I have a newer Minka w/ wall controller. The books says to make sure both the wall control and the receiver(up in the fan) are both programmed the same. My receiver has no little switches but has a sticker stating that you need to hold the 'fan off' button down for 3 seconds after turning on the power so the receiver can memorize the program in the wall switch. You have 60 sec to do this after power is turned on. Good luck !

There are tiny dip switches on the remote as well as on the receiver. Make sure they are set to the same sequence. The receiver is the black box that all the wires connect to in the ceiling.

Please see my Solution to the post about the "HOT" motor, with blades that don't turn.
The Minka Aire Gyro fan heads do NOT have any exposed screws that can be tightened. Checking the rear (wood color) pointy trim piece -- first loosen, turn fan blades a bit, then it. tighten back up.
If your fan was just fine before, and now it's cranky, the problem could be the motor head's "tweaked" out of balance: EITHER from the rear trim piece (see above), or from the twin support arms. OR, the fan head has somehow gotten off-kilter and is whirling out of balance.
FIRST, gently rock each fan blade - they are PVC plastic, not wood, and should not Warp. Do they all look the same? Do they feel snug or loose in the fan head? IF that's all good...
1) With the fan OFF, swing that motor head thru it's up and down range a few times, make sure it's moving like the good one.
2) do the above-mentioned pointy trim piece thing, and the "swing thru" thing; rec-check BY HAND to see if it's corrected.
3) If not, check for fan head wobble by slowly turning the blade (fan head) and see if it's running parallel to the motor head. IF NOT, use a thin plastic (spatula) and gently wedge the kiltered side back to parallel - recheck afte each "nudge". It should spin nice and flat with no wobble, and not feel loose, either!
BY HAND: Spin the blades fast - does it bang? NO? great!
Yes? Double check that the grill hasn't gotten banged, and pushing into the blade's path. Re-try the "adjustment" of the fan head - if it still does not remove the problem, then the internal motor shaft supports may be loose, or broken.
Hope this Helps!

According to the URL at:
there are dip switches on the fan. They are on the receiver that is most likely tucked away in the bell housing at the ceiling level.
Pull the bell housing down and you will find a box of sorts that has the switches on it.
This is the receiver.
If this solution is helpful to you, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating. Thank you, Paul
