As long as the other down rod fits and matches up there should be no problems.

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


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 recently purchased THE DRACO CEILING FAN, Model number 3220. I noticed that this fan weighs 19.96 kgs (44 lbs). For information purposes, can you explain why is it that this fan is so heavy that it has...

Some fan models create a strong wind. These usually have somewhat shorter, more slanted blades.
In science we say there is a equal and opposite force to any force (Newton's third law as I remember). Therefore when creating a strong wind, much larger force (compared to other fans) is exerted on these blades. To avoid swaying of the fan due to this force, the fan is made heavier.
Although this type of fans are rare these days, it was common in good old days.
Hope this answers your question. If it does please rate my answer.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Where can I purchase a 3/4" downrod coupler for a

From your friendly neighborhood electrician - any electric supply (a business supplying parts to
the electrical & HVAC trade) will either carry Hunter parts, or at the very least be able to
order the parts - why: Hunter is manufactered in the USA. Nearly every other brand of ceiling
fan you'll find at your neighborhood Home Depot or Lowes is manufactured in China.
The typical ceiling fan will come with parts for two configurations: (1) flush, and (2) a optional
3-inch downrod, but commercial installations will somtimes use extended downrods.

The Hunter web site ( catalog shows available downrods in several
lengths: 12", 18", 24", 36", 48", 60", and 72".

I found Hunter downrod specifics in the online "core products catalog," at:

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...

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.
