Question about WeatherWorks DB888 Floor / Box Fan

1 Answer

Wires for fan speed came undone.

The part underneath the fan speed control came apart and the wires are just hanging. The part has numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 on the side. Which colors corresponds with each number? How and where is the part, with the wires, attached to the fan? Haven't noticed anything laying around. I've been unsuccessful in finding any documentation or manuals for this fan from this website. No matter what words I use in the " Search inside WeatherWorks DB888 Floor / Box Fan Knowledgebase " I get the same webpage showing the same answers. I used "fix" and it gave me the question and solution found on the previous webpage. I used " Popular searches: fix, problem, faq, bug, tech support" and typed in "bug" and 0 answers found. Thanks in advance. I would really appreciate any help. Yours truly, Robert B. Orris

Why on my manual temperature control does the blower only work on max, or 4


Under dash on passenger side is Blower Motor Resistor "wire harness plug" which is shorting. it's loose or was previously arcing and burnt up a little from heat. You can reshape the female pins to make the needle pins insert more tight. Or you should replace the Blower Motor Resistor harness if it's too far gone. ( it clips apart, usually a white plug just underneath glove box location. Sometimes is damaged by passengers feet. Your speed 1 thru 3 is resisted. Fan speed # 4 is max voltage and does not use the Resistor. I assume the resistor is shot ( located inside the clip coming from blower motor) or else there is a short on 1 of the wires female to male pins.

So when the one I went to pull out fell apart before making anything I pulled the other one apart. Okay, on the white plastic there are numbers l(1), ll(2), lll(3). Orange wire l(1), nothing in ll(2), blue wire lll(3). Now on the black plastic, the outlet wires go here: black wire L, white outlet is 180degrees (by orange wire) NEUTRAL SPLICER. Now, white wire from motor goes into the other side of the NEUTRAL SPLICER next to the black wire on the black plastic. This is just above the ll(2) on the white plastic. REMEMBER - NOTHING GOES INTO THE ll(2) ON THE WHITE PLASTIC.

Radiator fan not working


Your Fan Control Module or FMC is the long black relay located underneath your coolant bulb, It is mounted onto a bracket on the drivers side shock tower, to test your fans you can take off the temp sensor located on the drivers side tank on your radiator, jump the terminals and the fan should come on in low speed, turn your ignition to the on position and jump them and it should turn onto high speed.
The best solution is to wire the fan to a 12v switched power source on high speed.

MY HUNTER ORIGINAL RUNS THRU AN ORDINARY WALL SWITCH. IT HAS HI AND LO SPEEDS ON THE HOUSING, BUT EVEN LO SPEED IS A BIT TOO FAST AT TIMES... HOW CAN I CONTROL THE SPEED THRU FULL RANGE... A RHEOSTAT...


Jim,

You have a special fan there. Hunter Originals are my specialty.

There are two ways to accomplish a slower speed with this fan.

1. A wall variable speed control, solid state, rated for 3 or more amps, regular fan controls will not work as your fan draws 2.5amps on high, not even new ones that are labeled for the Original.

2. Retrofit the fan to make it a three speed. If you're good with wiring, it's really simple. What you need is, a standard 3 speed pull chain switch, not a double pole one like cheaper/new fans have that use capacitor speed control, we are using cap. speed control, but not the same way they do. So you want an "SP3T" switch. You also need an 9 10 or 11 or 12 MFD capacitor (depending on how fast you want your low to be 8 is 20rpm, 11 is 75 approximately). You will remove the switch cap to your fan, and you will find your switch has a black, blue and red wire connected to it. Remove all wires, attach the black to L on your new switch, attach blue to 1, then you need 2 extra pieces of wire. Stick one wire in 2 and the second wire in 3. Now, get your capacitor and hook one side of it to the red wire and position 2, then hook the other side to the wire you put in position three.

Remember to get the Single pole switch for non capacitor speed control fans, if you get the double pole, both winding sets in your fan will be activated, which will draw double current and burn your motor out.

Also, are you aware that your fan uses oil (like an engine) ? and is not permanently lubricated?

Wiring code for ceiling fan


These fans do not have a standard color code for the fan switch. What you can do is turn off the power, keep the white neutral connected. Then using the black power wire take one of the switch wires and connect to that black, turn the power on and observe the speed .. low mark it 1, medium mark it 2, high mark it 3. Repeat untill you have identified all the speed wires. Then connect these wires to the 1,2,3, terminations of your new switch

Hunter speed control problem


I have the exact same problem. Called Hunter's tech support and they confirmed the capacitor must be bad. This is the black box that has 4 wires going to the switch. They are sending me a new one for under $12. I haven't received it yet, but the wires from it going to the switch can be removed from the switch by shoving a paper clip along side the wire, this'll release the spring clip holding the wire in. Not sure, but I may have to cut and wire nut any wires that go elsewhere.

I recommend you call them too and as long as you have the 5 digit model number (usually on top of fan) they should be able to get you what you need.

P.S. it is highly unlikely that it is in the switch. I tried replacing it with one from Home Depot and I actually got Low-Off-High, which is worse. The Hunter tech support guy said you can't use after market switches with their fans.

Assuming "Window Unit" with rotary switch.
L1 (smooth part of line cord) to thermostat 1, thermostat 2 to overload (black disk) from overload to Common( C) terminal on compressor.
From Run (R) terminal on Compressor to Common (C) terminal on dual capacitor. From Start (S) terminal on Compressor to "Herm" terminal on capacitor. From fan motor to # 4 on switch = Medium Speed, to # 6 on switch = High Speed, from fan motor to # 7 on switch - Low Speed. Brown wire from fan motor to (F) on dual capacitor, white wire from fan to (C) on capacitor and L2 (ribbedwire) (N) to (C) on capacitor

Wiring the replacement 3 speed switch (fan motor)


I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:

L White
1 Yellow
2 Blue
3 Black

The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.

Ceiling fan remotes


If you know where the remote receiver is located on the fan (probably in the canopy or the compartment where a light kit would attach), you may want to see if you can find the wire antenna that is hanging off of it. If possible, run that wire outside the canopy so it is exposed, this might give you a better response.

Hello,

The Problem is the wiring. Take the 2 screws retaining the metal plaque off underneath the filters. You will see the wires leaving the motor going into a "molex" plastic connector which connects two another set of wires going to the control board. Check to see if the wiring colors match from side to side of plastic connector. Ive only seen it happen once but it was exactly that. I do service calls for broan & Nutone
