Question about Hampton Bay (261025) Dual Mount Ceiling Fan
Have hampton bay E106510 3-speed with light.
Light quit working.
Replaced (optional) wireless controller.
Blue wire leads test positive for continuity check.
Took fan apart. Notice wiring from lamp socket (white wire) is connected to
a capacitor? SH-Cap. 4uF 300v.
Could that possibly be defective?

I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.

The only thing which goes to the house's white wire is the fan's white wire.
Both the black and blue wires from the fan (black for fan motor, blue for light kit) go to the black house wire.
Anything else could result in a fire, a melting of internal parts, or a massive electrical explosion arc. The owner's manual is very clear about how the fan is supposed to be wired, and you voided the warranty by going against it.
You may have blown a fuse or a circuit breaker, or you may have blown something within the fan, or your house may be wired in series (very unlikely) in which case you need a new separate wire run for the light kit.
I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

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.

Try these two: 1) look for a small switch up near the light area on the dark-colored area of the fan. If a switch is there, then simply flip the switch to the other position; 2) if you have a remote control for the fan, the reverse mode may appear on the remote control. Hope this helps.
