Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan

2 Answers

Fan not blowing air.

My fiance and I are replacing an old Hampton Bay ceiling fan with a new  ceiling fan- the fan is blowing air out but not down. We think the cause may be that we live in an attic apartment, and the low cathedral like ceiling is cutting off the air flow around the blades and down from the ceiling (in a downward motion) HOWEVER, the old Hampton Bay fan had the same wing span (44") and the same depth from the ceiling. we have no clue what's up. Can you help us please??
Much appreciated!!

    Just to add:  we tried the switch which moves the air up and the switch to move the air down initally. Our room is about 10' by 11' by 8' tall, tiny. Please also consider the pitch in the roof because it is an attic apartment....
    if standing directly under the fan, there is no air movement.  
    hmmm...

Theres a small toggle switch on the fan

that switch is to change direction on the way the fan is blowing

one direction for downward blowing

the other direction is for upward blowing

depends on the area you have to determine which is the best, but i doubt area restriction will hamper force air blowing, air will flow regardless, the area might be big so you dont feel it.

as being living in the attic, HOT AIR rises, so you might want to invest in some installation for the ceiling, because whent he sun hit the roof, it will create an oven effect, in your living area. the hot air is always present, you should have a ventilation fan blowing the hot air out, like thru a small window, the more hot air you blow out, the better.

not sure if this make sense. not sure how big the room is, as FANs are NOISY by nature.

We just had 2 56inch Antigua Hampton Bay fans with 5 Leaf blades installed. The air flow is poor. We have 15 ft. cathedral ceiling on an angle. A 3 ft. extension rod was used on each fan.


ceiling fans have a direction switch in the cover just above the fan motor
it is very possible that during the installation this switch was moved to the wrong direction for the fans to blow down
get a good step ladder and with the fan off check the fan switch and move it to a new position
there should be a small tag saying rev/fwd or up/down
when looking up at the fan , it should be rotating clockwise

Ceiling fan does not blow air


I would guess that the blades are on upside down. Ceiling fans are not supposed to work the same as desk fans though. The idea is not to create a strong flow of air but to create a "cooling breeze" by speeding the convection currents. They work better when they are running slowly (like you see in the old movies)

Need remotes


In theory, they should. Try Hampton Bay first, and if not, check for aftermarket replacements. Those remotes are simple enough that there is no reason that they can't.

Disassembly insrtuctions


Get up there with screwdrivers and find out! You need that funky fanblade-driver tool first, but once you get the blades off and things cleaned, you can deal with pulling guards off and finding the key screw to the ceiling ball retainer, etc. Don't forget to get the breaker off before you get down to the wire nuts....

Or: Craigslist the old one and require the buyer to get it down.
