I installed a ceiling fan (with a light fixture) in my house (along
with a universal fan remote) that came with a fan hookup.
It had been working well for the past 6 months, but, now suddenly it
seems to be not working properly.
The high setting of the fan is very slow and the light is very dull
(almost like a night lamp though its around 200 w total).
Thanks. That certainly brought the fan speed back to normal.
The lights are still very dim.
How do I reset the transmitter/receiver? I had a spare remote that I
bought for another room and I set it to this code and tried to use
it. That didn't improve the light intensity.
Immediate reaction from here is that you may have a wire nut that has
worked loose given the dim 200W lamp. Try accessing the input wirung
and snug it all up tight. A typical problem with high wattage lamp
sockets, though, is that the center terminal sags under the heat and
lessens the contact and makes the light dim. In more unusual cases a
reallty cheap socket will undergo partial failure from the molded
plastic distorting. The remedy is to replace the socket with a robust
china type from any good electrical distributor. HTH
