Question about Westwind Traditional Designers Choice Sandstone Ceiling Fan
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.

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

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.

I have an Aloha Breeze L-Style 52" Ceiling Fan(Polished Brass), Model # 29079 Bought From Wal-Mart about 1 1/2 years ago and the fan speed switch busted and the capacitor melted. I have a new switch but can't find a new capacitor because I can't read the spec info. Looking for a place to obtain the correct capacitor for this fan so I can make necessary repairs!
