Customer Questions & Answers

is there a remote for this model?

Asked by: jennymay
No remote included, you could purchase an after market remote. You have to make sure you have enough room in the electrical box for fan stuff and the remote housing --

I installed a 53238 fan tonight. Looks great and appears to work OK. My issue is the light is too bright.

In the specifications listed on the Home Depot web site the fan is dimmable. If it is I haven't figured out how to dim it. Your help please and thank you. Hoppy
Asked by: Hoppy
I installed my fan on a dimmer switch. You need to buy a special dimmer switch for ceiling fans and then the light can be adjusted to any brightness you like.

Both fans are identical except this one has the light kit. A friend of mine who is an Electrician, did the installation. The Hunter runs perfect. The 2 chains used to control the fan speed and the lights are almost motionless even on the highest speed. Sound - The only sound emitted is the whoosh of the blades as they cut through the air. Output - Specs claim 5045 CFM. I'll just say, unless you want a hurricane blowing down on you, you won't be disappointed. It's DOES move the air very well. Appearance - Looks just like the above photo. Do you like the photo? If you say yes, then you'll like it. The lights - I put 3, GE 60w LED daylight Candelabra bulbs in it on day one. They really put out the light, almost no heat and should last for a long, long time. Home Depot, shipping I'm a fan of Hunter fans. I wouldn't have anything else.

Even looks better in person than in the picture. It was a perfect choice for our guest bedroom that needed both a fan and ceiling light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Very attractive. One Globe was cracked but Hunter sent a replacement quickly. Had someone install the fan. He was pretty fast. I was actually interested in the lights because there is minimal light in the fairly large living room area. The lights were pretty bright. No remote with this for the price. Very happy with the ceiling fan. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase... quality product for the price Have purchased many Hunter fans in the past, and this one is up to the same quality as the rest. Excellent finish, easy installation. Comes with a blade balancing kit, but I have never needed to use one of these with a Hunter fan. Only complaints are that the light kit uses candelabra bulbs, and that the motor vent areas have the fine black mesh on the inside (which I always see on cheaper fans). Curious if this is to catch filings or debris that are produced over time. For the price, couldn't do better. Wife was extremely happy with the finished look, which is a real bonus.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst ceiling fan we've ever bought My wife and I bought a Hunter fan for our bedroom to replace the fan that we previously had there. We've had the fan for about a year now and didn't use it much during the fall or winter, and have been using it a good bit now that hot weather has arrived. The high speed on it is like the low speed on several other ceiling fans we have in our house. We had the switch on so that it would pull air up because it is in an upstairs room and we wanted to pull the cool air from the baseboard central air conditioner vents. When the fan ran so slow, we tried reversing the motor with the switch and the sorry piece of junk would not even run AT ALL to blow air down. So, it's not even reversible because it's a total lemon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from do it myself Pretty easy install. Than again not the first fan I ever did. Instructions were good. Balancing kit was good and a few spare parts in a bag was good too. Looks nice and cools off the room. Just what my wife ordered. Needed to buy 3 Candelabra Socket Extenders because fan came with Chandelier Bulbs and I wanted CFL bulbs. Obvious....Cooler, less expensive, and much more light. Was worth an extra $2.75 x 3 or $8.25 for a $100 fan.
