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.

The remote for the ceiling fan has 4 switches inside the battery compartment- look there. I had the same problem, turns out that when I replaced the battery one of the switches was inverted by mistake. Now it looks like 1 and 2 on, 3 and 4 off - and everything works.

SOURCE: Accutek AOJ 1601R fan wouldn't start

hi there,

it always can fix,there are several factror to check,you should have a multi tester to use to check the might be on the switch,
cable or on the motor.
open the control box of the fan,there are set screw loosen this and you will see the connection of electrical connection of cable supply and the swicth.
set tester on rx1 check continuity of the cable plug supply,red rod of tester on plug take one wire,black test rod on the other end of cable plug.this other end of wire is on control box.see if pointer of tester move on to no.10 or 20ohms if move its good.try also on the other side of wire.if does not move replaced the wire.
if you can see a fuse check this,by tester
on rx1 attached red test rod on one end of fuse black rod on the other end,if move the pointer its good but if not,replace fuse,actually all fan motor have thermistor fuse inside the motor,it was mounted on the inner side of winding of
motor it look like a resistor or sometime a form of small square resistor has two terminals,to test this, red test rod on one terminal and black test rod on the other terminal if pointer of tester does not move replace thermistor.
to get the termistor fuse you should open
the motor,this is not easy job.but small pc. of motor will give you knowledge how to fix your small appliances.,on motor there are four lock in bolt,before you can pull out the motor disconnect the wiring from the switch cut this
by cutter plier leave a small color lead of wire
when you cut,allow you to remember the connection when putting back.when you dismantle the motor,loosen the four lock in bolt and pull out the winding on motor case
on winding cut the plastic strip,find the thermistor fuse,this was insulated,careful to cut small wire this are all terminal of motor
replace the thermistor if busted.
put back and try to run your fan again.
unplug your fan before doing this this should be done by technician,have anice day rate my fix thanks a lot.

My Accutek not blowing out the air from the fan what is wrong with my fan

There is an 'enter' side and a 'blower' side to each fan. Is it spinning the proper way?

My remote lights up when you press the button but it's not controlling my fan.

Controlling a ceiling fan/light using a wall switch causes the remote control to lose its memory. You will have to start all over at the beginning. Remove batteries from the remote, push all buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a cause, then reinstall batteries but do not push any button yet. Be sure all wall switches are off. Go to the power source for the fan/light (not the wall switch) and turn it off. Wait briefly, then turn on the power at the source again. Try remote operation. If successful, use only the remote to control operation. Forget about using the wall switches.

My Fanimation Islander FP320 stopped working, I've replaced the wall switch but fan won't spin and lights won't dim.

My ceiling light and stopped working

Hi there,  First of all, can you tell if there's power going to the light? Lets first make sure that it's not a power problem. You can check your circuit breaker in your main electrical panel. Now, when checking this - leave your light switch in the ON position. So when you're checking the circuit breakers, you can see from afar if the light/fan comes on. Now, you can also have a light switch problem too. Turn the switch on and off; and wiggle the toggle (lever) on the switch to make sure its tight. Next, get up on a ladder and make sure that your switches on the light itself are on the ON position. It most likely is, but you're just ruling things out. So, if you think there's power getting to the light - then turn the wall switch OFF. You can also turn off the circuit breaker as added protection. You would then need to take off the bottom of the light/fan to get to the wiring connections. If you have a little inductance tester, which when you put it up against the wires - a light, a beep, or both come on to let you know there's power. These little testers are invaluable. There very inexpensive, and they can save you plenty of headaches. If you can buy or borrow one, you would open the bottom of the light/fan - and make sure all your connections are tight and secure. I come across a lot of shabby splices were the wires aren't all the way in (secure) when its installed, and eventually with the vibration of the fan motor - the wires will work themselves loose. After checking the connections, clear yourself from the light/fan and turn the wall switch ON. Then go back up the ladder and wave your tester up against the wires to see if you have any power at the light. If you do, then you most likely have a switching problem at the light/fan.  To confirm this, you would turn OFF the wall switch again. Go back up the ladder and wave your tester to double check that there's NO power. Your next step would be to bypass the switch on the light/fan. You can do this by removing the switch and splicing (joining) the two wires together...or, you can locate each (only two) wire coming from the switch - and then splice (join) these two wires together. Now that you've bypassed this light/fan switch - get down from the ladder and turn ON the wall switch. If this is the problem, then the light/fan should work ALL together when your wall switch is in the ON position. If it works, then you'll have take that switch with you to your local Home Depot, Lowes, or hardware store to get this part. Its easier to take the switch with you and show the clerk at the store the part you need. They are common parts, so you should have no problem. Lets stop here for now. I believe you should find the problem by now. If not, please contact me again - and let me know what you have done, and what everything you did resulted in. I don't believe you'll go this far, but if so - then we'll proceed from there. Good Luck, and remember to turn the power OFF when you're working on the light/fan - and make sure your connections are secure when rewiring your connections back up. And then put everything back in order of how you took them off. I hope this works for you! Jim

Fan does not spin. when plug in and press on button nothing happen

Without knowing more details, i can give you a couple of ideas of what the problem may be.

1.Depending on the age, sometimes the rotor can get gunked up with dust and dirt, and cause the fan to not spin without a little help, i.e spinning the fan blades by hand. That is assuming the motor is still ok.

2.You might just have something simple like a faulty switch.

If you have more details i may be able to offer better advice. Hope this helps!

Fan not spinning

clean your fan motor. remove carefully part by part(your fan motor, the coil and the rod). remove all the dirt. put machine oil at the rod, front and the back part. try to spin it. oil it and spin, do it again and again until the rod spin smoothly. and then put back those part as before you 'open' the fan. but remember, do not do this while your fan plug is still plugged to the power source. or you will be dead instantly. for your safety, you know. so be careful. last step, try it! :) i hope this will help you in fixing the fan.

Accutek stand fan just hums, won't turn

That means the bearings are dry and have locked. Simply open the motor cover by removing the screw and pull the oscillation knob by rocking it side by side gently to have free access to the motor.

MAKE SURE THE FAN IS UNPLUG FIRST. Use cream type grease on both ends of the shaft. After applying the grease rotate the blades until they're freely and you feel the blades have released.

Place the motor cover back and the oscillation knob and plug-in the fan. Leave it on HIGH for 10-minutes or more to make the rotor loose with the grease.
