Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
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.

If you have the remote control with out reverse bouton, just open the remote control and there is a contact just below the fan on/off bouton. Turn on the fan, use the same keypad to touch that contact with out pad and the fan will reverse. That orphan contact is the reverse bouton. The original remote has that bouton in there and the old one does not have a pad bouton for it but below the plastic there is a contact for it.

What if that slide switch is only working in one direction?

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.

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.

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

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.
