Explain set it. Generally there is a switch on the fan to reverse, are you attempting reversing by that switch or a wired in wall switch? If it runs in one direction it will run in the other. Something in the control is broken or not wired correctly.

Should the blades of a reversible ceiling fan turn clockwise or counterclockwise in the Summer?


Seeing as to how hot air rises and cold air falls, you may get better results with air circulation if you have them blowing upwards (as it will help pull the cooler air up and flow elsewhere.)

Fan has a switch for winter and summer. Is it up or down for summer?


This is probably a reversing switch changing the rotation direction. Check the air flow from the fan to find if it is pulling air up or pushing it down. Pushing down from the ceiling will be the 'winter' setting, pulling up, the summer. Since warm air gathers at the ceiling, it is beneficial to have it move that air downward during cold weather and have it pull up cooler air from the floor in summer. I frankly don't notice much difference though.

How to set humidistat for different seasons.


Vick, depending on the season and the humidity level in your home, is what determines the setting. For example, in the winter you want to maintain at least a 40% humidity level in your home. It will feel more comfortable, the heat will feel warmer and it will help keep static electricity at bay. In the Summer, you'll want to remove as much humidity as possible, as this will make the air feel cooler. If you have ceiling fans in you home, run them Clockwise at the highest speed you can tolerate. The more wind chill you generate, the cooler the air will feel and you won't have to set your AC at a lower temperature. Thereby, saving money. In the winter, run the ceiling fans Counterclockwise on the lowest speed. This will take the heat off the ceiling, wash the walls and bring it back down.

Clockwise and Counterclockwise are determined by looking up at the fan blades. Also, reversible ceiling fans have a switch on the side (where the pull chain is located). Generally, switch-up is Counterclockwise and switch down is Clockwise.

Hope this helps you to keep your home comfortable year round.

Should ceiling fans work "forward" or "backward"


During the winter you want the fan to blow downward so that the heat that collects at the ceiling is circulated,

I know I should reverse the direction of the ceiling fan for summer/winter. Which way is which?


you want the fan to turn anti clock ways in winter as this sucks the cold air upwards pushing the hot air from the roof downwards. and clock wise in summer blowing cool air downwards to cool you

take care
please remember to rate this repair.

Ceiling fan does not blow air


I would guess that the blades are on upside down. Ceiling fans are not supposed to work the same as desk fans though. The idea is not to create a strong flow of air but to create a "cooling breeze" by speeding the convection currents. They work better when they are running slowly (like you see in the old movies)

I have found the right solution to the fan not working in the right direction. the problem is that is a pcs of trash, i ripped mine off the ceiling and tossed it out the window and guess what it, it flew...


Did you hit the reverse direction switch located on the upper fan body. Upward direction is for winter as it blows up toward the ceiling pushing rising heat out towards walls and down to floor. Downward direction sucks heat off ceiling (summer months) and pushes cooler air that is on the ground toward the ceiling, thus giving a cooler airflow. You do know that there is a little black switch up there, right?

Heat temperature issues with Goodman GMP 100-4 furnace


69,000 btuh is adequate for a 12-1400 square foot house.
Otherwise, your thermostat simply tells the furnace to cycle on/off.
If it calls for heat and does not come on, the problem is with switches and relays within the furnace.
Your setting the temp higher only causes the other parts to keep trying until they finally light and heat.
This is based on your information saying it will cycle on and blow cool air--not hot air.
You will have several temperature variations from floor to ceiling.
You probably have ceiling vents as well.
You need a technician to verify the rollout switches, fan relay, inducer fan etc. if the furnace is not firing everytime you call for heat.

Fan not blowing air.


theres a small toggle switch on the fan

that switch is to change direction on the way the fan is blowing

one direction for downward blowing

the other direction is for upward blowing

depends on the area you have to determine which is the best, but i doubt area restriction will hamper force air blowing, air will flow regardless, the area might be big so you dont feel it.

as being living in the attic, HOT AIR rises, so you might want to invest in some installation for the ceiling, because whent he sun hit the roof, it will create an oven effect, in your living area. the hot air is always present, you should have a ventilation fan blowing the hot air out, like thru a small window, the more hot air you blow out, the better.

not sure if this make sense. not sure how big the room is, as FANs are NOISY by nature.
