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.

Builder Plus 52 in. Indoor New Bronze Ceiling Fan is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst fan ever We always buy Hunter for years but this fan is a horrible, horrible disappointment. We had to pay someone to install & now we feel stuck. The look of it is fine, but if you want any kind of a breeze you have to stand almost directly underneath. We have a small kitchen & when I'm washing dishes or cooking is when I needed it the most, the breeze doesn't reach the sink or the stove/oven. I am so disgusting with the quality. The lighting is also really dim & makes our kitchen look dull. I know that we are going to return this fan even if we have to live with a bare bulb in the kitchen until we get another one. That's how much I hate it. also, the highest goes as fast as the lowest in our other rooms & Airflow (CFM) is around the same but is a lie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Fan! My builder bought several of these for me as I picked it out to put in a new construction custom house. The one over our bed hums, pops and clicks. It is unbearable to the point we no longer turn it on. We had all Hunter fans in our old house and they were great. I am waiting for the others to now go bad also. Not impressed with the current Hunter quality. Would not buy again. Do not buy this model if you want quality or longevity. If I could return them I would.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Assemble The fan itself was easy to assemble and install, AFTER we figured out our house's silly old wiring. There are fans with faster tops speeds, but this works well for us in our kitchen. The lights are bright and the fan is quiet. We are happy with this new addition to our home.

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 4 out of 5 by from Nice Fan Installed in two bedrooms. Love the dark bronze color and looks great with our other fixtures. seems to work as expected..

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.
