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".

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:

Where is a Hampton bay repair center in Mich. I need a the part hangs the celing fan to the Elc box.


Hampton bay is owned by home depot and to the best of my knowledge there are no repair centers for hampton bay fans. That bracket can be purchased (or ordered) from home depot. You could try searching "king of fans" online, they manufacture hampton bay fans for home depot.

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.

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???
