Dimmer switch on the Hampton Bay 249 872?

Separated from Hampton Bay Ventilation Fan Wiring

Is it possible to use a dimmer switch on the HB 249 872 and if so, what is the wiring sequence. Thanks

Welcome to the forums, Barry.

I've moved your post to a new thread to avoid confusing the answers to two different questions.

To answer your question, we'll need more information. Can you post a link to the installation instructions for this fan? I didn't find them when I searched. Also, how is your power for the fan wired and controlled? What switch(es) do you have now? Does the unswitched power from your panel come to the switch or the fan first? How are the switch location and the fan location connected?

One quick answer is that no fan can be controlled with a dimmer. The light built into a fan can be controled with a dimmer in certain conditions.
