Question about Boston Harbor Dryers
BOSTON HARBOR CF-78042 CEILING FAN MAKES A CLICK SOUND AND THEN THE LIGHTS TURN OFF BUT THE FAN WILL STILL WORK. IF I TURN THE SWITCH OFF AND BACK ON THE LIGHTS WORK FOR A UNKNOWN AMOUNT OF TIME BEFORE THE DREADED CLICK AND THEN ITS LIGHTS OUT AGAIN. ANY HELP WOULD BE APRICIATED
Have the lamps been replaced with ones with more than 60 Watts? Make sure all lamps are 60 watts, or less. Try 40W bulbs. If that fixes it, you just had lamps that were too hot. If not, you will probably need to replace the lamp control module. Try Boston Harbor's web site or try your local hardware store.

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.
Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

One black wire on the switch hooked to the black sources wire. The other black wire on the switch hooked black up to the fan. The green on the switch wire goes to the bare wire. If there is bare wire you can use the white wire.

Both the remote and reciever in the fan base have the ability to have the codes changed. What is happening is you are getting radio interference that is causing the problem. Change the codes by either switching the switches in different positions or adding more dip clips that came with the fan. In any case change the codes in both the reciever and remote to the same code and you should no longer have a problem. Usually the place to change the code in the remote is in the battery area and are small switches (usually 5 or 6 of them) and unfortunately you will have to take the fan down to do the one there.
