I have 2 60" industrial ceiling fans of unknown manufacture (Emerson, Hampton
Bay, Hunter, ???) that have been working beautifully for about 2 years. They had
4 speed switches that stopped working at the highest speed and then at the 2nd
highest speed. The switches are Rhine UC9020 and they suck. There are 2
capacitors on the back and these resistors (one of which has burned) on the
front. I've seen others complain about this but have found nobody that can
recommend a good replacement switch.
Are all 4 speed fan switches the same?
I am truly at a loss here.
rest of the fan components are any good?
joe, thank you for your insight and you may be correct.
I don't know about the quality of the fan components, but I have had no
complaints about the fans themselves.
When the switch worked, they worked, were fairly quiet, and moved a lot of air
(almost too much on the max setting).
I'm not looking to replace the existing solution, I'm just looking for a better
switch and maybe a little knowledge in the process.
I'm not one to replace my car because a cheap ignition relay fails.
