Question about Minka Aire Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

How do you connect the wiring of the Minka Aire Concept I and II to existing multi-switch that has a separate function for the light and fan? The unit has just 2 wires (black and white) and the ground, and our previous ceiling fan had a black, white, red, and ground. The red was for fan control and the black was for the light. What do I connect the switch red wire to the Concept I or II fan so that the multi switch fan portion will operate correctly or separately?

SOURCE: I currently have 2 switches on the wall for a ceiling fan(this was pre-installed when I bought my new home, but my Minka

The red and white should be hot all the time for the fan to run even when the light is not in use. The black and white wires are used for the switch on the wall to turn the light on. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: minka aire concept II ceiling fan bulb replacement

The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.

Newly installed Minka aire concept II ceiling fan is poorly lit. Installed in my son's bedroom and it's useless, dim.


probably not the reason for the dim light. It probably has more to do with the installation where you have wired the light before or after the fan so that power so the bulb is reduced by the resistance in the fan.
lights and fans are wired in parallel so that one doesn't affect the other
Might pay to talk with an electrician on the issue
There is a limit on the size of the bulb that can be used and a 100 watt halogen bulb will probably melt the surrounds and set fire to the fitting

Minka Aire Fan will not reverse.


My fan is a concept II and it had the same behavior. I called Minka Aire support about this - they said it was either the reverse module or the receiver. They sent me both no charge! I replaced them and now my fan reverses. i am not an electrician, but the replacement was fairly easy. Just made sure to disconnect 1 wire at a time, connect it to the new wire, etc until I was done. Minka Aire support said they would walk me through it on the phone but I didn't need them to.
