Question about Bionaire BSF1731RC Stand (Pedestal) Fan

Remote Control Doesn't Work

The six button Holmes remote control no longer controls the Bionaire remote control stand fan model BSF1731RC. Replaces the battries and still doesn't work. Verified that the remote control is functional by measuring the remote control battery voltage while idle and while a button is depressed. There is a slight voltage drop when the button is depressed indicating that there is power going into and theu the remote control circuits. How to verify that the IR LED is working?

Re: Remote Control Doesn't Work

You could pick up an IR tester. Your local electronics hobby store should have them. Also, you sound as if you have some electronics ability, you could do a search on the net and find a electronics hobby site and build yourself a tester. This is what I did. Now, in my 27 years of electronics I have never seen a bad IR section of a remote. the most common problem is broken solder connections. remotes get dropped, tossed, stepped on, etc... Open the unit up and look for bad solder connections. They do not have to have a physical break to be bad! If they are grey instead of shiny or if you see a ring around the lead then the connection is bad. Reflow all connections and clean all contacts. I would think that will get it back to a working conditon.

The lights come on but the fan blade doesnt turn

Check the thermal fuse located inside the motor fan winding wire. Check the crystal oscillator and micro-controller located in the printed control board of the fan. When it is replace with similar type, the fan will function again and ready to be use.
Thanks for asking.
