Large ceiling fan won't spin fast

Ok, we got the 68 inch fan up and it has a remote control, but the fan doesn't want to spin fast on the fast button. My 52 inch ceiling fan in bedroom spins really fast. This large one seems to only spin like on medium. Hardly feel the wind.

Are you sure the motor is set to the fastest speed? Set the fan to fast with the pull chain and then set the remote to high.

1. There is no pull chain with this 68" fan and no light.
2. I called Home Depot and they hooked me up to the manufacturer, which is Hampton Bay. She said large blades do not spin fast. I read the revues on this fan and they all really liked theres even when it spins slow like this. They prob. have higher ceilings and attach the pole. Our ceilings are only 8 feet. So this one s going back and buying a 52 or 56 inch. We have a 56' Hampton Bay (looks like the Antigua but light colored blades) out on the patio and that spins fast. (no remote with this or light)
3. Thank you
