3 speeds settings - only 1 speed and that is fast

I have a tall cinni fan, that works OK, apart from the fact that no matter what speed setting I switch it to, it ends up going at top speed, which is annoyingly noisy. I would like speed setting 1 to be sedate, and 3 to be top wack, with 2 somewhere imbetween. 1 does start of quiet, but within 20 secs moves up to top speed. How can I get a balanced range of speeds?

    could be. I have taken the thing apart, and trace the wires from the speed selector to the solenoid, where they mysteriously seem to join it. I am hoping that I can tweak something to turn it from a bad speed selector to a good speed selector...

I believe that your fan speed selector is bad.

Inside blower fan speed control only works on #4 (maximum blower speed). Settings 1, 2 and 3 do not run the blower. Fuses are OK. What could the problem be to keep settings 1, 2 and 3 from working?

OK this problem i had in my 1993 lincoln continental, the fan button dial thing is electric, your would have to fully take it appart to see what gave, but the only easy solution to your problem would be installing a light dial from homedepot yes the ones that dim the lights, and connecting that to your blower wires, then drilling ahole in a good spot under the dash where you can ajust it, that will give you all control slow and fast, wile always being on on 4 in your car. The light switch is the only thing that would be able to work for the amout of amps going thru it, anything else will cost more then 6 dollars so if you want a quick fix this is it. or you will have to go to a junk yard rip out a whole new unit and replace it, depending how much you like the car.

I own a 2005 jeep liberty. the ac, heater fan only works on selector switch setting # 4. nay sugesstions on why fan does not work on settings 1, 2 or 3.

The lower speeds are accomplished by running the power supply through various resistors that drop the voltage which makes the blower turn at different speeds. The lowest setting uses all the resistors to drop the voltage as much as possible to turn the blower as slow as possible. High speed uses no resistors so the blower gets full power and turns as fast as possible.

Since speed 1 and speed 2 use the speed 3 resistor to drop there voltage and speed three is not working as well my guess is the speed three resistor is burnt out in the device referred to as the blower motor resistor or blower motor speed control module. This is located near the blower motor and is held in place with 2 screws. There will be several wires and possibly two connectors plugged into it.

These are really common failures in many vehicles. The parts are usually available at your local auto parts store and they are typically not that expensive.

Hope that helped.

Fan on c3 will only work on no 4 setting 1 2 3 not working any ideas

these systems use a resistor pack,setting 1 2 3 go through resistors to vary fan speed, 4 is fast speed-- no resistor in circuit. don't know where it is located but usualy in aplace it can get cool air, try follow the wires back from the fan motor to the switch.

Heater/ a/c blower motor only works on low speed no matter what speed its set at

It is a blower resistor set. This resistor set regulates current which gives you the various fan speed settings. Depending on the vehicle it is located under the dash on either passenger or driver's side.

My tall Cinni standard fan isn't working. When you switch it on you can hear the motor trying, but the fan blades don't move at all. It's boiling today in my office, so we'd like to know what might be up...

Stage 1: unscrew 2No. top and bottom nut/bolt put to one side, lift 4No. hinge clips and remove front cage.
Stage 2: partially unscrew spindle screw on fan body then slide fan off spindle.
Stage 3: plug in fan turn to setting '1' (lowest setting, the motor will hum but not rotate) now with a hammer 'carefully' tap the spindle so that it is aligned within the housing, it may need to lo left, right, up, down whatever direction it needs to sit centrally withing the bushes of the front and rear housings. Then tap the end of the spindle which sometimes re-engages/realigns the spindle within the rear bush.
Stage 4: reverse of stage 2 & 1
Good luck

Fan speed too fast

Is there a light switch control or just straight power to the fan? They do sell "Fan" controll switches just like a regular dimmer, but for a fan. If there is just straight power u would still be able to install a remote that could lessen the speed. Even if it is just pull chains. the remote would have three speeds and if u kept the pull chain on low, maybe the low remote speed could work.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue

Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.

Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade with remote control at wall.

1. Set the remote to run the fan on high.
2. Pull the fan speed chain until the fan reaches high speed.
3. All speeds should work normally now.
The remote is modulating the maximum speed as set by the pull chain.
