Surely this is the fault in the controller circuit. possibble that the thyristor which is the switch and voltage regulator is not working correct. The bias to the thyristor is not sufficient to keep it in correct mode. Can be the thyristor itself or the bias circuit.

It doesn't turn on, it turns on for half a second then turns right back off. I don't think the plug it the original plug. (I received this vacuum as a hand-me-down)


I suggest a trip to an appliance centre to have the plug checked out as dimming house lights indicates a hugh short probably in the plug or lead

The light on a fan is flickering. It doesn't appear to be the light bulbs. This fan has a remote control and it controls the fan OK and turns the light on and off but it flickers. What could be...


Try changing or testing the batteries in the remote or take the remote out of the fans range. See if this stops the flickering. It can also be the individual bulb. Sometimes the monofillament wires become loosened. It won't hurt the fan to use a broken bulb but it will shorten the life of the bulb. They do get the daylights shook out of them! If all the bulbs flicker it can be the twist connects. These are located under the ceiling plate cover. To check, shut off the fan or turn off the braker switch to make sure you don't get a shock (but I really doubt it). Remove the face plate ceiling screws to expose the wiring. There should be a black and a red cap that holds wires together. Black is ground red is power. One at a time hold the wires of the black cap with one hand and give the cap a gentle clockwise twist with your other hand to see if they need tightening. Repeat with the other colored cap. Push the wires back up inside the housing if needed and replace the cover.
These are the simpelist things to try before calling an expert. I hope this helps?

My hunter ceiling fan is not working and according to hunter technical support, I need to replace the remote control receiver (part # 8511204000) at a cost of 50.00 plus shipping.is there a way to by-pass...


If the product did not come with a manual control on it then yes you will have to use the remote. However, if the replacement remote will cost nearly as much as the ceiling fan itself you could simply purchase a new fan.

I have a model 484 709 UPC 792145330547 The fan/light is close to ceiling (instalation). Their is supposed to be an "o" ring to remove the fan/light from the celling. I cannot find it!!! ...


Remove the cowl at the ceiling by removing the screws in the cowl (very close to the ceiling). Use caution in removing them as the weight of the fan may be carried by these screws. Depending on the style, though, the weight may be borne by supports beneath the cowl. Either way, this will get you access to the wiring, allowing you to change out/remove the fan. If the fan and cowl are together, and close to the ceiling, there is usually a method of hanging the assembly while the wiring connections are made during installation. Look for a hook that the screw hole will go over, supporting the fan.

Best regards,

I have a ceiling fan with 3 lights. We do not use the remote control and did not install it. The lights stopped going on today. The fan works, but the lights do not. I have tried changing bulbs, but...


Sounds like a loose wire. If you turn the lights on via a wall switch or a pull chain, I would start where you hooked the wire for the lights to the house electricity, most likely where the fan meets the ceiling. Pull the "bell" part of the fan down that covers the ceiling box and see if there is a loose wire inside. There should be a plastic cap called a wire nut that covers the wire connection. Make sure it is secure and if possible, put some electrical tape around it. Please let me know if you have questions.

If this is a new product and it is defective, take it back to Lowe's and insist on a replacement, talk to the manager if you have to. This site will only advise you on how to fix it.
