I'm not completely sure what the fan mounting bracket (that screws to the electrical box) looks like on this model, and I'm not sure what type of remote you have, but remote receivers usually slide in between the ceiling and that bracket (slide in with antenna wire first). Or the other type goes inside the very bottom of the fan, the part where a light kit gets attached (these receivers look like a donut).

WHERE THE REMOTE CONTROL TRANSMITTER IS LOCATED IN THE CEILING FAN


The transmitter is the piece you hold in your hand, the reciever is the part that fits inside the ceiling fan. It usually goes inside where a lamp attaches to the bottom of the fan.

How to fix a wobbly ceilng fan


wobbly cieling fan
1. make sure all mounting screws between the fan and the ceiling are tight. There is probably an electrical box mounted in the cieling that the fan is screwed into. I would turn the fan light on and then keep flipping breakers off, on at a time ,to see which breaker turns off the fan light. leave the fan light breaker off and you can unmount the fan from the cieling electrical box. The electrical box may have several holes in it for mounting screws and prehaps there are some holes left empty in the box that you can put more wood screws into to help keep the electrical box more firmly mounted and that may help lessen the wobble.
Its ok to bend the electrical wiring aside to put more screws in. Just be reasonably gentle with the wiring and then bend it back somewhat to where it was before you started. make sure that wiring does not get pinched between the fan and the electrical box and that all wiring resides inside the box.
#2 This is harder to do. you need to balance the blades for the fan ,similar to how a lawnmower blade is balanced after sharpening and before remounting the lawnmower blade on the mower. also kinda like balancing a car tire. I have a lawnmower blade balancing fixture that i bought at the lawnmower shop, but i dont know if there is a fan blade balancing fixture that you could buy from somewheres. Maybe try google.com,bing.com or ask.com and type into the search box fan blade balancer
or fan blade balancing fixture or fan blade balancing jig.
PLEASE read the directions or SPECIFICATIONS before you buy the fan blade balancer, only to find out that it only fits 9 inch diameter fan blades, and your blade is 2 4or 36 inches long.
The balancer may have to fit a certain diameter hole at the center
of the fan blade. When you finally find out which side of the fan blade is heavy, you have to grind , with an electric grinding wheel, some material off the heavy side of the blade so that it is the same wieght as the light side of the blade.
Try to imagine a cone shaped center[like step drills] like the capital letter V ,only up side down, so that the point is up. ON the underside of the inverted V is a needle tiped post that upside down V can pivot in any direction on. The hole in the middle of a lawnmower blade is centered somewheres on the outside of the inverted V, depending on the diameter of the hole in the lawnmower blade. The heavy side of the mower blade will go down and may touch the level asphault or the table top, depending on where you placed the balancing fixture. THen i would grind off metal until the heavy side can up to be level with the light side of the mower blade and it was considered balanced.
an appliance repair parts store may sell fan balancers, but if the would fit your cieling fan, better ask before you waiste your money on something that wont work for what you want.

Try calling up customer service of the manufacturor of your ceiling fan and ask about repair service for your brand fan.
see what repair service has to say, im sure many others have asked them about wobbling fans.
so they should have all the answers down pat.
Two more thoughts.
1.
.MAKE SURE ALL SCREWS THAT HOLD FAN BLADES ON TO THE HUB ARE THERE AND are TIGHT. one loose fan blade mounting screw or one missing fan blade screw will unbalance the whole thing and cause wobble.
2. the fan motor shaft bearing could be worn out or round or even egg shaped. If this is the cause, the motor must be diaassembled and new fan shaft bearings installed or the fan motor must be replaced.

good luck and have fun!

I purchased a 'Turn of the Century-Apollo' model 355-6786 cieling fan. The only problem is no fan blade mounting bolts and nuts, instead I have 2 packs of mounting screws. I've dialed the Customer Service Department to no avail. Is there an unpublished WEB site?

Reciever won't fit installing Hampton Bay Midili 44 in fan


I had the same problem. Instruction manual is awful. Doesn't mention anything about how to fit the huge yellow receiver either into (a) the mounting bracket or in (the canopy.
After numerous meltdowns, I finally figured it out. Instead of running the live wires through the center of the mounting bracket, run them on the side. The mount bracket to ceiling. If you try to run them through center, you will probably run out of room, and the Receiver will not fit. Once mounted, drop the pin into the mount and turn it until it locks into position.
Next, slide the Receiver in the tight space at top the pin, and just below top of mounting bracket. It will *barely* fit. Then connect all your wires with the wire nuts. Wrap in electrical tape just to be extra careful.
I could *not* get my wires to push up into the ceiling box because the Receiver was blocking the entrance. So I tucked them on the sides, and then lifted the canopy up and finished the installation. All the wires were hidden inside the canopy.
Hope that helps. And hope you haven't lost your mind yet.
God forbid they explain how to instal the receiver, or include a battery.

How do I get my hampton bay antigua fan down from the ceiling


first you will need a ladder and a screwdriver/phillips a couple wire nuts or electrical tape.at the "top" of the fan you will see a bowl shaped cover it will have usually no more than two screws in it..loosen or remove those screws to access the fan hanger inside.once you get that far inside you will see several wires .undo each wire seperatly and cover with a wire nut or electrical tape(please make sure your power is off to that circuit) once you have unhooked all the wires from the fan and secured them out of the way. lift the fan out of the hanger itself (sometimes it is easier to remove each blade from the motor housing before removing the fan from its hanger ) those screws can be found at the base of each blade on the motor housing..If you are moving or adding a cieling light be sure to remove both parts of the fan hanger..the second part will still be attached to the cieling..usually two screws holding it into place..if just replaacing the fan,,you can sometimes leave the second part there and hang the new fan with it..

I have a 4 blade HB cieling fan. 2 above 2 blades. Where to put the reciever seems to be no room. Instructions were missing.


The receivers in my 3 hampton bay fans actually slides into the upper portion of the hanging bracket ( the thing you screwed into your ceiling fixture that the fan hangs off of)..
It fits rather nicely once you make room for it with the wiring etc
Hope this helps.

Wireless ceiling fan


there are remote controlled fan out on the market.

there are also devices the make it remote, but the cord is for power so i dont think you can hide the wires to much without going thru the ceiling.

if you have no access of the cieling then the wire must be there for powering of the fan run along the wall, try stapling the wire to the cieling like around the egdes of the ceiling then perhap painting the wire the same color of the ceiling.

you do not have much option to work with.

you have to make sure you buy the right remote controll

but it still need power.

http://www.csnceilingfans.com/Ceiling-Fan-Remote-Controls-C14870.html

there a site for remote controls for fan or just buy a new fan all together. im sure they put the plug there for a reason because if you use the fan alot they do go bad.

Good luck

I went ahead and hooked up the wires, and then zip stripped the wireless receiver to the side of the motor mount. Works fine and fits inside the canopy (motor cover).

Make sure the power wires from the ceiling mount are still in the electric box. Then have them come from the side near the screw mounting area. In otherwords, not through the center hole. In the center of the black metal part - there is where you put the reciever. It will fit literally resting on the black metal.
