Question about Hampton Bay 24750 Huntington III Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Fan motor noise

I recently purchased two of your Huntinton 111 52" ceiling fans from Home Depot for my cabin. I had both professionally installed as they were at the cabin working on another project. They were both installed with the short down rod. Both work fine except one of them has a noisy irritating sound which makes it impossible to sleep. It is hard to explain, but goes whoooomp, whooomp when on med or high speed. I know it is wrong because the other fan does not do this.

    My same fan is also noisy and sounds like it's the motor. I tried the balancing act (a balancing kit actually came with the fan). It makes a noise on all speeds, even though it is the loudest on low speed. I don't want to dismantle it if I don't have to.

Does the fan seem to wobble when it is operating? If so, the fan blades may be out of balance. You can purchase self-adhesive weights to stick on the top of the blades to get them balanced properly. It is a trial-and error process, but it is the easiest and most cost-effective way of reducing fan noise. Other possible causes might be: the fan is loose in its mounting, or the mounting itself is loose .A wire inside the fan motor may be rubbing against some moving part. Also, the fan unit may not be properly grounded, or wired with reverse polarity., causing a 60 cycle "hum".

Need help finding replacement blades for our ceiling fan model 52-DA made by chien lien industries


Hello, Karl -

Do you know at what bricks and mortar store your Chien Luen ceiling fan was purchased? I do not find any source for a Chien Luen 52-DA ceiling fan replacement parts on line.

If the fan was sold new by Home Depot, I suggest you contact Home Depot Customer Care. This is the email address:

Best wishes.

Altura 68" fans will not operate on high speed.


I jtoo, ust bought The Altura (68" fan from home depot)
Home depot makes hampton bay through various chinese manufacturers.................
The fan ran slow on high speed, and barely ran on medium or low.
home depot gave me a number for their tech department that knew right away.....that the capacitor(s) are defective in many of the Altura fans.
They are sending the capacitors in 3 days to me no charge.
They are located under the fan ( remember the white square plastic plug you had to connect and the 2 wires for the optional light kit?.....)That plug is for the capacitors that everyone is having a problem with.
My guess is they are under rated for a fan that big and are sending better ones to those with problems.
Hope this helps.
The number is:

This is not the best idea, but you could buy another one and change the broken globe with the new one. Then take it back fo a refund.

Cover does not attach to the universal bracket I purchased


Buy a drill and drill bit and make a hole in the bracket where needed. To make installation easier, use a larger that needed drill bit and add washer to screw, won't look as professional but you are not a professional anyway. Who goes around looking at ceiling fan mounts anyway???
