Sound like the switch is dirty Inside. If you can find a replacement switch for a couple of dollers, and can replace this yourself, you will be fine. Other wise New Fans are saffer, as yours may be damaged due to trying to start with all the dirt in it.

I bought a AlohaBreeze Pedestal fan from yard sale, been told that it works fine. It did worked fine for sometime. Since it was too dirty, I tried opening it & cleaned it. Works fine for sometime but when switched off for a while & on it, I can just hear the motor sound but the blade doesn't move. If I open it & adjust the knobs, works out for sometime. Everything inside parts seem to be fine. Can anyone suggestion some solution that could make work fine thru'out.

Need 115 or 230 volt wiring diagram

Perhaps you do... but you will need to FIRST share more information... certainly to me.

I have been doing electricity professionally for over 50 years... exotic large scale industrial... and small time home and EVERYTHING in between)... Loved every bit of it.

However... there are CERTAIN & appropriate codes... and a little information in lieu of ALL the NECESSARY information can be quite deadly... for reals!

When the Nutone Heater-Vent-Lite first came out... I figured an elegant solution to keep the existing lights... (utilizing two hot wires + one neutral + one ground (14 gauge, 15 anp 3way with ground)).

Yes it can be done... but if you want a serious answer... you will have to clearly state what fan... model and application... and I might entertain your problem... in light of NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODES... unless you assure me you are outside the NEC purview .. and hold EVERYONE ELSE... ABSOLUTELY & TOTALLY HARMLESS... Indemnifying all the world.. but for yourself.

If you had asked... can that old fashioned Nutone be put on 14 gauge wire... I would have said certainly... but recent CODES no longer allow that fan to be used without a HUMIDISTAT... (whole-house fan system).

I need a replacement part for a rhine pl-190B

A PL-190B ceiling fan module is is a Wattage Limiter rated at 190W maximum. It is about 1" square and has a red, blue and white factory wired into the fan's light circuit in most cases. The AC power to the lights is run through the module to "ensure" no one puts more than 190W (about 2 amps)of light bulbs through the circuit for "safety" reasons. So four 60w bulbs and some CFLs will trip the module. These wattage limiters are sometimes feeding the fan motor in addition to the lights, however the units I have seen just control the "blue wire" going to the lights.
Some suggest simply cutting it out and splice the blue and red wires (or blue and blue) that are left in the fan after removing out the module. If the module has two whites, wirenut them together separately. Otherwise just insulate or cap the single white.
At that point your ceiling fan and lights are like all others made before 2005 and depend on the circuit breaker and you to only use four 40w bulbs max in the fan. As indicated, some low wattage CFLs will also trip the module. Some internet sources have the PL-190B available for around $15.

I got my craftmade ceiling fan about 10 years ago, the fan has now stopped working but the light works, I changed out the switch on the wall that was not the problem sometimes I will turn on the wall...

pretty sure its the 3 speed pull chain switch.$4.50 to $6.00 at home depot or lowes or hardware/elecrtical store.
how 2 replace switch.
1.turn off breaker to fan/fan lights,probably that whole room.
may need extension cord & floor lamp from closest room with electric, so u can see.
2.need 6ft step ladder to get up to fan.look see how to get to fan speed switch. speed switch unscrews from outside but body of switch is inside fan cover.
3. need to take fan off ceiling to replace switch.
4.switch has 4 wires, power feed into switch and 3 selector
wires that go to high speed winding,medium speed winding and low speed winding.
speed selector switch has 4 settings, off, low,medium,high.

about ac circuits , black wire is 120 volts, hot.
white wires are neutral return wire. an ac voltmeter will read 120volts ac with its red and black probes between black,hot and
white= neutal=ground which is green. If wired properly and polarity was observed, white and green ground wires both connect to the neutral ground buss bar in the circuit breaker panel box and are the same electrical point.

black wires,and the selector handle getting the hot juice into the fan and white returns the used juice to the circuit breaker panel box.
If polarity was observed, you can touch white and ground without getting a shock.
black will jolt or even fry you dead, so make sure the breaker to the fan is off, so that the circuit is de-energized before you touch it.

