Ceiling Fan Install – B&Q Colours Hanki | Quick Jobs 03

Time to improve our bedroom wind situation! In this video I install a ceiling fan from B&Q, the rather oddly named “Colours Hanki”. A bit of a fiddly job but well worth it in the end.

This install video would also be similar to other Colours fans including the Shek, Tioga, Velva, Lari and Linto.

This is Making a Home, where myself and my wife Rach try our best to wrestle a rather old and dilapidated house into a more shipshape condition. We will DIY our way to the top of the home renovation mountain, come what may! Or will we, haha!

    Thx for the information mate. And what about the noise? Is it too much or not? Maybe it will be noisy after a couple mounts.

    I bought a similar one from Argos. But the bracket is very small. How do you know you hit the joists?

    I bought one of these fans from B&Q and I found it quiet difficult to install as the manual only had pictures but no instructions. The screws that go into the joists are rubbish and both of mine got threaded. The fan only had earth, live and neutral connections, so if your old ceiling rose or fan has a ‘loop’ connection then you have to buy a connector. I got my connector from tool stations the name of it is ‘Spring Level Connector’ and I bought the 3 terminal 250V 32A version (item: 45879). This did the job for me. The other two things I found difficult to understand and to do was the twisting and aligning in the socket where the pole connects to the ceiling brace and putting on the lighting element. The lighting element had very small screws, the wiring got in the way when I was putting it on and it didn’t sit right on when all the screws were tightened. Some screws went in further than others, so it looked lop sided. The very last thing is the wobble. I haven’t balanced it yet, however it does have excessive wobble and at the highest speed it is very noticable.

    I’m so glad you got that fan on secure. I tell you what – I would hate that fan to fall on my face.
    Also, I had no idea that thing can spin so fast! It’s like a helicopter. 👍
