If this is a pull-chain model, then clicking is often caused by the pull-chains knocking against the fan housing.

If it is not the chain , then the fan is probably out of balance. In that case the problem is with installation. In this case you will need to double check the balance, and some times to reinstall the fan to eliminate the clicking.

If the fan is still shaking a lot once it gets going, it may not be supported well enough. In that case you can use a retrofit brace like this one, available at any hardware store or home center. It slides right into the hole and is very easy to install.

To balance the fan, follow the instructions here.

If my comment had been helpful, then please do not forget to accept the solution.

Thanks.

possibly but it is doubtful. It is designed to work all the time but it is possible to fail during use. Replace it or complete fan unit as the motor may be faulty causing the capacitor to overload.

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!

I just need to know how to install this in an old house to replace a ceiling fixture and install a ceiling fan without having to make a huge hole in my ceiling. I can't find any instructions on the model...


If you're trying to replace a light fixture with a ceiling fan. The most important thing is to make sure that the electrical box in the ceiling can support the weight and momentum of a ceiling fan. If it's an old house, as you say, I suspect it's not. However, there are support kit, that you can but from most home centers, that will install without having to make a "huge hole" in your ceiling. If you have an attic above this room, accessing and beefing up the support of the electrical box would not be difficult. If you don't have that luxury, then the support kit is your best solution, as you don't need to have access to an attic above.

As far as the Model # 22200 is concerned ... Since you didn't mention what it was, I don't have a clue.

In any event, I hope this helps you in installing the ceiling fan. Please let me know and if you would please rate my response to you. Thank you!

We have a hunter ceiling fan with light kit. When we turn on the light all light blink. What could be causing this?


a lose wire in the fan/light housing. the motion of the fan is moving it creating a short. I wouldnt us it till it gets repaired. Its a pretty basic unit, kill the power, and drop the light housing and check all connections. If not in housing, check connection in the ceiling, you got a lose wire somewhere.

Fan won't turn on, dont know where switch is


I looked up the owners manual for your fan at the following site: http://www.hunterfan.com/search.aspx?search=20763
Click on the pdf file labeled owner's.This manual indicates there should be a pull chain for turning on and off the fan. Maybe the chain has broken off up inside the fan. You can follow the instructions in this manual to take the fan apart and replace the pull chain.
