a high ceiling and use it all summer in So Calif -
I bought this fan and it was working great. I went to turn it on With the remote in the spring and it would not turn on.. Changed batteries, had 2 contractors and 2 electricians look at it.. None of them could determine what was wrong. A fifth electrician came in and touched the remote control and it immediately went on. Both the light and the fan worked. Tried it about two weeks later and neither the fan nor the light goes on again. This is very frustrating and we cannot figure out where the problem is Or how to fix it?
Jane L on Jun 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: As a first step, contact Minka tech support. They are the manufacturer of your fan. If you still have issues afterward, let us know along with the name of the rep you spoke to.

Beautiful fan, low volume hum
We bought two of these for our new home. They look great and provide very good airflow. BUT, there is a low volume hum when running that gets even louder the higher the fan speed. In the bedroom, at night, it is very annoying. During the day, in the den with other ambient noise, it is not that noticeable. We purchased three additional fans from other manufacturers and there is no such noise. Not sure what we will do since we like the look and performance of the fans with tis exception. There are other reviews on this site and others with the same issue. Minka-Aire, find a solution!!!!

Pros: Easy to install, Attractive, Circulates Air Well

Best Uses: Decorative, Air Circulation

Best fan I ever bought!
First of all, I'm a real person. I bought this fan for my rather large master bedroom. It was a bit too small. However, when we turned it on and discovered how much air it put out we were smitten. Must have something to do with the 48 degree blade pitch. It is such an attractive fan that we decided to move it to another room and buy the larger 5-blade version. It is equally beautiful and efficient. I've never had a fan that I was so happy with. The remote works perfectly and the dimmable light adds instant atmosphere. For us it was worth the little bit extra to have a fan that we were so pleased with.

Pros: Attractive, Quiet, Works in Both Directions, Range of Speeds, Circulates Air Well

Best Uses: Smaller Rooms, Air Circulation, Decorative

Fan Troubles.
Beautiful looking fans and one is working well.
--Ordered two of these fans. One is working perfectly the other had parts drilled incorrectly and would not match up per my Master Electrician who installed the one but couldn't get the other one due to the part match up problem.
--Spoke with Louisa who sent a third fan which I've received and has been installed.
--The third fan has an annoying hum in the motor. Can't sleep with it. Need to get fan two returned and call Louisa about fan # 3.
--I had hoped to install 4 of these fans in my Key West home. If they all worked like fan # 1 it would be a go.
--Will see what happens with getting a 4th fan for my MA home.
--Is the problem "Made in China"?

Beautiful, modern fan
We installed 3 of these fans. Love the look. One had to be replaced due to excessive humming, but Lamps Plus was great about a replacement.

Nice Fan but I Get a Hum When Turned On
I installed my fan, and it is a good looking fan, in my master bedroom. The construction and air circulation is excellent. But I get a hum that I can't get it to stop. Laying in bed with the fan running, I hear this hum. I contacted Lamps Plus, they had me contact Minka. I contacted Minka and explained the hum and Minka had me call Lamps Plus back to get a replacement remote control receiver. I received and installed the second receiver and I still have the hum. At this point, I haven't decided what to do next. Would I recommend this fan? To tell you the truth, I don't know.

Sleek and efficient
This ceiling is so attractive but subtle and invisible. As attractive as it is, it also allows visibility in the room. We had a very large fan before but this one circulates the air more efficiently. Just live it

These fans are the best
We replaced all our main house fans with this Minka fan and everybody loves them. Several family members have gone to Lamps plus to get the same fan. Cannot imagine having the old type of fan back, these are sleek and so quiet, they are just great. Minka is tops in our book.
