Thread: Fan Speed Control

  1. #1

    Fan Speed Control

    Do these switches work with ceiling fans with lights? Or only light less fans.

    I have one connected now and hear the horrible hum knowing if I use it I’ll burn motor

    Assuming you have the PD-FSQ... It will not control the fan and light together. Dimming a light requires a different control than controlling fan speed. In general, you will need a fan that has a pull-chain for speed control. Set it on high and use the PD-FSQ to control the speed.

    I have a fan light combo that had 2 on/off switches.

    Replaced with a light dimmer and fan speed controller

    Could a dimmer not be used in this type of config maybe?

    I went ahead and installed the other two dimmers and fan control switches without issues.

    I’m guessing it’s just the ceiling fan at this time.

    Thank you
