3601. General Question #4851 Posted: 4/24/2008 12:27:35 PM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
My ceiling fan will only operate on high speed. What can I do to correct this?

ANSWER:
Odds are you have a bad capacitor. Also, if the fan is a remote controlled fan, then it could be the transmitter or receiver. If your fan is made by a reputable brand (like those on our site), then you can likely get a replacement part and we can help you. If you purchased your fan from a home center or department store, you may not be able to fix it. Can you tell me what brand and model of fan you own as well as where you purchased it and how old it is?





3602. General Question #4849 Posted: 4/24/2008 3:23:52 AM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
I have a 10' X 15" room and I was wondering if blades bigger than 44" would be better for cooler air.

ANSWER:
Certainly. You should use a fan that is 50" to 54" for this size room. However, even more important than the blade span is the power of the motor and the pitch of the blades. This is why we have included an airflow rating system on our site which rates all fans from 1 to 5 where 5 is the very best. So, choose a fan that is rated 5 and has a blade span between 50" and 54" and you will have selected a fan that I would personally recommend. If your budget does not permit fans of this quality, then a lower airflow rating of 4 will be a compromise, but acceptable. Anything less and you will not receive the comfort level that you might like.

QUESTION:
you did not answer the second half of the question--can it work with a low ceiling mounting kit?

ANSWER:
I apologize for missing the second half of your question. The answer is yes, you can use the A180-AP ceiling adaptor kit, which will reduce the height by about 2" bringing the fan up to about 17" from the ceiling to the bottom of the light.

#4837 Posted: 4/23/2008 8:36:42 AM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
Any of your fans made in USA? Thanks, Jean Gaye

ANSWER:
Sorry to say that ceiling fans simply are not manufactured in the USA anymore. Even the old-time brands that were previously made in the USA (like Hunter, Emerson and Casablanca) are all made overseas now. There is in fact one manufacturer left that makes only two models of fans in the USA. However, they are not as good as the brands we carry, they cost more, and are rather unattractive, so we do not even offer them. Might I ask what your needs are specifically?





3613. General Question #4836 Posted: 4/23/2008 8:20:11 AM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
I have Casablanca Concentra indoor ceiling fan model #499D or 4972D. I cannot tell the difference between the two. What I am looking for is a globe light to fit because our other globe is broken. Please recommend a globe light that would fit these fans. Thank you, Carole

ANSWER:
The difference between the 4999D and 4972D is the finish. The 4999D is an off-white finish that has been discontinued, where the 4972D is a textured white finish that is currently in production. Odds are that you simply need to replace the glass piece, not the fixture, so to see the glass shades that are available, simply add the K1K-72 light fixture to this fan by clicking on the tab for lights and finding it. Then, you can click on the tab for glass to see the two glass shades that fit this fitter. Odds are, one of these two fitters is the one you have broken...models G501 or G502. You can also simply give us a call and we can walk you through this to help you out.

QUESTION:
I have a harbor breeze 3-speed fan w/ light fixture, not sure the model or how old, but has no remote. Only pull chains and a wall switch. A few days ago, the lights stopped working (changed the 60W bulbs), but the fan still worked. Now there is a 2-3 second delay between when I turn fan on at wall switch and when it starts spinning. I guess some part is going on it, but don't know what. Similar fans price around $100 so hope it's a $15 replacement part. Any ideas how to troubleshoot? Thanks

3618. General Question #4825 Posted: 4/22/2008 12:06:38 PM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
Humming motor New fan hampton bay

ANSWER:
If you have your fan connected to a light dimmer on the wall, that would cause any fan to hum. However, if this is not the case, it is not unusual for fans purchased from home centers to make noise...whether it be a humming or clicking noise. Fans like Hamtpon Bay that are sold at home centers (in your case Home Depot) are not made to very high standards...so you can expect to have such issues. Such fans are mass produced in China to be sold at home centers and discount merchants. They cut costs in every way possible in order to compete with each other at the lower price points. This means they use cheaper inferior components and have very little quality control. Plus, these mass merchants will have any number of factories in China produce their fans depending on who gives the lowest bid when the next production run needs to be made. So you can buy several fans of the same kind and you will find small differences and inconsistencies between them. My suggestion would be to purchase a higher quality brand of fan the next time. Which means you will need to deal with a specailty fan shop like us, not one of the home centers or department stores.

