It seems the the remote has lost its connection to the fan unit. The battery is still good (I tested it in another remote) and the LED lights when I press a button. Is there a way to reset the connection? Thanks.

Re: Lost conection between fan and remote
There seems to be a problem with the upper part of these remote controls. They work for a while and go out. I have replaced 5 for people in the last 3 months. The store where most of these were purchased gave me new fan, and let me bring back the parts that were bad. I did not have to assemble another fan, just change the bad receiver on the remote. I hope they work as well with you. I think they know there is a problem with them.

If your Kichler ceiling fan appears to have lost touch with the remote, try the usual routine of removing batteries from the remote, pressing all buttons to eliminate a stuck button as the cause, then reinstalling the old batteries (or new batteries) and testing operation. If no luck, disconnect power at the source, not the fan, pause briefly (to "reset" the fan control) and reconnect power to test operation. If still no luck, the remote receiver in the fan or the remote itself may be defective.
You remote is working fine but for the control on the light switch. If teh fan is switched on and off then the communication is good enough and the remote and the main unit is communicating. Hence remove the remote control and clean the pads of the light button. Dry up if possible and if there is a carbon track, the you can use a carbon pen to make up the lost track, or if the pad has lost the carbon pad then stick one conductive pad so that the circuit is activated. I hope you try this out. Good day
Well you can purchase a universal remote in place of your lost remote. You need to connect the universal remote to your fan, universal remotes have a code search button or sequence. Turn on your fan, activate code search, & press the power button until the appliance turns off, then press the set button. or use the manual book provided by the universal remote manufacturer.
The beep comes from the receiver in the fan hub. If no beep, I would suspect the receiver is not responding to the remote.
Reasons could be:
- loose connections to/from receiver or,
- with bad luck, the receiver could have failed already (loose conections could cause premature receiver failure) or,
- the fan pull-chain switch is off -- your scenario does not allow for the chain being pulled during the 5 hours the fan was not run, but who knows... or,
- receiver/remote are out of synch (set on different frequencies). Are there dip switches in receiver/remote to set frequency, or is the frequency set by the remote with a combination of button pushing? If the latter, maybe the frequencies for the two are were accidentally set out of synch...
