Re: Can we use old remote for the new fan
It is possible. Unless you know a bit of electronics, it would be difficult to do the conversion. You have to study the control circuitry of the old and new ceiling fan. You are lucky if it is a pin-to-pin direct conversion. An electronics techinician at your location can do it easily...I guess.

If your Kichler ceiling fan appears to have lost touch with the remote, try the usual routine of removing batteries from the remote, pressing all buttons to eliminate a stuck button as the cause, then reinstalling the old batteries (or new batteries) and testing operation. If no luck, disconnect power at the source, not the fan, pause briefly (to "reset" the fan control) and reconnect power to test operation. If still no luck, the remote receiver in the fan or the remote itself may be defective.
The transmitter is the remote. The receiver is located inside the fan mounting bracket next to the ceiling. If you replace it make sure to set the dip settings on the new receiver exactly as they are on the old one. Wire the new receiver exactly as the old one is wired if it was working before.
People find all kinds of creative ways to wire things. White wires are always supposed to be neutrals and therefore should always go with other white wires, and colored wires should always be hot and should always go with other colored wires. If you have a voltage tester you could test to see if in fact the blue wire is actually the hot and the white is actually the neutral. (test each wire to a ground). If the previous fan was wired backwards, it would not affect the operation of the fan or lights at all. But you'd probably want to make sure the new fan was wired properly. In that case connect the white from the fan to the neutral and the black and black/white to the hot.
black with black is for fan motor from swith red with red is for light fan from switch blue goes conect to black thats power for the remote white wuth white thats streat line is call comun or negative green withe green that streat conection for ground protection
