You have not mentioned what type of fan, but if it's a ceiling fan,there should be a two position slider switch on the outside of the motor housing that will reverse the fan.

I have a sidewinder model 312 342 in which we only use the hand remote. The wal mount remote was not installed. The hand remote does not have the feature to reverse the blades. is there another remote...


The short answer is no.
Since it is not a function of the fan's original remote control buying any remote that has this (as a custom feature) will never work with your fan. . . Sorry

Explanation:

Since you usually only change the rotation twice a year this is accomplished by a switch on the fan itself.
During winter heating, to help move warm air that is trapped on the ceiling, blades should turn 'forward' in a clockwise motion. This movement will push up the air and pull the warm trapped air down the sides of the room improving heat distribution.

During hot summer weather, to help produce a comfortable breeze or 'windchill' that cools the skin, blades should rotate in a 'reverse' counter-clockwise motion. The air movement has the same comfortable effect as when you fan yourself with a magazine to get relief from hot, stifling air.

Hope this helps,

Which way does a ceiling fan need to run in winter


Usually most peopledont want drafts on them in winter so making the fan turn with the edge thats turned down then that is the leading edge

IE say you look at the blade from the bottom
next note the blades are tilted you have to determine which way your blades are mounted. The fans may all be the same or some odd ones may be out there.
say looking up at a blade thTAs 12:00 from you
if the edge thats closer to the floor is on the left the fan turns left from 12:00 or Counter-clock wise to make the air blow toward the ceiling away from you. Reverse for cooling so the air blows on you.
This makes the air move upward.
If your ckoser edge is on the opposite side the fan turns opposite..
the edge thats turned down toward you is the direction of travel for winter
In small rooms with larger fan the air may make such a quick change that it feels like it blows on you in either direction.

After researching the complaints on this product I found that the reverse mode can be intermittent, the high speed can be slow at best and the returns of this product back to the store are staggering. Get a new but different model.

Fan does not reverse. the wireless remote does not have a button to reverse the fan nor the chain pulls cause the fan to reverse direction. is there such a thing as technical support for hampton fans ?


Only the remote decides when the fan reverses. Weird, I know. Depending on room temperature and selected temperature (on the remote), the fan will reverse direction. For example: If you set the remote temperature (set temp.) for 74 degrees and the actual room temperature is 70, the fan will reverse to bring the warmer air (which is always closer to the ceiling) down and warm the room until the set temperature is reached, then the fan turns itself off. The remote monitors room temp and selected settings and repeats the cycle.

switch on side of fan above the actual fan blades needs to be switched off . There is a directional fan swirtch that is located above the fan blades right in the middle of the motor housing should have to pull the sliding toggle switch oppsite of current position

How do I reverse the direction of the fan blades to counter-clockwise on the fan? The fan is a Hampton Bay ''Clarington'' with a remote control.


There is a small black switch on the switch housing directly under the blades. When the fan is completely off, move the switch to the opposite direction.
