Hello, in summer the fan blades should spin counterclockwise.

    Here is some info on fan direction. A ceiling fan’s direction in the summer should be rotating counter clockwise or forward to produce a Wind Chill effect by the downward airflow. The thermostat won’t actually change but the room will seem several degrees cooler due to the wind chill factor. You can save on air conditioning bills by placing ceiling fans throughout your home.  According to Casablanca Fan Company FAQ page when you are using a ceiling fan you can then “raise the thermostat setting, resulting in reduced air conditioning energy consumption of 40% or more” while still keeping your room cool

I have a sidewinder model 312 342 in which we only use the hand remote. The wal mount remote was not installed. The hand remote does not have the feature to reverse the blades. is there another remote...


The short answer is no.
Since it is not a function of the fan's original remote control buying any remote that has this (as a custom feature) will never work with your fan. . . Sorry

Explanation:

Since you usually only change the rotation twice a year this is accomplished by a switch on the fan itself.
During winter heating, to help move warm air that is trapped on the ceiling, blades should turn 'forward' in a clockwise motion. This movement will push up the air and pull the warm trapped air down the sides of the room improving heat distribution.

During hot summer weather, to help produce a comfortable breeze or 'windchill' that cools the skin, blades should rotate in a 'reverse' counter-clockwise motion. The air movement has the same comfortable effect as when you fan yourself with a magazine to get relief from hot, stifling air.

Hope this helps,

Should the blades of a reversible ceiling fan turn clockwise or counterclockwise in the Summer?


Seeing as to how hot air rises and cold air falls, you may get better results with air circulation if you have them blowing upwards (as it will help pull the cooler air up and flow elsewhere.)

We got 4 HUNTER ceilin fans in one room. Model 27185-060 with remote FCC ID:IN2TX11 Two of them are runing clocwise another two in opsite side Wat can we do to run all in one direction?


Your Hunter ceiling fan is equipped with a small switch that changes the spin of the blades from clockwise to counter-clockwise. Regardless of the make or model of your ceiling fan, this switch is typically located on the center motor housing where the fan blades are attached. good-day!

I have Hawkins ceiling fan. How do I switch blade directions - between warm weather (counter clockwise) & cool weather (clockwise)?


Clockwise on high for Summer. Counter Clockwise on slowest speed for Winter, to get the heat off the ceiling. A good way to remember which direction it should go from season to season , is by the directional switch on the side of the fan.. Switch Up for Winter. Switch Down for Summer.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Does the switch to change the direction of the fan need to be up or down to pull warm air down


In the winter you would want the fan turningclockwise and on most ceiling fans it is in the up position. and in the summer you want it in the down position running counter clockwise creating a wind chill effect.

I HAVE A HAMPTON BAY CEILING FAN. MODEL FAN-2R


On the body of the fan motor is a small sliding switch(up and down), if you cannot reach it you can use a broomstick to carefully change it's position.

Fan won't reverse to counter clockwise


I had a hampton bay fan that absolutely did not have a revers switch on the fan anywhere! MOST fans bought today will reverse. I was not about to give up. I scoured the net for an answer and could not find anything to help. I did however find a comment somewhere that said it could be done internally. After about six months I decided to search again (now). Nothing... so I started playing with the remote and the wall switch and Shazaam! I figured it out on my hampton bay fan. Turn the fan on high... Turn the wall switch off.... wait until the fan is pretty slow in rotation... hold the HI button on the remote.... Turn the switch back on. IT Worked for me! Hope this helps someone. SparqMark
