Question about Westwind Dryers

1 Answer

My ceiling fan's reverse switch disintegrated when I was installing my 4-lite kit. Can I bypass the reverse switch and still have the lite kit work and the forward motion of the fan?

I do not know the brand name of the fan. It is a 52" fan with a 4-lite kit. When 2 of the lites went out, I disconnected the lite kit, and when I did, the reverse switch fell apart into pieces. Can I bypass the reverse switch and reconnect the lite kit? The fan should still work in the forward motion. Thanks.

SOURCE: where do you connect the blue wire

Next time don't lose the instructions.....

Black is your answer...

If just simply hooking the blue and black together with the black from the switch/power supply does not work you need to replace the wire going to the fan with a 12/3 wire(white,black,red,ground) along with a switch, what you have now is a 12/2(white,black,ground)


Here is the following way it should be hooked up using 12/3 romex to the fan from wall switch.
White,Black, ground power supply
Make sure 12/3 is fed to the fan location.
From the power you Y off the black to the red with a piece of red wire to the switch.
Then from the switch is red wire.
Then at the fan red connects to blue, black connects to black, white to white, and ground to ground.

SOURCE: does the red wire coming out of the ceiling go to

The white wire in your ceiling box is USUALLY the neutral wire. Green or bare wires are ground wires. Any other colored wires are generally hot, switched or unswitched. If changing the position of a wall switch makes a white wire hot, it is NOT a neutral wire. You need a test light, generally an inexpensive neon test light available at any hardware store, and a book on basic wiring would help. To control the fan and light separately, assuming you have not installed a wireless control, you need two switches, one for the fan and one for the light. If you do not have these, you need a wireless control unless you have a spare wire in the wall switch box or you need to be satisfied with controlling the separate functions with the pull chains. Check the ceiling box wires. Put one lead on the ground wire or, if you have steel boxes, on the box. Remove the wire nuts on the other wires, being careful not to touch any wires or touch any of the wires to each other or the side of a metal box. Touch the other lead to the other wires, one by one. If the light comes on, the wire is hot. Try the wall switch(es) on and off and see what changes. To make the fan or light work it has to be hooked up to a neutral wire (white, never hot regardless of any switch positions) and a hot wire. The same is true for the light kit. If you do not have or want two wall switches, one for the light and one for the fan, you need to identify the wire that is hot when you turn on the wall switch and hook it up to the black (fan) wire AND the blue (light)wire. You then control both with the single wall switch in conjunction with the pull chains. If you have two switches in the same wall box, and they make two different wires hot in the ceiling box, hook one to the black fan wire and one to the blue light wire. If you're set up with only one switch, and you're lucky, you may have an extra wire in the same cable from the ceiling box to the wall box, with a wire nut on each end. In that case, install a second switch for the light (or a combination switch designed to control both a fan and light). Hook the hot wire from the wall box to both switches (or the hot terminal on the combination switch) and the other two wires to the other two terminals that go to the ceiling box to feed the light and fan. Never use a light dimmer switch to control a fan or a fan speed switch to control a light. If two or more switches in different areas controlled the original fixture in the ceiling box, things can be complicated. If the same wall switch makes two different wires hot depending on it's position, for example, it's a three or four way switch. The above description also assumes the wall box is fed from the ceiling box, but the opposite may be true. There may also be wires in either box that are feeding other circuits in the house. Electricity can kill or burn down your house. If unsure of what you are doing, hire a licensed electrician. Also be aware that if you touch the leads of the test light to two wires that are both hot, the light may not come on. Always test with one lead on a ground or a wire that you are sure is a neutral wire. I recommend tuning off the power to all the circuits in the boxes that you are working on, after you have determined what the wires are, by shutting off the circuit breaker(s) or removing the fuse(s). There may be more than one circuit in a box.

Fan just quit working one day. Nothing happens when I turn the light switches on and off.


Is it powered thru a light switch? Sometimes those do just quit. You can remove the old switch & replace it. Go to Lowe's/Home Depot, the switch itself is fairly inexpensive (probably less than $5). Remember to turn off the breaker to that room/switch before you do anything. The installation itself is simple - just wire + to + and ground it. Did you notice any kind of noise/smell before it stopped working? If the motor is burnt out - just replace the whole fan (unless you feel like tinkering with breaking it down & finding a replacement motor). Sometimes the lite switch on the fan itself will go out - parts for that can be found at about any larger hardware store, but sometimes that's not an easy repair (depends on what type of lite kit is on the fan). However, if that were the problem -it would not cause the blades not to turn, it would only keep the lights from coming on. Try replacing the light switch that turns the fan on/off first (the one on the wall, not on the fan itself) - hopefully that'll solve it for you. Good Luck.

twist the 4 black wires from the lights together and use a wirenut to either connect them to one side of the switch or to a pigtail that will go into one side of the switch. The other side of the switch will be wired to the hot wire coming from the fan meant for the light kit. All of the whit wires get twisted together and connected to the neutral light wire coming from the fan. If you've already connected it that way and it doesn't work, the switch may be defective.

My Redington IV ceiling fan with remote controller is stuck at low speed. I can turn on/off light and on/off the fan but can't change speed. It just happened recently after about three years of working...


It's possible the fan is in reverse and some fans will not on function faster or lower speeds, check for a switch on the side of the fan just above the blades.

Reversing direction on remote controlled fan


There is no switch. Put the fan on high then hit the reverse button. Your fan should stop, reverse and you'll bet all set.

Ceiling fan and light wiring, 2 switches, 1 romexHunt


If you have only one black and one white in the ceiling to connect the fan / light to , then you have only one switch for this ceiling box. The fan / light will connect the white wires together and then the two colored wires on the fan to the black ceiling wire. In order to use separate switches for the fan and the lighht a 4 wire cable must go from the switches to the light so you have a red and black wire to switch the two separately .
