    It wasn't like any of the switches on the web site you sent me. Yes it has a light fixture on it. The switch looks like this: I 8 I
    (I) fan slide switch/ (8) wall switch for light/ (I) light dimmer slide switch
    Does that make sense?

    I tried your latest suggestion and that didn't work either. I appreciate your continued suggestions.

I have looked into this for the last 45-60 minutes and am very frustrated because I could not locate an owner's manual for this fan. Sooooo, here is my suggestion. If you have a slide switch on the wall, the reverse switch for the fan is mounted on the fan motor, at least in most fans I have worked on. That would be a slide switch on the outside of the motor housing, easily(?) accessible from the outside without taking the fan apart.
You should be able to reverse the direction of the fan by switching the position of this switch.
I am going to continue looking for information on this, but as I said, I am a bit frustrated with it. However, I DO want to provide you with an answer I am sure of.

    There is no switch on fan itself. I looked for that first.

    Okay, I finally got through on the phone to the Home Depot customer service group.
    They gave me the answer about the slide switch as well. When I told them "I" could not find a switch they (he) answered, "There has to be one, all fans have them." Well, I know this is not true as my fan has a light switch and a fan switch and the way I reverse my fan is to press both the light switch and fan switch at the same time.
    I am going to send you a URL with fan control switches on it. Please find yours and let me know which one it is.

    Please go to this URL and identify the fan control switch you have and let me know which one it is.

    Also, does your fan unit have a light fixture on it?

  • pwillitz Oct 10, 2010

    After spending well in excess of an hour trying to help you solve the problem and still willing to go forward with my efforts, your response is very disappointing.
    Have a nice day.

  • pwillitz Oct 11, 2010

    Can't visualize it for some reason. The unit I have at home changes direction by pressing both the light switch and the fan switch at the same time. Is that a possibility for your controller?

Cannot find reverse switch


Are you trying to get the fan to turn opposite direction ? If so there's a small black switch located above the light on the fan itself. It is a slide switch with the fan off slide that switch turn on the fan and direction will change.

The key seems to be that you changed wiring in the ceiling box.

I suggest you make a drawing of the wires before and after. Track the route that the Hot wire takes.

The key question is this: Does Hot wire from breaker box arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in wall box first?

I think Hot from breaker arrives in wall box first. And from there Hot wire goes to ceiling box ... and from ceiling box the hot wire goes to other plugs in room. If this is true, you will be one wire short for installing fan control switch.

I always make a drawing of existing wires before starting, so I can put it back the way it was. It sounds like you got a good handle on which wire goes where.

We used to solve the one-wire-short problem by making a simple project bigger. Figure out which direction ceiling joist run. See if you can slide fish line from fan ceiling box over to wall. If that works. Over at the wall, chop small hole in ceiling so you can feed wire up to fish line. Pull wire over to ceiling box. Next, staple other end of wire along ceiling over to location above wall box. Chop another small hole so you can feed wire down to wall box. And then install beautiful crown molding to hide the mess, and paint the room so you need new furniture.

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

My ceiling fan has no reverse switch, how do i change the direction


My fan does not have a reverse switch for sure so I scoured the net and got no real answer. I did come accross a comment that said that it worked internally at the remote box in ceiling. Here is how I finally figured it out after about 6 months of searching. Put the fan on high, Turn wall switch OFF, Hold the HI button on remote, Turn switch back on. IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sparq

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.

New Hampton Bay Ceiling fan - runs only in clockwise direction


By using the "switch" to change direction I assume you mean the small slide switch on the side of the fan housing. What you have done is correct and would not affect this switch. The switch is probably bad and you need to return the fan. Suggestion: if the switch is on the housing of the light kit and the light kit connects to the fan with a plug, you are in luck. Go get another fan, swap the light kits and return the fan. Saves you a lot of work. Good luck!

Hampton Bay ceiling fan - will not reverse


It sounds like the direction switch has a broken connection on the "reverse" side.  Should be an easy fix (but you might need a soldering iron).

Mika aire remote fan


Not sure if this addresses your problem or not, but with my Minka Aire ceiling fans, the fan has to be moving in order to change the fan direction. Turn the fan on (any speed works), then push the reverse button. The fan will speed up to max, then you'll hear the gears switching. The fan will slow to a stop, change directions and get back up to speed in the new direction.

Wall switch


I had this same problem (sort of) - my daughter lost the remote to our fan and it would not work from the wall switch. What you have to do is go up to where your fan is connected to the ceiling, slide the canopy down, and remove the remote transmitter. Then just rewire the fan normally - white to white, black and blue to black, and the ground wires together. Turn on the power and your fan light should work with the wall switch. You will have to pull the cord for the fan to work.
