Kitchen cabinet lights come on and off randomly

I bought the Hampton Bay halogen oblong three stage dimmer lights for my kitchen. They seem come on randomly without using the dimmer switch.

    I have the same problem. I installed them last month. When I installed them I noticed that I didn't even have to touch the dimmer button to turn them on. I just had to touch the cord.

    I tried to put the excess cord out of the way, but they still go on by themselves. I will check them before I leave the kitchen to make sure they are off and that I didn't leave them on by mistake, but later that night they are on.

Light does not stay on seems to be on a timer and no idea how to fix

Many fans with remote will have two seperate "lights" buttons on the remote. One is to actually use the lights, the other is a delay light used for when leaving the room when it is dark, that automaticly turns off the lights after a delay. It appears that Hampton bay tried simplifying the light, delay light, and dimmer functions all into a single button on most of their remotes, without offering any sort of "owners manual" to explain the functions and operation of these features.
I tried to do some research for a user's manual, but find it disturbing that Hampton Bay does not feel a need to include usage information in the manual for your model of fan.
I would suggest trying different combinations of double-pressing the light button, pressing and holding, and so forth, until something seems to work. On many fans with wireless remote, when the delay feature is activated, you can almost hear a small audible sound (I'm not sure how to describe it, really) every second or two, while it counts down before turning off. This could be helpful while working out the neccessary procedure, at least to know that it is in the incorrect lighting mode.
Also, most Hamilton Bay remote light switchs look a bit wide, as if they may have two or three button under the rubber button pad. Intuitively, I would guess that the left and right parts of the button would likely be for the dimmer features, so first try pressing, double-pressing, and holding the button in it's middle.
Please let me know if we figure something out, so that it may help others who own similar models of cieling fans. Also, if not too inconvenient, could you post a photo of the remote so that we can figure out what type it is? Hamilton Bay seems to have three different remotes used for Reddington III fans, depending on included features.

Hampton Bay Mercer ceiling fan keeps buring out bulbs

Halogen bulbs are a lot hotter than other bulbs and have a much shorter life span. It is the nature of the bulb. You can see about changing just the lighting fixture on the fan or look into getting an LED bulb, they run very cool compared to halogen and last forever.

I cannot get the light to turn off on my Hampton Bay fan. Everytime I turn the fan on the light also automatically turns on. The remote appears to be useless, everytime I hit the light/dimmer button...

Possible that the logic control within the fan unit is defective if is seems to switch on both. For a start you can try to clean the remote pads to confirm if the pads are accidentally contacting when pressed for one function. If dimmer works then the selection mode could be the culprit.

Is there a ac outlet dimmer that i can use on my hampton bay halogen track light? the track light power cord is contained in one shield and not a typical two wire type. track light power cord is grounded 3...

As far as I know no one makes an AC outlet power dimmer because it is unsafe and you do not know what someone may plug into that thing if it were available, which could be a fire hazard and the reason it is not made in the first place.

But to answer your question, yes it is possible to use a dimmer on halogen lamps, and in fact they last longer when dimmed slightly.

Fan and dimmer remote does not work

The remote is a Hampton Bay remote that should dim the light and fan on and off. I replaced the battery and do not have a red light when I press the button. Light and fan does not turn off with remote.

Fan speed too fast

Is there a light switch control or just straight power to the fan? They do sell "Fan" controll switches just like a regular dimmer, but for a fan. If there is just straight power u would still be able to install a remote that could lessen the speed. Even if it is just pull chains. the remote would have three speeds and if u kept the pull chain on low, maybe the low remote speed could work.

Me too. I went back to Home Depot. They gave to me the phone number for Hampton Bay - 1-877-527-0313. I will call them tomorrow after they open to see what the deal is. it looks to me like the JDE11 is a mini-candelabra base. The lady in the fans at Home Depot said that all of the light kits were changing to the smaller based halogen lights. BUT, you'd think that they'd carry the light bulbs that have to go in the light kits they sell!!!
