Question about Dayton (3C690B) Ceiling Fan

I'm looking for guidelines for installation of multiple fans in a small (25' x 18' x 12' ceiling height) room. I am concerned that too many fans might cause objectionable air flow. Any advice?

Try here for some insight, you can also google for "ceiling fan placement" and get a host of sites that offer advice as well.

If you already have a product line chosen, then you might contact the manufacturer for advice as well.

I have two ceiling lights in a room. Want to install ceiling fan in one outlet. How do I wire it so that I can have fan in one place but turn off light in other? Do I have to hot-wire ceiling fan?


You simply use the ceiling fan switch to power the fan. U can hook it up in parallel to the other light fixture. The wall switch can power both units but you can always shut off the fan. To run the fan and kill the light you would need a separate circuit for the light with its own switch. Or hot wire the fan as you indicated.

I bought and installed my new Westingouse turbo swirl in my kitchen. The blades are knocking my cupboard doors when I open the doors. Is there a way to shorten my fan so that it stands nearer to the c


Ceiling fans often come with two lengths of tubing to mount on different height ceilings. If you have it mounted with the long tube you may be able to remove that and install a shorter one. Alternatively you may be able to shorten the tube. If you are hitting the cupboards you are not centered in the room and it really should be, to be most effective.

Uneven cieling solution please


Use laser level to find level line around room.
Figure out how you are going to change ceiling lights as part of any plan.

1) Put furring strips across room 16" on center.
Use shims or spacers under furring strip at each nailing point to keep level.
Re-install ceiling electrical boxes to match new ceiling height.
Install new sheetrock.

2) Install suspended ceiling grid.
The cross grid is held with wires attached to old ceiling.
Plan for electric lighting by installing can light fixtures or drop in 2'x2' or 2'x4' fluorescent lights.

3) Float smooth, and prime ceiling.
Have artist paint cloud scene on ceiling to disguise unevenness.

I just need to know how to install this in an old house to replace a ceiling fixture and install a ceiling fan without having to make a huge hole in my ceiling. I can't find any instructions on the model...


If you're trying to replace a light fixture with a ceiling fan. The most important thing is to make sure that the electrical box in the ceiling can support the weight and momentum of a ceiling fan. If it's an old house, as you say, I suspect it's not. However, there are support kit, that you can but from most home centers, that will install without having to make a "huge hole" in your ceiling. If you have an attic above this room, accessing and beefing up the support of the electrical box would not be difficult. If you don't have that luxury, then the support kit is your best solution, as you don't need to have access to an attic above.

As far as the Model # 22200 is concerned ... Since you didn't mention what it was, I don't have a clue.

In any event, I hope this helps you in installing the ceiling fan. Please let me know and if you would please rate my response to you. Thank you!

Hot to install living room fan


mcdevito75 here, Most stores selling these ceiling fans will send someone to install it for a small fee or even a nice tip. First you"d need 2 people as the fan motor is 3--5 LBs in weight and has to be supported to hook up wires. If your handy and can follow the directions and have 2 people give it a try. If not, look for a handy preson in your area.

Clockwise, counterclockwise which is the summer setting?


Ceiling Fan Direction These recommendations depend actually on the height and size of the room; the season; and the activity taking place in the room.

The basic fact of nature is that warm air rises to the top and cold air settles on the bottom. Air settles in layers from warm at the top to cold at the bottom, if left alone at equilibrium.

Ceiling fan recommendations:

In the winter
Set the fan to run counterclockwise (reverse; this looks clockwise as you are looking up). This will redirect the warm air from the ceiling and down the walls and into the living space where the people actually are. In a house, you would run the fan at a low speed so that you don't actually cool the warm air that you are moving downward. If you have a high ceiling, or are trying to heat a hall or a church, you may want to increase the fan speed so that the warm air will reach the living space as long as the fan speed does not create an unwanted downdraft at the people below. In the summer
In a room of normal height (8 - 10 ft), you should operate your fan so that it turns clockwise (this looks counterclockwise as you are looking up), causing a more directed downdraft, especially with the fan running slightly faster. This causes a wind-chill effect because the skin evaporates slight amounts of water from the sweat glands and thereby provides cooling through the skin's surface. However, the air is only moved but not cooled! You may find that you can turn your thermostat down a degree or two and save more money on energy costs. The air blowing down won't actually cool the room though, so you should turn the fan off when there are no people (or animals) in the room. In a high hall or church
It may be best NOT to run the fans at all in summer. This lowers the demand for cooling since the hot layer on top is an excellent insulation between the cool air near the floor (and the people) and the hot roof and outside.

A large, tall manufacturing hall would typically have different goals. There one would have a floor full of heat producing machinery plus the people operating it, working hard and welcoming a bit of a breeze. Then it would make sense to run the fans at fairly high speed to create a certain and directed downdraft. And with the shifts going throughout the days of the week, the fans should be running all the time and maybe in all seasons.

Finally, fans typically use 80-100 watts. When used properly, ceiling fans can really help to optimize the comfort level of the people and save energy and money.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer

Do you know where is Hunter fan's fuse?


There are several portions for a ceiling fan... it sounds as if the small motor that actually turns the blades shorted / or burned out.

Do not have room for a remote control receiver in my ceiling fan. Can i just buy a new hanger bracket that has the mounting room.


Hello, your installation will determine if you can use another type of hanging bracket. If you require that the fan must be mounted close to the ceiling there might be a way to install the remote by using plastic wire ties to sucure the receiver. There are many fans that state NOT FOR USE WITH REMOTE. Please check to see if your fan is one of thoes. If ceiling height is not a issue then a new hanger bracket should do the trick. Make sure that the bracket and the installation location will support the weight of your fan. SAFETY FIRST
