Ceiling Fan noise

My ceiling fan makes a ticking noise when being used,....it's not constant, but, does get a bit distracting, any advice?

Thanks

    I had a similar experience and determined it was the chain touching the light fixture. Tape a cotton ball around the chain, or substitute a string pull.

    Did you check the little chain that hangs down to turn the light on and off? It may be the culprit.

    Sounds like it might be off level. Check the blades and make sure they are tight, one loose screw and it could put it off a little and cause that.
