Beware
1 Star Review   By member MinkaAireWary - Jun 1, 2007   

Strengths: Beautiful design

Weakness: Sounds like a helicopter

Beware of this Minka Aire Hearst Castle Ceiling Fan Model F881-BCW. My unit cost me $195 to install, only to find out that the noise from the motor and the air flow is completely unacceptable. I called MinkaAire and their customer support was extremely unresponsive, taking multiple attempts to get to an engineer, being promised that they'll look into ways to reduce the fan speed, waiting for my follow-up to come back with an answer, and the answer ? They can't do anything about it. They couldn't tell if this was a defective unit or the design itself. The RPM is so high that at high speed you feel like your ceiling is going to take off! I'm returning it after 5 frustrating months and I have to see how much refund of all my expenses I will get! I'll try to post what happened once this is done. Very disappointing and frustrating treatment by such a giant manufacturer. Incompetence and disdain of the customer should be their motto.
