Universal Remote Control
Minka Aire RC223
If you have a pull chain ceiling fan that you want to convert to remote control, you my be able to use a Minka Aire Universal Remote Control.
This type of universal remote has a receiver unit must be able to fit inside the canopy of the fan where it mounts to the ceiling.
Although there is no way of knowing 100% whether or not a universal remote control will work with your fan, the Minka Aire RC223 Universal Remote is
worth a try since it is not expensive and fits more fans than other brands. Keep in mind that if the control is NOT compatible with your fan, we will NOT accept a return if
an attempt to install it has been made. This is a risk that you will take if you want to try and convert a fan to remote control that was not
made specifically to accept this device.
Universal Fan Control
w/Canopy Mount Receiver
The Minka Aire RC223 Universal Remote Control shown to the left is compatible with
many standard pull chain operated ceiling fans and comes with a canopy mount receiver that is small and compact so it fits more fans that other universal remotes.
This is one of the more reliable remote controls on the market. Keep in mind that universal remote controls CANNOT reverse the direction of your fan rotation, that must be done manually from the switch that is on your fan (if your fan has a reverse switch). If you want a remote control that is capable of reversing your fan, it must be a control made
by the manufacturer of your ceiling fan and specifically for your model since special circuitry is required for a remote control to be able to reverse a fan.
This control is not compatible with most Casablanca, Hunter or Emerson ceiling fans. Please look for controls made specifically by these brands if you own one of their fans.
Important Information About Ceiling Fan Remotes
Remote Controls Made for Specific Fans
The search features on this page give you access to most of the controls made by the ceiling fan manufacturers that we carry. If you know the brand of fan you own and the specific control that you are looking for, you can use these resources to help you find your control. We do NOT sell controls for Hampton Bay ceiling fans (sold by Home Depot) or Harbor Breeze fans (sold by Lowe's) since they are house brands imported directly from China by these mass merchants. If you need a control for one of these brands, you will need to visit Home Depot or Lowe's respectively.
Finding a replacement remote for a fan that came with a remote control
If you own a fan that came with a remote control and the remote has stopped working or has been lost, you most likely cannot use a universal remote control.
You will need to find a replacement that was made specifically for your fan from the manufacturer that made your fan. If your remote has stopped working, you most likely
need to replace both the remote transmitter and the receiver inside the fan. Both components will have some type of model code on the back of the control or receiver or inside the battery compartment. These numbers are often useless when trying to find a replacement control because they are not specific to your model of ceiling fan. We suggest that you start by finding the brand name and model number of the fan first, which is usually located on the top of the fan motor. You can then use this information as a further resource to help you find the correct replacement
by contacting the manufacturer. If the fan you own is one of the brands you see on our website, we may be able to help you directly if you call us at: 1-800-201-1193.
