Ceiling Fan Dimmers

You cannot, cannot, CANNOT use a dimmer switch on a ceiling fan motor. It could cause a fire and at the very least will destroy the fan or the switch. There are some solid state ceiling fan controls that appear very similar to a dimmer switch, however they cannot be used on most newer fans. See our Ceiling Fan Controls section. If you want to control a fan from the wall, you can purchase a 3 or 4 speed wall control, or a remote kit with a wall mounted control.

You can use a dimmer switch on a ceiling fan light if it is wired separate, is not using a remote, and is not using fluorescent bulbs. You cannot use a dimmer switch on a ceiling fan light if the fan has a remote. You cannot use a ceiling fan wall control, no matter the time, on a fan that has a remote. Failure to follow these guidelines will damage the fan/control/remote and can be a fire hazard.
