Old Hunter Fan Installation


Hello,
Do you know where, on the Internet i can get good pictures and instructions for hanging an old "Classic" Hunter fan? I purchased the 4 fans about 16 years ago, removed them from sold house and want to install them in newly purchased house.
Where can i get a good discriptive picture of a "hanger support unit" for ceilings, and where can they be purchased?
Do you know how much these fans weight?
I doubt if i have all the parts for hanging, so i need to know what is the parts list.
These fans are guaranteed for life, and have been discontinued.
The Hunter web site seems to have a problem.

I've got a Hunter Classic in my living room and I just want to alert you to a potential problem: Be sure, if you're upgrading from a crappy fan to the Hunter, to look at the electrical control you've got mounted on your wall. Lightweight units aren't going to do it.
I woke up the night I installed mine to the smell of smoke. I was able to track it down to the wall where the speed control was mounted... it was hotter than a firecracker. Scared the hell out of me. I shut it off and let it cool down, then went down to the borg and bought one of the Hunter controls specifically made for the Classic.
It ain't some lightweight unit; it draws serious current. That being said, it's been like the Energizer Bunny.... just keeps on running.
Sorry I don't have any mounting information but I would think a standard kit available at any borg should work fine. The electrical requirements are unusual; the mounting ones are not.

As a guess, the smaller motor units (about 8" diameter) about 20#; the larger units maybe double that. __________________

What you need to hang them is...
1. The down rod...one end screws into fan motor top, other end terminates in a bracket which has a rubber "roller" on a steel pin across the bracket ends.
2. A lag hook. The bracket end of the down rod hangs from it so diameter of lag hook should be appropriate to the rubber "roller" (which serves to dampen vibration). A 5/16 or 3/8 lag should be fine. Length sufficient to screw firmly into ceiling (see below) and extend sufficiently to hook on down rod.
3. A bell canopy. This fits over the down rod and once the fan is hung it is slid up almost to the ceiling and secured in place against the down rod with small, integral set screws. Its only purpose is to hide the mounting hardware and wires. Some are one piece, others are two piece (two vertical halves).
If you are mounting to a concrete ceiling, just drill a hole, insert a lag shield, screw in the lag screw and hang the fan.
In a standard ceiling, you'll need to either drill into a joist for the lag or span them with wood if one isn't where you want the fan. With a truss ceiling, span securely across two trusses with wood for the lag. Electrical supply houses have kits for fan supports and wiring, I suspect home improvement stores do too but you'd have to make sure they are for the older, heavier fans.
Needless to say, you'll need electrical wiring where the fans are to be. The electrician you hire for that should also be to also properly hang your fans. _________________

No problem, I just browsed it.

Be sure your electrician knows that these fans can't be hung from a fan support box. They're way to heavy and must be bolted to solid framing

Very good description with one clarification: The down rod is 1/2" pipe. It is available at home stores in various lengths and finishes.
You do have to install fan oil in these. I forget what the amount is but it should be topped to the fill hole when the fan is held at a 45 degree angle with the hole on the low side.

Goohgle is our friend.
I purchased the 4

And you don't retain a file of installaon instructions because.....

From a shelf at Lowes / Home Depot where they are sold daily by thousands.

Stand on scale and weigh yourself.
Pick up fan an weigh self again.
Subtract # 1 from # 2.
Try not to injure your brain by thinking.
I doubt if i have all the parts for hanging, so i need to know what is

Yeah, that might help.

So do you, doofus, so do you.
