Fantastic Fan Troubleshoot
Hey everyone, I was hoping I could get the hive mindís help on an issue that is stumping me. My ďFantastic FanĒ ceiling fans isnít functioning.
First issue was that it stopped turning on. Only the fan part though. The motor that controls the rain guard functions fine.
So I took the screen down and started messing with wires to see if anything was loose and randomly the thing turns on (I had the switch on on while wiggling wires) but then the blade hit a wire and the fuse blew ( Iím unsure if that was a coincidence but I doubt it.
So I replace the fuse and try again, this time careful to keep the wires away from the fan blades. Works. So I screw it all back in and test it out. Fan turns on and operates fine.
Last thing I check is that the automatic turn on/off feature works in combination with the rain guard as itís raised/lowered. The fan shuts off as the rain guard comes down, but then when I try to have it turn on as the rain guard goes up the fan wonít turn on again. Fuse is not blown and I canít see any issues visually.
I read that the fan has a shut off/ turn on feature so that it shuts itself off as the rain guard comes down and only turns on when the rain guard is open enough to provide enough air flow for proper operation. I am beginning to wonder if there is something wrong with the wires responsible for that communication between the rain guard and fan motors, or something like that?
Any ideas/experienced anyone? This is a 2021 FC 25FB, really only like 4 months old at this point.
