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

1 Answer

Wall switches do not control fan

I have 3 Hampton Bay remote ceiling fans UC703T. The remotes work, but not the wall switches. How do i get the fans to work from the wall switches. I'm tired of looking for the remotes.

    Are the wall switches remote? Or do they simply turn them off and on?

Some fans will not operate without the remote, however, I'm not sure if the Hampton Bay brand is one of these or not. Below is how you will bypass the remote if the fan will operate without the remote.

You can try disconnecting the receiver in the canopy of the van (the cover that fits snug to the ceiling) once you have shut off the power source remove the canopy and find the remote receiver.

Most likely it will be a rectangular box with white, black, and blue or red wires attached. Disconnect all wires from the receiver and lay it to the side.

Now reconnect the wires directly to the fan, white to white, black to black, if you have a red wire (or a second black wire) in the ceiling box connect it to the blue wire from the fan.

If you do not have a red wire (or second black wire) in the ceiling box, connect the black and blue wire from the fan to the single black wire in the ceiling box. This method will require you to pull the chain to operate the fan separately.

The wall switch has to be in the on position for the remote to work. What make/model of fan do you have? Probably needs a new receiver.

mcdevito75 here, If the thermostatic switch was controlling another ceiling fan then yes it should work, it"ll have to hook up to the wall switch. I'd double check with a hardware store in the area for more advise.

The problem may not be with the fan, but with the wall switch. Try changing the wall switch and see if that works, sometimes they go bad.

The dip switch is on the receiver box which is located inside the housing on the ceiling, inside the remote control, and inside the wall switch if you have a wall switch made to control the fan.  All must have the same dip switch settings.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
