Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Since this is a repeat problem, I would suspect a low voltage is causing the fans to spin slower.

2) Do you have an AC voltmeter available to take some voltage measurements?

3) Have you noticed any of the light bulbs in the home that are dimmer than normal brightness?
