Kichler ceiling fans can be found in almost any home. They can change the room temperature by distributing the air in the room. A ceiling fan gives us a lot of comfort, especially in the hot summer. We often are asked by our site visitors: what are some important parts that are required to make a Kichler ceiling fan work? If you don’t know about some of these main parts, then just keep reading the below article to understand some relevant information.
The electric motor is the main part of a ceiling fan. The main role of the electric motor is to transfer the electric energy into mechanical energy. The electric current gets passed from the motor, which makes the coil rotate. Then this rotation energy gets transferred to the fan blades. In general, the motor uses a single phase capacitor with a frequency of 50 Hz.
Kichler Ceiling Fan Mount
The mounting mechanism is something that is required to attach your Kichler fan to the ceiling. Many mechanisms are available in the market, but the most commonly used mechanism is the ball, socket system, and J hook with shackle clamp. The ball and socket system fits the bottom of the down rod, while the J hook and shackle clamp fit directly to the ceiling of the rubber grommet. It is one of the most important parts of the fan, that will prevent the fan from falling down.
Kichler Ceiling Fan Blades
Fan blades help to distribute air in the room. They are attached to the center of the ceiling fan, and the blades are constructed of different materials such as aluminum, steel, wood, etc. Aluminum is considered as the best option, which is very light and also enhances the efficiency of the ceiling fan. Some ceiling fans ship with three blades, some have four and some have five. It depends on the type of ceiling fan.
Kichler Ceiling Fan Blade Bracket
The fan blade bracket is another important part of a ceiling fan, which has the main role to attach the fan blades properly to the fan. Blade brackets are mainly made up of metal, so they can take the load of the blades and can control them while in use. The fan blade bracket is attached to the fan blades through bolting or riveting.
Kichler Ceiling Fan Remotes
One of the most common items that any homeowner looks for, when it comes to ceiling fans is a replacement remote. Although we do recommend troubleshooting the remote first (and your receiver) if you’re having a remote problem. Try that first. It’s usually straight forward to troubleshoot the remote. One of the most common and straightforward things to check, is to simply try replacing the batteries. If that does not work, the next thing to check is the dip switches to make sure they’re set properly – or any other form of programming that is relevant to your remote and to the fan that you have. If troubleshooting does fail, we can assist with finding a replacement Kichler ceiling fan remote.
If you can’t find a remote that’s compatible with your fan, sometimes it’s also useful to look at third party universal remotes that may be compatible. Universal remotes have a wide range of compatibility, that can help bridge the gap when you simply cannot find a remote for your fan. This is more of an issue when you have an older ceiling fan. If your fan was manufactured more then ten years ago, it’s possible that you could have a hard time finding the replacement remote. Worse, sometimes even when you’re able to locate the manual for your particular Kichler ceiling fan, it may not necessarily have the part number that you need to find what remote is compatible with your fan.
