Take blue wire and hook to
the wire that was formerly the red wire,
where the junction of the black wire and blue
wire hooks to the Direction Switch. Notice there
is no orange or green wire. This is only to
confuse you. Without them you will not suceede .
now, if there is brown wire , cut it off as close
as you can so you can't use it if you wanted to.
In some fans if you get the wires crossed
the fan will run so fast that it will pull itself
from the Ceiling which will cause a virus to apear
in yaur Computer and suck all the information off
and render it usless. (been there , Done that)
The easy way is if you take an old VCR in the Atic
over where your Fan is. Pull the 4 wires back up
in the Atic.In the VCR you will find somewhere
a 1 2 3 4 (does not mater) but be sure you hook
the red , RED wire to the # 2 as red is always 2
Unless it has Pardon Papers from Bill Clinton..
After you finish you use 6 on the remote for LOW
(ie) 1+5=6 , use 2 for MED.(ie) 4=4=8-6= 2 (RED)
and so on.. Qualifications: My Dad , Like myself
are EE's. I remember when I was a kid , my dad
installed a door bell. He hooked it up backwards
it rang all the time till someone pushed the button
it would Stop,, We got used to it after a couple of
years. When you go to get a Switch, get a new Fan
Believe me it's a lot eaiser..
