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.

I need a remote control modual for a dawn sun model #fd-30-ho2r


Hello, Harry -

I believe a Dawn Sun is a model name for a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan. You probably do not realize it, but your question landed in the Fixya.com category for Television & Video.

I found some Harbor Breeze universal remote controls on the Lowes website:
https://www.lowes.com/pl/Ceiling-fan-remote-controls-Ceiling-fan-parts-accessories-Ceiling-fans-accessories-Lighting-ceiling-fans/4294395598?refinement=4294965856

Be sure to read the specifcations, reviews, and Community Q&As for each universal remote control before ordering one. You will want to make sure the remote control you choose works with the Dawn Sun fd-30-ho2r model ceiling fan.

Best wishes.

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.

How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.


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.
