Question about Universal Remote Control Hampton Bay Universal Ceiling Fan/TV/DVD/Satellite Remote Control

Lights flicker when turned off by remote

I just installed a ceiling fan with light assembly and a remote control unit to operate both. When the power is turned ON at the wall but the light is turned OFF with the remote control the lightbulbs flicker very lightly (CFl bulbs). However, if I turn the light off using the pull cord on the fan/light unit itself this doesn't happen. My questions are: can this issue be resolved (is it due to the CFl bulbs) without doing away with the remote control unit altogether? Is this dangerous?

    I Have a Hampton Bay Fan Light from Home Depot and the new CFL light
    bulb's that I put in will flicker when I turn them off with the remote
    control. Although if I turn off the light switch after I turn them off
    with the remote control, then they do not flicker.

I had this same problem with a Hampton Bay fan with a remote light switch. I call the manufacturer of the of the switch and was told that the model switch I had would not work correctly with CFL bulbs. The problem is with the dimmer function. You either need to change the bulbs to incandescent, or change the remote receiver in the ceiling. Hampton Bay was kind enough to send me a new receiver that works with CFL. The CFL units are white, and the incandescent is black. Hope this helps you.

    ERRRR... I spend 2 hours rewiring the fan to try to find the problem with the flickering of the lights when turned off. Come on Hampton Bay, how about a large sticker someplace to help with this???

Dimmer isn't working nor the home shield light setting


I would double check the wiring of the fan. Is the remote an add-on that was purchased separately, and did it include a receiver unit which is installed in the fan housing? If so, I would double check the wiring of the receiver unit.

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.

Track lighting remote control similar to that of ceiling fan?


Yes, but the remote operates on the switch that turns the lights on and off. Lutron has this kind of technology and it is really cool. I have it all over my house and I don't even have to go room by room turning lights off; I just push a button from my bedroom. Along with a single remote that can be used with each switch in your house, you can program a house remote that controls the lights and ambiance of every room.

Hello. What you will find is that there is a battery in the ceiling box [where the wires are connected] as well as in the remote control. My bet is that the battery in the ceiling box also needs to be changed. Hampton Bay products all come from the home depot. Go there if you need instructions, they should provide them to you.

Ceiling fans on same frequency


There should be dip switches in/on both the remote control and the ceiling fan that enable you to change the control frequency. The only thing that you have to ensure is that the two components are set to a matching frequency.

The switches in the remote are located in the battery compartment just above the batteries. Remove the dome on the ceiling fan and you should find the switches for that unit. Just compare the two and match whatever changes you make from one unit to the other.
