Are you struggling to determine the make, or model of your ceiling fan? Maybe you know your fan is a Harbor Breeze, or maybe you don’t. Maybe you have no idea what fan you have at all! That’s totally okay, we’re here to help you. Many brands of ceiling fans do look alike, so figuring out what ceiling fan you have will help to determine what replacement parts you need – along with many other answers to particular questions you may have about your fan.
With some ceiling fans, the manufacturer label is on the top of the motor housing. Hunter is a good example of this. If you can’t see what the label says, try using a mirror to make it out. If there’s no label, time to drop the canopy. This does not mean you need to remove the fan – just need to lower the “shroud.” What is the shroud, you ask? Well, good question. The shroud is the name for the covering, for the mechanical and electrical connections that you find at the ceiling.
Remember – you don’t need to remove the ceiling fan completely from the ceiling in order to determine this information!
Any kind of sticker is helpful, even if it’s not a logo or you can’t make out the manufacturer from the label. Generally, try running any numbers you find on any labels through a major search engine. You should be able to determine the manufacturer and the model of your fan this way.
