It sounds like the fan blade may be installed upside down, or the entire motor/fan assembly is upside down. Typically, these small motors aren't reversible, so you should check the blade first.

Allen & Roth Eastview ceiling fan. How do I reverse to pull up warm air instead of blowing air down?


Look for a slide switch on the side of the housing beneath the motor. If the manufacturer wired it correctly, the up position will pull up warm air and the down position will blow air down.

Fan on outside unit spins counter clockwise pulling air in instead of forcefully blowing air out as it should. This fan doesnot look reversible, could this be the wrong fan or is there a way to reverse it?...


air should be coming out of the top. It will work either way. If your fan is reversible it will have a sticker on the side explaining how to reverse it and it will have exttra wires plugged into each other right at the motor. good luck

Hoods should blow out from the chimney, its defianately not a wiring problem. If it is blowing down towards your cooker instead of sucking up then you should contact Range as it could be a manufacturing fault.

Yes. It should blow out the top. The rotation of the fan does determine the direction of air. Either have the motor replaced and indicate the direction of rotation.

No the radiator fans do not have anything to do with the A/C, they help keep the motor cool in traffic. It sounds like you might have done some damage to the wiring with the jury rig repair job.
