ceiling fan woes

i recently hung a ceiling fan (with light fixture) on an existing supply, controlled by a dimmer switch. when i turn the dimmer to full, the fan hums. i usually dont put much faith in dimmers, for this one reason, but this one was already in. any quick fix suggestions? thanks in advance for the help.

You cannot run a fan on a lighting dimmer. It may ruin the fan motor.
