Reversing blade direction

I can't find the switch that reverses the direction the blades rotate in. I live in Florida and it's extremely hot and the fan is not producing any airflow.

    just installed and am not going to use the remote. It says you need remote to change fan direction. Is there another way? Too hard to install remote in our old house. Sauterne 54# Ceiling fan (Hampton Bay)

    Thanks, Margie

I just found this on another site. The answerer there said he hit "med-hi-med-hi" on the remote. I tried that, nothing seemed to work. I was impatient and frustrated and I did that a bunch of times, then tried "lo-hi-lo-hi" a few times. Anyway, I finally gave up and it worked! So it was one of the combos of 2 speeds that worked. It's great!

Original thermo fan blew the blade off. bought after market thermo fan but doesnt work with the original plug. does the have to have the polarity reversed or am I missing something?

fan blades are profiled (as in a aircraft wing) so that the air is drawn through the radiator . IF the fan blades are incorrect then reversing the polarity will bot be as effective as it needs to be.. So check that the fan blades will work in the right direction and replace the plug or cut and splice the wires to reverse polarity .

Hello, I replaced a light fixture on my existing Emerson ceiling fan. The light worked right away but the blades didn't turn. I could hear power going to the motor so I went back into the switch cup and...

Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    The blade is turning backwards

    That is physically not possible!

    1. immediatelly switch off saw
    2. remove cord from the plug
    3. remove blade from machine
    4. reverse blade 180degree and install it in direction of the rotation! if you look at saw from the blade side, rotation is clockwise!!! and cutting edge of teh teeth should point clockwise!
    5. install and tighten the blade
    6. plug in and switch in short burst only, check if it is rotating in proper direction and blade have teeth in proper direction
    7. make test cut

    Do not forget that this is not a toy, blade on circular saw cut through wood, metal and your fingers... always wear googles or eye/face protection shield, you have only two eyes and no spares...

    Enjoy your woodworking experience! Always observe safety and machine rules.

    Hope this allow you to fix the problem. Please leave note how did you go.

    Can not find directions to reverse fan rotation for summer

    it should be a simple slide switch on the side of the housing that moves up and down to change the direction of rotation of the fan motor and blades. look at the manual that came with the fan to make sure it has this feature but i personally have never seen a fan without one.

    There should be a small switch on the side of the fan body for reversing the direction. If this is remote control only then that is where to look for this feature ,,

    Reversing rotation

    The tech told me whre the switch was and at some point this winter I will get a very tall ladder and switch the fan over to clockwise - not a very good design on Hampton Bay's part.
