Question about Hampton Bay 04893 Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Remote Control??? I have model 04893 and bought it at home depot off the floor, but no remote was with it. There are no pull chains to turn lights or fan on. Does anyone know where I can get a remote. I don't think it can use a standard remote since the instructions for those have you turn the fan and lights on before installing it. Is there such a thing as a "built-in" remote?

Re: Remote Control???

Answer to your question - no built in remote. go to the HD web site and see if you can order a remote from them. next try the manufacturer for a controller.

Bottom light will not go on. I have changed the bulbs, top light and fan work with the remote.

Probably a bad pull-switch. These are available at Home Depot and probably Lowe's. Turn off the breaker before replacing it.

That's a low-end store brand for Home Depot only. Sounds like you need a new receiver. Make sure if you have a pull chain on the light that you pull the chain to the on position.

How do I get the fan to work using the remote ? All buttons (even the fan buttons) only operate the light, and only the upper light at that. Battery was low. Thought that was the issue, replaced with

First of all, that's a low-end fan made for Home Depot only! Did the remote come with the fan or was it an add-on remote. If there are any pull chains on the fan & light, then it was an add-on remote. If there is a reverse switch on the fan, then the reverse on the remote transmitter will not work. Probably need a new receiver.

It sounds that fan use to work and lights and you did correct thing by changing battery. I've had this problem and it just needs the reciever replaced. Reciever is located at electrical connection in ceiling. Just buy a new universal wireless remote and reciever at any home depot. if dont fill safe doing this task should call an electician to do job or someone with electrical skills.

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!

Pull chain for fan difficult to operate

All Hunter ceiling fans are "remote control" adaptable. Consider a remote control for it.
There are Nylon pull strings fitted with a ball clasps on the ends. Consider that, too.
Both at Lowe's or Home Depot...

Have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan that doesn't work.

I'm pretty sure that home depot does sell remotes for that brand, although you may have to buy a new receiver to go with it. Otherwise try a lighting store near where you live. They seem to be able to order things like that.

Light and fan won't come on. Remote control is working light switch tested and light test came on for fan, but not for light when chain was pulled.

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. Some things work, others don't, and others only intermittently. 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!

Light not working by pull chain or remote.

I would try removing the remote part. Connect the two main (light & fan) wires direct to your house main. Then if the pull chain works then you just need a new remote unit.
