Remote fans quit working during a thunderstorm-lots of lightning

We have a harbor breeze remote ceiling fan. During a thunderstorm both of the remote controlled fans stopped working. The switch is on, but the blades, nor lights work. Could the lightning have caused an issue?

I've been having the same problem with my remote not working. I actually just checked the dipswitches in the remote against the ones in the ceiling fan, and they somehow were not the same. It seems that the 4th dipswitch may have inadvertently been altered due to the battery either being changed or just moving. I advise you all check out the settings on the actual fan to see whether or not they match up.

Twist the cap covering the wiring above the fan (make sure the power is off, just in case), and you will see a black box like thing straddled towards the top. There is a little rubber square cap guarding the dipswitches. Take that off and note the setting of the 4 switches (on/off). Compare it with the remote by taking the batter pack off and looking at the 4 switches there.

I noticed that the 4th switch on my remote was turned on when it should have been off. I changed it back, and now it works.

Hopefully this helps you all.

We just recently installed a harbor breeze ceiling fan w/light and remote. During a storm the lights just quit working. What can we do?


Power outages cause ceiling fans to suffer memory loss. The basic "cure" is to disconnect fan power at the source and, while waiting a few minutes, remove the remote battery and press all buttons to verify that none are stuck. Reinstall the battery and test operation. Other factors may affect restored operation such as using wall switches and pulling the chains. The simple brain in the fan canopy can't remember switch and/or pull chain settings at the instant of power loss.

Harbor breeze fan remote unit does not allow the ceiling cap to be replaced


That's a cheap store brand fan. I won't even install one anymore because they're missing parts half the time & they don't give good air flow. If you have the receiver all the way in the hanging bracket, the canapy cover should fit. Is the electricial box even with the ceiling or is it up higher?

Harbor breeze ceiling fan w/lights&remote


Did the fan have a remote when it was purchased? If so, you already have a receiver in the fan somewhere. You'll have to find it to see if you can set the new transmitter to the same frequency.

Harbor breeze ceiling fan remote does not work


You need a new receiver. Harbor Breeze is a store brand made with low-end parts.If you want airflow you need to get a fan with at least a 13 degree blade pitch. Remember you get what you pay for.

Installation of wall remote for harbor breeze ceiling fans


One black wire on the switch hooked to the black sources wire. The other black wire on the switch hooked black up to the fan. The green on the switch wire goes to the bare wire. If there is bare wire you can use the white wire.
