Question about Remote Controls
My F588 Minka Aire fan/light stopped working. The remote controller didn't turnoff the lights. The wall switch turned off the lights. I thought it was the remote controller. I changed the battery and it still didn't work (note:LED light on controller didn't come on.) Not sure what the problem is. It appears that the remote controller is bad. The receiver is possibly bad. I fan lights woulds not come on when I turned the wall switch on. Is there anything I can do to check out the receiver? I definitely need a new remote. The unit has a 9-pin connector (male/female) and the fan/lights are suspended ~ 8 ft from the ceiling. The receiver is in the switchcup under the fan. The power connections are at the top (ceiling) with the male connector located at the bottom of the fan, Can I purchase a new receiver/switchcup assembly that has as the same 9-pin connector connection? I purchased the fan/remote ~ 2000. Fan - Model F588, with RC588 Remote Adapter Kit.

You need to change the tiny DIP switch settings so each fan is set up differently. (Note that each pair of remote transmitters--the one in the fan body, held in a bracket above the light kit when you drop that down; plus the one on the wall switch or in a hand-held remote, must be set with the same combination.)
Our Minka Aire Churchill model has 4 DIP switches; I have seen Casablancas with 5.
