Outdoor outlet Our outside oulet which our minimal christmas lights are plugged into, stopped working.  I tried to reset all of the breakers, and there is no BFI button that appears to control it.  The house is about a year and a half old.  Any ideas before I call in a pro?  Husband is going to be home for just 13 days for Christrmas before returning to Bagdad, and I really want the lights on to greet him when he gets home.

Re: Outdoor outlet

If this is an outdoor outlet and was built a little over a year ago it will most likely have a GFI (ground fault interrupter). There are two push buttons right on your outlet. By pushing one of them it should reset it

good luck-------------tomtaso

How can I turn off the lights on a ceiling fan?

Try to find the breaker that controls power going to that fan/light, turn the breaker off, wait 5-10 minutes, then return breaker to the on position, doing so 'may' be able to reset the control board inside the fan itself. If this has no success, the lighting control board is malfunctioning, if still under warranty, you have options outside of replacing the complete fixture.

Outlet and ceiling fan stopped working

If it's not the breaker then I would call an electrician.

Where is the fuse on a honeywell quiteset hy-108

KAZ Inc. has franchised the use of Honeywell's company name to manufacture/market this KAZ OEM HY-108 Tower Fan. The small 2.5A fuse you are looking for is located inside the 2-Prong Electrical Outlet Plug. This tiny 2.5A Fuse can be hard to find as a replacement in retail Hardware Stores, but see if you have an old LONG string of indoor/outdoor Christmas Lights... some of these Christmas Lights Strings may have the correct 2.5A Fuse you need. IMHO, it's strange that KAZ Inc. did not put instructions in the Honeywell HY-108 Owner's Manual where the Fuse is located!

My ceiling fan suddenly stopped working. It has a remote and 2 pull chains, and neither the light or the fan are working. Only button i see on side of fan is a slide button that controls direction of...

Did you notice if there was anything else not working in the house? If so, most likely a breaker tripped. If it did, then there is a problem with the circuit. Unplug everything on this circuit and try resetting the breaker. If it still has problems, call in a licensed electrician to troubleshoot the problem.
Did anyone work on anything prior to this event? May be a loose connection. turn off ALL the power in the electrical panel before you work on the fan because you have no idea which breaker (or fuse) operates this unit. Check all the connections in the fan. If the connections are good then we need to stop here because more details would be needed.

Plugged in my fan, but it does not work. Is there a fuse that may have burned out?

First, is there power at the outlet? If so, try another outlet. There's a reason for this, but I'm trying to keep this simple. Now, let's say that the outlet isn't working, then check and see if there's a switch operating this outlet. If so, then turn it on, and you should have the outlet working again, along with the fan. In addition to this, also check your circuit breaker to make sure it hasn't been tripped. Also, it's a stretch - but if there's no power at the outlet, you could have a tripped GFI breaker (normally in your bathroom) that is wired through your rooms for added grounding protection. Okay, you've done all of the above - and still nothing. With the fan unplugged, take apart the fan and see if all the connections are good. If so, your fan motor could be bad. Its at this time if you see if there's a fuse in there. I'm not sure, but you'll see a fuse holder in the housing when you take it apart. But I'm not sure if they have a fuse with this fan. Also, there could be a reset button, but again, with this model, I'm not sure. But being an electrician, I usually find a lot of problems with fans being something other than the fan itself. This is why I check the other factors first. It takes a few minutes, and easy to work with before having to take apart the fan. Good Luck to you, and I hope this helps you. Feel free to contact me again if you have any further questions. Jim

Ceiling fan stopped working after power spike blew the breaker. I reset the breaker and all else in the room came on but not fan. Does it have an internal reset?

If you own a Hunter Original, there is no reset button, but MANY people that have a remote control added (includng me) have , once power has been restored, found that the chain was pulled by someone and it got into the off position, rather than the slow, medium or high setting. With the circuit hot, pull the chain one more time and try to turn on your fan with the remote again.
Hope this helps.
