Monarch 70" Indoor Ceiling Fan with 5 Blades - Includes Cool-Touch Remote, 8" Downrod
Nice fan, but had issues.
We built a house many years ago and bought all Kichler lighting/fans and loved them so for our current house, we bought this fan for the open area living/kitchen.
The first fan didn't work. Lighting Direct was great, they shipped us a new one very quickly. The new one worked great, but it had metal on metal vibration noises. We added some felt strips in between the metal pieces and it's great now - very quiet and moves alot of air. we love it now.

I bougth this fan through lighting direct and got excelent service in shipping of product. I had a friend with great experince put it up, it took 2 hours. It ran smoothly for a week and then developed some strange noices from time to time during the nigth, that is annoying, but it comes and goes, so I will live with it, It moves a lot of air in my large bedroom, and enable us to reduce AC consumption. I also had to call kichler for a new remote as it stopped working after a week, and it was send promptly to me

Great product, outstanding value
Easy to install. Silent at all speeds. Very little vibration or motion. Very well made. I'd highly recommend it. It moves a lot of air at low RPM.
There is no "Green Grounding Wire" to run up through the downrod as mentioned and shown in the instructions. Separate instructions are provided in the vaulted ceiling kit. You'll need to read and integrate those with the fan's own installation instructions. The vaulted ceiling adapter kit replaces similar components provided with the fan. Not difficult to do, but you'll want to carefully set those replaced components aside. These are not so clearly identified. The downlight can only be controlled on or off. I would have preferred a dimming function. The remote has buttons for both a downlight and an uplight, but there is no available uplight for this model fan. The remote control works very well. Only power needs to be provided to the fan to control speed and light. The remote does it all without the need for any special wiring or special switches. Makes electrical hookup a breeze!
One lamp shade arrived broken and they were quick to replace it. Excellent customer service was provided by LightingDirect.com. Used their online reporting form and it worked very well. Nice online system!
Very good website. I called for the special discount. Very knowledgeable and courteous staff. I will buy from them again.
