SOURCE: Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan At Slow Speed

I recently replaced my hampton bay fan for the same reason (slow at all speeds) and discovered scorched and melted capacitors and wiring inside the fan. My suggestion is to stop using fan and replace immediately.

Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.

The wall switch has to be on for the remote to work. You should only be using the remote.

Open Question I have installed a ceiling fan and have run the wires to a wall switch that also has only one black wire and one white wire. How do you wire to a double switch


Trust Me ...I am an electrician. There is no way (legally) to do what you want to do with the wiring that exists. One of two things can happen at this point...1) rewire the switch leg with 3 wire cable (Type NM-B aka Romex with 3 conductors + ground). This involves some skill and maybe some drywall repair. OR 2) buy a remote control for your ceiling fan. They sell them at most home improvement stores, and they install fairly easily in the motor housing of your ceiling fan. The transmitter runs off of batteries, and doesn't require special wiring to operate. Your wall switch will have to remain ON for you to operate, but the remote can handle the rest, like dimming your lights and fan speed control. Good luck!

Hunter fan remote bypass


This fan uses a "ballast" to run the fan. The ballast (part #272) probably contains wiring for multiple speeds. Here is a manual that discusses the wiring- http://www.hunterfan.com/SupportDocuments/OwnersManuals/42700.pdf.
To use a wall mounted fan dimmer, you need to identify the high speed wires and connect them to the dimmer switch. This method will bypass the other speed windings and is not as power efficient.

I have a harbor breeze ceiling fan on a dimmer


You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.

Dimmer not working but the light does come on.


What kind of wall switch do you have? Is it a remote wall switch? You can't use a basic Fan/light control with a remote.

Minka aire concpet 1 ceiling fan issue


Ceiling fans have tiny "brains" that get fuddled when one tries to combine remote control and wall switches/pull chains. If you want to be able to use remote control, redo the installation omitting the other switches.

We want to use a 3 way-speed wall switch instead of using the remote control. Is this possible? If so, what three way switch do you recommend?


That is easy, yes there is no reason why you cannot convert this to a Three way switch. ANY Three Way switch that is rated for mains use will be OK. They are all much of a muchness, IE: All more or less the same. Go to your local electrical depot, and ask for a Three Way mains switch, wire it up, and you'll be good to go.a184221.gif
A very rough drawing of how to do it.

My new fan with light fixture is hooked up but it only works through the pull strings not from my wall dimmer. Can someone please tell me why and what do I need to do to have it work from the wall dimmer....


It depends if the fan and lights are ran for separate control. If only one power line is ran from the fan to the switch location than you are out of luck. You should install a switch instead of a dimmer because a fan is not designed to work with a dimmer. A dimmer works by rapidly turning the power on and off faster than our eyes can detect creating a dimming effect for lights. This is not good for your fan. The strength of the fan speed will be limited by the dimming/power output of the light dimmer.

Control fan/light separately, with only two wires


They are available at Home Depot and Lowes. Hunter makes a wall mounter dimmer that will control the lights and fan speed separately. There is a receiving unit that mounts above the fan to the house wires on one side and the others connect to the fan.

The two hots you mentioned should be a black one and a blue one. The blue is for the lights; the black the fan. Ground everything you can to boxes, etc, if the house is only a two wire system without a ground.

I believe that remote wall switch and receiver runs close to $40.

The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.


I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.
