Setting Automatic Frequency Code

Light and fan work when using the on/off switch. However, we can not get the adjustable controls to work. When setting the automatic freqency code it does not seem to work as noted in the manual. What we did: Turned light on, after long beep can short beeps, pushed one of the buttons on the wall control. Problem: Second series of short beeps does not stop. Help!

Use the canned air to remove dust from the motor. While in truck, the dust in truck came to the motor.

Remote control not working

Dear Sir/madam,

Check these steps........

1. Adjusting the dip switches:
Each fan/remote combination is set to work on a specific frequency, much like tuning in a specifc radio station. Some fans allow you to set this frequency by means of a set of small switches called "dip switches". There is one set located inside the remote, and the other set would be position on the fan, with the remote receiver electronics. This would be either on top of the motor, or inside the switch housing or ceiling canopy. These switches "tune" the remote and fan (received) to the same "station" and therefore must be set to the same setting. If a fan is not responding to the remote you can check to make sure that the switches are set to the same setting in both locations, and/or try a different setting. They are also useful if you have two remote fans, you will want to be sure each fan is set different so the remotes do not interfere. Lastly, if some other wireless device is interfering with the fan (causing it to turn on and off seemingly at random) such as a garage door opener or cordless phone, you can try a different setting on the dip switches.
2. Universal remotes:
If your fan remote is lost or broken, many suppliers, including this web site, offer a universal remote designed to work with the majority of different remote operated ceiling fans. Many are also universal for operating televions etc so you can control all your leisure and comfort devices from one unit.
3. Replacement parts:
Unfortunately, outside of Universal remotes, general replacement parts are not available for remote control systems. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer.
3a. Repair:
Also unforunately, most problems with remote controls cannot be repaired outside of what is suggested above. If you have problems, contact the manufacturer, perhaps the fan is under warranty, or parts are available. Otherwise chances are the fan will stay broken.
4. Converting to 3 speed:
One common question: My fan's remote is broken, can I just convert it to a 3 speed pullchain like other fans? Again unfortunately, if you have to ask the question, then chances are the answer is no. It can be done but there are no universal directions, it varies drastically from fan motor to fan motor, and requires a fair amount of technical and electronic skill. A few exceptions: If the fan has a "remote bypass" switch you can select it and then use a wall control (or pullchain if there is one attached to the fan). Or . . .
5. Add-on remote kits
Some fan remote systems are not built into the fan, they were an option added by the installer at an additional cost. Usually they consist of a remote receiver wired to the fan inside the ceiling canopy, and the fan will still have a pullchain that is not used. If this is the case then the receiver can be removed and replaced with another remote/receiver kit, or the fan can be operated as standard with the 3 speed pullchain.

good luck

Ceiling fan lights & fan come on without using remote

on some you set a code in the remote control ..then you teach that code to the control unit ..on others you have to set dip switches on the remote control and on the fan to match .. some of the units have dip switches on the top of the fan motor housing ..some have code setting switches on the control unit located inside the fan .. at any rate the fan and remote have to have matching codes ..
here is some information on some units

sometimes the switches are set correctly but the contacts get dirty .. so on the remote, behind the batteries is the code switches .. you can operate each one a few times to clean them ... remember where they are set ... set them back that way unless you are going to change the switches on the module in the fan ... you can check your neighbors remote to see if its on the same setting .. if so one of you has to change dip switch settings on both the fan and remote.. on some older units the code is fixed on the receiver in the fan .. the code is marked on its box .. that code has to be set into the remote unit and is not adjustable ..

this might be the mfg for the hampton bay fans might be a little help

I have 21 ceiling fans in my house.

Three suggestions (maybe not viable solutions):
1. Consider creating ceiling fan "groups". A group is a set of fans that is controlled by one remote.
Group: All (or some) in all vaulted ceilings.
Group: All hallways
Group: Outdoor celing fans
Power OFF ceiling fans at the wall switch that are not used often. Those can have duplicate codes.
If the remote controls are iR (infrared) rather than RF (Radio frequency), then the ceiling fans that are farthest apart or have more solid walls in between, can have the same codes and not be affected by the "wrong" remote.

Fan light is turning itself on

Oh i remember my first ceiling fan and the midnight wake ups. lol. Easy easy fix. You are getting radio interference from some other source. Take the fan back down and in the remote as well as the reciever you can change the codes (refer to your owners manual) Some have switches you can move others have plastic clips you can add or remove. In any case it doesn't matter which code you change it to as any other code should solve your problem. Good luck, hope you sleep better afterwards.

Mind of it's own

your remote and fan is set to someone elses frequency by little toggle switches
you will have to remove fan to where it hangs make sure power off
find the remote sensor inside electric case at ceiling in the fan
this is a dip switch to control frequencies

09c4f2f.jpg you will see something like this adjust the dip switches
means change the dip switch for fan
then on remote open the remote battery pack find the dip switch in there
change those dip switches to the same as in ceiling fan
put fan together and turn back on power
your fan should now not pick up the other frequency of another remote and they have a span of about 50 yards to pick up frequencies

Hampton bay fans

inside the remote, and inside the transmitter above the fan there are 4 tiny keys that set the frequency. set each frequency different then the remotes will only operate that fan. However if two lights r on and one off, when u turn the switch off they all go off, and when u turn it back on the same ones should come on. Then label the remotes!!!
