I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan and in the last 2 weeks the high speed is now closer to low speed. Seems like low speed and medium are about the same, but now high speed is slower then medium.
Should have mentioned is about a 10 year old fan and works via remote if that matters.

That's it's not uncommon for a fan on a remote to lose the 3rd speed. Unfortunately there are a lot of different reasons this could be happening.
Does the fan also have pull chains to control the speed? If your fan operates on pull chains and a remote you have to have the chains set on high (3rd speed) at all times. If the chain got pulled and the fan speed was switched from the high speed then the remote wont be able to turn it back.
This is the most common reason for the problem. If this doesn't fix it let me know. -Gregg
