I tried to install a remote control on one of my ceiling fans. To my
surprise, when I took the canopy off the entire fan fell down. The only
thing holding the fan up were the electrical connections. Luckily I was
holding the fan so it did not fall to the floor. I am used to having the
ball at the top of the fan hooking into a bracket. That way you can drop
the canopy and just wire in the remote receiver.
Since the fans were installed by the previous owner, I do not have the
installation instructions. Anyone have any advice on how I can keep the fan
from falling while I disconnect the wires to install the receiver. Am I
missing an easy solution?
Thanks for any help.
I had the same problem when I installed my remote control. I had to have
someone stand on the the backside of the ladder to hold the fan up.
And then the remote just barely fit. It was not a pleasant experience, but
it was two years ago and seems to have come out okay.
