    I guess I must have a different fan. I do have the one that has the reverse on it but this remote doesn't. I wonder if it is wired backwards. What do you think?

1.) this model uses a remote control controller to operate its functions
2.) the reversing is done via that remote.
3.) the link is wireless
4.) do you have the remote?

    no the wiring is internal to the unit no way that could be wrong it is possable however that the remote controller push **** or remote itself is bad.

    1.) take the remote down to a loal home improvement store and ask them if they have any fans on display. Try your remote on that to see if it works. If it does then the receiver in the unit is bad. I believe that the fan unit has a replaceable module that pluggs in...

I have a sidewinder model 312 342 in which we only use the hand remote. The wal mount remote was not installed. The hand remote does not have the feature to reverse the blades. is there another remote...


The short answer is no.
Since it is not a function of the fan's original remote control buying any remote that has this (as a custom feature) will never work with your fan. . . Sorry

Explanation:

Since you usually only change the rotation twice a year this is accomplished by a switch on the fan itself.
During winter heating, to help move warm air that is trapped on the ceiling, blades should turn 'forward' in a clockwise motion. This movement will push up the air and pull the warm trapped air down the sides of the room improving heat distribution.

During hot summer weather, to help produce a comfortable breeze or 'windchill' that cools the skin, blades should rotate in a 'reverse' counter-clockwise motion. The air movement has the same comfortable effect as when you fan yourself with a magazine to get relief from hot, stifling air.

Hope this helps,

Central air conditoner outside unit


Well, the answer is yes. I have seen a bad capacitor cause a fan motor to run backwards. BUT..... After replacing the capacitor and WIRING it up the right way, everything should be fine. A lot of aftermarket condenser fan motors are reversible, so it can run counter-clockwise (CCW) or clock-wise (CW). However, most factory fan motors come one directional and on your specific unit, the air should always push out of the top. Running the unit with the fan going backwards will actually some-what do it's job, but damage other components like the compressor because it runs at higher operating pressures than what it is designed for.

Have someone else look at it! That's going to be the best advice I can give you. If they can prove that a capacitor caused the motor to permanently run backwards..... I want to know! Hope this helps and good luck with your unit.

Fan on outside unit spins counter clockwise pulling air in instead of forcefully blowing air out as it should. This fan doesnot look reversible, could this be the wrong fan or is there a way to reverse it?...


air should be coming out of the top. It will work either way. If your fan is reversible it will have a sticker on the side explaining how to reverse it and it will have exttra wires plugged into each other right at the motor. good luck

Minka Aire Como F603 - Light bulb burned out


I found the Manual to the F603 in pdf format at: http://minkagroup.net/Admin/UploadFiles/F603-English.pdf It describes how to put bulbs in so it was simply a matter of reversing the instructions to get the old ones out. However, it is not that easy to get the bottom section off so one has to be careful or you will twist the whole unit instead of just the bottom part..... I think what you did was push up too hard and then turn the whole unit. Try pushing up firmly but at the same time hold some fingers (or have someone help in this) on top of the bowl above the fan blades and then twist counterclockwise an inch or two and the bottom part will release (don't let it fall). Then you have easy access to the bulbs. Good luck.

Fan won't reverse to counter clockwise


I had a hampton bay fan that absolutely did not have a revers switch on the fan anywhere! MOST fans bought today will reverse. I was not about to give up. I scoured the net for an answer and could not find anything to help. I did however find a comment somewhere that said it could be done internally. After about six months I decided to search again (now). Nothing... so I started playing with the remote and the wall switch and Shazaam! I figured it out on my hampton bay fan. Turn the fan on high... Turn the wall switch off.... wait until the fan is pretty slow in rotation... hold the HI button on the remote.... Turn the switch back on. IT Worked for me! Hope this helps someone. SparqMark

I have found the right solution to the fan not working in the right direction. the problem is that is a pcs of trash, i ripped mine off the ceiling and tossed it out the window and guess what it, it flew...


Did you hit the reverse direction switch located on the upper fan body. Upward direction is for winter as it blows up toward the ceiling pushing rising heat out towards walls and down to floor. Downward direction sucks heat off ceiling (summer months) and pushes cooler air that is on the ground toward the ceiling, thus giving a cooler airflow. You do know that there is a little black switch up there, right?
