Our handyman installed our Hunter Douglas Westside fan yesterday, and there is still a strong electrical burn smell everytime it's on. Should I be concerned? Thank you!

If you are controlling the fan speed with a wall type dimmer switch, the mechanical pull chain switch must be in the high speed position ONLY. If the pull chain switch is in the med or low position and you are using a dimmer type wall switch to control the speed you are burning the motor up. If this does not apply to your situation then it is possible that the fan is defective or maybe some packing material inadvertantly got inside the fan

Try changing the frequencies in the receiver & transmitter. If that doesn't work, you probably need a new receiver.

Hunter Douglas Powerrise blinds don't go up and down smoothly


Hello: First of all how old are the shades? Duette/Silhouette? Try raising the shade and then removing the batteries for 10 sec and holding down the manual button for that 10 seconds, then run the shade thru a cycle. Feel free to call I can help you.

Burning smell when lights are on


If the smell is gone 24 hours after the lights were turned off, turn on the fan & leave the lights off. Check for the burning order again. If you can smell it replace the fan. It will be the armature shorting out in the fans motor

Chemical smell coming from fan?


I have installed hundreds of fans in homes and businesses. The only smell complaint I have encountered was from a fan that came with rubber band like gaskets around the light shades. I guess these were intended to cushion the glass where the mounting screws contacted it. When the lights heated up the glass, a hot rubber smell became very strong. We tried smaller bulbs with no help. The solution was to throw away the rubber bands and attach the glass with the screws directly like all the other brands. Since then, I have always thrown the rubber gaskets away if they come in the kit.
