Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Lights flickering There is no wattage limiter in the fan, just two capacitors. I've replaced the part that contains the capacitors, etc. I've replaced the light fixture. I've checked the power to the plug in the bottom of the fan and I have a good 120 volts. Help.

The capacitors have nothing to do with the light kit. Are you putting in the correct wattage?

SOURCE: ceiling fan with light fixture remote won't turn it off - help!

Think we've figured out that a neighbor has the same remote code as we do and we will have to change our code. (This fan is out on our screened porch and the homes are close together here.)

unplug the fan then remove the batteries from the remote then plug the fan back in and, reinstall the batteries; this resets the fan control

I think you have already figured out what the problem most likely is; 60 watt bulbs. Down-size the wattage or install 'energy saver' bulbs if they will fit the application. Instead of counting on these units for extra lighting, perhaps think about Track lighting to fill in those ares that need more but subtle light.
Good luck. :)

SOURCE: Lights flicker on ceiling fan

It is not a ceiling fan or wiring problem. It is your bulbs. Normal CFL bulbs do not work in dimmers or with remotes. Remotes work on RF signals and cause interference with the bulbs. You may also notice a buzzing sound and the lights may not go out when you turn off the switch. It is a fire hazard, can invalidate your warranty on the bulbs and will shorten their life. Try changing the bulbs to the new dimmable CFL's and see if it helps. It should eliminate your problem altogether.

Replaced cfl bulbs, but the flicker for 15 sec before starting.


Do you have a receiver in the fan or is it direct wired? If it is direct wired and there is no dimmer on the wall it may be a light-limiter issue. Fans roughly 2006 and newer have a limiting device in the light circuit. When they start to fail they are known to flicker or go dead completely. If you find a light limiter most people remove it.

Hunter fan Model 20722 lights flash several times when turned on?


Not the capacitor. If this fan has a remote make sure it's set for incandescent bulb & not CFL bulb. Should be where you install the battery. Also, make sure you're using the correct wattage as it might have a limiter in the fan.

Do you have mod.#98480x light limiter A


This is a wattage limiter inside the the fan. If you have replaced the lamps recently, you have probably put in those with greater wattage than permitted. Replace the lamps with same as original. If it still flashes, you could remove the light limiter and wire direct.

I need a replacement part for a rhine pl-190B


A PL-190B ceiling fan module is is a Wattage Limiter rated at 190W maximum. It is about 1" square and has a red, blue and white factory wired into the fan's light circuit in most cases. The AC power to the lights is run through the module to "ensure" no one puts more than 190W (about 2 amps)of light bulbs through the circuit for "safety" reasons. So four 60w bulbs and some CFLs will trip the module. These wattage limiters are sometimes feeding the fan motor in addition to the lights, however the units I have seen just control the "blue wire" going to the lights.
Some suggest simply cutting it out and splice the blue and red wires (or blue and blue) that are left in the fan after removing out the module. If the module has two whites, wirenut them together separately. Otherwise just insulate or cap the single white.
At that point your ceiling fan and lights are like all others made before 2005 and depend on the circuit breaker and you to only use four 40w bulbs max in the fan. As indicated, some low wattage CFLs will also trip the module. Some internet sources have the PL-190B available for around $15.

Wattage limiter hunter ceiling fan


As per the Energy Policy Act of 2005, all ceiling fans manufactured or imported into the United States must utilize a light bulb wattage limiter as of January 1, 2007. This limiter limits the capacity of the fan's light kit to a maximum of 40 watts per bulb. Not very bright at all!

Put in LED lamps and save a lot of work. Go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WeWSKNe64A it will show you how.
