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???

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

The problem is that the CFL lamps, once they are lit, will stay energized by a very low level of current, and the remote obviously is not what we would call a positive off device .. if you use the wall switch and then go back to the remote in the off position , do the lights come on flickering again? You could try another brand of remote.

Hunter ceiling fan. Lights and fans turn on and off by themselves.Both fans are on the same wall switch and are operated by separate remotes.


I just installed a 2nd hunter fan model 23811 that also seems to be controlled by grimlins. If the power is left on, the light and fan randomly turn on and off. And no, it is not due to fans being on the same frequency. It appears to be an issue with the control module. I'm contacting Hunter.

Flickering lights


make sure you have the remotes/receivers set to different jumpers. I installed 2 fans and had the same problem, just had to change the jumpers on one of the fans and the corresponding remote

Hampton Bay Ponte Vecchio ceiling fan light flickers


Try swapping out the bulbs and see what happens. There are bulbs made specifically for ceiling fans that have heavier duty filaments in the bulbs, or you could use compact fluorescents. The warning about using a solid state control was referring to using a solid state dimmer at the wall switch.

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
