Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. White Huntington III Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

I want to hang the fan on a cathedral ceiling with a steep slope. Two questions, is the angle of the slope measured from vertical or horizontal,and does anyone make a kit for my fan to hang because the the ceiling mounting plate that comes with the fan is not sufficient, the fan hangs at an angle because the slope is to great?

The slope is measured off the horizontal plane. A 45 degree slope would rise 12 inches for every 12 inches of horizontal travel in this example. If the slope is too great try checking kits made by Fanimation. The Fanimation SCK52 - 52 Degree Ceiling Slope Ceiling Fan Kit will go up to a 52 degree angle ceiling and will fit most downrods. The hampton bay fans are very popular and should work just fine with this kit.

We just had 2 56inch Antigua Hampton Bay fans with 5 Leaf blades installed. The air flow is poor. We have 15 ft. cathedral ceiling on an angle. A 3 ft. extension rod was used on each fan.


ceiling fans have a direction switch in the cover just above the fan motor
it is very possible that during the installation this switch was moved to the wrong direction for the fans to blow down
get a good step ladder and with the fan off check the fan switch and move it to a new position
there should be a small tag saying rev/fwd or up/down
when looking up at the fan , it should be rotating clockwise

I have a Minerva 44" Fan. I have Vaulted Ceilings with a 12-12 pitch. The down rod is 3/4 in. What slope ceiling adapter is recommended ?


Mike, a 12/12 pitch is 45 degrees. You may have to use a little math to figure out how far down to hang the 44" fan to keep from hitting the angle of the ceiling. Geometry specifically. Remember the A sq + B sq = C sq for figuring the hypoteneuse of a right triangle?? If the ceiling fan is 44", the base (A) of the right triangle is 22" with NO CLEARANCE to the angled ceiling. A 45 degree angle dictates the base and the height are equal, so height (B) of the triangle is also 22" with NO CLEARANCE. If you want a few inches of clearance, extend the height by 4" and there should be enough clearance to allow the fan operation.

I would suggest playing with the figures before you buy the extension rods though. The simple answer to you question remains however...45 degrees.

How to install Hampton bay fan #CF 004-52 on a slanted ceiling


Hi,

I'm an electrician and can help you with your question.

Most (if not all ceiling fans) are designed to hang from most ceilings - flat or angled. This is done through the use of a molded plastic ball secured to the downrod of the fan assembly, that will allow the fan to "self-level" in the hanger

A special "hoop like" hanger is secured to the fan rated electrical box that allows the fan to hang straight down - providing that your ceiling isn't at a real freakish angle - all by itself. The only other thing to watch for is the blades. This is especially true if the new fan has larger blades or a shorter downrod than the old fan. Make sure that the fan blades will clear the ceiling (and enything else for that matter) when running. Otherwise, you will need to use a longer downrod to allow the fan to hang a little lower. Make sure it is not too low to prevent it from striking people walking below it.

Review the installation manual and check out the support "hoop" for the electrical box and the downrod with the plastic ball on the end (may require assembly of the ball to the downrod). You can install the support hoop and hang the downrod to make sure you understand how it works without assembling the rest of the fan.

If you have any problems, you should contact Home Depot (Hampton Bay is a Home Depot house brand) for support.

Good luck!

It is a device used in measuring and sometimes drawing angles?based on trigonometry


Could you mean a sextant? I found other tools of measuring angles at a
distance before I reread your question and noticed it was under
science and astronomy. Most of the following tools are used to measure
angles of stars, planets and locations.


Sextant
=======
"A sextant is a measuring instrument used to measure the angle of
elevation of a celestial object above the horizon. Making this
measurement is known as sighting the object or taking a sight. The
angle, and the time when it was measured, are used to calculate a
position line on a nautical or aeronautical chart. A common use of the
sextant is to sight the sun at noon to find one's latitude. See
celestial navigation for more discussion.

The scale of a sextant has a length of 1/6 of a full circle; 60°,
hence the sextant's name. An octant is a similar device with a shorter
scale, 1/8 of a circle; 45°, which was in use until 1767 when it was
quickly replaced by the sextant. In 1767 the first edition of the
nautical almanac tabulated lunar distances, enabling navigators to
find the current time from the angle between the sun and the moon.
This angle is however sometimes larger than 90°, and thus not possible
to measure with an octant."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sextant

"Practical celestial navigation usually requires a chronometer to
measure time, a sextant to measure the angles, an almanac giving
angular schedules of celestial objects and a set of sight reduction
tables to help perform the math. With sight reduction tables, the only
math required is addition and subtraction. Most people can master the
procedure after a day or two of instruction and practice."
http://www.algebra.com/algebra/about/history/Celestial-navigation.wikipedia

Froogle has many sextants and books for sale:

An angle gauge?
===============
"The gauge is used to tally trees in variable area plot sampling. The
variable plot method is generally faster than fixed area plot
sampling. The gauge usually has basal area per acre factors (BAF) of
5 to 40. The average diameter of the trees to be sampled is what
determines which BAF to use. The angle gauge comes in several shapes
and serves the same purpose as a cruising prism (see cruising prism
below). 2004 price range: $10-$33."
http://ext.nrs.wsu.edu/handtools/tools/measurements/#clin



