MinkaAire Acero Reviews
Rated 5 out of
Beautiful and quietSince putting up these fans in my house, everyone that enters notices them and LOVES them. They put out a gentle soft breeze that is completely noiseless on the lowest setting. The light can be dimmed to the level you prefer and it remembers that setting everytime you turn it off and on. Lovely....no more blaring ceiling fan light! The wall installed remote control is very convenient and no more lost remotes! I highly recommend this fan for any house.

Great Fan - Lighting Could Be BetterThe fan is a little complex to install, but worth the effort. It looks great, and works almost completely silently. It starts up and stops very smoothly, and is mostly unnoticeable while it moves enough air to make our underventilated house feel cool. I bought a second one for another room! It's also very energy efficient compared to AC. I have only two criticisms: the downlight is not that bright compared to the multi-bulb incandescent lights I had in the same fixture positions, and the lighting dimmer control doesn't allow you to easily turn the light up and down like a regular dimmer. It goes all the way to full on, then works it's way back down to the dimmest setting, before ramping up again. Despite the control layout (which appears to have an up and down control), you can't easily turn the light up and down. Still good enough to make me buy a second one, however! I recommend this product.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeousThis fan is one of the best decisions I made in my remodel. Every single person that sees it comments on how gorgeous it is - super sleek, interesting, and effective. I love it.

Love, Love this ceiling fan!This fan is beautiful. Well worth the money. I have never seen a fan that moves so much air. After I finish cooking dinner, I put the fan on high and in just a few minutes the kitchen has cooled down. My husband said it was not too bad to hang the fan either and I really like the wall control that came with it.

Doesn't hold up wellGreat looking fan, but doesn't hold up well. I have had four fans mounted on my porch for three years. One has developed a clicking noise, one oniy operates at medium speed, the other two are OK so far. The nickel finish on all fans is beginning to show rust eventhough they are not exposed to rain. Each fan must have it's own remote eventhough they are only 20 feet apart.

Great Job!I saved a ton on the fans I ordered from you and I've since had them installed in my new apartment. They look perfect! From the quality of the product to the professional customer service and delivery, I will highly recommend you to any friends with lighting needs. Thanks, Bill U.

Looks great!Doesn't, however, move as much air as I had hoped. I have it in a smaller l-shaped Lvngrm/dngrm, and it is adequate...but the three blades would not work in a larger space in my opinion.
How do I change fan rotation on Minka Aire Acero? My receiver went bad & I just purchased WC223 replacement .
A. The MinkaAire Acero 3 does have the reverse fan mode. To do this have the fan running in low power and hit the reverse button on the remote provided. If for whatever reason there is no remote and the fan is hardwired controlled manually from the wall then the reverse mode could not be activated.
How do I manually change the blade rotation on the MinkaAire Acero?
A. Thank you for your question. There is usually a switch on the fan itself that will change the direction of it. Hope this helps!
Is there a wall mounted control for this fan?
A. The MinkaAire Acero does include a wall mounted control panel.
My clients purchased 2 Minka- Acero ceiling fans. Can both fans be contolled with one remote?
A. The MinkaAire Acero can be controlled with 1 remote as long as they both have the same receiver.
We have a slanted ceiling. Will this fan still work?
A. The MinkaAire Acero will work on a slanted ceiling yes.
What is the height from ceiling to bottom of light with the smallest downrod?
A. The height from the ceiling to the bottom of the fan with the smallest downrod is 13-1/2".
Can this be mounted on a 45 degree angle and do I need an adapter to do so?
A. You will need the adapter A245
Does anyone make a low ceiling fan with a light that can go brighter than 100 w?
A. The MinkaAire Acero can't be mounted as a low ceiling fan. However the F518 or F519 would meet your requirements.
Can this fan be operated with a three way switch?
A. The MinkaAire Acero is compatible with the Minka Wall Switches and Remotes. Please take a look at the RC212.
Can you purchase the light kit separately if you wanted an additional ceiling light in the same room as the fan?
A. Unfortunately the MinkaAire Acero does not have a separate light kit available.
I purchased this fan, but can't use the switch that was included with it because we already have a switch on the wall. How can I control the fan and light separately? I assumed it would have a pull chain.
A. The MinkaAire Acero is meant to work with the wall control that came with the the fan. The only other way to work the fan without the wall control would be to purchase the Minka Aire RC212 - Hand Held Remote.
Is there a wiring diagram for the minkaaire acero model: ac-552(f601) "hh" ?
A. Are you attempting to repair this item?
Where is the manual switch to reverse directions on the Mink Aire Acero?
A. The MinkaAire Acero is reversed with wall control. There is a button on the wall control for reversing.
Can this be wired so you can control the fan separate from the light? I want the light on , but not the fan sometimes.
A. The MinkaAire Acero features the WC212 wall control, which will allow you to operate the lights independently.
how much air does this fan move compared to a 5 blade fan.
A. The MinkaAire Acero on it's high speed has a volumetric flow of 6100 CFM. In comparison, the MinkaAire Como 5 Blade 54" Ceiling Fan on it's high speed has a volumetric flow of 5300 CFM.
Is it possible to replace the halogen bulb with a more efficient CFL or LED?
A. You would just need to make sure they have the same base which with these bulbs would not be hard at all.
Is there hand held remote control available to buy with the MinkaAire Acero 3 Blade 52" Ceiling Fan - Light,
A. The hand held remote control for the MinkaAire Acero is the MiankaAire RC212.
What is the fan blade color on the polished nickel version of this fan?
A. The MinkaAire Acero in Polished Nickel has Silver blades.
Would you be able to tell me the fitter size on the shade of the acero fan and how it is attached (set screws,ect.)??
A. The MinkaAire Acero light shade is attached by screwing it in to the base of the fan. The shade has a fitter size of 4-3/8".

Can you switch the size of the fan blades for smaller ones?
The MinkaAire Acero fan unfortunately does not have any other blade options.
