Re: Ceiling fan not working, but light is OK

Yes Gerry, fan was switched on (the light was lit), also pulled the fan on/off cord a few times just to be sure.

Re: Ceiling fan not working, but light is OK

Hi gerryh Thanks for your test information; the fan rotates manually freely in both directions, but the motor doesn't kick in, so it looks like it could be the capacitor. With the help of my friend senor Google Translate, I'll go back to the shop in Torre del Mar where I saw a similar fan yesterday,...

Quote possibly it's the start capacitor rather than the motor. They can be replaced fairly easily.
...but I guess you've got to know someone who knows how do that. Any suggestions from your location up to Competa or down to the coast at Torre del Mar?

Re: Ceiling fan not working, but light is OK

I purchased our original fan from B and Q in the uk 20 years ago. It packed up about 2 years ago and I found one almost identical in El Corte Ingles with same fittings etc. The only difference was the light on the new one didn't have a dimmer on it. I saw an identical one to ours in a shop in Torre...

Re: Ceiling fan not working, but light is OK

Thanks costakid, I figured that it would probably be a new one (or two).

Ceiling fan not working, but light is OK

Does anyone know if it's possible to have the fan motor repaired or replaced in a ceiling fan and light combo? We have two identical units in the room, one works fine - lamp lights, fan rotates in both directions but the other one, only the light works, so it looks as if the fan motor is kaput. As t...

Re: Coronavirus

Hi Enrique Yes, it's a full booking. I guess that you are correct that BF would issue the forms, nothing yet from them online though. They do have a helpful "Together and Protected" page on their site which sets out what they have done and are doing to keep passengers and crew safe, including a shor...

Sorry, I misunderstood and thought it was a response to my enquiry about forms to enter Spain.
Apologies.

Brittany Ferries has just confirmed that sailings will resume from 29 June, so at last, we should be coming to Spain. Hooray! The three checks at the port of arrival have been publicised (temperature check, visual check and completion of a form to show where we are staying), but I can't find anywher...

Re: Easyjet

I also think that Virgin has a nerve asking the UK Government for a bailout due to coronavirus, yet as I recall, they vehemently objected to any government support at all for FlyBe which went bust at the start of the crisis.

Re: Spanish Postal Service

My package which had been held in the Madrid Logistics Centre since 31 March, suddenly started its journey south yesterday morning 21 April and was delivered and signed for in Torrox at 1926 the same day.

Re: Spanish Postal Service

Just to add to the list of stories, on 27 March, I posted a small jiffy bag in the UK by Royal Mail Tracked and Signed For service to be delivered to a friend in Torrox. Normally this would take about 5 or 6 days, including the weekend. On 31 March at 2139 it arrived in Madrid where it was "classifi...

Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

Good afternoon Beachcomber Many thanks for your detailed reply and explanation; I understand now your cautionary notes within your "Form 210 instructions" document and that very small mistranslation of "and" to "or", which changes the context of this piece of text significantly. I bow to your expert...

Question for Beachcomber please. Over the years I have followed your instructions and created forms 210 and paid our imputed income tax. I now need to pay tax due for 2019. We sold our house on 3 June 2019 and as per your instructions " During the year of purchase or sale you declare pro rata for th...
