Can't figure out how to reverse the Hampton fan with the remote

The fan is new. The remote does work the light and speeds. However, it didn't come with a user guide so I can't figure out how to reverse the fan.

It is counter-intuitive, but the fan must be running to have it change direction. Start the fan (I always set it on low), hit the forward/reverse button on the remote ONCE (you should hear a click from the fan motor), then wait for the fan blades to slow down...it will start up in reverse once the blades have stopped spinning. Same to turn it back again . HTH

Look for a switch on the ceiling fan. if you found it, it's the switch for the fan direction.

I have the Hampton Bay Windward II Ceiling Fan SKU 523-127. I have replaced various parts over the years including the ballast, light shade, 9" 30 Watt Circline bulb and the remote.

Hampton Bay Windward II Ceiling Fan SKU 523-127 was sold by Home Depot, and manufactured by King of Fans.

King of Fans website is: http://www.kingoffans.com
This fan can be seen by clicking on Products --> Ceiling Fans --> Click on page 9 (at the bottom of the webpage) then click on the Windward II fan picture, then you will be able to click on Download Owner's Guide.

How do I get the fan to work using the remote ? All buttons (even the fan buttons) only operate the light, and only the upper light at that. Battery was low. Thought that was the issue, replaced with


First of all, that's a low-end fan made for Home Depot only! Did the remote come with the fan or was it an add-on remote. If there are any pull chains on the fan & light, then it was an add-on remote. If there is a reverse switch on the fan, then the reverse on the remote transmitter will not work. Probably need a new receiver.

Fan won't reverse though it has before


It could be 1 of 3 things. 1) Receiver unit, 2) Sender (Remote), 3) Motor. For my brand new ceiling fan it turned out it was the motor.

My ceiling fan has no reverse switch, how do i change the direction


My fan does not have a reverse switch for sure so I scoured the net and got no real answer. I did come accross a comment that said that it worked internally at the remote box in ceiling. Here is how I finally figured it out after about 6 months of searching. Put the fan on high, Turn wall switch OFF, Hold the HI button on remote, Turn switch back on. IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sparq

Hampton Bay ceiling fan - will not reverse


It sounds like the direction switch has a broken connection on the "reverse" side.  Should be an easy fix (but you might need a soldering iron).

Hampton bay fan, wall mount remote control


Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.

I have the same problem and I notice that the fan goes in reverse when I turn off and back on. I have not found the solution yet but I would say that the remote has factory defects.

Hampton Bay w/ remote and will not reverse.


To eliminate this problem and any humming noise, remove any wall switch that turns off and on the fan, just remove the switch from the line and use the remote to operate the fan.

Read this on another thread - apparently the solution came from HB's tech support.
Turn the fan speed to HI and then select Reverse.  You should hear a "click" and see the fan reverse direction.  It seems that the reversing relay only works when the fan speed is set to HI.
Good Luck!!

Ceiling fan does not reverse with remote


Just reporting that I called Hampton Bay about the remote not working to reverse the fan. I was told that I needed to have the fan running on low and then press reverse on the remote control. If that doesn't work, customer service told me to press reverse while running the fan on medium. (Some fans are set to reverse on low and others on medium.) Nowhere in the manual is this addressed. I had been pressing reverse with the fan turned off, which seemed to me a logical thing to do. Live and learn.
