It will help a lot if you can get a number or name off a label.

Welcome to the forums.

I agree with Tolyn. Look for any type of label..... even a UL listing number would be helpful.
In your picture..... where the two fan supports join the hanging bar...... looks like an oval label.

I use google images to locate fans. I never realized there were so many dual fan units.
In my search.... the fans from californiafancompany.com are the closest match.

Fan search by image

Thank you both. Now I just need to figure out how to get at the label that is 18' off the floor

Hi, it appears that a blade has broken off, is that what the problem is? Have you taken this pic to a good fan showroom?

If the broken blade is the problem then remove the opposite one and it should spin fine as that will balance it out.

Looks like a Fanimation Palisade ceiling fan to me.

I was looking at fanimation but the blade mounting looked different as well as the center part where the horizontal and vertical pipes connect.

How about binoculars to see the label ?

Try putting a camera (cell phone if you don't have a gopro) on the end of a long pole while standing on a ladder.

Okay, so then how do you snap the pic? Not seeing how that could work.

Have the camera/cell phone on video. I am not up to date on technology, but can it be streaming to a monitor or other cell as it is videoing. If so it would be easier. But if you can see where the tag is located it shouldn't be to hard to get pictures of the area.

If only Q was available. He or James Bond would know how. You can also use a drone, but be ready to spend $$$$.

The question is what are you going to do about replacing the entire fan or just the blade. I am guessing you need to rent some scaffolding to safely work up that high.

Use the timer function on the camera.

I thought of that but video would be easier. Also, using some kind of camera on a long pole (kind of like a selfy pole with a cell phone on it . The selfy pole probably won't be long enough, but tape that pole to a longer pole such as a an extendable pole I have for washing high windows, changing lights in ceiling cans, or painting.)

Also, I was thinking it would probably be easier to get the picture from wherever the photo posted by the OP was taken than from below with or without a ladder or scaffolding.
