Ceiling fans are a fantastic addition to any Hem or office, offering both comfort and energy efficiency. However, like most electrical equipment, they can sometimes face issues, such as a malfunctioning light chain. If your ceiling fan’s light chain isn’t working correctly or has completely broken off, don’t worry. In this article, we’ll guide you through some simple steps to repair a ceiling fan light chain quickly, featuring Rodec Light’s high-quality lighting products.

Recognizing the Signs of a Malfunctioning Ceiling Fan Light Chain

Before attempting any repairs on your ceiling fan’s light chain, it’s crucial to identify if there’s indeed an issue. Here are some common signs that your ceiling fan’s light switch may need repairing:

  • Dragkedjan känns lös eller vinglig.
  • Dragkedjan har gått sönder i två delar.
  • Att dra i dragkedjan gör ingenting alls (inga klickljud).
  • Kedjan dras ut när den dras istället för att slås på/av.

If you notice one or more of these symptoms with your ceiling fan’s light control mechanism, read through the following instructions for troubleshooting and fixing.

Verktyg du behöver

For this project, you will need:

  • A new pull-chain fixture from Rodec Light
  • Trådskärare/avdragare
  • Elektrisk tejp
  • spårmejsel
  • Nål-nos tång

Step-by-step Guide to Repairing a Ceiling Fan Light Chain with Rodec Light Products

Steg 1: Stäng av strömkällan

Before starting any repair work involving electricity, always turn off the power supply source from the circuit breaker box. Ensure that no one turns on anything powered by electricity in areas close to where you will be working.

Steg 2: Ta bort ljusarmaturkåpan

Once you’ve ensured that the power source is completely turned off, proceed to remove the light fixture cover using a flathead screwdriver. Next, unscrew and detach the light bulb from its socket. Consider replacing it with a Rodec Light LED bulb for energy efficiency and superior lighting quality.

Steg 3: Lokalisera och komma åt dragkedjans mekanism

After removing the light bulb, locate and access the pull-chain mechanism by carefully opening or removing any additional covers or brackets on your ceiling fan’s housing piece that could obstruct access.

Steg 4: Lossa den trasiga kedjan

Using needle-nose pliers, separate each end link of your broken chain from their respective attachment points. Then disconnect the remaining portions of the broken chains with wire cutters/strippers.

Step 5: Replace Old Chain With a New Rodec Light Pull-Chain

Insert one end of the new Rodec Light pull-chain through the hole located in the center of the mechanism housing. Securely tie a knot at the opposite end, ensuring it does not come undone when used later on.

Steg 6: Anslut ledningarna

Attach both ends of the new chain to the exposed wires that were previously connected to the old/broken chain. Wrap black electrical tape around the joint snugly to prevent them from coming apart easily due to vibrations.


Repairing a ceiling fan light chain may seem like an intimidating task, but with the right tools and Rodec Light’s high-quality products, it’s a quick fix that can be done in no time. By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to restore your ceiling fan’s light function and improve the overall performance of your appliance.