PLEASE NOTE--- make drawing on paper of what color wires from the fan motor go to what color wires on the selector switch.
If the switch has 4 black wires, you need to put different color electrical tape as a marker, on each wire. or ,to be cheap, you can use white paper,scissors to cut paper,and pencil and write 1,2,3,4 on the paper and tape to the 4 switch wires.

that is: wire # 1 from the switch goes to the black wire from the wall--ac hot
wire #2 from switch goes to yellow fan motor winding,
wire # 3 from switch goes to orange wire from fan motor

wires are specific and NOT interchangeable.

go to & type into search engine box
how to replace fan motor speed selector switch.

Help! I accidentally washed my Hunter ceiling fan remote. It was mixed up in my sheets and it went into the washer with the laundry. I retrieved it and dried it. I know the battery works because I put it...

The electronic parts inside the remote are not sealed. Water is a conductor of electricity and has changed the way the circuits need to function to control your fan unit.
Remove the battery & place the remote in a sock and fill a large bowl with uncooked (dry) rice 1/2 way. Put the sock in the bowl on the rice and cover with more rice. Wait a day or two.
The dry rice will act as a sponge - and attract the moisture from the remote completely (this works for anything that shouldn't get wet (cellphones, etc.).
After allowing the rice to absorb the moisture, remove the remote & discard the rice. Install the battery and try again. If it still doesn't work, you'll need to replace the remote.
Good luck!

I put a 3 amp in the plug and i heard a bang i tried another and it would'nt work? do you rhink the motor has gone and can i get it fixed?

like many electrical items there made for the right fuse or breaker to be ran off of the main box so there is a high odds your fan had to many amps going through it and very good that you blew the motor,you would have to replace the motor if you want it to run again.

Which color gets hooked up to what on a ceiling fan

For residential wiring, some basic rules given in the NEC are:
  • Phase wire in a circuit may be black, red, orange (high leg delta) insulated wire, sometimes other colors, but never green, gray, or white (whether these are solid colors or stripes). Specific exceptions apply, such as a cable running to a switch and back (known as a traveler) where the white wire will be the hot wire feeding that switch. Another is for a cable used to feed an outlet for 250VAC 15 or 20 amp appliances that do not need a neutral, there the white is hot (but should be identified as being hot, usually with black tape inside junction boxes).
  • The neutral wire is identified by gray or white insulated wire, perhaps with stripes.
  • Grounding wire of circuit may be bare or identified insulated wire of green or having green stripes. Note that all metallic systems in a building are to be bonded to the building grounding system, such as water, natural gas, HVAC piping, and others.
  • Larger wires are furnished only in black; these may be properly identified with suitable paint or tape.
  • All wiring in a circuit except for the leads that are part of a device or fixture must be the same gauge. Note that different size wires may be used in the same raceway so long as they are all insulated for the maximum voltage of any of these circuits.
  • The Code gives rules for calculating circuit loading.
  • Ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection is required on receptacles in wet locations. This includes all small appliance circuits in a kitchen, receptacles in a crawl space, basements, bathrooms and a receptacle for the laundry room, as well as outdoor circuits within easy reach of the ground. However, they are not required for refrigerators because unattended disconnection could cause spoilage of food, nor for garbage disposals. Instead, for refrigerators and other semi-permanent appliances in basements and wet areas, use a one-outlet non-GFCI dedicated receptacle. Two-wire outlets having no grounding conductor may be protected by an upstream gfci and must be labelled "no grounding". Most GFCI receptacles allow the connection and have GFCI protection for down-stream connected receptacles. Receptacles protected in this manner should be labeled "GFCI protected".
  • Most circuits have the metallic components interconnected with a grounding wire connected to the third, round prong of a plug, and to metal boxes and appliance chassis.
  • Furnaces, water heaters, heat pumps, central air conditioning units and stoves must be on dedicated circuits
  • The code provides rules for sizing electrical boxes for the number of wires and wiring devices in the box.
The foregoing is just a brief overview and must not be used as a substitute for the actual National Electrical Code.

My electric fan is not rotating? what is the problem on it?

check your connections first look for some loose wiring or check if the plug is properly fitted or inserted into the outlet. If it doesnt solve the problem you may try to check if the fan is stock by spinning its shaft..put some oil into the bushing... If the fan is still not working the problem could be an open circuit on the magnetic wire probably due to overuse /overheating but if it has an overload protection you can try to twist its wire together and the problem is solved or maybe just replace it with a new overload protector.. or if worst u will have to replace or have a service for the rewind its motor.
