Question about Westwind Traditional Designers Choice Sandstone Ceiling Fan

Open Question

Need instructions for Ceiling Fan Remote Control

Hi, I need help in understanding my ceiling fan's remote control. It's a Designer's Choice with Auto, Random, and Delay Off settings. It also has an LED screen. I think I understand how the fan monitors the temp and turns on and off accordingly but I don't understand how the auto and random features of the light work. What I'm hoping to accomplish is somehow avoid having to push the little remote button whenever I enter our bedroom to turn on the light. It's a bit of a pain. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    I was wondering if you can assist me in re-programming my remote. I have the same remote as you are describing. I took it out of my mothers house and installed it in mine. However, the remote doesn't work the lights or fan any more. It need to be resynchronized.

SOURCE: Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch

Hello,

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

Regards,
Worldvet
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

SOURCE: how to convert ceiling fan into wireless ceiling fan

Suggest going to Lowe's (or other appliance dealers who sell ceiling fans) and get one of their wireless interfaces -- I have two in my house...  These can be found in the ceiling fan area, probably need to talk to someone as they have several different models...
You will need to rewire the fan slightly, but the diagram for the wireless interface is pretty straight forward if you know anything about wiring...
The interface has two parts -- the receiver which slips into the yoke holding up the ceiling fan, and the handheld controller (there are other units, but I am assuming this is what you wanted...)
hope this helps...  Pablo, Kansas City

There is a 4 position (dip) switch on both the fan housing and the remote. Make sure these switches are set exactly the same and the remote will control the light and fan separately. If not, the remote may be getting interference on the preset frequency - try CHANGING the dip switches to a different setting and the remote should work.

SOURCE: Hampton Bay Sussex ceiling fan motor turns on but fan won't turn

Sounds like you have a broken motor bearing cause the armature to not spin correctly even though the motor is spinning. If the Armature is not spinning then the motor will only spin. To be honest with you it would be cheaper to replace the fan then to try and repair it. The price you pay for the parts and for a technician is going to be expensive. If you are capable of doing this yourself you are going to need to take it off the ceiling and take the fins off and then get to the bearing and see if it looks like something you can fix. Then go to Lowes, Home Improvement or local appliance store and find the new bearing. Good luck

My ceiling fan and light does not respond to remote control any more. How do I get them to reconnect again?


Try removing power at the source, waiting a few minutes, and restoring power. Power outages cause the receiver to develop amnesia. In addition, if you try to restore correct operation by pulling chains or flipping wall switches, the receiver loses its tiny electronic mind. You may even find that the problem corrects itself at random over time.

How to reverse kichler ceiling fan, UC7206T


Stock Kichler ceiling fan c. 2006, works with replacement remote control 337001WH hand-held unit from Amazon 2013. Started running backwards when two remotes were activated at the same time by accident. Random button pushing on two remotes simultaneously got it to go back to forward. (Apparently original remote hand-held transmitter had forward/reverse setting, but the substitute 337001WH transmitter doesn't. When two transmitters run at the same time, the fwd/rev code may be decoded in the collisions at the receiver. Thank goodness!)

Where can I get a new motor for my Hunter Designer's Choice Ceiling Fan (model # 99048


Call Hunter at 1-901-745-9222. I think this number is still current, it might not be. Tell them your issue, most likely they will send you an entire new unit (or is your fan the OLD Designer's Choice from the 80's with a rubber flywheel?)

Need to program Hampton Bay Ceiling fan remote control CHO88T7030T, HELP!


Change the battery. This is the first step when troubleshooting a ceiling fan remote. The easiest fix to any remote control problem begins with battery replacement. A 9-volt battery is needed to operate all Hampton Bay ceiling fan remotes.

Check the light switch used for the ceiling fan. The light switch found on the wall must be in the "on" position. This allows the ceiling fan to be operated by remote control

Re-program your remote. If battery replacement fails to get your remote working again, try to reprogram the remote. Open the battery cover you will see 4 dip switches. These switches must be set to the same position as the receiver on the fan. Use the screw driver to move the dip switches either up or down.

Follow the previous step to change the frequency if the ceiling fan is randomly turning on or off. Other electronic devices such as garage door openers can interfere with the ceiling fans receiver, causing it to randomly turn on or off.
