Can an adjustable length down rod be used?

Asked by Alice April 4, 2016
3
Answers

Its better to buy the size you need in order to have a solid rod because of the weight of the fan.

What is the length of the down rod? We are looking for 12"

Asked by PB September 17, 2019
3
Answers

Down rod is only 4”. An extension rod/pipe may be used as there is about five feet of wire for this fan.

what type of oil do i use to fill the resevoir?

Asked by tiny May 2, 2016

Answers

Hunter makes a fan oil tube. You may also use something called a “spout oiler”, brand called Zoom.

Does this fan require a 1.5 amp or 2.0 fan control? Will it operate with non-Hunter fan controls?...

no to my knowledge

Nice fan
So, my 40 year old original Hunter fan bit the dust a few weeks ago. The main reason I decided to spend $500 for a new (original) hunter fan was because 1) I wanted it to match my other two original Hunter fans in my home and 2) I wanted to reuse the globe as I love the 70s/80s look. I knocked off a star because Hunter customer service was a complete waste of my time. I called them to ask if I could reuse the old lighting piece on my new fan and they couldn't answer me. As soon as I asked my electrician, he knew immediately (it helped he was over 40) what I was talking about. Hunter customer service had no clue. Just young female reps following a script. My master electrician installed the fan today and voila, the lighting piece worked perfectly in the new fan! There's still an ever so slight motor noise, but my electrician said that's typical of these motors. I can live with it. He said if you want zero motor noise to buy an electronic fan. Overall, I'm very satisfied and hopefully my review helps anyone inquiring if the old lighting will work in the new Hunter original fan...the answer is yes!

Extremely pleased with these fans
Customer review from hunterfan.com logo
Did not realize, but basically grew up with these fans in my parent's house. It's not until now that I'm doing some renovations around the house that I realize these fans have been working flawlessly in my parent's house for 10-15+ years. Still super quiet, can't be beat.

Installed 7 Model 23856 52” Original Fans in 1996
Customer review from hunterfan.com logo
I installed seven white 52” Original fans in 1996. Over 20 years of quiet reliable operation. I just replaced the blades on the fans installed on the lanai. I have been using the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to keep the blades clean. The Interior fans still look new and are quiet.

Great Fan , Not so great warranty!
Customer review from hunterfan.com logo
I love these original life time warrantyfans. Have had them in my home for over 30 years. 1 stopped working and thought I could get it replaced at no extra charge, but was told I needed original receipt. I dont keep receipts for over 30 years so the warranty and company is very disappointing. I had to buy another and the price had gone way up in over 30 years. Very upset about policy but love these fans.
