Question about Dryers
We purchased a Hampton Bay Midili 44 in ceiling fan and the instructions to install the remote receiver are not very clear. We are finding that the receiver is not fitting how the instructions say because either the copper wires are in the way when we try to place the receiver or the receiver is in the way when we try to hang the fan. Is there a way to get a better explanation or maybe a resolution to our problem?Or is there a way to get the fan to work without the receiver? We initially tried leaving it out but the breaker kept tripping.
I had the same problem. Instruction manual is awful. Doesn't mention anything about how to fit the huge yellow receiver either into (a) the mounting bracket or in (the canopy.
After numerous meltdowns, I finally figured it out. Instead of running the live wires through the center of the mounting bracket, run them on the side. The mount bracket to ceiling. If you try to run them through center, you will probably run out of room, and the Receiver will not fit. Once mounted, drop the pin into the mount and turn it until it locks into position.
Next, slide the Receiver in the tight space at top the pin, and just below top of mounting bracket. It will *barely* fit. Then connect all your wires with the wire nuts. Wrap in electrical tape just to be extra careful.
I could *not* get my wires to push up into the ceiling box because the Receiver was blocking the entrance. So I tucked them on the sides, and then lifted the canopy up and finished the installation. All the wires were hidden inside the canopy.
Hope that helps. And hope you haven't lost your mind yet.
God forbid they explain how to instal the receiver, or include a battery.
Hampton Bay = Idiots.
