Mcdevito75 here, Hopefully your ceiling fan will go where there has been an already light fixture, if so, that light fixture shoud be mounted to the ceiling beam, and your new fan will be mounted the same way. If by chance your new ceiling fan is being mounted where nothing was ever mounted you"ll have to make sure the ceiling fan will mount to a beam, they are every 16 inches apart. This way you:"ll know that vibration from the fan won"t hurt anything.

I want to install a ceiling fan and have discovered wood lath + plaster backed by some other wood. Can I screw into that? No attic.


I'm a professional Handyman and install fans a lot. The most important thing is to be sure the fan mount is sturdy. You can get pros at Home Depot and Lowe's to help you buy the right stuff. Many people just take down a light and put up a fan. NOT GOOD! ... if the electrical box isn't really sturdy, the weight of the fan and over time, could cause the fan to fall down. Your description of "what you discovered" isn't clear enough. Offhand, I would say 'yes'. I only charge about $65 to install fans, so it might be worth it to you to find a handyman to do it for you. Try Craigslist. If you feel you can do it, 'google it' -install a ceiling fan. Try watching videos too.

Where can I get a new motor for my Hunter Designer's Choice Ceiling Fan (model # 99048


Call Hunter at 1-901-745-9222. I think this number is still current, it might not be. Tell them your issue, most likely they will send you an entire new unit (or is your fan the OLD Designer's Choice from the 80's with a rubber flywheel?)

I have plaster walls in an old house the stud finder just keeps beeping how does this thing work?


Your stud finder keeps beeping because old plaster walls have lath boards behind the plaster that are attached to the studs and running horizontally. Try adjusting the sensitivity of the stud finder by placing it on the wall and turning the sensitivity down until it just stops beeping. Then move it back and forth in a wide enough arc to be sure that you have crossed a stud, turning up the sensitivity ever so slightly until you get a tone when you cross a stud. Hope this works out for you.

Hunter 23852,L-black to red-hurricane speed,black to yellow-almost hurricane,black to gray-very slow,hardy moves air,installed westinghouse 6A125vac switch,same speeds,how can i get a comfortable medium...


Howdy,

Sounds like a good ol' American made Hunter Original to me. BEST and most powerful residential ceiling fan (high quality) ever made. The RPM spec is 200-160-50 for the respective speeds, moving 10,500 CFM on high speed. Most ceiling fans barely crack 5,000 CFM. they were built for Brute Force Air Movement and they really don't do well for small spaces. The best solution I have for you is if you have a Wall switch for this fan, to install a Hunter Original Wall control or remote control. http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=hunter+original+control&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Both controls will lower the Medium speed to about 100-110 rpm, which should be much more comfortable for you.

Because the Hunter Original (I know your fan is an American made unit by your wire colors) draws more current than other fans, the Original controls are the only controls that are designed to work with your fan. Other controls do not have the current capacity for the Original motor.

Also, are you aware your fan uses oil?

Light bulbs burn out


Use bulbs specifically designed for ceiling fans - they say "ceiling fan" on the package (Home Depot, Lowes both carry). The slightest regular vibration (like a fan rotating) causes normal incandescent elements to burn out within days or weeks.

If you wired black to black, white to white and green or bare to ground, you wired it right. Sometimes there are two blacks (hots) one for the light and one for the fan, but most of the time you hook the light wiring parallel to the fan wiring unless you install a remote switch.

I had a Panasonic bath fan installed the week before Thanksgiving. It was represented that this fan was virtually silent. It is however, noisier than the 22-year old fan it replaced. My contractor tells...


Vibration noise is usually due to inballanced, or damaged fan blade.

Take off the coveer, make sure its installed properly, the blade is not cracked, and check for ballanced motor/bracket/blade.

They typically have rubber bushings between the motor mounts and the housing to dampen vibration noise.

Bulbs burning out in Hampton Bay ceiling fan


I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.
