Question about Minka Aire F300-ORB 10'' RETRO STYLE FAN Oil Rubbed Bronze Table

1 Answer

Minka Aire F300 BN

My fan has worked great for a very long time. Slowly the blades seized up and won't turn even though the motor sounds like it is trying to turn them. Should I try to oil it? Or is it a hopeless cause at this point?

You could try to, or open it up to dust it. If none of those work, then it will be time to get a new fan.

Hardwired ceiling fan turned off by itself and stopped responding to remote control, but the light turns on/off.


I've had problems with Minka Aire also. You might need a new receiver. Call Minka @ 1-800-307-3267 and talk to someone in tech dept.. Should be a one year warranty on the receiver.

Minka f502 is noisy - how do you tighten the screws that attach the fan blade to the motor hub?


With a screw driver? And perhaps you also clean all blades. Sorry if you already did that.

How to i replace the light bulb in the minka aire ceiling fan


This is the concept f518-bn or 519-bn with recessed light.
According to the manual you twist the clear plastic cover counter clockwise. This is on the opaque white lens cover itself.
Manual is found here:

Minka Aire Fan will not reverse.


My fan is a concept II and it had the same behavior. I called Minka Aire support about this - they said it was either the reverse module or the receiver. They sent me both no charge! I replaced them and now my fan reverses. i am not an electrician, but the replacement was fairly easy. Just made sure to disconnect 1 wire at a time, connect it to the new wire, etc until I was done. Minka Aire support said they would walk me through it on the phone but I didn't need them to.

Noise from one of the fans on gyro fan


Please see my Solution to the post about the "HOT" motor, with blades that don't turn.
The Minka Aire Gyro fan heads do NOT have any exposed screws that can be tightened. Checking the rear (wood color) pointy trim piece -- first loosen, turn fan blades a bit, then it. tighten back up.

If your fan was just fine before, and now it's cranky, the problem could be the motor head's "tweaked" out of balance: EITHER from the rear trim piece (see above), or from the twin support arms. OR, the fan head has somehow gotten off-kilter and is whirling out of balance.
FIRST, gently rock each fan blade - they are PVC plastic, not wood, and should not Warp. Do they all look the same? Do they feel snug or loose in the fan head? IF that's all good...
1) With the fan OFF, swing that motor head thru it's up and down range a few times, make sure it's moving like the good one.
2) do the above-mentioned pointy trim piece thing, and the "swing thru" thing; rec-check BY HAND to see if it's corrected.
3) If not, check for fan head wobble by slowly turning the blade (fan head) and see if it's running parallel to the motor head. IF NOT, use a thin plastic (spatula) and gently wedge the kiltered side back to parallel - recheck afte each "nudge". It should spin nice and flat with no wobble, and not feel loose, either!
BY HAND: Spin the blades fast - does it bang? NO? great!
Yes? Double check that the grill hasn't gotten banged, and pushing into the blade's path. Re-try the "adjustment" of the fan head - if it still does not remove the problem, then the internal motor shaft supports may be loose, or broken.
Hope this Helps!
