I am surface mounting a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan directly to a wooden beam using a Wiremold Metal Ceiling Fan junction box. The wiremold box has two #10 screws which go from the back of the mounting plate, and extend through holes in the junction box cover that the ceiling fan mounting bracket is supposed to mount to.
Problem is -- (for this particular bracket?) the mounting bracket holes do not line up with the screws coming out of the wiremold box in ANY orientation. This is very frustrating. What are some quick and dirty methods to solve this (maybe drilling new holes in the bracket? And -- what is a proper way to address this without picking a new fan to match the wiremold layout. Are their bracket adapters or other hardware out there that I can pick up from the local home stores to plug into the equation?
