Identifying a Possible Defective Ceiling Fan
Ceiling Fan Question: I just installed my ceiling fan but it does not rotate yet there is power to the device since the lights work and I can actually feel and hear the motor running in the casing. Is it possible that a disconnected wire is not allowing the fans to rotate?

How to Avoid Buying a Defective Ceiling Fan
Every once and a while I unknowingly install a defective ceiling fan, This does not happen very often but when it does it is very frustrating because of all the steps it takes to assemble and hang a ceiling fan. The best way to avoid purchasing a defective or bad ceiling fan is to never purchase a ceiling fan if the box has been opened, especially if there are signs that the contents have been opened or removed. Some defective ceiling fans can be returned to the store and placed right back onto the shelf without anyone knowing that the ceiling fan has a problem.
IMPORTANT: If you return a defective ceiling fan make sure to tell the clerk, and mark “DEFECTIVE” on the box!

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
