MinkaAire Concept II 44 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Fan! We had a somewhat tight loft space and the Minka 44" flushmount was perfect. Cory, our Lighting Direct CSR was extremely helpful. We had questions about how the remote would work with a three way switch and he answered them all. The light and fan remember the remote settings and default to them when the wall switches are turned on and off. The fan is very high quality, very quiet, moves a lot of air and the dimming light goes from soft ambient to bright for reading. The manufacturer suggests having a fan mountable electrical box that will support the fan weight. We were able to find ceiling studs and sturdily mount the fan in the existing light box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect Have low ceiling in bedroom. Wanted ceiling fan with light, but they were all too tall. I had to walk carefully through my dark room to find a lamp to turn on, versus flicking the light switch right inside the bedroom door. This fan was very easy for me to put up. Wired myself into existing wires from old ceiling fan that didn't have a light. LOVE that it's 3 easy blades to clean. Modern-looking...sleek...the white color blends into my white ceiling giving my 14x14 a well-organized look. (No more 'welcome to my ceiling fan' when I walk in. Love the remote control...NO PULL CHAINS dangling! Fan does an excellent job....looks sharp. Will get another one for the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice This is an excellent purchase and a high quality fan. It is the second one I have acquired. It's very well built and is particularly smooth-running. It has multi-speeds, reverse motion, and operates with a remote unit. The only downside was with the 100w halogen lamp included with the unit. I was glad that it was included. Per instructions, I carefully installed it making sure not to get body oils on the lamp. However, the lamp burned out within an hour of installation. I suspect it already had been improperly handled before it was packed. I replaced it with another, making sure to clean it with alcohol even as it was taken from the package. This one has worked very well ever since. Despite that, I would strongly recommend this ceiling fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Quality and Style We needed a smaller profile ceiling fan with a specific diameter with a wireless remote to be installed in place of a high hat in our kitchen. This fit the bill perfectly. The "wing span" of the blades is just the right size. The sleek style is good for our decor. It does not dominate the room. Operation is so, so quiet. It's smaller, but powerful--creates a good current. Excellent quality. Easy for the electrician to install. Had to return an extra remote that I didn't need because it was already int he box. With Lighting Direct.com, the entire return process was seamless and hassle-free. Pleasant customer service rep! Thanks. --Satisfied customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big disappointment. This is a very nice looking fan and you will get lots of compliments on it. When it is new it is very quiet and does a nice job of moving the air. This fan is installed in our guest room so it doesn't get a lot of use. The problem is it is very unreliable and expensive to repair. I have had this fan for four years and have had to replace the receiver twice ( this is the electronic control mounted inside the fan that the remote talks to). The receiver costs about $50 and the electrician is another $100, so I have spent $300 to repair this fan. The fan blades are plastic and warp over time so now it is too noisy to use on high.The next time the receiver goes I will not be repairing it. I will buy another brand that might not look as nice, but that will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have 3 now - enough said I bought my first Minka Aire in 2004 when they still had a conventiaonl light bulb. I purchased two more this year. (I like the new miniature light bulbs. The fan features a three speed remote control, it's quite, and the remote makes reversing the fan very easy. The three blades seem to move the aire just fine. The electrician that helped me install it said it was the easiest install of a fan he has done. (He said that when he saw me snap the blades in in about 30 seconds). So far, my three fans (2 stainless and 1 brushed) have been terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks great, works great This is the second one I've purchased in the past year. Quality build and easy to install with minimal tools and fuss. The first one has been operating in my living room for the past year and it's runs as well as the first day I had it. Super quiet. I'd easily recommend this fan to anyone; particularly if you have low ceilings or want a flush mount fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Installation I read some of the one and two star reviews before purchasing this fan. Now that i have installed it (first time installer) within an hour (most of the time it took to take the old one apart and get it down off the ceiling) I love it! I wasn't exactly sure about the old wiring in my condo, but I purchased the wall remote instead of using a handheld remote (there are enough of those around the house) I turned it on without the blades and it worked! Everything worked fine. So I put in the lightbulb and cover and blades, and I was done. it is completely silent, just like my other 2 larger Minka Aire Fans I bought in 2005 and they are still like new. This brand I would recommend to anyone buying a new fan that needs a smaller blade length. I put mine in the kitchen and replaced an ugly small ceiling fan that was cheap and noisy and was hard to clean.

