Torrington Fan Remote Control Troubleshooting
The biggest complaint and problems we hear and see about the Torrington ceiling fan seems to be that the fan remote control uses what we would call an “odd” battery.
What IS this odd battery that you may need to buy to use the remote?
It’s a 12 V MN21 / A23 little Duracell remote control battery. One is included with the fan when you purchase the Torrington ceiling fan.
This “odd” battery is about half the length of your typical standard AAA and the diameter is the same. If you search online you can find 2 for around $5
There are no traditional pull chains with this fan so the remote will control the lights (including dimming) and ceiling fan speeds separately.
Can The Torrington Ceiling Fan be used with a Shortened Downrod?
The simple answer ro this question is “We used a shortened downrod and we simply LOVE, LOVE this ceiling fan.” One customer stated: “I wanted it for years and after finally purchasing it I only regret not getting it sooner.”
So, you do not need to install the ceiling fan using the long downrod. The Torrington fan can be installed with a shorter downrod that is included in the fan package.
Torrington Ceiling Fan Reviews – What We and Customers Think
After more than 68 reviews we find that 82% of purchases would recommend this ceiling fan and would give this ceiling fan a 4.3 star rating out of 5 stars.
Many of the customers share the same sentiments about this ceiling fan. The main one being: “I absolutely love the look of this fan.“
This ceiling fan is suitable for smaller rooms as it’s not too heavy or dark.
The actual ceiling fan installation does take some time and patience to install, and the remote control receiver doesn’t seem to fit well inside the housing, it really is too big for the housing, and it is not at all balanced, No matter what is done with the provided balancing kit, it just does not seem to solve this problem.
Because of the balancing problem, unfortunately, we can only run the fan on its Low and Medium-speed settings, as it wobbles way too much on the high-speed setting.
Maybe if the fan was mounted on a flat ceiling (mine is vaulted) it would work better, however, I don’t really know. But, as we said, it is super great and it fits in more than perfectly with my home.
