Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote

I am installing a Hampton Bay ceiling fan after taking down and old inoperable fan. I have two switches (fan and light) AND the light is on a three way switch. The Hampton Bay has a remote control and the transmitter controls both fan and light on one power source. How do I install this thing?

Re: Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote

In your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.

Re: Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote

I have a hampton bay ceiling fan with light fixture all connected to a wall switch and controled by a remote. The light does not work any more and I have replaced the bulb with three different light bulbs and it still won't work. There is a green wire coming off the bracket but there is no ground wire coming in from above. There are two wires coming in from above ( the box in the Attic)
one white and one black and they are connected properly. All the wires are taged from the remote receiver, the fan and the light and are correctly connected. Any suggestions?

Our Hampton Bay 52 in. Ceiling fan lights will not shut off but the remotes will still turn the fan on and off.

More than you will have to replace that remote and receiver with a new one . They sell them at lowes homedepot menards. Its very easy to install the reveiver is mounted in the cover at the ceiling. Make shure you set the little dip switches in the controller and receiver to the same number before installing.Hope this helps.

I have a Hampton Bay ceil fan model # AC-552 "NN" and the serial # 000371. We had lost power in our neiborhood a while back and was use the generator and when the power came back on our fan didn't work....

Hampton Bay is an exclusive brand of Home Depot. They would be the ones to help you with that. BUT .. from my experience I would say that the cost and trouble of getting and replacing the motor in that fan would be easilly rivalled by the cost and ease of buying and installing a new fan all together.

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??

Need code for remote to ceiling fan

There is no set code from the factory; usually all the dip switches are in the same direction. In order to find the code, you will have to take the fan down, pull the remote out far enough to observe the dip switches, and then set them the same way on the 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.

Need remotes

In theory, they should. Try Hampton Bay first, and if not, check for aftermarket replacements. Those remotes are simple enough that there is no reason that they can't.

You must use the switch on the fan itself.
