This is my first time in the discussion boards. How do I convert a pre-exisiting can/recessed light to a ceiling fan? The kitchen has all recessed lights. I would like to remove on of them over the kitchen sink and replace it with a small lighted ceiling fan. There are 5 cans in the kitchen right now, with a switch in 2 different locations (on different walls). How would I go about strengthening the ceiling, if I am not next to a joist. How about using the existing electrical? Do I need a seperate line for the fan and the cans? How about a seperate switch for just the fan? Can I just use the same lines & switches to turn the power on to the fan/light, then I could just use the chains when needed. Although, this kind of defeats the purpose of putting the lighted fan in the kitchen. And anything else that I may have missed.
