Hang distance from ceiling is very important. Blades should be as far away from ceiling as possible. On an 8’ ceiling, blades should be at least ten inches from the ceiling for maximum air movement.
Blade Height: To receive the best possible air movement from a fan mounted on a ceiling height of 9' foot or higher, it's best to have blade height at 8' level or as close as possible to 8' level.
Blade Type: Best performing blade is the standard 52" blade. If using a larger blade or a cloth type blade, wide blade, palm leaf style blade, performance will be less on high speeds, but the same or better on low speeds.
If the fan is an existing unit, it is assumed that the motor was working correctly.
With most existing fans, the motor is usually the last thing to give out on the fan.
Most often if the fan is still running, the drive capacitor is weak and needs to be replaced.
Note: Existing blades can cause the same problem due to angle of blade changing over time. Replace blades and/or existing blade irons.
*** Before trying any service tips, please try turning off the power to the fan for 30 minutes. This will reset the receiver to its default setting. ***
The fan has a light bulb issue.
Light bulb replacement suggestions.
You can use either standard bulbs or high efficiency bulbs as long as your light kit uses standard bulbs and will except the bulb size and you use bulbs with the approved wattage.
Note: If your light kit has a screw base that is a candelabra type, then you must use that type of bulb and rating.
You can use solid state LED lamps if base matches the socket and shape will fit the light kit. Note: If using this type of lamp, check bulb instruction for using on a dimmer control.
You can only use standard type bulbs that match the rating of the light kit. In other words, if your light kit is rated for incandescent bulbs and you choose to use compact fluorescents, your light will only operate when the dimmer is on the highest (full power) setting. Generally, fluorescent lamps are not made to dim and will flicker when they are not receiving full power.
Glass globes should be removed from fixture and washed by hand with mild detergent.
WARNING: If the light kit has halogen bulbs, do not touch the glass of the bulb. If contact is made, be sure to clean the glass with a paper towel only!
