Complaint / review text:
My first complaint is the fact that Hunter does not sell a 6" extension rod for their fans. By doing so, they create the problem of someone installing the fan illegally, (must be 7' from floor to blades, code), or just flat not selling the fan and the consumer going with another manufacturer that does sell a 6" extension to meet their needs. And yes, there are plenty of fan companies out there who sell fans with 6" rods.
My next complaint is much like all the others where those Hunter products are not to the quality that they once were. I'm an electrical contractor with 32 years experience, who installs fans all summer every summer and the list of complaints for Hunter fans includes bad remotes, bad motors, bad finishes, parts so tightly put together you can do a field change without stripping the screws, and my list could go on. I wonder if this quality control could have something to do with the fact that these fans are produced in China where the quality control is not up to par. I used to always recommend Hunter fans to all my customers, but not anymore. I'm sick and tired of a company that couldn’t care less about its products’ quality or its customers’ happiness with it. All they care about is the dollar which they won't have when no one buys their products. Good luck with that, Hunter!
