Question about Hampton Bay B52852WPB Redington III White and Brass Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Lights are now dim.......

I installed a ceiling fan about 2 months ago. I also installed one of your remotes for the fan. Then the other day the lights started only getting half power. The fan has full power, and the other items using the same electrical are fine. I can not figure out why the lights are dim now. The fan only has one switch for the lights, either on or off. If you can help me solve this problem I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Aside from a wiring fault upon installation that may be creating a small short, or interference from the fan motor, have you tried fixing the cheap parts? I.E. changing the lightbulbs out for a different set, or different types? Try using flourescent bulbs in place of your normal incandescent bulbs. Also, what wattage are you using? Your fan unit may have a limitation on wattage, or may only be throughputting a certain wattage due to a wiring problem. Does your fan have an energy saver setting?

mcdevito75 here, On the fan you hear, carefully turn the blades by hand just a little and see if they start up on there own. These motors are sealed units and maybe the oil is a little thick from non-use. If the baldes don:t start up, Then I would replace the fans.

Hunter ceiling fan (model no. 25736) and light not starting


Home Depot sells universal remote systems (transmitter and receiver) for around $30 (in Delaware & Pennsylvania) -- don't know price in Chicago).

I'd just replace it. Hunter may be correct that they are the only source for the receiver, but if you get a new transmitter as well, you don't need their receiver. The labor is the same either way.

make sure you have the remotes/receivers set to different jumpers. I installed 2 fans and had the same problem, just had to change the jumpers on one of the fans and the corresponding remote

HB ceiling fan is getting slower and slower bi the day


Solid-state controls change the level of power in the fan motor to control the speed of the fan. For instance, when you switch from medium to high on a solid-state fan, the speed control mechanism increases the power of the motor. Solid-state controls are generally equipped in fans with controls that have predetermined settings, such as low, medium and high.
The solid state device in or around the fan motor could be defective and in need of replacement.

Hunter fan/light with remote installed turns on by itself


Many times this is caused by stray frequencies in the neighborhood. And, sometimes changing the frequencies on the remote and receiver reduce the occurrence.

But it sounds like this may not be the case, here. If not, the receiver in the fan is the culprit and should be replaced. No danger, just annoying.

Bulbs burning out in Hampton Bay ceiling fan


I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.

Fan is Erratic


Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.

Your voltage is probably too low, probably a bad wire or source. Let me know if it worked.
