Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
I bought a house with Hampton Bay ceiling fan installed in a vaulted ceiling. The fan runs in all three speeds forward (air moving down). I do not have a remote; judging from the problems with the remotes, I am glad for that. There are two wall switches – one controls the light and the other the fan – those work properly. There are pull chains for the light and the speed switch for the fans – those work properly. There is a sliding switch on the side of the fan – when the switch is moved to the left, the fan runs forward. When the switch is moved to the right, the fan stops running. Could this be a problem with this reversing switch on the fan or the capacitor on the motor?
It sounds like the direction switch has a broken connection on the "reverse" side. Should be an easy fix (but you might need a soldering iron).
