Electrical Questions? Ask an Electrician Online.
Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.
1) Does the ceiling fan have pull chains to turn the fan and light OFF?
2) Leaving a ceiling fan in the ON position does not pose any safety issue at all. All of the ceiling fans in my home run 7x24x365 and I never shut them OFF.
Thanks for the replies.
1) If there is a short in the wiring, the circuit breaker will trip.
2) The only other immediate option you have is turn the circuit breaker that controls the fan/light to the OFF position. However, when you de-energize the fan/light by turning the breaker OFF, you will also de-energize the receptacles in the room and possibly any adjacent rooms.
