Hello forum,

I have a ceiling fan with a remote control. The battery dies too quickly. There is only one IC in the little circuit board. I would like to understand where the issue is.
Can I do that with a voltmeter? But where would I look? What approach? Where would I measure the voltage to troubleshoot it?

Thanks,

Unfortunatly I doubt there is much you will be able to do. It is probably just a poorly designed product. I would reach out to the manufacturer and ask for a replacement.

Thank you.
It does not seem a complicated device.....maybe something is drawing current and discharging the battery too fast...
hard to tell.

thanks
