Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan At Slow Speed

Some one posted this problem a few months back with Hamilton Ceiling Fan. "My ceiling fan runs about 1/2 speed on high and medium and does not run at all on low. The remote LCD indicates the fan is operating in the opposite direction. The LCD indicates the fan is going forward and fan is going backward." I have the same exact problem with Hampton Bay White Redington Ceiling Fan. I tried to rewire but the fan speed stayed same while the fan ran it in differnt direction. p.s. There was an extra hot wire coming out of the celing. I also tried with that wire but same problem this time I just have to use different on/off switch on the wall. Thank you and any suggestions will be greately appreciated.

Re: Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan At Slow Speed

I recently replaced my hampton bay fan for the same reason (slow at all speeds) and discovered scorched and melted capacitors and wiring inside the fan. My suggestion is to stop using fan and replace immediately.

Re: Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan At Slow Speed

Be sure that the switch located on the fan is set to high when you are also using a wall-switch to control the speed of the fan. Avoid the mistake of having the fan-switch set to medium or low while also setting the wall-switch to medium or low. Set the fan-switch to high, then control the fan speed using only the wall control.

Re: Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan At Slow Speed

Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The fan unit itself is manufactured by AirCool 800-896-4908

Altura 68" fans will not operate on high speed.

I jtoo, ust bought The Altura (68" fan from home depot)
Home depot makes hampton bay through various chinese manufacturers.................
The fan ran slow on high speed, and barely ran on medium or low.
home depot gave me a number for their tech department that knew right away.....that the capacitor(s) are defective in many of the Altura fans.
They are sending the capacitors in 3 days to me no charge.
They are located under the fan ( remember the white square plastic plug you had to connect and the 2 wires for the optional light kit?.....)That plug is for the capacitors that everyone is having a problem with.
My guess is they are under rated for a fan that big and are sending better ones to those with problems.
Hope this helps.
The number is:

Ceiling fan is controlled by dimmer

Yes, if the hot wire going up to the fan is coming off the dimmer, it is reduced voltage and will slow down. There maybe a separate hot from another switch??

Bay Model # 526-012 Fans what size speed control

I can't see any reason why a Leviton fan speed control couldn't be used on any ceiling fan, after all, I don't even think Leviton makes ceiling fans. Second, you may be able to try using the 1.5 amp fan speed control and see if you can get by. The worst that could happen is the speed control wouldn't work or would only work for a short time and be junk.
