If this is a unit that is supposed to turn on when it's dark, then the problem is that the sensor is "seeing" too much of it's own light. That is, when it get's dark it turns on, but the light it provides is telling the unit that it is sunrise and should be turned off. Find the sensor and cover it with tape, this will keep the light on. Now try to figure out where the brightness is that the sensor "sees". It may be a reflection from a nearby white surface. You might be able to redirect the lights (if they are reflector bulbs), or you might be able to paint the reflecting surface a brighter color, or you might be able to fashion a visor out of tape to shade the sensor from the reflected light. Good luck!

Whether there is a reset switch on this unit or not would depend on the model. If you no longer have the owners manual you should be able to get it from the hampton web site. Many fans have a thermal fuse inline that probably was blown when the bulb broke. The cheaper models do not and then I would guess you burned out the switch.

Read the manual to find out which size bulbs (base size and wattage) you need.

If you did use the right type of bulb and it lasted only 2 weeks, take them back to the store where you boght them for a refund.

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 #.

Skill, patience, preseverance, and experience. You ned to cut and strip the wires so they "just fit" into the space provided leading to the connectyion screws. no room for stuffing , and no extra wiggle room for and bends or kinks .. You mightb try mounting the wires and then pushing the extra wire back up intio the ceiling junction box, thats what I do.

Can I replace the 13 watt CFL bulbs in my fan light fixture with a higher watt bulb


The bulb fixture itself should tell you what the max wattage is that you can put in there but they are normally at a 60watt limit.

Check the bulb(s) to make sure they are screwed in securely. If it happens only when the fan is on, there may be a loose wire up in the housing, where the light fixture attaches to the fan. Perhaps, a wire nut is loose. If the light and the fan switches are wall mounted separately, the wall switch for the light may be bad.

The problem is that the CFL lamps, once they are lit, will stay energized by a very low level of current, and the remote obviously is not what we would call a positive off device .. if you use the wall switch and then go back to the remote in the off position , do the lights come on flickering again? You could try another brand of remote.

Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Plastic Burning Smell


I think you have already figured out what the problem most likely is; 60 watt bulbs. Down-size the wattage or install 'energy saver' bulbs if they will fit the application. Instead of counting on these units for extra lighting, perhaps think about Track lighting to fill in those ares that need more but subtle light.
Good luck. :)

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
