There is a variety of different models available in relation to Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fans. This is a step by step guide that will explain how to connect a Harbor Breeze fan and light to two switches, however because these instructions are mostly generic, the same steps can apply to many other ceiling fans.
If requiring only one switch for the fan and one for the light:
Neutral: white wire. The light and fan both will have a white wire for neutral – this is common
Red: Positive for light and fan – one red wire for each one – Hot
Bare wire: Ground
Start by testing power at breaker – ensure there is no power – use a non-contact voltage tester if at all possible. Be aware of possible electrical shock, so non-contact is best
Find all of the green grounding wires, or bare, and connect them together
Look for white wire from ceiling – connect it to the remote receiver module – white wire, inside of the fan
Black wire – connect from ceiling to the remote receiver module inside of the fan – black wire
Blue wire – connect it from the output side of the remote receiver system, inside the fan to the blue wire inside of there
Red wire – connecting from the output side of the fan’s receiver module –
Like many parts for Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fans, finding an end cap can be challenging. When looking around on Google there are many websites that you will find. All of them say they have end caps available, but looking closer none of them do. Even looking at Home Depot or Lowe’s, it appears that very few end caps for Harbor Breeze fans seem to be available.
Hey, we’re just providing the information and knowledge here after taking a look around, just like you. Due to the fact that it’s difficult to even find these end caps from first party retailers, that means that most third party websites you find from Googling aren’t going to be able to offer the end caps either. In most situations, you’ll likely have to buy the end caps used rather then buying a brand new ceiling fan. Of course, we encourage you to reach out to the manufacturer directly using the available phone numbers we’ve been able to provide here.
The only place we’ve been able to find or procure end caps from is Ebay. Again, just being honest here. Even if you find some replacement end caps, chances are you may not be able to find the specific one for your model. We recommend the following course of action if looking for Harbor Breeze end caps:
Call the manufacturer and ask them what end caps will be compatible with your fan. For this, you’ll need the make and model details of your fan first. If you’re not sure what that is, read our article on figuring out the make and model of fan you have.
Ask the manufacturer or any support line you can talk to, for the part numbers of end caps that are compatible with your fan
Scour the Internet for those part numbers. Try Googling for the part numbers, or searching for them on Ebay.
We haven’t had success on Amazon.com or .ca for these specific end caps. However, should that change in the future, we’ll be sure to update you!
The Harbor Breeze Bellhaven Ceiling Fan is pretty standard in that it has five reversible blades, with a three speed motor. What is appealing about the Bellhaven is that it has an attached light kit; and it has
a lovely finish. The maple and walnut blade finish is quite handsome. It looks great in a rustic decor setting, or pretty much any decor for that matter.
Light kit is complete with four lights
Fan is mounted with a downrod – no flush mounting
Meets UL safety listing requirements
52 inch diamater
Sold by: Lowes, Amazon
Alternate finish available – golden cherry / dark teak blades
Downrod options can be 6″ or 12″
The alternate finish of golden cherry and dark teak blades is certainly another handsome option as well. With the option of different finishes which are so opposite of each other, the Harbor Breeze Bellhaven Ceiling Fan certainly is a versatile offering.
The Aero has your usual features – 5 reversible blades, and the motor has three speeds. In order for the blades to be reversible, the motor allows reverse function as well. On this page we list some of the resources that are available for this fan. These resources include the manual, as well as other support resources that will get added to the page and to the site over time.
The ceiling fan manual that we provide here provides some assistance in terms of the Aero ceiling fan. The information presented within the manual include the following:
Care and Maintenance
Downrod Style Mounting
Wiring, as an example, is always one issue that requires much assistance. Generally, many of the wiring colors as it applies to ceiling fan installations is generic.
This means that a green color wire for a fan or a black color wire for a fan generally constitute the same thing, e.g black wire for ground. If you are looking for more assistance with ceiling fan wiring, we can certainly recommend useful guides like this one for providing additional assistance with ceiling fan wiring.
This Harbor Breeze Beach creek fan has a 44 inch blade span, and comes complete with a brushed nickel finish, It has a LED light kit which comes with the fan. It “close mounts” to the ceiling which is similar to flush mount. You can use the downrod that comes with the fan to do a standard downrod mounting, or you can “close mount” to the ceiling. The fan also comes with a remote which will turn the fan or light kit on and off.
Although it may be a thought that light kits are common with fans, this is not always the case. Many fans do not actually come with a light kit. When they don’t come with a light kit, they also may not necessarily include a remote, either. This is important to understand.
