Check your remote control using a camera or cellphone camera as your eyes. Point the remote control transmitter to the camera and "on " the remote control. A light should emit in the remote control. If no light is present then the remote is not transmitting or defective.But if the remote emits light then the indoor receiver is defective. And try also the reset or rst button if available in your remote control, just press it and try the remote.

The remote batteries could be defective or installed incorrectly. Try removing the batteries, pressing all buttons to eliminate the possibility of a stuck one, reinstalling batteries and testing operation. If no operation, the remote may have failed or there could be failure at the wall unit.

If you have a digital camera or phone camera - check there is a light flashing from the end of the remote where you 'aim' the remote - if not the remote LED has failed - if it flashes the receiver or indoor board of the air con could be faulty - if you have vermin around they could also have eaten through communication wires - good luck

You can here a click but remote does not operate fan or light

If you haven't changed all the batteries in the remote controlled system, now is the time to do so. Keep in mind, there is a battery(s) in the hand held remote and in the receiver inside the cowling of the fan.
When changing batteries, ALL batteries should be changed at the same time.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

If you only change the battery in the hand-held remote, there should be another one in the fan housing that also needs changing. Always change all the batteries at the same time.

I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan that is operated on a remote. The remote will no longer communicate with my fan. How do I get it back?

if the batteries are new in the remote and no one changed the dip switch settings in the fan or on the remote if available then it is possible you do not have power at the fan is a breaker tripped if not then it is possible the sensor unit or remote has gone bad this usually can be purchased at the hardware store you will need some electrical knowledge to install let me know if this helps

My FEDDERS air conditioning/ heating through the wall unit won't respond to my remote - the batteries are new and the screen on the unit won't change from " E2 ". Perhaps it is related with the snow?...

First you have to confirm if the remote control is defective. Use your cell phone camera to check the remote control transmitter. Using your camera as your eyes point your remote control to camera and "on" your remote control, light should emit in the remote control if it is good. Try to reset the error in the unit by disconnecting the power supply for 10sec. and operate the unit.If it the error code still present after the reset then you need a qualified technician for this problem.
