I recently installed a Hunter 42" Low Profile Fan with light in my
kitchen. I noticed that the shock mounts that they require to mount
the plate to ceiling cause the fan/motor assembly to move. Seems too
When I pull the chain to turn on the fan, the whole motor body moves.
It is not loose, it is simply a very soft mount. Should I remove the
gromet shock mounts and have the plate mount flush to the ceilng?
When I turn the fan on, it wobbles and I think that the wobbling
motion will fatigue the wiring. This is a very crappy design, if t is
designed to be a mushy mount.
It's the most dumb assed design I've seen except for some other Hunter
models. No, you can't remove the rubber bushings or the canopy screws won't
line up, and without the bushings, the thing would squeak against the
ceiling. My suggestion is junk it and get any other make fan
There is a 1/2" gap between the canopy surface and the ceiling. If the
gromets are removed, there would still be a small gap for rattling.
Your right, it is a sucky design. What other brand would be better?
I will simply bring the Hunter back to Home Depot, and tell them that
it is a piece of junk and get another.

Casablanca "Intellitouch" is IMHO the best fan you can buy, but very pricey.
The joke is that they're owned by Hunter
The Hampton Bay fans from HD are actually made by a variety of companies,
some are fan-tastic, others are decent . Emerson also makes a pretty decent
line of fans.
