Installing a ceiling fan requires:
- Install ceiling fan junction box
- Attach fan to new box
- Assemble fan
- Patch drywall or plaster
- Prime and paint
- Install wired switch or remote
Make sure a proper junction box is installed. Ceiling fans require special boxes that are designed to hold the weight of a ceiling fan. Improper installation could result in the fan working loose from the mount.
Also check that the fan housing does not wobble or vibrate when turned on.
