Fan controls I want to control the fan from a wall control switch. Is there a combon control switch at Lowes (or other) that would control the 3-Speed fan and the light ? Is there any particular wiring required from the fan to the switch ?

Yes,you need to have two hot wires to install a dual control. If you only have one and can't run another line you can use a wall remote,which will do both your fan/light using one hot wire. FYI ,I have one of these fans (display fan)I'm saleing for $250.00. 5BR52RBD

If you bought the switch from Lowes, most likely it's the wrong switch. Even if it looks the same on the outside, it could be different on the inside. As for the other wire, push it into the empty slot of the switch & see what happens. There has to be 4 wires in the switch. Black usually goes to L

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

It does not matter whether you turn on the switch or the switch is motion
activated, the light does not know who turns it on.

The switch must be designed for florescent.

What do you mean by proper base, you have a single gang wall box,
that's a box inside the wall, with the electric and a switch,
The gang could be single or hold 5 switches, which ever is installed.

Most all switches fill fit into any gang box.

Can i put a dimmer switch on a floor fan? i just bought an industrial-type floor fan, but i don't need that much air movement all the time, how could i wire up a dimmer or potentiometer so that i could...


A potentiometer would overheat because when you tell it to turn the power down, it basically just runs the extra power through a heating element, which will probably catch it on fire for something that large. A dimmer switch changes the voltage that goes in, and is generally meant for incandescent lights. If you wired a regular old dimmer switch up, the motor would probably sound weird, and the dimmer switch or motor would break, possibly starting a fire. It's illegal to use a regular light dimmer switch on anything but an incandescent light socket. However, you can easily find a controller that will work. Look for a fan speed controller or motor speed controller. Make sure it's rated for the correct voltage and has an amp rating not exceeded by the fan's rating. These look like a dimmer switch but are designed to deliver the power the motor needs. See link http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=70801-539-SFSQ-FH-IV&lpage=none

I tried to install a fan light control switch for


The reason the fan and light are running together is because the are both running on one power wire. The three wires you have in the wall are probably white black and bare copper. You need to run a four wire cable which has a white red black and bare copper in order for you to separate the light and fan and for the circuit to run properly. A DIY electrical book from lowes or the home depot would help you alot with your situation.

Control fan/light separately, with only two wires


They are available at Home Depot and Lowes. Hunter makes a wall mounter dimmer that will control the lights and fan speed separately. There is a receiving unit that mounts above the fan to the house wires on one side and the others connect to the fan.

The two hots you mentioned should be a black one and a blue one. The blue is for the lights; the black the fan. Ground everything you can to boxes, etc, if the house is only a two wire system without a ground.

I believe that remote wall switch and receiver runs close to $40.

Can a remote control be installed on the Huntington III?


Yes you can operate them with two styles of remotes: either the remote wall switch, or a hand held remote. Both require the receiver to be mounted above the top of the fan in the base it is wired to. The receiver has wires on both sides; the one side wires directly to the house wires, and the other goes to the fan and light. They are both sold at Home Depot and Lowes. The ones at Home Depot also include the set made by the fan manufacturer.
