Our ceiling fan spins very slowly, and constantly, no matter how many times I pull the chain to try and turn it off. I've tried leaving it for several minutes between chain yanks, to give it time to spin down (even though it's spinning at about a revolution per ten seconds), but it never stops.
I'm not worried about the fan working - I don't need it. I just want to be sure it's not going to cause a fire. Am I ok?
