    I lost a lamp, coffeepot and my ceiling fan one night. Woke up and none of them worked. I replaced the lamp and coffeepot, but the ceiling fan is 15 feet up. It has a remote, and I replaced the batteries. Still doesn't work, but the little red light comes on when I push the buttons. Sounds like the receiver??? I would like to get a new receiver. My remote is Model# UC7078T -- FCC ID CHQ8BT7078T and has a Hampton Bay logo on it.The ceiling unit is one with fake antlers, fake wood blocks, 3 lights with paper shades and 5 blades. Don't know the # or size, but it came with this remote 3 to 5 years ago. Where can I get a receiver?

    I have the exact same problem, the little red light on the remote comes on but no lights or fan the remote madel is UC7078T and it sounds like some other folks have issues with Hampton Bay as well. I'm not sure if I should waste the time and money to have an electrician look it over or not. The fan is about 5-years old.

    my remote will not turn off or on the fan or the light and its the only way of turning this ceiling fan on and off. we have to hold the remote control right up at the and nearly touch it to make it work at all. my husband took the light fixture part down witch has a hub and looks like a motor or battery pack for the light fixture. It appears to have been hot at some point as the casing has burn marks or hot spots burned into it. we went to home depot but they were of NO HELP...they sold us something that doesnt even fit or work in this unit. model number uc7051R

I had the same problem. I am guessing one of the kids dropped it. I openend the remote and noticed the dip switch had been jarred so that it was not set completely. I set the switches and now it works fine.

Don't buy Hampton Bay products. This is Home Depot junk wherein the remotes don't work after a while and you are left with a door stop. Why does Home Depot not carry spare remotes like remotes for TVs etc?... Junk manufacturer.

This is one of the best solution to do, look for unit who have same model as your unit( to your friends or neighbors) and test your remote control. If it work in another unit with same model then the remote control is defective, but if it works then its the receiver.

But try this solution first, if there is a reset button in your remote try to reset it then try the remote to your unit.

You are just missing one wire to all the circuits. The ones that work are good ... add the one wire that is not hooking up to the others to complete a serial circuit.

Hunter fan works light broken

Check to make sure light wires are connected at light kit & remote. Otherwise it's probably a bad receiver. If there is a pull chain for the light pull it once & try the remote light button again.

Fan light turns on but doesn't turn off with remote also fan doesn't go on with remote

Make shure your batteries are good in the remote. Also some remotes have little dip switchers inside the battery cover that are either on or off. They must be in the same position as the dip switches on the receiver in the top canopy of the ceiling fan or the remote & receiver won't talk to each other. Apart from that you will probably need to replace the remote control & receiver unit.

Hunter ceiling fan (model no. 25736) and light not starting

Home Depot sells universal remote systems (transmitter and receiver) for around $30 (in Delaware & Pennsylvania) -- don't know price in Chicago).

I'd just replace it. Hunter may be correct that they are the only source for the receiver, but if you get a new transmitter as well, you don't need their receiver. The labor is the same either way.

Hunter ceiling fan remote problem

You will most likely need to replace the receiver with a new one from hunter. The receiver is actually a complete controller and contains the receiver, relays (which you hear clicking) and starting condensors(large capacitors which hold a charge that is "dumped" over the windings to get the motor to start from a dead stop). These appear to be pretty tightly assembled unless you have a desire to start replacing parts "off the board."

Fan is Erratic

Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.

Remote control stopped working

Under the dome (where the electrical connections are) is the receiver unit for the fan. It could be that it is no longer working. Also the remote may have dip switches to change the frequency channel (sometimes located behind the batteries) check that these have not been changed or check they correspond to the receiver unit on the fan.
