Question about Hampton Bay 46056 Callaway II Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Fan unit not responding to the remote to change speeds

The remote will turn the lights on / off / dim. When I push the remote for the fan the red light on the remote glows but the fan will not start. If I push the blades the fan runs at low speed. Trying to change the speed from the remote has no impact. The signal appears to be going to the unit because you can hear a change in sound as if it wants to respond. The fan will turn off from the remote.

The red light on the remote is the battery indicator light. You probably need a new capacitor. Take off switchcup & check black box to see if it is going bad.

SOURCE: Windworld III has mind of its own -- light comes on any time it likes fan changes speed

This sounds like one of the most common problems with Hampton Bay's remote-contolled fans...either the transmitter (remote control) or the receiver (mounted in the fan, typically inside the ceiling canopy) has gone haywire. A circuit has blown or something is short-circuited, and it has a mind of it's own. The only fix is to replace the receiver and transmitter, which are relatively cheap and sold as a pair at your local Home Depot and Lowes.

Hope that helps! If you ave any other questions, feel free to ask!

SOURCE: remote controlled ceiling fan

unplug the fan then remove the batteries from the remote then plug the fan back in and, reinstall the batteries; this resets the fan control

SOURCE: Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed

It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

SOURCE: The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.

I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.

Help. I need help properly connecting wires on a new ceiling fan.


Usually, the fans with remotes will dim the lights by holding the light button for a few seconds. So, the red wire would stop this feature if wired directly to the fixture. That would eliminate the wire coming out of the receiver for the lights. If you want the light to dim, then tape off the red wire, so the remote will dim them. The wall switch won't work anymore. If you want to connect the red wire , tape off the wire from the receiver that connects to the light sockets and connect the red wire to the wire for the light sockets. This will operate the fan but the remote will not dim the lights. If you have a motor speed controller in the wall from the old fan, remove it and replace it with a switch or eliminate the switch altogether so the remote will control the fan speed.

Why does fan no longer respond to remote?


Remote controlled ceiling fans do not respond favorably to wall switches. To restore order, you will have to start over. Shut down fan power at the source. Set the wall switch to ON and promise to never, ever use it again. Turn on power at the source. Try remote fan and light control functions. If either does not work, there could be pull-chain switches on the fixture that are interfering. Troubleshoot to get both fan and lights controlled only by the remote.

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light


Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

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.

Remote control wall unit does not turn on Monte Carlo fan or light although red light comes on when buttons are pushed (fan and light worked for about 2 years although it was hardly ever used).Frank


Are the manual switches on the fan in the 'on' position?

Select the maximum fan speed on the remote and then operate the manual switch on the fan. Set that to the highest speed then control it with the remote.

Same theory applies to the light.

If this is not the problem then the remote receiver on the fan is probably faulty.
