Not knowing what brand of fan and remote you have, this is a long shot, but I've run into remotes that self-program. For this to happen you need to disconnect the power to the fan, wait a few minutes, turn power back on. Then within a minute or so, hold down the fan stop button for a few seconds. Otherwise if you have an instruction manual, check for a similar procedure.

Hi I have had fitted a newlec extractor fan in my shower room.

It should have been fitted by an accredited electrician because it is an IP rated unit used in a wet environment and should have an earth wire fitted to it which normally is not with a light switch
depending on the electrical regulations for your area the earth wire could be run from the metal body of the unit to an earth wire connection in a power point (gpo outlet)
but a talk with an electrician would be the safe way to go.

New Hunter fan from Home Depot. Fan installed by professional electrician. When fan "ON" has GRINDING SOUND. HD will replace, but not cover cost to remove & reinstall of electrician. Can the fan b

Fans are not difficult to replace / install. The difficult part is the lifting and support part when connecting the wiring and securing the support in place. The main safety feature is to turn off the power at the circuit breaker or fuse panel, don't just use the wall switch.
If you can get two ladders in place and have someone hold the fan while you disconnect the support from the ceiling bracket and disconnect the wiring it is a very simple job.
Otherwise, you just have to take your time and make sure to follow the instructions and connect the house wires to the correct fan wires.
If you do not feel confident, then it is best to find an electrician or handyman who can do the job for you.

Before I did anything else I would try changing the code on the problem fan. Change the dip switches in the fan and in the remote controller unit to a different code. It is not impossible that a neighbor has the same code in their unit or a device in the area is operating off the same code. Probably the cheapest thing to try next.

After leaving my fan off all winter, the fan will not start. Last year an electrician was called and he came and merely turned the blades and it restarted. I have tried this to no avail.

It seems that the motor armature is burn .
If you can fix it by yourself , then dissemble the unit, remove the motor. Loosen the bolts running from end to end of the motor and with emery cloth, clean the small metal plates on the end of the armature. They should be bright copper color. If the armature is burnt, they will be dull brown. The other thing is to replace the brushes in the motor . I'm 80% sure that this is what the electrician did last year but you couldn't see that because you were absent . Call the electrician again and ask him to replace the motor if the solution above didn't work .

I have an existing ceiling fan with a three speed controller. The low speed setting was too high so I have engaged an electrician to install a variable speed controller, Clipsal 32E500F Series. The new...

some manufacturer already attached a variable speed controller when you purchased them, meaning the unit requires this control, but in your case when you purchased it, it does not have any, meaning they sell it to the market as ready to use, so why install additional control?

There might be an installation error during the assembly, so all you have to do is just interchange the wire connected to the control from LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH, it is a trial and error thing but it won't affect or damage your unit, maybe your high speed connection was connected to a low speed control, so just inter-change it. Remove the variable speed control

Fan and remote not working

If you haven't already done so, replace the remote's battery with a brand new one . Make sure the replacement battery is NEW AND UNUSED, AND WAS PURCHASED RECENTLY, SO IT IS FRESH. Make sure it is installed properly, making good electrical contact, and the proper polarity is observed. Was the remote dropped, sat on or stepped on? Was a liquid spilled on it? Did your pet chew on it? Are any of the buttons loose or stuck? If the remote seems ok, try removing 120 volt power from the fan by turning off the circuit breaker or fuse an your homes main electrical service box. Wait 30 seconds, then turn 120 volt power for the fan back on. This may reset the speed control in the fan unit. If it does not cure the problem, consult a professional electrician, or replace the fan, whichever is more cost-effective.

wait 30 seconds and turn 120

Chances are the wire nut came off the connection for the light unit. If you're handy, shut off the fan mechanism at the fan (pull chain until fan is off), then turn off the power at the breaker box, ensure the power is off at the light switch and proceed to unscrew the fixture from the mounting unit (attached to the ceiling).

Carefully support the fan unit with one hand ( there should be a silver grounding wire that will help support the unit - unless it wasn't installed properly in which case the unit will be heavy - try to balance on the ladder if it's tall enough). Look for the white and black wires - one will be for the fan unit, one for the light unit.

Check to see both are securely attached by wire nuts. If one is loose or has come apart, carefully re-twist the wires tight (turn to the right as this is the way the wire nut twists on so it will stay together when you replace the wire nut. If when you replace the wire nut the wires are still loose, replace the wire nut - they do get old and tired.

At this point I would turn on the power at the breaker box and turn on the switch for the fan on the wall. Then try the light unit - see if that fixed the problem. If it has, turn off power again, replace the unit the same way you took it down - if not, there is a problem in the internal wiring . . . check with warranty depot.

Hope this helps,