QUESTION:
I will like to place an order of 20 ceiling fans to Senegal thats over seas and do you accept master card as a form of payment. Mr John Wilson

ANSWER:
First we must know if you can use 110V electricity, which is what most fans sold in the USA are made for (including this fan). If you require 220V or some other voltage, you will need special fans. Please let me know. Payment for overseas transactions is normally done by wire transfer, letter of credit (for substantial orders), or in some cases using PayPal. We will work this out based on your needs.

QUESTION:
We have 5 Montecarlo fans. They are all the same. One fan has begun to hum and vibrate after 6 months of use. Is it a motor problem?

ANSWER:
I would need to know what the model number is and where you purchased it. There are many things that can cause a fan to vibrate or hum. Usually, vibration has nothing to do with humming, so I am curious to know what model you own. I will say that in most cases, if a fan is only 6 months old and has been running smoothly up until now...odds are that someone has hit the fan blades with something while the fan was running. The humming noise could also be a result of that, however it is unlikely. The noise would be more like a clicking or rubbing type of noise. Since Montecarlo has a wide range of quality levels for their line of fans, I cannot tell you more without knowing the model number and where you purchased them. Please give me more details.

QUESTION:
i need a remote control for my charmaine ceiling fan please include the dip switch settings.

ANSWER:
To order a replacement remote for your Hunter Charmaine fan, please call our customer service department at (562) 626-8270. As far as the dip switch settings, you will need to match them to the receiver in your fan once you receive the transmitter...there is no specific factory setting, they are simply matched at the factory during production.

QUESTION:
what is the longest down rod I can use ( I have a 27 foot vaulted ceiling. Can you give me a link to optional light kits. Thanks

ANSWER:
You can purchase a downrod coupler to connect any two downrds together. So, ultimately, you can use two 72" downrods and a downrod coupler for a total of 12 feet, which will bring your fan down to a reasonable level. To view the light fixture options, simply click on the tab above the fan picture that says Lights. This will display all of the compatable light fixture options that will match the finish of the fan...or, simply give us a call and we will gladly make sure you get all the info you need.

QUESTION:
i have an area 15 by 12 with a ceiling of about 8foot high. i need a fan that will give me the most movement of air.

ANSWER:
Look for any fan on our site with an airflow rating of 5. If you cannot afford fans with this rating, then look step down one level to fans rated at 4. It should be no surprise to you that better fans will move more air and will cost more money. For more details about this, read our page that describes which fans are best. It will explain our airflow ratings in more detail and help you know what to look for. Here is a link:

QUESTION:
I have an application calling for (6) Wet Location fans to be installed on the structure of an open air patio. I cannot find a listed fan box for a weatherproof location. The canopy on a fan is typically 4 3/4" to 5". The inspector here is tough. What do I do?

ANSWER:
Congratulations, you have stumped the expert. I am going to need to present your question to several of our ceiling fan manufacturers technicians to see what the general concensus is. Unfortunately, every city has their own requirements, so what I find out may not be suitable for your inspector. It may take me a day or two to get an appropriate answer for you, so in the meantime, can you tell me what brand and model of fans are you planning on installing...it could make a difference on the requirements. Do you already have the fans or are you still deciding on what to purchase?

QUESTION:
the picture for this is not working. could you possibly send me a picture?

ANSWER:
Well, the fan that you have in question is discontinued...which could explain why the picture is not working...although it did work for me. Actually, the fan was presented to us at the latest ceiling fan market, but it never actually made it to production...so you cannot purchase it anywhere. Here is a link directly to the image anyway: http://www.hansenwholesale.com/images/minka/fans/f512-wh-rd-500.jpg

ANSWER:
Definately the Minka Aire Concept II fans in 52". Even better, use the Minka Aire Concept II Wet rated outdoor fan...it actually has a more powerful motor. If the ceiling is white, use the white model as it will blend with the ceiling and appear smaller, yet give you the most air.

QUESTION:
do all your brass outside lights tarnish?

ANSWER:
Do not let anyone fool you...because all brass fixtures will eventually tarnish, whether indoors or outdoors. The highest quality (usually most expensive) brass fixtures will simply go much longer without tarnishing. If you are located in a coastal area near the ocean, it will speed up the process. We have too many brass fixtures for me to address in this forum, so I suggest you call us to discuss your needs and concerns further.





3637. General Question #4802 Posted: 4/20/2008 8:35:55 PM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
Can smaller fan blades be put on any ceiling fan?

