In a sweeping turn of events, a recall issue has been ordered on Harbor Breeze Santa-Ana ceiling fans. The headlines read “the defective blades can become dangerous projectiles”
Which model has been recalled?
The Harbor Breeze Santa-Ana ceiling fan
Model number is LP8294LBN
Why has this fan been recalled?
There is the possibility that your Santa Ana ceiling fan can develop a problem with the blade holder. The blade holders can develop cracks over time and potentially break, which leads to the blade shooting off from the fan. Therefore, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall on the fan blades. This does not mean every Santa Ana fan will have this problem, but due to the possibility of your fan having a blade go flying off, it’s best to simply adhere to the recall and replace the blade holders.
How do I know if I have this fan?
Look on the fan motor, inside of the remote control. If you see this model number: LP8294LBN, then you have this fan.
You can also identify this fan as it has two dark brown, curved blades, frosted white bulbs, and a blade arm holder in a brushed nickel finish.
What should I do if I have this ceiling fan?
If you have this fan, then the blade holders (or blade arms) need to be replaced – but not the entire fan.
