Question about Patton Electric Dryers

1 Answer

Floor fan has stopped working

This 3 speed fan has a radio frequency remote control PCB that has failed. Neither the remote control nor the manual push button control on the PCB work. I would like to replace the PCB with a simple manual 3 speed control switch.

Is this a reasonable request? Where to obtain a suitable 3 speed switch? The fan motor is rated 120 volts, 60 hertz, 2.7 amps.

The fan motor is in good working order. It is a shame that Patton no longer services what they sell.

As the manual push buttons don't work, it is possible the remote and receiver are working ok and the fault is elsewhere on the pcb and is perhaps something your local tv and radio repair shop could tackle.

The motor speed control is probably achieved by electronic rather than electrical methods and it would be more practical to repair the existing system than to attempt modification - finding a suitable 4-position switch capable of reliable operation with an inductive load of nearly 3 amps (plus safety margin) presents one problem, matching it to a method of speed control and installing it neatly and safely is quite another.

Practically speaking and considering the low cost of imported fans, such a conversion is not worth carrying out. There is a worthwhile alternative however...
In the old days there was a ready market for an easy method of controlling the speed of small electric motors and the introduction of the diac and triac and the thyristor made it possible and soon the papers and magazines filled with adverts such as "Control Drill Speeds". That was just the beginning as the success of such devices spawned a host of power controllers and dimmer switches in steps or continuously with just a single control.

You could construct such a device from one of the many available project circuits or buy a power controller ready built. A good one is not cheap but should last a long, long time.
A standard dimmer switch might handle the job but dimmer switches aren't usually suitable for an inductive load.

I hope I have provided food for thought and further research. Good luck!

SOURCE: need a replacement fan speed potentiometer.

Okay -- first off, I don't know where she got that number from, but that's idiotic.

The variable-speed switch will provide different readings depending on where it's turned to. If the switch is busted ("open), it will typically display a reading of 'infinity' on your ohmmeter.

And yes -- the best place to find a replacement is Radio Shack, since Casablanca discontinued them.

HOWEVER---

Casablanca's variable-speed ceiling fans -- specifically the "SlumberQuiet" ones, which were made from circa 1980 or 1981 to the early/mid 1990s when variable-speed was discontinued -- are well-known for breaking down. The problem is almost never the potentiometer (variable-speed dial). Rather, the problem is almost always the resistor which is mounted in the heat-sink inside the fan's motor housing. There are NO replacements left for these -- so Casablanca makes a "variable-speed to 3-speed conversion kit", which will convert your fan to a more normal 3-speed pull-chain (hi-med-low) setup.

I hope that helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

SOURCE: Hunter Fan has stopped accepting remote control signals

The receiver is at the bottom of your fan (just above any light kits), inside a round case about 4 inches tall. You will have to take 3-4 screws out and inside you will see the receiver. It should have an electrical connector going to it with dip switch as well. It will pull right out of the case.

By the way, I am having the same problem and am trying to get ahold of Hunter for a new receiver.

SOURCE: Looking to replace Patton fan motor, model 1010mp, style TJ74SP

If you are up to disassembling your motor, you will find a thermal cutout near the windings which frequently fails open. Replacements are readily available, or just jumper it out. If the bearings are shot or the windings burned you're out of luck. Trust me, a new motor will cost more than a whole new fan.

SOURCE: Bay Model # 526-012 Fans what size speed control

I can't see any reason why a Leviton fan speed control couldn't be used on any ceiling fan, after all, I don't even think Leviton makes ceiling fans. Second, you may be able to try using the 1.5 amp fan speed control and see if you can get by. The worst that could happen is the speed control wouldn't work or would only work for a short time and be junk.

Will this remote take care of my ceiling fan #99500


most ceiling fans run at certain frequency around 2.5khz
i do have sound bar that can run my floor fan,
go to local hardware store with fan information and they sale most remotes there and the remotes need to be programmed most of the time depending what features you fan has.
my fans has 3 speeds, led light remote turn on and off, pull chain turn fan light off or on, forward and reverse modes

