Try changing the regulator....
Replacing the capacitor doesn't help in increasing the speed!!!!

Hi,

Guess what? A standard dimmer switch will not properly operate a fan motor. In fact, it’s most likely going to damage the fan motor and it could even potentially cause a fire. I’ll admit I even went out and bought a dimmer switch and I sat down to just “make sure” I was doing the right thing when I figured this out.
Standard dimmer switches are designed for the wattage of lights. Fan controls are designed for the amperage of the fan motor. So if you want to control the speed of a ceiling fan make sure you buy a fan speed control that specifically says it works for fans. Fan controls come in quite a few styles. The most common type has been around for quite some time and that is the rotary or dial type. The next most common fan control I found was the toggle that has three pre-set speeds (slow, medium and fast). You can also get a fan control that has a slider control along with a toggle switch.
dimmer+switch.jpgThe type that I want to install is a toggle switch with a small slider switch next to it. I have a feeling I’ll have to order one of these but I’ll check with my electrician tomorrow to find out the scoop. The bottom line is you can’t use a standard dimmer switch to control a ceiling fan. You have to get a fan speed control switch that is specifically designed to operate fan motors.












the short wire leads coming from the switch should be attached to other wires with small wire nuts. Just unscrew the wire nuts, unscrew the finial type cap that holds the switch in place, remove the switch and take it to the store. If your lights are strictly "ON"-"OFF" there should be just two wires from the switch. If your lights are controlled - "One" "TWO" or "THREE" at a time the switch will probably have three wires coming from it.

Can I use a GE 18021 Dimmer Switch to slow down a loud vibrating fan in my 15 year-old non-variable-speed humidifier?


No, there are two issues:

1) There isn't a good way to wire the dimmer to the fan without simulatenously wiring it to the other components within the humidifier - dimming electronics that are not designed to be dimmed is just asking for trouble.
2) The problem with fans is that they can lock up - and when they do, they can pull an excessive amount of current out of whatever switch/dimmer is controlling it. The devices need to be rated to handle that excessive in-rush, and it would annihalate a basic rotary dimmer.

I bought a Hunter fan Model 21778 that uses 2 incandescent candelabra lights. Before installing it I called Hunter support to see if it was okay to use a dimmer switch for these lights (I had already...


They're right, you don't want to control the whole thing with a single incandescent dimmer. First of all, the fan-speed and the lights will all be controlled by the same dimmer setting (dim low, low fan-speed - dim high, high fan-speed) - and the dimmer's not rated to control fans anyway which can result in exactly what they said.

There is a Skylark control, the S2-LFSQ- where half the knob controls the light, the other half controls the fan. The only problem you may (and most likely) have is that in order for that to work, between the electrical box for the dimmer and the fan, there needs to be seaparate wire run for the fan, and a separate wire run for the light so that the dimmer can individual control both.

If that's a problem, I recommend the MA-LFQM-, which includes a module that you install in the ceiling with the fan. The wall switch it comes with speaks to that module, and gives you independent control of the fan and light without having to install new wiring. I have one of those myself, I've installed one in one of my friend's houses, and they work pretty well and then you don't have to worry about what wires you've got in your wall.

L purchased a Lutron S2-LFSQ for our bathroom light and fan. l was informed by the store, this item was job specific so wouldn't have fan burnout. l now discovered stamped on the switches aluminum edging;...


Yeah, it matters.

The first thing is that the fan-speed in that control is only rated for 1.5-Amps. The issue with bathroom fans (I have to assume an exhaust fan) is not only how much current they pull during normal operation, but what happens if the fan rotor locks - that can pull some pretty hefty current slugs that the device is NOT rated for.

Also, generally speaking, putting fan-control on an exhaust fan doesn't work that well. If you slow down the speed at all, it significantly minimizes the amount of air-flow going through the room - which means you're using all of that energy for basically nothing.

My recommendation is to instead get Lutron's MA-L3T251- device. Here, you have the dimmer for the lights (same as the control you bought), and you have a timer switch that's rated for general purpose fan loads (up to 2.5A).

Hi, is this fan an older fan with the dimmer type control on the fan itself, (and you have a wall speed control in addition to) or is it the later fan with a three speed pull chain control? If the latter, the service rep may have accidentally placed the fan on Medium speed which due to additional capacitance from the speed control board in the switch housing, could cause the symptoms you describe.

Thanks, Brian

P.S. That's an $$$$ fan, glad to see you had it repaired instead of replaced.

Ceiling fan is controlled by dimmer


Yes, if the hot wire going up to the fan is coming off the dimmer, it is reduced voltage and will slow down. There maybe a separate hot from another switch??

A regular dimmer switch will not do what you want.  A variable speed switch similar to a dimmer but made specifically to control motor loads may do what you want.  I think it would have to be installed after the 5-speed controller because the reduced voltage may cause problems for that controller.  Maybe you should just replace the controller with a the variable speed switch.

Dimmer controls the fan / noisy


Sounds like a wireing problem, You wired the light dimmer into the fan control. thats why the fan slows down when you dim the lights.
