Finally finished painting the (danged popcorn...grrrr....) ceiling in
the living room....
Spent Sunday touching up a couple of places, and......
Spent three glorious hours putting up the new ceiling fan.
This one has a whiz-bang remote control (which is a good thing, as the
fan is 16' + up in the air.... the ceiling is 24')
The 'light' is controlled by the phazer remote.
I want the light controlled by the two wall switches.
After sending a question into Hunter (no reply...they were watching
the football games Sunday)..
I tried one of those 'Ask Us' expert websites..
Site was actually pretty good, as they hooked me up to a master
I had to pay (PayPal) a $9 'deposit' (which was immediately charged
BTW) to 'look at' my answer.
After five back and forth info exchange e-mails, thier tech bowed out
and said he had no answer to my wiring question.
I immediately sent off an e-mail telling them NOT to bill me the nine
They sent me a auto-reply saying that a refund could take up to 9
days, but that my 'deposit' could rest there awaiting my next
I replied to give me my money back if they could not answer my
Surprise! They credited my account an hour later.
Then they sent me a survey.
I answered it with very positive responses as to their service, but
that they were not able to answer my question.
Not a bad experience....
I still needed to figure out the wiring.
I wanted the light NOT to be controlled by the electronic controller.
I ran two more wires down the down rod tube and snipped the wires to
the light and wired them the old fashioned way.
Then I taped off the two cut wires.
The electronic controller thingie won't know the lights aren't there.
Having that deer stand, with it's comfy seat sure made hooking that
heavy ceiling fan a pleasure.
Even with the hook to hang it, it was still a hassle to hook
About 9pm last night we disassembled the deer stand and took it
Still have one wall and a little trim to finish... But the hard part
My feet, shoulders, back, and hands say "NFW!".....
My wallet says.. "Sure..What's next!"
Thank goodness for Advil.....
