New Hampton Bay Ceiling fan - runs only in clockwise direction
After a lot of effort I put the ceiling fan in my bed room, I connected Blue & Black wire to House Black wire, White to House white wire and Green to House Ground wire.
The light is working and fan is working but only in clockwise direction with all 3 speeds. When I use the "switch" to change the direction, nothing happens to the fan, light stays on unless I switch it off?
Re: New Hampton Bay Ceiling fan - runs only in clockwise...
By using the "switch" to change direction I assume you mean the small slide switch on the side of the fan housing. What you have done is correct and would not affect this switch. The switch is probably bad and you need to return the fan. Suggestion: if the switch is on the housing of the light kit and the light kit connects to the fan with a plug, you are in luck. Go get another fan, swap the light kits and return the fan. Saves you a lot of work. Good luck!

Don't know that fan because it's a low-end store brand, But, if it has no remote; White to white black to black blue to red ( usually) If no red wire in ceiling then put black & blue to black house wire.
Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.
very simple make sure power is off take old one down and hang new one hook up wires black to black white to white and ull have probably a blue wire from light hook it up to the black wire also then screw fan to the electrical box and lastly put on blades and sometimes u have to balance it with lil weights this is a pain and tedeous but usually dont have to do this turn ur power on and check
Some fans will not operate without the remote, however, I'm not sure if the Hampton Bay brand is one of these or not. Below is how you will bypass the remote if the fan will operate without the remote.
You can try disconnecting the receiver in the canopy of the van (the cover that fits snug to the ceiling) once you have shut off the power source remove the canopy and find the remote receiver.
Most likely it will be a rectangular box with white, black, and blue or red wires attached. Disconnect all wires from the receiver and lay it to the side.
Now reconnect the wires directly to the fan, white to white, black to black, if you have a red wire (or a second black wire) in the ceiling box connect it to the blue wire from the fan.
If you do not have a red wire (or second black wire) in the ceiling box, connect the black and blue wire from the fan to the single black wire in the ceiling box. This method will require you to pull the chain to operate the fan separately.
