Complaint / review text:
We purchased a Hunter Viente model #53035 from Home Depot about two years ago. Today, I replaced a light bulb. When the bulb was almost screwed in completely, the light fixture started throwing sparks and then caught fire. I was able to put out the fire before any serious damage occurred. This is our second Viente. It was a replacement/swap for the first one purchased less than one week earlier. There was a problem with the light fixture on the first one as well. It never caught fire... It just did not work.
Based upon all of the comments I have read, contacting the manufacturer will be a very frustrating waste of time. Had the Viente not caught fire, I was planning to purchase three more Hunter fans (diff models) to replace ceiling fans in other rooms. Now I will be buying four ceiling fans... And none of them will be a Hunter.
