Question about Madison Avenue Dryers
Not necessarily true. Your fan light is controlled from the wall unit using radio, it's not hard wired, in most fans today. There is a promulgation of wireless devices in homes today, along with electronics and appliances that interfere. There are no easy answers here, you have to determine which item is causing the effect. Often times it's a microwave oven. My daughter was making breakfast in the kitchen using the stove, refrigerator, toaster and microwave. All of these appliances have electronics and can provide interference. Worst offender is the microwave oven which generates strong RFI inteference. You can test this by putting a 3' x 3' piece of alumnimum foil between the microwave oven and your fan. Not pretty, but at least you know the problem. Your microwave needs to be a goo 10-15 feet away from a device to minimize interference. Yes, that's not what you wanted to hear. Go back to a wired light.fan. There's most likely nothing wrong with your fan. Try changing the frequency that your fan uses. Probably won't help, buts costs nothing but your time. Good Luck

SOURCE: remote not controling fan
You either have a bad receiver or the receiver isn't wired correctly,
On the receiver house wire side are black, white, and green.
On the receiver fan side are white, black, blue, and green. The black is hot for the fan, the blue is hot for the light. They can be wired together from receiver to fan.
At the bottom are a blue and a white wire to go to the lights.
Sometimes when installed the receiver is placed so that a part of the wiring box obstructs the signal from the remote and it doesn't work properly, or misses some commands.
I recommend buying a new remote and receiver and wiring the receiver in so that it rests on the sheetrock beside the wire in box.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

Many times this is caused by stray frequencies in the neighborhood. And, sometimes changing the frequencies on the remote and receiver reduce the occurrence.
But it sounds like this may not be the case, here. If not, the receiver in the fan is the culprit and should be replaced. No danger, just annoying.

Unfortunately, you either have a faulty reciever or remote. A replacement will cost $30-$40 at homedepot. And it doesn't matter which is faulty because you can't purchase them seperately anyhow.