ANSWER:
Not on just any ceiling fan. Not only do the blades need to be designed to fit onto the fan, the fan needs to be designed to operate at a higher RPM. Smaller blades put less drag on the motor, which makes it spin faster. If you put smaller blades on a fan that has a cheap motor, you might just burn it up. Please give us a call and we will be glad to help you find the right size fan for your needs.

QUESTION:
I have a Hunter Grand Lodge ceiling fan. For 1 week I had no issues with the remote. Now there are times when the fan just turns on without any reason. In addition, sometimes the fan and light turn on. What could be causing this and how can I resolve? Thanks

ANSWER:
Usually it is another remote device either in your home or a neighbors. My suggestion would be to change the dip switch settings in the transmitter and receiver and see if it solves your problem. This takes care of it most of the time.

What brand and model of fan are you referring to? Also, I am confused...you say the lights work, but not the remote. You mean the remote for the lights or for the fan or both? Please clarify. Ultimately, it sounds like the receiver inside the fan shorted out when the bulb blew...but without knowing more about your fan, I could be wrong.

QUESTION:
Hi. Do you know where I could buy a replacement remote control for my Aloha Breeze Tower Fan?

ANSWER:
Aloha Breeze fans are mass produced in China and are a low end product normally sold at places like Walmart, BigLots and K-Mart. Not the kind of places you would expect to offer replacement parts. My guess is you will be hard pressed to find what you need.

QUESTION:
can you get this fan in a 42 inch

ANSWER:
The Concept II Wet ceiling fan is only available in a 52 inch version. The indoor models are available in 44 inch...if you are planning to use it indoors. We do have some similar fans that come in smaller sizes than this. Please give us a call and we will gladly share many options with you. One would be the Modern Fan Company Altus Hugger. We can special order smaller blades for that fan as well as others.

QUESTION:
Does this fan operate on 240v in Australia?

ANSWER:
No it does not. The only major brands offering fans in 220V for export right now are Fanimation, Modern Fan Company and Hunter. You mentioned 240V, if this is the correct voltage that you need, not even 220V fans will operate with your power source. However, we have shipped quite a few fans to Australia...and those were using 220V. Why do you need 240V if I might ask?

I am thinking of purchasing the new harbor breeze 69' airspan ceiling fan with the two blades. I love the look, but am worried about the amount of airflow that will be coming from the fans.

QUESTION:
Is it possible to get this fan with 220 volt, since I am living in Germany? Would you ship, and if so, how much would it be? Thanks for your time!

ANSWER:
No, Minka Aire does not make any of the fans you see on our site in 220 volt versions. The only brands that do are Modern Fan Company, Fanimation and Hunter. You will find that Modern Fan Company and Fanimation both have some contemporary designs that are absolutely wunderbar. Take a look at them, then give us a call (or email) and we will gladly let you know which of the models you like are available in 220 volt.

QUESTION:
I bought a condo with a Temco non-vented fireplace. Model # AD29NBR A (18" log). Several of of the logs are missing. I would like to replace these, without having to buy the whole new grate and gas firebox. Can you offer any help?

ANSWER:
You cannot simply replace broken logs for a ventless gas log set unless you are replacing them with the exact same logs that originally came with the set. The logs must match the burner system exactly, otherwise...if the flame hits the logs in a way that was not intended, the gas may not burn completely and your fireplace will most likely begin emitting carbon monoxide and other toxic gases into your home. I would suggest you contact the manufacturer (who is now CFM Majestic) and ask them what you can and cannot do. We do not carry any Temco products, so we do not have access to their specifications.

QUESTION:
I notice that this fan is not energy star qualified. I like the fact that it has a 188mm motor but can you tell me how close it is to being "energy star" or as an alternative, what the operating costs would be? Thank you

ANSWER:
Each brand of fans only chooses a few models from their line to be tested for Energy Star Qualification. These testing procedures are quite costly, so they are not performed on the entire product line. The qualification has to do with the amount of AMPS the fan uses per CFM of air moved on each of the speeds. Since Minka Aire has not tested this fan for CFMs, it is not possible to answer your question precisely. I can say that the motor would most likely qualify as Energy Star if it were tested since it is very similar to other Energy Star fans. However, it is not just the efficiency of the motor that the EPA considers. The light fixture is equally of concern...and in most cases, of more concern. Since the light fixture of the Concept fan uses a 100W halogen bulb, the fan would not meet the standards of the Energy Star simply because of the wattage of the light is too high...which by the way, draws more amps than the motor does when it is on high speed. Ultimately, if you install this fan without the light fixture, it will likely cost you less than 3 cents per hour just to operate the fan...which is about the same as an Energy Star fan.

