Hampton Bay Fan model K2 52" 5 blades was already installed when bought house 6 years ago. I switch to push air up in winter. The 2nd time fan was turned on after switching to up, the fan unwound from the drop post. I screwed the sleeve attached to the motor housing back onto the post. There are 4 'set' screws on sleeve. If I tighten the screws, I fear I'll strip threads. If I don't tighten, I fear the motor will unwind again. Any ideas? Thanks

Many ceiling fans use a pin thru the drop rod. Is there a hole for one? If so, get a large 'cotter pin' and install it one on both ends. Might be a good idea to drill such a hole if none is there and install 'pins' anyway.

I have not seen a ceiling fan that screwed on the extention rod. They always have a pin and plastic ball socket. It sounds like somone may have made up their own extion rod. I would replace it with the proper rod if that is the case.
