Can you buy another size downrod or not use one? We love the larger fan for our size room but we only have 9’ ceilings so the fan would hang too low.

Installed last night worked great. Now this morning it keeps shutting off on its own. Timer is not on. Shuts off in a couple of minutes.

We're sorry to hear that you are having this issue. The fan my be receiving an interfering signal from another device in the area. Please try changing the dip switch setting in the remote and repairing the remote with the fan. This will change the frequency of the fan to avoid the interfering signal. If that does not resolve the issue, please call Home Decorators Collection customer service at 1-800-986-3460 and one of the team members will be able to help troubleshoot and resolve the issue.

Can the 18 inch rod be cut down to 12 inches

Asked by Robert October 30, 2020
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. We do not recommend cutting the downrod as it could lead to balance and performance issues. The downrod can be replaced with a 12" downrod. Please note that installing with a shorter downrod may negatively impact the fan's airflow performance because the amount of available air between the ceiling and blades will be decreased.

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.

This fan is perfect for our great room! We have high ceilings and we're looking for a fan that had a larger blade span then the builder put in. The one that was there was only 52 inches. This one is awesome because it has a larger blade span, you can control it with the remote and change the blade direction for the seasons on the remote. It's beautifully updated our family room and my husband put it in easily. It's so quiet too! I would highly recommend this fan.

We were in the market looking for a “gold” ceiling fan to replace existing noisy one. Found this Altura 68” ceiling fan in bronze and kept in my cart for $279.99, waited and got on sale for under $200. Also purchased light kit. Instructions could be better cause I had to google how to properly install light kit to this ceiling fan. Overall it’s “quieter” & “breezier” than previous fan however still makes clicking noises occasionally which can get annoying at times. Also had to purchase new 48” down rod cause existing down rod was too narrow in diameter for connecting to this fan. Beautiful large ceiling fan, blades, & light kit. Glad I waited for sale cause occasional motor noises still bug me!

It moves air quite well, but within 5 minutes of turning it on it made a horrible, loud BUMP sound, followed by a grinding sound. Then it stopped running. We turned it off at the remote, then restarted it. It started, reversed itself, then went forward again and has run fine for the last 10 minutes. I’ll update if things change, but I’m definitely glad I purchased the warranty. The last Hampton Bay fan we bought lasted less than a year before the motor only went one speed - EXTRA SLOW. Also, we purchased the black model because we thought it would be simplest of the DC fan colors to match a light kit with. Hampton Bay and Home Decorators Collection do not make any light kits that match the DC fan colors. The colors of the DC fans are different than all their other fans. We need a proper light kit. The instructions say it will work with any universal light kit. I bought a Hunter universal light kit, only to find that neither are actually “universal” as they weren’t compatible. Very frustrating.

We had a professional install. The installer commented about what a nice fan we had purchased. We used the included down rod. This fan moves a lot of air! Couldn't be happier. Love the vintage copper color. And love the remote.
