SOURCE: wiring ceiling fans to wall switch

Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

You need to change the tiny DIP switch settings so each fan is set up differently. (Note that each pair of remote transmitters--the one in the fan body, held in a bracket above the light kit when you drop that down; plus the one on the wall switch or in a hand-held remote, must be set with the same combination.)
Our Minka Aire Churchill model has 4 DIP switches; I have seen Casablancas with 5.

SOURCE: minka aire concept II ceiling fan bulb replacement

The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.

Newly installed Minka aire concept II ceiling fan is poorly lit. Installed in my son's bedroom and it's useless, dim.


probably not the reason for the dim light. It probably has more to do with the installation where you have wired the light before or after the fan so that power so the bulb is reduced by the resistance in the fan.
lights and fans are wired in parallel so that one doesn't affect the other
Might pay to talk with an electrician on the issue
There is a limit on the size of the bulb that can be used and a 100 watt halogen bulb will probably melt the surrounds and set fire to the fitting
get a desk lamp for his homework

Hardwired ceiling fan turned off by itself and stopped responding to remote control, but the light turns on/off.


I've had problems with Minka Aire also. You might need a new receiver. Call Minka @ 1-800-307-3267 and talk to someone in tech dept.. Should be a one year warranty on the receiver.

I think you have a mixed or a connected wire problem. It looks like your breaker has tripped, doesn't need to spark... :) to trip. Is everything the same voltage ? Are you sure there's power at the switch mentioned..
Don't take anything for granted, respect electricity..

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.

The light leg should be hooked to a power source. If you have a separate wire from a wall switch, that's where it should be hooked. Otherwise, you can hook it to the fan leg and operate the light from the switch on the fan.

The red and white should be hot all the time for the fan to run even when the light is not in use. The black and white wires are used for the switch on the wall to turn the light on. Hope this helps.

This may not apply. There could be an electrical problem. But if you installed the bulb with your hand, the oil on your skin can cause the buld to heat excessively and fail. I suggest you use the packaging or part of it when installing it, taking great care not to touch it.
