Never buy......


a ceiling fan made by Litex. I have just gone through months of horrible customer service and have been treated with rudeness and disrespect when inquiring about a purchase. The stores that carry these fans have been great, but if you're considering buying a Harbor Breeze or Ellington fan, I would think about it first.

I never use anything but Hunter, and an occasional Casablanca. They rarely have problems, and stand behind their products when you do.

All the existing fans in our house when we bought it were Hampton Bay
One fan I replaced is a Hunter, old one will go in walk up attic

One the wife picked out for the Sunroom is a Harbor Breeze - Lowes

Quote:
Harbor Breeze fans are made specifically for Lowes primarily by Litex and are sold only at Lowes. Litex also makes fans for a variety of other retailers and brands, including the elite and elegant Ellington line of fans. It is likely you are familiar with Litex fans whether you realize it or not.
Quote:
Hampton Bay fans are not made by just one company but are usually made by various fan manufacturers including Minka Group, SMC, and King of Fans.
What problem did you have with your fan?

The fan itself was fine and Lowes customer service was great. But while ordering some replacement blades we were led on for over 2 months before a Lowes employee figured out that they (Litex) were just leading everybody on and had NO intention of actually shipping the blades that were ordered.
