An air conditioner overheating is often cause by dust blocking the cooling fins. Check for dust behind the front panel (remove it first). A few years ago I removed the enclosure on my air conditioner and, with a garden hose in the yard, used a fast water stream to remove the blockage. It worked well. More recently, with another air conditioner, all I had to do was peel off the dust from the front of the fins.

mcdevito75 here, On the fan you hear, carefully turn the blades by hand just a little and see if they start up on there own. These motors are sealed units and maybe the oil is a little thick from non-use. If the baldes don:t start up, Then I would replace the fans.

Fan won't reverse though it has before


It could be 1 of 3 things. 1) Receiver unit, 2) Sender (Remote), 3) Motor. For my brand new ceiling fan it turned out it was the motor.

Sun burns out the photocell in lights. Hampton Bay uses cheap components in their Fans and Lighting all made in China for a fraction of what you paid. Dont waste time calling gpwarranty.com they dont care.
Best option..buy a good set and dont buy them from Home Depot, Hampton Bays primary retailer, sort of voting with your wallet.

Contact the manufacturer and let them know what happened. The company will probably honor the warranty, especially if you tell them that you don't have the receipt since the unit was installed two years ago. I wouldn't tell them that you recieved it as a gift, just that you installed it two years ago and the unit isn't running.

Bulbs burning out in Hampton Bay ceiling fan


I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.
