Lost my remote can i buy a new one for my ceiling fan


If you have the receiver in the canopy, then yes. You probably have to replace the receiver & transmitter .

My Hampton Bay ceiling fan runs only on high speed and the remote has stopped working even after changing the batteries. Does Hampton Bay have a life time warranty?


Yes, look up www.hamptonbay.com and get their contact number from them. It sounds like your transmitter (Remote) has failed. If it were the receiver the fan would most likely not work at all.

Reciever won't fit installing Hampton Bay Midili 44 in fan


I had the same problem. Instruction manual is awful. Doesn't mention anything about how to fit the huge yellow receiver either into (a) the mounting bracket or in (the canopy.
After numerous meltdowns, I finally figured it out. Instead of running the live wires through the center of the mounting bracket, run them on the side. The mount bracket to ceiling. If you try to run them through center, you will probably run out of room, and the Receiver will not fit. Once mounted, drop the pin into the mount and turn it until it locks into position.
Next, slide the Receiver in the tight space at top the pin, and just below top of mounting bracket. It will *barely* fit. Then connect all your wires with the wire nuts. Wrap in electrical tape just to be extra careful.
I could *not* get my wires to push up into the ceiling box because the Receiver was blocking the entrance. So I tucked them on the sides, and then lifted the canopy up and finished the installation. All the wires were hidden inside the canopy.
Hope that helps. And hope you haven't lost your mind yet.
God forbid they explain how to instal the receiver, or include a battery.
Hampton Bay = Idiots.

Hampton bay ceiling fan (7030T) remote does not work.


This symptom is usually caused by either a bad receiver or bad transmitter. Install a new remote system (receiver & transmitter).

Hampton Bay 60" Brookedale fan remote not working


The Remote (TRANSMITTER) control AND the RECEIVER must both be set to the same CODE in order for the REMOTE to operate the fan.
!!WARNING!! YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICITY ZONE!!
The RECEIVER is located in the CANOPY, the part of the fan assembly next to the ceiling which is also called the Hanger Bracket.
At the bottom of the Canopy you will see what looks like a large flat washer. Rotate the washer counter-clock wise to release it.
Then rotate the Canopy counter-clock wise to release and lower it. You will see the RECEIVER, which will have a short antenna at one end, tucked in among the electrical wire and bracket. Simply pull the RECEIVER out and you will see the CODE switches. Remember to set both devices to the same CODE.
Good luck. :)

Wall switches do not control fan


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.

HAMPTON BAY CEILING FAN MODEL # UC7067RC


I have a solution for you. Call 1-866-600-FANS(3267) and give them the numbers on the side of the receiver. Example: 7067FM-22 (6+5) Variations of this receiver are used by many different manufacturers including Hampton Bay,Emerson,Minka Aire, etc... There is a web site that shows a few examples of this receiver available. http://www.fanmanlighting.com
P.S. It helps to know if your Ceiling Fan has a 2nd light above the fan or reverses direction from the transmitter.

Windworld III has mind of its own -- light comes on any time it likes fan changes speed


This sounds like one of the most common problems with Hampton Bay's remote-contolled fans...either the transmitter (remote control) or the receiver (mounted in the fan, typically inside the ceiling canopy) has gone haywire. A circuit has blown or something is short-circuited, and it has a mind of it's own. The only fix is to replace the receiver and transmitter, which are relatively cheap and sold as a pair at your local Home Depot and Lowes.

Hope that helps! If you ave any other questions, feel free to ask!

It slides in above right above the ball, in the mounting bracket where the canopy is. You may have to kind of encourage it to go in there, and you will need to push wiring off to the sides and out of the way to help it have clearance to get in there.