Cp9430r


Fixed Hunter ceiling fan with remote light pin out wiring 9 wire plug search words
Hunter Ceiling Fan with remote, fails to turn on light, fails to turn on fan..remote receiver is Cp9430r
1) Test your remote, Hunter uses Radio Frequency remote, point RF remote one inch from antenna of working AM radio, press each button on remote, each button will produce static sound from AM radio, if no sound..check battery wiring or solder connection on loop antenna of remote. If no sound on one or more buttons, disassemble and wash key pad with dish soap, rinse and fan dry, retest. If still one button no work apply graphite paint to button to rebuild conductivity of button.
2) Cp9430r receiver is below fan and above light. Remove light assembly, check receiver dip switches, mine was #5 On 1~4 Off, check remote control dip switches in 9v battery compartment also set #5 On 1~4 Off, new 9v battery still no Fan reversal "click" sound heard coming from the large Blue fan reversal relay located inside the Cp9430 receiver. All other buttons control transistors and will make no sound even if they are working.
3) Disassemble / unplug 9 wire plug from Cp9430r receiver, place receiver on wooden table, 9 wire plug has two empty pin squares, one empty in the center, the other empty we will call #1 ..counting clockwise #2,#3...#4,#5..#6,#7and finally top center next to empty #1 is #8. Now #8 is 110v hot/black ...& #4 neutral/white.
4) Shock Danger..carefully apply ac volts to pins #8,#4 use tape if needed, locate quad operational amplifier i call it radio receiver chip HA17324 on board, google HA17324 Datasheet, locate leg #14 it is across from leg #1. Locate small yellow ceramic capacitor very near leg #14, use capacitor's neg as neg for voltmeter, test volts at #1,#7,#8 and #14. My #1 was 3.1v, #7 3.2v, #8 3.25v and #14 .01v ...why #14 so low? I monitored each leg while pressing remote control buttons...no changes. **Desperate, I sparked (1/2 second or less) #14 with 3.14v from positive leg of yellow capacitor** and retested all legs, no change except now #14 rests at .02v and jumps to 2.5v~2.8v when any button on the remote is pressed then rests at .02v. Now Lights work, Fan speeds work, Reverse rotation Works :-)
Pin Out on 9 wire plug, #1 Empty pin, #2 Alternates w up/down fan rotation, #3 goes to 5uf fan capacitor other side of cap goes to white/neutral AC Line, #4 AC Line neutral, #5 goes to Triac? speeds? , #6 Alternates up/down fan rotation goes to up/dn blue relay, #7 goes to up/dn blue relay looks to be AC hot looking for fan probably paired with #3 changing sides at up/dn blue relay, #8 AC Line hot in. Why did **sparking** work, smarter people might know, i think a small spark got stuck in the chip and sparking helped the chip release it out. No electrical education, novice. Jer. 51 8,9 and 11

My ceiling fan/light goes on when I am not in the room. The remote is on the bureau. I sometimes put the remote in another room but the fan/light still goes on. Model 327185-060


The simple solution is to turn the wall switch OFF when, the fan is not in use. I really don't think the remote alone is the culprit. Because, you say it happens even when it's in the bureau or in another room. Remote controls for ceiling fans have a very short range and are generally infrared remotes, rather than radio frequency remotes. So, if the infrared signal does not reach the receiver's sensor in the fan, it won't function. If it's a radio frequency remote control, do you have any other remote controlled fans in the house? If so, does the suspect fan seem to turn ON after you have activated the other fan? If that happens, it means both remote controls are on the same frequency. Changing the frequency of one, should solve the problem. See your Owner's Manual for directions on how to reprogram the frequency codes.

If none of the above solves the problem, maybe you should contact the "Ghost Hunters" TV show.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Fan has worked fine for 1 year all of a sudden, fan does not work with remote. If I turn on the outlet switch fan works at high speed only, without any control from the remote


Take the remote aparts,clean the PCB with some Q tips with rubbbing alchahol.Check the back of the rubbers buttons back back films.If clean the PCB with some rubbing alchahol and the back films of the buttons are good.After the process,the remote should work.Not,than the reomote CPU is dead and it useless.

4 ceiling fans functioning intermittantly


Either that or there is some kind of RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) coming from somewhere in the house or maybe from outside.

Have you installed new cordless phones, two way radios, remote controlled devices, wireless internet access, wireless intercoms, garage openers or something that emits some kind of radio signal?

Have your next door neighbor? (If he lives close enough) Good luck!

We just installed yesterday. Ran it with remote for about 3 hrs, on and off, tested speed, reverse, all worked. Come back 5 hrs later and go to turn it on and it does not work. Usually i hear a beep when...


The beep comes from the receiver in the fan hub. If no beep, I would suspect the receiver is not responding to the remote.

Reasons could be:

- loose connections to/from receiver or,

- with bad luck, the receiver could have failed already (loose conections could cause premature receiver failure) or,

- the fan pull-chain switch is off -- your scenario does not allow for the chain being pulled during the 5 hours the fan was not run, but who knows... or,

- receiver/remote are out of synch (set on different frequencies). Are there dip switches in receiver/remote to set frequency, or is the frequency set by the remote with a combination of button pushing? If the latter, maybe the frequencies for the two are were accidentally set out of synch...

More info, let me know...

Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed


It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

Remote Control Problem


I had this problem. One day everything worked. The next day the fan ran at 1 speed and the remote didn't turn on the light, change fan speed, nothing. I changed batteries on the remote - no good. As you should know, the dip switches on the remote and on the fan have to match - which makes the remote and the fan on the same radio frequency so they can talk to each other. (They let you change radio frequency so that you don't control a similar fan down the hall as well as the one in the room that you intended to control.) Anyway, come to find out from the fan guy at Home Depot that sometime the dip switches on the fan "fall" out of place leaving the remote unable to talk to the fan. Sounded crazy, but sure enough one of the dip switches on the fan wasn't tightly in place. Once all the dip switches were tightly in place (with the fan dip switches matching the remote dip switches) everything ran fine. To change the dip switches on my fan that meant uninstalling the fan from the ceiling and taking the big top cover off to expose the dip switches.

Remote control stopped working


Under the dome (where the electrical connections are) is the receiver unit for the fan. It could be that it is no longer working. Also the remote may have dip switches to change the frequency channel (sometimes located behind the batteries) check that these have not been changed or check they correspond to the receiver unit on the fan.
