I'm running into a bit of a problem when installing my Hampton Bay
Fan.. If anyone has it let me know its at
Just incase anyone knows what I'm talking about.
I installed this fan and it looks as if the manufacturer puts in
rubber stops so the motor doesnt spin during shipping. When in, the
motor does not spin freely when you move it with your hand.
I removed those and tested the motor in its installed position and it
worked fine. The bad part comes in when I install the blades. After
installing the blades the fan spins freely still with the push of the
hand, but does not rotate when electricity is pushed through like it
did without the blades. Any ideas what might be going on here?
I have just taken one back and got an exachange for the same reason.
The connection is a switched JBox, I have also tried it ont he
unswitched with the same results. I have the light kit installed ont
he fan as well, and that works without a problem.
I have a hunter remote unit running it, but I know this isnt the
culprit since it acted the same way without the remote unit between
the box and the fan.
Any help, ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I just
would hate to take down this fan again and return it again. It hurts
my head just thinking about it.
