    I installed a 52 inch Hunter ceiling fan and also a remote control that was bought seperately.
    The problem that I have is after the fan has been on high for 30 minutes(almost to the second) it starts "ticking".
    It dosen't happen on any other speed and will stop when I change speeds.
    It only lasts for 10 minutes.
    The fan does not wobble and the pull chains are not hitting it.

    I think it's coming from the remote because it sounds like a switch clicking but my friend doesn't think so.

    It's very annoying because I read before I go to sleep and it starts clicking right when I'm ready to fall asleep.

    Any suggestions?
    Did I give enough info?

    Its not the small piece of chain hitting the fan body is it? If its not that, just return the fan and get a new one.

    Check for loose fan blades.