A clinometer?
=============
"Optical Reading Clinometer
Model No. PM-5/360 PC
Measures:Altitude angle/Percent slope
Heavy-duty clinometer for measuring vertical angles. Clinometer has
two scales: angle in degrees above or below horizontally level or
percent slope. Sighting allows user to simultaneously view object and
read slope."
http://www.pge.com/003_save_energy/003c_edu_train/pec/toolbox/tll/tool_catalog/misc_instru.shtml

"Measuring with a Clinometer

A clinometer is a tool that can help you to measure the angular height
of the Moon more accurately than with your fists."
http://www.learner.org/channel/workshops/lala/moonjactivities.html


A protractor?
=============
"Use tape to hinge two rulers together end to end at a 90
degree angle. Hold one ruler so that it points straight out
to the horizon and the other one points to the straight up
to the zenith. Tape a protractor to the rulers so that the
base is on the horizon line and the zenith line cuts the 90
degree mark.

To determine the altitude of the North Star where you live,
hold the rulers horizontally at eye level. Look at the North
Star and move the ruler to point at it.

The number of degrees or altitude of the North Star can be
read on the protractor."
http://spikesworld.spike-jamie.com/science/astronomy/c421-03.html


A transit?
==========
"These units are for the serious builder or contractor who requires
greater accuracy. These instruments are designed with a heavy-duty
dome shaped head that holds a double ball bearing center, giving the
user 5 minute readouts. Model 300B has a 1° vertical arc and two
leveling vials. Units use a 3-1/2 x 8 thread."
http://historywired.si.edu/object.cfm?ID=186

http://www.contractor-books.com/CB/Optical_Levels/Optical_Levels.htm?source=google


"Set up for the class five angle measuring exercises. Get each
participant to measure each angle. Rule out any clearly wrong
measurments; average the remainder. Now score each participant on how
little his/ her readings vary from the class's average.

An alternative test for your transit is to go to a large field. Along
one edge, mark perhaps 5 locations all in a straight line, perhaps 50
feet apart. (Use a longer distance if you can measure it accurately,
and space allows. (You can see they are in line by looking along it!)
About 150 feet from the baseline, at a point perpendicular to it's
middle, stick a pole in the ground. (The location does not have to be
precise.) Now measure angles between the baseline and the pole at each
of your locations. Next, prepare a map of what you have measured.
Start by drawing a line on a piece of paper. Mark 5 evenly spaced
points along it. Draw the angles you recorded. The lines going away
from the baseline should all met at one point if your readings are
accurate.

Remember: Any measuring device must be able to return the same reading
every time it measures the same angle, weight, length, etc. It must
give the answer in usable units.

With the transit, a major element in achieving success will be your
skill in devising something that will allow you to point directly at
the distant objects which define the direction of the two arms of the
angle.

How you read off how far around your pointer has swung will be another
critical area."

I am going to put pea-stone all over a sloping hill .. How do I stop the pebbles from all landing on the bottom in a pile?


That depends entirely on the pea gravel and the slope of the hill. Read the Wikipedia entry on "angle of repose". Pea gravel typically has an angle of repose of 45 degrees or less. If you hill is less steep than 40 degrees you will probably be OK. Otherwise, you would need some retaining walls to reduce this angle. (Probably not what you had in mind.) Best thing to do is go to the source of your pea gravel and measure the slope of the pile it's in. This will be the maximum angle of repose for that material. Compare this to your hillside. If the hillside is at least 5 degrees less steep, you should be OK, unless you will expect foot or vehicle traffic on the pea gravel - in which case you would need at least a 15 degree margin.

An trigonometry wordproblem


Hi there,

Using the measurements you have given and calculating the others as follows:

Angle A= 30 degrees
Side b= 900 metres
Angle B= 60 degrees
Side b= 1558.845 metres

Therefore length of the slope = 1,800.0000000000002 metres (side c)

Hope this helps. Regards, James

Similar problem: Does Hampton Bay Vaulted Ceiling Mount exist?


Ok so here is the deal. No there does not seem to be a Hampton Bay specific mount. The mount that comes standard in most of the Hampton Bay fans can handle the angle of most standard (read: small) angles. I do not know if it will be the case with all Hunter products, but the adapter for the Hunter fan that I replaced, worked with my new Hampton Bay. So now, I have from the downrod up is from the original Hunter fan. Hope this helps.

My ceiling fan recently began to shake and squeak. I tightened the 2 visible 'hand'' screws and it seems to have resolved the problem but I noticed the blades hang at different lengths from the ceiling 11...


This is might not really be a problem ,but i would check if there is some 'give' on the mounting and that if you move the same blade 180 degrees you have the same measurement.If so then the other blades need to be adjusted to this same measurement which can be acheived by using shims or washers .What is important though is also to make sure the fan is in balance and not rocking from side to side as this can lead to wear problems and essentially shorten the fan life.

Hope I have resolved you question, but please leave positive feedback if so , as it still takes time to answer questions and it would just be nice to know if I have helped.
