Fan and remote not working

Everything was working fine, but yesterday I went to turn on the fan and light using the remote control and Nothing. The light turns on with the main switch, as well as with the pull string, but not with the remote control. The fan does not seem to work at all. The remote control lights, but does not do anything anymore??????????????? I have 2 Hampton Bay Ceiling fans and both stopped working the same day! My remotes won't control the fans and lights. The fans are about a year old. One is the Easy Street collection and the other is tan with blades that spin in opposite directions. I tried new batteries, resetting the breakers... etc. Nothing! There were no power outages, no brown outs, nothing! They just both stopped working!

    I've had the fan for about 1 year. The fan and remote worked fine. Then the remote stopped working with the fan. The fan works and the remote red indicator light works but it does not control the fan. The remote unexplicably began to control the fan again after about 1 month of not working. I did nothing different. After several months the remote is off again. I've tried all the switches but nothing has made a difference.

SOURCE: remote lightswitch won't work.

This may be obvious but you may need to turn the light on with the string and leave it on. Then the remote should work. Sorry if this doens't work or is too simple.

Remote is not working and fan won't turn on


Take the fan down. Remove the blades, by pass everything, by cros wiring the fan using a plug in to see if the motor is working. If it works then you have a defective remote.

My light and fan combo has worked fine for the last three years or so. Yesterday when I went to turn on the lights, there was pop sound and my remote receiver was shorted out. What is going on?


I believe you answered your own question.  Shut the breaker off to the fan unit, and get a visual of the control module pcb.  If it looks repairable, have at 'er.  If it looks real bad, replacement may be your best option. http://www.eceilingfans.com/pc_boards_-_ceiling_fans.html If the price scares you, have another look at the one in your hand!

Fan and remote not working


If you haven't already done so, replace the remote's battery with a brand new one . Make sure the replacement battery is NEW AND UNUSED, AND WAS PURCHASED RECENTLY, SO IT IS FRESH. Make sure it is installed properly, making good electrical contact, and the proper polarity is observed. Was the remote dropped, sat on or stepped on? Was a liquid spilled on it? Did your pet chew on it? Are any of the buttons loose or stuck? If the remote seems ok, try removing 120 volt power from the fan by turning off the circuit breaker or fuse an your homes main electrical service box. Wait 30 seconds, then turn 120 volt power for the fan back on. This may reset the speed control in the fan unit. If it does not cure the problem, consult a professional electrician, or replace the fan, whichever is more cost-effective.










wait 30 seconds and turn 120

Ceiling fan remote not working


It is certainly possible that the remote went bad -- after all, it is an electronic device, and is was "made in China". With that said, there are other possibilities:

* The receiver, which is what receives the signals sent by the remote control, could have died. In most remote-controlled fans, the receiver is located in the ceiling canopy (the decorative part up by the ceiling, which hides the wires). In other fans, it's located in the switch housing (the part of the fan to which the light kit attaches). Solution: try everything else on this list; if nothing works, replace the receiver. Universal replacements for most models are available at Home Depot and Lowes.

* A wire on that receiver could have come loose. Solution: check all wires for secureness.

* A wire in your wall or ceiling -- the wire which provides power to the fan -- could have come loose or been chewed through by a rodent. Solution: use a circuit tester to check whether there's power at the connections at the top of the fan, in the ceiling, where the fan connects to the building's wiring.

* A circuit breaker could have tripped or a fuse could have blown. Solution: check your circuit breaker or fuse panel.

* The DIP switches inside the remote control -- which set the frequency on which the control transmits -- could have been knocked out of position accidentally or by a child playing with it. Solution: check the code on the DIP switches on the receiver in the fan -- then, make sure the remote control has its DIP switches set the exact same way.

If none of the above work, then yes -- the problem is with the receiver or the transmitter (remote). The two are typically sold as a pair, and universal replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowe's.

Hope that helps! Feel free to ask for clarification if you need it!
