While the original poster's unit may have been defective/damaged, even a properly-working Marvin 5460 can become noisy over time, as the fan will tend to become loose just through normal wear. My own heater developed an annoying fan rattle after 3+ years of fairly heavy winter use (4-5 months per year); eventually it was loud enough to be distracting.

Anyone else facing the same problem will be happy to know that Marvin designed these models very well. A loose/rattling fan can easily be fixed in seconds using only a screwdriver, without even opening the heater. (You should unplug it and let it cool first, of course, just to be safe.)

On the underside of the heater casing, pretty much dead-center, are a pair of screws side-by-side, about two inches apart. On my unit, they're a brassy color that clearly sets them apart from the case screws (which are silver). Those are the screws that secure the fan to the mounting bracket inside the heater. Simply hand-tighten both firmly, and that should eliminate any rattling or noise caused by a loose fan!

I brought our aire fan at Home Depot last week. I installed yesterday. The fan is working fine but the light is not on. My fan is 56" Tidal Breeze LED distressed KOA. Please help

Hi Wendy:
I have found that Home Depot have been excellent at trying to ensure customer satisfaction.
My recommendation to you is that since this is a very recent purchase, you contact Home Depot. Customer Service Department as soon as possible. Request and record the name of the person that you are talking to, explain the problem, and ask how they can correct it. If there is not a simple fix, they will usually promptly replace a defective item.

Can't find light kit to fit 52" Hampton Bay ceiling fan

I've found that Hampton Bay has it's own light kits, available only from them. The others (generic) aren't the same size. Hampton Bay fans are made exclusively for Home Depot. They are made by a few different manufacturers but only Home Depot sells them. I would have Home Depot customer service get a brochure for you so you can order what you need, if they don't stock it.
