fan chord broke

simple petty thing here, fan chord is missing, it mustve broken off before we moved in, unfortunately it broke while the fan was going apparently. Is there a way of just turning off the fan without taking it apart. It's winter, and i can't turn the light on without the fan going, its either have light and be freezing or sit in the dark. Tips appreciated thank you!

Nope, you will have to take the fan apart and fix or disconnect the pull chain switch.

Turn off the breaker and take off the light kit and you will see the fan chord switch. See if it is a 3 or 4 wire switch and replace with the same one. Its pretty simple to do.

I don't mean to hijack your tread but i have the same problem. I took it apart and the switch had come apart and kinda fried the plastic when it shorted out. I replaced the switch and it does'nt work. My question is, would it have damaged any other componets or switchs in the fan? Thanks JD.
