If you already changed the DIP switch IR code, then the possibility of interferance with a different remote is unlikely the cause.
More likely the fault is caused by a wiring problem.
In that case the fan must be taken apart and re-assembled, inspecting the internal wiring to fix the problem.

Before deciding to DIY , I suggest calling manufacturer, if the problem is internal wiring, the fault can be considered factory defect, and therefore fixed by manufacturer for free , or for a reduced fee, depending on the age of the fan.

Need manual for harbor breeze fan model # LP8063


The remote went bad, this is very common. These are great fans with poor design and cheap remotes. Go to Lowe's buy the new kit ( model: RCE-103LW) $30 bat included. Put battery in and turn off light switch. Have a bic pen ready with the battery cover off. Turn on light switch and press "learn" red button with the pen . You will have to hold it down for about 5 secs. The fan will the turn on medium if it took to learning the new remote. All buttons should now work normal. Return old remote to store for exchange they have a 1year return to to store warenty per the company rep. Anyother problems call 1 800 527 1292. They have good cust. Service.

Need to program Hampton Bay Ceiling fan remote control CHO88T7030T, HELP!


Change the battery. This is the first step when troubleshooting a ceiling fan remote. The easiest fix to any remote control problem begins with battery replacement. A 9-volt battery is needed to operate all Hampton Bay ceiling fan remotes.

Check the light switch used for the ceiling fan. The light switch found on the wall must be in the "on" position. This allows the ceiling fan to be operated by remote control

Re-program your remote. If battery replacement fails to get your remote working again, try to reprogram the remote. Open the battery cover you will see 4 dip switches. These switches must be set to the same position as the receiver on the fan. Use the screw driver to move the dip switches either up or down.

Follow the previous step to change the frequency if the ceiling fan is randomly turning on or off. Other electronic devices such as garage door openers can interfere with the ceiling fans receiver, causing it to randomly turn on or off.

Remote will not operate fan or light. Replaced battery. Remote light glows red when pressed


Check dip switches in remote and dip switches on receiver in the canopy of the fan, make sure the settings match exactly. Make sure there is power to the fan. Make sure the fan and light are not manually set to off by pullchains that may be on the fan. If the fan does have pullchains, wire it directly in (bypass the remote in the canopy) and test the functions to make sure the fan and light are working. If it works without the remote, but not with the remote, and the dip switches are set the same and you have new batteries, then the remote and receiver should be replaced.

Light comes on all by itself


You are probably picking up some kind of radio interference that is causing the receiver to think a remote has sent it a signal. A possible solution to this issue is to change the frequency that the remote uses to communicate to the receiver to turn the fan or light on.

I have had the same problem with the light coming on intermittently by itself. At first I also could not change the settings and have the remote work with the new settings. But I found out that when you change the dip switch of the receiver you must turn off the power using the wall switch or the circuit breaker and turn it back on before the receiver will use the new dip setting. I am still waiting to see if the light will come back on after changing the dip switches from 1-on, 2-on, 3-on, 4-off to 1-off, 2-on, 3-on, 4-on and the remote's jumpers from 1-jumpered, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- no jumper to 1-no jumper, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- jumpered.

These directions are for the Hunter 27157 model.

Ceiling fan and light with remote turns on and off by itself


Both the remote and reciever in the fan base have the ability to have the codes changed. What is happening is you are getting radio interference that is causing the problem. Change the codes by either switching the switches in different positions or adding more dip clips that came with the fan. In any case change the codes in both the reciever and remote to the same code and you should no longer have a problem. Usually the place to change the code in the remote is in the battery area and are small switches (usually 5 or 6 of them) and unfortunately you will have to take the fan down to do the one there.

Light goes on by itself


My solution for intermitent light on/fan off-on: It is not outside interference. It is defective receivers. I took back my second 27185 back to Menards with the exact same problem as the first. I went to Home Depot, bought a Hampton Bay model 191-691 remote unit for $8.00 less with same features and when you turn the lights off then back on, the receiver remembers the brightness level you turned off at. Been installed for a week now with no problems. Hunter would have acted up the first day.

Dip switch settings


I've had the same problem w/ light turning on/off. Called customer support and 3x waited 6 minutes to leave message and get no call back. Finally got a human and she told me to change code in receiver and transmitter. This was no easy task as the fan is very high up and the stupid thing needs to come down to adjust the receiver. Changed the setting and it worked for two days until it started back with the lights turning on at all hours. I noticed there's a toggle switch in the remote that is not explained in the manual. It says CFL on one side and INC on the other. The light will NOT dim if it's in CFL and tonight is the first time I've switched it to that setting. I'm hoping this is some kind of lockout for random signals going out of the remote...It would be nice to have a proper explanation in the manual. I should have gone with another Casablanca fan--Hunter products are lame.

Remote Control Problem


I had this problem. One day everything worked. The next day the fan ran at 1 speed and the remote didn't turn on the light, change fan speed, nothing. I changed batteries on the remote - no good. As you should know, the dip switches on the remote and on the fan have to match - which makes the remote and the fan on the same radio frequency so they can talk to each other. (They let you change radio frequency so that you don't control a similar fan down the hall as well as the one in the room that you intended to control.) Anyway, come to find out from the fan guy at Home Depot that sometime the dip switches on the fan "fall" out of place leaving the remote unable to talk to the fan. Sounded crazy, but sure enough one of the dip switches on the fan wasn't tightly in place. Once all the dip switches were tightly in place (with the fan dip switches matching the remote dip switches) everything ran fine. To change the dip switches on my fan that meant uninstalling the fan from the ceiling and taking the big top cover off to expose the dip switches.
