Brand: Control Type:

Universal Remote Control

Minka Aire RC223
Universal Fan Control
w/Canopy Mount Receiver

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.

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.

    QUESTION: Re Ellington Monaco Ceiling Fan Model MON56GB5CWR: Is it possible to mount this fan in a room with an 8'' ceiling? Can the drop rod be cut down to about 2" - 4"? What is the bare minimum ceiling-to- blade distance possible with modification?

    ANSWER: The Ellington Monaco ceiling fans come with a 12" downrod. This length is necessary in order to install the fan with the decorative scroll that is attached to the top of the fan body. This puts the fan blades at 19 1/2" from the ceiling. Building codes require the blades to be at least 7 feet from the floor, so you cannot install the Monaco on an 8 foot ceiling. Even if the downrod was 6" shorter, the blades would still be more than 1 foot from the ceiling. Therefore, the Monaco ceiling fan must be installed on a ceiling that is at least 8 feet 7 inches high.

    Ceiling Fans Question - Ellington Model SBF58AN5LKRCR2

    QUESTION: We really like this fan (Ellington Surfboard Fan Ceiling Fan Model SBF58AN5LKRCR2), but are not crazy about the light fixture it comes with. Can you tell me if this would be possible to change? Looking at your ceiling fan light section, we really like model K4M - would it be possible to do something similar with this style fan? Thanks!!

    ANSWER: The Ellington Surfboard ceiling fans have a light fixture that is built-in to the bottom of the fan. There is no way to change the light fixture or install it without the light. Also, there truly is no other surfboard ceiling fan like this, so if your dislike for the included light fixture is not overcome by the unique surfboard style of the fan, then this may not be the fan for you. Otherwise, surfs up!

    QUESTION: Is it possible to link multiple fans to the same switch?

    ANSWER: You can run multiple fans from a single is very common, particularly with industrial fans such as the Ellington Utility fan. However, the more fans you run from the switch, the more amps the switch must be rated to accommodate. So you need to make sure the switch you use is rated for the amount of fans you run on it...there are limitations.

    QUESTION: We have one of your 42 inch units that looks about the same as the one above. It was bought from a third party through EBay. The blades were made up from this supplier with Scar Face on the four blades. Upon checking the box the unit came in we noticed that the main bracket was missing. This is the one that attaches to the ceiling box. I have contacted this supplier about a month ago and he told me that he found it on his work bench and was going to mail it out to me. Never did.

    ANSWER: The question the fan the exact same brand and model. Pretty much every brand makes a fan that looks like this is a commodity. However, each brand makes their mounting hardware differently and they are not normally interchangeable. It is also unlikely that the bracket for this type of fan will be sold separately by most manufacturers because these are very low end fans and they keep the cost down by not bearing the cost of stocking parts for them. You might also find that the part will cost you more than the person you bought the fan from charged you for the fan by the time you pay for shipping and such. Anyway, find the brand and model number then get back to me and I will see what I can do.

    ANSWER: Ellington does not have any galvanized blade options, so the answer would be no. I am not aware of any ceiling fan brand that offers galvanized blades on a traditional ceiling fan.
