Q:on The box for this item it states flush mount is an option, but its not covered in the directions. How is that done?
by|Jan 15, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for your question. This question might have been posted on the wrong product. The box only shows the downrod and sloped ceiling options. As stated in the product description, this product can be installed on a flat or angled ceiling. The fan does not have a flush-mount option.

      Q:What kind of ceiling adapter is recommended for an Altura DC 68 ceiling fan (Model #68681) for a 6/12 pitched ceiling?
      by|Aug 6, 2021
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for your question. This fan can be mounted on a pitched ceiling with a maximum angle of 30 degrees. A 6/12 pitch equates to 26.57 degrees, so it should be ok with the included hardware. If the angle is greater, we would recommend a 45 degree canopy kit like model #82725.

          Love the design, not so much for the newly designed remote..
          We have one of these in our previous house and loved it. So, I ordered three of this model and two others with the exact same remote. Well, two that are in the family room are on same remote. One mysteriously turns off by itself-all the time. We will return the one like this that isnt put up yet, it was intended for the master. The other two, one for each spare bedroom, work well, finally. The huge problem is that there are only two channels that these can go on, so that works for three of our fans being on different channels. The other two are continuously being contolled by the other remotes since there isnt another way to do this. You cannot buy more than a few of this brand of ceiling fans for the same house unless you want to control them from the same remote. Our last house had this brand of fans with the older remote and never an issue with the turning on by other remotes.

          We're sorry to hear that you had this issue. The remote has a multitude of available frequencies. Setting the remote dip switch in the 1 position simply places the remote in the mode to change the frequency. You may have to do the pairing process a few times depending on how many fans you have with the same remote. Each time you press the learn button, the remote cycles through internal settings to change frequencies. If you need assistance with pairing the remote separately for multiple fans, please call Home Decorators Collection customer service at 1-800-986-3460 and one of the team members will be able to walk you through the process so that one remote only controls the intended fan.

            Nice, Quiet Fan
            Have had it up and running for a few days now in our 25'x36' kitchen/dining/living great room. Pros: 68" fan moves a decent amount of air on high positioned in the middle of room. Helps keep A/C bill down. Nickel finish is beautiful and matches well with our coastal style home Fan blades seem to be solid wood, not particle board. Silent operation, even on high Remote control works great Cons: Instructions not as detailed as they should be but found online videos to help Wood blades do not have light whitewash finish they seemed to have in pics (will probably do that myself later). 18" down rod it came with was too long for our 10ft ceilings, had to purchase a 12" down rod at HD, which did lower the air flow rate a bit. We like this fan very much and will probably buy the smaller version for our bedroom.

              Don't hesitate to buy, very good fan, pleasantly surprising moves a lot or little are at a very low energy usage
              Bought two of these fans a couple of weeks ago to install in a large two room open area 55'x 25 Verified with my watt test meter, that on low speed, these fans use only 3 watts of energy (3200 cfm), and on high speed only 32 watts of energy (9300 CFM). Thats about 1/5th the energy usage of the old 52" ceiling fans replaced. Both fans run very quite, and no swaying (both fans were mounted to fan rated electrical boxes screwed directly onto the ceiling trusses for a solid mounting) The lifetime motor warranty and 2 year everything else warranty is a big plus too Will be buying another 2 of these fans for two other rooms RCnAZ

                68 inch white fan, I bought 2 for a very large high ceiling in a great room. They are beautiful. On high they spin real slow but amazingly create a breeze and cool off the room. Unfortunately for me one of the fans makes an irritating noise on the lower speeds. Sounds like gears grinding. After I looked up some reviews and found that others have the noise problem too.

                Beautiful, Quiet fan, easy to use
                My son just installed this fan in our vaulted living room. It is beautiful! The blades look lovely against the body of the fan. Looking forward to moving in and using it frequently!

                  Beautiful, large fan. Looks beachy. Have not been able to find a lighting kit that looks big enough for it yet. we installed one with four lights, but it looks too small this fan.

                  The air movement is excellent. However, it hums and vibrates terribly when on a higher speed setting. Also, the gold is nothing like the color pictured. Much more copper toned. We exchanged for another one and the color is the same as before and does not reflect what the ad pictures. The new fan still hums and vibrates the same as well.

                  Great fan!!! We have 4 Hampton fans and 5 Hunter Fans in our home. We added this fan in our living room because of the 68” blade length. Wish all the fans were this make, just the smaller models for the other rooms. On speed level 3 the fan liturally blows your hair!! We added the after market 3 tier light kit and its beautiful!! Love this fan...

                    beautiful powerful fan
                    We bought this fan for our fanily room and couldn’t be happier. We bought the large (68inch) and small one (48inches). . The small one (48in) we placed in the bedroom. They are both high quality. My only complaint is that it only comes with a long post/stem, so we had to go buy 2 6 inch ones to attach the fans too bc we only have 8ft ceilings and the other attachments made the fan hang way too low.
