Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

My Airworks ceiling fan with remote stopped working. With Room light switch in 'on' position, remote no longer turns light on or controls fan speeds. Changed 9-volt battery but did not make a difference. In the compartment where 9-volt battery sits there is a small switch that has 4 tiny switches. Are these for any particular function of the ceiling fan? If it was only the bulb that needs replacement why should not the remote control the fan operation? Can you help or make suggestions to try? Jim

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.

SOURCE: LG Spilt A/C

medev,

there is a lot of reason why your LG split unit would not work by remote control.
first likely trouble is the remote itself. it could have drop from a height and broke the remote, or corrosion has set inside the remote if you left an old battery for a long time and it could have broken it.

secondly which is not more likely to happen is the remote receiver in your unit got broke that is why it can not communicate with your remote controller. it could happen if someone has serviced your evaporator and could have disconnected wires to the receiver , or wires were just left not connected.

you can test the remote if you have an identical unit which is working with a working remote. use the working remote to your unit then you can decide.
i hope i was able to help.

The canopy should turn either left or right to remove. I'm sure you've tried this, but if the fan's been there awhile, it may just be a little stuck and you need to work at it.

"Ball Ceiling Fan" - hardwired wall switch only turns on or off, no speed control or light control, stuck on "high" and light "on" when switch is in "on" position.


The most likely cause (and the one I've always encountered) is the switch/controller nit wears out from electrical arcing that burns the contacts or temperature kills electronics on "soft" speed controllers

I have an airworks remote for my light and ceiling fan, quit working waht can i co?


Take off the battery, open the back of your remote, lift the circuit board, clean the green painted part with cotton balls slightly damp with rubbing alcohol as well as the black thingy behind your remote pad, let it dry put it back together, replace with a new battery and try if it works.

We have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan (about 10 yrs old) don't know the model. It will only turn 1 speed? When trying to change speeds with the chain pull it stays the same. It quit working for a while and I...


the fan changes speed by inserting a capacitor of different values in series with the motor .. direct drive to the motor is the fastest speed .. a large capacitor in series slows it down a bit and a smaller capacitor slows it down more ... so if your fan is running at full speed all the time then one of the capacitors is shorted or the switch is bad .. if its stuck on one of the lower speed settings then the switch has a bad contact .. the capacitors are mounted together in a small box with several wires going to the pull chain switch .. you can replace the capacitor box .. and you can replace the 3 or 4 position switch ... or you can remove all that stuff and put in a remote controled system .. that involves a box that just fits inside the fan .. it is hooked to AC power and neutral .. it then hooks up to the lilght and the fan giving you control over both .. you can vary brightness and fan speed .. you would no longer need the fan or light pull switch or the capacitors ... you could also get a new fan having such a controller .. since yours is fairly old it might be worthwhile to upgrade .. some of the remote controls allow you to set a temperature ..if the room goes above that temp then the fan turns on automatically and the speed is determined by how much higher the room temprature is from that set value .. some remotes also give you an additional very low fan speed .. thats nice at night when you just need a gentle breeze .. some also allow you to set a delay before the lights go out after you have clicked "turn off" ... that gives you time to exit the room or get in bed before the lights actually go out ... kindof nice features that might make it worth while to up grade .. to get parts for your old fan see this URL

since Home Depot sells hampton bay .. then they might have parts as well .. worth a try .. you can also see new models there ..

Track lighting remote control similar to that of ceiling fan?


Yes, but the remote operates on the switch that turns the lights on and off. Lutron has this kind of technology and it is really cool. I have it all over my house and I don't even have to go room by room turning lights off; I just push a button from my bedroom. Along with a single remote that can be used with each switch in your house, you can program a house remote that controls the lights and ambiance of every room.

Fan is Erratic


Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.

Remote Control Problem


I had this problem. One day everything worked. The next day the fan ran at 1 speed and the remote didn't turn on the light, change fan speed, nothing. I changed batteries on the remote - no good. As you should know, the dip switches on the remote and on the fan have to match - which makes the remote and the fan on the same radio frequency so they can talk to each other. (They let you change radio frequency so that you don't control a similar fan down the hall as well as the one in the room that you intended to control.) Anyway, come to find out from the fan guy at Home Depot that sometime the dip switches on the fan "fall" out of place leaving the remote unable to talk to the fan. Sounded crazy, but sure enough one of the dip switches on the fan wasn't tightly in place. Once all the dip switches were tightly in place (with the fan dip switches matching the remote dip switches) everything ran fine. To change the dip switches on my fan that meant uninstalling the fan from the ceiling and taking the big top cover off to expose the dip switches.

Remote control stopped working


Under the dome (where the electrical connections are) is the receiver unit for the fan. It could be that it is no longer working. Also the remote may have dip switches to change the frequency channel (sometimes located behind the batteries) check that these have not been changed or check they correspond to the receiver unit on the fan.