What color is the light on the oil rubbed bronze fan?

The color of the glass on the MinkaAire Concept II 44 in the Oil Rubbed Bronze is white, even though the picture shows it finished over as well as the rest of the fan.

where to purchase replacement bulb for concept II?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 requires a 100w Mini-Can Halogen bulb.

All information on every website I checked about the his fan says it has a 10.5" drop from ceiling with or WITHOUT the light kit. However, below you indicted that it is about 15 inches total with the light kit installed. Looking at the design of the fan, that doesn't make sense. Can you clarify whether it is a 10.5 foot drop from the ceiling with the light kit installed? Thanks.

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 has a 10.5" drop as you see it in the picture.

Can I purchase a light cover for this fan?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 comes with the light kit included.

Can the HH RC and Wall mounted RC both be purchased and used with just one fan

You have to have separate controllers for each fan. The MinkaAire Concept II 44 has the RC212 control.

These two functions can operate independently.

Can you hang this fan if you have a slope ceiling?

Yes, the MinkaAire Concept II 44 can be hung on a sloped ceiling.

Could this fan be used in a bathroom? If not do you have another recommendation.

This fan is not designed for use in wet locations. Bathrooms, due to the steam, are considered a wet location. An outdoor ceiling fan would be an acceptable option in a bathroom as they are approved for use in wet/damp locations.

Is the control box included with the fan or does it need to be purchased separately? If yes, what is the part number?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 includes all items needed for installation.

Is this an outdoor fan?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 is UL listed as indoor dry location and would not be appropriate for outdoor use.

The specs say that the fan measures 10.5" from the ceiling, so the blades must be closer to the ceiling than that. I need an EXACT measurement for how far the blades drop because I have only 8 inches to work with.

From the top to the very bottom of the glass is 11". From the top to bottom of the blades is 10.5".

What is meant by blade span? 44" per blade or total width of fan?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 blades measure 19" and the total span from one end to the other is 44".

A 100w bulb is the max this fixture will take.

Does the remote control have the timer function?

The remote has different settings, low, medium and high, but no timer.

Does the remote include a timer so the unit can be set to go off in 30 minutes to 4 hour intervals?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 doesn't have a timer.

I bought this fan and the wall control in the spring - love it! But a few days ago it stopped working- not even the power light is on, although the wiring in the wall is live. What might be wrong?

If your control is not working it could be a couple of reasons. It is either a bad control, or a electrical issue, or even can be a bad fan motor. You will want to contact Minka at 1 (951) 735-9220 and ask for their technical department. They can help assist you to troubleshoot to find the root of the problem.

I see that the full height is 10.25, what is the meaurement from the ceiling to the blades?

The height from the ceiling to the top of the blades is 10 1/2". THe over all height is 11 11/2 which is from the ceiling to the bottom of the fan.

Can this fan be used in a screened in porch or do I need to purchase one rated for outdoor use?

Thank you for your question. I would recommend finding a unit that is listed for outdoor use. Just the moisture in the air could have an effect on this unit down the road.

How do I change light bulb?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 shade is a twist on shade. By placing your hands on the glass after the light is off you do a 1/4 twist counter clockwise and the shade will release from the housing After which it is a standard threaded bulb inside.

How do I program 3 fans in the same room to do not turn on/off all at the same time?

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 (and all other Minka fans that have light kits) must work on separate remotes. These fans are self-learning and will simply have to be trained to their separate remotes at the time of installation.

I need a new remote and a transmitter for inside of the fan, do you sell accessories?

Of what material are the blades made? and the housing?

The blades are made of plastic and the housing is made of metal.

There is conflicting information on the info here about the overall height for this flush mounted fan. I have a low ceiling area in which I cannot have the figure drop lower than 10.5 inches so it is important that I know the correct size. Can you give me the exact measures from the top of the fixture to the bottom of it with or without the light, then from the top to the bottom of the blades (which most fans give you ceiling to blades measurement and this one does not)

The MinkaAire Concept II 44 measures 10.5" in height either with or without the light kit. Unfortunately Minka Aire does not provide the measurement for the blades themselves, however once could assume each would measure approximately 14" (44" diameter/2 minus 8" for width of light kit).

What are the shipping dimensions of this product?

Thanks for your question. The MinkaAire Concept II 44 ships in a box that is 24-3/8" x 13-1/2 x 13".
