How do you shut off a ceiling fan that stays on?

<><><>

Four possibilities: 1. Look for a Turn Switch or a Pull-Chain hanging from the fan - if there is one try turning the switch or pulling the chain! 2. A faulty Turn Switch or Pull-Chain Switch near bottom of the fan 3. The switch at the fan has a missing pull chain or string? 4. A faulty wall switch?

If nothing is found, someone has hard-wired the fan to keep it on all the time. This would be extremely unusual!
