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

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...

the electronic board of your fan must be check.there are triac transistors that switch the motor to it variable speed check the triac and replace it if you find it faulty.there 3 triac found on it these rae the switches of 3 speeds you can compare the resistance reading of all of the 3 triacs to determine which triac is faulty...good luck.
