Question about Emerson Fans Emerson SW375 Receiver

Open Question

Only off and high speed

I have the emerson cornerstone 1895 with a 6 speed remote hand-held control and receiver. I think it the sw375 reciever thats bad, because I get a mmentary hum and motor twist, but the fan won't continue to spin at any lower speed. I get operation at high speed, but can't get a lower speed to stay constant. The fan is ony operable at high and I'd wish to know what part needs replacement. Is it the receiver that is bad, or is it the capacitor?

    I also have an Emerson fan with the SW375 control unit. My fan will run at the very lowest speed and the very highest speed but nothing in between. If you turn it on a very lowest speed and then try to increase speed on the remote unit it will jump to the very highest speed even though indicater lights on remote unit show intermediate speeds. Is my SW375 bad?

SOURCE: 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.

I just moved into a house with a Hunter ceiling fan only controlled with a hand-held remote controller that has 2 speeds: OFF and HIGH. How can I adjust this fan to a lower speed?


If the fan still has a pull chain on the side of the motor housing, you can use that to change the speeds and/or turn it it OFF or ON. If it has 2 chains, one is for the speed control and the other is for the light fixture, it is so equipped.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

You need to completely disassemble the hand held remote unit, remove the rubber push buttons and clean the contacts. Mine do this frequently. The contacts are black and will be slimey. I just use soapy water and a soft cloth to gently clean them. Be sure to dry them completely before reassembling. Also be sure you dont get any of the electronics wet.

Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed


It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.


I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.
