Customer reviewsVery difficult to install and noisy
Seems like Minka Aire fans all have a noise issue since this is the fourth one I installed and all of them have the issue to varying degrees. This larger one is very out of balance when running on high and there's no way to fix it because of the shape of the blades. They do include balancing weights, but there's nowhere to stick them that won't show and if you use the clips it scratches the finish on the plastic blades. I guess I'll just run it on medium at the most. Installing this was very frustrating. I've installed lots of fans in my life and this one was ridiculous. The remote control receiver doesn't fit correctly in the handing bracket. I finally just forced it in and put the cover on as best I could. It's a high ceiling so it doesn't show too much, but this is something that is clearly a design flaw. Also, this fan uses the more sophisticated remote control that has the reverse function and more speeds. Note that it does NOT work with the upgraded wall control even though it says it does. It works fine with the handheld remote that is included and yes, I know how to sync them up . The fan does look nice and the dimmable light is very bright. It has kind of a frosty finish on the plastic blades, so I'm anticipating that it will be difficult to clean when the time comes, but we'll see. I wouldn't buy it again.
