Troubleshooting remote on Hampton Bay fan

I have a Hampton Fan with a remote. It stopped working a few months ago. I ordered a new one remote but this one includes the kit for the fan. I tried testing the remote with the default settings but I don't know how to check the fan's settings. I don't have the manual for this fan either. Its the metallic silver fan with the silver-looking blades. I don't recall the model number.

    Rewording my original question:
    The remotes that I tried are:
    1. model: FAN-HD; handheld remote that originally came with fan.
    2. Fixed remote SKU#191-707, that goes into the wall.
    Both remotes's settings are set to 1=OFF, 2-4=ON
    If neither remote works with this fan, what should I check for in the fan itself? Nothing has been changed since the original installation. It just stopped working. thx

    I cannot find the model # for my Hampton Bay Fan! I thought it would be on the fan somewhere but I was wrong. Can I take a photo of it and send it to you?

Try putting fresh batteries in the old remote. Then check your dip switch settings on the fan and on the remote to be sure they are set the same. Sometimes (after taking careful note on the original settings) toggle the dip switches off then back on will get it to work. Usually the fan dip switches are found on top of the fan (one must look pretty hard sometimes.) If you download the manual, it will show you where the dip switches are.

    A photo would help as we need the model # to tell you exactly how to disassemble the fan to access the receiver for troubleshooting or replacement. Unfortunately, experts are not permitted to reply via email. I'm not sure if there is a way to upload a photo to this site, however, you may be able to find it in the "products section". If not you may be able to upload a pic to a Usenet newsgroup that allows photo's to be uploaded, then tell us where it's at. Or possibly upload it to a personal pic site if you have one. Without the model #, we're kinda dead in the water as far as trying to help you. Maybe go to the store where you bought it and if you're lucky, they will still be selling it. Maybe search the web until you find it.



    Basically we need to determine if the fan works manually. If the receiver is removed (for troubleshooting purposes) the fan can be run manually. If the fans runs manually, then the next step is to replace the receiver (you should already have one when you bought the remote "kit"). We can tell exactly how to do these things step by step, but we need the model # to do so.

1. Adjusting the dip switches:
Each fan/remote combination is set to work on a specific frequency, much like tuning in a specifc radio station. Some fans allow you to set this frequency by means of a set of small switches called "dip switches". There is one set located inside the remote, and the other set would be position on the fan, with the remote receiver electronics. This would be either on top of the motor, or inside the switch housing or ceiling canopy. These switches "tune" the remote and fan (received) to the same "station" and therefore must be set to the same setting. If a fan is not responding to the remote you can check to make sure that the switches are set to the same setting in both locations, and/or try a different setting. They are also useful if you have two remote fans, you will want to be sure each fan is set different so the remotes do not interfere. Lastly, if some other wireless device is interfering with the fan (causing it to turn on and off seemingly at random) such as a garage door opener or cordless phone, you can try a different setting on the dip switches.

If the fan will work using the manual control on the fan itself, then it sounds like the receiver module at the fan has failed. Particularly since you've replaced on of the the remote, and assuming you've attempted to register the new control with the receiver.

There must be a number on the fan somewhere, but require getting a ladder to get up close to the fan. As a Ginko asked, we need this information to help you further.

Well, there are at least ten models similar to your description, check the number written on the remote, you may also need to read and tell us the number written on fan service tag, so that we can provide proper support.

    Does the fan works?

    If the fan does not work at all , then it is not the remote, it is a defective fan.

    If the fan does work, and the replacement remote is not controlling the fan , then the new remote provided has the wrong IR codes.

Need to program Hampton Bay Ceiling fan remote control CHO88T7030T, HELP!


Change the battery. This is the first step when troubleshooting a ceiling fan remote. The easiest fix to any remote control problem begins with battery replacement. A 9-volt battery is needed to operate all Hampton Bay ceiling fan remotes.

Check the light switch used for the ceiling fan. The light switch found on the wall must be in the "on" position. This allows the ceiling fan to be operated by remote control

Re-program your remote. If battery replacement fails to get your remote working again, try to reprogram the remote. Open the battery cover you will see 4 dip switches. These switches must be set to the same position as the receiver on the fan. Use the screw driver to move the dip switches either up or down.

Follow the previous step to change the frequency if the ceiling fan is randomly turning on or off. Other electronic devices such as garage door openers can interfere with the ceiling fans receiver, causing it to randomly turn on or off.

Call Fan Man Lighting at 1-866-600-3267, they are very patient. I'm guessing you may have a bad receiver, but they will be able to talk you through troubleshooting

Unable to get fan to respond to remote Hampton Bay 54".


There is most likely a wall switch which you will need to ppush to the on position to send power to the fan, then the remote will do as it is supposed to do. If you find that it is not the wall switch, then I would check the electrical panel for a circuit breaker that has kicked partway off or blown fuse.

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.
