Question about Dryers
We have a harbor breeze remote ceiling fan. During a thunderstorm both of the remote controlled fans stopped working. The switch is on, but the blades, nor lights work. Could the lightning have caused an issue?
I've been having the same problem with my remote not working. I actually just checked the dipswitches in the remote against the ones in the ceiling fan, and they somehow were not the same. It seems that the 4th dipswitch may have inadvertently been altered due to the battery either being changed or just moving. I advise you all check out the settings on the actual fan to see whether or not they match up.
Twist the cap covering the wiring above the fan (make sure the power is off, just in case), and you will see a black box like thing straddled towards the top. There is a little rubber square cap guarding the dipswitches. Take that off and note the setting of the 4 switches (on/off). Compare it with the remote by taking the batter pack off and looking at the 4 switches there.
I noticed that the 4th switch on my remote was turned on when it should have been off. I changed it back, and now it works.
Hopefully this helps you all.
