About 9,300 Brewmaster ceiling fans have been recalled following consumer complaints.

The ceiling fan hub holding the blades can separate from the shaft when operating in reverse. If this happens, the fan blades and hub can fall. The company received two reports of this occurring.

The recall includes Brewmaster belt-driven fans powered by a remote motor. Fans with the following model numbers on their packaging are included in the recall: FP10AB, FP10AC, FP10BL, FP10PW, FP20AB, FP20AC, FP20BL and FP20PW.

They were sold at electrical distributors, fan specialty stores and lighting showrooms nationwide and online from June 2002 to December 2014 for between $800 and $2,500 per system.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fans and contact Fanimation for a retention collar for the Brewmaster fan.

Consumers can contact the Fanimation Recall Hotline at (888) 250-6458.