QUESTION:
Trying to identify the manufacturer. Need manual. Model 52 1987 Serial 022971 5A0 0090 Made in Taiwan Has five blades, five lights,

ANSWER:
Most fans made in Taiwan may not have a particular manufacturer indicated anywhere on the fan, so your quest is most likely futile. Fans like yours are generally imported by mass merchants like walmart or K-mart and may be may by any number of factories in China or Taiwan at any given time depending on who is awarded the contract for the next batch. Fans of any value or quality will have the name of the manufacturer clearly indicated on a label on the top of the fan...if not with some type of logo on the fan body itself. Keep in mind that a quality brand wants their name to be known, where cheaper brands would not. Might I ask what it is you are attempting to accomplish?

QUESTION:
Question: When I select a light fixture, does your order system automatically match the finish to the fan finish selected? Thanks

ANSWER:
Yes it does. If you notice the last two or three characters of the fan model will generally be the same as the light fixture...which is the finish code. Although some of the bowl style light fixtures do not necessarily need to match the finish fan since there is little or no exposed hardware, so the code may not match or may not be there at all in those cases. Regardless, only matching fixtures will show.

QUESTION:
what type of remote controller is available for the hugger 82U2D and can you offer a link to its on-line installation instructions? There will be no light fixtures ordered with this purchase. Will the WRF control work without a canopy?

ANSWER:
Casablanca does not offer a remote control option for their introductory Four Seasons hugger fan. Most hugger fans do not have remote control options because the receivers are designed to be installed in the fan canopy...and hugger fans do not have that type of installation hardware. However, there are a few hugger fans that actually come with built-in remote controls, and a couple others that can have remotes added to them. Please call us so we can show them to you and help you find the perfect fan(s) for your needs.

QUESTION:
I currently only have a two wire source of power and want to know if I would be able to control the light and fan speed

ANSWER:
Not sure if you are saying you have two hot wires or just two wires total. Either way, it does not matter because this is a pull chain fan, which means one chain will operate the fan speeds and the other the lights...independently. And yes, you can use a single hot wire for this function. The only reason you would use two hot wires would be if you wanted to install a wall control that required two hot wires. However, many wall controls and remote controls today only require a single hot wire as well.

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire Concept Wet location fan comes with a full function wall control, which means it includes a full range light dimmer, 3 speeds in forward and 3 speeds in reverse. You can also purchase a separate remote control transmitter that has the same features and will work by itself or in conjunction with the wall control.

QUESTION:
my remote has low, med, and hi for the fan but it goes on hi no matter which button i push. it worked ok at first, but that lasted only a couple weeks. what do i need to do to correct that?

ANSWER:
Well, since you did not tell me what brand of fan you own or where you purchased it, I am going to answer blindly based on the best odds from my experience. Kind of like being a psychic I guess. Anyway, I suspect that your fan came from one of the home centers...either Home Depot or Lowes...Am I correct? I say this because this is a common problem with the type of fans they sell. So, if I am correct, take the fan back and get a refund and put that money towards a better quality product. Imagine, if you are having such problems now, you will have them later...and next time, you will not be able to return the fan. If I am incorrect, please forgive me....then let me know what brand and model fan you own as well as where you purchased it.

QUESTION:
Only a wall switch comes with this fan - is there a hand held remote that is compatible? If so - which one? Also, is the item in stock - if not, what is the turnaround time? Thanks!

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire Downtown loft is a brand new fan, so at the time we published it on our site the information was incomplete. We now know that the fan is in fact compatable with a new remote control model RC212. As of this moment, we still do not have a picture of either the remote control or wall control from Minka Aire, nor do we have full details on their functionality other than we know they both in fact will reverse the fan, dim the light and offer 3 speeds in either direction. When further information becomes available, we will post it on our site. Please call us regarding the lead time for this fan since new fans like this initially become available in spurts as the first shipments arrive from over seas.

QUESTION:
What ceiling fan looks good (no light) and pushes the most air?

