Hunter Fan # 20723 The Westminster - lights delayed when turn on

I recently installed the above fan. There is around 2 second delay when you turn the light switch on. I went and purchased another exact fan and it's doing the same thing? Any possible solutions?

    I'm experiencing the same problem: 2 second delay before incandescent light comes on. Doesn't occur with my other three fans. Very strange!

    I have the same problem, but with a different model of Hunter ceiling fan. I'm pretty sure I wired it correctly. Maybe its something with their new fans.

    I have the same issue, bought 3 of the same model Hunter fan and all 3 are doing the delay. I did notice that if you use the pull chain to turn the lights on and off there is no more delay. The delay only occurs when using the light switch.

Here is the answer I received from Hunter Technical Support.

"The light fixtures are manufactured with a limiter that prevents a higher than recommended wattage bulb from working. The limiter causes the slight delay even when the correct bulbs are is in use."

Pretty annoying if you ask me.

    Same issue, same correction Installed 4 ea 60w bulbs. Instructions says unit limited to 190w total. Change to 4ea 40w (160w total) and problem went away. However of the 2 fans installed at the same time, 1 eventually "failed" and the lights would just continue to flash on and off. Should have read those dang instructions....

Remove the limiter from the circuit... Light works fine without it. Just remember to use 40 W 120V Candelabra bulbs.
Disconnect "Light Out" (red wire) from the 4 black light socket wires, Disconnect the black "Live In" wire from the limiter. Connect the black wire from switch (that went to "Live In") and connect it to the 4 black wires going to the light sockets. Cut the "Common in" wire close to the limiter, strip it, remove the "Common Out" wire (white) from the 4 white (neutrel) light socket wires. Attach the stripped "Common In" white wire to the 4 white light socket wires. Limiter should now be completely removed from circuit, and black wire coming from pull chain light switch should be hooked directly to 4 black light socket wires. The 4 white light socket wires should have a white wire labeled "Common In" hooked to them. Hope this helps.

    be careful, I cut my wire at the wrong end, near the connector and goofed up the whole thing... Oh well, new ceiling fan time... I still blame Hunter and believe me my new one WON'T BE A HUNTER! Good Luck to everyone else!

If you're using a fluorescent light, this is normal.

If your Fan is less than a year old it's probably still under warranty. Mine was! I called Hunter and they sent out a new light ***'y. Fixed the problem and believe me nobody touches that fan but me! Good luck everyone!

Asko Dryer t760 program menu won't change or is frozen The program menu is stuck on one setting, and the P1, P2, P3, P4 buttons don't change the program. When I try to reset the program (by pressing...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

By stating "the dryer does work" indicates it is likely an issue with programming.

What are the chances you have the menu lock-out option turned "on"...also referred to as "child lock".

You may quickly rule this out or confirm it is the problem indeed, by trying this.

CHILD-SAFE START

1. Turn the machine off then on.
2. Press ENTER five times, then press P3 five
times. (This must be done within 15 seconds.)
3. “Delayed start” displays with “0” flashing in the
lower right corner. Press the Right Arrow button
to toggle the display to “3.”


**NOTE: Child-Safe Menu Button**
Please note that when you set the child-safe Start
button, the Menu button is automatically
programmed to delay for three seconds before it
becomes active. This prevents a child from
accidentally changing the program settings.
When you want to change a program, press the Menu
button for three seconds to activate the menus. The
Menu button will work normally (without the
three-second delay) until you have completed your
changes. If it is not pressed for two minutes, it will
automatically revert back to the child-safe mode.

Let me know if this indeed solves the problem but either way please keep me posted.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Clothes do not get dry when using the sensor dry setting on GE dryer.


Ok, Jeff, I see you have a front loader, electric. On this model we have inlet thermistors, outlet thermistors, and the sensor bars are non serviceable, which means they are part of the blower housing. Not a big deal. Let's put it into a test mode and test the voltage drop of the sensors. They are on the inside of the drum just below the vent gate. 2 bars. Unplug the dryer for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and within 10 seconds press in this order: signal button, delay start, signal button again and delay start again. The consol should show t01. This is test 1. You want to turn the main dial clockwise until the test shows t09, this will be the sensor test. With the drum dry it should show around 5 volts DC. Now take a wet rag and place it over the bars, the display should show a voltage drop to around .5 or 1volt DC. If it does this the sensor is working properly. See if you can run this test successfully and post back. Catriver.
