SOURCE: Remote control stopped working
Under the dome (where the electrical connections are) is the receiver unit for the fan. It could be that it is no longer working. Also the remote may have dip switches to change the frequency channel (sometimes located behind the batteries) check that these have not been changed or check they correspond to the receiver unit on the fan.

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. 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!

I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.

I'll guess and say that the fan quit working properly shortly after either a power surge in your house of after a light burnt out after turning them on. It has happened several times to the two Hunter fans we have here, both with the wireless remote control. After having both replaced under warranty, and then paying for a replacement, I finally took the receiver apart and found the root cause. There is a power regulator (looks like a power transistor) that uses the aluminum portion on the housing as a heat sink. The part is easy to replace for those of you who are handy with a soldering pencil. For those of you who are not, I'm sure you know of someone who is. Now for the good and bad news. The good news? The replacement part is about a dollar from an electronics supply house called Mouser. I tried Radio Shack, but they have really cut back on electronic components. The bad news? I can't remember the part number. I have a spare one, but I can't find it right now. I will look for it and if need be, I'll open up the receiver and get the number off of it and post back to this thread. After replacing the part in both a little over six months ago, we have had no problems with the receivers. Voltage spikes no longer take out the regulator.

it also could be one of the the jumpers fell out of the remote
they are located just above the battery. you will need to match the placement of the jumpers with the receiver mounted in the fan.
