Question about Honeywell HFS641P Stand (Pedestal) Fan

1 Answer

Medium setting no longer functions

I use this fan alot and recently the fan has stopped working on the medium setting. If I have it on medium and enable the breeze mode it works ok but it wont function on the medium setting directly. All other speeds work just fine and I have tried to operate it from both the remote and on the fan base.

Check the connections on the switch or test the switch with a multimeter.

Low and medium fan speed no longer works on our Hampton Bay fan when you pull the chain. The high speed works. Can this be fixed with a repair part?


the speed is controlled by a capacitor bank ... high speed uses no capacitors, low speed uses a small capacitor in series with the motor and medium speed uses a larger capacitor ... the pull chain switch selects which capacitor is used ... so if the capacitors go bad or if the switch fails to select them then you will not have low and medium speed ... so you could have a bad speed capacitor block or a bad switch or wiring that has come loose inside the fan (that connects the capacitors) .. all are replaceable .. i would first remove the covers from the fan and check all wire connections .. check the switch to see if it operates smoothly .. then suspect the capacitor block .. if you were an electrician then you could bypass the switch to test its function but if you are not then make sure power is off while working on the fan .. you should be able to get a new capacitor block from the manufacturer .. most are similar if they will phisically fit in the fan housing and have the same connectors ..

Our hunter fan won't work on high speed any longer, low and medium speed work fine, when clicked on high - it only goes at medium


Sounds like the variable speed switch may be worn out.
You should be able to purchase replacement switch at the local home depot- type store in the electrical supplies.
Trying to get an exact match to replace may be a bit difficult, but a similar 3 speed switch should work just fine.

When the temperature control on my refrigerator is set to medium or higher the indicator starts flashing and the fridge stops working. What could be the problem?


the temp controller ie either out of range or the fam motor is arching out when you switch to a higher mode that causes the fan motor to run longer too!! check the fan motor or change it that should fix your probelm

HB ceiling fan is getting slower and slower bi the day


Solid-state controls change the level of power in the fan motor to control the speed of the fan. For instance, when you switch from medium to high on a solid-state fan, the speed control mechanism increases the power of the motor. Solid-state controls are generally equipped in fans with controls that have predetermined settings, such as low, medium and high.
The solid state device in or around the fan motor could be defective and in need of replacement.

Try setting the fan to medium, when you want less air blowing pull out on the ac button. Don't change fan setting.If your blower motor is starting to fail this will cause the motor to draw too much power blowing your fan fuse. If you want to get more life out of the motor do not set the fan switch above medium and it could last a lot longer. If you have the Extra money around $150.00 for the blower motor and at least that much again for the labor unless you DIY then you may choose to replace it I did this on My 91 Dodge B350 Xplorer Van Camper last august and it is still working.

Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed


It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

Only works at high speed


the barector resistance would have worn out or would have broken in the rheostat so change that resistance then you would see ur fan working in low medium and high speeds

Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan At Slow Speed


I recently replaced my hampton bay fan for the same reason (slow at all speeds) and discovered scorched and melted capacitors and wiring inside the fan. My suggestion is to stop using fan and replace immediately.
