Question about Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade Fan, Chestnut, Autumn Mist

1 Answer

Antigua Plus 56" blades brush light bowl & fan wobbles too much.

The down-rod seems to be too long and the fan wobbles way too much on medium and high speed. The clearance between the bowl and fan blades is practically nil if the bowl is installed firmly, causing the blades to scrape the bowl with every revolution. There also seems to be no balancing kit with this fan and Home Depot hasn't been much help so far. We love the fan but it isn't functional so far.

I learned that your Antigua Plus 56" Ceiling Fan was manufactured by King of Fans, a reputable company out of Florida that offers great customer support for their fans.

King of Fans website is: http://www.kingoffans.com
There are 3 FAQ's to read that can help you there about wobble, the proper size of the down-rod, and the fan hanging straight. Also the fan's description tells you what should be in the product's box. There should have been a balancing kit!

If you do not have your Owner's Guide, you can download it free! At any rate, carefully peruse it and follow the guide instructions, it seems that something has not been properly completed and or parts are missing. If parts are missing call customer service at 1-800-330-3267, and concisely describe the problem. I have found them to be wonderful at their customer service over the years.

Regarding the clearance between the bowl and blades, my first guess is that the blades may be installed either upside down, not pushed in fully, or pushed in too far. Regarding wobble, be sure to check page 9 of the Owner's Guide.

Best of luck! Your fan is gorgeous!

Fan only wobbles on high....recently 'bumped'


Check all your screws especially the set screw at top of fan that goes into rod. Blades could be warped from the water. Ball of fan not set in bracket correctly. When your buying a fan, look for blade pitch.13 degree or better is best. You shouldn't have to use the fan on high unless it's a low-end fan with a low blade pitch. It's costing you more money to run the fan on high. Sorry to get so preachy, I'm a fan dealer .

I bought this fan and bought a 60 inch hunter downrod it dosent fit into the fan homedepot said they are all standard but no go should i grind it down


what about it doesn't fit? I'd say it should fit. Is it threaded? Is the fan threaded? Are the setscrews on the fan backed all the way out? Is the rod that goes through the top of the fan and the downrod out?

Will a smaller blade on a ceiling fan cause problems


Interesting situation.. not many people want to down-size a fan. Anyway, reducing the size of the fan blade shouldn't cause a problem - as long as the pitch or angle of the blade remains the same or is less than the original. Increasing the angle with a smaller blade could actually move MORE air than what the motor was designed to do - resulting in overloading and shortening the motor's life in the best case scenario. Worst case scenario - well, anything for electric devices in a worst case scenario usually involves fire, burns and even death (though not likely to happen).

Prior to starting, make sure all the blades are the same in every way including: length, width, angle and weight. A warped blade can cause wobble, too. Stand on a ladder and spin the fan by hand. Look for a blade that is tipped up or hangs lower than the others. Make adjustments as needed to correct (it may not be possible to correct a warped blade - so be forewarned). If any of the variables listed in the first sentence of this paragraph are different from those of the other blades, wobble and motor noise will result. Neither condition should be allowed to exist longer than absolutely necessary. You can minimize these effects by operating the fan at a slower speed. Generally, the blades should be pretty close in all of these variables - but a wobbly fan indicates an imbalance. Weights placed on fan blades can help correct wobble - but can be tricky to determine which blade is the cause.

Good luck!

TRying to balance ceiling fan but there is only one balance clip that came with the product and it is difficult to fix the wobble


Ballancing a ceiling fan is a trial and error situation. you can use the clip and place it on each blade untill you get the quietest opperation. Then you use the stick on weights and remove the clip. First make sure that the fan is solidly mounted . If the fan is loose , all your adjustment will be useless. You may have to go thru the process of applying the clip and wieghts a couple times to get the fan correctly ballanced

I have had a Hampton Bay Antigua Plus 56'' ceiling fan for about four years now. The blades have sagged so much that now I cannot even put the globe over the lights. I only want to know if there is any way...


Try not to take that person serious. I would tighten the screws on the brackets around the fan. Only a phillips screw driver needed for this task. The blades on mine are hardened wood.lol.
However, the problem I have is with finding a replacement bracket:
ST306-002-22
I found that Hampton Bay is a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Depot (look it up). That being said, I contacted Home Depot and the associate had no protocol in getting me in a better direction.
The problem I have is the lacking of integrity shown by Home Depot in this particular situation. I knew nothing about Hampton Bay ceiling fans being that of a subsidiary onto Home Depot. I am a potential customer to the Depot but, will attempt to research all methods possible to save myself an unnecessary trip to flirt with possibility of a non-fitting universal bracket. BALLS!!!

New fan with downrod wobbles when on high speed and low speed. Does not wobble on medium speed. How do I stop the wobble completely?


Measure from the same spot on the ceiling to the outer most tip of each blade (by rotating to the tape). The distance should be the same, if not check fan blade screws for tightness. You might have to bend the fan blade brackets a little to get the same measurements, if the screws are all tight. If all this lokks good, you might to use a balancing kit...just follow the instructions...it's not too bad to do

Cannot stop the ceiling fan from wobbling. Have


you still have a blade that is out of balance. mesure each blade from the bottom side end to the celing in one spot. Do this for each blade when you find the one that is closest to the celing then you have to place the wheight on the edge of that blade then spin it to make the right adjustment then seta stick on weight where the temp. weight is at
