Hi all - I bought the LZW36 after the existing remote in my fan died inexplicably. The remote controls both the light and the fan and had 5 speed options + reverse.
When I took it down, however, I found myself confused as to how to connect the inovelli module to the fan itself.
The old remote module had 5 wires going into the body of the fan: a Black, While and Gray, all labeled “for motor” and Blue (Load) and Orange (Neutral) labeled for the Light Kit.
The Load and Neutral for the light kit are pretty self-explanatory, but I’m having trouble making sense of the three wires for the motor.
I tried connecting the white and orange wires from the fan to the white wire from the control unit, to the neutral from the ceiling to no avail. I also tried including the gray wire in that bunch as well - still nothing.
The thing that made me most nervous was that the motor ‘growled’ but never actually spun once I turned the power back on.
