My current ceiling fan already has a wall control with an on/off switch and a variable speed slider. What should I do with this switch when installing my Minka Aire Wave fan (which comes with a remote)?
William G on Sep 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You will want to change your current wall controller to a regular on/off switch and keep it in the "on" position. Then use the remote control for all fan functions. We also offer a recommended/optional wall control as well (2-wire switch). If you are unfamiliar with installing a fan such as this, we recommend consulting with a certified electrician for further details on electrical codes and installation requirements for your specific project.

Is the white option a glossy white or a flat or matte white?
Jeff L on Aug 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Jeff, it is glossy white. It is a beautiful fan. I also bought it in the distressed KOA for another space.
I have Style 2X916. Where is the manual switch located to change fan direction? It is not on outside of unit.
Noelle S on Aug 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's under the canopy You have to lift the canopy cover and the switch is there Not the best design function if the fan is on a high ceiling and even for a standard ceiling height it's difficult. But it's a great fan otherwise

There is no remote function for it and must be toggled manually I question doing this at all design wise as the blades are so uniquely and well designed that it seems it is meant to only be clockwise and not counter clockwise

Hope this helps you If you have the Minka manual that came with your fan it has an illustration of the canopy part for reference
I have a very similar Minka Aire Wave white ceiling fan that hums when it is on. Others have commented about the annoying humming sound of this or an earlier nearly identical fan. They asked if the company has done anything to stop the hum noise. Does this model not have the humming noise as it is perhaps a later one of the same style?
Second question: What does the optional wall mount switch with dimming feature cost and how do I order it? And can both remote and wall mount switch be operative or must it be one or the other that is installed and utilized.
JOHN F S on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry to hear the issues you are having with your fan. It sounds like an installation issue. Before you purchase any additional controls, I would recommend contacting one of our technicians and they will be happy to assist you. They can be reached by phone, email, or chat:

Love this fan! It does a great job of circulating the air so I don't have to crank up the AC so much. And it does it quietly -- while screaming sophistication in design. It's fun!

Love these fans!
We have purchased three of these for our home and will be buying more for other rooms as we complete our remodel. I love the design, great airflow plus the white blends into the ceiling so they are not a focus in the room. We get compliments on them every time someone visits. Highly recommend!

We installed the Minka Aire Wave in our master bedroom.
I like the look of the fan, and it is very effective at moving the air.
However, the motor has a loud humming noise, which makes it difficult to sleep with the fan on.

I wanted to rate this higher BUT it is not quiet enough.
I had this installed by a licensed electrician. I wanted to give it a 5 star rating based on looks alone. I can't because of the humming sound that increases on higher speeds. I let it run for 48 hours on my electricians advise, based on the manufactures instructions. The hum never went away even on low.

Pros: It is very attractive. Definitely moves air well even on low. At higher speeds it is amazing in creating heavy breezes. On looks alone I will keep it in our great room.

Cons: The humming sound is noticeable even on low and would not be good in a bedroom. The humming noise alone makes it undesirable in any room that has no additional sounds to distract you (TV, music, kids, conversation, traffic).
