Wireless ceiling fan

My ceiling fan is located on the ceiling in the middle of my cathederal ceilinged greatroom. A cord is attached to the fan and swags over and plugs into a plug at the top of the wall about 5 feet away from the fan. I can use the switch which is lower on the wall to turn the fan on/off. I don't want the cord showing that connects the fan to the plug and can't easlily recess it into the ceiling.

Is there a device(s) that can be installed into both the fan & plug (wireless transmitter?) that will enable me to eliminate the hanging (swagged) cord and operate the fan from the switch on the wall? I am ready to replace the ceiling fan and need to know what to buy to enable this.

There are remote controlled fan out on the market.

there are also devices the make it remote, but the cord is for power so i dont think you can hide the wires to much without going thru the ceiling.

if you have no access of the cieling then the wire must be there for powering of the fan run along the wall, try stapling the wire to the cieling like around the egdes of the ceiling then perhap painting the wire the same color of the ceiling.

you do not have much option to work with.

you have to make sure you buy the right remote controll

but it still need power.

there a site for remote controls for fan or just buy a new fan all together. im sure they put the plug there for a reason because if you use the fan alot they do go bad.

Good luck

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan


The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

You need to know if there is power to the fixture. If there is , then you might need to replace the receiver. It should be under the canopy where the power is connected for the fan.

a celing fan should only be mounted on a box rated for a ceiling fan. This is a NEC code requirement. You could remove your existing box, and install a new box rated for a ceiling fan. You install the adjustable cross bar, and then attach the box to it. It also has stronger threaded inserts for the fan attaching bolts. Better than having a fan flying through the room.

Ceiling fan with mind of its own


Sounds like you're getting interferrence with the wireless control module. You can remove the shroud at the fan and try another setting on the remote control module. Just be sure to set the wireless hand-held control to the same settings in order for it to operate properly.

Please refer to your owners manual for the fan and the wireless controller for any questions on how to set them to work together. You may have to try a couple of different settings until you get one that isn't
affected by the interferrence it is presently receiving from another ireless source.

Those sources could be a garage door opener, wireless doorbell, TV or other remote control. Cell phones, walkie talkies, and so on. Almost anything that produces a radio signal, could be the cause of the problem.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!
