Welcome from another Badger!
Like you, I prefer the look of incandescent. I have found that these LED bulbs do a pretty good job of mimicking the incandescent look. This is a Menards link, but it is...

Stefanie,
He said it might be a Harbor Breeze (Lowe's store brand). Hard to say age but the medium base light socket suggests pre-2007 when candelabra base light kits became standard for ceiling...

I had that exact same fan in my old house, and it ran well. Mine was a bronze color, but yours looks like it was spray painted silver at some point. Sadly, I never pulled it down to look for any...

That fan appears to have an axial fan, and will probably need that 8" duct. You might want to exchange it for a more traditional centrifugal fan, which can easily move 70CFM through a 4" duct.

Thank you. Sadly, I did not know about the special roller. To be honest, I'm sort of regretting spending over $100 for three cans of this product. It appears to be for very worn decks, which mine is...

This is a really common issue with inducer motors. Sometimes they will whine like that for many years without issue. Mine has been doing that for five years. Best to replace it though.

Also, note that that is a 50Hz motor, not a 60Hz motor. That may or may not be an issue as far a speed is concerned.

Have you looked very carefully inside the female connector? Take a small ty-wrap tail & carefully clean out the female connector. It is possible that there is lint in there, preventing the plug from...

Weird lines in yard

After the snow melted, I spotted this strange line across my yard. It is a couple inches wide, and has a concave profile. It almost looks like some small animal was tunneling under the...
