Understanding Remote Control Modules for Ceiling Fans

Electrical Question: Can I wire a ceiling fan remote control to a three way switch?

Dave’s Reply:

How to Wire a Remote Control for a Ceiling Fan

  • Yes, a remote control module may be installed for a ceiling fan that has three way switches.
  • It should be understood that the switches must be in the position where they are providing power to the ceiling fan so that the remote control modules have power in order for them to function.
  • Another way to describe this is that the wall switches over ride the functions of the remote control modules.
  • The same is true for the pull chain switches on the ceiling fan, which must be in the FULL ON position otherwise the remote control will not function properly.
