Question about Westinghouse Dryers

Open Question

The forward/reverse switch stopped working. Upon investigation the switch disintegrated/broke off the fan, can the fan be wired to run one way only

There are no replacement parts for this switch, so we wouls like to wire the fan to run one way only as we live in a hot climate...is this possible it is a Westinghouse 5 blade/4 light model, and I think it is more than 10 years old.

Sounds like the wire that goes to the flame sensor switch if it is gas there is a black wire and a white wire that goes to it its on the left side of the gas valve on the flame housing tube / pipe

SOURCE: Reversing blade direction

I just found this on another site. The answerer there said he hit "med-hi-med-hi" on the remote. I tried that, nothing seemed to work. I was impatient and frustrated and I did that a bunch of times, then tried "lo-hi-lo-hi" a few times. Anyway, I finally gave up and it worked! So it was one of the combos of 2 speeds that worked. It's great!

SOURCE: Replace exhaust fan with fan & light?

Let's say you originally only had one switch (to operate the fan). And at the fan you have only one black, one white, and one ground (bare or green). You can still put in a fan/light combo. but both the light and the fan will always come on together when you flip the switch. To do this you'd connect the black from the switch to the black AND the blue on the fan and connect the white from the switch to both whites on the fan and connect the ground from the switch to either a green or bare wire on the fan or to a green screw on the fan housing somewhere (whatever is available).

Hello, I replaced a light fixture on my existing Emerson ceiling fan. The light worked right away but the blades didn't turn. I could hear power going to the motor so I went back into the switch cup and...


Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    Motor Humming but blades not running


    Hi m.. if this is a new installation, look up at the area where the blades attach and be sure that you have removed all the black rubber packing stops. If this has been running and now does not , then you probably have a bad capacitor on the motor.

    Fan runs in reverse but not in forward. Motor


    There is a capacitor connected on the fan motor it must be broken. The explanation is a bit technical but since your description match on my previous experience, I would conclude that it is really the cause of your problem.

    Hampton Bay ceiling fan - will not reverse


    It sounds like the direction switch has a broken connection on the "reverse" side.  Should be an easy fix (but you might need a soldering iron).

    Read this on another thread - apparently the solution came from HB's tech support.
    Turn the fan speed to HI and then select Reverse.  You should hear a "click" and see the fan reverse direction.  It seems that the reversing relay only works when the fan speed is set to HI.
    Good Luck!!

    Fridg not cold


    your story is very odd but likely nobody is messing with the door switch hwen you moved , or the wires could have shorted out. normally, the door switch, when you open a door would switch on a cabinet light and turn off the blower. in your case, its the reverse, as you open a door, the blower runs and if you close the door, the blower stops. im not sure if you can figure out which pair is the normally close and which one is the normally open on the door switch in order to swap them or you may rplace the door switch.
