Yes they can be refinished but would need sanded to hold the new finish.

I have a Hampton ceiling fan, its got a four wire fan switch, home depot gave me a Westinghouse 77286 with L, 1, 2, 3 wire points the fan has a black, purple,brown and gray wire. What goes were?

Just because the switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside. You should have written the info down before removing the old switch. Anyway, try this;
Black - L Brown - 1 Purple - 2 gray - 3
If this doesn't work you probably have the wrong switch.

My brass bathroom basin is old and discolored, but the cabinet is in great shape . can i paint the interior of the basin

Yes, but you may not like it. Assuming this bowl is solid brass, you have 3 options. 1. To make it appear fabulous you can shine up the whole thing with steel wool to remove the entire original finish. Work through steel wool grades from medium to very fine and then using brass polish. This will make it look great, but you will have to repeat this every month or so because it will repeatedly tarnish. 2. After cleaning it up the first time you can use a spray lacquer to seal it. (Mask off the surrounding stuff!) This will not be nearly as durable as the original clear finish, but it will remain nice much longer than using no finish, and it will make it harder to polish up again next time. 3. You can remove the bowl and have it professionally refinished. This is expensive but will give you durability somewhere between option 2 and the original finish. My suggestion is to first confirm that it is solid brass. Try a magnet first, it it sticks you have brass plated steel which will show through if you try to polish it up. Even if the magnet does not stick, try making a deep scratch on the underside of the bowl and looking for telltale silver color of aluminum or zinc. If it's solid brass, go with option 1. If it requires re-shining more often than you would like, then go to option 2. If it is not solid brass, then you can paint it, but it won't look good or last very long.
Good luck.

Ceiling fans turn themselves on.

Hello :

I don't want to scare you . But when your fans turn themselves on , that means there's someone else at home . Why I'm saying that ? It seems that you have a problem in home electrical wiring connections . You need to make test . You can stay in the room where are the fans and send someone else the turn on switches at home one after another until you find which switch is turning the fans on . You need an Electrician to correct this error at home and to wibe ghosts out .

good luck .

rate please .
