 o
ceiling fan help

Posted by wizbang (My Page) on

I have a MinkaAire ConceptII ceiling fan. It is on a remote, has a light and fan. I was lying in bed with the fan portion on, and it stopped working. I got up, and tried to turn the fan on, and the light. Nothing...no hum or anything.

There is no way to run the unit other than remote. It has no chains etc. I changed the batteries in the remote, still nothing. The circuit breaker in the basement hasnt been tripped, and the junction box is still hot. I tried to bypass the remote part in the fan and wire directly to the box...fan and light still wont work.

What can anyone tell me? This thing is a 350 dollar fan (bought online from a reseller, no warranty). Should I order new guts for it? Is it the capacitor?

Is there power at the fan? If so check your wiring connections to the fan itself.

so you have checked the connection at the fan to ensure you have power? Have you ensured that the connections to the fan itself have made contact.
