Replaced the older receiver box and had Directv reactivate the card. Will probably find another one later.

Model 28870-420 ceiling fan. Why don't lights respond to remote or pull switch and motor just hums?

Your fan may have to be "reset" to restore light response. Turn off power at the source, not at the fan. Wait for a few minutes while you remove remote batteries and press all buttons to eliminate a "stuck key" problem. Reinstall batteries, then turn on power again. Try using the remote to turn on lights. If no luck, the remote may need new batteries or the receiver could be defective.

The motor hum could be caused by a broken capacitor connection or defective capacitor at the motor.

Non responsive light or fan

Oh, that fan problem. Just for luck, remove the batteries from the remote and press all of the buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a possibility. Next, go to the source of fan power (breaker or fuse) and turn it off. Do not mess with any switches or pull chains. Turn on the fan power and try the remote. Make note of this procedure because you will have to repeat it whenever you have a power outage or you mess with the switches or pull chains trying to solve the problem

My Hunter remote controlled fan worked great for the first few years, but now the the light comes on and the fan turns off at the same time without me touching the remote or the switch on the wall. Wakes...

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you may have a defective remote reciver or even a bad remote.

Take the battery's out of the remote for a couple of days, if the fan turns on, the remote is good.
you can have the remote receiver replaced, they run around $60.00

I have a hampton bay ceiling fan/light and the remote came with it. The remote model is: UC7083T. The battery died and when I installed a new battery, the remote willnot connect with the fan/light. Any...

try turning off the switch/circuit breaker at the main lighting panel. Then just turn it back on. Worked for me.
I'm guessing a capacitor in the remote is holding a charge and causing the problem. You'll probably need a new remote soon thiough.

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.

Ceiling fan remotes

If you know where the remote receiver is located on the fan (probably in the canopy or the compartment where a light kit would attach), you may want to see if you can find the wire antenna that is hanging off of it. If possible, run that wire outside the canopy so it is exposed, this might give you a better response.
