Hi, I'm trying to find a hanger bracket for this fan (I bought it used). I believe the part number is H-13 but cannot find it anywhere. Not only does the fan hang from it but it also has an outer ring onto which the cap (that covers the wires, etc) attaches to. Thanks!

make sure light switch is off. start by unscrewing the fan blades. take out bulbs and bulb covers etc. once all thats down the fan and light switch cover has three screws you can take out and unplug it to get it out of the way. look around the base for some more screws to take out and remove the big cover thats covering the motor. get it out of the way. now you will see the bracket thats holding the motor in place. remove them screws and bolts, but be careful and ready, the motor is heavy, and as it comes down, normally hamptom bay has a coat hanger type hook that will let you hook the hanging motor on the hook long enuff to disconnect the wires ONE AT AT TIME and then put the wire nut back on it just for safety. when they are all disconnected , you can un hang the motor , and then inspect the new fan bracket, it probably fits the same hanger. but if not, you need to take the bracket motor hangar down and get the wires out of it. if the light switch is off IT WONT SHOCK YOU. just dont touch the bare wires to your hands ANYWAY. if they touch each other thats ok. IF THE WALL SWITCH IS OFF. ok now its removed.
Hello, your installation will determine if you can use another type of hanging bracket. If you require that the fan must be mounted close to the ceiling there might be a way to install the remote by using plastic wire ties to sucure the receiver. There are many fans that state NOT FOR USE WITH REMOTE. Please check to see if your fan is one of thoes. If ceiling height is not a issue then a new hanger bracket should do the trick. Make sure that the bracket and the installation location will support the weight of your fan. SAFETY FIRST
They sell brackets at home stores, but I have nailed a 2x4 between ceiling joists & mounted an electrical box at proper height. If you aren't good with electrical, get an electrican to run power for you.
The hanger must be SOLID & the wiring GOOD.
The CODE SWITCH RECEIVER should be located in the CANOPY (the bracket hanger). !!WARNING!! YOU ARE ENTERING A HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL ZONE!!
It will be tucked in among the electrical wiring and inside the hanger bracket.
Simply pull it out and you will see the CODE SWITCHES. There are 16 CODE combinations that can be used. Both the REMOTE and the RECEIVER MUST be set with the SAME CODE.
Good luck. :)
It could be that a neighbor has a ceiling fan with the same CODE that yours is set at. It does actually occur.
Try setting the REMOTE(Transmitter) AND the RECEIVER, located tucked in among the electrical wiring inside the CANOPY which is also called the 'Hanger Bracket', to a different but SAME CODE for each device. The RECEIVER, which will have four 'dip switches', as does the REMOTE, will be a small rectangular box with a short antenna from one end.
Good luck. :)
Start over again!
Make sure that the HANGER BRACKET is properly and securely attached to the ceiling joists.
Then make sure that the HANGER BALL of the fixture is properly seated in the HANGER BRACKET.
Make sure the SUPPORT PIN is properly seated in the grooves in the top of the hanger ball.
Make sure that ALL the BLADES are firmly SECURED with TIGHT screws both at the BLADE ARMS AND at the MOTOR.
Remove the BALANCING WEIGHTS from the blades.
Make sure that the DOWN-ROD is indeed VERTICAL and not BINDING.
Turn on the fan in the SLOW mode and let it operate for a few minutes. Is the "shake and noise" issue still present? If NOT, turn it to 'medium speed and if still no problem turn it to high speed.
However, If the problem is STILL present, turn the fan OFF. Look closely and carefully at the LEVEL of the blades. You should be able to determine if one or more of the blades appears to be out of level. Use the minimum amount of balancing weight on the blades, and not every blade may need a weight. You do not want to contribute to the problem here.
If, after you have gone through all of the steps suggested here, the problem persists, then you have done about all you can do as a consumer to make this fan operate satisfactorily. DOCUMENT the actions you have taken in an effort to remedy the issue on your own. At this point load it up and return it to the place you purchased it for replacement or refund. Good luck. :)
