Ceiling fan does not respond to remote

The remote will activate the lights, on / off, dim. But the fan does not respond. When you hit the remote fan speed control buttons you can hear the fan unit trying to change but it stays at the same speed. Sometimes the blades have to be pushed to actually start the rotation.

SOURCE: Hamton Bay Ceiling fan w/ remote.

The remote and the transmitter have 4 keys to set the frequency that each r on. (In case of multiple fans and remotes) The keys above the fan have to match the keys in the remote. It is a simple up or down position for each. They r small. but if they dont match, they r speaking different languages.

Unfortunately, you either have a faulty reciever or remote. A replacement will cost $30-$40 at homedepot2.gif. And it doesn't matter which is faulty because you can't purchase them seperately anyhow.

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.

Light on ceiling fan is very dim. Do not have dimmer switch. Changed bulb but light is still dim. Could something be wrong with the fan?


If it has a remote, press down on the light button and keep it pressed down until your light gets to full brightness.

Fan unit not responding to the remote to change speeds


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.

My control won't activate the light on my Hunter fan. The light comes on via pull chain fine, and the control works the 3 speeds on the fan, but the light won't respond.


Check the wiring on your receiver to make sure the light wire is connected.You have to have the light on with the pull chain and then use the remote to turn it on/off.

I have a Hunter fan with remote. The fan or the light comes on by itself with no one around


See my post below: (Sorry, we're in the same boat)

Hunter ceiling fan with remote, have 5, 4 are seriously impaired! Lights dim to half strengh after variable time 10 seconds-30 minutes. And lights or fan turns on randomly (come home & fan on full blast), and one in which the lights won't dim (just blinks when try to dim)! Hunter "kinda" admits there is serious problem with remote but doesn't have a solution. Tells people to try changing to different code due to possible interference (pain in **** to change code on ceiling base!), was totally ineffective. Then replaced receiver in ceiling base (another total pain) in 3 fans with new ones sent Hunter, still totally useless. Hunter's suggestion, don't use the remote, just use the pull chain. If I had wanted a pull chain fan, I'd have bought a pull chain fan. TOTALLY USELESS! Moral of story: If you want a remote ceiling fan (my friend found out that all their remotes are made by the same company in Taiwan), don't buy Hunter!!!!! P.S. I found a "Kinda"- fix for the lights dimming to half strenth. After turning on the lights, wait 1 second, then dim lights slightly, they will then stay on the strength that you dim them to. - P.P.S. When I changed the receiver in the one where the lights won't dim, it "solved" that problem...Now it has the same problem as the others, lights or fan turn on randomly!
