The switch or pull string switch is bad inside the housing.
Try to find a replacement, if they sell the part, you're in luck.

Good luck.

Best choice to make in changing a capacitor


mcdevito75 here, It"s best ti stick with theh factory 5 microarad capacitor. Also see if the speed of this fan picks up when the other is off, they may both be on the same home circuit.

Hampton bay ceiling fan stopped lights work


you can test the light switch by temporarily hooking up the light bulb to where the fan normally goes ....the bulb will only work on the highest speed setting but can prove if the switch is bad or not . turn power off before woking in there ... if you know someone with a volt meter then they could quickly test the switch for you .. they can also test the motor for continuity .. .. most of the time the trouble is simply bad connections inside the wire nuts ... like insulation not skinned properly or wire not in the wire nut properly ..you can remove and inspect each connection (power off of course) ... sometimes there is a seperate power line for the fan and light ... so they can be independently controlled externally ... thats not needed when the pull chains are the only off on method ...

Ceiling fan runs slow on highest setting. Or not a all on lower settings. Motor hums so it is try ing to work.


Sounds like something is binding. If you have full voltage on the fan and you can't find the source of what is binding, you will have to replace it.

I have a ceiling fan with remote, remote will not turn fan on high, how can i fix this


The fan probably has manual pullcord switches - one for the light and the other for fan on/off/speed. The fan control pullcord needs to be at maximum setting.

Switch the fan on using the remote. Then set it to high using remote.

Now use the pullcord switch (probably cycles through off, low, medium, high, off with each pull). Set it at its fastest speed, and leave it there.

You should now be able to select highest speed from the remote.

Happy to try to help more if that does not work.

Ceiling fan does not blow air


I would guess that the blades are on upside down. Ceiling fans are not supposed to work the same as desk fans though. The idea is not to create a strong flow of air but to create a "cooling breeze" by speeding the convection currents. They work better when they are running slowly (like you see in the old movies)

Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I


I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.

Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch


Hello,

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

Regards,
Worldvet
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.
