Question about Heritage (5BUW52WZ4HN) 52'' Ceiling Fan

2 Answers

My 3-speed ceiling fan is connected to an on/off wall switch that turns it on and off but the pull chain does not control the speeds. It is stuck on slow speed. I tried replacing the pull chain switch in the canopy but it's the same result. How do i get my medium and high speeds to work?

    I have a 3-speed fan (no light) connected to on/off wall switch that works. pull chain on ceiling fan does not control the speeds. how do i get the pull chain to change the speeds? I assume the wall switch needs to be a different type for the speeds to change. what type of wall switch allows for my fan to change speeds by the pull chain switch? I don't necesarrily need/want a remote control or fan speed control on the wall although i will certainly do that if necesarry.

Hi,

Guess what? A standard dimmer switch will not properly operate a fan motor. In fact, it’s most likely going to damage the fan motor and it could even potentially cause a fire. I’ll admit I even went out and bought a dimmer switch and I sat down to just “make sure” I was doing the right thing when I figured this out.
Standard dimmer switches are designed for the wattage of lights. Fan controls are designed for the amperage of the fan motor. So if you want to control the speed of a ceiling fan make sure you buy a fan speed control that specifically says it works for fans. Fan controls come in quite a few styles. The most common type has been around for quite some time and that is the rotary or dial type. The next most common fan control I found was the toggle that has three pre-set speeds (slow, medium and fast). You can also get a fan control that has a slider control along with a toggle switch.
My 3-speed ceiling fan is - dimmer+switch.jpgThe type that I want to install is a toggle switch with a small slider switch next to it. I have a feeling I’ll have to order one of these but I’ll check with my electrician tomorrow to find out the scoop. The bottom line is you can’t use a standard dimmer switch to control a ceiling fan. You have to get a fan speed control switch that is specifically designed to operate fan motors.












the short wire leads coming from the switch should be attached to other wires with small wire nuts. Just unscrew the wire nuts, unscrew the finial type cap that holds the switch in place, remove the switch and take it to the store. If your lights are strictly "ON"-"OFF" there should be just two wires from the switch. If your lights are controlled - "One" "TWO" or "THREE" at a time the switch will probably have three wires coming from it.

I have a 3 speed fan controlled by 3 speed wall switch; fan hums on low, louder hum on medium, and high position eliminates hum but speed reduced to low. Is it the fan or the wall switch?


Check the capacitor (black box with wires going to switch) and see if that's going bad. If it's not that, take the control out of the wall and just use the pull chain to see if it runs correctly. If it does, you need a new wall control. DO NOT USE A DIMMER SWITCH!

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

When you only have two wires in the ceiling , that means that you have only one switch for this fan. The green connects to all green and bare wires and to the mounting bracket .. the white to white .. and the ceiling black connects to the fan black and blue wires .. In this installation the fan and light can be controlled independently with the pull chains
In order to have indipendent control at the wall you would need two switches and another wire going from the switch to the fan/light

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Fan stuck on LOW speed


It seems to me you have a faulty switch or the internal wiring is wrong. You can access the switch from the bottom of the fanwhere the light kit is connected. the wiring could have gotten mixed up when the light kit was installed.

hi there,
that was a common problem on that fan, the chord chain was stuck on slot groove way to rotary switch inside you ceiling fan,the only way to
repair this to disconnect and pull out the ceiling fan and dismantle the housing whrere the control switch is located, b4fb3a6.jpg upon opening you can see the groove where chord chain was stuck released,possible if you can change the chord w/c is a smooth one so it will never stuck,then reassembly again and put it back, or you can change the control switch by modifying the circuit control and put it on your wall,but this is not easy job you can hire and certified technician to do this,have a good day.don't forget to rate me,thanks a lot.
