78127 remote switch

I am trying to install a 78127 industrial fan with remote swith. The switch has only two wire connections, in and out. I assume this is in and out power and wired the ground and zero through. The fan works, but I cannot reverse it's direction

    Thanks for trying guys. I found out in the meantime, this particular fan may have a switch that indicates it being reversible, but according to Westinghouse, it is not.
    Problem solved.

I a not familur with that particular model but:
1) the switch is power in/out
2) the fan works so the switch works
3)leave the switch on and only control the fan w/ remote
4) stop fan. reverse .start fan. light on/ light off
depends how you hooked it up/ what the switch really does. usually the fan is seperate from the light and the light is powered with the switch.
give us feed back :)

With a switch it is always the hot wire (black or red one) that goes through it. If it doesn't work, it may be a faulty switch. They make everything in China now, after all.

You need to check what sort of motor it is. Some motors will not go the other way around.

Your switch has 2 wires, and 2 brass screws, and new switch will have same.
Connect either wire to new switch.
Connect bare ground wire to green screw.
Turn power off, remove screws that hold switch into box, pull out switch, take photo of wiring, install new switch.
If wires are pushed into back of switch, then use small screwdriver and push into slot to release wire.

Hello Brother,
Installation:
Hang your ceiling fan on the Quick Connect fan bracket and wire the ceiling fan according to the manufacturer's instructions. The three wires coming from your ceiling should match the three wires coming from your ceiling fan: black (positive or hot), white (neutral or negative) and green (ground wire).


Use the high, medium and low keys on the remote to adjust the Hampton Bay fan speed, then use the light key to dim the light and the off key to turn off the fan.


For REMOTE CONTROL FANS you cannot use with any variable speed or slide wall switches. The remote control function must be used with on & off switch outlets only.

A regular dimmer switch will not do what you want.  A variable speed switch similar to a dimmer but made specifically to control motor loads may do what you want.  I think it would have to be installed after the 5-speed controller because the reduced voltage may cause problems for that controller.  Maybe you should just replace the controller with a the variable speed switch.

Re: wiring the FV-08VKS1


The black and white in the fan box are the main power and neutral for normal (low speed) of the fan. The two reds are the signal wires. It is basically a switch loop. You will actually need a total of 4 conductors (plus a ground) in order to run the high and low speed of the fan. The four conductors consist of 1) power from one switch to power up the fan, 2) neutral, 3) signal going to second switch, 4) signal going back to fan from second switch in order to run high speed. Without four conductors you can still run the high speed only by tying the two red wires in the fan together. This would be like always having the second swith in the on position. Hope this helps.

Electrical fan connection


Firstly, yes the fused spur should be earthed. You should wire from the fused spur to the fan L,N & E.

Your light switch should be in line on your light live supply wire.

If you wish to use the light switch to turn on the light and fan at the same time you should also run a live switch wire to the fan L1.

This should FixYa.

How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.


If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
