My fan does not have a reverse switch for sure so I scoured the net and got no real answer. I did come accross a comment that said that it worked internally at the remote box in ceiling. Here is how I finally figured it out after about 6 months of searching. Put the fan on high, Turn wall switch OFF, Hold the HI button on remote, Turn switch back on. IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sparq

SOLVED: I have a Hampton Bay 54" ceiling fan (pewter color with leather coating), and it has no reverse switch either. It was running, but in the opposite direction I wanted. Out of the box it came with a remote wall switch that must be installed in the wall control box, as the fan's speed and reversal is controlled by a relay inside the fan. I haven't found a way to get this relay to "flip" without using the signal from the original remote. They wanted $70 for a new remote, the fan only cost $90~! Fark that!

However, if you lost this switch, there is another mod, if you open up the fan's housing, you'll find Black, White and Blue wires going into a small black box circuit box containing a green board with some capacitors. There is also a separate smaller box containing a small capacitor that says "4.5 uF" with red and white wires leading out of it. There are also four wires: Gray, Pink, Red and Yellow. You can rewire the fan thusly to use either no remote (always on) or use an aftermarket remote this way:
1, Black to Gray and Pink, (twist all 3 together)
2. White to Yellow and "Capacitor >> Red" (to do this, cut and use the white lead that leads to the capactor (leave the red lead connected to the capacitor. Don't cut the red wire.

To reverse direction, just reverse Black and White above. This works, you're in a fixed direction, but you will have speed control if you use one of those aftermarket remotes.

Some fans come with a wall switch that replaces your light switch and the control is on this. If you can take the dome off the fan and see the wires there will be 4 wires. U can also buy a universal switch if some one tossed it away. If this doesn't work try getting a new fan, I install lots a of cieling fans and these days they all have the switch in plane sight.

SOURCE: I have a Casablanca Intelli touch ceiling fan.

My fan operates the same way. To reverse it, turn it on a low speed. Then, turn it off and on, then off and on again, quickly. You should hear a series of beeps, and the blades will slow down and then reverse. You may have to play a bit with the timing of the off/on/off/on sequence to get it right but you should be able to get it fairly easily.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Can't find switch to reverse direction (24002)

I found a pdf of the manual on "KingOfFans.com" and there was a graphic showing the location of the switch. It is on top of the motor underneath the small bulbs in the top section of the fan. It is really rather difficult to get to and not the best design but I found it and it worked.

Hunter ceiling fan 52 ",


Hey dale. Sounds like either the integrated remote pack inside the fan housing might be bad, or the reversal switch part. If it has a switch on the fan housing to change it from forward and reverse, you could try going to a hardware store and replacing that switch. If that doesn't work, then it is probably a bad remote receiver pack iside the fan, it will be a bigger, probably black little box. If this is the case, your better off getting a new fan, as it will cost about the same. If your fan doesn't have a little switch to change blade direction, 9 out of 10 times it is the receiver pack. If your fan does have a switch for fan direction, there is a good chance it is a bad switch. It could also be both. After 10 years with the fan, you might seriously want to consider purchasing a new fan.

I need to reverse direction of fan


mcdevito75 here, Close to the ceiling but still on the fan motor shroud should be another small pull chain switch, this pull chain switch is the fan reverse switch, the switch may also be a toggle switch but I doubt it. Look close to the other pull chain switch for the fan, for the reverse switch.
