Need code for Concord ceiling fans

You have this backwards. The code is stored in the remote. The receiver is located inside the fan housing. You can try removing batteries from the remote, pressing all buttons to eliminate the possibility of a stuck one, reinstalling batteries (or installing new ones) and testing operation. If no results, disconnect power at the ceiling fan source, not the fan itself. Pause briefly, reconnect power and test operation.

Martec quadrant DLQ134B -Why - I have two fans which only just operate on low, no other response to medium or high. Have replaced batteries to controllers but makes no difference to the operating of same

Considering you have the same problem with both the fans and using law of probability I would say your fans are ok. My guess is that you are operating the fans in winter mode (reverse). In this mode the fan only works on low speed for obvious reasons. Switch the fan to Forward mode (using remote control) and check if the 3 speeds are working.

Hunter Ceiling fan remote is operating all the other ceiling fans as well

Sounds like all the dip switches are set to factory still. Easy enough to fix.
Slide open the battery compartment on the back of the remote control and remove the fan's canopy against the ceiling. Then just change the switch to a different setting but make sure that the remote and fan have the same setting. Repeat this in each room so that all the fans have a different setting to each other.

Hope this makes sense.

My Callaway II ceiling fan transmitter shows that air is being pushed down. However, the ceiling fan is actually pushing air upward. I've tried everything I can think of to get the transmitter and...

If I recall, this fan has no external switches that can be operated - all of the fan and light functions are controlled by the remote alone. If this is indeed the case, there is little that can be done outside of hoping the problem is with the remote itself. If that is the case, replacing the remote is likely to be cheaper and less labor intensive - that is if you can find one.

From what I have read, this fan is no longer in production nor available for purchase. You may have luck bringing the remote to Home Depot - the main (possibly the exclusive) distributor of the Hampton Bay brand to see if they have fans on display that make use of remotes for fan and light control. If so, try to see if all your remote functions work. If you find that the reverse function no longer works - you should ask the sales associate about how to go about ordering a replacement remote. If the remote fails to work at all, you can 1) try a "shot in the dark" about ordering a an exact replacement remote - with the hopes that the remote itself is defective - rather than the paddle fan, or 2) start new by buying a new paddle fan with hardware switches for fan speed, direction and light operation AND a remote control module to perform a whole replacement of your existing paddle fan.

The "add on" remote control gives you many of the benefits of the remote only fan - but also provides a "back up" way to operate the fan should the remote or module fail. Had this been the style you have currently, you could operate the fan by hand until the remote and / or ceiling module was replaced.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem

Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Casablanca fan speed problem

If this fan has a pullchain that also controls the fan speed, and you have a remote, the pullchain has to be set for the highest speed. If it is set at medium or low, it will mess with the remote operation. Note: usually high speed is the first pull after the "off" position.

Mind of it's own

your remote and fan is set to someone elses frequency by little toggle switches
you will have to remove fan to where it hangs make sure power off
find the remote sensor inside electric case at ceiling in the fan
this is a dip switch to control frequencies

09c4f2f.jpg you will see something like this adjust the dip switches
means change the dip switch for fan
then on remote open the remote battery pack find the dip switch in there
change those dip switches to the same as in ceiling fan
put fan together and turn back on power
your fan should now not pick up the other frequency of another remote and they have a span of about 50 yards to pick up frequencies

Hunter ceiling fan

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
