I have a fan at my home and it is not giving good speed. I am also facing speed issue with it. It is not providing enough air during summer. So Can you tell me how can I increase the fan speed in summer? In which component need to be replaced? Kindly provide the full details.

Is your fan in room running at very low speed? Want to increase its speed? Get the technical advice for this issue from our experts.

Sorry. What you really asked about? Is it Table Fan or PC Fan? It really not making any sense. Sorry. Please review your "Heading" and the "Content" again, and Ask to our experts. It's confusing.

If your asking about room or table fan, speed of the fan can be increased either replacing old capacitor with new one or add a new one to old one (it means two capacitors). With two capacitors fan can achieve very high speeds during low voltages also.
IF you want increase your laptop fan speed, it can be achieved by running more programs at a time or running high memory software or high effects games will increase fan speed of the laptop.

I assume you are talking about room fan. A fan slows down with time as its capacitor does not charge and discharge properly. The capacitor of your fan needs to be replaced. But don't attempt to open the fan and replace it yourself as a security precaution. It is recommended to show your fan to an experienced electrician who will repair it accordingly.

yes,you can increase the fan speed.

First check whether the capacitor of the Fan is holding charge or not to check plug in the two wires of the capacitor directly to he Socket and remove after 5-10 seconds . Make the two wires of the capacitor touch a little bit. After that you will hear a pop sound if the sound is loud then the capacitor is right otherwise change the capacitor and your fan speed will get increased.

Second method is that you add an extra capacitor to the fan same as the existing one. Connect the correct wires and join the both .
the purpose of joining the capacitor is that it reduces the resistence and increase the current flow to the fan and hence its speed get increased.
