Ceiling fan used parts
I was doing a job for Janis Bee who lives in Chino, California. She needed my help to install a ceiling fan she purchased at an auction.
This post shows the seven steps to install a new ceiling fan missing the parts.
Step 1: Above right Fig.1 shows the fan that Janis purchased at an auction. Below she had taken all the parts out of the box and realized that she was missing most of the parts needed to install the ceiling fan.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows that she tried to install the fan herself. The fan was wired correctly but the fan came with most of the parts missing and no instructions sheet.

Step 4: Fig.3 shows where the ceiling fan blades will be attached. The problem was the box did was missing all the fan blade screws. Janis still had the old ceiling fan in her trash can that she had removed earlier and replaced with new unit. Cannibalizing the fan blade screws and rubber fan gasket from the old unit and inserting them into the new fan worked perfectly. There was enough screws to install all four blades. The old screws were dull bronze in color but they had a slip washer and worked fine for securing the blades.
