Ceiling fan problem.

We bought and installed a ceiling fan Chrome in the living room. It is suspended from a 900mm extension rod and mounted between two 26 degree sloping roof beams. There is no wobbling or humming noise from this fan. We then bought another identical ceiling fan, but white. It is mounted horizontally between two ceiling beams in a bedroom. The mounting is very sound. This first one Wobbled greatly and had a noisy hum. It appeared non-concentric on rotation. We returned this fan for another Arctic fan, white. This replacement fan still wobbles and has some humming noise, but much less than the first, but is still unacceptable. By 'wobble' I DON'T mean from side to side that's minimal. I mean that the vertical spacing between the two sections of the fan motor casing varies on rotation. Can you advise please? Is this a bad batch white? Or is there something wrong that we have done this time in the bedroom version?

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.

SOURCE: Hampton Bay Ceiling fan wobbling

The fan came with one or more clips and some small weights that easily stick to the blade. Now with the clip you put it in one of the blades, starting from the far end and coming inwards, little by little. Try putting the clip in the middle of the fan and turn on the fan and see if it continues wobbling, if it continues wobbling try moving it to left and right and every time turn on the fan and see what happens. When you find the correct spot, there you glue the small weight.

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 bought and installed my new Westingouse turbo swirl in my kitchen. The blades are knocking my cupboard doors when I open the doors. Is there a way to shorten my fan so that it stands nearer to the c


Ceiling fans often come with two lengths of tubing to mount on different height ceilings. If you have it mounted with the long tube you may be able to remove that and install a shorter one. Alternatively you may be able to shorten the tube. If you are hitting the cupboards you are not centered in the room and it really should be, to be most effective.

Uneven cieling solution please


Use laser level to find level line around room.
Figure out how you are going to change ceiling lights as part of any plan.

1) Put furring strips across room 16" on center.
Use shims or spacers under furring strip at each nailing point to keep level.
Re-install ceiling electrical boxes to match new ceiling height.
Install new sheetrock.

2) Install suspended ceiling grid.
The cross grid is held with wires attached to old ceiling.
Plan for electric lighting by installing can light fixtures or drop in 2'x2' or 2'x4' fluorescent lights.

3) Float smooth, and prime ceiling.
Have artist paint cloud scene on ceiling to disguise unevenness.

Floor model of a ceiling fan ... think about that for a minute!

I have to say no, you cannot do this. It may be possible but not without a lot of pain and extra expense. I have installed hundreds of fans. You may possibly be able to shorten the pipe that holds the fan but to actually mount it to the ceiling? You will have to have the ceiling hardware to do this. There goes the price benefit even if you can find the proper adapter/ceiling hardware.

Try shortening the pipe that suspends. You may find joy there.

Thanks for your question today. And thanks for the smile ... floor model ceiling fan :-)

a celing fan should only be mounted on a box rated for a ceiling fan. This is a NEC code requirement. You could remove your existing box, and install a new box rated for a ceiling fan. You install the adjustable cross bar, and then attach the box to it. It also has stronger threaded inserts for the fan attaching bolts. Better than having a fan flying through the room.

Hello, Just had a casabalanca 84u45d ceiling fan installed. Seems to low. Installer said cannot go any closer to ceiling.Store said it should. Who is correct.Need as close to ceiling as apossible.tks


According to the model # you gave the fan has a 2-3" down rod. You can not get ride of that or you can not mount the fan. here is a manual for the fan that you listed. On page 3 you will see how to mount to ceiling. If this is not the fan give me the right one so I can see if it can be flush mounted to the ceiling.
