Question about Minka Aire Ceiling Fan

Open Question

I have a minka aire wall control- how do you reverse blades?

I need to reverse the blades so that I can push do the warm air. There is no reverse button on the wall control and I do not have a remote. We are new owners to the house and have no other info, no manuals and no remotes. The wall control only has on/off and low, med. and high buttons for the fan speed. Thanks

SOURCE: 2 remotes

Yes, If the receiver is the same model number one remote will work for both... (im assuming when you state remote you are referring to a hand held remote? or are you referring to a wall mount remote? Each ceiling fan comes with it's own electrical unit... I currently have some Minka concept fans if your interested in purchasing at a very good price or if I can help you out in any other way please feel free to contact me at payitforwardx2 @ GMAIL . COM I will be happy to help you in any way I can.

SOURCE: I recently bought a house

The reversing in a single phase AC motor is done by switching the flow of current thru the starting coil. For that to happen both ends of the coil must be accessible on the outside of the motor.
Unfortunately the motor in this fan doesn't have that so there is no way to install a reverse switch on it without extensive modifications on the motor: it will have to be opened, the starting coil identified, the captive end unsoldered from the main connector to which it is attached and extracted outside. From there the ends will have to be soldered on a special relay and wiring that would have to be inserted besides the usual wiring of the fan. From there a special command wire will have to be sent to the remote receiver board that you would have to insert it there also. To put it simply: the labor (which must be done by a pro) would cost more than a new fan.
So if you need a fan with reverse then just buy one: it will be way easier, faster and cheaper than to retrofit this one.

Hardwired ceiling fan turned off by itself and stopped responding to remote control, but the light turns on/off.

I've had problems with Minka Aire also. You might need a new receiver. Call Minka @ 1-800-307-3267 and talk to someone in tech dept.. Should be a one year warranty on the receiver.

Minka Aire model f603 reverse switch?

Not sure what model of fan or manufacture you have. Says Hunter 52" & Minka aire F603. If it's the Minka , Then push the button on the lower part of the remote (6 o'clock). If that doesn't work then you might need a new receiver.

Minka Aire Fan will not reverse.

My fan is a concept II and it had the same behavior. I called Minka Aire support about this - they said it was either the reverse module or the receiver. They sent me both no charge! I replaced them and now my fan reverses. i am not an electrician, but the replacement was fairly easy. Just made sure to disconnect 1 wire at a time, connect it to the new wire, etc until I was done. Minka Aire support said they would walk me through it on the phone but I didn't need them to.
