Complaint / review text:
Purchased ceiling fan in 2005, and over the last few weeks the fan began to run slow. A check of the light kit found the capacitor deformed, melted and cracked. A call to hunter fan reports "this is a common problem after a few years" rep advised. "you have to replace the whole light kit. That's your only option!"
The part is $42.00 to repair. Now my $100.00 fan costs over $142.00. Apparently hunter knows these components are a problems and a potential fire hazard. I feel that hunter knowingly is selling an inferior product.
