Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. 5-Blade Fan, Aged Wood/Gold, French Scavo

1 Answer

Fan running & stops then goes the opposite direction

This fan was in the house when we purchased it. It is a Hampton Bay fan with a remote and a wall switch to activate it. The unit frequently stops going in the direction it is set for and starts going in the opposite direction. The remote will only operate the light function ( On, Off, Dim) and also the direction of the motor but will not operate the on or off of the fan.

Your Hampton Bay combo probably was installed incorrectly. A frequent cause of erratic operation is a conflict between the remote control and the wall switch.

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.

SOURCE: Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan At Slow Speed

I recently replaced my hampton bay fan for the same reason (slow at all speeds) and discovered scorched and melted capacitors and wiring inside the fan. My suggestion is to stop using fan and replace immediately.

SOURCE: hampton bay fan, wall mount remote control

Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.

Hampton bay fan model 761 567 running faster on


Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The receiver is located in the upper portion of the housing for the fan motor. Look for a semi-circular black control box (usually manufactured by Rhine)

How do I reverse the direction of the fan blades to counter-clockwise on the fan? The fan is a Hampton Bay ''Clarington'' with a remote control.


There is a small black switch on the switch housing directly under the blades. When the fan is completely off, move the switch to the opposite direction.

Can a remote control be installed on the Huntington III?


Yes you can operate them with two styles of remotes: either the remote wall switch, or a hand held remote. Both require the receiver to be mounted above the top of the fan in the base it is wired to. The receiver has wires on both sides; the one side wires directly to the house wires, and the other goes to the fan and light. They are both sold at Home Depot and Lowes. The ones at Home Depot also include the set made by the fan manufacturer.

Hampton Bay ceiling fan - will not reverse


It sounds like the direction switch has a broken connection on the "reverse" side.  Should be an easy fix (but you might need a soldering iron).

HOW TO CHANGE DIRECTIONS OF BLADES ON HAMPTON BAY MODEL #70226


There is a switch on the side of the fan motor housing. Slide it the opposite way to reverse it. Make sure you wait until the fan comes to a complete stop to do so. Never reverse it while it is running, you could overload the motor and ruin it.

I believe they don't put the reversing switch on any remotes for that very reason.

I have this fan with the remote. The top right-hand switch on the remote says fwd/rev and that does, in fact, reverse the direction of the blades. The manual says to make sure the fan is still moving when you press this switch or it won't reverse direction.
