Question about Hampton Bay Dryers
First the remote stopped working, which stopped us from using the lights on the fan, now the fan seems to run slower, even stop at times. We can't adjust the speed of the fan, maybe the remote receiver is bad? The fan is only two years old, this problem has been going on for at least 6 months or so, and getting worse.

I recently replaced my hampton bay fan for the same reason (slow at all speeds) and discovered scorched and melted capacitors and wiring inside the fan. My suggestion is to stop using fan and replace immediately.

remove the vent on the dryer that goes to the outside start the dryer if it continues to ru n and not cut off you have a venting problem of the house
if it cuts off after 5 mins with the vent off you have a motor that is going bad

I'm pretty sure that home depot does sell remotes for that brand, although you may have to buy a new receiver to go with it. Otherwise try a lighting store near where you live. They seem to be able to order things like that.

The Remote (TRANSMITTER) control AND the RECEIVER must both be set to the same CODE in order for the REMOTE to operate the fan.
!!WARNING!! YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICITY ZONE!!
The RECEIVER is located in the CANOPY, the part of the fan assembly next to the ceiling which is also called the Hanger Bracket.
At the bottom of the Canopy you will see what looks like a large flat washer. Rotate the washer counter-clock wise to release it.
Then rotate the Canopy counter-clock wise to release and lower it. You will see the RECEIVER, which will have a short antenna at one end, tucked in among the electrical wire and bracket. Simply pull the RECEIVER out and you will see the CODE switches. Remember to set both devices to the same CODE.
Good luck. :)

You're probably correct that it's bearings/bushings.
Take the front off by first popping the top. Lubricate all moving parts (mostly bushings/rollers/pulleys on shafts) including the motor shaft/bearings.
Don't get oil in belt path (like on a pulley where the belt will ride) or on the belt.
This should solve the problem.
Use something akin to 3-IN-1 Machine Oil.
