|Look to see if the continuity switch has been bypassed. Open up the base and take the slide switch out. If both wires run from the motor to the slide switch, the continuity switch has been bypassed. Take one of the headwires and connect it to the continuity switch. Then put a jumper from the other side of the continuity switch and run it to the slide switch. Run the fan to see if it'll shut off. It may run for several hours. If the switch was bypassed, the timing gear is most probably stripped.
