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...


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.
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.

Hunter fan light switch won't turn off light


by looking at the sw. it looks like u can only put it to a low dim and not off and the button at the bottom is all off including the fan if this is correct u should be able to change to a different kind of fan sw. combo or even a remote style that comes with a receiver ,also your fan should have three wires at the box a light wire "blue" a fan wire "black" and a neutral "white" oh and a ground "green" in order to switch these separate u need those 3 wires at the sw. also . but with a remote u only need the hot and neutral it hooks up in the box or canopy of the fan to the receiver all wires are marked for easy installation turn power off to be safe u can install a regular sw. to over ride the remote and turn power off at the fan .......its alot i know but hit me up if u need more help.

Wirring diagram for thermostat


The wiring diagram is usually placed on the chassis. You will most likely have to pull the unit out of it's housing to find it.

I need to reverse direction of fan


mcdevito75 here, Close to the ceiling but still on the fan motor shroud should be another small pull chain switch, this pull chain switch is the fan reverse switch, the switch may also be a toggle switch but I doubt it. Look close to the other pull chain switch for the fan, for the reverse switch.

Our fan is going in the reverse direction...how do we switch it?


mcdevito75 here, Generally, The Fan switch itself is a pull chain type switch on the fan motor itself, this is a fan speed switch, NOW! also generally the reverse fan swtich is another shorter pull chain switch just about an inch away from the Fan Speed switch or the longer pull chain switch on the fan motor. This reverse switch can also be a toggle type or slide type switch but will be close to the fan speed switch on the fan motor itself.

Cannot turn off a pull-chain fixture


It sounds like you have accidentally by-passed the switch. The switch only needs one power leg to the pull-chain switch and the other 3 wires go on the other wire of the switch. The white wires get connected together as you have done.

Please turn off the power before you make a change.

I need a pull chain DIMMER switch for my fan light. Only one set of wires supplies the fan and light. Surely SOMEBODY has a pull chain dimmer ??? Thanks. Bill


Bought three fans for the bedrooms, all hunters with pull chain dimmers. Less than one year and two of the three dimmers are shot. Can't find a replacement so I bypassed it. Remove light assembly and unplug 9pin connector. Remove black vented dimmer assembly by removing wire nuts and disconnecting the 2wire connector(black and white wires). Cut the 2wire connector off and save it in case you find a part someday. Wire nut black to black(hot) and white to white(neutral). You will disable the pull chain by wire nutting those two wires together.

Power switch wiring


Locate your battery on the motherboard. It should be near the edge closest to the front of your machine. Look along that edge for a two or three contact header (connector with stiff gold plated wires sticking straight up). Near the header you will see in very small white writing "PWR SW". That's it. If it isn't on that edge, continue looking along the edge closest to the bottom of your machine. It i along that edge on some boards.
