Question about Hunter Dryers
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!

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 #.

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.

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...
