Wiring Hampton Bay Fan

I have two switches on the wall. One was for light and the other fan blade movement. We had a problem and someone installed a new hampton bay fan when buying the house. Now both fan and light work off only one of the two switches. I undid cover for fan and see that i have white, black and red from ceiling. I have black red white bule from fan. How do I get these circuits to work independently as before? green is to ground on fixture. Thank you

Re: Wiring Hampton Bay Fan

The blue wire is for the light.This should connect to the other switch instead of being combined with the fan switch.

Ceiling fan

mcdevito75 here, You"ll have to remove the cover close to the ceiling to get at the switch, Make sure the wall switch and fuse are out. Note the wire position and replace the switch with 1 from a hardware store. Are you sure that toggle switch is for the lights, as you should have another for the fan. Usually the wakk switch is used to turn the lights on and a toggle switch used to start the fan.

I bought a Hampton Bay ceiling fan and I have

Hi ,, the usual wiring for the fan / light is that in the ceiling the white wires connect together , the black house wire connects to the black fan wire, the red house wire connects to the other fan wire, usually blue or black with a blue stripe. If this does not resolve the issue, then check the wall switches and see that there is a power wire to each switch and that there is a red wire from the fan on one switch and the black wire from the fan on the other switch ..

Fan won't reverse to counter clockwise

I had a hampton bay fan that absolutely did not have a revers switch on the fan anywhere! MOST fans bought today will reverse. I was not about to give up. I scoured the net for an answer and could not find anything to help. I did however find a comment somewhere that said it could be done internally. After about six months I decided to search again (now). Nothing... so I started playing with the remote and the wall switch and Shazaam! I figured it out on my hampton bay fan. Turn the fan on high... Turn the wall switch off.... wait until the fan is pretty slow in rotation... hold the HI button on the remote.... Turn the switch back on. IT Worked for me! Hope this helps someone. SparqMark

It will be tucked in among the electrical wiring and inside the hanger bracket.

Simply pull it out and you will see the CODE SWITCHES. There are 16 CODE combinations that can be used. Both the REMOTE and the RECEIVER MUST be set with the SAME CODE.
Good luck. :)

Hampton bay fan, wall mount remote control

Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.

Wiring ceiling fans to wall switch

Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.
