Why a Ceiling Fan Remote Module May Be Going Bad


Mike, from Parsippany, New Jersey asks:
I installed a new Hampton Bay ceiling fan and a new remote control. The fan and remote worked fine for 2/3 weeks and all of a sudden it stopped working. I changed the remote module and it worked for a second and again same problem. The fan works fine if I remove the remote receiver. Why is the remote receiver going bad? Is there any problem in wiring?
Thanks

My Ceiling Fan Light Pull Chain is Shocking Me


Millie, from Bartlesville,OK asks:
My ceiling fan light chain just started having electrical current coming thru it when I touch it. The fan chain doesn't do it just the light. When I turn off the wall switch it doesn't shock me or if I turn the light off and turn the wall switch on there is no shock. What do I need to do to fix this?

Will a Ceiling Fan Require a New Circuit?


James, from Memphis, Tennessee asks:
I have an old house and the electricity has been upgraded from fuses to breakers. I need to ad some electrical to the main bathroom. I want to ad a small ceiling fan and an exhaust fan as well as one more outlet. I think I should run a new line from the electrical box. Is this true, and what size wire should I run and what size breaker should I use? Thanks.

Replacing a Light Fixture with a Ceiling Fan


Doug, from Moorestown, New Jersey asks:
I am installing a ceiling fan. My main light switch panel has four light switches in it with one being a light/dimmer switch that controls the main light where the ceiling fan with a light will go. I want to swap the light/dimmer switch with one of the other plain light switches so I can control reset lighting in the room with the light/dimmer switch. There is #14-3 wires to the light/dimmer switch and #14-2 wires to the regular switch. How do I make this switch or can this be done?

Ceiling Fan Electrical Power Problem


Marianne, from Athens, Texas asks:
We have a 2 story home and the upstairs seems to have some kind of electrical problem. The house was built in 2001 and we purchased it in 2006. When we purchased the house we replaced all of the ceiling fans because the old ones did not seem to work properly. With the new fans (light kit included), the fans do not seem to turn fast enough on high speed. We used the exact same model and brand in our previous house and they worked great! There are four fans upstairs each one has the same problem. In addition to this, I have a computer that is located in the loft area of the upstairs. The original computer had major problems with running too slow so we purchased a new one which should have solved the slow speed problem. The new computer also runs very slow. I was wondering if there is something in the electrical system that could cause these problems.

Additional Circuit Wiring for a Ceiling Fan

Planning the Ceiling Fan Power Source
Question from Buddy: I ran wire to a new fan, I have put in 3 wall switches, after all was done fan and light were fine, I buttoned every thing up and I turned it on and nothing worked, called a electrician friend of mine and he says that I have to come off another circuit for me to put a junction box up in the attic and come off the garage door opener. Any thoughts on this?

Buddy, the electrician may have identified that the wiring that was added came from a circuit that does not have enough capacity for the added electrical loads. If this is the case then the electrician is correct to recommend that a new circuit is required.

Question from Daryl: I need a diagram for wiring two ceiling fans, to one switch.

Daryl, the cable leads to the first ceiling fan, then a second cable loops to the next ceiling fan.

Dave's Reply
The power source for the devices that you are describing should be tested to see if the voltage is correct. The electrical circuits which are providing the power to these devices should be inspected and tested by a qualified electrician.
