Ceiling fan, reverse only


I am doing this for a neighbor.

He installed a ceiling fan, and it only runs in reverse only.

There is no switch to change direction, and wiring has been switched/reversed with no correction to rotation.

Did he maybe buy a fan that only pushes air upward, or is this a defect?

Two thoughts:

(1) Perhaps the switch is not in the same place as you are used to looking for it. Are there instructions for the fan? Can you call the manufacturer or go to the manufacturer's web site for support?

(2) Is there a remote control? Sometimes direction is controlled by the remote.
