Question about Dryers

Open Question

I have a 60 inch Miramar II Ceiling Fan model #AL60-O88. We had a dimmer switch installed by an electrician. Due to low brightness of the lights, we removed the swtich and replaced with a three way (on/off). The lights were brighter. We have tried several brands of energy saving, incandescant light bulbs (most recent 9W, 120 VAC, 60 HZ, 140 mA). This should be well within the limiters capacity, but It won't work - hums and shuts off after 30 secs. Standard 40 watt bulbs just are not bright enough. Should we replace the limiter?

SOURCE: 40 watt just not bright enough?

60 watts could be fine and you may never have a problem, but it says 40 watts for a reason. So you don't burn your house down. See "To reduce the risk of fire....". The better option here would be to buy 23watt compact fluorescent light bulbs. They give off less heat than a 40 watt incandescent and the same light output of a 100watt incandescent. I'm guessing that you don't currently have the light on a dimmer, but if you wanted to, make sure you get cfl's that are made to be used on a dimmer.

SOURCE: question about light bulb problem in ceiling fan

Check wiring @ ceiling. Should b a black, white, green & red wire coming frm fan. Green is ground. Black & Red is power. White is neutral. Black provides power to fan, red provides lat power 4 lights. Remove light assembly, blue wire provides power. B sure 2 turn off power 2 fan b 4 working on it w/switch & breaker. Maybe lose wire connection or pinched wire grounding out. Fans require vibration proof bulbs regular bulb elements will break after short time use. Fan bulbs have larger filiments inside bulb.

You have to unscrew the small openings on top of the housing where the motor is to access the small nightlight bulbs.

SOURCE: Ceiling fan will not spin fast

in england the usual house current is 220 volts and here the current is 120volts. this explains the problem. unless there is a switch to change your fan to a 110 current built in it might make sense to buy a new fan and move on. rewiring it would be expensive and unless it has alot of sentimental value probably not worth it.

If you have a remote then you can't use the dimmer switch on the wall. Put in an on/off switch.

Turn off the breaker that controls power to the fan. Remove the batteries from the remote and press the buttons in case one is stuck. Reinstall batteries or new ones. Turn on the fan breaker and try using the remote again

Do you have a dimmer switch in line? If not you need one and if you do check your wiring at the switch.

I have a dimmer switch installed and it wont work with the celing fan


Your question has two switches and 1 dimmer.
The fan switch works.
The light switch works.
The dimmer does not. What is the dimmer connected to?
Dimmers typically will not control fan speed unless they are rated to do that.
Do you have a 3-way switching where two switches control same light, and you installed the dimmer in place of 3-way switch?

Lights aren't working normally


Most likely, there is a dimmer selection switch on the remote controller to dim the lights. The wall switch has no effect on the brightness.

Light flickers when dimmer switch isn't ''just right''


Compact fluorescent bulbs do not work on dimmers.  You have to use standard incandescent bulbs or not dim the lights.

Not sure if this is the exact ceiling fan/ light kit we have... but looks similar.


Turned out that it was the dimmer switch that had shorted out.

My hubby figured it out, and replaced it.
