Are these universal for any ceiling fan/light? (the IR receivers of our BULLIT one broke) – via: Home Theater Discussions And Reviews

Bullit ceiling fan with light.

We have two “Bullit” ceiling fans with built-in dimmable lights. Both of them started to malfunction after about 10 years of usage, about a year apart.

They are really nice, both in looks and build quality (heavy duty electric motor, cast aluminium block, screws nicely hidden away).

So this weekend, I took the canopy apart and found out that the receiver device that processes the infra-red signal has broken: it does not pass on the incoming current to either the light or the fan engine.

That receiver part looks like this (handheld is on the right):

  • bottom: 3 incoming wires (Phase, Earth, Neutral),
  • top: 3 outgoing wires (Phase Fan, Phase Light, Neutral),
  • connector for IR sensor
  • Connector to wire Earth to aluminium body

I came across a Westinghouse GS–26-78095-WH08 model. The image is below

Is that a universal replacement for many ceiling fan/light devices?
