20763--in small office with 8 ft ceiling. Will it be too fast such

In small office with 8 ft ceiling. Will it be too fast such that it will blow my office papers around (they are all over the office). I am wondering if I ought to exchange it for a 4 blade fan thinking that that one will have a lower rpm on the first fan speed setting? Can you give me a good idea on this before I take this 5 blade out of box and install only to find out it is too powerful even on the lowest setting.

There is a little black switch that reverses rotation so it's pulling air up. On low with this reversed it should be just fine.

We've taken this fan down. How do you take the fan blades off????

The blades are usually held on with little screws with nuts and washers on them. Usually a screw driver will turn the screws.

Harbor Breeze fan light keeps blinking on and off. Is problem in switch or in fan unit assembly?

That's what you get when you buy a low-end store brand fan. Also, you should never buy a hugger fan unless your ceiling is under 8 ft. Most hugger fans are worthless. They have a cheap motor and no blade pitch.

Fan continues to wobble at all speeds.

Check to make sure you don't have a wire pinched between the Triangular ball and the canopy. If you don't have anything pinched between it, make sure your electric box isn't loose. If it isn't, pull down moderately on the fan with it off and move the fan around it's full axis several times, which should seat the ball into the canopy better. Almost every Hunter with the HandsFree canopy I've installed, I've had to do this little "procedure" which the manual says nothing about.

The fan works but the light won't?

The electric outlet box in the ceiling (is there only one black and one white wire to be connected)? If so, you have to connect the black and blue wires from the fan to the black house wire. If you know this is already done, you next have to check the connetor from the light assembly to the connector of the fan unit ( that these coneectors are properly fitted). If this is ok , then the final item to check would be the pullchian switch for the light. Over-ride this switch (jump its connection) to see if light works, or take the light unit and apply ellectric to itfrom an extension cord (after you remove it from fan unit). Then you will know if wire connections within light are ok. All this assumes ther fan is not controlled by electronic remote control. If you have a remote control, thenit could be the circuit broard within the fan that sends a signal to the light. Good Luck, Macgivor

Removing the ceiling mount from the ceiling of a hampton ceiling

Sometimes there is a small trim piece where the canopy meets the ceiling that "snaps" into place and rather than turning to unlock it needs to be gently pryed off. If you have a small trim piece that makes more than about 1/8 of a turn without unlocking. that is definately what you have.

Fan won't turn on, dont know where switch is

I looked up the owners manual for your fan at the following site:
Click on the pdf file labeled owner's.This manual indicates there should be a pull chain for turning on and off the fan. Maybe the chain has broken off up inside the fan. You can follow the instructions in this manual to take the fan apart and replace the pull chain.

Replacing old fan with Hunter 20763.

People find all kinds of creative ways to wire things. White wires are always supposed to be neutrals and therefore should always go with other white wires, and colored wires should always be hot and should always go with other colored wires. If you have a voltage tester you could test to see if in fact the blue wire is actually the hot and the white is actually the neutral. (test each wire to a ground). If the previous fan was wired backwards, it would not affect the operation of the fan or lights at all. But you'd probably want to make sure the new fan was wired properly. In that case connect the white from the fan to the neutral and the black and black/white to the hot.

Fan not blowing air.

theres a small toggle switch on the fan

that switch is to change direction on the way the fan is blowing

one direction for downward blowing

the other direction is for upward blowing

depends on the area you have to determine which is the best, but i doubt area restriction will hamper force air blowing, air will flow regardless, the area might be big so you dont feel it.

as being living in the attic, HOT AIR rises, so you might want to invest in some installation for the ceiling, because whent he sun hit the roof, it will create an oven effect, in your living area. the hot air is always present, you should have a ventilation fan blowing the hot air out, like thru a small window, the more hot air you blow out, the better.

not sure if this make sense. not sure how big the room is, as FANs are NOISY by nature.
