Question about Monte Carlo Arch 5AHR60RBD Roman Bronze Ceiling Fan
When u say after replacing the battery it worked and now it stopped... the battery contacts may have corroded..... if thats not the issue.....
if u have Fluorescent lights... they have what is called a ballast. It is a transformer like thing. They frequently go bad, more so if you leave the bulb in long after the ends darken. if they have power in, and a new bulb doesn't light, it is the ballast. it may have been shorting the coils for the fan as well.. check them out.....Do make sure it is getting power before replacing it.
Is this ceiling fan/light combo wall switch controlled..? If so - does each have it's own switch...or are you using only the factory pull-chains for control of the fan and lights..?
What we've occassionally found when we check all connections up at the fan box...and found them to be solid and tight..is that every once in awhile the wiring harness that connects the light kit to the fan housing pops loose...and this can cause your symptoms when everything else has been ruled out. With the breaker off...have you checked for this possibility..? If not...remove the screws (usually 3) that secure the lighting kit to the fan housing...and double check it's plug-in connector...sometimes the vibration from the fan can knock them loose.
We've also found that sometimes the pull-chain can go bad internally...you can check for this by repeatedly pulling the chain for the light kit to see if it ever makes/breaks power to the lights....sometimes working the pull chain thru several sequences will restore contact. If not - the pull chain assembly may need to be replaced.
If this fan/light combo is controlled by seperate wall switches...you may have a bad switch (or loose wire at the switch)....but only testing will confirm that. Be sure to do all examinations with the breaker off.
So - where you have checked the pull chain and wiring harness for the light kit.....and ALL power connections up at the ceiling box (as above) and have assured that the light kit is properly connected to a power wire up at the ceiling box (on most fans - the lighting section is a blue wire, the fan is black and they both have a white common. If you have a 3 wire feed up at the ceiling box...the fan's black will hook to the power black, the lights blue will hook to the power red....and the units white to the power white. If it is only a 2 wire feed in the ceiling box....the fans black and the lights blue will both hook to the power black)....and ALL that appears to be okay...then there may be some kind of defect in this fan (or an internal problem that will take much more detailed troubleshooting)...a new unit may be the easiest (and quickest) solution....short of completely taking the entire unit apart for detailed bench testing. They just don't make them like they used to Al...
if u feel i ve spent my time for u... kindly rate my service.......
good luck.... if i were u ..... if all the above fails i wud go for a new fan..... have a nice day
