Why is this thread still alive? Either fix it or take it back, pick one, eithrr will be fine. Yes it seems like both options suck, but neither is that bad, and Hunter is a good company in my experience, so this isnt likely to happen again.

Your question has been answered multiple times.

(1) Take the screw with you to hardware store and get a tap for that size.

(2) Take the whole thing down and return it for a new one.

Complaining that it's too hard does not fix the problem. Do something.

If I was installing this and had the problem, I would tap the hole.

Realistically, the hole is tapped but the powder coating is probably just covering it up. This happens a lot.

To the guys telling me to take it back thx...

I asked a few questions while I was out and was told there would be too much a hassle trying to find something to tap the screw hole and when I talked to the lighting mgr where I got it, he offered to knock $25 off the fan for my troubles, which about pays for the gas driving back and forth from there twice BUT was still nice of them to do...

Fan is now up and not only is there a fresh globe that is not cracked BUT all the screw holes were properly threaded this time.
