Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. White Redington IIIÂ¿ Ceiling Fan w/ Remote Control & Light Kit
There are no manual controls, no pull chain off, low, medium, high speed; no switch for fan direction. Everything is controlled by the remote. It appeared that if the remote or receiver in the fan failed the fan would be useless unless you could find another remote and receiver. On looking on Ceiling Fan Company sites I saw that they sold remote control devices that controlled speed, light and fan direction also. The receiver looks identical to the one in the Altura fan. I am assuming that most fan companies do not go around reinventing the wheel. Are the remotes and receivers they use relatively the same and could they be swapped from one fan to another. Also, would it be possible to retrofit manual controls within a fan without manual controls.
I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.

You can hard wire this fan to 1 or 2 switches, bypassing the remote unit entirely. NOTE: You will only have 1 fan speed and no light dimmer. Set the fan at the desired speed and direction using the remote system PRIOR to hardwiring. The fan will remember the speed and direction.
Connect your house wiring directly to black and white (and blue if lighting is required) wires. With a 2 switch system, your third house wire should be red. Connect the blue fan wire to the red house wire.
Your 2 switches will now separately operate the fan and light functions. As stated earlier, you will only have 1 fan speed and will be unable to change the direction, so set your desired speed and direction before you rewire.
Hope this help!

Hi, I just installed 4 of these fans an absolutely love them. My house came pre-wired and I wanted a wall control for them. I have found that the Tommy Bahama wall control TBSW02 works perfectly with the receiver that comes with the Fan (you just need that wall control unit, not a Tommy Bahama receiver). There are several rebranded versions of this wall controller but I think they are just Emersons with different logos on the face plate.
My only problems with the fan are the excessive humming (on all 4 even just using the stock remote and a regular wall switch) and the lights don't dim, just turn on and off (even with the fan hardwired using the stock remote that came with it). If someone has any fix suggestions for those I would appreciate it.
