Removing Hunter ceiling fan model # 28066

I have an older (~10 yrs) Hunter ceiling fan (the model number is 28066) mounted with a 24'' downrod, and I need to remove it and replace the downrod with a shorter, 12'' downrod. The manual provided on Hunter's website ( http://www.hunterfan.com/uploadedfiles/Support/Owner_Manuals/41343.pdf ) seems to suggest that the downrod is permanently affixed to the piece that hangs through the cover (see pg. 10) , and furthermore the piece that covers the mounting plate seems to be flush with the ceiling and I'm not sure how to remove it, completely without damaging the ceiling, because after it is unscrewed it does not open far enough to allow access to the screws on the mounting plate. The fan was not mounted through the attic, so I am at a loss as to how to take down the fan, and once I do, I don't know how I'll be able to replace the downrod. Any help is appreciated; thanks.

SOURCE: Access for disassembly

the vanity ring usuallu comes off one of two ways.

It may be held on with 1 or 2 small screws.When you loosen the screws you can turn the ring a little bit and it comes off. Sometimes you have to remove the screws and the ring will come off.

The 2nd method requires turning the ring counterclockwise and it comes off. If this is the way yours comes off, you can usually see 2 dimples on the top of the ring that fit into matching slots.

SOURCE: 96 or108 inch downrod for a hunter ceiling fan

FIrst, go to the Hunter website and see if they make one. If they do, then go to their "Where to Buy" link, and see who sells Hunter products, and call them to see if in stock.

If worse comes to worse, got to a hardware store and buy a piece of black iron gas pipe the correct length with threads on each end. You will probably have to get cross holes drilled through the threads to match the short stub pipe that comes with the fan.
Buy some spray paint while there that matches the color you want.
Buy some stranded wire, enough to run the length of the pipe, plus the length of the fan, plus excess to extend beyond the end of the pipe and out the junction box of the fan. It would be best to buy a length of the following colors to match what is already in the fan, and that should be white, blue, and black.

Once home, clean the pipe with solvent, then paint to match with the paint you bought. After it dries, push the wires down through the pipe, and rest the fan near where the fan end of the pipe will be.

Open the junction box of the fan and pull the factory wires through the center shaft. Take the wires extending from the pipe and slide through the hollow fan shaft until they extend out the bottom. Cut each of the factory wires short, then strip the end, and the end of the new wire of the same color, and wire nut together. Do this for the remaining 2 wires.

Screw the pipe into the top of the fan, install the cross pin and cotter.

Move the hanging components from the supplied fan hanging stub to the new pipe, making sure to install exactly as removed from the stub.

Follow the installation directions from here.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my hunter fan light can't be turned on/off with the light switch

The switch will only turn the power on to the fan/light. You have to use the remote to dimm the light & change the speeds. You should be able to install it on the wall next to the switch so you can turn on your light when entering the room.

The fan is installed but fell down or looks like it was not completed , what do i do to screw the base from the wall to the base of the fan ?


In a typical ceiling installation, the fan assembly is attached to a downrod which, in turn, is securely attached to a junction box in the ceiling.

Where is the model number of a flush mount ceiling fan?


Where can I locate the model number of the fan?
There's a gold sticker on top of your fan's motor (the part that faces the ceiling once it is installed). Holding a mirror above the fan motor can help you read the numbers. It may also be found on the parts guide that was packed with your fan or on the box that contained your fan. You're looking for a 5-digit number and it sometimes has a suffix...i.e. 22345A

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 (http://www.hunterfan.com) 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:

Remote does not do anything, it has a brand new battery. red led works, but no action on the fan or light. thank you


when you remove the battery cover, there is a set of white switches called dip switches. they can be up or down. the transmitter and receiver have to be set to the same code. both have to have the same combinations of up and down switches. the receiver is usually mounted behind the canopy on the fan where the downrod goes into the electrical box. if the remote came with the fan, check hunters website to download an owners manual to tell you where the receiver switches are.
