HOW DOES ONE TURN OFF FAN WITHOUT PULLCORD? IT CAME ALL THE WAY OFF.THIS IS OVERHEAD FAN/ PROBABLY 35 YEARS OLD.
Welcome to Just Answer, I will do my best to help you with your problem
You're going to have to kill the power to the fan at the breaker in the electrical panel, then take the fan apart so you can access the switch. Next you can either replace the switch or put wire nuts on the switch leads then turn the power back on
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT A SWITCH LOOKS LIKE OR WHAT WIRE NUTS ARE.
The pull cord is attached to the switch. If you aren't comfortable in dealing with removing or replacing the switch then all you can do is turn the power off at the panel

I assume there is no wall switch that controls this fan. Of course if you turn off the breaker to the fan other outlets and ligth fixtures may be on the same circuit and would lose power until you can get someone out to fix the fan switch
I JUST WILL HAVE TO LEAVE BREAKER OFF UNTIL I CAN GET AN ELECTRICIAN NEXT WEEK. I DON'T WANT TOPAY FOR EMERGENCY TRIP.
You can always turn the breaker back on if you need to use some thing on that circuit then turn it back off again when you're done. I agree it's not worth the extra cost to get an electrician out after hours. It shouldn't be a safety hazard just a nuisance.
