Question about Minka -Aire Brushed Nickel Remote Control Fan MIA F518-BN

2 Answers

Minka Aire Fan will not reverse.

The only way to reverse the fan is with the remote. It slows as though it is about to reverse and then speed up with out reversing, then slows again to the low speed it was set in.

My fan is a concept II and it had the same behavior. I called Minka Aire support about this - they said it was either the reverse module or the receiver. They sent me both no charge! I replaced them and now my fan reverses. i am not an electrician, but the replacement was fairly easy. Just made sure to disconnect 1 wire at a time, connect it to the new wire, etc until I was done. Minka Aire support said they would walk me through it on the phone but I didn't need them to.

Me me does the same thing, if I press and hold the reverse it will slow the blades like its reversing but then it speeds right back up.

What I've found is that as it starts to slow I have to press the reverse button slowly and firmly 2 or 3 more times and I can usually hear the "switch" and then the blades will actually reverse and be set...

Frustrating as it isn't what the instructions say to do

I found that the minka website has the installation manuals online.
www.minkagroup.net/http://www.minkagroup.net/minkaairemanuals.asp The glass cover on a Concept I fans turns counterclockwise. I had to use rubber gloves to get a good grip on the light cover.

Minka fan are life time warrantied, have you tried contacting customer service... Minka fans motors have a very simply design... uninstall the fan... try balancing the fan on a table or some where that allows you to remove the shell that covers the main body of the fan... Carefully (someone that is very familiar with the electrical components.) soft wire the fan allowing you to see the motor as the blades turn... You will then see what is making the scraping noise... I may have some extra fan parts that you can easily replace... If you like to write me at payitforwardx2 @ gmail . com I am willing to try to further assist you...

Minka Aire model f603 reverse switch?


Not sure what model of fan or manufacture you have. Says Hunter 52" & Minka aire F603. If it's the Minka , Then push the button on the lower part of the remote (6 o'clock). If that doesn't work then you might need a new receiver.

Mika aire remote fan


Not sure if this addresses your problem or not, but with my Minka Aire ceiling fans, the fan has to be moving in order to change the fan direction. Turn the fan on (any speed works), then push the reverse button. The fan will speed up to max, then you'll hear the gears switching. The fan will slow to a stop, change directions and get back up to speed in the new direction.
