Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. White Redington III¿ Ceiling Fan w/ Remote Control & Light Kit

4 Answers

The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.

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 am assuming that the remote control is signaling the receiver in the fan. (My receiver sits atop the downrod and connects the house wiring to the fan wiring.) If I use an after market remote and matching receiver, would that control the fan speed and direction? My concern is being entirely dependent on the fan manufacturer staying in business and building that unique remote and receiver.

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.

    I ran separate Wires for the light fixture through the center of the fan. Takes patience, but I use a wall dimmer with LED fixtures.

If the fan has a pull chain then push the Hi button and then pull the chain until it's on high. Then don't pull the chain! If that's not your problem then check the capacitor in the fan.

Low and medium fan speed no longer works on our Hampton Bay fan when you pull the chain. The high speed works. Can this be fixed with a repair part?


the speed is controlled by a capacitor bank ... high speed uses no capacitors, low speed uses a small capacitor in series with the motor and medium speed uses a larger capacitor ... the pull chain switch selects which capacitor is used ... so if the capacitors go bad or if the switch fails to select them then you will not have low and medium speed ... so you could have a bad speed capacitor block or a bad switch or wiring that has come loose inside the fan (that connects the capacitors) .. all are replaceable .. i would first remove the covers from the fan and check all wire connections .. check the switch to see if it operates smoothly .. then suspect the capacitor block .. if you were an electrician then you could bypass the switch to test its function but if you are not then make sure power is off while working on the fan .. you should be able to get a new capacitor block from the manufacturer .. most are similar if they will phisically fit in the fan housing and have the same connectors ..

My hunter remote control ceiling fan doesn't go real fast. the highest speed is what a normal fan would do on medium. is there a fix?


if you have pull chain switches in addition to the remote control, your pull chain switch may be set to Medium, which would make the fan run on a maximum of medium speed.

Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed


It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

Casablanca fan speed problem


If this fan has a pullchain that also controls the fan speed, and you have a remote, the pullchain has to be set for the highest speed. If it is set at medium or low, it will mess with the remote operation. Note: usually high speed is the first pull after the "off" position.

1. Set the remote to run the fan on high.
2. Pull the fan speed chain until the fan reaches high speed.
3. All speeds should work normally now.
The remote is modulating the maximum speed as set by the pull chain.
