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!!!

I HAVE A HAMPTON BAY MODEL AC-418 CEILING FAN. IT


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 fan unit itself is manufactured by AirCool 800-896-4908

Hampton bay is owned by home depot and to the best of my knowledge there are no repair centers for hampton bay fans. That bracket can be purchased (or ordered) from home depot. You could try searching "king of fans" online, they manufacture hampton bay fans for home depot.

Hampton Bay Ceiling fan wobbling


The fan came with one or more clips and some small weights that easily stick to the blade. Now with the clip you put it in one of the blades, starting from the far end and coming inwards, little by little. Try putting the clip in the middle of the fan and turn on the fan and see if it continues wobbling, if it continues wobbling try moving it to left and right and every time turn on the fan and see what happens. When you find the correct spot, there you glue the small weight.

Have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan that doesn't work.


I'm pretty sure that home depot does sell remotes for that brand, although you may have to buy a new receiver to go with it. Otherwise try a lighting store near where you live. They seem to be able to order things like that.

Need remotes


In theory, they should. Try Hampton Bay first, and if not, check for aftermarket replacements. Those remotes are simple enough that there is no reason that they can't.

Ceiling fan does not reverse with remote


Just reporting that I called Hampton Bay about the remote not working to reverse the fan. I was told that I needed to have the fan running on low and then press reverse on the remote control. If that doesn't work, customer service told me to press reverse while running the fan on medium. (Some fans are set to reverse on low and others on medium.) Nowhere in the manual is this addressed. I had been pressing reverse with the fan turned off, which seemed to me a logical thing to do. Live and learn.
