can do a visual on it and tell you what the problem is.
I look forward to seeing your video…
