Question about Monte Carlo Dryers

Expensive Monte Carlo ceiling fan turns on & off by itself

We bought this fan from our daughter in law who worked for a very nice lighting place in Denver. It never gave us a problem till this past year. The light turned on in the middle of the night, by itself on the fan was on high. I discovered this when we got up the next morning. Rather spooky! I pulled the light chain to turn the light off, even though the wireless remote (which isn't connected to anything in the house except being battery operated) can turn it on and off. I removed the battery from the wireless remote and just now, the fan turned itself on. Last night it would turn itself on and off every few minutes. Is there a signal from something inside the house that's causing this? What can I do to keep it from turning itself on and off by itself?

All good suggestions including the fact that it is remote operated and as such can be operated by any remote within 100 yards of the house
all remotes operate on a narrow band width so it is possible that a neighbour is affecting your fan light by simply changing channels

SOURCE: The pull chain for the light on my Monte Carlo

Well, you can take it down and replace the switch. Most decent hardware stores have generic internal switches. You could unscrew the bulb a little every time you want it off.
You could mount a wall switch for the unit and live with the fan and light always being on at the same time.
The pull-switch is not too difficult to replace, just seems scary. disconnect the unit from all power and do the work at the table.
Keep all fasteners in order of removal, and make notes or label parts with tape as you disassemble. Take a picture of the switch when you get it open and show it to the person at the store. Bring home the new switch and swap it in one wire at a time.
Reassemble, remount, and sew on your DIY achievement patch:) Farmerbear at

SOURCE: Where could I buy the

If you go to Monte carlo's website,, and in the upper right hand side of the screen there is a search bar. If you search for your model number you will realize that they discontinued that model of fan. They won't have a motor for a discontinued fan unless they use the same motor for another model fan (not likely), but I took the liberty to call and find out for sure. The answer is no, they are discontinued. Sorry, but looks like you need a new fan.

I have a wd60c9 it makes a noise to come on then the yellow light started blinking with no display or sound and brand new light bulb tv sat dormat in spare room unplugged for about 6 mounths

The yellow blinking light is telling you that either your Lamp is not in properly, or that your lamp door is not closed properly.

Take the lamp out and carefully slide it back into place - you will feel it when it is in right. Then place the lamp door back in it's spot. Make sure that it is screwd in all the way.

Is it illegal for two people to live together if they are both on probation? me and my fiance have been together for 3 years and we have both been on probation for close to a year and we are on probation...

your probation officer is telling you the truth , can you possibly try and live with a relative or friend till your term of probation ends , if not you may well be in breach of it and you would be taken back to court and face a possible jail sentance for breaching it with your daughter ending up in care and you having little or no visits from her .
its not about fair ........sorry

150000 1974 national gas forced air furnance does the fan come on the same time the gas comes on. ...

not familiar with that particular model but on virtually every type and style of furnace i have worked on in the last 21 years. the fan is delayed. usually the burner lights then 3 to 5 minutes later after the heat exchanger has gotten nice and hot the fan comes on and blows nice and hot air. on old furnaces there was and is a switch usually on the upper right side of the furnace bulkhead that has a spring like device that heats up and rotates till it makes a set of contacts that turn the fan on. if it gets to hot the set of contacts breaks the power to the gas valve and shuts down the burner. as the furnace cools down on shut off there is a third set of contacts that open to turn off the fan so you don't get a draft. sometimes the stat can be wired up wrong, and it will bring the fan on right away ,and air will be cool and drafty till furnace catches up.
