Remote replacement

I would like to replace a standard three speed remote with a Thermostatic type.  Do I need to replace the receiver in the fan as well or just set new sender to current code?

My name is Tom, known here in the community as HD116. Thermostatic remotes are a great way to help control energy costs and make homes more comfortable.


While most I have seen operate on dip switches, I am not certain about compatibility with your ceiling fan. Your new thermostatic remote will come with a receiver that is to be mounted in the fan housing. I would try to see if the remote will work with the existing receiver before switching it out, but feel it is unlikely. I think the exception would be if the remote manufacturer is the same.


Hope that helps.

i have a ceiling fan I inherited with the house with a bum remote.  I do not see any dip switches and am looking for a remote that will work some other way.  Could I use a thermostat remote on a ceiling fan?  Thanks!
