For those familiar with the ceiling fan, you would know how the fan becomes less efficient and spins quite slow after being used for some time. As replacing with a new one would be costlier, this man shares a way to revive your old fan without breaking your wallet.
A man called Akhie Ayie shared on his Facebook the easy way to revive your old ceiling fan—and it will only cost you $1.22!
With a very low cost, follow these six simple steps to revive your old fan:
1. Open the lid of the ceiling fan counterclockwise to get the fan’s capacitor.
2. Open the white clip so that both of the parts can be separated.
3. Take the separated part to the ground and take off the fan’s capacitor.
The capacitor is the black part connected to the red and grey wire.
4. Replace the old capacitor with a new capacitor. If your fan is using capacitor 2.0, you can replace it with capacitor 2.5 to increase the speed of your fan.
5. Close and screw everything back to its original place after replacing the capacitor.
6. Lastly, connect the separated part back to its original position and close the fan’s lid.
The steps are quite easy to follow, right? Try this and you will get an old fan that’s better than a brand new!
