Question about Hampton Bay 73554 Antigua Ceiling Fan

Open Question

The black transformer in the lower portion burns up

I have now replaced 4 Antigua fans due to the black transformer burning up. Some of the fans have worked for months and other 1 day.

My fan has a light kit and is controled by two regular switches on the wall (not a dimer). In the housing I attach the fan to the light fixture is where the black transformer box is located that keeps burning up. It melts wires into the box or buldges out to the side.

I have had other types of fans in the same location in previous years but never had this problem. Any idea why.

    I have the same problem. Got to one and now none. The black transformer refered to is actually the capacitors in a black case. It is marked PQC-1. This is wired to the motor speed switch. My fan is mod.# AC 5540 D / Ser. 003777 0G. I can easily replace it if I can find where to get another one. Please advise.

    So, one wall switch controls the fan, and one controls the lights? Please tell me how many wires and what colors come out of the ceiling box; then tell me how you have them hooked to the fan.

Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

SOURCE: How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

Two days ago my hampton bay fan made 4 or 5 popping sounds, sparked and smoked for about 3 seconds. but works perfectly do i clean it, and carrry on or do i have to worry about it?


hi.

DO NOT USE THIS FAN. disconnect if possible.

any spark, smoke and popping noises from any electrical items MUST be treated as highly suspect and a possible fire risk, until professionally tested and given the all clear.

it may just be a few bits of dust burning off, but it MUST be checked before you can assume it is safe.
sparks and smoke with a little dust or grease can cause a fire.

i AM trying to frighten you into doing something rapidly, as this could be a serious fire risk, and must be considered dangerous until tested and proven to be safe.
i would not be doing my job responsibly if i did not make this point absolutely clear

Check this response from 2008 for same model fan.

Fan stopped Turning - Removed fan to check all the connections. All the connections were good. When you turn the fan on, you can hear a humming sound. If you take off the blades you can spin the motor and it will work, but will not turn on it's own.

    I called Home Depot customer service. I had my receipt, so they gave me store credit for the full purchase. Since I have two fans, they wanted to know if I wanted to replace both fans. I told them one was still working fine, so I only replaced one. My problem was the transformer. You could see where it had overheated and melted.

I no longer smell the ozone smell that i used too.


You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers.

Ceiling fan power


It sounds like the fan motor has blown out. Is this an old fan? The motors do burn out every 5-10 years, depending on the brand and quality of motor.
