hi guys

can advise kdk ceiling fan V56VK, cannot on off and control the fan speed using remote. Checked remote control, it is working fine power. I like to try repair myself, anyone knows how to fix it? Thank you.
Easiest fix is to replace with a new PCB. This model usually doesn't have any issues with remote response.

If you want to experiment, can try changing the IR receiver on the existing pcb.

The fan other functions (eg.lamp) does response to the remote control. Just that it cannot off and change fan speed from the remote.

The problem is happened past night, but this morning is working fine again.

By the way, where to find a new pcb?

hi any advice if my ceiling only has space of 1.5m width ( due to presence of 2 load bearing beams ), can i still fix a small ceiling fan ( maybe the 36" one ) ?

Just replaced some old AC KDK ceiling fans with their DC models (T60AW) - $388 per pop, including installation. Decided not to faff around doing a manual install for some savings and just got the store installers in to do all of them. Quick and efficient.

The DC ones are really leaps and bounds better than the AC ones.

Hi guys, does anyone know if it's possible to integrate Alexa / app control with a 2.4G remote controlled fan? I have a Crestar ceiling fan using a KG31 remote control that's using 2.4G for signal. Is there any sort of product that's similar to a normal IR / RF blaster to control my ceiling fan?

Purchase or order from JB. The Sg models are a waste of money. Exact same thing for double the price. Regret my initial purchase of the Sg kdk as I wasn't aware of the price difference.

I thought its a standard that only under fan would we feel the wind..?
Some of the old metal blade fans you can feel the wind all over the room.

Nowadays most of them only feel directly below. But the popular kdk dc motor models for whatever reason, the spread is poor even for the 60 inch fan. Step out a mere 30 cm from fan radius, only can feel wind at the feet even at max speed.

Think most lighting shops carry it. I bought from a shop called yes electrical supply.You could also take Panasonic as it is identical to kdk other than branding but around 50 -100rm cheaper.
