Question about Hampton Bay Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

The double rheostat (fan speed control and light dimmer -- two side-by-side sliders) is not working for the lights, and I need to replace it -- where can I get one? If the model number of the ceiling fan is required, where do I find it? I bought this house with the unit already in place so I have no literature on the unit.

That's not necessary. Lowes, Home Depot, or any lighting or hardware store that sells residential switches should be able to provide you with a new switch in any style or kind that you like.

Hello Tom ,   I'm sure i can help you with this.... I work on these units everyday. unfortuneately im not there to put my hands on it but i will explain as clearly as possible.    The most common problem I tend to find with these units is that the control board  and indoor fan motor tends to go bad in these quite often.  If you put the unit in A/C MODE  and/or Fan mode and set it to high if it will not speed up from low , then your problem could be in a couple different places.   1st.  The bearings in the fan motor could be wearing down ,  2nd  The Control board could be bad  in that its not telling the fan motor to speed up.     

 

And when you tell me that the compressor doesnt run in that mode at any given time..... which the electric heat and heat pump itself works together so that when the load is really tough  that the heat pump doesnt over work and in general saves life on your compressor.      

 

Solution is this.

 

Take your indoor fan motor off and and drill out the rivits  and it pulls apart easy, and replace the bearings and grease them.

 

ALIGNMENT OF THE FAN IS A MUST.   doesnt cost much at all the fix this. Just a little time and bearings

 

Replace the Board in the control box

 

 

This my friend will definetly solve your problem.    These problems i see everyday with these same units.

SOURCE: I have an SMC ceiling fan, unknown what model

Good luck on that one, I needed one for a job & ended up buying a new fan, got tired of trying to find one. I'd watch for yeard sales. auctions, or even fans on sale at big chain stores like, walmart, home depot, or lowes. Not unusual to see complete fan for $20 -$30. Then use parts , or install entire fan.

MY HUNTER ORIGINAL RUNS THRU AN ORDINARY WALL SWITCH. IT HAS HI AND LO SPEEDS ON THE HOUSING, BUT EVEN LO SPEED IS A BIT TOO FAST AT TIMES... HOW CAN I CONTROL THE SPEED THRU FULL RANGE... A RHEOSTAT...


Jim,

You have a special fan there. Hunter Originals are my specialty.

There are two ways to accomplish a slower speed with this fan.

1. A wall variable speed control, solid state, rated for 3 or more amps, regular fan controls will not work as your fan draws 2.5amps on high, not even new ones that are labeled for the Original.

2. Retrofit the fan to make it a three speed. If you're good with wiring, it's really simple. What you need is, a standard 3 speed pull chain switch, not a double pole one like cheaper/new fans have that use capacitor speed control, we are using cap. speed control, but not the same way they do. So you want an "SP3T" switch. You also need an 9 10 or 11 or 12 MFD capacitor (depending on how fast you want your low to be 8 is 20rpm, 11 is 75 approximately). You will remove the switch cap to your fan, and you will find your switch has a black, blue and red wire connected to it. Remove all wires, attach the black to L on your new switch, attach blue to 1, then you need 2 extra pieces of wire. Stick one wire in 2 and the second wire in 3. Now, get your capacitor and hook one side of it to the red wire and position 2, then hook the other side to the wire you put in position three.

Remember to get the Single pole switch for non capacitor speed control fans, if you get the double pole, both winding sets in your fan will be activated, which will draw double current and burn your motor out.

Also, are you aware that your fan uses oil (like an engine) ? and is not permanently lubricated?

I don't think you can do what you are trying. The fan & light are on one circuit. Probably, originally, there was only a light fixture there. The fan/light is on a single circuit and the remote does the controlling of both units.
Now, you are trying to install a fan control and light dimmer but you don't have wiring for each separately.
You might be able to use one of the dimmer controls to adjust the output to the fan/light combination, but you can't control them individually, if I understand your wiring.

Where can I find replacement knobs for the dual slider lutron fan light switches?


I don't think they're a standard off-the-shelf item. But I would call Lutron's tech support center at 1-800-523-9466 - they're available 24/7 and they'll probably just send you some.

Wiring Question


No, the way the motor speed control works is different from the way a light dims. If you connect it, it might work for a while, but it will either burn up the dimmer or the fan motor.

Need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help


you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

Control fan/light separately, with only two wires


They are available at Home Depot and Lowes. Hunter makes a wall mounter dimmer that will control the lights and fan speed separately. There is a receiving unit that mounts above the fan to the house wires on one side and the others connect to the fan.

The two hots you mentioned should be a black one and a blue one. The blue is for the lights; the black the fan. Ground everything you can to boxes, etc, if the house is only a two wire system without a ground.

I believe that remote wall switch and receiver runs close to $40.

Quit working


first turn it off, then rotate the fan, half turn and try to turn if on again. if it start running again you have a faulty motor, and need to replace it. or if the problem continue, try replacing the switch in the wall.
