Hampton Bay 54in. Covington with remote control

In the instructions it says to place the receiver of the remote control flat part to the ceiling plate there is no room for the receiver to go in. We have tried everything upside down, down side up, left, right backwards and it doesn't fit. I called homedepot and they don't know anything about it so here we are stuck with a fan that is incomple hanging in limbo.

    i am having the exact same problem...nothing seems to work. i've tried to jam the receiver in but the canopy does not cover it. and when i tighten the mounting screws, i crush the receiver. any luck with yours??

    Same thing here. It won't fit in the place where the hard-to-see-instructions say to put it. Anyone find a answer?

    I'm having the same problem while trying to install using the "close-to-ceiling" mount directions. The received won't fit in the canopy regardless of position. Has anyone contacted Hampton Bay about this manufacturing error? Thanks, Mark

    as b4inmd stated, you can move the wires around within the canopy and then slide the receiver thru the mount. It took some wrangling but I did it. Not the best design, I must say.. (sigh)..

    I replaced a exisitng Hampton Bay Remote Control Celing Fan. The ball mount plate is screwed directy into the beam on ceiling. Evidently the receiver from the old fan is pushed up above the beam. When I wired the new ceiling fan I just used the white and back wires coming from the old receiver to the fan hoping the old remote would work with the new fan.



    When switched power is turned on the fan runs at I believe high speed and old remote does not work, will not turn off or lights do not work. New remote with identical code set still does not work. Do not know why ?



    What now, can I wire the new receiver to the wires from the old receiver (2-receivers) up in the ceiling or do I have to climb up through all the insulation and take out the old receiver then wire the new receiver ?



    Although this is turning out to be a major pain I'm almost thinking climbing through the insulation and rewire from the attic is best. Any thoughts on this ?

    We wound up mounting the receiver outside of the fan...it looks kinda weird but it works. We used double stick tape to mount it.

Make sure the power wires from the ceiling mount are still in the electric box. Then have them come from the side near the screw mounting area. In otherwords, not through the center hole. In the center of the black metal part - there is where you put the reciever. It will fit literally resting on the black metal.

I had the same problem. My neighbor, and electrician for Epcot, suggested I put the receiver up in the ceiling. That worked! Had to cut a hole around the box just big enough to shove it up there.

The metal basket (or Frame) that you mount on the ceiling or frame has an open area inside. You put the reciever into that open area and do the wiring around the receiver.  It fits inside the factory cover with no modifications at all.

The yellow receiver box slides in the black hanger housing. This is the housing that screws onto the junction box in your ceiling. My junction box is very shallow, so I could not tuck the wires into the box. I routed my supply wires over the top of the black hanger and connected them externally, taping them for extra safety.
You may notice the yellow remote receiver has rounded ends. Slip the end with the brown antenna wire through the hanger first, and let the brown wire hang out of the canopy for best reception. In my humble opinion the instructions were below par!

Do you want to sell your Covington Ceiling fans? I may be interested in purchasing them. If you live in Atlanta, I could remove the old ceiling fans and install your new ones if you need.

We have a hampton bay ceiling fan model 54cvt. We cant figure out how to change the light bulb or change the direction of the blades. We dont have a manual for the fan.


This fan is also known as the Hampton Bay Covington 54 Ceiling Fan. You need to turn the globe anti clockwise until it comes out. The full instruction manual can be found here.

Hampton Bay Covington 54" Ceiling Fan Light Does Not Come On


Try taking the lighting kit completely off it make sure the blue wire and white wire are both firmly connected.

Does the remote work on the fan part ok? Do you have the black, white, and green wire on the house side connected to the side of the receiver with the same wires?

You know the black and blue are hot for the fan and lights (blue for lights). If the wiring connections are ok it had to be either in the remote or receiver. Are the dip switches set for the same on each?

I have this fan with the remote. The top right-hand switch on the remote says fwd/rev and that does, in fact, reverse the direction of the blades. The manual says to make sure the fan is still moving when you press this switch or it won't reverse direction.

It slides in above right above the ball, in the mounting bracket where the canopy is. You may have to kind of encourage it to go in there, and you will need to push wiring off to the sides and out of the way to help it have clearance to get in there.
