Hampton Bay remote for ceiling fan caused an electrical fire

I had a Hampton Bay celing fan remote Model 191-651 from Home Depot. I was working on pllumbing in the master bath and hear a hiss, crackle, and then the unmistakable short circute of electrical in my bedroom. I came out of the bathroom and found flames coming from the ceiling fan. Fortunately I am not only a fulltime Capt on the fire department I was a license electrican. The fire was contained within the fans bonnit and just a little scorching of a ceiling joist. Had I not been home at the time I certenly would have lost my home. Has there been any other fires caused by the Hampton Bay remotes? O' I should also mention that I am a certified Fire Investigator. I am also going to give my findings to UL.

    I also work in the fire department full time and haven't run into any fires of this nature. Any idea where within the bonnet the fire originated? The control box for the remote perhaps? Any possibility that the plumbing work knocked something loose in the fan or eliminated a ground path that was being used by the fan (such as a copper cold water pipe in older construction)?

We just installed this fan and within 1 day the electrical wires in the receiver burned and would have caught fire had it not been caught!!!

Will a universal remote work to unlock my Sinotec tv cause it shows key-lock and my original remote is broken.


Sorry
to unlock this TV, it's original remote control needed. Just buy one. Contact the authorized service center for Sinotek. No universal remote control will go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

I have a Samsung vcr but no remote. How can I download a program to my iPad that will work as a remote?


You can't, it is impossible. Your iPad has no infra red emitter on it. Things that work from iPad to television, do so via the home network to the smart tv which is also on the network. VCRs were years away from that technology.

Unplug the power then hold the power button down and plug the unit in again to reset it. If not this is probably a component fault.
