Answer: 
You have the option to use with or without the remote. If you want to use the remote the only thing the wall switch can do is power on or off. If you use or currently have a dimming switch the fan will not work with this either unless you wire without the remote. You would need to change the switch to an on / off only type switch to use with remote. So to answer simply, it is power only from a wall Read More

Answer: 
Technically, even though this fan has a remote control to operate its functions, it should be wired though a wall switch to reduce electrical shock hazards. The wall switch would normally be left on and the fan operated with the remote control. The remote that comes with this fan also comes with a bracket that holds the remote control if desired and can be screwed to the wall. Alternately, a second Read More
Technically, even though this fan has a remote control to operate its functions, it should be wired though a wall switch to reduce electrical shock hazards. The wall switch would normally be left on and the fan operated with the remote control. The remote that comes with this fan also comes with a bracket that holds the remote control if desired and can be screwed to the wall. Alternately, a second remote can be purchased for installation in the wall switch box and either remote could control the fan. For example: in a bedroom at the wall switch location or from the remote at bedside. All a standard wall switch will do is either supply power to the remote control receiver in the fan or shut the power off to it. To control the fan from a wall switch location, a second wireless remote designed for wall switch mounting will need to be purchased. Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in the Minorca fan.
The remote can be used in combination with an on/off wall switch.
If using a variable speed wall switch (fan is not compatible with a dimmer switch), you can not use the remote and must wire the fan directly to the house supply - omitting the remote receiver.

Answer: 
Yes, there is a manual switch on the fan in the top light area to switch the blade direction. The only bummer is that you manually have to switch this on the fan and cannot do it from the remote.

Answer: 
Yes, the switch is located on top of the fan motor inside the upper light shade. It is a typical slide switch and can only be seen when looking above the uplight shade. Otherwise reaching over the shade and feeling around inside, the switch could probably be located to switch it from season to season.

Answer: 
No, this fan cannot be flush mounted as supplied. It should be possible to shorten the downrod by two or three inches with a pipe cutter and by drilling a new hole in the rod for the retaining pin at the fan motor. The fan blades themselves are only ten-inches down from the ceiling with the downrod supplied. And the lowest point of the lower lamp is sixteen-inches down from the ceiling. Anyone who can Read More
No, this fan cannot be flush mounted as supplied. It should be possible to shorten the downrod by two or three inches with a pipe cutter and by drilling a new hole in the rod for the retaining pin at the fan motor. The fan blades themselves are only ten-inches down from the ceiling with the downrod supplied. And the lowest point of the lower lamp is sixteen-inches down from the ceiling. Anyone who can walk through a standard door will not hit their head on this fan if installed on an eight-foot or higher ceiling. It isn't likely there are any ceiling fans made today that flush mount with "uplights." If shorting the downrod, I recommend installing the wooden fan blades after the fan motor is installed to the ceiling. However be sure to install the metal fan blade brackets to the fan motor first, before mounting the fan to the ceiling as you will be able to angle the fan more without the fan blades hitting the ceiling when hooking things up. This fan most likely does not flush mount due to the uplights that require air circulation to prevent heat buildup on the ceiling. Read Less

Thank you for your interest in the Minorca fan.
This fan must be installed with the downrod due to the uplight feature.

Answer: 
The upper bulbs are 7-watt (plastic bulb sockets) and the lower bulbs are 60-watt (ceramic bulb sockets) incandescent. The wattage should not be exceeded for obvious safety reasons. The remote control receiver is rated to control both resistive and ballast type lamps not to exceed 240 watts. All lamps used must be capable of being dimmed.

The upper bulbs are 7-watt (plastic bulb sockets) and the lower bulbs are 60-watt (ceramic bulb sockets) incandescent. The wattage should not be exceeded for obvious safety reasons. The remote control receiver is rated to control both resistive and ballast type lamps not to exceed 240 watts. All lamps used must be capable of being dimmed. It may be possible to get more light and stay at or below the wattage specifications by using either dimable LED's or CFL's. While not documented, it appears the fan manufacturer has also included an automatic resetting circuit breaker to protect the lighting circuit. Attempting to exceed the rated lamp wattage may not be possible even though the remote control receiver is rated for a maximum of 240 watts. Replacing the plastic bulb sockets for the uplights with ceramic bulb sockets and bypassing any over current protective devices should allow for higher wattage bulbs to be installed. Modifying the fan assembly will likely void any warranties and electrical safety ratings it carries. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely love it! Came with a remote........great choice for my high ceiling. It is stylish and beautiful and adds flavor to the room. July 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Fan This is an excellent fan, The reviews that said the lights are not bright must live in a very dark area. This lights are bright enough to light up our living room that is 18x18 with no problem at all. The downside to this fan is that has to be assembled completely on the ground before it is hung up which can be a pain in some cases. I gigged this fan because the ball mount could be a little better of construction with some type of set screw to hold it still in the mount. The other issue is tightening the pole set screws because difficult to get to because they are at an aquired angle behind the top glass. July 21, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to Install Very nice looking fan, but it is nearly impossible to squeeze in all of the wires and the remote receiver in the top ceiling mount. We still have not been able to fully get the cover over the wires/receiver. September 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice fan This is a nice fan. Very quiet which is great because it is in the family room. It seems to move plenty of air. Thought it might be too big for my 9ft ceilings. But it worked well. Two issues: 1) you can't have both the remote control and the wall control. You have to pick one. Would be nice to have both. 2) the lights aren't as bright as I would of thought. I am working on changing them out for led's to see if that might help. We are keeping it so it doesn't bother me that much. I don't know about the install since I had an electrician do it. May 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great fan I put one of these in my master bedroom, easy install, great looks and it moves a lot of air September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value Great value for the price. Easy to install and looks very elegant September 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by QUIET / EXACTLY AS PICTURED / SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED / DECENT INSTRUCTIONS My only complaints are the size of the remote (large and old looking), the light dimmer on the remote (works sometimes, finicky, and dims and brightens very slowly), the audible click from the fan when you press a button on the remote, the remote housing barely fits in ceiling area, you have to manually move a switch to reverse blade direction, the blades are fragile and some kind of glued sawdust the finish is cheap and scratches easy (i recommend extreme caution when cleaning these blades). Beyond these, I like the fan, it's nice looking, quiet, and functional. February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it Even the electrician, who had to put in a junction box for me, said it was the best looking fan he'd installed May 19, 2015
