Question about Emerson Fans Emerson SW90LA Control

Open Question

Emerson SW90 light and fan switch question

The light goes from dimmest to brightest as it goes up, but the fan goes from strongest to weakest as it goes up from 1 to 4. Is this the way it is supposed to work? Seems they should both work the same, not the opposite.

This was wired by licensed electrician who made other mistakes.

I have an emerson ceiling fan with a light AND emerson SWQSRR controller.I can't figure out how the SWQSRR controller could control the fan and light seperately by only using 1 yellow wire?


Because it's a wall remote. Remotes will work fan & light with one hot wire. You should have a receiver in the canopy of the fan.

On emerson casablanca ceiling fan, there is no voltage between blue and white wires for lighting kit power.


Check blue wire to bare ground.
Then check each wire to bare ground, with switch on and off.

Our four light Emerson fan has two lights (across from each other) that do not work. They appear to be connected by the same blue wire.


If you have a pull chain I would check that switch. If not check all your wiring and make sure everything is secure.

Ah.

A simple Capacitor based speed control. How many places do you have to put wires on your switch? You may have mis-wired the switch, or you have the wrong switch.

How it all works is... When you turn the fan to High, or position 1 on the switch (there's L 1 2 and 3) the power goes from 1, to the capacitor, but does not go through the capacitor, but instead goes through the second (probably gray) wire directly to the reversing switch in the switch housing. When you switch to medium (or 2) both 2 and 3 positions on the switch are supposed to be sending power through both capacitors inside of the black box. Basically, you have two capacitors, when you go to medium, both are wired in parallel to each other, but on low, only one is in the circuit. Basically, the switch you have, or have mis-wired, is putting only one capacitor in the circuit at the time on medium and low positions.

Also, do not worry, so long as you only mess with these 4 wires, you cannot blow anything up, However! When you disconnect power from the fan, BE SURE that the fan is "On" when you turn the power off to ensure the capacitor discharges as you can get a very very nasty shock from the bare wires.

Emerson CF4800 with SW375 receiver that does not turn on fan!


Please excuse me if you already have the answer, but I went thru the same thing and found that the actual receiver was broken. The receiver that is found in the top part of the fan itself. I was able to diagnose the problem because I have two of the same fans in the house and when I switched the receiver units, the broken fan started to work. Hope that helps.