ANSWER:
Well...fortunately our site is one of the only sites online that allows you to search for fans by how much air the push....we call it our Airflow Rating. We rate our fans from 1 to 5 where 5 is the best airflow. However, since how a fan looks (style) is strictly subjective, I have no way of answering your question in full. What looks good to one person may look horrid to another. So, below is a link that will get you started because it will show only fans with an airflow rating of 5. Once you click on this link, you can further refine your search simply by clicking on the style or finish links on the left side of the page. If you use our advanced search, you can also sort the results by price. You can assume that the highest priced fans will look the best based on the fact that a good portion of the cost of making a fan has to do with the quality of the components and the additional steps taken to give the fan a high quality appearance. Ultimately, your best bet is simply to give us a call since our experts can help you determine which fan fits your needs best in just a matter of minutes.

QUESTION:
Do you sell a fan like the Minka Aire Concept II 44 F518 BN that has a shorter blade span? We like the simplicity of the design and the three blades, but have a tight space for the fan. Also, can the Minka I described above be activated by a wall switch?

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire Concept II is a unique fan. The smallest size it comes in is in fact a 44" blade span...which means that the blades will extend only 22" from the center of the point of installation. This is a rather small distance...so I am curious to know what the space limiation you are dealing with actually is. As far as the wall switch, you can purchases a wall control separately (Model WC210) that will work on its own or in conjunction with the included remote control. You can view this option by clicking on the tab for Controls, which is located just above the picture of the fan. Ultimately, there is only 1 other fan that is remotely similar to the Concept that comes in a smaller blade span. That fan is the Altus Hugger made by Modern Fan Company. Although the Altus Hugger is a 52" fan, they have the option to purchase both 42" and 36" blades for it, so it might work for you depending on your limiation. How small of a fan do you need? What is the actual space limitation that you are referring to? I will be happy to make a further recommendation if you get back to me on this.

In the meantime, here is a link to the Modern Fan Company Altus Hugger. To order the fan with smaller blades, just give us a call.

ANSWER:
Yes...although not currently listed on our site, Montecarlo does have a flush mount canopy kit model MC90GB which allows you to install the fan directly to the ceiling with just a canopy (no downrod). The flushmount canopy kit will reduce the overall height of the fan by about 3 inches. We can supply this part with your fan when you call to place your order.

QUESTION:
Where can I purchase a Hunter Ceiling Fan, Santa Barbara model, #23783?

ANSWER:
To the best of my knowledge, all of the Hunter Santa Barbara ceiling fans have been discontinued. They do not appear in any pricing or availablility information that we have received from hunter since 2005. However, it is possible that Hunter may still make the fan only for one of the home centers like Home Depot or Sears, but I have no way of finding out for sure...although I seriously doubt it. What is it about this particular fan that interests you?

QUESTION:
Can it be installed with a flush mount kit?...and if so, what would the ceiling clearance be. I need a fan that is decorative like this but has a clearance of about 10". I'd rather not have a hugger style. It will be in the salon of a houseboat. I want a Tuscan feel. Also, can you use a remote control if there is no wall switch for the fan? Thanks

ANSWER:
Minka Aire does have a low ceiling adapter that can be used with this fan. It is model A180-BCW. The adapter allows the fan to attach directly to the ceiling canopy elinating the downrod, which will save you about 3 inches in height. However, that will still put the bottom of the fan at about 11 1/2" from the ceiling. Keep in mind, that the blades themselves are already less than 10 inches from the ceilling...even without the adapter. However, since you are planning on installing this fan in a houseboat, I would suggest that you use a fan that is rated for use outdoors, since it will most likely be exposted to moisture. Please give us a call so we can help you find the perfect fan for your needs.

QUESTION:
Will there be enough light over a dinette table in a 12'x9' room? thank you

ANSWER:
Well, the fan uses a single 100 Watt incandescent bulb, so I would suspect it would not be sufficient for use over a dining room table. However, the amount of lighting that you require personally will differ greatly from what others need, so I must let you decide if 100 Watts of light is sufficient. If you already have a light or chandelier over the table that only uses 100 Watts and it is sufficient, then the fan will be sufficient. If your current light supplies 200 or 300 watts of light and you find it to be sufficient at its brightest setting, then obviously this fan would not provide sufficient lighting for your needs.

Hello, I am looking for electric fireplaces without heaters. If you have these available, please let me know which models to look at. Also, may I have pricing to include delivery to Baltimore, D. Thank you. Nick Pulos

None of these electric fireplaces come without a heater...it is more cost effective for the manufacturer to include the heater than to offer the same item without a heater. So, if you do not want the heater, simply do not turn it on. For pricing, please give us a call.
