Can I Use Quick-Disconnect Terminals To Wire A Ceiling Fan Remote Receiver

I'm installing a ceiling fan with a remote control and wonder if it is ok to use fully insulated Quick-Disconnect Terminals for the small stranded wires going from the remote control receiver in the fan canopy to the fan wiring?

The terminals are rated for 300 volts and 167 degrees.

Why would you if you mean after market connectors not included ones. Just use the correct size wire nuts.

Just to make an easier connection than using wire nuts under a small fan canopy.

They actually will take up a little more room than wire nuts plus need to be installed with a crimp tool but it's ok to use them there.

But not necessarily the included wire nuts. They often have no spring in side. Use real Wire Nuts. Yellow should be fine.
