I pulled the chain on my ceiling fan for the lights and the whole change came into my hand. There is no part of the chain appearing where it connects to the ceiling fan. I tried taking the nut off and it got me no where. Anyone know how to fix this. Do I have to take the whole fan down to repair it? What do I take apart in order to get the chain back into the rest of the fan? Thanks!

Turn off power first.
If there is a light kit, you will have to remove it. Not difficult - usually you remove one screw and loosen 2 others from the side (not the bottom). If no light kit, remove the bottom plate. Then you should be able to see the switch that the chain connects to. If the switch is broken, you can get replacements at your local Lowes or Home Depot. Take the old one with you. Pay attention to the number of connections and size of the threaded end of the switch so the new one will fit the same hole.
