Question about Hunter 22451 The Brookline Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan
This is just poor engineering. Obviously you pull the chain down to operate, but the pull switch is mounted sideways on the fan so without the light you would have to pull at a 90° angle to operate. With the light installed the problem worsens as the chain is threaded back to the middle of the unit to fit through the bottom of the light fixture. Even with this crappy design the problem could have been fixed with a smooth chain instead of a ball chain, but alas every ball gets stuck on the edge where it exits the fan motor unit as it is pulled. Its just a matter of time before too much pressure is applied and the chain breaks. The chain operating the light is correctly install facing downwards and is not a problem. I'm still considering re-engineering this fan to work right.
All Hunter ceiling fans are "remote control" adaptable. Consider a remote control for it.
There are Nylon pull strings fitted with a ball clasps on the ends. Consider that, too.
Both at Lowe's or Home Depot...
