If the fan's not going, don't worry about it. :) Cockatiels will fly around to stretch their wings, get exercise, or generally just explore. As long as they're not getting into something up on the fan, there really isn't a problem with them being up there.

As for recalling off of the fan, try using a piece of millet. Hold it in your fist, extend your two fingers, and call for your bird. When they come to your hand, reward with the millet and praise them. Offer scratches in reward too. The more you do this, the more positively they'll see the action of you calling for them, and will actively want to come to you.Remember, as with training any animal, positive reinforcement works wonders! :)
