Frequent Asked Questions




#1. Are ceiling fans from the 1970s and 80s era some sort of valuable collectibles or something?


Nope. As far as I know, there's zero "collector" value in 1970s and 80s ceiling fans, and hardly anybody else in the world is at all interested in them, (You are welcome to surprise me, however). Even at prices around five and ten dollars, used ceiling fans from the 1970s and 80s era tend to languish unwanted at reused centers, flea markets, thrift stores, garage sales and even dumpsters and trash piles across the nation. However, there is collector value in pre 1950s ceiling fans. Ceiling fans between the late 1800s to the mid 1900s can be worth allot, but that's not what this website is based upon, this site is based upon 1970s and 1980s ceiling fans.



#2. I have a problem with my ceiling fan, Can you help me fix it?


I don't have a lot of time to help people fix their ceiling fans. That's why there is a topic in the forums called "Technical Problems" There are fan collectors that visit the forums quite often that will be glad to help you out. This topic is open to everyone and don't need an account to post.



#3. I need a part and don't know where to get it.


Home Depot, Lowes, Dans Fan City, or any place that specializes in ceiling fans, carries parts for ceiling fans such as, Replacement blades, Blade brackets, Light kits, Pull chain switches, Wall speed controls, and Oil. Note, there are a lot of ceiling fans that you can't get parts for anymore, that's why, in the forums there is a topic called "Looking For a Replacement Part" Maybe a collector has a part to spare. This topic is open to everyone and don't need an account to post.



#4 How do I post on the forums without a account?


Guest can post under the topics, Technical Problems, Looking For A Replacement Part, and Buy Sell And Trade without a account. Those topics are open for people who just visit this site, that need help to fix a ceiling fan and/or need a replacement part. Under those topics, click on New Thread, type your name (Doesn't have to be your full name), type the subject, and fill in the Security Check letters and numbers that you see above the Security Check box, type your message and than click on Post Message. It's as simple as that.



#5. Do I Sell Parts For Ceiling Fans?


No.... I get e-mails all the time in reference about parts and ceiling fans, questioning if I have them in stock to order. I do not have any inventory or stock. This is a collector site, not an online store. On an occasion I do buy, sell, or trades with collectors.
