Question about Minka Aire Ceiling Fan
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.

the electronic board of your fan must be check.there are triac transistors that switch the motor to it variable speed check the triac and replace it if you find it faulty.there 3 triac found on it these rae the switches of 3 speeds you can compare the resistance reading of all of the 3 triacs to determine which triac is faulty...good luck.

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.
