Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
We have a Hunter fan with a remote control that was installed in late 1999. Just recently it "lost" medium speed. It now has high (i.e. wind tunnel, was always this way) and low (i.e. barely moving blades; low used to be a nice low speed). Pressing the remote once gets high speed, pressing it again used to put it on medium speed, and a third press resulted in a low speed. Now pressing it once gets high, pressing it again is VERY slow and a third time results in stopped blades.
We've tried turing the main wall switch off to cut power to the whole fan, and various combinations of pressing and holding the remote with no success.
Any way to get our medium speed back without replacing the fan?
It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.
The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).
Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.
