First you must see if the blade is uni direction only or bi directional, if it is bidirectional change wiring order, if it is uni directional sorry no chance

Usually, there is a switch on the fan housing to accomplish this.

Original thermo fan blew the blade off. bought after market thermo fan but doesnt work with the original plug. does the have to have the polarity reversed or am I missing something?

fan blades are profiled (as in a aircraft wing) so that the air is drawn through the radiator . IF the fan blades are incorrect then reversing the polarity will bot be as effective as it needs to be.. So check that the fan blades will work in the right direction and replace the plug or cut and splice the wires to reverse polarity .

Hunter ceiling fan 22450 no reverse switch manual says there is.

The reverse switch usually is in the lamp housing directly under the motor. With a vaulted ceiling installation, you would need to use a ladder to get access to the switch

Can not find directions to reverse fan rotation for summer

it should be a simple slide switch on the side of the housing that moves up and down to change the direction of rotation of the fan motor and blades. look at the manual that came with the fan to make sure it has this feature but i personally have never seen a fan without one.

How do I reverse the direction that my condenser fan is blowing?

You would have to replace the fan blade with one with the opposite pitch. In other words a fan that is a mirror image of the one in place. You cannot reverse the flow by flipping the fan blades over.
Why do you want to reverse the direction? I can think of no benefit in doing so. But then again you posted this under a Water Filtration heading?

How do I reverse the direction of the fan blades to counter-clockwise on the fan? The fan is a Hampton Bay ''Clarington'' with a remote control.

There is a small black switch on the switch housing directly under the blades. When the fan is completely off, move the switch to the opposite direction.
