Open Question

Can the remote control transformer be removed from a high end ceiling fan?

Gutted and remodeled kitchen, all new wiring. Three-way switches, all with dimmers, throughout. Bought the Minka Napoli Motor: with: Control: Full Function Wall Mount Control System (Included). Fan is installed, and useless, because electrician (and Minka) say you cannot wire the fan to a dimmer, it will "fry" the motor. We don't want remote control function - want to turn fan (and light) off and on independently, at the wall. Fan was expensive, can't be returned because it's been installed. Minka was ABSOLUTELY no help. Does this make sense and can anyone tell us if the remote control transformer can be removed so we can use this beautiful, expensive fan? We really splurge on it- thanks!

SOURCE: hampton bay fan, wall mount remote control

Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.

SOURCE: How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

SOURCE: Noisey Minka Aire Napoli ceiling fans

Minka fan are life time warrantied, have you tried contacting customer service... Minka fans motors have a very simply design... uninstall the fan... try balancing the fan on a table or some where that allows you to remove the shell that covers the main body of the fan... Carefully (someone that is very familiar with the electrical components.) soft wire the fan allowing you to see the motor as the blades turn... You will then see what is making the scraping noise... I may have some extra fan parts that you can easily replace... If you like to write me at payitforwardx2 @ gmail . com I am willing to try to further assist you...

Help. I need help properly connecting wires on a new ceiling fan.


Usually, the fans with remotes will dim the lights by holding the light button for a few seconds. So, the red wire would stop this feature if wired directly to the fixture. That would eliminate the wire coming out of the receiver for the lights. If you want the light to dim, then tape off the red wire, so the remote will dim them. The wall switch won't work anymore. If you want to connect the red wire , tape off the wire from the receiver that connects to the light sockets and connect the red wire to the wire for the light sockets. This will operate the fan but the remote will not dim the lights. If you have a motor speed controller in the wall from the old fan, remove it and replace it with a switch or eliminate the switch altogether so the remote will control the fan speed.

Replacing a switch on a ceiling fan


Wall mount. Cut the power to the switch by tripping the breaker at the "fuse box". You will need help to see what breaker controls that lighting circuit.
Get new switch,remove old switch from wall mount and note the color coding of the wires.
There will be screws that attach the power wires to the switch and
wires that go to the fan.Power wires are one black and one white. The other wire is a green ground wire.
Remove the wires,one at a time and connect to the switch,IF there is enough wire length to do so.You will need pliers to yank the wires out.
The stripped,bare wire at the end should go on the new fan switch so when you tighten the wire end,the wire end tightens onto the terminal clockwise.

If the stripped end is broken off,strip another 3/4" of wire and wrap the wire around the terminal,clockwise.

You MAY test the switch B-4 you put it back into the wall.Be careful of the "hot" black wire.

Click the circuit breaker back off and install into the wall box.

I have a hampton bay ceiling fan which will only run on the fast speed. I have changed switches but still only the fast speed. I have touched each wire to the load wire to see if it was the swith but no...


Hello Brother,
Installation:
Hang your ceiling fan on the Quick Connect fan bracket and wire the ceiling fan according to the manufacturer's instructions. The three wires coming from your ceiling should match the three wires coming from your ceiling fan: black (positive or hot), white (neutral or negative) and green (ground wire).


Use the high, medium and low keys on the remote to adjust the Hampton Bay fan speed, then use the light key to dim the light and the off key to turn off the fan.


For REMOTE CONTROL FANS you cannot use with any variable speed or slide wall switches. The remote control function must be used with on & off switch outlets only.

Nothing works.


Remote receiver got fried by the voltage spike. If you have pull chain controls as well, you can remove the receiver and possibly be able to save the fan, but the capacitors, may have also been fried. If the capacitors are fried, then most likely the motor experienced some seriously high voltage too, which would mean I would replace the fan. I assume you have had the house's wiring inspected? If lightning struck the house and killed the fan, then it likely ALSO damaged other electrical components. If the lightning struck your power transformer and not your home directly, you may can get the power company to pay for this ceiling fan as the transformer is supposed to have a lightning arrester on it.

Need a basic diagram to wire a ceiling fan.


Depending on how your place is wired will dictate the solution here.

The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

Speed control switch


I saved this text I found when I was researching this a while ago.
Let us know how you do.

Wiring a three speed fan switch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My daughter called me the other day and said Dad the ceiling fan in the kitchen is not working only the light works. I went over and removed the three screws that hold the light and pull chain for the fan down and found that the fan control switch had snapped open and all 4 wires had popped out. The snap clips on each side of the switch had broken off. I went down to Home Depot in the ceiling department and found the switch I was looking for. It said for a four wire ceiling fan. OK, know lets put it back together. First of all if you look at the new switch you should see four holds were the wires will be pushed into. The black wire in the fan is the hot or load wire, this wire is hot whenever the wall switch to the fan is turned on. Put this wire in the hole that is marked “L” this stands for load. Now with this switch in the off position the fan will not work until you pull the chain. The other three holes are marked #1, #2 and #3. On most fans #1 is usually high speed. # 2 medium and #3 low speed. What you now have to determine is what wires are high medium and low. The easiest way to do this is before you put any of the wires back into the new switch is to FIRST MAKE SURE NO POWER IS GOING TO THE FAN. Then simply take one of the colored wires at a time and twist it together with the black hot wire.
Turn the power back on to the fan and knot the fans speed. Do this with all three wires one at a time until you can determine which wire is high speed. Note the color of the wire and mark it down on paper.(Example; blue wire high speed.) Do this with the other two wires to determine there speed. Once you have the speed of each wire you can reassemble the new switch.
Black wire (Load) goes in hole marked L. High speed wire goes in hole marked # 1. Medium speed goes in hole marked #2 and low speed goes in hole # 3. MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE FAN IS TURNED OFF WHILE YOU ASSEMBLE THE NEW SWITCH.
For those of you that have all these wired hooked up right and still the fan won't work I would then look for an open neutral wire. It should be a white wire. Check to see if all the wires are securly attached.
Good luck. One more word of advice. If you're not sure on what you are doing when it comes to electrical wiring then please do not attempt to do this or any other electrial work yourself. Call a licensed electrian. Any mistakes on your part could void your home owners insurance in case of a fire.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
