Ceiling fan problem

My ceiling fan has worked great for about 20 years, but has now quit rotating. The motor still hums, so I believe it is still getting power. Does this mean the motor has failed?

Ceiling fan problem

Twenty years is a long time for a fan. yes, get a new one. They are more power efficient these days.
