Question about Hampton Bay 40106 Minute II Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

I saw a minuet II with a remote at my friend's house. My friend said he is not the one who bought it. I want one in my small kitchen with a remote. I can't find one with the remote at any websites. I look at about 20 websites and I can't find 1 with a remote. I looked at the sticker on top of that motor, and it said 40106. I looked that at a website and it said "remote: no". I looked at the review and none of them have to do anything with the remote. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Going to the company and they said they do not do such , That means it might be a universal remote that coincidentally worked with it.

    I bought minuet II from home depot and I also bought remote control kit. I installed it with the remote, and when I tested the fan, There are 2 problems. Wobbling and making clicking noise, and flickering CFL bulbs. I need help with these.

    Many problem issues associated with Ceiling Fans can be attributed to
    the installation, and are easily corrected. Below is a general overview
    of the more common things missed, or
    done improperly when installing a Ceiling Fan. If you have more
    specific questions about the operation of any ceiling fan. Please

    Noise

    Motor size is the key to quality. Over time,
    it is not uncommon for smaller motors to develop sounds that are
    unrepairable. Below are a few tips that may help determine if that is
    the case.
    Switching: The use of a dimmer or
    rheostat wall control on the motor will cause any ceiling fan to "Hum".
    Ceiling Fan motors need to be run from a switch that has set speeds. SW95
    or SW90
    are switches that will work with most brands.
    Mounting:
    Anything not tightened properly may result in amplifying any sounds the
    ceiling fan might make. Make sure all screws and light fixture glass
    are tight.


    Wobble
    It
    is considered "Normal" to have a small bit of motion in any Ceiling Fan
    running on high speed. Blade balancing kits included with most ceiling
    fans, can reduce or eliminate this type of motion. Below are a few tips
    if the ceiling fan wobbles excessively. The easiest test for loose or
    poor mounting; Give the bottom of the
    ceiling fan a light push with your finger. On stem mount fans it should
    come back to center and stop. If the fan keeps moving, follow these tips
    for excessive motion.
    Mounting: The electrical box
    in the ceiling needs to be metal, and securely mounted to a joist or
    brace kit. The mounting bracket from the ceiling fan must be tight to
    the electrical box.
    Down rod or Stem: On ceiling
    fans with a down rod or stem. Make sure the groove on the ball at the
    top of the stem is aligned with the notch on the mounting bracket. There
    are usually multiple set screws to tighten at the ball and where the
    stem mounts into the top of the ceiling fan.
    Blades:
    Ceiling Fan blades are matched sets, weighted within a gram of each
    other. Loose or warped blades can be a cause of wobble. Make sure all
    screws holding the blades to the irons, and the blade assembly to the
    motor a tightened properly. To determine if you have a warped blade or
    bent blade iron: Use a ruler to measure from the tip of the blade to the
    ceiling. Let the blades pass by the ruler to see if one or more is
    higher or lower than the rest. There can be a slight difference in
    height that will not cause any wobble issues.

    Operation
    Ceiling
    Fans that stop working, or fail to operate when first installed may
    need check a few basic things first.
    Wiring: Make
    sure there is power to the ceiling fan and the wall switch is in the
    "On" position. Follow the wiring instructions included with the fan and
    double check connections.
    Switch housing: The
    switch housing is the bottom portion of the ceiling fan where the light
    is attached. Move reverse switch to one side or the other (stuck in the
    middle makes fan inoperable). Make sure any plug connections are
    properly inserted. Check either side of plug connections for any wires
    that are loose or pushed out of the plug.
    Wall Switch:
    When using a wall switch make sure the pull chain on the motor is set
    to the highest speed.
    Smell or Odor: Ceiling fans
    that give off a bad smell, typically need a new capacitor. Call us for
    identification
    Remote systems: Make sure the
    receiver and transmitter are set to the same frequency, and wired
    according to the instructions.

    I fixed the wobble, and I still need help with flickering.

    How to Fix Flickering Lights




    We've all experienced it. The lights flicker for no apparent reason,
    sending the kids into tales of mysterious ghosts lurking in the corners
    of the house. Chances are there is a very logical explanation for
    lights that flicker on occasion. So before you call in the ghost hunters
    or fork out the money for an electrician, there are a few simple things
    you can check on your own to determine the cause of flickering lights.

    Check the lightbulbs to be sure they are not
    loose in the socket. A loose lightbulb will light intermittently,
    causing lights to flicker off and on at times. Tighten the bulb to see
    if that takes care of the problem. Check that you are using the proper
    size bulb for the socket. Some lamps require specific bulbs.








  • Step 2

    Change the bulb if the problem persists. Occasionally, a bulb
    will flicker before it goes out completely. The problem may simply be a
    bulb that is about to burn out.






  • Step 3

    Inspect the electrical cord carefully. Unplug the lamp and
    check to see if the plug is loose. A faulty plug will make intermittent
    contact with the electrical supply and cause flickering lights. Check
    for any breaks or worn areas on the cord. Replace the lamp or have
    someone with experience in working with electrical cords replace the
    cord for you. Never attempt to replace cords on your own if you are not
    sure of the proper procedure and safety precautions.






  • Step 4

    Examine the outlet itself. Plug another appliance into the
    same outlet to see if it functions properly. A hair dryer or CD player
    is a good choice, as it is easy to determine if it is functioning
    properly. If the outlet is faulty, you will need to call an electrician
    to fix it.






  • Step 5

    Observe other appliances
    in the home to see if they are receiving full power at the time the
    lights are flickering. A problem with the electrical supply to the home
    will likely cause all electrical appliances to receive intermittent
    power. Depending on your area, it is common to notice brief
    interruptions in the electrical supply on windy or stormy days.






  • Step 6

    Call an electrician if you are unable to determine the cause
    of the flickering lights. There may be a problem with the wiring in the
    home that requires the services of a certified electrician. Be specific
    when describing the problem, providing the electrician with the
    information he needs to troubleshoot your difficulties.

AudioLogic DVD-108 - help setting up component cables (no picture)


This may not be a solution, but is a good start. I recently bought a house with the theater system installed, but no remote. Had similiar problems with some functions on Universal remote. Did a google search and got the remote for my system and presto! I did a google on the DVD-108 and saw a AudioLogic remote(similiar, Originals are no longer available), and saw that there is a "setup" button as well as others that may select inputs. This may not be a solution, but would be a good start. Worked for me!
