    I also just purchased a Hampton Bay altura 68" ceiling fan and the high speed setting is very low rpms. I have read other comments that it has high air flow with the long fan blades at very low rpm's. I am just wondering if this is normal or if there is a problem with the one I purchased. The airflow does not seem that great.

    68 fan celling  problem no high speed  this fan is very slow dont kn,,,why

    I have not bought one yet but have been looking at it in HDepot. Their information indicates there is an optional light kit available via special order. When I asked more about it at HD they said that they can't show me a picture of it because it has not yet been created per their contact with Hampton Bay. HD rep said they would create the light kit when HB gets enough requests for it!!! Go figure.

    I just bought six of the Altura 68" fans! I installed one, and the speeds seem very slow indeed. I am not going to install the others until I can figure out if this one is running properly. The fast speed seems like the slow speed on other fans I own. However, at high speed it does seem to move quite a bit more air.



    I am wondering if this is actually the speed it is supposed to rotate at because of the large blades, or if there is a problem. Does anyone know?

    I have just installed this same fan and am noticing the vast difference in speeds from the last fan I replaced. Granted, the blades are much larger, but can anyone confirm the statement that the air displacement by this fan at this slow speed is sufficient?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have the same problem, and I am quite dissatisfied by it. You would think that this large beautiful fan would deliver a power flow of air with 3 speeds. It does not. I'm extremely disappointed with it. I'm considering taking it back. The manufactures should be aware of this and rectify.

I too just installed a 68" Altura and noticed a huge difference in fan speed. I spoke to a rep for the manufactorer and found out that the high, medium, and low rpms are 70, 45, and 25. The typical 52" fan has rpm speeds of 190, 130, and 75. The kicker is airflow. The 68" moves 7,808, 4,417, and 2,953 cfms on high, medium, and low; the 52" fans move 5,503, 4,087, and 2,509 cfms.

We have just installed the Hampton Bay "Altura" ceiling fan. We are having the same problem with the fan turning way too slow. High is like low, even though on the box it states "larger motor for increased air flow". We have installed this in a room with a vaulted ceiling and the air flow is just not there. Our 52" fan was 100% better. Plus the light kit is a special order item. This is just not worth all of the trouble. We will probably take it back, unless someone has found a solution. We are very dissapointed, not too mention the waste of time it was to install it. Unfortunatley we will now have shop for another fan, take this one down and install a new one.....

The Hamptom Bay 68" Altura is similiar to some of the much older fans of the 20's, 30's and 40's that did not spin very fast but moved sufficient air because of their size and blade design. This type of design is quieter and moves the same, or more air as a faster spinnig fan with less efficient blades. I've been looking for a fan like this for some time. I think Hamptom Bay did their homework well on this one.

    before the blades were installed, it spun faster! Installed the bladed and moved much slower. There is a problem with the motor handling the 68". We took the first one back and this is our second one to install. Same problem!! Taking it back!

    I have one of these fans. I installed it several years ago. Although the blades don't appear to move fast, they do move copious amounts of air. My 400 square foot living room is quite comfortable with this fan on the lowest speed. Only occasionally do I up it to speed two. To address another issue, the motor will spin much faster when the blades are not attached. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about.

    This fan does not move air like other fans! Maybe it may be energy efficient, but at the expense of keeping a room cool. This fan was installed in a 700 sq.ft. room, we could hardly feel the air moving at the high speed. We are not novice home owners. I would not pay this kind of money for what this fan accomplishes.

    I wonder if this problem is with the newer models?

  • Andrew Offutt Jun 30, 2014

    Perhaps your fan is defective, but mine moves quite a bit of air even on the lowest speed. My ceilings are 14 feet hight. Often, when sitting under the fan, even at low speed, I get cold. And the room is not even air conditioned. On high speed it creates a big wind. I like this fan so much I'm going to buy another one to put in my mountain cabin.

Yes, it's working! Moves more air because the blades are longer and have concave shape.

What is the best setting to use to dry clothes


Medium or low heat and put a few DRY,clean towels in there.
AUTO moisture sensors will do the rest.

The HIGH setting is not good for the dryer or your clothing.

Always put in a dry article to speed the process up.

Permanent press w/cool down is good.

If you use the HIGH setting,you better be **kid and waiting for the clothes to be dry!

Sorry.

Clothes do not dry


Possible that the RPM of the final spin is LOW and so the clothes do not get the HIGH speed to expel the water .
You need to check if the belt is worn out, if the motor speed is low. If so check if the spindle is tight, check if the capacitor to the motor is faulty- use one in parallel of the same value.
Finally if there is a gear box check for fault within for engaging the high speed drive.

There is no difference in drying between medium and high setting.


You only need a certain amount of heat and air to evaporate a given amount of water. If you don't notice any difference, use the medium setting. You would notice a difference with a larger load.

Dryer Heats on High all the time


I don't think it is the heating elements. You have checked out all the important stuff. Is there power coming from the controls on medium and low. It sounds like this is the problem.
