Assuming you mean ceiling or whole-house fans, Electrical would be the Search the List category if the problem is known to be no power getting to it. If it is thought to have power to it but is not working, generally for a whole-house or attic or kitchen/bathroom or other in-ceiling or in-wall ventilation or exhaust fan then Heating and A/C would be the normal category to search for well-rated and reviewed vendors.

For ceiling suspended circulation fans that is sort of a gray area - Electrical again if not getting power to the fan, either HVAC or Electrical for repair of the fan itself - some will, some won't. Generally, for an economy suspended ceiling fan (box store type or replaceable with such) if the motor itself (as opposed to feed wiring or switch) is the problem, then generally an electrician will not fix it and getting a new one is the solution. For high-end ones, specialty electrical motor shop or some Appliance Repair - Small shops will handle that.

For portable fans - though unless quite large (over $150 value or so) generally cheaper to replace than fix - Appliance Repair - Small again.