The fan features a energy efficient light kit. Airflow is almost 4,000 CFM. This makes this fan a good pick for small rooms, but not for larger rooms as you might imagine. If you do want to have some good airflow in a larger room, look for a larger fan. 42 – 44 inch fans are generally for smaller spaces. Ceiling fans with a 46″ blade span or larger are good for larger rooms.
Having a touch screen on any piece of electronics is always helpful and improves visibility. With LCD remotes you can see everything the fan is doing, which only further improves visibility. LCD Displays add a digital overview of what all of the controls are currently set to.
When looking online for Harbor Breeze LCD ceiling fan remote controls, the problem is that they are difficult to find. There are not many that exist on the Internet for our site visitors to buy. We get asked from time to time, can you provide me with the LCD or touch screen ceiling fan remote for my Harbor Breeze. The model number is 0338739, as an example. We wish we could help with these inquiries, but we are not able to find many touch screen remote controls from Harbor Breeze that are available whatsoever. If you do know of a place we can acquire them, other than Home Depot please do feel free to let us know. Generally, Home Depot is probably your best bet. We hear all of the horror and war stories from people who have tried and tried to get parts from that retailer so we understand if you have tried and are having trouble. It’s completely understandable to get frustrated with them and look online in order to find a suitable replacement for your Harbor Breeze touch screen remote control.
Generally these remotes can operate up to 40 feet from the fan. Also, one important note is that these remotes do not always work with flushmount fans. Keep this in mind.
Not all ceiling fans are compatible with this type of remote control, so you need to check and make sure before purchase that it is compatible or not.
The Harbor Breeze Waveport ceiling fan is a residential fan with a light kit. The light kit comes with the fan, so you do not need to buy a light kit for the fan. This fan has a size of 52 inches in terms of the fan blade size. The finish is a lovely bronze. The 52 inch blades are palm style blades, so they will make you feel like you are living in a tropical paradise…even if well, you aren’t. Are any of us? I suppose some people are. The light kit features a single light. Standard mounting type – downrod style mounting, so if you’re looking for a low profile fan with no downrod, you’ll need to look for another fan. The fan is damp rated as well. This means that it can be used on porches and patios, which is pretty darn cool – don’t you think?
The fan also comes with two 60 watt candleabra bulbs. On the fan, there is a motor warranty which is a limited lifetime warranty. All other parts on this fan have a 1 year warranty. The fan itself has three speeds. In terms of the warranty, it is good that there is a limited lifetime on the motor so you know that if there is a motor defect it will be replaced under warranty. Keep in mind warranties don’t cover people to come to your house and do the work, so a new part is always helpful but you may need to learn how to install the part yourself, or pay a contractor.
The Harbor Breeze Centreville fan is a 5 blade fan with reversible blades, and a blade span of 42 inches. The fan is specifically designed to be used in rooms with ceilings that are low. The motor on the fan is powerful, and quiet. It creates high airflow while not producing a lot of noise output. The fan features three speeds, and with the reverse function you can run the fan the entire year.
In terms of measuring and figuring out if this fan will work for the room you are thinking of, the height from the ceiling to the bottom of the Centreville fan is almost 14 inches – 13.94 inches.
If you’re having a problem with your ceiling fan remote, and you’ve read into what dipswitches are all about, then you’ve likely landed on this page. It is possible that your ceiling fan dipswitch is malfunctioning, or needs to be replaced. The first thing you need to understand about dipswitches with ceiling fans, is they are the programming between the remote and the receiver. Before even thinking about replacing dipswitch modules, you should ensure that they are set the same way on the remote as they are on the fan’s receiver module. The dip switch modules on either the receiver of the remote should be replaced as a very last resort.
Dipswitch modules may require replacement when you notice that they are no longer connected properly. Dipswitch modules have leads, where they are generally soldered into the receiver and the remote. Unless they are loose, they should not need to be replaced. It’s going to be a rare situation when you need to replace the dipswitches. With all of that being said, to replace dipswitches you will need to know how to solder. Dipswitches are generally soldered into the circuit board, much the same way as transistors or capacitors. The dipswitch module in itself is very inexpensive, and it’s not that difficult to solder another one in, as long as you know how to solder, desolder and check connections when you’re done.
What if I don’t know how to solder – how do I replace the dip switch?
If you’re not sure how to solder, or never done it before, you may want to consider replacing other components instead. E.g the remote can simply be replaced, and then make sure the ceiling fan dipswitch in the new remote is setup the same way as the dipswitches inside of the fan/receiver. Remotes are generally not too expensive. The cost of the remote of course is going to outweigh the few dollars you’d pay for a dipswitch. Dipswitches may be $5 or so, while remotes can be anywhere from $10-$50. It’s up to you to decide what remote you want, but also to ensure that the remote you purchase is compatible with your fan.
