Review of The Fairwind Indoor/ Outdoor Ceiling Fan – Pros & Cons with Ratings
As you can see by the ratings on the left the Harbor Breeze Brushed Nickel 60 inch ceiling fan gets an overall rating of 3.7 stars out of 5 stars coming from 6 reviews.
Only 67% of buying customers would recommend this ceiling fan with 67% giving it a 5 star and 33% giving it a 1 star.
Some have found that the workmanship of this ceiling fan can be faulty at times. For example, some of the motors in the fan have been installed crooked preventing the blades from turning. This is clearly a manufacturing problem.
Some have also found that the remote has stopped working after a few weeks. This can be remedied by checking out our article: Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Remote Trouble Shooting Guide and taking a look at the video below. It could simply be that you will need to re-learn the remote to the fan receiver by going through the learning process. The video in the section Harbor Breeze Fairwind Remote Control Troubleshooting below will explain how to do this.
The Harbor Breeze Fairwind 60 inch ceiling fan does not have a pull chain so you will need to use the remote control to change the fan speed and turn it on or off.
If you choose not to use the remote control and receiver then you can set up your fan with two wall switches, one for the fan and one for the light.
The LED bulb is non-replaceable with a minimum lifespan of five years. Not sure about you, but I would like my ceiling fan to be around longer than five years.
On the positive side, we found that the Fairwind ceiling fan has a very modern slender look and looks great in most settings. It moves a good amount of air and is very easy to install compared to many other ceiling fans.
A nice feature of this fan is that you can install a longer downrod for those higher ceilings. You will need to purchase the longer downrod separately.
We also like the indoor/outdoor rating of the fan meaning we can use it outdoors on the patio.

The remote control can be used to change the fan speed and turn the fan and light on or off. If you want to change the direction of the fan then you will need to use the forward/reverse switch on the fan itself.
