  • Oh's and Aw's

    Blades are clear plastic, they don't looks strong, but hey, don't hang on them. They wind down behind the light, so it just looks like a light fixture when in use. This fan is very quite and sturdy. The light fixture is kind of big, but that's probably so the fan blades can't be seen. We get lots of compliments on this fan.

  • Love this Fan!

    This fan lives up to the hype. The blades are translucent and fold into the light when not in use. The light is bright enough for what I needed. I like the modern style .

  • History with Hunter

    Well even though I purchased two of the Fanaways in May in process of a 3 room Reno they were just installed July 9; anybody who has ever lived through a Reno knows why big delay. As the title says I've had history with Hunter fans over 25yrs and fully expect the same function&reliability as I've enjoyed in the past.When I went to the website to look for ceiling fans I discovered the Fanaway and it was love at first sight soooo unique and I had to have them; everyone who sees them thinks they're great too!!!

  • so glad my daughter talked me into this

    I purchased this fan and had it installed over our new kitchen island. I had been warned against installing a fan in the kitchen by my general contractor, but my daughter talked me into this fan because of it's retractable blades. I am very, very pleased with the kitchen light/fan. It gives a lot of light and quietly circulates the air wonderfully. It is almost like watching a waterfall when the blades expand and retract. I found it so beautiful that I placed a short video on my Facebook video, and my cousin decided to buy one too! The fan was more expensive than I was hoping to pay, but I think it was worth the extra expense. I was able to take advantage of an Overstock coupon which reduced the price by 10%. I highly recommend this product.

  • Great fan - flourescent light tube

    This is a great fan. Whisper quiet, 3 speeds, and can run fan with light off. The design is lovely and the blades retract and open beautifully. The only thing I didn't know - - or didn't sink in before purchase - - is that the light is a circular fluorescent tube. That's perfect for a kitchen, etc. The light is VERY bright. For the bedroom (where I put the second fan I purchased), I'd like to see if I can get a light that's more natural, less harsh, and if I can install a dimmer.

  • Perfectly unique Fan/Light combo

    I've been resisting installing a ceiling fan because I'm just not into the look. but when this came out, it was the perfect compromise. The fan blades retract when not in use, and leaves you with a totally cool light pendant fixture. I almost had to return this and was so quick and responsive. As it turned out, I found an electrician who was able to install it so that I can use a light switch instead of the built-in receiver/transmitter. I have a super slopped ceiling, and if you use the receiver/transmitter inside the canopy, the fan wouldn't hang down vertically. After googling many sites, it turned out that the wiring is just a standard 3-wire that you can attach to a 2-way wall switch. Went to Home Depot and got the Hunter 2-way switch and an extra long down rod, and the electrician was able to install no problem. Also in googling, people were complaining how the compact fluorescent was too "cold and bright", but it was fine for us. You can replace it with a warmer bulb which we may at some point, but we're happy for now. The price here was $100 cheaper than Amazon but the price has changed since I bought it.

  • This fan is a true beauty..super silent and sleek!

    If you love great design and engineering-you're in luck. The super silent retracting blades make this an beautiful and hardworking addition to any room. The light is a little too bright for me, but that is a minor thing. I am showing this number off to all my friends.

  • positive

    This was a nice fan but not enough information about installation. When I got the fan I had to send it back because you need 8 foot ceilings to install it my ceilings are 71/2 ft. IIt would have been nice for that to be posted on the site. The return of this fan was very easy and good customer service.

  • Amazing fan ... blades disappear when not in use

    This fan is the cutest! The blades are see through and hide above the light when not in use. Would love to install more of these fans in the rest of the house.

Questions & Answers

  • can this fixture be connected to a wall switch and does it have to use a florescent bulb? This fan only runs in one direction is this correct?

    • Hello bigsis63, there are no pull chains on the fan, so the wall switch would have to have speed control capabilities. The fan uses a remote control as its mode of operation.Yes, the fan only runs in one direction due to the retracting blade design. It only uses one (1) 40 Watt Circline T-5 bulb.

  • Can fanaway be flush mounted?

    • I'm not sure what you mean by flush mounted. It's obviously got to be away from the ceiling so the blades can turn. I had my installed by a licensed electrician. There's the fan, the short piece that connects to the part that goes up against the ceiling and that part is flush, but it's pyramid shaped. It looks exactly like it does in the photo.

  • Does this fan run in both directions for heat dispersion and cooling?

    • Yes, it does.

    • I purchased the fan and can not tell how to make the fan run in the other direction. Is it configured to pull air up from the floor. There is no switch or remote settintg

    • When fan is turned on, the blades swing out under centrifugal force. You can mount it in two positions. There must be another way to install the blades so that they run the other direction.
