Question about Hampton Bay 73554 Antigua Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Diamater of downrod

Should the downrod on this fan fit tightly into the body of the motor? Purchased as a "demo" from Home Depot - came with a longer dowrod. The rod has a clevis pin and set screw where it goes into the fan motor, but there is quite a bit of play between the downrod and the housing. Fans I have had in the past are all a tight fit. Not sure if Depot did a "quickee" to hang it as a demo, or if this the design of this fan.

I have a Hampton Bay 54" Metro Outdoor Fan in Rustic Copper. I am trying to locate a 24" downroad for it. No luck at Home Depot. Can you please help?

That's a store brand so the only place you'll find it in that finish is Home Depot. The Fanimation 1" downrods will probably fit but you won't be able to match the finish.

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!

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 bought this fan and bought a 60 inch hunter downrod it dosent fit into the fan homedepot said they are all standard but no go should i grind it down

what about it doesn't fit? I'd say it should fit. Is it threaded? Is the fan threaded? Are the setscrews on the fan backed all the way out? Is the rod that goes through the top of the fan and the downrod out?

Extender bar has no way of threading into fan

There should be a set screw on either side of the pin that goes through the downrod where it meets the motor housing, make sure they are tight (or not missing)
