Question about Tamarack HV1000-R Fan

Converting to variable speed

I would like to convert this fan to operate at variable speeds. Installing a 3 wire variable speed ceiling fan switch didn't work. Once the current drops the doors start to close and the motors cut out. Is this possible?

Just do a wall control

    If the motor cuts out and the doors start to close, then the unit is not designed to run on variable current. A "Dimmer Switch" variably changes is amount of resistance, thus supplying a variable amount of current. If the dimmer got warm or hot, then it's rating was the problem. I would call the manufacturer. It is possible that the wrong current can permanently damage the unit, especially if the unit converts AC power to DC, which runs the fans. That would be an expensive mistake.

If the wall switch doesn't have 3 or 4 speeds then it is not a fan control. There are no fan companys that make a variable fan control so that should tell you something.REPLACE IT with a fan control.

MY HUNTER ORIGINAL RUNS THRU AN ORDINARY WALL SWITCH. IT HAS HI AND LO SPEEDS ON THE HOUSING, BUT EVEN LO SPEED IS A BIT TOO FAST AT TIMES... HOW CAN I CONTROL THE SPEED THRU FULL RANGE... A RHEOSTAT...


Jim,

You have a special fan there. Hunter Originals are my specialty.

There are two ways to accomplish a slower speed with this fan.

1. A wall variable speed control, solid state, rated for 3 or more amps, regular fan controls will not work as your fan draws 2.5amps on high, not even new ones that are labeled for the Original.

2. Retrofit the fan to make it a three speed. If you're good with wiring, it's really simple. What you need is, a standard 3 speed pull chain switch, not a double pole one like cheaper/new fans have that use capacitor speed control, we are using cap. speed control, but not the same way they do. So you want an "SP3T" switch. You also need an 9 10 or 11 or 12 MFD capacitor (depending on how fast you want your low to be 8 is 20rpm, 11 is 75 approximately). You will remove the switch cap to your fan, and you will find your switch has a black, blue and red wire connected to it. Remove all wires, attach the black to L on your new switch, attach blue to 1, then you need 2 extra pieces of wire. Stick one wire in 2 and the second wire in 3. Now, get your capacitor and hook one side of it to the red wire and position 2, then hook the other side to the wire you put in position three.

Remember to get the Single pole switch for non capacitor speed control fans, if you get the double pole, both winding sets in your fan will be activated, which will draw double current and burn your motor out.

Also, are you aware that your fan uses oil (like an engine) ? and is not permanently lubricated?

3-speed fan switch broke on Hunter model 28072, cat. 300 fan. Found replacement switch at Lowes, but wiring colors are completely different from manual. What color wires go into L, 1, 2, 3 positions...


My Hunter fan uses a Zing-Ear ZE-268S6 switch. This is NOT a standard switch! It connects L to 2 AND 3 for medium speed. It is best to order the exact switch if possible. Hunter wants to sell you the entire bottom assembly (probably expensive). I found the exact switch online at:

http://www.kenselectronics.com/lists/switches.htm#Pull%20chain

for $6.80 plus $4.95 shipping. I bought an extra which didn't increase the shipping - worked great. Hunter ZE-268S6 ceiling fan connection colors: L=black; 3=green; 1=grey; 2=brown. If you need a different switch on their page, just click the Edit menu, then Find, type your part number in the box, and click Next.

Hello Brother,
Installation:
Hang your ceiling fan on the Quick Connect fan bracket and wire the ceiling fan according to the manufacturer's instructions. The three wires coming from your ceiling should match the three wires coming from your ceiling fan: black (positive or hot), white (neutral or negative) and green (ground wire).


Use the high, medium and low keys on the remote to adjust the Hampton Bay fan speed, then use the light key to dim the light and the off key to turn off the fan.


For REMOTE CONTROL FANS you cannot use with any variable speed or slide wall switches. The remote control function must be used with on & off switch outlets only.

Wiring for a 3 speed fan regulator. Previous was a variable controller


Assuming this is not the new electronic signal sendor switch that was made only for the fan and came with the fan; if this is a 3 speed mechanical switch to operate a 3 speed fan, you will need to have 4 wires going to the fan from the switch-----one wire is the common Neutral, the other three are : a single wire for each speed. Good luck, Macgivor

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Need a replacement fan speed potentiometer.


Okay -- first off, I don't know where she got that number from, but that's idiotic.

The variable-speed switch will provide different readings depending on where it's turned to. If the switch is busted ("open), it will typically display a reading of 'infinity' on your ohmmeter.

And yes -- the best place to find a replacement is Radio Shack, since Casablanca discontinued them.

HOWEVER---

Casablanca's variable-speed ceiling fans -- specifically the "SlumberQuiet" ones, which were made from circa 1980 or 1981 to the early/mid 1990s when variable-speed was discontinued -- are well-known for breaking down. The problem is almost never the potentiometer (variable-speed dial). Rather, the problem is almost always the resistor which is mounted in the heat-sink inside the fan's motor housing. There are NO replacements left for these -- so Casablanca makes a "variable-speed to 3-speed conversion kit", which will convert your fan to a more normal 3-speed pull-chain (hi-med-low) setup.

I hope that helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

Wiring a Hampton Bay ceiling fan


Hi Rexter,

I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.
