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.

Motor will barely run


If it's when you set the remote on med or high, check to make sure the switch on the fan isn't set on low. Turn the remote to high and pull the chain switch to see if it goes faster. Someone may have tried to turn it on or off with the chain, forgetting about the remote. Good luck.

I have a ceiling fan with remote, remote will not turn fan on high, how can i fix this


The fan probably has manual pullcord switches - one for the light and the other for fan on/off/speed. The fan control pullcord needs to be at maximum setting.

Switch the fan on using the remote. Then set it to high using remote.

Now use the pullcord switch (probably cycles through off, low, medium, high, off with each pull). Set it at its fastest speed, and leave it there.

You should now be able to select highest speed from the remote.

Happy to try to help more if that does not work.

Altura 68" fans will not operate on high speed.


I jtoo, ust bought The Altura (68" fan from home depot)
Home depot makes hampton bay through various chinese manufacturers.................
The fan ran slow on high speed, and barely ran on medium or low.
home depot gave me a number for their tech department that knew right away.....that the capacitor(s) are defective in many of the Altura fans.
They are sending the capacitors in 3 days to me no charge.
They are located under the fan ( remember the white square plastic plug you had to connect and the 2 wires for the optional light kit?.....)That plug is for the capacitors that everyone is having a problem with.
My guess is they are under rated for a fan that big and are sending better ones to those with problems.
Hope this helps.

High speed only 60rpm


I too just installed a 68" Altura and noticed a huge difference in fan speed. I spoke to a rep for the manufactorer and found out that the high, medium, and low rpms are 70, 45, and 25. The typical 52" fan has rpm speeds of 190, 130, and 75. The kicker is airflow. The 68" moves 7,808, 4,417, and 2,953 cfms on high, medium, and low; the 52" fans move 5,503, 4,087, and 2,509 cfms.
