You need to get into the wiring enclosure and redo the wire that is loose. You do this by turning off the switch that goes to the light and fan so the power is all off. Then you remove the light bulbs and those blue sconce enclosures. The latter are hand-tightened with three screws.
Once these breakable pieces are removed, undo the fixture part by undoing all three phillips screws. The piece will come off into your hands though the wires will still hold it up. Then look to the see that the two wires coming from each socket are securely fastened to the wires from the other sockets as well as a white wire-the neutral-coming from the fan part and the part coming from the pull chain. So you will have two sets of five wires each. I would bet that one of the wires from this faulty socket is loose. Tighten them all up with a wire-nut and reverse the above steps.

SOURCE: fan works lights dont

It's most likely that when the bulb burned out the electrical heat got to the socket causing the emergency shut down of the lights if you take of the light casing there should be a small switch next to one of the bulbs all you have to do is flick the switch, put back the casing and walla your lights should work (hopefully lol =])

Help. I need help properly connecting wires on a new ceiling fan.


Usually, the fans with remotes will dim the lights by holding the light button for a few seconds. So, the red wire would stop this feature if wired directly to the fixture. That would eliminate the wire coming out of the receiver for the lights. If you want the light to dim, then tape off the red wire, so the remote will dim them. The wall switch won't work anymore. If you want to connect the red wire , tape off the wire from the receiver that connects to the light sockets and connect the red wire to the wire for the light sockets. This will operate the fan but the remote will not dim the lights. If you have a motor speed controller in the wall from the old fan, remove it and replace it with a switch or eliminate the switch altogether so the remote will control the fan speed.

Controls, heating and turntable function normally, but there is an intermittent failure (approx 80 of the time) where the interior light and blower do not function when the microwave is operating .


follow this test and fix it; God bless you
1)

  1. Light bulbIf your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.
2)
  1. Exhaust fan motorIf your exhaust fan motor is not running, there are a couple of things that you can check involving the motor to locate the problem. After removing the fan motor, you can manually attempt to turn the fan blades with your hand. If the fan motor is working properly, the blades should spin effortlessly. If this does not occur and the blades are taught, the motor will need to be replaced. Secondly, the fan motor itself can burn out due to time and usage. Using an ohm meter, the exhaust fan motor should read open for continuity. If it does not, then the fan motor has expired and will need to be replaced.
  2. ThermostatAnother part that could cause the microwave exhaust fan to not work is a faulty thermostat. A thermostat gauges the air temperature, which activates the exhaust fan when required. If this part becomes flawed, the exhaust fan will not energize and the thermostat will need to be replaced.
  3. Main control boardIf your exhaust fan is still not working and the microwave fan motor, wiring, and thermostat are operating accurately, the root cause could be with the main control board. Replace the main control board.

The blue should be for the lights and you can ty this into the black. The red should be the incoming for the motor to the fans. Some models are different and I strongly believe you have got to be talking about a ceiling fan and not a vacuum. Is this a test question? Because it is a darn good one if you do not mind me saying so however you might have not noticed to check or uncheck a box for the fans. Good luck.

Fan lights just started blinking, we changed bulbs which were bad but still blinking with new bulbs


This problem was posted on several sites, but this was the only one where I found both the cause of the problem and the solution. Mine is a Hunter 5 Minute Fan which came with no remote. And after about a month the two lights would blink together whenever I'd turn them on at the wall. So in case it helps for that type of fan or the same type of wiring arrangment here is what I did: POSITIVE SIDE: P1) Remove the light shade. P2) Remove the 3 screws that hold the cowel and lower the cowel. P3) Disconnect (pull apart) the black and red wire coupling. P4) Cut the coupling off of the black wire that comes up from the lights. P5) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that black wire. P6) Remove the wire nut that connects the black wire coming from the governor with the other black wire. P7) Re-use the wire nut to connect the black wire from step P5 with the other black wire from step P6. NEGATIVE SIDE: N1) Disconnect (pull apart) the white to white wire coupling. N2) Cut the coupling off of the white wire that comes up from the lights. N3) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that white wire. N4) Remove the wire nut that connects the white wire coming from the governor with three other white wires. N5) Set the governor aside (or just throw it away). N6) Re-use the wire nut to connect the white wire from step N3 with the other white wires from step N4. That's all, you're pretty much done! Turn on the power and test the light. If all is good, re-install the cowel and the light shade.

Can this fan be installed without the light kit? If so, will the upper light work?


most newer ceiling fans have 3 wires, a black, white and blue. The blue is for a light kit which is optional in most cases. All other functions should work.

Light dims but won't turn off with remote


I am affraid that there is not an economical solution for your fan. Afterf four years you probably have a dust build up on circuitry causing a short and excess heat. If you have a source of compressed air for instance an air compressor or a keyboard cleaned you can try blowing out the inner components of the fan. Good luck.

Fan/stove light switch broke needs replacing


The original fan switch for the SEG196 (circa 1995) is a four terminal switch- two for the fan and two for the light . Note that the switch spade lugs for the red and blue wires (which when connected activate the fan) are larger than those for the white and brown wires (which when connected activate the oven light). This design presumably prevented miswiring of the switch at original assembly. Since the four terminal switch is nearly impossible to find (it was discontinued several years ago), an inexpensive fix is to replace the four wire switch with a two wire SPST toggle switch. However, this means that either the fan function or the light function can be preserved- not both. I elected to keep the fan function, and simply wired the red & blue wires to the two terminals of a heavy duty replacement SPST toggle switch. Be sure to fully insulate the remaining (in this case) white and brown wires with electrical tape or wire nuts before tucking them below the new switch. Total cost: $6.00 for switch. NOTE: TURN OFF POWER TO RANGE AT ELECTRICAL PANEL BEFORE ATTEMPTING REPAIR! beec3807-1ba5-40e7-a010-7e26d5fca5c0.jpg

I'm trying to scan a picture and my computer is telling me that it's not plugged in correctly! i dont know what to do next!


Check the wires one of them may have been knocked lose, make sure the socket is on and the plug is in correctly, some wires can be a little faulty it may be just on of your fuses had gone check the plug is working by buying an electronic device design to test the socket the box is small and has four yellow lights... Shop around... Once you found one plug into your socket to see the four lights light up... now they will turn off and now plug in both you printer at laptop plug one a time to see if the four lights come on if they don't time to find a new plug.
