How to sync the remote with the fan?The remote was operating the fan, but someone must have pulled the chain on the fan.


I have a ceiling fan that fails to operate under remote control whenever a power outage occurs. The solution is to pull the chain to guess which is an ON position, then operate the remote to select fan speed or off. Same routine for the light, if there is one.

Fan is 5 months old. Removed the governor because light was flickering. Now the pull chain for light switch doesn't work after ONE pull. So we tried to replace the switch but couldn't get it out...


If this looks like your switch then yes, it's a generic part available pretty much anywhere ceiling fans/parts are sold (I've seen them in Wal-Mart). You will probably need small wirenuts or a line splice to replace with this part, but as it it a SPST which wire goes where does not really matter.

My ceiling fan chain broke off from inside the plastic casing inside the hub. How do I open the plastic casing?


The cap on the bottom where the pull chain is located is removable and will give you access to the pull chain's switch, so that you can remove it and replace it. Be sure the wall switch is OFF before removing the cap. You can find a new pull chain switch at any home improvement center, on the ceiling fan isle. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Purchased Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan, Midili White 44", Model #71606 with remote from Home Depot. I have 2 switches wired to the lattter with 1 for the fan and the other for the light. Can I install...


Yes, you could, but you want have any way to control the fan speed. Unless, you install a rheostat that is rated for electric motors. A light dimming rheostat is not heavy duty enough, to handle the fan motor without over heating.

The remote on my Hunter ceiling fan (Model: 27185 - 060) does not activate the ceiling fan. I can turn the light on manually, but not the ceiling fan. I cannot see the antenna on the ceiling fan.


The first thing you need to do, is change the battery(s) in the hand held remote, as well as the battery(s) in the receiver inside the fan's cowling. Weak batteries will limit a remotes operation.
And, FYI - there is no antenna on the ceiling fan.

I hope this helps you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi: I have an bathroom heater fan, Thermosafe model:3208,(new Zealand) one day i found out that i could not turn it on, it even not make the "clip" sound (this heater wasn't designed...


From your description, it sounds like the pull chain ON/OFF switch is broken.Admittedly, this is the first time I have ever heard of a pull chain switch being on an electric heater, But, I guess it is in the ceiling and not wired to a wall switch, it's the only way to turn it ON or OFF. I wouldn't think that replacing the pull chain switch would be that difficult or expensive to replace. Most home centers and hardware stores sell this type of switch for use in ceiling fans, The key would be removing the faulty switch and taking it with you to buy a new one. You want to be sure that the new switch matches the amperage and polarity of the old switch.

As far as the unit only being a year old and the switch failing so quickly ... it's in a warm moist environment 24 hours a day. It doesn't surprise me that the switch broke. You might want to consider replacing the pull chain switch with a hard wired wall switch. Certainly, it would cost more than replacing the pull chain switch, but you'd never have that problem again.

I hope this helped you, Mary. Please let me know.

Ceiling fan is all wired up and on ceiling but light doesn't come on or fan doesn't spin. I have checked connections and tested for power. Is there a switch or anything on receiver that needs to be...


Jerry, from what you said, I assume you have a remote controlled ceiling fan. If that's the case, check the batteries in the hand held and the receiver, to make sure they are charged. Also, make sure they are installed properly. The Owner's Manual should have a reference to setting or resetting the codes for the remote control (Hand Held & the Receiver). Check those to make sure they are matching. And don't forget, the wall switch must remain ON for the fan to work, even with the remote control. The remote simply overrides the wall switch, when in operation. You may have to use the pull chain to start the fan motor the first time, then the remote can take over from there.

Good luck. I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

We have a Hampton Bay silver ceiling fan that was from the former tenant in the apartment. It is a five blade with four silver encased lights. It has a remote control. It does not operate now. I have...


you need to make sure there is not a wire loose inside the ceiling fan electrical housing you lost power somewhere they also have small electronic control boards installed in them now check for broken wires or shorts first. You will need to take the screws out at the top by the ceiling. It will be the round cover up by the ceiling with the rod coming down through the middle. Make sure to turn off power first.
